This EP is my third release featuring the Rafart band. Every track in this album features a special guest musician. Pat Nuño in classical guitars, the jazz vibraphone player Mauricio Gallardo and the electric guitar virtuoso, winner of the Steve Vai Scholarship, Benjamín Lechuga.

This album is inspired in the poem by Saint John of the Cross, as he describes the dark and meaningless period of life in which the individual has to go through in order to achieve a union with god or, in a more modern perspective, unveiling the self.
