As always I find myself with a bittersweet feeling. On one hand I felt joy in being able to honor yet another fallen sister through giving a piece of my soul. And on the other, I still feel a terrible sadness that it's always the most beautiful, gracious and worthy-of-life beings that leave us far too soon. I search the universe for justification and understanding and yet the same answer always returns - A star that burns twice as bright, burns half as long.
Aleah Starbridge was the brightest star I ever knew. There is no one else like her and never will be. So with this in mind, Hallatar and I bring you a sentiment from our hearts. An album dedicated to her through her own poetry. I thank her for allowing me to channel it and to Juha Raivio for the friendship and endurance.
Here is the video for one of the songs on 'No Stars Upon The Bridge'.
Something for the die hard fans! Here's a recorded rehearsal with Kerberos (pre-Draconian) from 1994. Jesper and Johan sharing the vocal duties. Kerberos was Jesper Stolpe, Andreas Hindenäs and Johan Ericson. They later became Draconian after Anders Jacobsson joined the band.
