TAKING A BREAK / BREAK UP!!!
For the first time since the birth of Astral Carneval in late 2002 we have
come to a point where we feel that things radically need to happen.
Sometimes things don't always happen by themselves..
For that reason we need to break loose from stagnation and
find inspiration, energy and most of all motivation.
Yes, we have decided to put the band on ice for an uncertain time.
Some times you just need to catch your breath and that is exacly what we intend to do.
If it takes 5 weeks, 5 months or even 5 years, the time will be nessecary,
bacuse we feel that if we can't do this at 100%, we shouldn't do it at all!
That is basically the reason for this BREAK / BREAK UP!
So until then.. We'll se ya' in a nother pit somewhere...
THANX FOR ALL THE FUN YEARS AND KEEP THRASHING!!!
//Lalle, Magnus, Fluff, Kenneth & Paul.
