"Taking himself seriously, so you don't have to."

“Battlefield: Purgatory” Full Trilogy (Updated March 7th)

Godspeed to your paradise!

A trifecta of shadowy delights, swimming through uncharted spiritual and psychic waters, battling demons and striving for the divine: an alchemical mix of light and darkness, from piano, to harpsichord, to organ…

 

We begin our journey in a city from long, long ago, and far, far ahead…

 

 

The road turns into a valley of perpetual shadow, with stinging barbs and blinding mist, where all hope is lost…

 

 

Climbing out of the valley, you come upon an ancient cathedral, cut into a windswept mountain pass; the bellow of an organ issues from within, looking out over an abyssal plain, where angels and demons fight for the souls of countless millions…

 

 

The title is inspired by Dante’s “Purgatorio”, of which I am currently reading with astonishment.

1st track: A reprisal of “Cities Past Form Futures” style, on piano.

2nd track: A composition of “Doom & Gloom & Boom” style, on the first third, more improvisation on the second two-thirds.

3rd track: ~45 minutes, with a good mix of everything, and it does the title, “Battlefield: Purgatory”, a bit more justice. Starts with “Cities Past” style, for the first third, and “Constantine” style, for the second two-thirds.
