The lyrics of Medusa are rooted in the magic and mystery of epic stories from Greek mythology. It is through compelling characters like Medusa and Perseus that Crimson explores his personal experiences with romantic love, faith, self-discovery, grief, death and beyond.Crimson’s songs shift perspectives between characters in order to shed light on different scenes from his own life through powerful, distinct voices. By diving into the depths of mythology and adding his own contemporary interpretations of classic tales, Crimson opens up a mysterious yet relatable new world.
