Viola Organista-The Macabre Carnival
Viola Organista - The Macabre Carnival is the evolution of ASA's Ill-Fated 2016 album "Viola Organista...and Other Impossible Dreams", ASA's 5th studio release. Due to personal, personnel and life changes - Alice Sweet Alice was almost destroyed, but due to perseverance, passion and determination - completely reformed and evolved into the band it is today. The songs from the album evolved with us. The Macabre Carnival is a world that blossomed from our Impossible Dreams - a harder, darker, more intense and driven world we now live in. Bonus tracks are on the CD and electronic version, Sucker and Smile, part of the story post 2016 and bringing us into the future. This album is a doorway to our new carnival of dreams which has become a marvelous reality.
