About the story behind “Hlara Aralh”, Ataraxia commented: 

The white fire of heavens has brought us to fusion with Hlara Aralh, bearer of the courage of the heart. The unfolding of the notes infuses us with a comprehensive and pervading sense of freedom and lightness. The tongues of crystal flame that purify without burning envelop us and lead us to the purest, most instinctive and vivifying feeling. A question resounds “Do you still dream your dream?” “Do you still feel the source?” Grace and Beauty welcome us in a triumph of flowery meadows, perfumes, colours, sensual whispers and enchanting arias.

“The video was shot on our Apennines in Italy where the genius loci that inspired the new album lives. Fire, Air, Water and Earth lead us hand in hand till we receive an initiation into the Quintessence. The new ATARAXIA album is a poetic race through the essence of the elements constantly inspired by the elemental spirits of nature.


“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. 

“Pomegranate – The Chant Of The Elementals” will be released in five formats: luxurious boxset, gold vinyl, A5 Digipack CD, Jewel Case CD and digital. It is now available for pre-order via The Circle Music
