This band startet out as a diploma thesis in art school. School may be over, but not yet is the band. We are just about to start, making our past diploma thesis a real product and continuing the artwork "Edicius' Dream" as it was meant.
A concept album is a music album in which the tracks correlate to each other and form a complete work. A musical and a lyrical context forms a steady concept which can also be stretched into a graphical or other additional divisions. Aim of this diploma thesis is not just the development of a conceptual album, but especially the creation of a band, working to a developed concept and seen as a complete work that does not operate just because of the music but of the ideas behind each part that is affiliated to this band. The packing material of this complete work is animadversion on social grievances, the society that surrounds us and on life itself.
The idea of the concept band is a phantasy character, called Edicius. This name in reverse gives information about the protagonist‘s fate. Seen from two different views, this could be an ordinary suicide or a symbolic suicide, comparable to the immolation of himself or his attitudes towards life to save himself or any other person from a more cruel or less bearable fate. So the paradigm Edicius is not bound to a certain person but can be personified by other individuals who transport the same idea, in terms of solutions, in following episodes of the complete work. To make clear that Edicius shows just a overdone scenario the name of the concept band includes the word „dream", which points to a simple imagination. The first episode of Edicius‘ Dream treats the topic of sexual abuse of children and youth in a critical way.
