about

"On Icy Shores" is about the the journey of the hopeless soul who gives up living. But escape is within our reach. We just need to realize that it all depends on us, having the strenght to give purpose and meaning to one's path.
With this album, we tried to recreate this sinusoidal path of life, through musical context and song title. We chronologically pass through a univers full of possibilities, amibiguity, nostalgy, despair only for, in the end, to relink with our old acquaintance, hope.

Track Name: On Icy Shores (feat Manuel Vicari)
Darkness, almost, conquered the light
On Icy Shores, my dreams lie sleeping
A frozen sun, but warm inside
It seems to light my recent sky
So let the cold winds grant a new sunrise

Be gone. My endless night
Be gone. My endless night

The balance of life and death, still in my hands
And images of young stars approaching
The vision is closer again
On Icy Shores I will stay. I will keep my faith.

Be gone. My endless night. My new day is going to rise
My endless night. My new day is going to rise
Be gone, my endless night, goodbye. Welcome new day of mine.

Chorus:
Fragile,
Enchanted,
Glacial tears,
Wake up,
My frozen hopes.
