Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
The album was inspired by Ray Bradbury's short story Frost and Fire. Therefore I decided to design two different covers with Spartak Yordanov and have the same CD in a "Fire" and a "Frost" package. Since the quantity of the CDs is limited - 200, I am selling here the CDs as a package but you can always buy the digital album here or live.
Includes unlimited streaming of Frost/Fire
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
The idea, music, drawings and lyrics for this album were inspired by Ray Bradbury's short novel "Frost and Fire".
I wrote the songs "Free" and "Exit" in 2012 in Groningen, while studying there, however I have abandoned the idea for four years until I met, played, recorded, hung out and lived with my amazing friends and colleagues Jorge Castañeda, Darío Guibert, Nacho de Frutos with whom we recorded our first album in December 2015 in New York.
Before moving to Madrid for an year I spent the summer in Bulgaria, writing and completing the idea that started in 2012 in the Netherlands.
The band that recorded the album features Alexander Logozarov on the guitar with whom we have been playing and sharing all kinds of adventures throughout the years - he was the first person to play to original versions of "Free" and "Exit" so it was in a way a proper end of a long cycle.
I believe it is appropriate to mention the names of all musicians and friends who helped me complete this second album of my quartet by taking part in it - consciously or not: Alex Logozarov, Jorge Castañeda, Darío Guibert, Nacho de Frutos, Setareh Nafisi, Daniel Juarez, Pranas Kentra, Tyler Luppi, Mark Haanstra, Michael Moore, Steve Altenberg, June Koo, Rafael Pereira Lima, Patrice Blanchard, Benson Itoe, Marta Warelis, Adra Karim, Dimitar Karamfilov, Dimitar Liolev, Viktorija Pilatovic and Evden Dimitrov.

A thousand days
A hundred lives
A promise of Heaven
The first night of my life
In shadows of ice and fiery darkness
A promise ofHeaven
A hundred lives
A thousand days
Track Name: Dawn
Rush through the raging grace
Rampantly growing trees, flowers and crops
Destined to sieze their existence
Craving the treacherous light touching them
Violent end of fragile creations
An hour of love, hate, slefishness, knowledge and pity
An hour of heavenly revelations
Doomed is all hope is my doom.
Track Name: Lyte
When I looked in your eyes, I saw the dream of what I could be.
When I looked in your eyes I saw happiness and love as I know them.
When I looked in your eyes I saw the most beautiful of souls.
When I looked in your eyes, my eyes filled with tears of joy.
When I looked in your eyes, my eyes filled with tears of pain.
When I looked in your eyes a sigh rolled unconscious from my chest.
When I looked in your eyes the time stopped for a second.
When I looked in your eyes five years passed by
My eyes I saw
When I looked in your eyes.
When I looked in your eyes I saw myself.
When I looked in your eyes I was happy.
When I looked in your eyes I was tired.
When I looked in your eyes I woke up.
And couldn't sleep.
With eyes opened.
About how beautiful it would be
If I could now look in your eyes.
And see all the dreams l was.
In your eyes.
All the happiness and love
In your eyes
All the beauty,
All the pain,
All the joy,
All the madness that love is.
In your eyes.
Track Name: The Science
In caves we live, in caves we die,
A life in the gutter, neglected by all.
A mere hope to take a glimpse at the stars.
A dream, an illusion. Refusing to live
in conformity as all others. The knowledge
That there is more to this merciless world
Is what keeps us awake each day and each night.
Yet soon we'll die out and all will be gone -
loved ones or deadliest enemies.
It is time to move on.
Track Name: War
It is time for a war.
It is time to race with the dawn towards our deaths.
Betrayed by our own
Saved by those who we went to kill
We are one step closer
To our dream of freedom and change.
Track Name: Exit
Dark is the night and cold.
Ruthless is the storm.
We flee to salvation my dear,
together, embracing the rain
We run through an ice hell to heaven.
Track Name: Free
A thousand days.
A hundred lives.
A Nightmare reality.
A promise of heaven.
The first day of my life
Has just begun.
