Dann 'the djentle giant' How come this band is not a big thing yet? It doesn't make any sense. The vocals are awesome, the guitar is tight, the drum is damn tight too and it's just a perfectly balanced blend of rock (I cannot classified it or make any comparison, 'cause they're quite unique). Well, listen to this, it's freaking good! Favorite track: The White Ship.

FDJ Imagine if you took elements of Opeth's prog metal blackness and mixed them with a little of Muse's alt rock complexity. Favorite track: The Tomb.

Track Name: The White Ship
I've nurtured this light
(For how long?)
I've abandoned sense of time
Was it petulant
To have galvanized that bird
In your throat
If it would only sing me home?
But, I'm not mad, I swear

I'll devour every single
Heathen on my trail
This Eden is mine to claim
Though I haven't found it yet
To the bottom I'll sink
With this cursed head of ivory

So brick by brick
I decorate this tower to transmit
That even if by death
So be it, the cost of all my ambitions
Am I reaching you?

With me, drift into the void
Below, watch light be destroyed
The abyss, into the abyss
Am I reaching you?
Track Name: The Temple
Dropped their mouths
Wide open with fear
Their spines were caught by the floor
It's not like we've never
Seen a dead body before
So what's one more

Like moths to the flame

Reanimated from the pieces of its mind
Being pulled into the rift
Have we become a colony of flies
Dropping dead hand in hand

Went for days
Always awake
Some thing betwixt sand and steel
It itched on my teeth
With a cosmic appeal
To reach into the dark

Like moths to the flame
Let them burn to ash

Reanimated from the pieces of its mind
Being pulled into the rift
Have we become a colony of flies
Dropping dead hand in hand

This is no graveyard that I've seen
The architecture escapes me
Drawn toward this temple in the sea
Like a moth drawn to the flame
