“Keep Deep” is coming this Saturday

Only 5 days left for the release of “Keep Deep” and we are working full time here at the Lightbridge-Batman headquarters!

Me and my sound partner Argy Stream are at the final mastering stage, tweaking the frequencies and balancing the dynamics of the 3 tracks.

I am also in the process of color-correcting the music video for “Keep Deep” which will also appear together with the release of the EP this Saturday. “Keep Deep” is an epic 9-minute track and the video is shaping like a mini/short movie.

Here are some stills from the video:

Stay tuned for the unveiling of our work and also a special surprise product that will appear this Saturday the 15th of June. Space on!

New Dol Theeta logo

Following the general re-design of my website and projects, I present you with the new Dol Theeta logo.

I wanted something dreamier and more fairytale-like for Dol Theeta but retaining a certain edginess at the same time. The upcoming Dol Theeta EP will be the first to sport this new look.

Do you like it? Let me know what you think, cheers.

Sea Of Tranquility – “The Universe Expands” Review

Sea Of Tranquility – “The Universe Expands” Review

Having release two albums under the guise of Dol Ammad (2004’s Star Tales and Ocean Dynamics two years later), Greek Electronica-Art-Metal composer Thanasis Lightbridge turned his attention to another project that furthered the same musical ethos of blending classical voices with surging metal riffs and electronic themes. Where Theeta differs from Ammad is that instead of the vocals in the band being a choir of fourteen, this time the sole voice of soprano singer Kortessa leads the way. The difference may in the grand scheme of things be quite subtle, but the end results are quite starkly different, with the single focus point suddenly freeing up the music to be less oppressive and claustrophobic than that which Lightbridge had produced before.

That’s not to say The Universe Expands is an easy journey, with the differing styles all still making for unusual, if well crafted bed fellows. Also slightly taking a back seat on this release are the more overtly dance influenced beats and while they are still in evidence, this time the electronica comes more in the shape of synth and keyboard embellishments, rather than driving rhythms. What is surprising though is that considering that the Dol Ammad albums featured nearly twenty contributors, The Universe Expands sounds no less grand in scale, or broad in execution for only having three.

This time Lightbridge ably handles drums, synths and a spot of vocals, while Dim, who is also in Dol Ammad, once again puts in a sterling job on guitar, leaving Kortessa to round out this trio. What this also allows is for the instrumentation to have a harder punch and especially Dim’s guitar work, which on previous Lightbridge compositions could be rather swamped, to hit home with stinging intent.

Similar to Dol Ammad, this 2008 album from Dol Theeta leaves a slightly more immediate impression and is definitely the most readily accessible starting point for Lightbridge’s electronica meets Therion style work.
