One Last Step to Eternity is structured in 3 parts plus the Grand Finale composed of 3 songs, one of which is the title track.
The first part is a suite entitled Nocturnal Paroxysm divided into 6 movements, some of which have become singles and videos published on myspace and other websites as Summer Night Blues and Uncloudy Darkness of Lights.
The theme is madness, fear and alienation result of the perverse mechanisms and rules of our society. The suite is characterized by alternating of dreaming and lunar moments such as Moon Gleams and Summer Night Blues, and passages in the darkness of unconscious toward landscapes of full new moon plunged into dark and desolation that create the basis for the final race, a sort of escape from the world ...
The second part, composed of 3 songs, focuses on reminiscence, on memory as the only truth that hardly survives in the deserts of the mind, from which taking strength to look ahead to a gloomy and devastated future, protagonist of the third part, also composed by 3 songs.
The future, distant but so close, appears to be less and less free, humanity seems to see freedom only through a glass, without touching it , but the illusion of being free is inculcated right from childhood and monitored during all our lives. Everything is like a dance of skeletons (people) in a cemetery (Earth) observed with far and detached humor by the Graves Night Watchman (Divinity).
The Finale is composed of 3 songs, Remergence, a kind of pause for reflection cradled by the waves, Surrounding the Tide, whose theme is the inability to control the tide or the flow of thoughts, and One Last Step to Eternity...
Eternity is a step, a moment, a second... a memory is Eternity… the tape rewinds continuously in an infinite loop, one last step to Eternity...
