The tracklist runs as follows:

· Heretic Souls
· Psychotic Kingdom
· Dying Race Domain
· In Circles Forever
“Resist To Rebuild” features solo guitar by Jens “Shredmaster JB” Basten (Night In Gales, Gloryful).
Commented lead-vocalist Martin Wittsieker: “Psychotic Kingdom is following the path of our first album in order to add much more intensity and feeling to both the songs and the overall atmosphere. You will find lots of very dark and sad tunes and also some of the most brutal riffs and beats we’ve ever written. It’s just like a 50 minute long demonride dancing in range of all imaginable human emotions!”
“The I-Conception”, the band’s debut album, was released in Summer 2010 and was produced by legendary scene icon Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity). Following it’s release were countless shows with well known acts like eg. Dark Tranquillity, Insomnium, Ghost Brigade, Vader or Sodom, which gained those youngsters a pretty high reputation among the European underground.
