After Mauricio Bustamente left Reign of the Architect back in August, he started working on his new production and multinational band Exxiles. Mauricio comments:
"This production will reflect how sometimes we are exile in life by simple or great things when we are betrayed by something we believed in. At the end there is only one result, abandonment.
"With pain… With anger… With passion, you discover that you learn how to rise, to liberate and fight for the things you believe in once again, at that moment the exile transforms into something that makes you stronger while you leave it behind, to keep walking towards some other kind of exile. That is the reason of Exxile.
"The first album of the band will be a conceptual album and it will talk about loyalty. Loyalty should be a symbol of friendship, politics, religion, love… It will have a lot of stories but at the end they will all have the same direction to become one. It will show how loyalty becomes weak when personal interests are involved in it. More...
