ERYN NON DAE Posts “Hidden Lotus” VideoThursday, 19th September 2013
French progressive metallers ERYN NON DAE have released the video for “Hidden Lotus,” a song from their 2012 album Meloria. The follow-up to 2009’s Hydra Lernaia was recorded at Mobo’s ConKrete Studio in Bordeaux, France.
According to a press release, Meliora “is both cerebral and organic, complete with dynamic relief, softer abstract and atmospheric passages of contained energy appear and transport the listener. From this highly textured mosaic the concept comes to life: this time coming from a long introspective process. Meliora speaks of the metamorphosis of a man into a higher being. This transformation is born from a realization of inner truth. On this inexorable journey towards the end, a light may be found.
“The lyrics of Meliora swing between appeasement and resignation, with references to mythology and alchemy. Filled with actual experiences, the album expresses a physical and psychic quest. The lyrics are raw and fragile, vindictive and sensitive, bleak yet filled with goodwill and hope. Meliora is, finally, a fragment of pure humanity.”
Meliora track listing:
2. The Great Downfall
3. Scarlet Rising
6. Black Obsidian Pyre
7. Hidden Lotus
