Alchemy is an ancient esoteric and philosophical system, combining elements of chemistry, physics, astrology, art, mysticism and religion.
The main goal of the alchemist is the creation of the Philosopher’s Stone, symbol of enlightenment and communion with God: each step taken to achieve this goal is an evolutionary step for the alchemist’s soul as well.
V.I.T.R.I.O.L. is a concept album inspired to the four stages of the alchemical work: a journey through darkness and light, in search of ancient, eternal wisdom.
