Crossing the Rubicon's first official release under the moniker is a creative and exploratory piece that focuses on concepts such as Sleep Paralysis, Alien Abduction and Dimethyltryptamine.
Each track title reveals a bit of the original vision of the album, to portray the segments of the experience of sleep paralysis and the symbiosis these experiences share with hallucinations and death.
