(G)nosis - "Gladiator" | Official Music Video
LOST FILE: After the only known hard drive to contain GLADIATOR was stolen from a studio in Los Angeles along with thousands of dollars of equipment two years ago, the full music video was finally returned to (G)nosis by a fan who had “acquired” it. But, before that, apparently the video had been making the rounds in the underground and became quite the buzz, long before the original had been returned. Timeless Classic Music tried to track them down, with no luck. All (G)nosis had was a rough edit that was unsuitable for release; he thought the video was gone forever, so we are very proud to finally present (thanks to one incredible fan) the much talked about music video - GLADIATOR!

The Midnight Drifter LP is ONLY fully understood when joined together with The Sleepwalker EP. Every song placed on The Sleepwalker EP is vital to the survival & safe return of The Midnight Drifter LP . If you, the Listener wish to continue the path, The Sleepwalker MUST be downloaded for the story to truly unfold itself to you.
The Sleepwalker EP presents the Listener with the opportunity to approach a peering glass window to taking a glimpse into a world that is refered to by most as the dream state. For the majority, believing this to be 'real' would go against everything believed to be the Reality that most hold on to so tightly...or would it?
It is fine to envision The Sleepwalker EP as The Trailer for The Midnight Drifter LP, mainly because it is important to understand that the two blend seamlessly as to effortlessly shine light on a quest of bringing life to light during its discovery amidst the darkest hour. The only way to truly experience the journey of The Sleepwalker is to become that which you study.
The Midnight Drifter takes the Listener through a three-phase dream process. It begins by The Drifter just laying down for bed, transitioning to being completely asleep and then Drifting out of the dream state back into consciousness after the dream/sleep is over. The Midnight Drifter has a lot of onion layers that can be studied for lifetimes for further understanding, however, those layers are left to be explored and interpretation formed by the Listener. This is a concept album in the sense that a concept is presented, and left for the Listeners to ponder or Drift on, however, its abstract nature leaves much to be desired. The live nature of the various compositions brings about a sense of real-time (happening now) to the Drift, while the smooth melodic compositions allow The Drifter to flow effortlessly through each state of consciousness and never really feel as though they have drifted too far from themselves to bring about a significant disturbance to their sleep.
Duality in balance is essential in understanding the true essence of this album. From lyrics, to music to the sonic qualities of The Midnight Drifter, certain elements present themselves obviously, while others will reveal themselves in due time. The theme creates the contrast of darkness to light, while it leads The Drifter to believe that they may have found light at the end of the tunnel/ dream state, it can be missed that the entire day of light is still ahead of them the next morning. As the album progresses The Drifter will find that the travel through each song is almost a dream, within a dream, within a dream, within a dream. The Midnight Drifter is an archetype for everyone that has ever had questions about life, and as so, will leave The Drifter to wonder if the beginning of the dream is ending or if the ending of the dream is just beginning.
On this journey you are asked only to listen. You may form an opinion for or against, however, to have an opinion you must first be open. Their is something to be learned from this then. Even in what we hate, we can find something we love. You are asked to be open, honest and trusting of yourself on this path, and it is therefore with great humility, and well wishes that Timeless Classic Music present you with The Sleepwalker EP to follow the path of The Midnight Drifter LP... To ultimately discover the legacy of The DayDreamer.
