Aesma Daeva's first released recording Here Lies One Whose Name Was Written In Water is, for all intents and purposes, an experimental symphonic metal album released from the original three collaborators. The recording itself is separated into three parts.

Part One "A Quiet Chamber Kept for Thee" is anything but quiet, these are Aesma Daeva's hardest four songs on the CD, melding together grinding guitars, staccato bass drums, and otherworldly vocals into some of the most original metal music available at the time.

Part Two "Here Lies One Whose Name Was Written In Water" represents an experimental diversion from Part One. Chanting, acoustic guitar work, and subdued melodies - a large jump from the adrenaline pumped first section. "When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be" is the musical interpretation of lyrics originally penned by the long dead, and long revered poet John Keats (as are the lyrics in "Sanctus").

Part Three really includes two bonus tracks which are re-arrangements of the song "Downvain."
