"The Truth About Lies"
shows our time as it is. Lots of lies and deception, not only in life,
also in music, among the bands. Envy, dirty lies. One can work very hard
for a long time, then comes someone who lies about you and a lot of people
are influenced by it even if it's not true. You can't deny anybody their

"Short Report On The Ritual Carnage"
basically a song describing a slaughterhouse. An extreme, but excellent

a very old song, recorded first in 1988. It still has something to say and
we had an idea of using it on "Lies". It has a new look and the fans still
even dreams can be very hard. Sometimes, a dream is so persuasive, that
one can tell, when awake, whether it was reality or really a dream.
is an instrumental song. I can say that playing guitar has become a drug

I didn't want to include this song anywhere, I just wanted to record it.
Bruno went very enthusiastic about the song and so we put them on the
record, although I was a bit hesitant about it. Now I am glad it's there;
fans like it.
