about

Meridian is a conceptual suite divided into four acts in which instrumental episodes are interspersed.

Throughout the piece we see the evolution of feelings such as later-and acceptance-loss, anger or uncertainty, leading to an environment of alienation and abandonment. The use of skillfully interwoven to illustrate this experience musical and lyrical resources shape a sound journey that culminates with a vital learning, with the aim that the listener will do their part too.

There is a lot of each of the band members in this first project. The influences of this young band is based, on one hand, groups like Riverside or the earlier Dream Theater, taking on the other side the old and refined style of Camel or Spock's Beard, to name a few iconic examples. Drawing from these and many other sources, but providing a unique and personal sensitivity, Regna arises; whose sound demonstrates a genuine and forceful style, nostalgic dyes, but mostly different.

Track Name: Meridian, Part One: Black Crows
I'm walking through the streets while it's raining
Look down as the skies are turning grey
I feel the madness in the atmosphere
This train of thought has lost its trail

Black crows, found me
Within the debris of this mind
I tried not to fall again…
A trembling soul,
A baleful dance alone beside
The fading lights and rising tide

I feel their crimson gaze, staring at me
Black feathers shining through this mournful night
Claws of sorrow crush my heart again
When I remember back your smile

Black crows, tear me
Swallow the fragments of this dream
Bury my memories in the dust
Hope's fading fast
I'll let this madness be my guide
I've lost my sanity… at last
Track Name: Meridian, Part Two: Collapse (in Technicolor)
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Meridian, Part Three: Awake Again
A faint light bites me through the windowpane
A warming feel, awake again
The crows keep starving as I left behind
The thoughts of sorrow stuck on my mind

Some say that time helps healing old scars
I'd say it can teach you to wear them
I've burned all the bridges I had to burn
Regret is a burden so worthless

Your smile, forgotten swing on my memoir
So far away, in black and white
A photograph to keep but not to trust
The train has spread its wings, and I feel right

I'd say the trails are there, you have to ask
If you're who can't let yourself see them
A bunch of self lies can't break through the walls
Give up is an option so worthless
Track Name: Meridian, Part Four: Coda
Life's a twisted road, capricious wheel with dusks and dawns
Swaying side to side but never back, you must go on
