about

This is the debut album of Agathodaimon's ex-vocalist Vlad. It features guest vocalist Byron, who also contributed to some songs on "Higher Art Of Rebellion".

We did discover a last stock of 30 new CD's recently- These should be the last untouched copies of this rare album (released in 1999).

Music wise, don't expect pure metal; this album features a wide range of styles; from ambient to rock to folk, gothic elements etc.

Note: The whole production run suffered from a mastering issue; the music actually runs ~3% too quickly, and therefore the pitch is incorrect. By buying the CD, you do get the album in MP3-format/download in the proper way as well, in perfect pitch and timing!


Info by the artist RA, written in 1999:

"RA, the project, which I carry with me for a long time, represents the sphere of living the poetry, the spell to one's abyssic soul.
Most of the texts were written by the most famous romanian romancer Mihai Eminescu, a genius comparable to thousand of worlds together, a timeless portrait of unearthly art. He was, is and will be that arrow, which carries the love and the venom of an entity embalmed together. A gathering of cold, undying stars, hand in hand with the wisdom of all…

This is one of the reasons, why I dedicate RA to this unfathomable universe of poetry. A poet gives shape to different things, he plants hope in those verses, he feeds hatred and lets love flourish in its own definitions, creating another garden of… he can see beyond, he creates and he destroys in such beautiful way…

Everyone is willing to understand what he/she is capable of, but u oughta know that RA is not another act in this scene of music, it is the poetry of one's spirit that's here wrapped in sounds and visions… Each track represents my interpretation of that unique text, it is a mountain of notes and musical expressions, which colors the poems, impersonating them… just imagine you are part of it.

Each RA album will specifically have this emblem, a cascade of emotions, a web of styles and creations; the listener must have this feeling of a cosmic ride thru different galaxies, where nothing is the way we know… except for the listener…
Love it or hate it."

Track Name: Romance's Romance
DORMANT ON SHORES OF UNDYING MYSTERY
OF BEAUTY AND GRACE IS THY DESIRED POETRY

One word_________________________so softly spoken
Our love _________________________the bleeding token
The world________________________I'd have stolen…

For you………………………………..devoted caress
For you……………………………….tragic romance
For you……………………………….tainted universe

INTO YOUR ROMANCE I'D HIKE
WOUNDED HAND GRASPING AT STARS
SOOTHING MY DISTRESS, PLENITUDE OF SCARS
AS WATER, THEE, MISTRESS…ONTO MY FIRE WOULD STRIKE

One word_________________________so softly spoken
Our love _________________________the bleeding token
The world________________________I'd have stolen…

For you………………………………..devoted caress
For you……………………………….tragic romance
For you……………………………….tainted universe


LIKE A SWAN THAT DIES OF HER OWN CHANT
LIKE THE TEARS I MUST WEEP TO MAINTAIN HER LAKE
AS LONG AS FLESH STILL WARM REMAINS
OUR LOVE WON'T EVER LOSE ITS SENSE
YET SOMETIME OUR LIT WOULD BE OBSCURED, WHEREAS
OUR PASSION SHALL BE TOLD AS ROMEO & JULIET'S
AND THIS POEM WOULD KEEP FOREVER, HENCE
ITS SHAKESPEAREAN ESSENCE…
Track Name: Tablou (Version)
Suntem un vis într-o culoare
Ca parfum din floare
Sub lumina cutezătoare
Suntem dragostea ucigătoare

Suntem un tablou nereușit
Abandonat și prăfuit
Schițând amănunțit
Un imposibil nedefinit

Ca o seacă privire
Pierzându-se-n neștire
Suntem ireparabili
Track Name: Winter's Ballad
On snow-covered, naked trees … … The ravens funerary crawl
Winter's dreadful paces increase … … The frost will twist in us all

The winds dissipate their cries … … That resemble to a woe
In their red and hungry eyes … … Engaged with Death I am now

In desillusions, conceptually … … Underneath that snowy carpet
Abattoir's blood enticing … … Lost forever is any outlet

Well, when I'd be defeated … … The ravens will solemnly bow
Maybe I always knew it … … And … likely it will snow
Track Name: Inger Diform
Worlds, many worlds... but this loneliness
Like ancient trees on the margin of life.

