about

"My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary— but love it."
Friedrich Nietzsche

This album took me around two months to record, but a whole year to get it released because lots of personal things that I've had to struggle with that made me delay it over and over until it's finally out.
Amor Fati (love for own's fate) is the best description for this album since learning to accept things as they come has been my best learned lesson during these two years of pandemic, and I hope this album helps anyone else out there who struggle with life to change the things that can be changed, and accept those that can not.

THANKS
Thanks to my friend and label-partner Diego Masarotti in Argentina for his hard work on Templo Animal and to Luciano Lamtzev for giving an extra love to my album thru his mastering work.

And last but not least, thank you for listening and supporting.

"Mi fórmula para expresar la grandeza en el ser humano es el amor fati: no querer que nada sea distinto ni en el pasado ni en el futuro ni por toda la eternidad. No sólo soportar lo necesario, y menos aún disimularlo-todo idealismo es mendacidad frente a lo que es necesario, sino amarlo.".
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Este álbum me tomó alrededor de dos meses para grabar, pero un año entero para sacarlo a la venta debido a un sinfín de asuntos cosas personales con las que tuve que lidiar y que me hicieron retrasarlo una y otra vez hasta que finalmente salió.
Amor Fati (amor por el propio destino) es la mejor descripción para este álbum, ya que aprender a aceptar las cosas como vienen, ha sido mi mejor lección aprendida durante estos dos años de pandemia, y espero que este álbum ayude a todos los que luchan con la vida para cambiar las cosas que se pueden cambiar y aceptar las que no.

GRACIAS
Un agradecimiento especial a mi amada Mina Wright por la increíble arte de portada, ella capturó la esencia de mi música a través de ello, y también quiero agradecer a mi amigo y socio de sello Diego Masarotti en Argentina por su arduo trabajo en Templo Animal y a Luciano Lamtzev por haberle dado amor extra a mi álbum a través de su trabajo de masterización.

Y por último, pero no menos importante, gracias a ustedes por escucharnos y apoyarnos.
