Bloodway - lead by the Romanian graphic designer Costin Chioreanu from Twilight13media - has made available for full streaming the new album "Mapping The Moment With The Logic Of Dreams," featuring Dr. Mikannibal from Sigh as a special guest. Chioreanu comments:
"Conceptually speaking, this album represents the continuation of our debut EP. 'Sunstone Voyager And The Clandestine Horizon ends with the moment when our main character escapes the whale of illusions and falls into the infinite cosmos. He wants so bad to have the big picture of everything so he floats far, far away through space, until he reaches its limit. 'Mapping the Moment With the Logic Of Dreams' starts with this moment.
"The character has the complete picture of the entire universe just for one second and then, he gets instantly absorbed into nothingness. Finding himself in that infinite lack of presence, he meets the highest solitude and he starts introspection. The entire album is a very tough introspection and meditation on the relationship between mind, soul and the outside world. The name presents the main conclusion of the album, as it can be easily translated into 'Live in the present and focus on the unseen.'" More...
