Thoth’s Girl This is beautiful ! Top notch - no kidding, this fella is dedicated and knows his heart and is imparting it to us. This is for you who are with a heavy heart, you who are a sucker for tragedy and sadness like myself. You may shed a tear or two on this one. Thank you for the melancholic journey ♥️ Favorite track: In the chronicles of mediocre egos.

Jason Breed Great atmospheric epics on par with the likes of Nordic Giants. Soundscapes brilliantly - the musicianship is off the scale - but as I've mentioned before that Greece has a fantastic music scene especially in prog. Favorite track: Purple Midas.

There are stories of life, stories of love and passion, stories of anticipation. In these stories, just like in music, you seek resolution to any tension. Learn to embrace the tension, for you’ll find your real self in it. Tension is the creative period for all the stories you’ll tell. Thank you everybody for the support.

Ilias.

Track Name: Purple Midas
I scream
for the mornings, that have yet to come

All the colors of the dawn
reek of hell

For you see the pain in me
For you see the darkness

You see the pain in me
you see the darkness
Track Name: .existence
"A man finds himself, to his great astonishment, suddenly existing, after thousands and thousands of years of non-existence [...]
The whole foundation on which our existence rests is the present-the ever-fleeting present. It lies, then, in the very nature of our existence to take the form of constant motion [...]
Then again, how insatiable a creature is man! Every satisfaction he attains lays the seeds of some new desire, so that there is no end to the wishes of each individual will. And why is this?"

Million of thoughts
scattered to earth
Plain distractions, loneliness

As I sit in the dark thinking of you
The pain remains
We'll cease to exist
