And if you can't tell.... I'm still a fan of "the album" as opposed to dropping singles and half assed EPs. Almost all of my albums definitely have specific themes and vibes involved. Everything from the cover art to the track placement to the song names themselves. I consider them bodies of work.
Altered Fates is representative of life and the decisions we make based on the circumstances we are given. I feel as if everything has an energy and everything has wave-like fluidity. So ultimately when you learn to harness that energy to control or change your mindset/situation/thinking, you can ultimately alter your fate(s). If you know me then you know I've had a handful of "life changing" events in the past year that have totally made me reevaluate my outlook on life and what it means to be truly alive; an "altered fate" if you will.
All the existentialism aside....I'm really proud of this album as it contains a wide spectrum of emotions, styles, tones and energies.
So without further ado......From deep within the dark spaces of my warped psyche I present to you......Altered Fates.
