Asphodel
Hey everyone, I'm happy to announce "Saturnine!" This album continues a trend from a previous release, "Soporium," but in a refined and a more distinct direction. This music is very heavily influenced by European gothic metal from the 90s and the 00s but with a uniquely Americanized reimagining with elements of New Age, Hip Hop, Alternative rock and digitized Amerindian folk music. This is also the first release I've done with "generated" assets in the audio with what I would personally assess as decent results. "Asphodel" is a dramatic cinematic song that draws on the "Trouble in Paradise," trope. It portrays the haunting realization that something utopian that was so hard earned through struggle that once was thought to be a perfect solution to solve all problems and worries, in the end, it's not really bringing you happiness or bliss as you thought it would've, and its not known what is to be done since life feels so empty after the pursuit of something that turned out to be unsatisfactory.more
