Requiem Compound

by A Forest Opera



This is my first solo project. This project had started in 2009, when I decided I wanted to make a concept album. I never expected anyone else to listen to it, until around mid 2013 when I wanted to revisit and revive my old projects. This came around the same time some of my Cafe Alt friends showed genuine interests to my projects and encouraged me to release my works.
The original 6 tracks are now revisited as well as an additional 2 new track added splitting the two halves of the album and adding a new angle I had never thought possible. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my album and thank you for the feedback. I appreciate the support.


released December 10, 2013

Songs written and produced by Jesse Morel with the exception of "To the Lost and Fallen" written by Jesse Morel and Leo Nieminen.
