Once again, welcome to the City of Abyss, the megacity surrounded by a massive forest, the Shadow Hills! Some even say they're haunted... Twenty years after the events of "An Abyss at Nightfall" the city is facing a devastating dictatorship. Freedom of speech, individuality, literature and every art forms are being hunted by the regime. The filthy rich and supporters of this madness live in the new part of town, called Emporium, while everyone else is kept at a distance forced to feed the economic machine everyday or wander the streets. This is the story of a homeless man named Adam, the narrator, and the woman who changed his life forever, Izabel. Izabel was a young writer who opposed the regime with her books. Her mother, a famous performer known only as "The Chaos Swan", was murdered by the same reason Izabel had her face burned... Believing in Freedom! Her books were burned, her work exiled and her name erased, she became a ghost. Dying with cancer, Izabel and her revolutionary movement will fight the regime until the end. Although each song was written to explore a different theme, each of them tells a piece of Adam's and Izabel's story. The first time Adam meets Izabel and decides to join her (Metastasis), his thoughts in the lonely nights living in the streets (The Seer), his decision to take Izabel's place after her death (Darker Days, Brighter Nights) and his first step, as a leader, against the regime (Tempest / Dawn). How they connect is up to you. Use your imagination! Your mind is your greatest weapon. We hope you enjoy this new chapter in our story as much as we do!
