Since day one of his creative odyssey Efes has been guided by a maxim he has coined himself: "better less but more often and of higher quality" and thus he has been consistent in bringing new releases to his audience, no matter what. Well, 2015 is no exception and with a feeling of pride for a big deal accomplished, Efes is happy to present yet another FS PROJEKT release - the Garpiya (The Harpy) EP!
For FS PROJEKT this EP is a logical next step in the general fantasy-metal creative aesthetic development. All the songs of this release can be characterized by tunefulness, the complexity and at the same time harmony of both instrumental and vocal arrangements, high intensity of lyrics and their delivery. Yet the overall tone is a bit darker and heavier as a result of the evolution of Efes' approach to the project's sound.
This new FS PROJEKT EP comprises three songs: Garpiya [The Harpy] (a so-called "anti-love song", incidentally based on a true story), Shest Strün [Six Strings] (a general reflection on the place and role of music and creative work) and Bagroviy Parus [The Crimson Sail] (inspired by Robin Hobb's The Farseer Trilogy).
It is noteworthy that it is in this release that Efes is coming out for the first time as a backing vocalist, having recorded the second voice for the interlude of the Shest Strün song.
