    About "Sun Dethroned":

    "Sun Dethroned is a conceptual work that deals with a two-sided personification of the human condition, in the form of two romantically involved main characters that simbolize the abstract concepts of “good” and “evil”: Lenore and God of Nothingness, the latter represented in the album cover.

    Throughout this piece a story is told of which the most important events are the death of Lenore (“good”), that lead God of Nothingness (“evil”) towards a spiralling descent into wrath and madness, eventually consuming all reality, including himself, finally abandoning his pitiful existence in a sea of regrets where, in essence, he mourns his lost love and mourns the innocence of his madness.

    In short, Sun Dethroned functions as a parabola that highlights the need for balance while firmly stating the cost of its absence."

Her descent into oblivion
Gracefully walking down those steps
Into the groves of the unknown
That flourish on the darkest depths

Left burning scars in innocence

Goddess Lenore, my cruel will of fate
Heed these silent cries
For the reaper is at the gates

This day, you have ceased to know pain
And left behind all hopes and fears
Beyond all sorrow, knowing peace
Deafened to my selfish tears

Cast me down beyond all light
Where shadows bow in reverence

Cast upon the veil of darkness
A restless heart falls ever silent
Undisturbed by pleas of mercy
Ending a parasitic torment

What pain can vanquish shades of death?
The still-water chalice of fate?
When misery turns to despair
Our very nature we mutilate

In denial
For our crimes
A life denied

Lenore, my cruel will of fate
Alone, your servant cries
As the reaper closes the gates
