Guitarist Dalton Castro details the concept behind “Cradle of the Wicked.”
“This song delves into the human capacity to embrace their worst selves online, in a space where digital impulses and anonymity are intertwined, revealing the darkest facets of human behavior in today’s world. Like distorting history and facts, fostering a culture of general denial, and utilizing humiliation as a tool for self-empowerment, particularly against those who share genuine knowledge. The title serves as an inspiration for individuals with such behavior, who appear to be multiplying every day, becoming increasingly psychologically violent and beastly just for their own pleasure.”
Cradle of the Wicked was recorded, produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden by Fredrik Nordström. Additional engineering and edits by Robert Kukla. Songwriting on Cradle of the Wicked by Dalton Castro, Martin Bellucci, Maurício Velasco. The album was recorded in August 2022.
