ETHS guitarist Staif Bihl comments: “Here we are, the entire album! I’m really glad to finally share it with everybody. Each song has its own universe and I have built Ankaa as a walk through these different atmospheres, like a passage from the oppressive darkness to soothing clarity. I tried to keep the essence of the band but, in the same time, to bring it in places where we’ve never been. I injected a big part of myself in this opus and I hope you’ll like it as much as we do! We want to warmly thank all those who participated in this album, a part of each of us is in here! Faustine Berardo, Sarah Layssac, Jon Howard & Björn Strid for all the additional vocals, Dirk Verbeuren for the drumming, Guillaume Dupré for the percussions, Nelson Leeroy for the mixing, Mobo (Conkrete Studio) for the mastering & Nicolas Senegas for the artwork. This album is dedicated to our friend Isilion …”
