CharlieB This album tells a great story from beginning to end. Excellent vocals, superb drumming and epic guitar solos. Kudos to Nick for his genius behind this album. I look forward to more coming from this band. Favorite track: The Rebirth of Prometheus.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors Thanks to Dave Proger for the feed on this one. Excellent retro sound, with some 60's psych elements and an occult vibe. The female vocals reminds me at times of Hope Sandoval in her early years with Mazzy Star.

FDJ 60's psych influenced hard/stoner grooves fronted by a seriously good female vocalist who avoids the shouty blues clichés by going instead for smokey smooth and deliciously sweet! Favorite track: Curse of The Brocken.

Track Name: The Wendigo Cries Within My Soul
It cries within my soul
Body yes, but mind says no


Hear the call of the Wendigo
Piercing through my soul
Been so long since I’ve had food
And I lust for what I must not do

A welcoming feast
Though it’s spirit is unclean

It cries within my soul
Body yes, but mind says no

The beast has made me obsessed
With the thought of human flesh
That meal never satisfies
A burning hunger sits deep inside

The succulent taste
To eat a stranger’s face

Mid 8 (moaning)
Track Name: The Ghost of Lady Grey
Over the hills and through the woods
Where the blackberry bushes stood
Haunted by her everyday
When I thought she had gone away

Time has sent me back
Who made this curse, alack!

The ghost of lady grey
She goes and comes to stay

She makes me hide and she makes me run
She makes all life devoid of fun
She makes me think I wanna die
In this patch ‘neath an empty sky

Life has sent me back
Who made this curse, alack!

The ghost of lady grey
She goes and comes to stay

The ghost of lady grey
She goes and comes to stay
Track Name: Yellow
A goblin told me
‘Success is only
Built on the color green’

But, I’ve lived lonely,
With what he sold me.
And achromic in between

I’ve been looking for something
Rarer than any pearl
I’ve been looking for something
That could change my world

It’s Yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not what you have
It’s when you’re not sad

It’s yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not who you know,
It’s that they don’t go

God, you’ve made me,
Set me, strayed me,
On the path of the color blue

I’ve tried to fight it,
But in my mind it’s
All because of you

I’ve been begging for something
Can’t you hear my plight
I’ve been begging for something
That could change my life

It’s Yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not what you have
It’s when you’re not sad

It’s yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not who you know,
It’s that they don’t go
I’m in the pursuit of something that just ain’t
in the pursuit of something that just ain’t
in the pursuit of something that just ain’t
real

And It’s Yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not what you have
It’s when you’re not sad

It’s yellow,
Yellow,
It’s not who you know,
It’s that they don’t go

It’s yellow,
Yellow

It’s Yellow,
Yellow
Track Name: Pregnant With a Demon-Child
There’s a demon in my belly
There’s a suffering in my soul
I’ve got a life filled with worry
But no one else seems to know

And, it’s so hard to have a demon-child
Yes, it’s so hard to bear such weight
Oh, it’s s hard to have this worry child
Why couldn’t I have a simpler fate?

I stay home to try and please it
If feeds upon my greatest fears
And when the priest tried to save me
It simply would not disappear

And, it’s so hard to have a demon-child
Yes, it’s so hard to bear such weight
Oh, it’s s hard to have this worry child
Why couldn’t I have a simpler fate?

And, it’s so hard to have a demon-child
Yes, it’s so hard to bear such weight
Oh, it’s s hard to have this worry child
Why couldn’t I have a simpler fate?

And, it’s so hard to have a demon-child
Why couldn’t I have a simpler fate?
Track Name: The Rebirth of Prometheus
Crafting golems out of the wet and clay
One of the ancients alive in the modern day

With the flame
That old flame
Yes, the flame
I’ve got the flame!

