ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Socrates ... better known as anti-virtuoso guitarist, has released 5 albums to date, of which only 2 are counted as true records and containing original music, and blah blah blah ... very little is known of the initial stage of Socrates just picked up his guitar at age 13 ... but the real story of Socrates, never been told before is what you'll read at these lines ...

The real story begins when Socrates finished editing his album "Socrates Solo", after some controversy with the album cover, the truth is that nobody listened to that album, only to read the title said it all ... well ... there is a Socrates story that after released that album and published in the Internet, was allegedly abducted by aliens, aliens from outer space ... but the truth, no one knows what kind of beings were the ones who took a trip Socrates hallucinations . Yes, it most likely was due to the similarity of the character of the guitarist's album cover, with the aliens.After this, Socrates was never the same, sources close to the guitarist say he speaks about voices he listen into his mind, the voices dictates things to do, but more than that, the voices dictates what music to write, how to write , how to play, and the background message of Socrates music. Socrates plunged into complete anonymity since these events occurred, with no desire to return to the gigs or any stage shows, and just focused on his bedroom-studio making music.

So far what we know is that Socrates has become a kind of automaton, obeying orders of unknown beings for us. Other people (musicians) also ensures even have direct communication with these aliens, one is called Doutis, and the other is Thianis. One of the many musicians abductees explains: "The idea of these beings is to spread his message Through musicians, writers, painters and artists in general through a similar process to hypnosis." Also tell us what one of the aliens talk about Socrates "Socrates is a PLC, composed the music that we say, and play the notes that we say to him, is a simple instrument, in that regard Socrates is not a musician, he is the music that we dictate."

Certainly, Socrates continues to hear voices and compose music without knowing the course of it, as shown in his latest album titled Freakshow where voices have had a particular influence on his music writing.
