Vitruvian Experience Day 1

Welcome to the Vitruvian Experience! Each day we will be delivering you a new song, the meaning behind the song, lyrics and bonus content. Let's get started

Vitruvian

Our new album "Vitruvian" is based on the idea behind Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man drawing.  The sketch is traditionally translated as "the proportions of the human body according to Vitruvius", a master of architecture in ancient Rome.  We have conceptualized this subject by interpreting said proportions as different emotions, sentiments, passions, and experiences.  Based on our own translation as "proportions of man", this record will broadcast themes expressing a wide range of characteristics and situations within the human condition.  We touch on topics such as perseverance, deceit, depression and anxiety, hope, grief, wonder, and self-sovereignty

"We wanted this album to be the next evolution of the Veio sound."

Miseria - anxiety and depression

Miseria is a translation of distress, squalor, and misery.  In this modern world we are all too familiar with the internal storms that anxiety and depression can wreak upon ourselves and others.  The grindy, storm-like flow of the music in this song encompasses much of the emotion that can go along with such feelings.  The lyrical content offers glimpses into the stories that these conditions can speak inside one's own head while also offering hope and a helping hand out of such misery.

Writing Vitruvian Part 1

Each day we'll also feature a song that has already been released!

Flare of Defiance - rebellion and disobedience 

This song encompasses the desire of rebellion and uprising in the human heart in a variety of conditions.  As people, we are prone to defying acts and conditions of authority whether placed upon ourselves or others.  In certain instances throughout our history as human beings and specifically as Americans, we have risen to the occasion of disobedience in the heat of dire moments...in essence, flaring in defiance.  


Miseria - Lyrics

In cursed breath it lies

Daunting, craven darkend sighs

Whispering stories with undefining might

Lurking up your spine

Murmurs, mutters

Screaming out your ears

Come now, nights eyes

Let not your distress weave you into fear


We will grow together


*You wander on the waves

Beyond the world you crave

A vile tide, it roars

Step into the shore

There, hands will guide you

(There, sounds will guide you/there, lights will guide you)

We will grow, we will grow


Drifting nights and phantom lights and crashing billow

What more it has in store in hoax and riddles

Cuts deep and in your fret it can't be healed

Black flags, in hand it waves a hopeless harrow

An old foe, an old foe


We can grow forever


Cuts deep and in your fret it can't be healed

Black flags, in hand it waves a hopeless harrow


There, hands will guide you

There, sounds will guide you

There, lights will guide you

To the shore


Oh, as cursed breath exhales fog

Gasp for the surface

Oh, your night eyes will feel the dawn

Grasping your purpose


We will grow


Drifting nights and phantom lights and crashing billow

What more it has in store in hoax and riddles
