THE YOUNGER OF FOUR BROTHERS AND INFLUENCED BY TWO OF THEM AS ONE IS A FORMER DJ AND THE OTHER PLAYS ON A BAND, THE SIBERIAN GAINED INTEREST IN MUSIC THANKS TO THEM AND TO AN USB MP3 HE WON IN A CONTEST, FILLED WITH DANCE MUSIC.
AS HE STARTED DJING AS SIDE HOBBY IN THE EARLY 2015, THE SIBERIAN RAPIDLY DECIDED THAT HE WANTED TO CREATE MUSIC. AFTER YEARS OF LEARNING THANKS TO THE INTERNET AND VIDEO TUTORIALS, HE RELEASED HIS FIRST TRACK IN 2016.
IT WAS IN 2018 WHEN, AFTER A PERIOD OF INACTIVITY, THE SIBERIAN SWITCHED TO HARD DANCE MUSIC THANKS TO THE RETURN OF HEADHUNTERZ TO THE SCENE. SINCE THEN, THE SIBERIAN’S MAIN GENRE HAS BEEN HARDSTYLE.
BUT IT GOES FURTHER: AS AN ORCHESTRAL/CINEMATIC FAN, THE SIBERIAN DECIDED TO MERGE THESE TWO VERY DIFFERENT MUSICAL STYLES, CREATING FROM THIS MERGE WHAT IT WOULD BE HIS OWN STYLE. HE DESCRIBES IT AS “THE HARSHNESS OF HARDSYTLE COMBINED WITH THE BEAUTY AND EMOTION OF ORCHESTRAL MUSIC”. HE ALSO STARTED COMPOSING COMPLETE ORCHESTRAL PIECES TO COMPLEMENT HIS OWN MUSIC.
THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THE SIBERIAN IS TO TELL A STORY WITH HIS MUSIC, HELPED BY ARTWORKS AND VIDEOS, DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY TO HELP THE LISTENERS TO UNDERSTAND IT. THIS IS HOW “A FOX’S JOURNEY” WAS BORN.
A FOX’S JOURNEY IS A CONCEPT CREATED AS A WAY TO GIVE A MEANING TO THE SIBERIAN’S MUSIC. IT’S A UNIVERSE TOLD WITH MUSIC, VISUAL ELEMENTS AND A WRITTEN STORY.
“OUT OF MY MIND” IS THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE STORY. DIVIDED IN 10 MAIN PARTS, THIS CONCEPTUAL ALBUM OF 14 TRACKS COMBINES HARDSTYLE TRACKS LIKE “THE LAST STAND”, “AFTERLIFE” AND “DEMONS” AND FULL ORCHESTRAL TRACKS LIKE “FOREVER FEARLESS” AND “SPIRITS”. AS A RESULT, A FOX’S JOURNEY (OUT OF MY MIND) COULD BE CATALOGUED AS AN EXPERIMENTAL CINEMATIC ALBUM BUT WITHOUT LOSING THE ESSENCE OF HARDSTYLE MUSIC.
AFTER AN UNFORTUNATE EVENT, REFUR, THE PROTAGONIST, WILL HAVE TO JOIN FORCES WITH RAZ, AN OLD GOD NOW TURNED A LOST SPIRIT, TO SAVE THEIR REALITY FROM AN UNKNOWN EVIL. TO DO SO, THEY WILL TRAVEL THROUGH MYSTERIOUS REALMS AND SACRED PLACES IN THE SEARCH OF A FORGOTTEN PROPHECY THAT WILL HELP THEM FULFILL THEIR DESTINY.
THIS ALBUM IS NOT ONLY A FICTIONAL STORY, BUT ALSO AN “THANK YOU” LETTER TO ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HELPED ME WHEN I WAS STRUGGLING THESE LAST YEARS. I WOULD HAVE QUIT MUSIC IF IT WASN’T FOR THEM.
|| You’ve heard the call. Here… your story begins, following the Drums Of War ||
|| You can smell the scent of your blood in the wind. You’re alone in this forest, but that’s gonna change soon. ||
|| The clouds disappear from the sky. The sun illuminates the prairie with golden light as you prepare for your final fight. There’s no fear ||
|| Darkness surrounds you… Death awaits.
Then, a dim light appears.
“Reach for the light, without fear” says a voice ||
|| Is there something, we call the Afterlife?
Follow your guide, Raz 🦊 and begin your ascension ||
|| After leaving the Afterlife, you wake up in a new place.
“Welcome to the Lake of the Spirits” says Raz ||
|| As skies turn red, you hear an unknown voice:
“Look at who we have here…”
Raz was there, but he wasn’t replying back… ||
|| “You can’t defeat me…” said the voice.
“I know I can’t. But he… he’s the chosen one” said Raz ||
|| “Now what?” you asked.
But there was no response from Raz… ||
After defeating darkness, the sun rises again. But at what cost.
|| This story ends here, but your Journey has just started. Now… are you ready to face new challenges? ||
THE WRITTEN VERSION OF “A FOX’S JOURNEY (OUT OF MY MIND)” IS IN THE WORKS AS WELL AS A COMPLETE ORCHESTRAL SUITE OF ALL THE ALBUM.
