Founding member and guitar player Valerio Æsir Villa states: “In the ‘Exoverse’ storyline, ‘Remember’ is a pause in the protagonist’s journey, an introspective moment in which he recalls his past and wonders how his life will change as soon as he reaches the so called ‘Exoverse’. I hope anyone who is on the way to reach an important goal can reflect him/herself in this track”.
The single ‘Remember’ is taken from VIRTUAL SYMMETRY sophomore full-length album “Exoverse” to be released on June 30th 2020.
“Exoverse” is their first concept album, telling the story about a hero traveling to a new dimension beyond the known universe in order to discover himself.
