Beyond the world of light, there
exists a hidden realm where creatures of the night revel
in the beauty of darkness. Nox Arcana
invites you to enter the esoteric order of the Legion
of Shadows to explore the mysteries
of the night as you immerse yourself in a gothic soundscape of haunting
melodies, eerie sound effects and pulse-pounding, symphonic orchestrations.
Nox Arcana founder Joseph Vargo explains, "To
celebrate the Nox Arcana's 10 year anniversary, I wanted to create an album
that was entirely dedicated to Nox Arcana fans—our
very own Legion of Shadows.
The album contains a variety of dark anthems
with a theme that centers around the mysteries of the night and it's various
haunted denizens, with an underlying story about lost love, melancholy memories
of ghosts from the past, and forlorn souls who are empowered by embracing
the darkness within."
In addition to Nox Arcana's darkly romantic and
haunting original pieces, the album also features Vargo's gothic version
of Bach's classic "Toccata and Fugue".
