More information: The opening of Epistrophobia, is the direct follow on from Thomas Thielenís impressive 2015 album 'Fragmentropy' and a sixth album which takes its rightful place in the context of a significant and carefully evolving project to grapple with the transitory fragility of relationships, the fleeting episodes which come together to make up our lives and the struggle to find meaning in what happens to us and in everything around us.
"Thielenís music has always demanded your time and attention when listening to it in return for the rewards it eventually yields and this new release is no exception. It is a hugely impressive and deliciously complex weaving of lyrical poetry and philosophy with musical inspiration and hard fought creativity to form a sombre yet highly melodic set of heartfelt explorations which are intellectually intense and emotionally provocative in equal measure." (Review - Progressive Aspect)
