Crossroads 07:17
Rampant are the storms Devious, these seas These forces we try to master Constant weakness to evade A strife against the inborn Nature of defeat Exposure to noxious elements The roads we blindly tread Solitary ruin Befalls me The dreaded steps From abandoned dreams Tired well Repeating stream The concept of escape It seems We soldier on An unknown path For passions and dreams No one shares What happens when legs grow weary? When life's crossroads are but woes to suffer? When I'm enclosed in my own mind The repeating echo of spinning thoughts A reflection in the window, what's there to see? A pale face, veil for vacant crowd A year of sorrows, here we stand No companion but smoldering remnants of dying dreams
Weathered by storms. dispossessed Broken down and once again whole Scars remain left, lucid ghosts of the past Lessons in failure, wandering free Distorted embers of a life once lived The delusions of hope, the brinks of despair Prosperous ambitions laid to rest The mephitic curse of incapacity Ghoul like silence The distant sound of whispers A sensation of shadows moving Through these empty halls Every new sensation An expected burden, a repeating pattern Steaming disappointments A collection of crosses to bear Remnants of my dying dreams Monuments of burning atrophy Remnants of my dying dreams Triumphant times, nothing but a memory Every twist, every turn of season Bearing tragedy and woe A destiny it seems To seek and never find
Darkening, the dead of night A distant shine of city lights These barren halls echo empty Sleep fails to come to my avail Reanimate these tiring movements An aimless masquerade Limbs react reluctantly Repeating events Worn down roads Familiar faces flock the pathways An infernal design Beneath the surface lingers An idle sense of desperation Procrastinations emerge Days mold into one Becomes a way of life Machine like motions that fill the day Sleep, a woeful concept As nightmares plague the hours Stare upon a ticking clock, a gloomy window The silence of a sleeping world Tomorrow's turmoil infecting the night A perpetual state of panic These nighttime revelations Abandoned dreams that haunt my sleep Ever present consternation Thoughts of past and future dread These nighttime revelations Abandoned dreams that haunt my sleep Ever-present consternation Avid companion of night Vacant eyes in clouded hibernation Collision course with a vibrant world Vexatious storms beyond the daily pace The affliction of the outcast Pervasive nothingness Erupting, eroding I wield and I havoc I stab and I scream As daylight arrives A continuing search For the ineffable Concept of escape


"There’s quite a bit of range and texture to the music, from somber clean guitars and hauntingly subdued vocals, to crushing chords and unhallowed growls. Check out the EP below, and make sure to follow the band, these guys have something good in the works."

The guitar and bass melodies are excellent, particularly as “Crossroads” comes to a close, and session drummer Mortuz does an admirable job in providing the backbone of the tracks.
