VulcanoO One of my favorites if not my favorite post BM album ! It's an introspective trip with mesmerizing clean vocals, some gorgeous instruments during what seems to be postrock parts. And of course some intense BM moments that are only here when they should be.
Overall, a meditative album for me that I love taking in the forest while walking with my dog. Waiting for the CD to arrive ! Favorite track: TRANCE VI: ETERNAL BURDEN.

Apocalypse Dude Atmospheric (neo)folk black as it`s best. Guitarwork is amazing and the clean vocals have something hypnotic to it. Favorite track: TRANCE III: ALIVE.

Christian Alvis You absolutely killed it on this album! Has the classic black metal feel but you branded it as your own. Makes for a unique album that has me totally addicted! Love the art as well. Absolutely smashed it! Favorite track: TRANCE III: ALIVE.

Show me where those mountains meet the sun Show me where those whispers are coming from Guide me to the place that you call home Guide me to the place where I belong Show us where those mountains meet the sun Show us where those whispers are coming from Guide us to the place that you call home Guide us to the place where we belong In the shadow of a tree as old as time where rivers lay to rest and oceans dry A voice without a source, without a name allays my pain that grew in the dark of my soul and drove me insane! The weight of the past comes undone by unspeakable force The self transcends my cure found in blistering storms I leave this place far behind a world of manipulation where empty words and lifeless eyes feed our degeneration! Just close your eyes and take my hand follow your heart! In the shadow of a tree as old as time where rivers lay to rest and oceans dry A voice without a source, without a name allays my pain that grew in the dark of my soul and drove me insane!

The sounds of whispers in the wind reclaim their long gone reign The songs of spirits in the air return to life I close my eyes to see the unseen, see the realms they hide I have learned that silence bears the wisdom of our time The secrets of integrity lie beyond the spoken word In the twilight of dawn old souls are dancing 'till the morning sun They opened their circles, invited are the chosen ones. Set yourself free, open your heart release the burden that tore you apart Break the chains of your misery in perpetuaty. The signs of shadows in the flames tell of yet unknown tales Sparks in the dark reveal their paintings in the sky I feel the presence of a force that dwells in hearts and minds My time has come to leave this world behind I can feel myself transcending In trance-like silence my soul flies I see my energies ascending Towards the endless open skies

I saw a light Deep at night Down by the riverside In search for answers I fought against the tide I lost myself Down by the riverside All hope was gone Until I felt that I wasn't alone! I feel alive I called darkness my home Shadows my friends Fear was my closest companion I saw the white in the eyes of demons Within the deepest tracts of my soul! Disconnected from the roots of the universe Deaf to the pulse of the earth Hope was a dream for the living And death a dream of my own! Now I see the light Down by the riverside It feels familiar, yet unknown to the eye It speaks to me, wordless yet so clear It speaks through me And saves me from my fear! I am alive!

Mother of justice please hold my hand In submissive reverence I bow my head Oh mother of vengeance forgive my flaws Forgive my nescience hear my confession, my remorse! Blind and motionless without a voice Illusive wellness Illusive choices With eyes wide open I did not see With my heart broken I did not breath Lead me out of darkness Release me from this madness I confess my weakness To redesign my consciousness I'll turn my decline into forces of unbound creation my will - my power - my strength fuels my desire to become the one I was meant to be the one I was afraid to be! I'll pay for my faults pay the price for bygone addictions my failures, my doubts and my flaws The search for forgiveness consumed my mind, a poisonous path that I leave behind! Mother of justice please hold my hand In submissive reverence I bow my head Oh mother of vengeance forgive my flaws Forgive my nescience hear my confession, my remorse!
5.
At my darkest I gaze at the stars Until the sky calls my name! A feverish trance asks my mind for a dance Between the dead and the living Down on my knees I aim at my chance To prove that this is not the end yet just the beginning! You feared darkness, so I fan the flame! You cursed silence, so come and hear my scream! You feared the unknown, the one you could become! You cursed the night, so let me be your sun! True light shines deep within. We are its source and enemy alike. A blaze in the eye speaks beyond language, a gleaming hope for the ones led astray! I once feared darkness but you shared your flame, without a word I found liberty I once cursed silence but you made me tame all doubts and voices in my head, the content of my elegies!

Open eyes Open minds Open hearts in darkest times Only fear Only death Only greed is what is left Open eyes Open minds Open hearts in darkest times Dare to see Dare to feel Dare to follow me! While the pulse of the earth drowns in the poisonous noise of manmade heritage, we are still slaves of those who built such destructive reality on our shoulders, yet with our silent support. A reality uprooted, isolated and disconnected from our surrounds. But arrogance, greed and the shameless ability to build empires on corpse-strewn ash does not exclude us from the laws and forces of nature. Mother nature doesn't forget. Mother nature doesn't forgive. In harmony we will harvest our seeds. In harmony we must return what was never ours. We are merely guests at this magical place; and that which was there long before us will also witness our departure.
