Final track from ambient EP “The Silence Cometh”

III. Lord of Darkness, God of Nightmares

Darkness fills the sky. Evil powers are summoned. You meet the Lord of darkness, showing you the enchantment of something, that will bring the end to all beings. Is this a dream? Are you awake?Or are all these happenings…within you?

Second track from ambient EP “The Silence Cometh”

II. Pendulum Clock of Modulation
You are standing in a field full of mirrors. In the middle there is a pendulum clock, keeping on ticking. While you are looking around, what’s happening here, time goes on and on.

What happened so far…
In the first part of “The Silence Cometh – 3 Chapters to Redemption” you enjoyed the silence and beautiful landscape of the sea & mountain view. You could relax and forget all your sorrows. Here you can find the full blog post of “Dreaming Sun”

It’s about time.
You still enjoy the clear sky in your field full of mirrors. The pendulum clock is ticking louder now. Suddenly the sky gets grey, then darker. The setting is changing. You look through one of the mirrors and recognize, that the truth lies beneath it. It’s about time…to listen to the track.

First track from ambient EP “The Silence Cometh”

You come home from work after a stressful day and need something to relax. Then play this song, lean back and get 11 minutes of easing. Or even more, if you press repeat.

“Dreaming Sun” is my new instrumental song in ambient style. It’s written in cooperation with Spike, former guitarist from the bands “Accidental Suicide” and “Fist of Sam”.

The song is the first part of an instrumental ambient trilogy and will take you on a journey through a beautiful landscape in relaxing atmosphere. Listen to the wonderful melodies of a sea & mountain view. While starlings in the sky guide you along the path of the truth, you will get insights and a new experience from the tree of wisdom.

In a view days, I will post the second part of the ambient trilogy, where you will walk through a field of mirrors while the ancient pendulum clock moves the time…

06_awakening (working title) lyrics:

Reaching the dark side
I open my new eyes
Now I can see the shadows in me
Repressed in the subconsciousness

Where am I?
Turn on the light
The past has reached me

Where am I
Turn on the light
Are my eyes open right now?

I remember now…

It will never be – like before this disease, it came to our family
This dark empty hall – is the cemetery for my hopes and my will to believe

Believe…me…
Irreversible Process, it divided us in two
I hold your dying hand because I can’t do more for you
The subconsciousness repressed the shadows in my mind
This is my life, this is my life

It will never be like before
In this cemetery God is weak
God is too weak to kill diseases
It will never be like before

It will never be – like before this disease, it came to our family
This dark empty hall

Irreversible Process, it divided us in two
I hold your dying hand because I can’t do more for you
The subconsciousness repressed the shadows in my mind
This is my life, this is my life

The future’s analog – reject Biotechnologies
The future’s analog – reject Neurotechnologies
The future’s analog – reject Digital Technologies
The future’s analog – the future’s analog

It will never be like before
In this cemetery God is weak
God is too weak to kill diseases
It will never be like before

My escapism is a journey inside myself
Property means nothing, knowing is wealth
To find the truth I take this last trip
To leave this world of sickness with the wisdom I equipped

Revealed! The Cover for my Concept Album “Space Escapism Opera”

It’s finished now. This will be the cover for my concept album “Space Escapism Opera”. It is drawn by concept artist “Helge C. Balzer”.

The cover shows the situation in the year 2050, where most people use virtual reality for nearly everything. Work, spare time, games, relationships, sex etc.

The person on the cover died because of a faulty neuro implant and lies dead in his empty room. No one recognizes, because his avatar in the virtual reality is still alive.

The meaning of the eye on the cover? This is still a secret, until the album is finished. Stay tuned!

About Helge C. Balzer: Helge is a freelance illustrator for games, movies and books. He has illustrated for the RPG Pathfinder, Game of Thrones, Hennen’s novel “Die Elfen”, Necromancer and many more. You can see the works on his website www.ars-atra.com
