MerlinMoon (Iconography LP) - Album Credits

MERLINMOON - ICONOGRAPHY LP

 

IN A LIMITED CANVAS OF INFINITE NOTES, 
INSPIRED BY NOSTALGIA, LOSS AND AN UNBREAKABLE WILL, 
MERLINMOON CONCLUDES ICONOGRAPHY. 
A TEN SONG, THIRTY-FIVE MINUTES LONG JOURNEY 
FROM THE SOUL TO HEAVEN AND HELL. 
THE ALBUM MIXES MERLIN’S INFLUENCE OF 
PETER GABRIEL’S INTENSE BITTERS, 
WITH THE MELLOW PSYCHEDELIA OF 
PINK FLOYD AND KING CRIMSON
BRUSH STROKES INSPIRED BY STING’S 
SENSITIVITY TOWARDS LOVE AND 
BOB MARLEY’S SUBTLE TOUCHES 
PROCLAIMING A HIGHER SPIRITUAL ATONEMENT. 
SEVENTEEN MONTHS BREWING, 
IN-BETWEEN HIGH VOLTAGE VINTAGE EQUIPMENT 
AND A MIND FULL OF UNCERTAINTY, 
INSECURITY AND AN UNPARALLELED VISION 
THROUGH THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED.
