Guitarist Ian McConnell says, "'Seirenes' really encapsulates the sound we were trying to achieve for this record. We were firing on all cylinders at this point in the writing process so it was all very visceral."

Formed in 2010, ZAIUS explores a lighter, more melodic side of the members' musical tastes without abandoning the metal tendencies that come natural to them. ZAIUS first arrive on the scene withAll Your Friends Are Dead, the band's 2011 debut EP, which showcased a fine mix of dense and morose guitar playing. 2013's Divided By Tides EP came next and pushed things further, adding in soaring melodies. The album was met with glistening reviews, with MetalSucks proclaiming, "the world needs more instru-metal bands like ZAIUS, who steer completely clear of djent while still managing to bring the groove (via Maserati), atmospherics (via Constants, If These Trees Could Talk, etc) and the heavy (via Scale the Summit). Bomb."
Illustrations for the album were created by Marald Van Haasteren (Baroness, Kylesa) whose style is as colorful and alive as these tracks were meant to be.
