Furthermore the band wanted to share some more news and feelings regarding the new album with all of you:
“Orietur in tenebris lux tua
From darkness, your light will be born
Life is the way
I will find my own way or I will draw it myself
As I reap what I have sown
I am human and all what happens to other human beings concerns me
Submerged I re-emerge
Through hardships to the stars
Up our hearts
Let the Light shine
Per aspera ad astra
“In November 2015, we entered our new recording studio without any idea, any thread of notes in mind, completely empty as channels ready to be filled by grace.
Within a period of 7 months, 12 new musical pearls are born driven by a powerful inspiration, free and cleansing as the wind, deep and sensitive as the sea waters, passionate and courageous as a burning flame, rich and welcoming as a fertile land. A force full of nuances, full of scents made us draw this album, so intimate, poetic and, at the same time, majestic. In the darkest nights of our life, obscurity sharpens our subtle sight so we are able to see more clearly the firmament, slivers of insight make us lift our eyes up to the deep blue sky opening our heart and mind to an interior guidance.
“Deep Blue Firmament” is our trip as sailors before the stars, the firmament is our life-map over a sea of notes, we crossed Autumn, Winter and Spring just to get the destination before the Summer Solstice that’s a door opening on a new phase. These songs bring harmony, magic, awareness and clarity of vision, we are proud to have the chance to share them with you.
Towards greater things!”
