Condition Black
CONDITION BLACK — Full length 60:52 Label: Limb Music GmbH
Release date: October 21st, 2016 REVIEWS

1. Tidal  —  3:03

To create, one must first destroy

2. Condition Black  —  5:43

Time has lost control of me
Damned if I do or I don't
Lonely sailor, angry sea
Named by the will and the won't

Take a chance, spin the wheel, see what fortune may bring
Already I've plotted this lawless course; already I've lost everything

This is the last time
I'm looking back
My heart of darkness
Condition black

This is the last time
No going back
Bring on the raging storm
Condition black

Waves and braids, a crown of hair
I've deserted the islands of fraud
The midnight thunder rules the air
The surging pulse of a God

Love, hate, promises, those words have ravaged my soul
Casting away to the end of the world, before I'm too cold and too old

This is the last time
I'm looking back
My heart of darkness
Condition black

This is the last time
No going back
There's truth in those depths
Condition black

A thousand leagues of bloody tears
A thousand wretched lies
Brackish spirit, face the fears
With steely, salty eyes

This is the last time
I'm looking back
My heart of darkness
Condition black

This is the last time
No going back
Who dares win the howling winds
Condition black

3. Too Many Voices  —  5:03

My heart
Is facing an icestorm
My life
Is crashing down and I can't breathe
My mind
Is a raging thunderstorm
And you say
That I can't be what I need to be

All lies surround me now
I'm breaking through, I'm gonna show you how

Too many voices screaming on the wind
I'll sail away, you'll never catch me, catch me
Too many faces and it never ends
I'm going mad but you won't help me
Lose myself again

For truth
I gave my life to hold
For love
I cut myself down to the bone
I know
Sometimes I don't know where to go
Be gone
Leave me be, my path, my own

All words surround me now
I'm drowning here but I'll drown all you out

Too many voices screaming on the wind
I'll sail away, you'll never catch me, catch me
Too many faces and it never ends
I'm going mad but you won't help me
Lose myself again

You tell creation how much you're giving
You were born, but you're barely living
You stole the right, now you're on a mission
And I will never ever listen

Control
Virus inside the lifeline
Divide
Conquer on, a million to one
Greedy hands
Plunder every peace of mind
Your hate
Exposed, obsessed, and overdone

All gods of fear and doubt
I'm preaching loud, I shall cast you out

Too many voices screaming on the wind
I'll sail away, you'll never catch me, catch me
Too many faces and it never ends
I'm going mad but you won't help me
Lose myself again

Dictator
Directing the simpleton world
Too many voices
Peacemaker
Complacency replacing pearls
Too many voices

4. No World Order  —  7:54

Stare straight into the face of hate
They'll slay the monsters they create
Nobody free, nobody brave
All of your trust has been in vain

See how the blind now lead the blind
These apathetic wicked times
The law will plant you in your grave
The killing fields still need more slaves

You sell your body, mind, and soul
Sell-out religion, sell it all
You give them only what they want
Power and greed, you're on the run

We're the last ones in line
To put a number on our minds

No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!

Revolution now

Illuminated antiChrist
The price is higher than your life
The false are generals, kings, and priests
Holocaust bred by the beast

Under the flag of blood and steel
Enforcers forcing you to kneel
You don't, you won't, you can't say no
To mass media mind control

We're the last ones in line
We're leaving all behind

No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!

Revolution now

"Trust us!" demand the terrorists
Try on these chains, see if they fit
Tradition of elected lies
Horrors before consenting eyes

So question everything they say
When there's no will, there is a way
To stop the truth from being heard
And to assimilate the world

No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!
No! World! Order!

Revolution now

5. Cages We Create   — 8:40

Your world was ashen cold, I saw you there
Weeping with broken wings in frozen wind
I wrapped my arms around in achingness, despair
And all things changed to new, began again

That's how this dream would end if the dream was real
And only mournful echoes still remain
I've felt so much that I've nothing left to feel
The barren I inside has carved a god of pain

I don't want to see you in this place
I don't want to leave you in this state
I don't know what to do
Any more than I used to
We fell the castles we create

Don't turn around, don't let it end this way
Wounds from words need words to heal
I can't lose what I never had, why don't you stay
We're only as sick as the things we conceal

I don't want to see you in this place
I don't want to leave you in this state
We don't know what to do
Any more than we used to
Bound by the bonds we create

Just as harsh as I ever was
No compromise for anyone
I feel alive but far too late
Caught in some cage I create

Maybe in some other life we've found a safe escape
From these cages we create

...I'll throw away my tears
And harden back my heart
Withdraw, wear out, restart

6. Starseeker (The Mystery Of God)  —  4:54

The universe, forever
Counting down to never
Philosophies, the center of my mind

Ask the Earths what they know
Blowing where the wind blows
Solid ground, impossible to find

