Guitar player Stefano Benfante comments: “At beginning we were thinking about a concept album, but the band wasn’t ready yet. All these tracks are written by me and then developed with the rest of the band. We wanted to create a cold atmosphere, but not following the classical direction of old school black metal”.

“Elements’ Blackest Legacy” features a more powerful and black metal-oriented sound along with a cold and sidereal dimension. Death/black metal riffs, epic synths sound and violent growls/screams are the elements for a blackest legacy of a new black metal era.
The album was produced by ShadowThrone and mixed and mastered by Riccardo Studer (STORMLORD). The obscure artwork was created by dark/occult artist Nestor Avalos (DARK FUNERAL, ROTTING CHRIST, MOONSPELL, VITAL REMAINS, a.o.).
