For the second song from their performance I do not even have words to describe how it feels when you hear live bagpipe with its impressive sound of the folk song "The Maid and the Mountain"

In the beginning there was the music, and then the stories came. Everything started with several unfinished ideas, pieces of lyrics, which slowly became conected in a whole story and took us to the world of Aegonia...

Thus the songs and the stories of "The Forgotten Song" came to life. We would like to present them to you on May 10 at +Ñова .

Come with us, we will take you to a world of legends and tales, to seek together the Stone of winds and the Mistress of the mists...

The book "The Forgotten Song" is now finalized and edited (in Bulgarian)

Posted at 02/11/11 - 09:18

It has been a great experience to write it down, as even for me it revealed slowly and gradually, often it kept me in tense and ignorance.

 

I hope to see it soon published in Bulgarian as an e-book and on paper and translated in English.

 

Special thanks to Nelly Koleva, editor of the book.

Aegonia in a home-studio

Posted at 16/09/11 - 07:13

We started to record at home. It turned out to be very hard to record accoustic drums, so as a start we decided to make them electronically by using a software. Since this is done by people, who are not drummers, they sound... as they do.

With the other instruments things are going more smoothly.

We are working on several songs in parallel, no it seems Gone will be the first to be fully completed.

Things are pregressing very slowly :)

Author: Aegonia

There will be a book too!

Posted at 14/06/11 - 07:36

We now know how the story of the forgotten song ends. In parallel to the music we started writing it down as a book. The caption will be the same as album - "The Forgotten Song"

Author: Aegonia

The beginning

Posted at 27/04/11 - 19:46

In the beginnig we played just for pleasure, mainly instrumentals, as none of us felt comfortable to sing and improvise using vocals, nor had we things to say using words.

Besides the usual short ideas, the first whole song we put together was Gothic (later renamed to Restless Mind). In the beginning it was only music, without lyrics, without a vocal melody.

A few months later, while playing at home with our accoustic instruments, Rain of Tears came to life, and soon after that With The Mists She Came.

And then we understood the lyrics of the songs were conencted. We found out that through the music and the lyrics, a whole story was coming to life... The legend of Endoriel, the mistress of the mists, and her forgotten song.

We are starting the recordings!
