Phantom Plant [EP]

Release Notes

The catastrophic earthquake in Japan in March 2011 was an uninvited inspiration for the three songs on this EP. We go backwards in time: "Phantom Plant" is what will happen to Fukushima, either as a ruin or a grave in a concrete coffin.
25 years ago, this is what happened to the sovjet nuclear power plant "Lenin Number Four" in Chernobyl. Everybody was shocked and angry, but no change in paradigms have been noticeable.
Why? Because politicians, economy and we, the consumers, demanded for cheap power and big profit. Everything was justified with a supposed insignificant "Restrisiko" (German euphemism for "remaining risk"). Maybe we really believed or wanted to believe, but reality is not negotiable and now we have to deal with another phantom of our civilization for thousands of years.
