about

concept album about the story of... Your life maybe.

It's a Christian instrumental concept album blending alternative and progressive rock. It's main theme is the lifestory of many of us - with many difficulties and failures on the narrow way to Jesus Christ. That's why the album is titled "intricate paths of conversion".

(Matthew 7:13-14) (NIV 1984)
“[13] Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
[14] But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Hey, I'm a polish independent Christian artist (that is to say, hobbyist ;D) and after a few years I recently finished my first self produced (that is to say, home-recorded ;D) LP album (truly looooongplay - 21 tracks, 2CDs, almost 86 minutes) and cannot wait to share it with the world for free :D

In Christ!
Best regards,
Mateusz Kaźmierczak (aka mkaz)

Track Name: the gift of free will
(Deuteronomy 30:15-20) (NIV 1984)
“[15] See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.
[16] For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
[17] But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them,
[18] I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
[19] This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
[20] and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
Track Name: rush
(Luke 14:15-24) (NIV 1984)
“[15] When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, "Blessed is the man who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God."
[16] Jesus replied: "A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests.
[17] At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, 'Come, for everything is now ready.'
[18] But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, 'I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.'
[19] Another said, 'I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I'm on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.'
[20] Still another said, 'I just got married, so I can't come.'
[21] The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.'
[22] 'Sir,' the servant said, 'what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.'
[23] Then the master told his servant, 'Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full.
[24] I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.'"”
Track Name: transient idyll
(Matthew 19:13-15) (NIV 1984)
“[13] Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them.
[14] Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
[15] When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.”
Track Name: disillusion
(Matthew 12:38-41) (NIV 1984)
“[38] Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you."
[39] He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
[40] For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
[41] The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here."”
Track Name: surrounded by dimness
(James 4:1-10) (NIV 1984)
“[1] What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
[2] You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.
[3] When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
[4] You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
[5] Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?
[6] But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
[7] Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
[8] Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
[9] Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.
[10] Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
Track Name: temptations
(James 1:12-15) (NIV 1984)
“[12] Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
[13] When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
[14] but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.
[15] Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”
Track Name: a feeling of emptiness
(Job 8:11-15) (NIV 1984)
“[11] Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh? Can reeds thrive without water?
[12] While still growing and uncut, they wither more quickly than grass.
[13] Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless.
[14] What he trusts in is fragile; what he relies on is a spider's web.
[15] He leans on his web, but it gives way; he clings to it, but it does not hold.”
Track Name: distorted love and the master of lies
(1 Corinthians 6:12-20) (NIV 1984)
“[12] "Everything is permissible for me" - but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me" - but I will not be mastered by anything.
[13] "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food" - but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
[14] By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.
[15] Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
[16] Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
[17] But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
[18] Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
[19] Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
[20] you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.”
Track Name: but Someone is waiting for You
(Matthew 11:28-30) (NIV 1984)
“[28] Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
[29] Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
[30] For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Track Name: collapse
(Galatians 5:24-26) (NIV 1984)
“[24] Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
[25] Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
[26] Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
Track Name: quo vadis
(John 21:18) (NIV 1984)
“[18] I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”
Track Name: prodigal
(Luke 15:21-24) (NIV 1984)
“[21] The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
[22] But the father said to his servants, 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.
[23] Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate.
[24] For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' So they began to celebrate.”
Track Name: motion sequence
(Matthew 12:43-45) (NIV 1984)
“[43] When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.
[44] Then it says, “I will return to the house I left.” When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order.
[45] Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
Track Name: turn aside
(Philippians 2:6-11) (NIV 1984)
“[6] Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
[7] but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
[8] And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross!
[9] Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
[10] that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
[11] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Track Name: weakness and reflections
(Luke 10:21) (NIV 1984)
“[21] At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure."”
Track Name: among souls
(John 15:18-21) (NIV 1984)
“[18] If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
[19] If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
[20] Remember the words I spoke to you: "No servant is greater than his master." If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
[21] They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.”
Track Name: own Way of the Cross
(Matthew 16:24-28) (NIV 1984)
“[24] Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
[25] For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
[26] What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
[27] For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.
[28] I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."”
Track Name: a precept
(Mark 16:14-18) (NIV 1984)
“[14] Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
[15] He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
[16] Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
[17] And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
[18] they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."”
Track Name: hope
(Titus 3:4-7) (NIV 1984)
“[4] But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
[5] he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
[6] whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
[7] so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
Track Name: this last day
(Luke 12:35-40) (NIV 1984)
“[35] Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,
[36] like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.
[37] It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.
[38] It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.
[39] But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
[40] You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
Track Name: His understanding none can fathom
(Isaiah 40:27-31) (NIV 1984)
“[27] Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God"?
[28] Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
[29] He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
[30] Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
[31] but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
