Shrouded Day is an eclectic New Age/Folk Rock/Pop/Instrumental project based in the Heartland of America. Influenced by such disparate artists as Kitaro, Jethro Tull, Steve Roach, Amethystium, Mannheim Steamroller, Aphex Twin and Nine Inch Nails, Shrouded Day has evolved its own sound that creates moods and atmospheres familiar to us all. Quattuor Universitas is Shrouded Day's second album and is fully instrumental.
Machina, the accidental artifice, the upstart bastard child of efficiency and progress, has come to a distressing conclusion: the universe is imperfect. The great beast Entropy stalks them with cruel calculation, and for all their cold logic, they are afraid. In their arrogance and desperation, they set out to eradicate the imperfections of the realms, thus immortalizing the universe and themselves with it.
Aquaticus, the realm of water, the endless flowing sage of all beings, sees in its oceanic wisdom the dark path the machines are about to take . . . but does nothing.
Comes the dawn as the sun sets the vast forests awash with golden light . . .
