The goal is to touch different aspects of emotion. Influences are spontaneous, the only constant is an attempt at solid, head banging metal/hard rock.
Started as two projects, Skepsis and Arshreddian Orchestra. The sounds were entirely different. Skepsis was pure metal, while AO pushed the edges of progressive... I don't know what. Recently though, the Skepsis sound has started to shift towards a medium between Skepsis and AO. So I felt that I needed to specify the differences in sound with separate names for each. Thus, Cynical Whiskey was created for all those songs in the middle.
