Following on the notion that one can never reach full potential out in the open being a slave at heart it all comes down to – plain and simple – rising above and stepping over and beyond all force-fed limitations in order to accomplish honest satisfaction, fulfillment and unsuppressed growth as an individual.” – about the concept behind the lyrics comments Darky, a long-time friend of the band considered to be its spirit member who has also contributed to the lyrics.

To accompany the fierce and powerful lyrical content of “The I”, we developed an equally strong-minded visual concept resembling the appearance of medieval scriptures. It refers to the intense religious critique omnipresent in each song and depicts the ancient spirit of rebellion at the same time.

The cover illustration reflects the general notions of the album – centrality, elucidation and guidance. In the center of the image, the Devilish Impressions’ sigil represents the band’s everlasting propaganda of the aforementioned philosophy. The morning star on top of the sigil radiates enlightenment and wisdom upon and through the darkness of religion and blind belief.

Each lyric is coupled with an old engraving modified in a certain way to create a stronger bond with the text. The carefully crafted typography and layout reinforce the antique and authentic look of the artwork.” comments Infected Minds, the entity responsible for the album’s cover illustration, artwork and layout.

Recorded at various studios, including Dobra12 (drums) and Icaros Studio (guitars) the disc was mixed and mastered at Impressive Art Studio by Przemyslaw Nowak who also handled vocals recording sessions and guitars’ re-amping. The album’s artwork, design and layout were created by Infected Minds. Photo session by Robert Zembrzycki and Pawel Kowalski of Bandphoto.pl

The album features special guest appearances by MERCYFUL FATE / KING DIAMOND’s guitarist Mike Wead and by Norway’s dark metal masters AETERNUS’ vocalist / guitarist Ares. Other artists who also contributed to the record are shamanic ritual meditative experimental act BÖN and Impressive Art Studio’s owner Przemyslaw Nowak who came up with interludes, additional background tunes and effects.

The title chosen, “The I”, for the record is not only a phonetic acronym of the band’s name, but above all it reflects the manifesto they stand for since the Horde’s inception in the year 2000 – the notion of freedom of choice and will. A supremacy of an individual over any external factors being imposed on us by others, with special emphasis on convictions, dogmas and paradigms. “The I” is a rebellious manifesto targeted against all those who stand opposed to anything that drives us towards individual perfection.

Album został zarejestrowany w kilku miejscach: Dobra12 Studio (perkusja), Icaros Studio (gitary) oraz Impressive Art Studio, gdzie pod okiem Przemysława Nowaka zreampowano gitary i nagrano wokale, po czym całość poddano miksom i masteringowi. Okładkę, layout i artwork zaprojektował Infected Minds. Za sesję zdjęciową odpowiadają Robert Zembrzycki i Paweł Kowalski z Bandphoto.pl.

Na płycie gościnnie wystąpili gitarzysta MERCYFUL FATE i KING DIAMOND Mike Wead oraz Ares, wokalista norweskich pionierów dark metalu AETERNUS. Obok w/w swoje piętno na „The I” odcisnęli także muzycy enigmatycznego projektu BÖN (shamanic ritual meditative experimental) oraz właściciel Impressive Art Studio, Przemysław Nowak, odpowiedzialny za intra oraz dodatkowe dźwięki i efekty.

Tytuł albumu, „The I”, to nie tylko fonetyczny akronim nazwy zespołu (The I = DI), ale też, przede wszystkim, bezpośrednie odzwierciedlenie manifestu, którego sztandary grupa niesie ze sobą od początku istnienia – manifestu gloryfikującego pojęcie wolności wyboru i niczym nieograniczonej woli. To memoriał głoszący wyższość jednostki ponad jakimikolwiek czynnikami zewnętrznymi narzucanymi nam przez innych. „The I” to niepokorny manifest skierowany przeciwko wszystkim stojącym w opozycji względem tego, co pomaga nam w nieustannym doskonaleniu samych siebie…
