I founded Penitent in order to have a formation to where my poems could be expressed in a different manner than through books. By having the combination of music and poetry there was the possibility to build upon the atmsphere within the written words, thus enhancing their feelings and emotions. I can't say that I would never release a book or something, as that might happen, all I am saying is just that I don't think it will be done in a normal manner, much rather in a special packaging, maybe enclosed to a CD with music.
I guess one could say that "Songs of Despair" is the most strange/weird and experimental album that Penitent has done. Much of it was due to the collaboration with Bernt Sunde. The metal parts were heavily influenced by his work. When working on "Songs of Despair" we just wanted to do something that Penitent hadn't done before. So for me it was a big experiment we did, and it is up to the others to judge if it was a good experiment or not, if the result is worth listening to or not.
Some dreams should be shared and some are better kept to yourself. The sort of dreams that should be shared are more like those dealing with what we want for one's own life, the goals one wants to achieve/reach in life, as those dreams can be supported by the people around you, and that way one could be closer to making the dreams come true. Then the dreams will become reality.
