THE NEW ALBUM
The 2nd Album of Mind Departure, called "Something’s Rotten in the State", is a concept album. Fourteen individual tracks, completely independent, that reveal the story of a very "special" man, when placed in the right order.
A simple and very familiar story to all of us. It’s the journal of a man with a vision to change the world that dares to take action. We follow the journey of a man that overcame social inertia.
We observe his rise and how he deals with power and corruption. We overhear his inner conflicts. We witness his fall by his followers’ betrayal that leads to his final chapter, his sacrifice.
