Humouring gods

The debut solo album. A classical suite, played as rock.

... is a suite in 8 movements that delves into Greek mythology.​

​​In Greek mythology, you often find the typical story of Zeus falling in love with a mortal woman. Of course, when his wife Hera finds out about it, she endeavours to transform the poor human woman into some lowly creature. For example, Io was changed into a cow.​

​​Hera takes her wrath on the woman as Zeus would surely kill her if she took it out on him. Question is, how does the woman feel?​

​Imagine that this once fabulous woman has been turned into a harpy. She has her beautiful face, breasts, and body except... Where she used to have arms, she now has the wings of an eagle. Where she used to have legs, she now has the claws of an eagle. And she has the tail of this same bird.​

Any man will be attracted by her beauty, yet repulsed by her body.

1. Transformation
​Our heroin wakes up in her transformed body. A plethora of emotions goes through her. Repulsion at her own body. Extreme hate toward the gods who did this to her. Fear, loathing.​

2. Sorrow
​Any semblance of a normal life is over. Her dreams have died.

​​3. Aftermath
​After the self-pity and self-loathing, she will try to regain composure.

​4. Phantasmes
In an attempt to make life bearable, she will discover certain advantages to her new body; like soaring in the sky, free. Perhaps finding a way to attain the gods and be transformed back.

​5. Revenge
​After careful planning, she attempts to seek out some kind of revenge on Zeus and Hera. Transformed as she might be, she is still no match for immoral (immortal) creatures.

​6. Nostalgia
After her failed attempt, she looks back on her life before Zeus seduced her.

​7. Insanity
​But it is all too much for her. All her planning for revenge, all her nostalgia leads her straight into insanity.

​8. Oblivion

​There is but one way out. She will use her mighty wings one last time to soar up to the gods and drop, like a missile, to the ground.
