With the band's upcoming second album Ex Libris tells the tale of the Greek tragedy Medea. In this ancient narrative Medea, daughter of King Aetes of Colchis, betrays her fatherland by helping Jason steal the coveted Golden Fleece*. Upon fleeing her birth ground Medea kidnaps her brother, dismembers his body and scatters his body parts into the sea to distract Aetes fleet and escape**.
Jason and Medea come to live in Corinth. They marry and welcome two sons. But soon their happiness comes to an end. Jason falls in love with Glauce, daughter of Creon, king of Corinth. Afraid of Medea's revenge Creon decides to banish Medea, but she refuses to leave and begs Jason to return to her and their sons.
Jason denies Medea's lament and announces to marry Glauce. When their wedding day comes Medea says to have forgiven the bride and groom and gives Glauce a wedding veil. Then, as Glauce puts on the veil she, and all who touch her trying to rescue the bride, turn into dust***.
After murdering Glauce and Creon and leaving Corinth without a ruler, Medea sets out to commit the ultimate revenge. She murders her own two sons and leaves Jason with his immense grief. Tormented and haunted by her deeds she flees Corinth never to return again.

* Medea
** Murderess in me
*** Daughter of Corinth

Lyrics Ex Libris - Medea

Whispers announce history
Spoken have we, about him
Come the green of night
a story once more shall now ignite
I Medea shall leave my dear repose
Whispers announce history
Spoken have we about him
So announces the green of the night

Darkness shades my moonlit shadow
Have I gone? Have I forgotten my soul?
Blindness leads me to open meadow
thus now I must avow
Jason, I seek you through all natures' coves
Hear me now! Through our love this story shall be told

I Medea will not be dethroned!
Where I go my name shall be known
Mistress of darkness, daughter of the day
My word shall reign, come what may

Blend with me now, our futures
A thief you'll become by my hand
I need your vow, Jason
To gold leads this chance you cannot withstand

Gold, as bright as the sunlight comes as you please
Gold, comes to us within this night, Jason come with me

Darkness shades our moonlit shadows
Have we gone, have we forgotten our souls
Blindness leads us to open meadow
thus now we must avow
Jason, I seek you, through all natures' coves
Hear me now, through our love this story shall be told

Run, without fear you cannot hide
now you're entwined with your fate and I,
I cherish the wistfulness of my father
His fear he cannot hide
For I was his daughter

I Medea will not be dethroned!
Where I go my name shall be known
Mistress of darkness, daughter of the day
My word shall reign, come what may
