This is a 5 track EP from Melankolia. The first 3 tracks are original creations of the project. Included is track 3, "Monday's Sorrow", which is a completely new track, and will only be featured on this EP. The last 2 are covers of bands/projects that have inspired me in my journey. This EP is a foreshadowing of what is to come from the full-length album "III", which will release 06/20/12 from Quartier23.