All I want to know is what the truth is
I believe the truth is what You are

Blocking out the starshine
Living through the worldmind
Hating all we're scared to understand

Tearing through the old ways
Summoning vehement waves
New horizons rise up through my hands

All I want to know is what the truth is
I believe the truth is what You are

Om sat chit, om sat chit

When there's nothing to say
Some might say I've said it all
When there's nothing to feel
But wonder why we're here at all

And when the old thoughts hinder us, we'll carve them off
Divinity, infinity, forge us of

All I want to know is what the truth is
I believe the truth is who You are

7. Interlude I: The Firmament  —  2:22

Om namah shivaya

8. As Above, So Below (Those Who From Heaven To Earth Came)  —  5:48

All eyes look to the sky
Search for a time long gone by
Whispers of secrets and strangeness pervading the air
Gazing deep into the ancient, your shadow is there

I've walked a life through the dark
The haunted, condemned, and the marked
I'll follow the lights to the top of the world and the wall
Glaring with fists to the heavens, now answer my call

As you are, so I am

Uriel
Lifeblood of mystery
A thundering symphony
The light that cannot bend

Uriel
What said could never be
The power within my dreams
Awaken this sleeper again

Throne of celestial fire
Born to seek planes ever higher
Your wings and your wheels burn the path that the weak fear to find
Nailed down to the cross of changes, this wisdom is mine

As above, so below

Uriel
Lifeblood of mystery
A thundering symphony
The light that cannot bend

Uriel
What said could never be
The power within my dreams
Awaken this sleeper again

Creation's starry rage
Life from another age
Up mystic stairs I climb
To sweep the dust of time

Uriel
Lifeblood of mystery
A thundering symphony
The light that cannot bend

Uriel
What said could never be
The power within my dreams
Awaken this sleeper again

As within, so without

9. Interlude II: The Dance Of Bliss  —  5:08

(instrumental)

10. The Morbid Architect (That Prison Of Veils)  —  5:21

Floods
Of bloody flesh
And gore
The physical
Holds the seeds of all damnation

When I parted the clouds
I met the ceiling of the air
When the world broke away
I heard a howling

Mason
Of trappings old
You see
Your hand alone
Your masterpiece: a crypt of sinning

When I ascend into dreams
I travel without moving
In empyreal realms
You hold no power

Invincible lord of sights
Impaled on the spear of Christ
Extinguish the flame of time
We die

Oh, ancient bastard
Your work has been defiled
We've razed this maze of matter
My heart is full of bile

This yoke is weighty
My shoulders break from labour
Long is the rope
You've woven for my collar

Slay reality
Slay existence
Slay the Architect
Slay the so-called gods

For you and this world inspire only death in me

11. Your Hand In Mine  —  7:02

Reach out to me
I reach out to you
Know this soul
See us through

In your eyes
I'm worlds away
To embrace
Forever stay

Within your hair
I'll shelter myself
Within my arms
There's nothing else

We dance in shadows
And dream through the days
I'll sing you a song
But I've so much to say

I've flown through fallen skies to hold your hand in mine
I've come through waves on oceans of time

I've ran through weary days to feel your lips to mine
I've touched the moon and sun
From this skyline

If there is love
I've found it here
One precious moment
To disappear

I've found in every star a mystery of everything
To be where I should stand I'll stand by anything

I've flown through fallen skies to hold your hand in mine
I've come through waves on oceans of time

I've ran through weary days to feel your lips to mine
I've touched the moon and sun
From this skyline

You change my heart
You spell my eyes
You show me God
Your hand in mine

 

Outsiders
OUTSIDERS — Full length 01:15:52 Label: Limb Music GmbH
Release date: February 28th, 2014 REVIEWS

1. Signals  —  2:56

Where would you go
Who would you be
What would you do
What would you see

On the outside?

2. Symphony in Black  —  7:07

I have been to the outer limits
Foreseen the worlds... deep inside myself
I once emerged, both dead and dreaming
Now I'm alive, a living story to tell

Black and blue, oceans of starlight
Under the ice, there is hope for me
Color my soul in shades of twilight
What God has given, what I was born to be

Black is the way - no turning back
Vomiting faiths from inside
Black is the way - no turning back
Legions of being will cry

A symphony, an angry symphony.. in black
Symphony, a vicious symphony.. in black

A symphony of victory.. in black

Lacerate the spiritually profane
Strung up in chains, hate has just begun
Caught between the sick and sensual
Torment and bliss, pruning me as one

Black is the way - no turning back
Pain's not as vile as it seems
Black is the way - no turning back
The deepest of sorrows will scream

A symphony, an angry symphony.. in black
Symphony, a vicious symphony.. in black

A symphony of victory.. in black

And there's no way to stop it now
I'm gonna ride the black light
With heart in hand I'll see you
On the other side of midnight

