about

This EP is the first published record we did at the end of 2008.
It represents the roots of the band as a prog-metal artist.
The lineup of the band was a different back then, and without an actual keyboardist, the sound on this record is far more earthed and guitar-focussed than what we do today.

about

Awaiting Dawn Frankfurt, Germany

Fresh Progressive Metal/Rock from Germany in an exciting mixture:
Sometimes very heavy and powerful, sometimes rather calm, thoughtful and dreamy - always innovative and full of emotions, honesty and affecting melancholy.
All this embedded in a frame of progressive and virtuosic instrumental parts with lots of groove meeting catchy vocals between introverted sensibilty and extroverted aggression.

Track Name: In The Absence Of Hope
Floating through black and blue spaces
Feeling so light and so weightless
Being alone in my own universe
Feeding the empty
The dark and bitter curse

My skin so fragile, my skin so cold
I feel like shattering into sparkling pieces
Searching for the last remaining light
With my soul′s overwhelming night

I′m falling endlessly
Awaiting the crash
The sound of my glassy bones
The impact on icy stones

All that pain released in one glorious moment
All that agony burned away and left me crumbled to dust

Floating through black and blue spaces
Feeling so light and so weightless
Still being alone in my own universe
I fed the empty
The dark and bitter curse

All that pain released in one glorious moment
All that agony burned away and left me crumbled to dust

Motionless I lie, breathing delicious air
Frozen tears on my cheek and I′m watching
Vast skies, reflections of the moon
Upon clear flowing water
I let my soul float down this river

Been falling endlessly
Awaiting the crash
The sound of my glassy bones
The impact on icy stones

All that pain released in one glorious moment
All that agony burned away and left me crumbled to dust
Track Name: No Morning After
Returning home as always
I don’t think of evil things
Life is passing by in silence
Only peace, not any sin

Another time the earth has turned
But one day surely comes
When heaven darkens, bombs are falling,
And frozen is the sun

Reckless lives we lived since ever
Indifference in our minds
Eternally expected pleasure and constant wealth
It ends when no one minds
The crawling threat

We need to get awake
The habits let us break
We’ll be erased when nothing’s ever changed
Now see the ignorance
And can you hear their laughter?
For those who don’t believe
Will be no morning after

They don’t ever want to hear cause
All things would be right
When they kept living on in wealth
A life, amazing bright

Gloomy dreams I had tonight
Revealing me the truth
Holes of wounds, a million skulls
Our life we’re going to lose

Reckless lives we lived since ever
Indifference in our minds
Eternally expected pleasure and constant wealth
It ends when no one minds
The crawling threat

We need to get awake
The habits let us break
We’ll be erased when nothing’s ever changed
Now see the ignorance
And can you hear their laughter?
For those who don’t believe
Will be no morning after
Track Name: Oath Of Insanity
A nasty sound of his cell phone
Just rubbish on her TV
You cannot tell what´s their fashion
Pricey rags as it seems

Father´s paid his new laptop
Mother drives to where she wants
But they indulge in diversion
Downing booze all day long

Nothing ever could have harmed you
Nothing ever could have failed
First of all be satisfaction
And no thought on changing days

And soon you must face
A new time that dawns now
Where nothing is left but reality
Your sins and your sloth
Will take their revenge now on you
As an oath of insanity

He doesn´t need any true friends
For there are pills to survive
She only counts on diversion
Another lover each night

And school has failed to instruct them
For they don´t care what will be
When noone pays their subsistence
They´ll have to meet poverty

Nothing ever has impressed you
Nothing ever could have spurred
Contemplation of the future
Still no thought on changing days

And soon you must face
A new time that dawns now
Where nothing is left but reality
Your sins and your sloth
Will take their revenge now on you
As an oath of insanity
