Well, it’s a long story.
We planned to record two songs with Paul and Phil of ELIXIR and one of them was “Chaos Rising”. The guys came to Poland for few days and we recorded two songs together. Sadly, one of them just got lost in the studio by accident. And why did we choose this song? I think, it’s the best song by CIRITH UNGOL and it fits perfectly to CRYSTAL VIPER!

We heard a lot of good words from one of the musicians of CIRITH UNGOL. You know, it was great to hear, that he liked our version!

Lyrics of the title track are based on the Elric tales (about the relationship between Elric and Stormringer, to be exact), while the other song entitled “When Are You” was inspired by the story of Erekose and Ermizhad.