I will escape this worldly prison
Sacrifice to reach the other side
Divine consign with the Creator
I will leave the universe behind

Black is the way - no turning back
Hail to the end of all things
Black is the way - no turning back
Echoes of lifetimes will sing

A symphony, an angry symphony.. in black
Symphony, a vicious symphony.. in black

A symphony, exalting symphony.. in black
Symphony, a storming symphony.. in black

Symphony, I'm a symphony... in black

And there's no way to stop it now
I'm gonna ride the black light
With heart in hand I'll see you
On the other side of midnight

3. Undying Wings  —  6:34

We've got more scars than friends
Cut once and twice again
Life is a means to our end
And we don't mind at all

We've seen the orchids bloom
We ride the shapes of doom
And I remember you
Live now or wait to fall

Tonight
The time has come to ride
The greatest way to die
Long live the fighters

To fly
We're speeding in the night
A meaning so divine
Soar ever higher on

Undying wings

With broken hearts we muse
Exhumed, and reused
They think they've cut us loose
But we've come back for more

We speak the dead language
Consumed with tearful anguish
No sleep until the famished
Angrily, life is but a war

Tonight
The time has come to ride
The greatest way to die
Long live the fighters

To fly
We're speeding in the night
A meaning so divine
Soar ever higher on

Undying wings

Give, take, run, hide, hate - murder
Stand, scream, love, faith, bleed - believer

We've wasted too much time
Your soul as well as mine
Love always makes a crime
All hail the thistled crown

Fragile as we are fierce
Held down too many years
They stole too many tears
Hold on, we're going down

Tonight
The time has come to ride
The greatest way to die
Long live the fighters

To fly
We're speeding in the night
A meaning so divine
Soar ever higher on

Undying wings

4. Forever Young  —  7:55

What could I have done?
What should I have done?
You would rather run and
Leave me here

Time flies in a haze
Mocks our better days
I would rather stay, so
Leave me here

The golden years were yesterday
But I live my life in my own way
And I want to get things right

Forever young
Forever in time
Innocence and loss, don't ask what was the cost

Forever young
A spirit in the sky
Avenging all loss, with eyes watching God

Take me away

Regrets, I've had a few
Just the same as you
But too many to
Mention here

Joyful sleepless nights
Warm words in the light
Life was full of life
When you were here

The golden years were yesterday
I squandered everything away
But I have to make things right

Forever young
Forever in time
Innocence and loss, don't ask what was the cost

Forever young
A spirit in the sky
Avenging all loss, with eyes watching God
Take me away

The flame of youth
May we carry it up to the highest mountain
I'll be of use
Let me light up the way for a change in someone

Forever young
It's time to ride
Forever young
It's time to rise
Forever young
A freedom inside
Young...
Until I say goodbye

Forever young
Forever in time
Innocence and loss, don't ask what was the cost

Forever young
A spirit in the sky
Avenging all loss, with eyes watching God

5. Aria of the Waters   — 8:26

Feel the waters flow
Feel the ocean roar
It's a long way
To the rocks below
But I will sing a praise
I'm moving on

If it's my time to die
Know this
I'm sorry

If the waves take me in
Know this
I'm ready

Seek the face of God
Seek the only one
Seek the only son
Seek the truth of love

If it's time to expire
Know this
I love you

If the pulse takes me higher
Know this
The pain is through

I can't feel anymore...
My mercy's at my door..

Heed me no shelter
From the storm
Ashes to ashes
I've always been alone

Call down the rains now
Upon my face
Cold winds are calling
Transcend this place

Rain...fall
Rain...fall...down!

Hear my prayers..
Take me there
You are my air..

If it's my time to die
Know this
I'm sorry

If the waves take me in
Know this
I'm ready

If it's time to expire
Know this
I love you

If the pulse takes me higher
Know this
The pain is through

Seek the face of God.....

6. The Human Residue  —  7:36

A weather weary face
Hollow, sunken eyes
Lips that cannot kiss
Diseased from deep inside

A worn, abandoned place
A fortress made of lies
How did it come to this
One so horrified

They'll place themselves beside you
They'll brand themselves upon you
They'll see themselves unto you
Standing in line with lust in their eyes to possess you

With scar after scar
The things we choose to do
Please take me apart
From the human residue

Scar after scar
The things I couldn't do
I've ruined my heart
With human residue

A soul that's stretched and thin
A body filled with sin
The weakened voice within
Not again....no, not again

They'll put themselves inside you
They'll force themselves onto you
They'll make themselves to be you
Waiting in line with greed in their eyes to afflict you

With scar after scar
The things we choose to do
Please take me apart
From the human residue

Scar after scar
The things I couldn't do
I've ruined my heart
With human residue

I've thrown myself in misery
For the sake of normalcy
Move on, and on, and on and on
Feed the people's fallacy