Zeus regretted everything I made
So the fool, took all the flame away

Yes, I’ve made my mind,
What a waste of life
To not have what they lack
It’s a sacrifice,
But so worth the price,
Just for them to have the flame back
Track Name: Watch the Children Danse and Play
Put in a tow’r in exile from man
Watching as children sing and they dance
Under the tune of those Nordic fools
All while Fickleness rules

Watch the children dance and play
I can’t hear a single word they say
I sit from apart
From the wars they start
And the knights they hold in fame

See them learn how to lie
Wish they could see from up on high
See the world from a different point of view
Instead of the depth they do

Watch the children dance and play
I can’t hear a single word they say
I sit from apart
From the wars they start
And the knights they hold in fame

Watch the children dance and play
I can’t hear a single word they say
I sit from apart
From the wars they start
And the knights they hold in fame
Track Name: Hand in the Fire
I’ve got my hand in the fire
My heart in my hand
I’d give it all up for the fatherland

I was sent on a mission
To take down your king
I give all they say, and they say everything

Bodies are weak, I’m headstrong
Bravery for love is lifelong

And the fire, the fire, the fire
Makes me strong

I’ve made a mistake
But I’ll suffer the cost
My gains are much greater than the things I’ve lost

I return a hero
For what I’ve done
An extremity lost for an empire won

Bodies are weak, I’m headstrong
Bravery for love is lifelong
And the fire, the fire, the fire

SOLO

Bodies are weak, I’m headstrong
Bravery for love is lifelong

And the fire, the fire, the fire
Makes me strong
Track Name: The Giving of Blood
I saw the princess riding
Til’ the death of the sun
To the vampire’s castle
whom she said she loved

There among the moonlight
Trapped in a spell
She thinks she is in heaven
As she goes through hell



Remember when she used to
Live among the day?
See her skin grow paler
And her smile fade

With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood
With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood


I saw the princess dying
With the birth of the moon
People pray her curse be lifted
But don’t help her with her doom

A sickly shell that loves him,
A bat that couldn’t care,
Where is Morris with his knife,
To penetrate his lair?

I heard he wants her locked up
With him in his place,
She will stay forever
Just to pass away

With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood
With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood


Remember when she used to
Live among the day?
See her skin grow paler
And her smile fade

With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood
With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood
With the giving of
With the giving of
Blood
Track Name: Curse of The Brocken
He stood on the mountain in the mists of that wicked Brocken,
Witches scorched him with the fire, like Lucifer told them

Somewhere, someone could have altered his fate
But magic lured him to fall into sin,
Made him begin

A curse
A curse

Spellbound, he went down from the mountain, sick from what he had endured
Ignoring the chapel, he decides that, he should never be cured

Needing white magic that’s nowhere in sight
Instead he feels he’s one of the night,
He ruined his life with

Solo

Somewhere, someone could have altered his fate
But magic lured him to fall into sin,
Made him begin

A curse
A curse
Track Name: The Path
I watched as the stars crashed into the land,
The crimson rider has taken command,
Where is the love?
Where is man’s love?

I stood as the locusts filled up the sky,
Hypocrites squirming and starting to cry,
Where is the love?
Where is man’s love?

They’ve lost sight of the truth,
Forcing the world to be cruel
Egos have already skewed
The path

I saw a woman robed in the sun,
Then came a hydra to eat up her son,
Where is the love?
Where is man’s love?

I heard blaspheming from on the seashore,
Was it the beast or the people He scorned?
Where is the love,
Where is man’s love?

They’ve lost sight of the truth,
Forcing the world to be cruel
Egos have already skewed
The path

Why? Why? Why live in hate?
Why? Why? Why perpetuate pain?
Why? Why? Why?

I heard blaspheming from on the seashore,
Was it the beast or the people He scorned?
Where is the love,
Where is man’s love?
Track Name: The Flight and Fall of Icarus
I gave it a shot
For the freedom I sought
But the warnings were true

I was flying
I was flying
But I fell into the sea
I was flying

How I careened
Into the ocean so green
Was is worth the shot?

I was flying
I was flying
But I fell into the sea
I was flying
But I fell into the sea

When my bones wash up,
Could a sun bring me back to life?
