A musical journey of remarkable breadth and imagination, Urania comprises everything from avant garde electronic music to free jazz to prog metal to synth soundscapes. Despite its diversity, the songs are unified by cohesive rhythmic, emotional, and atmospheric concepts. Dynamic arrangements which frequently diverge into unpredictable territory weave the album into a poignant narrative, the story of a romantic bond slowly deteriorating across twelve musical meditations.
