Probably the most epic-themed song on the album. I was on my piano when this vocal line just popped up in my head and my imagination started running wild as I kept repeating the verse’s main melody. The sensation it gave me was something very close to Lord of the Rings, so I kept it. This is also the only song I wrote based on the vocal line. I kept thinking about it for ages, singing it for weeks, thinking about how to pair it with the music. I ended up splitting the pool of ideas I had for The Human Paradox (title track) in two, as there were enough ideas for 3 songs in there…and The Road to Acheron was born 🙂
