New concept album: The Dance of Light and Shade “…in the eternal dance of shade and light, live beyond me…”
“Please daddy, don’t go…” A desperate cry in the night. Jake strongly holds an old radio on his chest: it’s battered and it usually croaks incomprehensible crunches, but sometimes, that noise caresses Jake’s ears with his father voice, Mr. Doubt.
Crossed by shadows, man is an insensitive puppet. The Shade controls people’s mind in a worldwide reality show.
Mr. Doubt and Faith, his wife, dream about a new flow to escape from this dystopian existence, but their wishes wreck with their lives.
Now they live as Aeons, spirits that could guide our steps in the night, hearing our whispers, caressing our skin when we sleep, someone could call them angels.
The Doubt and the Faith, the Light and the Shade: two sides of the same whirling, crazy coin.
“…in the eternal dance of shade and light, don’t lose hope…” A few words from that old radio. Jake knows. He must fight rampant apathy. Humanity has forgotten humanity. The Shade is covering the Light. Jake’s messianic path leads to revelation, to the truth.
