Cauda Draconis consists of two parts:

Part II: The Star of Kliffoth

"The Closed Eye of Paradise" is an album that dealt with the mystical dark theme of Lucifer and his fallen angels, the true face of God, and the forthcoming battle.
Unfortunately, the recording, suffering from a bad production, was again not up to DRACONIAN's high standards and was not released before 2000, after the band had completed various improvements to the original recording.
