The Eternal Dance is a concept album about cycles. It features the Hindu goddess Kali on the cover, who's role in mythology is that of both a mother goddess as well as a bringer of destruction.
The album title was inspired by the idea that our lives, our ideas, and all the things that surround us are just small motions in a larger movement: a never-ending dance that is the Universe. One motion ends, but a new one follows up to continue the dance. One life ends, but a new life is born.
Each song on the album represents a phase in that cycle, both lyrically as well as musically. It starts heavy and energetic, and gradually moves into a more sluggish, dragging kind of vibe.
The fifth song "Moksha"–Sanskrit for liberation and freedom–represents the release from this cycle of death and rebirth and features spoken words by the 20th-century zen philosopher Alan Watts, taken from a lecture about his thoughts on death.
