dark atmospheric lyrics with wave, rock,
classical orchestration, piano and heavy
consists of 12 songs offering a wide variety
of music styles from pure dark rock songs,
danceable industrial beats and folk elements
to atmospheric slow songs filled with classical
orchestrations. The two different female
voices in combination with rough and clean
male voices are utilized extensively. The

the piano playing along. The lyrics offer
a dark atmospheric approach and are based
on deep personal emotions. The topics are
about life and death, desires, fears, loosing
a loved one and all eternity, The Eternitas.
story of the new album Eternitas and also
that of SATYRIAN goes back to December 2002.
This is when the band started the album
recordings at the Spacelab Studio in Germany.
Although back then operating as Danse Macabre,
this can be considered as the beginning
recordings started with the drummer Merijn
Mol (Danse Macabre, The Dreamside), the
bassist Milos Marisevic (Danse Macabre)
and the composer / guitarist Jan “Örkki”
Yrlund (Danse Macabre, ex- Lacrimosa, Prestige,
Imperia, Angel, Delain). The piano and some
clean vocals were performed by the producer
Oliver Philipps (also in Everon). The band
invited Kemi Vita (The Dreamside) as a guest
vocalist. Also Judith “Ciara”
Stüber took part on the recordings.
She was already singing three songs on the
band’s previous album called “Eva”.
The band had an upcoming summer-tour ahead
of them in Finland in 2003 so the guys of
the band asked the guests to join them.
The female vocalists Kemi and Judith gladly
agreed and also the producer Oliver was
willing to join the band for this journey.
And finally they also found a singer to
complete the line-up: Roman Schönsee
(ex- Pyogenesis, The Bloodline, The Dreamside).
The band started rehearsing at the Spacelab
Studio and soon after they flew over to
Finland and played the gigs. On this occasion
they also shot scenes for an upcoming video-clip
up North in Lapland with the director Jari
Koskela. Afterwards the band enjoyed a short
but well earned holiday together.
the tour it was obvious that the line-up
worked very well and everybody wanted to
join the band as full members. The new album
still needed to be completed with vocals,
so preparations were made and the songs
rehearsed. In April 2004 the band went back
to the Spacelab Studio. Now all three vocalists
were experimenting a lot and the recordings
were truly a creative process. While being
busy with vocals, the band got carried away
and recorded new piano, bass and orchestral
parts. And they added an extra song on the
album. In June 2004 the album-recordings
were finally completed. On the same go the
band started using their new moniker: SATYRIAN.
the autumn of 2005 their old record company
agreed on the band’s request to transfer
this album and to sign a new record deal
with the Lion Music.
