Quantum Arkanum now digitally distributed

…and now also Quantum Arkanum is available on #Spotify, #Deezer and all the other digital distribution media 😄. This is my Yin side, dark and symbolic, dealing with Greek and Egyptian cosmogony and ancient myths such as the cult of Amun-Ra. The beginning of a long and comprehensive project. Check it out!

Vocals for Quantum Arkanum recorded

Some update about my upcoming Quantum Arkanum EP: the vocals for track #2 are now recorded. The song is heavy on symbolism and gnostic traditions, consistently with the EP’s title.

If Event Horizon https://g.co/kgs/4AB8BA is my Yang, progressive and rather bright sounding, Quantum Arkanum is my Yin, featuring dark atmospheres based on doom metal arrangements. Still quite progressive anyway, but with a different flavour.

Tracks #1 and #3 are going to be instrumental, while #2 features vocal parts and lyrics on Egyptian cosmogony and occultism. A mix of English and Ancient Greek.

Forecast for the release date: end of June/mid July. Stay tuned!

“Event Horizon” EP now published

My new 4-song EP Event Horizon is now released on #Spotify, #iTunes, #Apple Music, #Deezer and all the other major music distribution media.

  1. “Funky Matters” is the opening tune. A concept song about particle #Physics, #supersymmetry, string theory. Influenced by rock, metal, funk and jazz. #progressive#rock. @KlasGranqvist on drums!
  2. “The Tyger”‘ s lyrics are adapted from the homonymous poem by #williamblake, in a horror story of might, divinity and grandeur. Whispered in the darkness. #Literature #progressive #art #rock
  3. “Sabbatical Leave” is the story of an evil researcher who hates the world and takes a Sabbatical leave to build a weapon of mass destruction. Dark humour & some critique of the #academic #Zeitgeist. #progressive #rock #Metal
  4. “The Stalker” is a collaboration with the #Finnish band Spy. Here I sing a tale of a…stalker, while they shine with their instrumental accompaniment in 5/8. #progressive #rock

Demogorgon, a new song.

“Ήτοι μεν πρώτιστα χάος γένετο.” (“Verily at the first Chaos came to be.”)
Hesiod (ca.750 BC), Theogonia, 116.

The opening tune of my dark progressive album “Quantum Arkanum”, featuring stoner, sludge and psychedelic elements, with some classical flavour.

New lyrics video – Sabbatical Leave

I have published a lyrics video for the radio edit version of my song Sabbatical Leave. You can watch it below or on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1mfO0uZ7co

The full version of the track is on my Soundcloud profile at https://soundcloud.com/quantumprana/sabbatical-leave

“Sabbatical Leave” – a new track

“Sabbatical Leave” is the first tale of “The Adventures of Prof. Gideon Longbottom”. The evil researcher hates the world, and particularly his students with their smartphones always at hand. He therefore takes a Sabbatical leave to close himself into a laboratory in the cellar, for designing a weapon of mass destruction…with some (dark) humour.

————————————-
SABBATICAL LEAVE

Walking down the hall, the comedy plays
Students mocking me, “The hatchback will pay”
The rector won’t pay me regards
The faculty has only retards
Walking stick is carrying
My twisted proportions

My forehead is spacious
To accommodate grandeur
Massive head, naughty grin
My asymmetric chin
Showing the wasteland of my hatred for you

BURN! THEM ALL!
Petty dreams end in screams
Fire, your sins
BURN! THEM ALL!
The final resolution
Apocalypse of melted skin

Students check their smartphone
For quantum optics attention is gone
Spoiling little brats, technology
Life upon a display, making them restless

Your ignorance, your blessing
The final resolution

I’m taking my leave
Working in silence
In the cellar
Holding your smartphone
My grin on their display

BURN! THEM ALL!
Makeup and soaring screams
Flaming phones melt your skin
BURN! THEM ALL!
The final resolution
I’m gonna be a superstar!

(My) walking stick in flames
But I won’t care at all
Dancing on your graves
My twisted figure at the shopping mall

Delirium of the senses
The women will be mine
I shall just collect the pieces
Legs oh, will be carbonised
But after all, it will be fair!

Stepping down the stairs, cursing them all
You wonder why my laughing erupts
“That evil man has gone nuts!”

The dawn of my revenge
Sabbatical call

BURN! THEM ALL!
BURN! THEM ALL!
Revenge is nigh!

A new track, You (edit 2019) on my Soundcloud

So here is my final arrangement (at least until I find a producer) of You, an Odalisque song everybody loved.

I wish to thank my collaborators Elisa Mucciarelli and Second Order Effects for their excellent work. Special thanks go to Tatu Hiltunen and Jussi Lindström for their earlier contribution.
