OverviewEdit

The album had two singles ahead of its release. First out in April 2013 was the song "Under the Gun" featuring vocals by Leigh Nash,[1] which also featured a remix by Rank 1 and the first music video for Conjure One, shot in Iowa and Tennessee. The second single, "Still Holding On" (released in September 2013), featured vocals by Aruna and remixes by Arisen Flame, Clinton Van Sciver, Mike Shiver and well as a chillout mix by Aruna and Rhys Fulber.

About the album, Fulber said, "I had been thinking about the concept of the Holocene epoch for a while - the ruins of civilization that a decaying society leaves behind to be once again consumed by nature. The word itself is a bit dry and one day the word play just came together and was written down to be rediscovered a couple years later as this album took shape. It then seemed like the perfect title for this collection of songs, and directly inspired the artwork which perfectly conveys the feeling of the music."[4]
