Tamás Kátai comments: "This is ‘Sgùrr’ in full. The matter is never silent. It has been carrying the pure, clean cadence in its droning corridors for millions of years and who ever heard it, will always hear what mountains murmur and water sings."

"The title of this album derives from Scottish Gaelic and means 'the top of a mountain'," Tamás Kátai explains. "Yet most of the songs are equally about water, mountains, their interrelationship and the symbols attached to them - inspired by the Scottish Highlands and weird enough the Hungarian Lowlands. There are not many vocal lines at all, but when there occur, they are not pleasant. Compare to previous albums this music is mostly unfriendly, bristling and cold compared to the previous albums. I guess everything is more metal this time."
