About the story behind “Nevenhir”, Ataraxia commented:
“This song shifts between spirit and matter enveloped by the liquid currents of Nevenhir, elemental Spirit of water. In the music video, this subtle Spirit is embodied by two twins, Neve and Nhir. They appear and disappear embroidering dreams. The new ATARAXIA album is a poetic race through the essence of the elements constantly inspired by the elemental Spirits of nature.”
“Neve, do you remember the dive into the salvific cold recovering purity and intact nature? “
“Nhir, I remember the silver plates of the lakes,
the absolute purity of the springs,
the indomitable wave horses,
the singing swarms of the streams,
the humoral uterine abysses,
the shape-shifting wave mandalas,
born, born again, renewed in the liquid element”
“Neve, I remember the powerful vision”
“Pomegranate – The Chant Of The Elementals” takes the listener on a unique musical journey, in a mystical walk through space-time between the past, the present and the future.
