Clocking in at just over one hour, vocalist Mikkel Sandager commented on the album, “We made what we feel is the most powerful album in the band’s history.

We can’t wait for people to check out the new stuff, and look forward to playing it all live.” The Hours That Remain will be packaged with beautiful artwork by Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth).
