Equilibrium was happy to welcome us among its artists and we accepted at once because we like the bands of this label like Dwelling, The Moon and the Night Spirit and Poets to their Beloved. They are more near to our tastes, playing classical or folk music.
In short, Horologium is a musical project that emerged around July 2004 when I started the recording session of ‘The Fire Sermon’ album. I guess the “obsession” with time has begun much earlier. The passing of time is what actually determines our life’s goals, passions, fears and, above all, artistic activity.
It’s about how absurd the western society is. I’m just a messenger, so I don’t judge, I just see and feel what’s going on out there. So I don’t have any real message, it’s just important to me that people realize that they have their own choices in life, that’s just all.

The legend of this beverage is huge, and I've just added something from my heart about it. I wanted "Onoskelis" to have a decadent feel of the fin de siecle times, and it just had to have Absinthe there. The album cover and some titles have significant resemblance to the Art Nouveau and decadence, because I find those times very intriguing.
