Additional recording on "Cine iubeşte şi lasă" at Esoteron Studio.

All music and lyrics written by Sakis, except "Cine iubeşte şi lasă" (Romanian traditional song), arranged and adapted by Suzana & Eleni Vougioukli.

North American release date: March 5th, 2013.

The title means "True to His Own Spirit" in English. The same sentence can also be seen on Jim Morrison's tombstone, again in Greek.

The lyrics to "Χ ξ ς'" are based on the book of revelation of Saint John the Divine.
"Χ ξ ς'" is 666 in the greek numeral system.

The numeral 666 (DCLXVI in Roman numerals which like Greek represents numbers with alphabetic letters) in ancient Greek was represented as χξς (Chi, Xi and Vau).

Κατά τον δαίμονα εαυτού Comments

level   (90/100)
I'm telling you, these Greeks are one of the most gifted Melodic Black Metal writers. They may face some financial issues but musically no ordinary band can beat 'em.
level   (80/100)
기대에는 못 미치지만 여전히 훌륭하다.
level   (90/100)
기타선율은 SepticFlesh같은 느낌이 나면서 상당히 세련되고 고급스러운 블랙이다 맘에 든다
level   (90/100)
상당히 독특한 느낌의 블랙. 맘에 든다
level   (85/100)
전작보다 훨씬 독특한 느낌이 줄어서 좋았던 작품!
level   (85/100)
기존의 노선에 약간 변화를 가미하여 독자적인 스타일을 추구해낸 작품. 크게 기대했던 정도보단 별로였다.
