Quote of the day: "All the grains sift coarsely through the hour glass and they pound like boulders on the brain. All those things you did for fun, never hurting anyone, careless shadows in the sun, just empty and lame." - Avalon

Greg: "Sinister Rouge [...] was written about the malevolence of the Inquisition and the religious authorities who wore red robes during the Inquisition [. ...] Therefore the rouge I'm speaking of is with us still today, this idea that you can say the wrong thing and you can be punished for your ideas if they go against the traditional or the formal spoken authority in that country. And at that time when we wrote this album of course the formal authority was: you're either with us or you're against us. Something that I wholeheartedly am opposed to and I felt strong enough to write this song Sinister Rouge about the Inquisition still being a part of our lives."
