A Tear Beyond


“A Tear Beyond” is an identity composed of reality, spirit, theatre and music. When the dusk starts, it takes place and lives over there, where every single thing becomes long and shaped.

It mixes the Mask and the Face.

It represents the breath keeping them both alive, feeding one each other. It delves into the feelings and their color, melting Gothic and Industrial sound, seeking the proper way to express them trusting words to investigates souls’ depths.


The Rose, the Balance, the Chains, the Wine, the Fool Tarot and the Pen are those elements composing the identity… the Mask keeps them together safely.

The Grace, the Equilibrium, the Opposites, the Instinct, the Madness and the Knowledge are those elements coming out from it. Men are only a vehicle…
