Arhat presents the single The Great Unknown!

The track will be included in our second full-length album, which we are currently working on.

This song continues the cycle of mysteries of ancient Egypt. She tells us about the trials during her initiation into the priesthood. The price of failure in this test is death.

Our candidate must distinguish truth from illusion, master his fears and instincts, relying only on himself and his knowledge. Only in this way will he emerge victorious from this test.

This track acquired special meanings and meanings for us. After all, at the beginning of any case, we are similar to our candidate.

We are alone in our aspirations, discouragement and criticism from others drag us down and make us want to abandon what we have started, to give up.

But step by step, continuing our work, learning to trust our inner “I”, relying on our strengths and adhering to our beliefs – we will definitely achieve the desired result.

Believe in yourself, be brave, act and achieve what you want!
