Talking about “Kingdom Come“, the band hinted at a deeper meaning;

‘In the darkest of times, you need to try and live in your moments and embrace the good things, the simple things in life that happen every day. Don't let the moments pass you by. One day we will all meet our maker, but while we are here, we need to live life to the fullest! Live till Kingdom Come!’ It’s pretty evident that 8APIE are pure artists at heart and are committed to create art. They claim they are not doing this to become big famous rock stars. They are doing this because they want to share REAL DEAL hard rock / metal music that has substance and is lyrically deep and meaningful with real music lovers that appreciate and miss this type of art and production. Recorded at Vibramoon Studios, a state-of-the-art facility owned by 8APIE, the quality and production value exceeds the highest expectations. “Kingdom Come”, has over 100 hours of recording and mixing time alone into it. With an ambitious start, the band aims to release the first album of 11 songs by January 2023.
