about

A dark, sick groovy journey through the woods of your mind. Follow the adventure of your soul being trapped, transformed and paralyzed by the reflections of a changing woods, partake in the creation of everything, rediscover yourself and find your place in the cosmic stream that dominates this forest. Take a glimpse at your past, then let the wind lifts you and fly again as a mighty bird of prey outside the boundaries of time and back into your life.

"The songs are dynamic, they move, they cross genre boundaries, but they have a kind of orderliness to their structures and care in their craftsmanship that make them work — and they’re all really memorable. It truly is astonishing that this is all the work of just one man, so good are all the instrumental performances" - NO CLEAN SINGING

Track Name: These woods are make believe
instrumental
Track Name: He sank into the scented undergrowth
Here I am canceled
primal fears resurface
vivid colors, brightening lights
sharp senses bleeding

Spasmodic breathing
blurred and freezing cold
into the scented undergrowth I sank
resting we’ll see
a sudden clarity
starting it all
I glimpse the fall
but no end awaiting

I partake in the all
my world has been turned
upside down
lying down I let the forest abuses me
lying down I let the forest - transforming

Spasmodic breathing
blurred and freezing cold
into the scented undergrowth I sank
resting we’ll see
a sudden clarity
starting it all
I glimpse the fall
but no end awaiting
soon you’ll be yourself
loosing what you had, again
Track Name: Ashen blaze
In a frozen garden
an icy mountain field
I will lay down
crossbones

I touch myself
I touch the stars
unending boundless
void of darkness
(I touch the stars)
the skeletal remains
of my past and future mistakes
(I touch the stars)
once and for all

I come to the trees
a perennial tension to the infinite
Iistening to the mute reproach
of silence

The lost perspective of the all-seeing eye
that floats around my conscience
snapshot a picture three days forward in time
and every stream will flow backwards

I touch myself
I touch the stars
unending boundless
void of darkness
an ashen blaze
Track Name: And so she wanders
How long has it been?
perceptions were canceled
by the weight of the green
replaced by nausea
I will flow with the flow of time

I slipped on my thoughts
and now I fall, I'm rolling with the stream
that dominates this forest
she expresses herself
in such different ways
Track Name: A graveyard of stars
I’m paralyzed by the reflections of the wood
everything around me blaze with life
with the blossoms breath, drips the essence of tomorrow
I will guard her life, I’m holding to her light

By the frozen temple’s light
chasing lost in memories
I reconcile
am I alive?
feeling I was born
a thousand years ago

Yet the thin texture of death hovers
tired, in the ashes warmth of the undergrowth
thick is the air, such as my despair
I’m breathing dust covering my lungs
covering my lungs

By the frozen temple’s light
I have drown my sorrow
in the joy of love
am I alone?
feeling I was born
a thousand years ago
Track Name: Engraved stones
instrumental
Track Name: Weeping Hermione
And the air here smells like a lost childhood
spent aligning sticks by the seaside
burning wet matches as our life fades
into the embrace of an ember dawn

My molt is ready
the disgusting shell that binds me
falls crashing as a broken glass
it continues to reflect
echoes of a past that I reject
while everything rejoices in light

Frost - fragrant and moist
already rising in spirals of smoke
a ritualistic dance of grace
I’m lost in its embrace
The race of tomorrow
will dance at his own pace
my roots penetrate
deep into the memories of yesterday
my branches stretching out
toward the newborn sun
and after all I see
my corpse is rotting down below
I’m flashing lights upon the sky
Track Name: Bird of prey
The geometry of flight
of ashen birds
retrace the chaos buried in me
reflects my shadows
flying in unreadable vortexes

The geometry of flight
of birds of prey above me
reconnects myself
to the element from wich I had been torn
once again I feel
the wind that lifts me
I fly
