Deej I know what an eargasm is like, crazy, landmines just started it right out and it kept rolling...more Australian prog and an instant favorite. Digging back through this bands earlier sounds this is certainly the preferable sound for my taste, I'm not a big fan of scream and there isn't much on this one, the guy has a great voice and range, let it fly high. Favorite track: Landmines.

Adedamola Adeniyi Awesome album by a bunch of guys who have been in the prog metal game for a while. Just beautiful, soulful clean vocals and mellow guitar playing.. I'd say go out and get it! Favorite track: Landmines.

Landmines 07:40
I know why I’m here now See the signs Let my own fate find me Stars aligned To blink is to miss our chance at the world Mankind an abyss, into which we might fall And so on and on, on and on we toil Our fantasies collide, leading us to spoil All our plans are foiled Searching for the promised land But my feet stuck in the sand No surrender, can’t withdraw Relief appears upon my sword Should I fall upon my sword? And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down As we rise up, I must fall Time and again I must fight for the cause Lines stretch and they tear Will I be overthrown? And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down As we rise up, I must fall The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow This muted melody is falling on deaf ears now Landmines reside under the path that I’m consigned Will I come undone? Thorn vines entwined around the neck to foil my cries Silent in this war And I’ll be sober now, there’s no four leaf clover Can’t see through windows made of gold So un-blind The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow This muted melody, the call for clemency’s vetoed The writings on the wall, it’s time for me to fall, let go The fable we were fed, the pathway only led, to finding this fool’s gold Don’t know why I’m here now See false signs Fate will never find me Stars maligned I don’t know why

You know my name You know my name, I heard you calling me Out again I know your game I know your game, the etiquette I break The rules of play We are the same We are the same, though you could never tell Through all the walls you’re making Free to hate you Free to berate you This conscience won’t be controlled What if I wonder? What if I ponder? What if we wonder? Would we still feel these chains constrain? All I know Is all I’ve ever shown And I won’t concede The need to be free It’s a dead man’s walk And though dead men cannot talk We won’t feel your shame We won’t play your game Everything in one hand Can be broken by the other And every blow that you land Will be worn as a badge of honour Free to hate you Free to berate you This conscience won’t be controlled What if I wonder? What if I ponder? What if we wonder? We’ll light this fire you can’t control After all, this fire you can’t control This fire you can’t control

Grind it down Blank canvas it calls me, keeps drawing me to the heat Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct Outpour my soul and surrender it all to you Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct But the edge that I sharpened, made it the target You blunted it and then cut my heart out Dreams of the undefiled To be unobscured I’ll hold this pure But I am the sanitised And the well flows To dilute my soul again Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct On top of the world, but the world falls away I’ll light up the dark, then you paint it with grey, but I’ll stay But this moth is drawn in, the flame is calling me back again Though wings are charred again I’ll fly into the fire Now Scrutinise Bastardised Its finalised Idolised Dreams of the undefiled To be unobscured I’ll hold this pure But I am the sanitised And the well flows To dilute my soul again Grind it down Dilute, dissolve, deconstruct

Soldiers 04:48
Hold on the curtain's coming down on all I thought i knew Played by the rules, but rulers choose the ones they abide to Swim against the current, across the grain and follow through It’s time to take the gloves off, free the storm we held onto Stand tall, Fall in line We are soldiers (fall in line) And we’ll fight in the fields (fall in line) Make them smoulder (fall in line) ‘Til we turn the tide (fall in line) We won’t tire (fall in line) Tormented is the soul that feels and Burdened is the mind that reasons So ask yourself ‘cause no one else can tell you what is right, what is wrong So no one cares, do not despair, it is the choice that makes you strong So go alone and throw your stone, release the hate you held so long Your child is lost, but that’s the cost, this justice isn’t meant for us Stand tall, Fall in line We are soldiers (fall in line) And we’ll fight in the fields (fall in line) Make them smoulder (fall in line) ‘Til we turn the tide (fall in line) We won’t tire (fall in line)

