“You and I at least once felt an interesting thing: a happiness and grief for what you love and won’t likely face again. It’s like turning the last page of Lord of The Rings reading it for the first time. It’s like watching the sunset together with Yennefer in Corvo Bianco understanding that your quest is over. It’s like remembering folklore stories from your granddad who told you about the ancient times.
Didn’t you dream of the other stories that could live in these worlds? In some sense, Evoking Winds project talks about what could be there. It becomes home for all these feelings."
Inspired by the music of Paul Anthony Romero with composer's permission.
The true brilliance of the series is the music. It influenced the Evoking Winds band much and this album is our tribute work to the Three Heroes of fantasy music: Paul Romero, Rob King, and Steve Baca. The monumental work "Heroes of Might and Magic III OST" had been released 20 years ago, and we played the beloved themes from HoMM3 and HoMM2 once again to celebrate the music we all grew on.
Eventually, exploring fantasy worlds has led us to the main inspiration for our lyrics for further albums since 2014 and on we uncovered “The Witcher” saga by Andrzej Sapkowski. With the given world maturity and huge folklore background - we fell in love with the setting and started to carefully explore it. This is our first try at the setting: together with the listener, we moved towards the old age when the Conjunction of Spheres has occurred and there was just the beginning of the world we were told a lot later.
Besides the described setting, “Conjunction of Spheres” contains some philosophical thoughts on human beings standing in front of something bigger. The uneven choices we do, the outcomes we have, and the uncertainty about whether we need these results. This line correlates a lot with thoughts we find in “The Witcher”, and though the album doesn’t name any famous characters or names, our inspiration is clear here.
