    In his review of Reliquary, Eric Harabadian described the music of Quicksilver Night as “a very Euro-centric melodic-progressive style with occasional metallic flourishes. On the leading edge are dreamily lilting female vocals and aggressive guitars with ample symphonic embellishment [which] lend the arrangements alluring breadth . . . Singer Meagan Finning does a fine job on the likes of the melodically compelling Sojourner and Harlequin Domino, her delivery assuming Celtic and madrigal nuances . . . Quicksilver Night saved the best for last with guitarist Farzad Golpayegani on The Juggernaut Caprice. His Marty Friedman/Greg Howe-styled frenzy puts icing on the cake with a richly fleet-fingered approach that sizzles.”

Chrysalis 06:19
I feel the Sun on my skin, warm and dreaming again… I hear a song on the wind like a distant refrain… I raise my eyes, look to the skies, and I find peace in symmetry… No less majestic for having suggestions of chance… I stand in awe of it all, humble, joined in the dance… The cold elegy of autumn’s butterfly echoes warm in spring rain… Watching clouds sail past the Moon, drifting, my thoughts; alone… Though the Piper calls the tune, the steps that I choose are my own… Borne on the winds, water will always find its way back to the sea… Day follows night follows day, marching past in parade… Somehow seemingly unchanged, moments still slip away… Yesterday’s kings on swiftest wings flew, faded into history… All that I do, all I say, curtains fall, ending the play… And all that ever stood blocking my way void at the end of the day… Although the Piper is calling the tune, new wings unfold light and strong... And though the song seems to end all too soon, taking flight facing the night, The band plays on…

about

With heavily interwoven melodies and lyrics that address topics that don’t usually surface in popular music, “Reliquary” is an eclectic album of songs with a lot of the hallmarks of progressive rock – such as exotic modalities and composite meters – but it is music that eschews extended song structures in favor of a more concise compositional approach.

Tracks:
1. Ultima Forsan – “Quiet gears are turning, tick the moments away…”
2. Harlequin Domino – “…hammered cold, tempering without pain in the crucible of dreams”
3. Sojourner – “Marching on, cruel rebirth, sojourner on this Earth…”
4. Exegesis – “Bread on depths obscured, what do we dare bait? Sinking unobserved, hic sunt dracones.”
5. Nihil Tactum – “All the words we say until today touch upon nothing.”
6. Legerdemain (feat. Lavaman) ♫
7. Chrysalis – “The cold elegy of autumn’s butterfly echoes warm in spring rain.”
8. Leviathan – “Walking on the water, do you still fear the serpent underneath?”
9. The Juggernaut Caprice (feat. Farzad Golpayegani) ♫

The nine-song Reliquary physical CD comes also with enclosed digital downloads for Quicksilver Night’s three-song Lucent EP (Precipice, Lucent, and Again the Cusp) as well as the standalone guitar-driven instrumentals Navigation and Segerns Vingar, fourteen songs total. All five of these titles are also available separately at digital retailers everywhere.
