Haggard - Eppur Si Muove (CD)
Release Date: 04/06/10
German band Haggard deliver a sonic and historical heavy metal masterpiece that tells the story of Galileo Galilei.
On Eppur Si Muove (Italian for 'and it (Planet Earth) does move'), metal act Haggard concentrate on the historic figure of Galileo Galilei, inviting their audience on a journey into the past. Following a sabbatical of three years, Haggard returned to transform their ideas into a vibrant, even more vivid epic. Their linguistic authenticity is reinforced by the use of Italian, German, Latin, and English lyrics. The sonic picture is refined by an expanded instrumentation including a grand piano and the compositions are even more straightforward, pithy and driving without losing their familiar playfulness. Galileo's story of dreams, faith, belief, hope, humiliation and heresy takes on a breathtaking musical life of its own. Full of power and fragility, emotiveness and sensitivity, brute force and tenderness, and last but not least full of independence. Like Galileo, Haggard have always believed in themselves, following their own aspirations and ideals.
