"Heroes is inspired by the events that are now in the news in the world and is dedicated to all those people who defend their history, their families, their lands and above all the heroes who risk their lives in the wars of this century. Music is a auditory film that reflects the feelings of human beings who have gone through situations of war and attacks with massive weapons. The musical evolution is remarkable in relation to their previous works and it is precisely this direction that marks the new facet of Murky Claw, preserving the essence of the their 'guaro metal' with alternative elements and the explosive melody that has characterized them since their creation". - Mention the band.
