|“||Working on the video was quite hard and very intensive, but we all had good time also.I think the final effect is original and interesting. That's because we tried to do it unconventional, in a different way than most of metal videos are made. We have a lot of film material that we naturally weren't able to use it during almost 4 minutes of this track but it is quite good to be used in other project. Mastermind of "Besz Film" - talented and rewarded many times - Beniamin Szwed - was so impressed with the stuff we shot so he decided to make short film to be presented at independent film festivals.||”|

The album is a concept album describing apocalyptic events where an ancient extraterrestrial civilization known as the "Rye’eh-X’D’aah" ransack the Earth, enslave, and transform humanity.
From the album line notes:
Crionics - Neuthrone - Introduction
"Thousands of years before Christ, the extraterrestrial civilization of Rye’eh-X’D’aah – the Demiurgs who since the beginning of time had been wandering in search of the Harbour (the optimal climate conditions and resources to enable their Great System to function most efficiently) one day encountered Mother Earth. Unfortunately, the atmosphere and lack of technology (neutron-climate control and extermination technology was still being developed) made it impossible to take control of the planet and settle on it. The Rye’eh-X’D’yh devised a lengthy but effective and safe solution to the problem. After series of tests and experiments, Leaders’ Council selected a few hundred of the best-developed, healthiest specimens of both sexes of Homo sapiens. They were taken along on the next part of the voyage, most of which they spent in cryogenic chambers, being reproduced, experimented on and modified genetically, so that their new fathers could raise a new species, the Homo superior, a doomsday device in he hands of the Demiurgs…"
