Andersmensch I discovered this Band while this album was on pre-order. The only song avalable was allready damn good but I was still not convinced. After the whole release I have to admit that there was absolut no reason for it.
This is a awesome melodic death metal album with a male and female vocalist who complement each other in a very harmonic way.
Blast it at least once through your speakers!

Track Name: Skymaster
This is dawn of a new beginning
Fists clenched tight, ready for battle
What we’ve lost will be found again
Horizons burning, we look up to the skies

Fallen as a stellar gift
Stronger than the gods
Clouds enkindling

Chorus:
All hope is gone, I scream at heavens
This is not yet the end!
Brothers and sisters moan, I howl
Truth will prevail!

Riding through fields of desperation
Celestial vault bleeds its sight
‘’We shall not surrender, we cannot fear’’
He said, voice cracking with thunder

Fallen as a stellar gift
Stronger than the gods
Clouds enkindling
All hope is gone, I scream at heavens
This is not yet the end!
Brothers and sisters moan, I howl
Truth will prevail!

Fallen as a stellar gift
Stronger than the gods
Clouds enkindling
All hope is gone, I scream at heavens
This is not yet the end!
Brothers and sisters moan, I howl
Truth will prevail!
Track Name: Kolossos
Crushing my hopes
Godlike marbled monster watches
Crawling in the dark
I want to break through
My bones are frail
I want to break you
Standing above!
He’ll tear me down* (growl)
Laying below!
I don’t stand a chance*

I am the son of a mountain
I will pick you up
I will break you down
If you dare to cross my path
Climbing up the hill
I can feel his strength
Nothing to lose in the end
What will happen was meant

Standing above!
He’ll crush me down * (growl)
Laying below!
Too late to surrender*

I am the son of a mountain
I will pick you up
I will break you down
If you dare to cross my path
Kolossòs! The earth has spoken!
To the sun you were reaching!
Kolossòs! The earth has shaken!
On the ground eternally, you’ll be laying!
Track Name: Let The Curtains Fall
Rising from the darkness
I scream and aim for light
My sentence has now ended
I run towards the flare
As they long for my suffering
I stand fearless
I’ll never be silent
For this’s my inception

Give me the arms to break
Free from this slumber
And I’ll fight for them
Give back what was stolen

As one, we will shatter his word
Let the curtain fall
Proud, as chaos rules the land
Let the curtain fall

Their cries muted our wounds
Blood as vengeance, a red flag
A deep growl broke our pride
The time has come

Give me the arms to break
Free from this slumber
And I’ll fight for them
Give back what was stolen
Chorus;
As one, we will shatter his word
Let the curtain fall
Proud, as chaos rules the land
Let the curtain fall

Strong! We’ll rise
Fearless! We’ll fight
Mighty! They’ll perish
They shall not tear us down

The path’s now cleared
Mourning has ceased
Off with their screams
They did not tear us down
Track Name: Pale
Great pestilence, I ride
Followed by lifeless carcasses
Nothing but chaos, destruction
Peace as our nemesis

As I dwell through their minds
Shaking as reach their skin
As I ooze from the skies
Souls burning in his name

Chorus:
Insidious and grand, masters of the end
Legions lead by my prophecies
Death and bleakness, as loyal soldiers
Only dust left, our reign has begun

My voice, the path of wreckage
Embracing sky’s paleness
Torture echoes endlessly
Shores of infection, my masterpiece

As I dwell through their minds
Shaking as reach their skin
As I ooze from the skies
Souls burning in his name

Chorus:
Insidious and grand, masters of the end
Legions lead by my prophecies
Death and bleakness, as loyal soldiers
Only dust left, our reign has begun

Plague chars through flesh
Disease doesn’t know pity
Mesmerized by my cold emptiness
Light has faded away

Chorus:
Insidious and grand, masters of the end
Legions lead by my prophecies
Death and bleakness, as loyal soldiers
Only dust left, our reign has begun
Track Name: Children of the Void
What once was our pride
Drowned us to deep sea
Our home
Became wreckage
Sailing through 7 seas
Destiny lies in our past

Cradled in this endless ocean
We are born to remember our faith

We are
The children of the void
We are
The fire bearers
We are
A spark in the darkness
We are
A dream through nightmares

Were the memories we wrote
Eulogies for the murderers?
Were the tales of my childhood
Lies to put me to sleep?
Our land was swallowed
Our souls forsaken
Knowledge as a distant tale
To keep us from obliterate

We are
The children of the void
We are
The fire bearers
We are
A spark in the darkness
We are
A dream through nightmares

We are
The children of the void
We are
The fire bearers
We are
A spark in the darkness
We are
A dream through nightmares

This no man’s land
We call home
Is nowhere to be found
But our plea
Lead by waves
Surely our shelter will come to us

We are
The children of the void
We are
The fire bearers
We are
A spark in the darkness
We are
A dream through nightmares
Track Name: Tyrants
They gathered
Secretly
Hatred is the food
Of the fool

Tyrants as leaders
Lead them to gloom
Despots too greedy to care
If they’d fall in their own doom

Divide and rule
They succeeded
Treacherous alliance, they created

Black clouds only show
Mischief, division
Split in their own accord
Rotten to the core

Their thirst for power
Fed the worms inside
Liberated the rats
Corruption couldn’t stay hidden

Tyrants as leaders
Lead them to gloom
Despots too greedy care
If they’d fall in their own doom

Denial
Killed their voices
Persecution
Brought them there

The queen was meant to fall
Her call for autocracy echoed
But as they reached to her
She howled louder than thunder

As she fell down the stairs
Of the podium she raised
The once muted screams
Were not to be pleased
‘TILL THEY MADE HER SEE HER BLOOD!

OHH MERCY!!!
FORGIVE ME!!!
A thousand nails.
A thousand lives to avenge!
NAILED TO THE GATES OF HELL!!
NAILED TO THE GATES OF HELL!!

NAILED TO THE GATES OF HELL!!
NAILED TO THE GATES OF HELL!!
Track Name: Where Mushrooms Grow
When darkness unfolds,
We wander, the way is reckless,
The path unsure
We must endure

Ashes in my hair
Endlessly lost in despair
Take my hand as we run, where kings have fallen

Chorus:
Fields of sorrow
Where mushrooms grow
All trees, all hollow
We reap what we sow

Fields of chaos
Where mushrooms grow
Fading as we cross
Forgetting what we know

This is a hopeless life
Sleepless nights, never ending
Thunder
We must endure

Ashes in my hair
Endlessly lost in despair
Take my hand as we run, where kings have fallen

Chorus

I gift you my twilight plea
for all what’s left here for me
I want you to see what I see

Chorus
Track Name: Bound by Stars
I cross my heart and promise you
Even a thousand miles away
I’ll keep your words within
Our faith safely shrouded

Now, as you set sails on black moon,
Oceans ignite in torment
Miserable shrieks, not loud enough to resound
In the meadows of your thoughts

On those restless nights, I watch
Milky silver lights irradiating
My frosted and bruised curves

His touches haunting me
His hands are carved in my skin
Our breaths as a symphony

Will we ever encounter
A tale so enchanting yet so tragic

Now, as you set sails on black moon,
Oceans ignite in torment
Miserable shrieks, not loud enough to resound
In the meadows of your thoughts

Two minds in different tongues
Bound by timeless answers
Two minds on different grounds
Bound by an everlasting flame
