After a year the band started creating the concept of ‘World of Grey’. Based on the ideas Marc had, Mox took over his task and created the concept for ‘World of Grey’. The band wrote the music with their future live performances in mind. So the music of the band has changed in a sense that there is no longer a second guitar. The void is filled in with keyboards and bass, which makes the music of The Aurora Project more prog rock instead of metal.
The concept ‘World of Grey’ is set around the tension between an established world order and the people, of which the latter will lose out. Through increasing bugging and restrictions on media and Internet, the mouth the people are surreptitiously gagged and freedom curtailed. Democracy is no more and a gray blanket of control and repression descends over the world.
