Divina Commedia III : Nine Spheres by Scott Lawlor & Jack Hertz

Submitted by Jack Hertz on Thu, 02/04/2016 - 09:36

In this, the final installment of the Dante Trilogy, we wanted to bring forth, in the listeners mind, a sense of timelessness and so this concept album is a sprawling 2 and a half hours of music, which, like in the previous two volumes, doesn't take the listener on a literal journey through the Nine Spheres, but acts as a guide to the imagination, setting it free in wonderment about the nature of the divine.