Symbiotic 06:17
Pure of heart, Pure of soul Without sense of self control One fear to be left alone Don’t regret what is done Don’t fear it, let’s just run I’ll adore you like a son Seeds never sown Through seasons they hold on ‘Til blossom breaks through And far-fetched comes true Here we are, now it starts The story of two hearts I don’t want to know the ending Once I was abandoned, alone and disenchanted You came and filled the emptiness And I’ll never forget your face Seeds never sown Through seasons they hold on ‘Til blossom breaks through And far-fetched comes true From stars we are created By stars we are dictated With our chances understated The bond we shared was fated Your candle burns Now light returns So bright your glow This heart’s on show But brightest flames burn quickest You’re riddled with this sickness Facing your transcendence I fear my independence I am reaching out Sense your leaving soon Reaching out Can’t hold on to you Seeds never sown Through seasons they hold on ‘Til blossom breaks through And far-fetched comes true From stars we are created By stars we are dictated With our chances understated The bond we shared was fated

Tides 04:54
See the signs Sown throughout the gulf of time The sway of tides The clock within us synchronised We are drawn To the siren’s song Take us with the waves Reflections on This flowing surface mesmerise Shards of light Beneath them our oasis lies We are drawn To the siren’s song Take us with the waves With our backs turned we cast away But this throw, we can’t let go Though we might feel lost The albatross still flies with us See the signs Sown throughout the gulf of time The sway of tides The clock within us synchronised We are born Singing siren’s songs Taken with the waves

Time after time We tell the same old lies For we move mountains Deluded eyes Can’t see the certain truth For it is blinding Behind the guise We are nothing more Than carnal senses We own the night We own the darkest light Where dreams are broken We must go into the dark to see We must fall down from this throne to free When the world spins in silence know That our story is told No more words will be spoken Left unseen, seeds will grow For all our vanity was just a bluff As we contemplate our worth I look to death for a rebirth Won’t the devil burn us down? Or god bring floods so we may drown Into the breeze, sow the disease Without cancer there’s no cure Under the sun, as it was once Again soon it will be We will find this throne was just a fantasy When the world spins in silence know That our story is told No more words will be spoken Left unseen, seeds will grow For all our vanity was just a bluff I hate what we’ve become Search for the smoking gun I hate what we’ve become Hate you, hate me, hate all of us

The Shepherd 06:34
Stone the true believers Belief just leads to violence And I condemn this shear brutality And they’ll take what they’re given And swallow it like poison Surrender to this new normality You’ll never be free Why are you all so cold? And why are all your eyes closed? ‘Cause I can’t fight this battle on my own We steal the sun We worship the undone The world is in my arms Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom While I weep for better days All the sheep have fallen to the wolves But the shepherd will never yield Angels, without wings will fall With starlight we must find our own direction My halo, with its pure white glow This burden may soon choose to defeat me It’ll beat me My hatred, of this show Is growing as the curtain disappears, it disappears We steal the sun We worship the undone The world is in my arms Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom While I weep for better days All the sheep have fallen to the wolves But the shepherd will never yield I can see no tomorrow I can feel no rebirth Though we’re drowning in sorrow We believe the air is worse Fall asleep and taste the endless freedom While I weep for better days All the sheep have fallen to the wolves But the shepherd will never yield

Mara 05:53
I walk on hot coals again And wait for this reality to fade The fear of losing Denies me choosing a future One without you When you’re already gone But we will meet again When Mara does descend And we will meet again I creep through reality No one can see what I hold in me Now light is fading The heart starts racing And soon these gates will open As eyelids close I’m calling you, I’m calling collect on the line I cling to the sublime I’m feeling you, I’m feeling you through the unknown I’m bleeding this dry stone I’m holding you, holding you throughout the night We’ll hide from the first light And fall into, into the ether we’re bound In dreams the lost are found I know, this is not alright But I show, nothing to the light We get, but one chance And I failed, so blind me from the light I’m calling you, I’m calling collect on the line I cling to the sublime I’m feeling you, I’m feeling you through the unknown I’m bleeding this dry stone I’m holding you, holding you throughout the night We’ll hide from the first light And fall into, into the ether we’re bound In dreams the lost are found Dream sublime
10.
I sit and stare as I breathe in the despair The time has come for life’s reflection My plunders done, collected In my head, the words I should have said But lips held tight by my intentions When souls are for sale, cash in The sun falls fast this evening I grasp the final flickering The hues of gold, I craved so long Comfort no more, bring comfort no more My poisoned bones, will soon be turned to stone My head held high, has fallen The hues of gold, comfort me no more As I begin to see This vision disappears Now I can finally hear This chorus turns to sneers We arrive with nothing And with nothing we depart The sun falls fast this evening I grasp the final flickering The hues of gold, I craved so long Comfort no more, bring comfort no more