Their leaves turned into heads of men
Heads of men were like bodies of trees
'till Death will suck the honey
From our wasted breaths...

... the end deformed by desire, will I
Crawl into nature's embrace
To restate the portrait of life
I need to keep (up) my pace...

I see satellites bursting out of the solitude
They are like a swarm of flies, carring on...
"The meditations of cosmos"

The symphony and myth of Death and Dying
Let loose obsession within me, artistic theory...
"visionary"

Above the world's delirium, a candle will light
Throughout the night, the spirit catched on course
Towards saturation
"unknown destination"

Înger diform, nemuritor şi rece
Angel deformed, immutable and cold
Track Name: La Steaua / Noaptea Vesnicei Uitari
La steaua care-a rasarit
E-o cale-atât de lunga,
Ca mii de ani i-au trebuit
Luminii sa ne-ajunga.

Poate de mult s-a stins în drum
În departari albastre,
Iar raza ei abia acum
Luci vederii noastre.

Icoana stelei ce-a murit
Încet pe cer se suie:
Era pe când nu s-a zarit,
Azi o vedem si nu e.

Tot astfel cand al nostru dor
Pieri in noapte-adanca,
Lumina stinsului amor

In noaptea vesnicei uitari,
In care toate curg
A vietii noastre dezmierdari
Si raze din amurg,

De unde nu mai strabatu
Nimic din ce-au apus
As vrea o data in viata, tu, sa te inalti in sus.

Si daca ochii ce-am iubit
N-or fi de raze plini,
Tu ma priveste linistit
Cu stinsele lumini.

Si daca glasul adorat
N-o spune un cuvant,
Tot inteleg ca m`ai chemat
Dincolo de mormant..

2X
E fiinta-mi tremurânda
Care trece-n infinit,
Ca un fulger fara tinta,
Ca un cap fara zenit.

Si din chinuri ce ma-neaca,
Eu sorb mirul cel curat,
Cum o lebada se pleaca
Bând din lacul înghetat.

Si cu moartea cea adânca
Am schimbat al vietei gând,
Am fost vultur pe o stânca,
Sunt o cruce pe-un mormânt.

Care-i scopul vietii mele,
Întreb sufletu-mpietrit?
Ochiu-i stins, buzele mele
De dureri a-nvinetit.

In noaptea vesnicei uitari,
In care toate curg
A vietii noastre dezmierdari
Si raze din amurg,

De unde nu mai strabatu
Nimic din ce-au apus
As vrea o data in viata, tu, sa te inalti in...

Si daca ochii ce-am iubit
N`or fi de raze plini,
Tu ma priveste linistit
Cu stinsele lum...

Si daca glasul adorat
N-o spune un cuvant,
Tot inteleg ca m-ai chemat
Dïncolo de mooo....
Track Name: Pana Nu Pier
Stelele-n cer, deasupra marilor, al departarilor, pana ce pier
Dupa un semn, clatind catargele, tremura largele vase de lemn...
Niste cetati, plutind pe marile si miscatoarele pustietati
Stol de cocori apuca-ntinsele si necuprinsele drumuri de nori

Pana nu mor, pleaca-te ingere la trista-mi plangere, plina de-amor

Stol de cocori apuca-ntinsele si necuprinsele drumuri de nori
Zboara ce pot si-a lor intrecere, vesnica trecere, asta-i tot...
Floare de crang, astfel vietile si tineretile trec si se sting
Orice noroc isi intinde aripile, gonit de clipele starii pe foc...

Pana nu mor, pleaca-te ingere la trista-mi plangere, plina de-amor
