Haggard - Vinyle


A very important album in Haggard’s success story is “Eppur Si Muove” (Italian for “and it (Planet Earth) does move”), released back in 2004. It concentrates on the historic figure of Galileo Galilei and invites the audience to a third journey into the past. In the 16th century, the Italian philosopher and mathematician, Galileo, challenged the Roman Catholic Church’s geocentric conception of the world, claiming that the earth rotates around the sun, and not vice versa. Like everybody who opposed God’s truth, he was sentenced by the Church for his blasphemy.

Galileo’s story of dreams, faith, belief, hope, humiliation and heresy takes on a breath taking musical life of its own, full of power and fragility, emotiveness and sensitivity, brute force and tenderness, and last but not least full of independence. Like Galileo, Haggard have always believed in themselves, following their own aspirations and ideals.

Available on vinyl for the very first time – “Eppur Si Muove” comes in two different versions: Black and water blue-marbled, each strictly limited to 500 units.
