    "The Grieving Path" is a dark casket that reveals the deepest and most intimate emotions and sensations, where a pain-torn mind describes life as a slow journey, step by step, through a feeling of overwhelming discomfort and acceptance coming from awareness, of the form of life itself. A funeral song for darker times. Mourning, visions of the afterlife and deep introspection are some of the topics covered through the 5 tracks that make up The Grieving Path, an album with a total duration of 45 minutes. These times immediately lead the listener to refer to the five stages of grief processing:
    Denial;
    Anger;
    Plea bargain;
    Depression;
    Acceptance;
    It can be defined as a very personal album, with a strong poetic inspiration, in which the listener can recognize lived experiences or sensations that, perhaps out of shame or fear, he never wanted to tell or even accept.

Shapeless reflections, hours of spiritualization, and towers for demons of existence. Weightless depictions of thousands further skies Caliginous, encumbered by the clouds to come Into silence I raise my eyes I stare the at the abyss, I gaze at the sky I fill the horizon with hope and light But grows in darkness and turns to night Far from the sunlight oblivion keeps on calling Growing, growling, craving for me Here I yearn for the last gold rays of light, the delight of rotting life For the redemption on this sinking vessel I realize that it's useless to be alive, that it's good to fall and die Hear, I grieve, scream for the storms to come

Tombless 08:16
I was shattered, bleak and glum Screaming was the silence of the wounds Dragged myself into the black of night Pierced by silence in electric light Cast the word of water in my bones By the starless mirror of the storm Cast my bones into the world of water Flowing quietly on the veil of my eyes Was It like lying upon this stream Facing darkness, craving sleep? Unaware of what was going to be For this mind can just see what has been Unaware of what these waters mean Drifting silently on colder swirls Is this ocean the betrayal of God Or the tombstone of the essence of One? Looking for land where land is just a lie Leading loveless along lonely lines I was what I needed to be to be what I became that night: nothing. Nothing to see, nothing to blame or to fight for: a ghost of grey. The grey that swirls and echoes in the chambers of life: silence. Silence and nothing more, silence I wanted to come from the womb of my mother: silence. I've been cast on shores of shapeless dreams Laid my head down, fell asleep Waited for a morning that has never come Oh my love, what have I become?

Soars as a blackbird from inside Spiralling as smoke, permeates this mind Coiling deeper into bowels it corrupts Reaching for the Will to Live suffocates it all Follow me even if you don't want to Despite my reflection on Heaven Redefine the shape of sorrow and yourself Just to live another day on Earth. The scent of hemlock, seducent tone Empty the goblet, empty the throne Feeding on your fears it germinates Unceasing, overwhelming, adumbrates. Follow me even if you don't want to Despite my reflection on Heaven Redefine the shape of sorrow and yourself Just to live another day on Earth. Did you ever feel so silent Even though you would just scream? Titan against God or Tyrant Just another skull.

A Downfall 11:30
As emptiness devourer Of silent echoes mother Carved in me a hollow reign made of cold and open veins I crowned myself, and sat upon this throne Of shadows as long as coffin nails, Entangling all the pathways inside of me. All is darker beyond the weary steps And light is dying behind this crooked shape. Screaming midst tombstones unhallowed I crawled towards the solitary gallow Rooms and bridges, trains of thoughts and slits of razors And the weight that choked my breath was just what defined myself. Never found a sense in the suffering of being Existence is just a downfall And I'm torn asunder While I'm falling down "So sombre is the air that lingers And the shadows are growing longer As the piercing sound of a cracking ground raises an obelisk below wasted clouds. They begin to bleed. As the steps are trembling number And a roar is getting louder (The roar of the raging skies above) I cut loose the rims of my belonging I start to flow like aether And my limbs are vines with thorns. I get numb, colder and colder As I burn, burn, burn. And the essence of the star That was my one and only beating heart Thrives ablaze, falls into ashes. I got here to see the rumbling void Clashing, raging, caked in horror. I got here to see the world! Looking down I saw the darkness Of the abyss of perception. Looking down I saw myself Cold and useless, looking upwards. And the towers and the bridges Of the fortress of my mind Started crumbling into pieces As I saw what's all about. Life is nothing but a nightmare And a song that shifts to scream In a cosmos cold as ashes Of the arson that is me" Grab my neck and tear me apart Suffocate what's left of mine Fill my throat with bitter shame Bury me without a name Bury me without a head Break that vessel of despair without end Leave my cloth of flames in hell to rot alone
