about

The Eternal Dance is a concept album about cycles. It features the Hindu goddess Kali on the cover, who's role in mythology is that of both a mother goddess as well as a bringer of destruction.

The album title was inspired by the idea that our lives, our ideas, and all the things that surround us are just small motions in a larger movement: a never ending dance that is the Universe. One motion ends, but a new one follows up to continue the dance. One life ends, but a new life is born.
Each song on the album represents a phase in that cycle, both lyrically as well as musically. It starts heavy and energetic, and gradually moves into a more sluggish, dragging kind of vibe.

The fifth song "Moksha"–sanskrit for liberation and freedom–represents the release from this cycle of death and rebirth and features spoken words by the 20th century zen philosopher Alan Watts, taken from a lecture about his thoughts on death.

Track Name: Unmade
Lightless, lifeless
Shapeless, wakeless
Thoughtless, causeless

Lightless, lifeless
Inert space - encircling all
Thoughtless, causeless
Nameless and impartial

Shapeless, wakeless
An emptiness - the source of all
Thoughtless, causeless
Nameless and impartial

Drifting around in a boundless dark
Unaware and vast asleep
Asleep without a dream
A body without being

Unconsciously moving
Beyond the state of nothingness
Onwards through stillness
And born from this void

We open our eyes
And turn to face the light
We open our hearts
Ablaze with life

We open our eyes
And turn to face the light
We open our hearts
Ablaze with life
