Our local train station was under reconstruction and on one of the cordoned walls was a sign
for the ‘new and improved’ station, and in the selection of words stood the word ‘Parliaments’ which did not pertain to the message which was trying to be conveyed, which was taken on board as a metaphorical message to symbolize what the music would eventually personify

 

 

 

Give us a little bio about you as a band.
Once open a time, there were three kings all bearing gifts, one king possessed the skill of percussion, the second king wielded the four stringed bow upon his back as the organ laid before him…whilst the third king carried the sword, carved from the oldest tree of the ancient forest, 6 stars aligned vertically atop its neck.

The three of them harnessed the force of a long forgotten time, harmonized with a hastened breath to tell of tales of ages lost, still yet be found.
As the Coloured Smoke risen from the burning pages of The Book, the Red Sun looked on in wonder, for the Dead Moon had awoken.  Are You There to board the Craft of the Creators.

What was the writing process like?
Giant Ants is a metaphor for the problems that occur in ones life, of which are trivial. The idea
being that even the smallest of worries can manifest into something colossal, that just so
happen to be completely unnecessary. fundamentally making issues larger than they need to
be.
From having a strong love for grunge and all its wonder. As the perfect paradigm, presenting
the turbulent journey between two emotions. One of which, the colourful state of love and the conflicting darkness of angst.
