Absolute Zero Man, I've been hoping for a long time that another Dol Theeta album would appear. These projects have ideas I've not heard elsewhere, and they strike me emotionally where few bands do. I was also led to Klaus Schulze (RIP) and Jean Michele Jarre through these sonic "castles", from whom Mr. Lightbridge takes some inspiration. Eternal thanks to Thanasis & crew over the years. May they continue & prosper. Launch into the eternity of stars...

Umbilical 07:46
Open my eyes And try to breathe What is this world I’m so afraid Something is wrong I suffocate My inner self Is choking me I turn my face I look at you You are in pain Yet smile to me As I grow up This never ends I learn to cope I learn to hide Although I laugh And live my life It’s always there Umbilical Into this world I suffocate Yet I am forced to integrate I’d rather live inside a dream I find my peace in fantasy As I look back Into my life I wish I could Have let it go Although I laugh And live my life It’s always there Umbilical

The dark was tasteless Until I met you Your eyes a vortex I fall into the trap Good night friendly wasp Spray your love Help me lose my mind Satisfy Hunter in the night Mindless fire Sharp blade through the heart Paralyze Silence my love Don’t cry my love Don’t cry my love Silence my love

Enchanted 06:54
A boy dives in the ocean Unearths a mechanism With sounds and lights fantastic He dreams of astronauts Echoes cosmic Immortal love Echoes calling Utopia Now older in his lighthouse The boy still dreams of stars Is art what makes us human Is art the source of love Echoes cosmic Immortal love Echoes calling Utopia Dream on Fly to the stars Dream on Out of this world Fly music Unite mankind Magic art Will forever last Echoes cosmic Immortal love Echoes calling Utopia

Monolith 08:31
Through the stars One night they saw it Missions fail But one will reach it There it stands Alone and massive Straight black lines Reflect the cosmos First they thought It might be danger Then despair It must be nothing Humans fail To find a meaning Not equipped To grasp the answer Life, space, time, technology What does it mean? The monolith Cosmic mystery Cosmic enigma From the sun Origin Through black hole Destiny Life, space, time, technology What does it mean? The monolith

Remember 06:06
Open eyes long into my sleep I fantasize All the dreams I had as a kid I idolize Did I lose my focus in life? Or am I wrong? All those epic things I would make Where are they now? We laugh We cry Together This life Is yours Remember As we meet and talk about this You remind me All the things we made through the years You inspire me All the work and tears that we shared All the joys we had Life is the journey don’t you forget There's no promised land We laugh We cry Together This life Is yours Remember And some may say we failed it But we will know we made it

Quicksand It’s all I think One hundred ways Outside I wait in vain To signify Quicksand The more I sink The more I fight Outside I waste my time And self-destruct Close your eyes and breathe in Calm down try to find the Hidden portal in your heart Open eyes and breathe out Stand up you've unlocked the Hidden forces of the mind Inside There’s all I need I was so blind Quicksand The more I think The more I find Inside Embrace the pain And learn to love Quicksand The darkness fades I can decide Inside There’s all I need

We Die Alone 06:01
Is there anyone When we are dead and gone Heaven awaits Your soul Pray, sing and love Bow down Will you hold my hand When we reach the gate Don’t ask have faith Doubt not Come don’t be late Bow down I am the one Saviour Glorious fate Amen The time has come Poor soul Follow the light Amen I close my eyes Oh will I enter eternity? As the candlelights fade away I think I see it I’m ready I’m ready No light awaits you There’s only black We enter nothing We die alone There is no heaven There is no hell No singing angels All is a lie No light awaits you There’s only black We enter nothing We die alone

Monad 07:12
Lived my life in fear Another day I was too scared to dance Another kiss lost in those wasted years I know the truth is just a heartbeat away But all this poison still echoes Close my eyes and breathe And as I try to get rid of my past To be the polestar for me and loved ones I start to feel like my life's just begun Still in my head doubt keeps lingering No! Now I am free Born again Breathe new air And scream I'm the monad Endless power God and monster Burn inside Light and shadow Fight for balance All the cosmos Yin and Yang I'm the monad Endless power Evolution Of the mind Light and shadow Fight for balance Absolution I am free

about

“Monad” is the second full Dol Theeta album and is a result of Thanasis Lightbridge’s extreme introspection. The general concept of the album revolves around the potential power of the unit. The power of one. Monad celebrates the achievements of a focused singular being but also contemplates the dire effects of solitude and closing yourself off.

The soul-searching of a self-imposed isolation brings forth the eternal struggle of light and darkness and tests the balance of the concepts of life and death inside oneself.

Monad took four years to complete and features the gifted and exceptionally diverse vocals of Kortessa and dexterous guitar and bass performances by Demian.
