Albireon is our path through the acoustic poetry of italian songwriters, the energy and strenght of neo folk, the gloomy and eerie mood of insutrial and ambient soundscapes and the timeless heartbreaking melodies of traditional emilian music.
Albireon is a place were we let our subconscious speak about dreams and nightmares, hopes and fears, oblivion and remembrance, to shape our music and lyrics.
Albireon is our fragile shield against the deep frightful shades of the black sun and our endless hope in the light of day.
