Persona Non Grata Discusses New Album "Quantum Leap" Concept

Persona Non Grata's new album "Quantum Leap" - produced by John Ioannidis and Chris Gatsos - was recorded, mixed and mastered at the Goldmine Studios in Athens, with Marina Tzima responsible for the design and the artwork. The band's vocalist Aris has now opened up about the background of the album:

"The idea of Quantum Leap came from the following example: Some people think that a quantum leap is a particularly large leap.

"This is incorrect or better it's not completely correct. In fact, in quantum physics, where the expression came from, a quantum leap is usually a very tiny leap indeed, often smaller than the diameter of the nucleus of an atom.

"But the major characteristic that makes a leap 'quantum' is that this leap from A to B point is made without passing through any of the points between A and B.

"Imagine that you enter a bus in A-city. You sit in your seat, and the bus is instantly transported to your destination of B-city. You just made a quantum leap. The bus didn't pass through any point between A-city and B-city.

"Now, in real life you can't see a 'quantum leap' just because it really does not exist. So, why is this all related with PERSONA NON GRATA?

"The release of the 1st CD was a big step for the band as we signed with the US label Sensory, although we came from nowhere. It was then that we began to act as a real band. Changes were made in the vocals and the bass, and we formed as a live band ready for playing gigs.

"Massacre [Records] established our rise with the release of our new album. This was an even bigger step for us, a large increment and it took a lot of effort!

"Nevertheless the rest of the world should see this as a 'quantum leap,' a transition from point A to point B. Our journey from A to B is represented in this album."