The lake of flesh, the piercing burn
More filthy than it's dirt of birth
Swim the bliss forgiveness is
From the shores of pain on Earth

I can't hate more intense
We've impaled all continence
Objects draining objects
Collecting innocence

A regret is all I am
And regret is all I have
If I could go through time
I pine until the end

To touch, to know
To feel, deep inside

To have, to love
To hold, within the tide

To stave the thirst
To give so vast
To rule among, to share with none
To stay safe in a promise cast

To be the first
To be the last
To be the one, the past undone
To make love under stained glass

I cry, I die
I've cried a thousand times
I cry, I die
I've died a thousand times inside

Scar after scar after scar is all we do
Washing our spirits away with human residue

7. Dawn of the Dead  —  7:20

Doomsday is here, it's the dawn of the dead
Demons are inside their heads
There's no escape from the armies of death
But the light will prevail in the end -- in the end!

Beware the plague of walking corpses
Forged by Skull and Bones
Truth will guide us and our forces
To the holy Stone

See them suffer their diseases
Their unity is death
They believe in only nothing
They place themselves above the rest

The earth is dark, the stars outshine
We've ran out of time

Doomsday is here, it's the dawn of the dead
Demons are inside their heads
There's no escape from the armies of death
But the light will prevail in the end -- in the end!

Watch your back, they're coming for you
Tempting loss of life
God has said, that those who stay dead
Have forged their own demise

They will do with you what they please
Innocence destroyed
Sacrifice, or die on your knees
It's time to make a choice

The moon is high, with stars the crown
The sky is falling down

Doomsday is here, it's the dawn of the dead
Casting a shadow of sin
Theirs is a place where we don't dare to tread
But the light will prevail in the end
In the end

Bring the water to the gravesites
Give to those whom thirst
Burn those eyes and still they have sight
Lifted from the curse

By the blood, truth is within you
Resurrected life
By the blade, the dead will end you
But you're alive inside

With the dawn, comes the death of man
This is our last stand

Doomsday is here, it's the dawn of the dead
Demons are inside their heads
There's no escape from the armies of death
But the light will prevail in the end

Doomsday is here, it's the dawn of the dead
Casting a shadow of sin
Theirs is a place where we don't dare to tread
But the light will prevail in the end
In the end

8. The Alchemist  —  6:57

In death I rise!

I fight
To crush the phoenix,
To walk alone
To burn the bridges that bar my way

I live
To seek the truth and
Bring light upon it
I pray, be never led astray!

Seek and find, the way through the void
Break these astral chains
Now is time to conjure, destroy!
Magic, faith, and flames

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

I think
Therefore I hunger
I hang inverted
I see this world through different sight

It seems
Decree alone will
Claim this Stone, so
Forsake the real, chase what is right

Seek and find, the way through the void
Break these astral chains
Reveal the signs, illusions destroyed
Under acid rain

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

War and peace exists within me
The Elixir has been given to me
Pierce my flesh, now I fly
Into Orion's crystal eyes

Wisdom makes a deadly wraith
The truth shall crush your wretched faith

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

Pierce my flesh, now I fly
Into Orion's crystal eyes

9. Worlds of Conflict  —  21:01

i. Time

I'll be hiding till the end of days
What's the use of fighting for everything I hate
Trust and letting go are not my ways
But everyone gives up when everything's at stake

I was amazed that I couldn't change all that I managed to love
I was amazed when I turned my gaze to lies told below and above
A desert of sadness with every ear closed to the chime
I've been here before, I'm alone on the shore, awaiting the end of our time

Breathless, my heart was torn to pieces
Learning the truth about the ways of their kind
Noone to see me and I'm not wanted to be seen
Dead eyes are staring the living all blind

I am amazed, that You'd want to change, a world that hates the unknown
I am amazed that You'd want to save a world that won't care for it's own
A fire of madness with every truth twisted and twined
The dream is the door that I've waited for, to bring me escape from this time


ii. Outsiders

I am an outsider
I want more than life can give
Love inside needs love outside
A dying world needs life to live
They didn't listen, they didn't care
I hold on so tightly to those who aren't there
Disappointment scars tomorrow
In slumber lain, we dull this blade, of sorrow


iii. Astral Flesh

I am not alive
There is only I
Tunneling through time
Spiral, spirit, mind

Run, run, into the light
This world eludes my sight
Fly, fly, into the night
This world withers the light
Run, run, into the light
This world evades my sight
Fly, fly, into the night
This world withers the light


iv. On The Outside

Every time I screamed
They would turn away from me
Tell me what it means
When all the world is weakening
They can never dream
For their own awakening
Show us truth and we
Sing the song we always sing
Pain inside of me
Every day is deepening
Cold reality
Forces me into the sea
With silver cord and key
I'll return to be
Another day, another chance to bleed!
