This music once shaped us and the marks it left will forever keep itching. DESULTORY never died, it just went down deep below and beneath the surface it slowly kept growing. Throughout the years, there are many of you out there who never stopped waiting, asking the same question over and over. Now when we finally meet again, "Counting Our Scars" feels like liberation, the bleeding is over. This album is for all of us who never stopped waiting." More info at
