For her third record, Aurora avidly drew inspiration from Greek mythology. Despite the fact that she herself Axnes characterised her studio work as. "pretty absurd."a huge investment of effort and love for the fans here. This is a fantastic disc about shame, desire and morality. Each track introduces the listener to new gods.

"The spiritual door between man and the gods is a very complicated thing. In the right hands faith can be the most beautiful thing, but in the unskilful hands it can be a beacon of war and death."

Aurora continues, "We humans are not perfect or flawless. Each of us is simply human. Can we find the divine power within ourselves while remaining attached and seduced by the wonders of the world? I've been thinking a lot about Prometheus and how he stole fire to mould us - humans. And it seems to me that we have become very focused on our outer qualities, losing sight of that inner fire. It is very important to remember it, because it is our inner self, the most important part of every human being...".
