I continue my interstellar journey to discover the different constellations with this second part of the “Starseeds” tetralogy. Are there starseeds among human beings? Do you have any around you? Could you recognize them? Listening to this new album will not allow you to answer these questions but perhaps it will lead you to reflect on the unspeakable. Made up of modern instrumental metal music tinged with atmospheric, progressive, acoustic and sometimes symphonic elements, it is my most dazzling production to date. Will you be able to tame the telluric forces? Get ready for weightlessness, it’s going to shake!
