simfers Loving the songs (surprising no one), but not the production. The first two songs (this would be the title track and Tale of Twins, if you're keeping score at home) are recorded at a weirdly low volume that kinda robs them of their power. Then Moss is back to a normal volume, and Richard III is super soft again, although not as soft as the first two. Weird. None of this should dissuade anyone from getting this, as aside from that, this is fantastic work that only leaves me wanting more. Eagerly awaiting their next effort! Favorite track: Moss.

Tara Benner I'll be honest, following up their previous album I was a bit disappointed. Because there just aren't as many songs on this album. The quality is still metal as hell and fantastic, and the musical work is still headbanging, I just have to listen to the same songs over again a little more often. Favorite track: Richard III.

Track Name: Grey Maiden
Crystal eyes, all royal signfiers Brigands, stand straight in her gaze Charmed and elegant, bejewelled crone of emerald Hold up high! The sceptre of the grey maiden
Harrowing mistress of rain, grey maiden My haggard soul, had died so long ago
Off to fight, warriors of the whyte magic The path that she forsook, on her revenge we travelled Here to stately frey, like stags they are our prey Taking victory, with blackened hearts and evil ways
Oh, marked by the pharaohs at birth Slaking her thirst on the men of the earth Oh, sword of the ages will call when empires fall
Now we will swear the oath, now we will wear the skins We lay our steel and bone, right next to each, our kin
Track Name: Tale Of Twins
Soft sing the wind, Voice of the shore Murmuring tides, Chorus of the north Land of our birth, God-seed Ship striking waves, Sails cleave the sky Foreboding banner ,Fate comes to life Mail-clad hordes spell “doom” for the land we one knew
From rockiest shores, on shining seas astride Vengeful the swords, from guarded havens wide Battle-mists, painting the fields red For seer and kin, unjustly wed
Cold forest fettered, Exiled kin Wild the huntress, Death lies within Nine to the wolves in vain, Yet a hero remains
Bitter love, under stone Bred from vengeance, son of son Caverns dark, fearless ford Wield the blade that Odin made, under the stars
Dreadful the deeds, Of wolfskin encloaked Flames of revenge, By fathers are stoked Ember of rage hath, wrought, the death of an age
Track Name: Moss
I am your rightful possessor, I'm the waves that crash and unfurl from the sea Their sound reverberates, Throughout the halls of your dreams I vamp I sup all your energy, Directing your fate toward Any direction I please Please...
Perish the thought that I should die All the answers are painted lies My power is infinite Fate on high
Now give me your armour, Now give me your sword Bequeathed all your beasts of burden, But you broke your word And now you kneel, penitent!
And even after death, My power will still linger Your time is up, who will you face Whose ring adorns your finger
A power sleeps, infinite Beyond time
