about

Sound for Good records have partnered with Trees for the Future to offer the new release "A Titans Penance For The Theft Of Fire" by Kinematik VKE. Optionally, your donation of any amount to help support the Trees for the Future project would be greatly appreciated in helping us make a difference in the world by planting more trees with music.

Forever shall the intolerable present grind you down.
And he who will release you is not born.
Such fruit you reap for your man-loving ways.
A god yourself, you did not dread God's anger,
But gave to mortals honor not their due.
And therefore you must guard this joyless rock,
No rest, no sleep, no moment's respite.
Groans shall your speech be, lamentation your only words. - Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound

Fate has not been kind to Prometheus, fellow titan of Zeus. A trickster and thief. A hero of mortals. He fooled Zeus to accept sacrifices of viscera and bone while man feasts on meat at their tables. They were given fire from the gods, but was returned from them as an affront to Zeus, who took it away. As revenge and punishment he was taken by Force and Violence to the Kazbek Mountain and chained to a boulder for all eternity. Every day he is being slowly picked at, eaten, tortured by an eagle sent from the heavens, only to heal every night so that the cycle begins anew.

Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. More information can be found at www.plant-trees.org
