Seven Gates 28:26
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!

Now and Ever 06:36
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!

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…

Alight Again 09:24
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!!

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
