The riddle of the seven mystic symbols
« on: Fri, 2015-04-03, 11:21:30 »
Anyone solved the riddle so far?

Seven symbols, a lot of numbers on the first page of the booklet...

At the moment, I have no conclusion on this but will keep on solving.

Welcome back!  8)

And to answer your question: no.

But then again, I haven't got the cd yet. ;)
I could order it, and I will, but the band is on tour and won't be sending new cd's until the end of the month.

Patience, my dear mr. Watson.  8)

I can't solve the Runes mystery either despite doing extensive research on pagan symbology. (Is that a word?) I figured the symbols out but it doesn't make any sense and as for the numbers in the album booklet.....well, the mind boggles!  ???

I know what the numbers mean.

They lead to a message made from the lyrics. I don't want to say any more because it'll give it away. You can work it out without having read the lyrics.

Now that's two clues.

Go figure!  ;)

@keyboardistmatt
Good hints.


After lots of puzzeling I finally came to the same conclusion. A nice riddle.
One more hint: on the opposite page ist the tracklist.


The one with the runes I havn't solved so far... also after reading the short story. :-(
The short storie, which the album is based on can be found here:

Yep - and once you get it, you're going to hit yourself hard for not seeing it from the beginning!  ;)

I don't think you need to read the short story to solve the riddle of the runes... seems you're thinking too far. The solution is much closer!
