Concerning ‘ Goddess Presiding Over Solitude ‘, HEAVENWOOD’s lead guitarist and melodic singer Ricardo Dias said, ” ‘ Goddess Presiding Over Solitude ‘ contains more heavier and pompous sounding stuff than ever done before by HEAVENWOOD. This song grabs the listener by the throat with some of the most intense riffs of the album and is built in emotional intensity as the lyric concept is inspired on a poem adapted to English from our very first Portuguese female poet D. Leonor also known as Marquesa de Alorna. “
