GREAT MELODIES. Melodies are the gold bar currency of Progressive Rock and there's enough of them in AKP’s latest offering to sink a battleship!

Remaining loyal to the gorgeous ethnic sound that is the bands trademark as ever Kalugin also stays true to his love of early CAMEL, FOCUS and THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT to name just a few.

The seventh Karfagen chapter is a journey into myths and legends, a search for the truth within the figments of the imagination, everything and everywhere.

It concerns the mighty luck and inexplicable power of “7”. Things that impress folk so much that it can even become an obsession taking over there whole lives. WOW such power. “7”

Centered around the epic 28 minute monster track “Seven Gates” this is a journey you must get your ticket for and climb on board another MAGICAL CARPET ride from the great man and LONG MAY IT CONTINUE.

I was safely seated on that ride from the beginning, it was 4 months of the most exciting exhilarating musical experience I have been lucky enough to be involved in and thats saying something with the list of quality albums I have been privileged down the years to be on board with. SO CHECK OUT you lucky folks !

THE FLAME REMAINS ALIVE AND BURNING BRIGHT FOR OUR GENRE

The Seventh Karfagen chapter is a journey into the myths and
legends, a search for the truth within the figments of the
imagination, everything & everywhere. It concerns the mighty
luck and inexplicable power of “7”. Things that impress
folk so much, that it can even become an obsession taking
over there whole lives. WOW such power - 7
Centred on the epic track “Seven Gates” which was created during spring 2015.
It captures the direction to the entire albums mood. It`s the first time the
whole material for one of my albums was written just some 4 - 5 months before its
release date. As usual while finishing an album I have some demos, some ideas for
the future one. In case with “7” - all the previously composed demos I left for
the 8th Karfagen album “Omnitenna”, as the concept of the “7” captured me as well.
Talking about the sound of the album, I’ve done my best to create it with the
variety of being both dynamic and also allowing the music to breath. To recreate late
70`s prog “tone” that I still enjoy so much today.
Many thanks to all art rock fans, families, friends, storytellers, dreamers, painters,
musicians, critics, soldiers, teachers, preachers and lovers... Everyone who forms,
creates, explores, expands and inflates the life with harmony and meaning... AK

Track Name: Seven Gates
01 Seven Gates

You have to come along this way,
You have to trust,
The hand of fate will paint the day
Down on the dust
So ardently, suddenly

Seven options, seven doors
The luck is your mind...
The right direction, right threshold
You have to find
So ardently, definitely!

Seven planets, guide the soul
Seven wonders – magic scroll!

Random calls, uncertain day
The flare`s knifing the sky.
He`s counting minutes in the day,
He`s spent much time without even trying
Oh loneliness – so motionless!

Heaven – Seven!
Heaven - Seven!
Seven planets, guide the soul
Seven wonders – magic scroll!

Now you see the route
So now you feel the mood!
Why you have to seek salvation
Welcome to the secrete world
Celebration and passion
Definition, compassion...

Now you`ve found the road,
Seven is the hope!
Compassion

Seven planets, guide the soul
Seven wonders – magic scroll!
Heaven!
Track Name: Now and Ever
02. Now and Ever

Across the golden sky
Straight to my heart
The black breast robin flies
To where our tale start
It`s there in every pilgrim`s eyes,
It`s there in every strangers soul,
The fear of lost
The fear of the fall...

Standing still on a hill
Gazing at the heaven`s dome,
Hypnotized – still filling thrill
Far in the distance is my home…
The lights of day, the stars at night
Are calling me forever,
Boundless Ocean – peace of mind
Promise land for now and ever!
For now and ever!
For now and ever!
And the devil cries, when the
Peace for now and ever!
And the sun will shine!
Home for now and ever!

“Good evening old man
Can you tell me what lies over that hill
I’m new to these parts and I need my stomach to fill!
I’ve been walking since the cock crowed
And my appetite is amazing but
There’s nothing i have seen that would be
Tasty on a plate
As I need my stomach to fill”

“Why my dear man you look so weary
There’s a place near by that will meet your desires
There’s music that plays and a big old fire
That will warm your loins and refresh your spirits
Come follow me to the old inn on the riverside”

Some hours later, as he walked back down the hillside
His cheeks a flame and his stomach so wide
He sang the robins song!

Its breast now red to black
The cannons fire capturing the day light
Carrying the message that saved our folk
So now I can breathe this sacred air!
So now I can breathe this sacred air!
For now and ever!
Gods promised land!

For now and ever!
It`s in every pilgrim`s eyes
Love for now and ever!
No more wars and lies
Peace for now and ever!
And the devil cries, when the
Trust for now and ever!
And the sun will rise!
Home for now and ever!

No more long goodbyes
Promised land,
For now and ever!!!
Ever! Ever!
Ever! Ever!
No more wars and lies!
Track Name: Hopeless Dreamer
03. Hopeless Dreamer

Passionate story
In a vertigo tale
Losing consciousness
Heights you seek to scale!
Passionate people
In a permanent trance
There`s a blazing ripple
In a fake romance.

And you,
You`re - riding the storm
Seems like your – all alone, all alone…
Roads, keep rolling, searching for Love
Hopeless dreamer longing for Love...

Friday morning sun stands tall
Cup of tea with a dear old friend,
Wishing well, seeking peace blue sky
Wishing health forever to the end!
Ray of light – up in the sky
Fly high – up to the sky
Dream away – up in the sky
Out of sight –up in the sky!

Radio waves -
Bring the news of the day
Bring the portion of storm
Turn the heart to stone!

Wow – up in the sky!
Wow – up in the sky!
You – always riding the storm
Seems like you – all alone...
You... you reach the sacred ground
When there`s something lost
Something will be found!
Roads, keep rolling, searching for peace
Hopeless dreamer - amused to tears…

When the evening comes,
There`s a smile on your face
And even thru the hardest run
We will all meet at our fireplace.
Ray of light – up in the sky
Fly high – up to the sky
Dream away – oh, for a blue sky
Out of sight – just another sky!

You – always riding the storm
Seems like you are – all alone!
Always Alone!
And you will unite the tear
And you will explain to me,
Why we are so far from here!!
From the sacred ground
When the signs lost…
How I wish to be found
Hopeless dreamer with the bane in his blood
Roaring, rolling, searching for God…
Track Name: Alight Again
04. Alight Again

I need to know, need to know
That in the dark of the night
There`s a candle burning bright
That’s just for you and me

I need to know, I need to know
When the light disappears,
You have nothing to fear
That candle`s alight for me and you

I need to know
I need to know
I need to know
I need to know
Yes I need to know
That candle burns ever bright
For you, for you and me

My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!

I need to know; yes I need to know,
That candle burns ever bright for you
For you and me...

When I awake,
As the cock crows,
So my heart is alight again
It`s the perception -
The key to my heart

It`s the key to your heart,
It`s the key to my heart,
in the dark of the night,
Candle`s burning bright!

My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!
My heart is alight again!


I need to know
that candle burns
ever bright for you!!
