"Portugal's black metal scene has been exploding as of late...Porto's Nevoa have been making waves as well, though of a decidedly more progressive nature. Their take on the genre is a bit more dynamic—there's a much heavier emphasis on experimental song structures, innovative percussion, and brooding atmosphere than one would expect from one of their geographical peers, and it's a breath of fresh air to ears more used to being sandblasted whenever the "Portuguese black metal" label appears.

As the band explained, "'Pale and Frail, He Stands' serves as a transition between our previous record and what we aim to do in the future. Lyrically, the song refers to the frailty of the human mind and how easily it can be corrupted and torn apart by a sense of distorted reality, solitude and alienation."" - Noisey/Kim Kelly
