Mens Rea 06:08
nothing but guilt inside me she used to bend me black dirty guilt later that night I saw them I saw them crying they were dying nothing but cold and darkness I slowly acted like an hungry wolf later that night I came back to watch them dying in the red snow nothing but a nice weakness before I get stronger and do it again later that night exausthed I've enjoyed the breeze of their last breath only oppressive sadness liquid monster running burning my skin close to madness silence and a portrait on the floor shattered as their poor clothes as my love fallin' down she said me not my son I'm sorry there's no mercy no remorse for what I've done then I dragged their bodies out of the door while an high gloomy moon weeped she's weeping
Melancholie 03:53
Fragments 03:41


"Mens Rea” from our second album "Comorbidity”, is one of our most important songs.

With it we reached a complete balance between our views of music.
We have then celebrated this goal with this EP and an official videoclip!

Included are the original “Mens Rea" and two alternative instrumental versions.
