The Ghost Within: The Tale of Turmoil EP is the sixth EP by N Pa. A concept EP[1], It was released by FeelRec's sub-label, Arctic Mode and Ditto Music on December 9, 2013.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

It contains 5 tracks from the full length version of the album, excluding "The Beginning (Proglogue)", "Blistered", "The Battle (Interlude)". and "On The Inside"

BackgroundEdit

The album is about our main character Turmoil - which is a play-on-words. The story of the album is not about the death of the main character, but it is about the fight and uncertainty that is in all of us when we’re trying to move on when something tragic happens such as the loss of a loved one for example. The story goes in and out of the realms of the Reality and Lucid Dreams/nightmares that Turmoil experiences. The antagonists of the album are The Ghost Within (and his minions), and Melinda (who is unnamed throughout the album), Turmoil's lost love.

Concept
Edit

Description of the albums concept was revealed on N Pa's Tumblr along with summaries of the singles released.

"Devastated by the love of his life leaving him, Turmoil, finds himself drowning in a cesspool of depression and wanting out of his emotional roller coaster ride. The ghost within haunts his thoughts as he feels his grips on sanity slipping away. The listener gets taken on his journey through madness and back again. Join Turmoil in his process musically, and evolve as he does, and as the music progresses, so will he."
- written by Josh Wright
