Arcanica is a prog metal/rock band from Philadelphia. The band is made up of an order of musicians channeling mythologies of the past to grapple with the complexities of the modern world. In their latest sonnet, The Fools Garden, they call on the element of earth. The Fools Garden is a song of life and death, melding dueling guitars with complex polyrhythms to create a sonic landscape that is punishing, soaring and cathartic.
The “Fool” is a powerful archetype that has been depicted in various forms of art, literature, and mythology throughout human history. In the Tarot, the Fool is often portrayed as a young man or woman embarking on a journey, with a small bag in hand and a faithful companion by their side. This archetype symbolizes the beginning of a new journey, a leap of faith, and the pursuit of one’s dreams.
Our new song “The Fool’s Garden”, pays homage to this powerful archetype and the essence of the Fool’s journey . The song speaks of taking risks, facing one’s fears, and embracing the unknown.
In many ways, the Fool’s Garden is a metaphor for life. We are all on a journey, and we all have moments when we must take risks and make difficult choices. The Fool reminds us that these moments are essential for growth and to help the universe to guide us along the way.
After all, sometimes the greatest rewards come from taking a leap of faith and embracing the unknown.
