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 (Desert Psychlist) 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.

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?
The Temple 03:10
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
The Tomb 02:01
