Bal-Sagoth: "The Dreamer in the Catacombs of Ur" from the album "Atlantis Ascendant". Slideshow of images featuring Ur, Sumeria, Babylon, Cthulhu, etc.
This song details the exploits of Doctor Ignatius X. Stone, a character created by Bal-Sagoth lyricist/vocalist Byron Roberts. Doctor Stone's discoveries in "Unfettering The Hoary Sentinels Of Karnak" ultimately lead him to the ancient city of Ur, and that song forms a duology with "The Dreamer In The Catacombs Of Ur".
"ATLANTIS ASCENDANT" is now available as a limited edition digipack with expanded lyric booklet, additional artwork and remastered audio. Released by Metal Mind Productions under licence from Nuclear Blast.
