He's angry and wants to get his word out and expose the false god's lies. I don't usually think the music is intertwined with lyrics in a lot of metal, but it seems to be with Light Bearer, even if Alex only writes the lyrics.
Agreed. I have to remember that these albums are meant to be experienced as a cohesive work of art. This is such an impressive undertaking. I can't think of another band I love that puts this much thought and passion into creating a collection of albums. The artwork, lyrics, melodies, songs are all painstakingly created and I can't wait for the next two albums.
