"Paintropy is a word that combines the concepts of Pain and Entropy" - says guitarist Piero Paravidino, "and it refers to a chaotic and painful state of mind, coming from the aggregation of negative events or emotions. In turn, this state can cause a reaction of total inertia or the exact
opposite, unleashing a downright furious transformation. These concepts will be depicted both in the songs and in the graphics of the album."
Paintropy is scheduled for a spring 2013 release via Punishment 18 Records, marking the 25th anniversary of Mesmerize.
