Development[edit]

In an interview with Global Domination, Johnsson said that the album title is a reference to the twin star to the ordinary Sirius A. The star "was firstly discovered by western society in quite modern times, while an African tribe called the Dogons (living in Mali) had knowledge about it since ancient times and claim to have been visited by "people" (entities) from that stellar system."[1]

The album makes references to ancient culture and mythology:
