This track is roughly at the halfway point of the album and has a very melancholy feel. It’s at this point in the story that our narrator finds himself longing for the innocence he once knew and simultaneously overcome with anxiety from the occult knowledge he has attained. It’s a rather introspective and haunting track.
“The Stranger Things I’ve Learned” is one of a few low-key numbers on Haunter of the Dark where we went for more of a classic prog feel. The arrangement slightly veers into the orchestral, but in a way the supports the main instrumentation of the band. It’s sonically open and ebbs and flows musically in a very dream-like way.
There is a lot of variety on Haunter of the Dark from the 18 minute prog epic “The Church” to softer tracks like “Federal Hill” and more heavy hitting numbers like “Fear” and the title track, “Haunter of the Dark.” We’ve gotten nice responses to the new release and recently returned from an extensive U.S. tour with FATES WARNING. We’ve shared the stage with Haken, Thank You Scientist, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, as well as Brand X, and we’re looking forward to bringing our live show to even more audiences.
