Drummer/vocalist D. Schlagmeister said of the record and song:
“We wrote a record that eventually became a double-album. That’s almost two full hours of music. From now on you will be able to choose between two evening activities: watching a movie or listening to our record. Please do the latter.
The record is divided into four parts – one per side of vinyl. These parts describe four consecutive eras throughout which the story of the disappearance of all life on Earth is told. The first part focuses on the collapse of human civilization and the headlong technological rush we’re currently in. Taken from the second part, ‘Silent At Last’ depicts the overwhelming strength of vegetation as it overgrows all traces of humankind and devours all animal life with carnivorous lust. We wanted to convey a sense of suffocation, of fear, of being hunted. Augustin’s haunting video captured this perfectly.”
