This is music I devised about the path to the underworld. You begin your journey in a small boat, rowed by a hooded figure whose face you never see. He leads you along a foggy river. There is no moon in the sky, yet there is enough light to see the way. You finally arrive at a shady shore, and the figure points for you to exit the boat. You go ashore and see another figure holding a lantern. He leads you along a dark and misty trail through a black forest. Spectres seem to twirl through the mist. After an incalculable amount of time, you arrive at a shaky rope bridge over a steep ravine. It leads to a secluded fortress surrounded only by clouds. You cross the bridge and arrive at the gates of the fortress. A pale but becoming man greets you and leads you inside the huge castle. In the great hall you see many faces, mostly unknown, but somehow familiar. The last thing you remember before waking up back on Earth is a beautiful woman approaching you, uttering words in a language you can't remember. Then, blackness... Was it just a dream?
