CD 8: "Alive!" (hardcover 'leather look' book)
"Everyone dies....This is a fact of life...
One we all have to learn sometime during our stay on this world. Part of the fatal attraction of shuffling along this mortal coil is the inevitability of meeting the Grim Reaper at journey's end... Plants, animals, people, all living creatures at some point fall down and return to the earth they were made of. Yet as long as we recollect the ones that have gone before, even as we continue to respect their words and the art they left behind, the echo of whom they once were lives on.
You see, even though the artist may die, the art remains forever Alive!" Steve Sic Evans van der Harten, midsummer 2007
The OMNIA CD "Alive!" is a work of pure art. The music is haunting and inspiring and the cover is without doubt one of the most beautiful OMNIA has ever made,thanx to the fact that it has been lovingly illustrated by one of the greatest living artists of our time: Alan Lee ("Lord of the Rings", "Faeries"etc)...Its disc and pages filled with exquisite timeless poetry born from the minds of renowned poets such as Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll and Steve Sic..
Joining OMNIA on these recordings are master musician Michael Popp of the German bands "Estampie" and "Qntal", Oliver "S.Tyr" Pade of "Faun" and Michiel "tapanar" Bakkes of the Bulgarian group "Izvor".
"Alive!" was released on August 3rd 2007 (release party at the Dutch fantasy festival "Castlefest")
