About this album

On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax is the debut full length album by post-hardcore band Alesana. It was originally released on June 6, 2006 by Tragic Hero Records, but when the band joined Fearless Records, it was re-released on March 20, 2007 with two bonus tracks, four live videos, and an interview with the newer label. It holds many analogies to Greek Mythology and the Medieval ages. The title refers to the Greek myth concerning Icarus whose wax wings melted when he tried to reach the sun.

    the original artwork is the black one... not this. change it please. same goes for the ep. the yellow one with the girl is the right artwork. not the white/red one. they're all reissues including the green on frail artwork.

    anyone notice the allusions to mythology and the Trojan War? album refers to the story of Icarus and Daedalus. Ambrosia is based on the Greek legend of King Midas and the Golden Touch. Pathetic, Ordinary refers to the Greek legend of Hades' lust for Zeus' and Demeter's daughter Persephone, Alchemy Sounded Good At The Time, is based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. and so on...

    The counter for your "Emptiness" album doesn't work.
