With such huge musical versatility within one and the same album, it’s difficult to pick one song that feels representative of the entirety. Nonetheless, we believe that “Drowned” – with its forays through both classic progressive rock and heavy riffing – at least fully encompasses the sense of drama and theatrical flair that drew us to this band in the first place.
“Drowned” is the most rock-oriented track on “AEON”, and one of the first songs we wrote. Lyrically, it’s based on a Jack London novel called Build a Fire, which tells the story of a man dying in the frost. “Drowned” serves as our musical musings about death and human fragility in the face of nature’s almightiness. By using up-tempo drum patterns, we sought to reinforce the dynamic rhythm of the storytelling, while the ‘classic’ approach to song-structure brings us back to the immutability of the natural cycle of life and death.
