This is what the guitarist Luke Ashley in Trigger says about their new album;

“Cryogenesis is a science-fiction narrative that addresses the struggle of gods and man. These historical demigods are all too real and not of this world; constantly vying for cultural control and dominion over humanity. Upon the Forge of Hephaestus, Tethered to the Tide and Veins of Ambrosia are excerpts of alien forces exercising their will, whilst Dead Sun and Dysphoria focus on the human psyche. We have created a world akin to our own, referencing important points in human history with a grimmer mythological impact. Sonically, our vision for the album was to bridge the gap between European and American influences, as well as the classic and modern aesthetics of metal. We wanted this to be a dynamic release that highlights the variety of the metal subcultures and throws them into a melting pot. It’s fast but spacious, heavy but contoured, all tied together with melodic strains. We’ve honed a unique identity for this release – we hope people have as much fun listening to Cryogenesis as we did writing it.”
