Teodasia weave sound experiences that are shaped by Light. The path they track is there to be walked on with vigour. On the way, food for the Soul. A Guide from a different dimension leads the way. Here is what Teodasia is all about.
The style of the music is syncretic. There is a base of metal, of rock with symphonic and epic accents. The tracks vary from having passionate and evocative melodies and eerie keys to having heavy sonority, dynamic intensity, and firepower. The orchestration is the key feature of the sound, the one that allows the music to take epic proportions. The sound is very clean, articulate and flowing, and there are sections without voice where the listener can enter the spirit of the lyrics and fully embrace the sound.
In line with the lyrical vocation of the compositions, the lyrics conceived in each track are evocative and can support multiple readings, which are different but also compatible. The band aims with their message to speak to a variety of different people who can relate to the message at one level at least. It is a good example of how several sensibilities can be composed without having to frustrate the personal beliefs in anybody. The band recruits imagery from as many sources as possible (there are Biblical themes, mythological themes, and themes from all sorts of other traditions) to strengthen the power and impact of the message they want to bring across. They are shaping a possible way on how to go about things in life, knowing that chaotic systems nowadays have brought confusion, and the direction to take when walking a path is not so simple to see anymore. The direction the band intends to take is that of looking (and moving) up, towards the Sun!
'Upwards', Teodasia's debut album - featuring a guest appearance of Fabio Lione from Rhapsody of Fire – has been released on the 30th of March 2012.
