"Does it please you now to travel far?",
she asked him through her sobbing.
On those native shores, he left a weeping heart,
sacrificing his love.
Like a storm in his mind-
what purpose and future
tied themselves to his life?
The star of his birth would guide him through
treacherous waves and currents.
Over the waters of underestimated ferocity,
he sought the oracle to tell him of his soul's destiny.
Trusting in himself that he would become the master of the sea.
Trusting in brothers that they would return home on the moon's second cycle.
"For a man driven by the preconceived notion
that his spirit's origin grants him any fulfillment in life,
so foolish he has become; leaving all that he has, only to prove
he was never so sure of any notion at all."
Upon first nightfall, the sea begins to whiten.
Thundering roars swell in the air.
Lowering the yards, closing reef to all sails,
the weight of fear has struck his heart.
Absent of his faith, the Gods are mighty now.
The ocean sprays the clouds.
Pulled into the depths,
he is staring at heaven from below this infernal pool.
The wreckage of the vessel
serves as a graveyard to him.
He cannot see beyond the
pitch black clouds above.
He whispers only one name,
she feels a pain her chest.
Thoughts racing as time slows down,
hope drifting with him.
Waves echoing his last words
send dark vibrations to land,
where she offers appeasement
to enraged eastern
Both her eyes and his lungs
have filled themselves with water
and quiver as they're straining to
feel love once more.
"Lucifer, father, what have I done? Was my fate just a tragedy?"
When you enter the blue hell, you are frozen, unable to get out. That ability that this album has to catch you and not let you go is what I applaud the most about this band. One more life experience, but an ordinary experience, an atmospheric and depressing journey, difficult to forget. Frank Román
“Iris” is one of those albums that pulls out all the stops and when it isn’t blurring the lines of multiple genres, it’s setting down stalwart ramparts firmly within one or another. An album that plays out like The Heroes Journey- an arc of inner turmoil, exterior conflict, a test of mettle on all fronts as you make your way in the world toward your one true destiny and stand at the gates with an open heart and all of the world at your back. justanoldgod
a punishingly heavy, yet startlingly soulful album. “beaten” chugs from start to finish and reaches a harrowing crescendo; brendan’s “I AM FREE” reverberates around in my dreams. the cover of “no dreaming” had my jaw on the floor the first time i heard it. but “relent?” the entire runtime of this song, i’m compelled by some otherworldly force to scream my soul out right along to the lyrics. not to mention the incredible riffs; the choruses remind me of a blackened ulcerate, e milesmccollough
