Track by track commentary (Track 5 out of 10):
Userspace is one of those tracks that originated from an old idea. Last year I was digging through an old hard drive of mine and I found this 30 seconds spacy techno riff I wrote in 2010, probably getting bored of it before moving to something else. Listening to it 5 years later was like listening to it for the first time, and it filled my head with so many ideas that I made the track the 6-minutes piece it is now.
It is crazy to think that 5 years ago, I was unconsciously talking to myself from the future, already writing my 5th album while I was barely finishing my 2nd one.
The track is also a more personal approach and was the chance for me to show more of my own emotional side. Userspace is very nostalgic but I didn't want to use too much of the nostalgia clichés. The direction was more focused on the powerful post-metal approach combined with a few synthwave elements. It's some kind of a blend between the two, and something that was new to my ears and made me feel like I want to keep creating things in that direction.
The video was made by Opaque in Cologne, Germany. We only had a few meetings but they made an incredible job at capturing the vibe and the story of the track and even some of the shots were recorded during an actual show!
