Album Notes
\"In water, final Lord\"

At an unspecified future in the depths of the ocean, the engulfed structures of man remain standing. Beneath the spires, stoic brass melodies resonate against the once-powerful dome. Among the singing of whales, like counterpoint from the depths, we can still hear the monk-like chant of the sunken cathedral echoing the final days of man. Modal and pentatonic themes with parallel chord movement sing a new praise to the adage that nature will always win.

From deep within the ocean\'s abyss comes a melody, \"The Garden I long for\" - a title inspired by one of the last paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. Kostas Grigoreas, an eminent member of the Greek guitar fraternity and one of the most serious figures in the field of classical guitar, performs this haunting refrain.

En Espaniol

\"In water, final Lord\"

En un futuro indeterminado en las profundidades del océano, las sumergidas estructuras del hombre por intentar permanecer de pie. Bajo la torre, las melodías estoicas resuenan en el latón contra la poderosa cúpula. Entre el canto de las ballenas, como contrapunto de las profundidades, todavía podemos escuchar el canto del monje como el eco vano de la catedral anunciando los últimos días del hombre. Temas con acordes pentatónicos y modales con movimientos paralelos cantan alabanzas al adagio de la naturaleza permanente.

Desde las profundidades del abismo surge una melodía, “The Garden I long for”, un titulo inspirado en una de las últimas pinturas de Vincent Van Gogh. Kostas Grigorias, un eminente miembro de la fraternidad de la guitarra griega y una de las más serias figuras en el campo de la guitarra clásica, al interpretarla se abstiene de su inconfundible estilo.

Este jardín tiene los elementos japoneses que Van Gogh amaba. Escalas asiáticas y gongs acompañan el murmullo de las guitarras que se arrastran a través de la pieza como una escuela coloreada de peces brillantes

“Heridas profundas, mares vastos que golpean y devanan.”

Los diversos colores y humores del pincel del océano se hacen eco en “The Loon-Thalassa Mix”. La voz de Lori Lewis simboliza el faro estable de la canción, mientras la evocación visual choca contra las olas y el agua brillante inunda los momentos finales de la canción

This garden has the Japanese elements that Van Gogh loved. Asian scales and gongs accompany murmuring guitars that sweep through the piece like brightly colored schools of fish.

\"Deep wounds, vast seas that rack and crash.\"

The various colors and moods of the ocean\'s paintbrush are echoed in \"The Loon - Thalassa Mix\". Lori Lewis\'s voice symbolizes the stable lighthouse of the song, while the visual evocation of crashing waves and glittering water flood the final moments of the song.

It's short, but sweet nonetheless!
Here is a short four-track EP built on their latest album Dawn of the New Athens. This disc takes on something of an underwater theme, featuring samples from whale vocals and the overall mood becoming much more subdued. The whole concept and style lends itself more to the ethereal and goth realms though the solid metal foundation remains intact, along with the recognizable symphonic metal style this band has come to be known for. It's short, but sweet nonetheless. structures of these pieces are similar enough to recognize from the originals, but different enough to make it worth picking them up and enjoying to their full potential. This is dark and moody, yet dreamy and ethereal symphonic metal as only Aesma Daeva can do.

"Tisza's Child (Sunken Cathedral)" kicks off this work in much the same fashion as the original with the exception of the added underwater whale vocal samples. The percussion is much more medieval sounding with timpane rather than a heavy bass and snare kick, the crashing cymbals are still there along with the grinding metal guitars, though it takes a bit longer to build up to this style than the original. This is truly an excellent, dreamy track from this band and an excellent remix that fans will love. "The Garden I Long For" is unique to this disc and is an excellent addition to this artist's library. It very slowly builds once again through the calls of whales and underwater abyss and is dominated by some beautiful classic acoustic guitar that is absolutely stunning and in their own way become the unspoken vocals for this instrumental piece. "Loon" appears twice to finalize the disc with two different mixes. The "Thalassa" mix is a dreamy, ethereal version of this track with the occasional symphonic brass and strings kicking in once in a while for the occasional accent. The "Swamp" mix is dark and moody, moving slowly along adding first just some subtle instruments, then grinding guitar and subtle bass. All of this builds to the heavier, dark metal sound as it continues to slowly move along, building more and more to a climax for an excellent take on this piece.

It's short, but sweet nonetheless. The structures of these pieces are similar enough to recognize from the originals, but different enough to make it worth picking them up and enjoying to their full potential. This is dark and moody, yet dreamy and ethereal symphonic metal as only Aesma Daeva can do.
