The mission:
To spread so much Love that this world has to change…
then peacefully fade out of memory of existence…
my subtle idea of perfection…

This is the first single for upcoming album “Sin Chronic City” which of course is play on words for Synchronicity. I hope you find something you connect with here and grow with. And I hope you find something you don’t connect with and learn to heart it hard. Oneness or something and the linking of ourselves through souls…For may what we do now echoes out through eternity like the slow fade of love…For Love is infinite and thus triumphed death…Interwoven through a painful struggle and re-unstrangled out the other side by glory & grace…
(Recording and Mixing by Joey Paradis at RxP Studios)

…Never Influenced…Always Inspired…Spread Love…


The mystical Black Lion looks out ahead with his eyes fixed and focused out unto the horizon. Upon some point of past shadows and demons with the blood, he paid through countless battles to be at the point where he is now, is still poignantly fresh and trickling down his eye and the front of his mane. Here he still stands victorious. A heart catharticly emoting the treasures and wars of it’s own eternalness. This is my spirit animal. This is my story. This is Kidnapped.

This album Kidnapped is both literal and personal for me from a whirlwind of emotions from when I was young and then extrapolating that metaphorically paralleling the effects of an enslaved mentality and the way the world works.

 

In case any of you may be interested in the breakdown of this universe deemed Kidnapped, this is in way a double album that works to each of it’s parts. The halves CD 1 & CD 2 are split in 18 songs a piece, symbolically representing the gift of ‘Life’ blessed to Us. (חי )

 

Each part has it’s respective bonds as well. Tied to the trauma of Kidnapped thy psyche…

The first half represents physical and emotional trauma. Each half however, is in two parts, broken between 9 songs a piece…9 numerologically is linked to the cross and finality of things. The first nine songs tied to physical and the next nine emotional.

 

The second half represents psychological and spiritual trauma. Also to note, the first 9 songs of the album and last nine allude to each other more with words while the middle flow with each other more musically, giving the universe of Kidnapped a circle, mathematically π or ‘Life’…

 

The weird and wild chaoticness of a Kidnapped psyche is balanced by breaking these two testaments of lives within themselves for a structured four parts bound by the cross, or nine. Four represents disciple and stability, thus winning back the psyche from what was Kidnapped. Furthermore, for each part of nine there is a song that acts as a bridge on the fifth song of each of the four parts. The fifth being perfectly fit to give flux within each part to give ties and leeway respectively within each.

 

Lastly, there are three bonus tracks. Of course three representing the trinity. Two books of Life with the trinity hiddenly woven beyond it. Thus, we brave the thirty-nine stripes of Jesus Christ. In essence, One may be Kidnapped, but the soul only grows beyond…Thusly, in a world of where religions are bastardized, the holy spirit within Us cannot be defeated. God was stolen from Us. Kidnapped is the stealing of God back unto His children…

 

Love has already won; so we will always overcome…

This is the first song I’ve completed entirely in Japanese!

Shh, this is one of the bonus tracks off the upcoming Kidnapped album so it may only be on Soundcloud for a limited time. The instrumental was produced by the awesome DJ Cutlass!  This is a fun Japanese trap song that is bouncy and danceable while still being lyrical and uplifting, I hope you dig it and have as much fun bouncing around to this as I did making it 🙂
