Hi everyone,
I just wanted ask what this album is trying to tell?I'm not very good at english and it seems that there are a lot of metaphors in the lyrics(if im correct).Can anyone clarify the main theme and the ideas in each song?
Sorry if this is posted in wrong section,thanks for your attention

Hey man, glad to see you must like the album, Phideaux is a great guy and excellent musician.

On what the album is about, it's part of a planned trilogy (The Great Leap being the first and it being the second) about a civilization that is ecologically dying. I think that's what he's said anyways. The lyrics are indeed complex but basically the whole album is about a dystopian future kind of thing. It's much more complicated than that but even I can't decrypt it all. I guess that's what makes the album so lovable.

I hope that helps at least a little.

This is a very good album indeed,i wonder if i should listen to The Great Leap to understand this album much more easily.
You said this is a part of trilogy,if this is the second part,number 7 or snowtorch is third?

No, those are different beasts entirely. LOL

The third part has yet to come.

And warning: The Great Leap sounds dramatically different from Doomsday Afternoon. The only thing they really share is lyrical theme.

Also, welcome to the forum. Thumbs Up

I wonder if we'll ever see a part three.  I think all the ideas he was working on got absorbed into Number Seven and Snowtorch.  Not to say that he won't come up with new ideas at some point for a part 3.

You will of course want to get those two and The Great Leap.

The title track from the album Chupacabras is an absolute monster!
Open the gates of the city wide....

if you liked Doomsday you should definitely check Snowtorch. The musical style is similar and it has the same epic feeling.

You can listen to it @ Phideaux bandcamp.  http://phideaux.bandcamp.com/album/snowtorch
