Speaking about ‘Scarlet Haze’, guitarist / vocalist Paul Visser says: “We’ve always loved filthy riffs and heavy songs, but huge, melodic tracks have a vital place in our sonic landscape – ‘Scarlet Haze’ is one of those. We can’t wait to hear you screaming the chorus back to us at a live show. We’re so excited for people to hear Tempus Veritas and explore the new musical worlds which we’ve had such a great time crafting.
“Lyrically this song is written from the point of view of the first human in space – Yuri Gagarin. In his final moments aboard the test flight on which he would ultimately lose his life, he contemplates the stars above him – realising he will never reach them again.”

On new album Tempus Veritas, he continues: “Interwoven with the fabric of our history as a species are countless opportunities for stories. Little pieces of imagined narrative, set within events we all collectively know as historical, that seek to explore what it means to be human – this is the idea behind Tempus Veritas. Whereas Semaphore looked to the future, this record reinvents the past, wondering what it was like to be inside the mind of a person living through times of consequence. Musically, we continue to seek the boundary between the savagely technical and the undeniably beautiful and attempt to push it as far as possible. We poured our entire creative beings into making this album – we sincerely hope you enjoy it.”
