In celebration Rapoon's 25th Anniversary, Winter-Light are releasing a trilogy of exclusive new studio work entitled 'The Mercury Rising Trilogy'. 'Sanctus Equinox' is the first part. "What if you had created a race of sentient beings and then simply abandoned them, having no further use left for them? What might become of them and what sort of world would these replicants create for themselves, if left to their own devices? 'Sanctus Equinox' is a portrayal of that world, a painted landscape of the secret rites and ceremonies practiced by it's inhabitants. Celebrations and rituals created to overcome the sense of loss and abandonment, after being discarded by their creators... they gather en masse to worship under alien skies, bathed in the fractured light of moons and suns. Dressed in splendid costumes, they sing and dance along great winding, standing stone pathways; a procession of vibrant colours and chants moving hypnotically towards stone circles raised high to the heavens. As the solar winds blow across now empty plains, time stands still as chants of 'Sanctus Saves….' echoes through the air. Processed vocals, atmospheric pads, sub bass patterns, strings and old school sci-fi sounds all exquisitely layered to produce an album of intense beauty. A ray of shining hope in the lives of a forgotten people". 6-panel digipak.
