Dave Aftandilian Gently shimmering, visionary DS that transports the listener to realms of magic and mystery where choirs of lofty trees sing in vibrating emerald notes to silvery rain clouds, and faery fireflies dance all night, flashing their colors in gorgeous spectra invisible to mortals.

Iron Skullet Listening to The Long Quest is like like sinking into the soft, warm clay of a sacred forest and being perfectly content to die there. Beautiful organ melodies and excellent use of atmospheric effects create a softly mesmerizing listening space, and Torchlight subtly layers new musical ideas over one another to pull listeners in deeper the longer they listen. Favorite track: The mountain path.

“The long quest” is conceived as a journey into a dreamland where pristine nature reigns and unknown creatures living in it. Plants, trees and elements of the Earth show anthropomorphic traits and communicate with other living things in a telepathic way, without using a codified language. The backbone of the whole album is supported by the sound of an organ that recalls the reverberations of this communication between creatures that live in this magical land. In the background, drums coming from the depths of the caverns, choirs from the ruins of the temples, pads that hold mesmeric arpeggios. This journey will bring Torchlight to get in touch with the primordial essence of life: a long quest for hidden and forgotten beauty, whose vision is only possible through a long journey and a meditation of the mighty wonders of creation.
