Thanks for sharing your plans, Sam.

Based on the success of Delirium, I can hardly wait to hear the whole album.
Should be awesome.

I wonder about the copyright implications.
There are probably other themed albums based on published literature.
I wonder what the precedent is for such works.

If the author/publisher "owns" the seven names (especially as a group)
or the associated stories, there may be issues. Some of this depends on
whether you plan to sell your music or not.

I would hate to see you pour a year of your life into a landmark work
only to be met with a legal battle against powerful enemies.

On the other hand you would be famous.
Even bad press is press, as they say. lol

Good points Sketch. I don't plan on making any money. That's for sure. lol
I'm not sure about the copyright issues. Hopefully there won't be any. The songs were only inspired by these characters. And that is the truth.
I've never used anything written in the series in my lyrics, so it should be fine.
I might have to change the title from the Endless. That might be copyright.
But as far as the individual names, Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium, those words are so broad in there meaning. I should be fine.
