about

"Among the ruins" did very well saleswise, so i took the risk of pressing the next album on a real glassmastered CD. So this is the first "real" album from TPROE.

A lot of comments were made about the topic of this album. It's about North Korea and its politics and leaders. personally i have always been fascinated by dictatorial regimes and ideology, despite my nihilist stances, and North Korea is undoubtly the most fascinating in this regard. So after reading in on the topic i worked on these 10 tracks (the intro is a propaganda song from the DPRK) and these winded up on the album.

The CD did catapult us further in the international industrial scene. We also got contacted by someone from the Korean Friendship Association (world wide friendship organisation devoted to promoting the ideal of Juche) who was into industrial, and liked the fact we made an album about the DPRK. Those are the nice compliments!
