History is written by the victors. Therefore, history does not represent the true story of events, but only an interpretation. That was the basis behind this album.
Imagine a society so advanced as to make a man nearly immortal; he doesn't age and he heals very fast. He is a witness to history. He may not participate, only watch. Then his civilisation crumbles. Pockets of humans survive and try to rebuild, generally meeting with failure. He must watch and may not assist directly.
After travelling the world for thousands of years, he must decide whether it's worth continuing or whether he should just die.
This is where we meet the protagonist of our story. Inside the walls of Troy, the night before the Greeks invade.
Minstrel's Tale follows him through to the middle ages.
Another chapter of the story. This one takes place in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and tells the story of Georges Méliès, one of the first cinematographers and inventor of special effects.
