Empyrium : Songs of Moors and Misty Fields

Oh Muse, tell me about this versatile man named Marcus, whose fame surpassed the narrow boundaries of his country! Sing to me, Muse, about the craftsmanship with which he embellishes his melancholic compositions, about his talented songwriting and his multi-instrumental abilities.

Chant about the folky atmosphere of his songs, Muse, and also mention his beautiful lyrics, that examine the thin red line between our inner world and the macrocosmos. Tell those who have a doomed soul about the exquisite way he combines low, gothic vocals with harsh screams, a combination which expresses perfectly the contrast of the beautiful, tranquil nature that is able to transform herself into a fury within some seconds, making you, an insignificant human being, realise that there is no shelter for her rage.

Don't forget to mention to them the beautiful flute and etherial keyboards which emphasize the suffocating melancholy of this work. And Muse: taking all this and the excellent artwork into consideration, tell the doomed ones that they should own this album...
