Commenting on the inspiration for the new single, vocalist/bassist, Willow says; “the concept for the song comes from the term “Simulacrum” or “Simulacra”. This term is usually used when referring to art as a median, however I thought it worked really well when used while referring to psychopathy and the slow descent into madness. Specifically one person’s struggle with multiple personalities and lack of control as to which one you “Are”.
With regards to ‘Simulacra’ giving a good indication as to where AeSect are going creatively, he says; “The album itself is not a concept album so each track has its own theme and vibe, but album is fully loaded with low and slow, heavy, fast, thrashy and groovy riffs, the rest of the guys sync really well musically throughout the album, it’s a joy to watch at times. It’s clear they’ve been playing together for years and share a lot of common influences, which get a subtle nod throughout. I like to think that I throw the odd curve ball in with regards to direction and my influences”.
For now the band are slowly drip-feeding new tracks and have not decided on a concrete release date for the full LP.
