Although Giovanni's formation is in classical music, his passion has always been rock. "The process of making this album was not an easy one, it took more than two years to finish it, but it has been an awesome experience." Giovanni wrote the lyrics and the music for all the songs except for one cover song written by Depeche Mode.

Music producer and sound engineer Alexis Pérez helped put all the pieces together, giving it a great organic and solid sound. He also recorded most of the guitar work in this production.
