Album Notes
The winner of the 2010 BlizzCon Original Song Contest, this piece is inspired by one of the most complex and strangely endearing villains, Sarah Kerrigan - the self-styled Queen of Blades - from the video game StarCraft.

A little about our beginnings:

I had decided to travel the world. You see, I needed to find my muse. For no drought of ink, I realized I could wrest neither note nor phrase from my pen without this inspiration.

So I tried, first, a period of seclusion in the Amazon rainforest. I tried a long walk atop the Wall of China. I even tried a week's stay in an Alaskan igloo. And though I thought I had given up there - frozen and alone in my kingdom of ice - I did find my muse at last. I found her in Paris, France.

I was in the Palais Garnier, the Paris Opera House. I wanted to experience a masterful work in a place of real beauty. It was my final chance for redemption. Chopin's Op. 11 was playing before me and I was wholly entranced. Nothing else existed. I saw a ballet of hands dancing over the keys. I saw a triumphant salute of bows beckoning my enraptured gaze. And then, I saw something else. In the highest balcony to my right, something stole my attention.

It was her. My Muse. I forgot where I was. I forgot my own name. And, for the first time in my life, I forgot about the music. She could not even see me but her power was clear and I knew that I needed her. That I wanted her.

And that's all there is to tell of our beginning. In the interminable fever since that moment, we have become one - an irrepressible force - and in our union, reborn, the grace of romantic era classical music against the fury of alternative rock: Galt Aureus.

Galt Aureus (pronounce Galt as rhyming with halt, Aureus as AHR-ee-us) is...
