The Return of the Greek Power-Prog Masters FORTRESS UNDER SIEGE ! ‘Atlantis‘ includes 50 minutes of Power-Prog Metal, 12 tracks, 10 full songs and 2 small instrumentals.
The lyrical themes vary from ancient Hellenic mythology like the mythical ancient king Theseus in “Seventh Son“, or the legendary duel of Trojan prince Hector with mighty Achilles in “Hector’s Last Fight“, to Spartacus as the everlasting symbol of struggle for freedom against tyranny and oppression in his self-titled song and comic hero Conan, as seen in the 1982 movie masterpiece of John Milius in “Vengeance“, or a quick reference to fierce Viking warriors in “Lords of Death“. Furthermore, there are other songs with a social-sensitive view describing problems like the one of overprotecting mothers in “Love Enforcer“, or school bullying in “Time for Rage” and the problems of human communication in “Silence of Our Words“. Last but not least, there is the self-titled “Atlantis” which is an allegory for all those things that you yearn and desire and you seek your entire life but you never reach, like a femme fatale, always in vain and a beautiful ballad called “The Road Unknown” which refers to unfulfilled dreams.
