about

elixir; \i-ˈlik-sər\ : a substance held capable of prolonging life indefinitely

Elixir is a modern day account of alchemy, drowned in ambition, capturing not just the powers of the individual, but that of space, and all eternity..

This 8-chapter LP tells the story of a man whose lust for cradling the world’s powers extends beyond that of human control, and to that of the universe. On a mission to re-create the philosopher’s stone, each track depicts the steady demise of such powers, where life and love helplessly suspend too far below him.

How long will we search for the beyond until our inner selves become completely lost.
