Darkness is an interesting thing, really. It's nothing more than the absence of light. It's commonly represented in paintings and in our own minds by the color black, which in and of itself is comprised of pigments which will not reflect light. Half of the globe is shrouded in it at any given time. It blinds us. Confuses us. Even frightens us. We use it to describe evil. However, from what I've seen, it's not the darkness that we need to be afraid of. What we should really fear is that which comes out in the darkness. And usually, there's nothing to stop that same faceless terror from showing itself in the light. It can also be said that darkness helps to make a blinding spotlight out of even the dimmest glimmer of light. That's where this album truly finds itself and myself. As an aside, a number of these songs are emerging from the darkness of my archive where they were nearly doomed to spend eternity in an unfinished state. This project gave me a reason to revitalize them and finish them with my new goal in mind. While some may view the title "In The Darkness" as being negative or depictive of some truly disturbed side of me, it isn't. In the 11 months that I spent working on this album, I learned a lot about myself, human nature, perception, light, and darkness.
