Opposite and complementary elements, dualism of reality: these are the topics covered by Ravenscry’s The Attraction of Opposites.
A reality in front of which a man makes choices, embracing one element or the other, based on his experience and judgement. But this will inevitably led him to clash with the opposite element, causing pain. Thirteen tracks in which Ravenscry, through music and lyrics, talk about opposites as conflict and attraction, taking us to a crossroads: keep changing preference towards an element or the other, or beginning to consider the interdependence of the two polarities, realising that one cannot exist without the other and seeing a complementarity in differences, which has a creative and developmental function for life.
The band said:
“The symmetrical/opposite location of the tracks means that we don’t presume to take positions on what’s right or wrong, but nonetheless we picture the personal choice as the main one: in all the lyrics there are different and subjective points of view, which all have their dignity and we simply show situations that sometimes are opposite and other times complementary and they inevitably tend to attract and confront one another. We let listeners choose their own interpretation, because the overcoming of suffering and alienation can only come from freedom. This happens in Cynic, a song that sums up the whole album’s concept.”
