The intro of “H.I.” starts with a spiritual tone and sets the mood for the album’s most ethereal song. Even after all the instruments enter the musical landscape, the song keeps the spiritual tone and even expands on it with the introduction of clean vocals. One can feel the significance of every note that’s being played because of the deliberate and steadfast playing style. The lyrics encourage listeners to “evade the artificial ways” and to “embrace the chaos to be free”. The melancholic eastern melodies near the end instantly transport the listener to a simpler and yet archaic age then bring them crashing back down to modern reality.

The musical tapestry of “Alpha Lyræ” unfolds as a rich and diverse fusion, blending the weighty gravitas of death doom, the intricate elements of progressive rock/metal, and the expansive atmospheres of post-rock, showcasing a sonic palette that transcends conventional boundaries. Born from the creative vision of a Peruvian solo artist residing in London, ALPHA LYRÆ emerges as a deeply personal and introspective musical endeavor. Conceived as a sonic response to the imminent birth of his daughter in 2020, ALPHA LYRÆ draws inspiration from her place in this turbulent world and contemplates her future within it. With unwavering dedication to his daughter, ALPHA LYRÆ unfolds as a profound musical odyssey and serves as more than just an artistic effort; it is a heartfelt exploration and tribute to the anticipated challenges and wonders that will shape the next generation's journey through life.
