In this new phase, the band, now consolidated as a quintet, joined Norcal Studios, in São Paulo, alongside the renowned producers Adriano Daga and Brendan Duffey, to create this new album. The results are a raw and direct sonority that can be heard throughout the 14 tracks that cross between various rock influences - be it alternative, progressive, classic, metal or grunge -, and even flirting with electronic music in some moments.
"Empty Set" is a reflection about how the individual nullifies himself against many social conditions around him; about the individual that, surrounded by an unending sea of information, is lost in social chaos; about the individual that, increasingly, is treated more as a consumer than as an human being, and becomes just a number, a statistic. The sum of these individuals that should form a society becomes an empty set.
With this album, Deventter manifests, through its music, the unrest caused by the current social and cultural values widespread in Brazil and in the world.
