Exerpt from "Darkness", by Lord Byron. Read by Michael Stearns. I had a dream, which was not all a dream. The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars Did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day, And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this their desolation; and all hearts Were chill'd into a selfish prayer for light: And they did live by watchfires—and the thrones, The palaces of crowned kings—the huts, The habitations of all things which dwell, Were burnt for beacons; cities were consum'd, And men were gather'd round their blazing homes To look once more into each other's face; The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave, The moon, their mistress, had expir'd before; The winds were wither'd in the stagnant air, And the clouds perish'd; Darkness had no need Of aid from them—She was the Universe.

about

With this second Galactic Underground album Venja embarks on an epic journey through space and time. It is his observation of the craziness of mankind or a world getting out of control in a dark and unknown era. But there's hope, light at the end of tunnel as this album concludes with "Novae Terrae", a new Earth!
Let this album grab you with vast, wide and orchestral sounding synth layers, powerful sweeps, dark choruses and drones, deep empowering bass and glitchy sounds!
For this album Venja invited guest musicians Michaels Stearns, Erik Wøllo and Nyoko Mizuki.
