Dominick Archer Amazing I've listened to it so many times in just 2 days I just wish I could've gotten one of the cds. Favorite track: Malevolence.

Rey de la fosa Promising proper melodic death from Melbourne.

A bit boring after a while but a good debut if I ever seen one.

This album could be better but it's still eons better than what most modern "melodic death metal" bands play at the moment. Favorite track: The Fallen.
Peeps Bucket

Peeps Bucket Pure melo-death that sounds like it's straight out of early-mid 90s Sweden. Very good album - highly recommended for anybody into this style. Favorite track: Your Hell Awaits.

Track Name: Illogical
And the fires of your treachery
Burn within me
So the scars you left on my soul
Made me

Forget forgiveness I just want to end this
I vomit the thoughts up like roaches on roses
Poisoned my garden with tears of my angels
I’d give it all for this to end
Track Name: Your Hell Awaits
Draw nearer to me
This is the end

Swinging pendulum of metal strong
Draw nearer to me
This is the end and I will die
For what I believe

Behind your tainted cross
A slaughter for belief
Rotted away by greed
A power struggle for belief

Stretch and contort me
I will never believe

I’ll face your rack
Of wood or iron
Stretch and contort me
I will never believe in what you choose
To forcefully preach

Behind your tainted cross
A slaughter for belief
Rotted away by greed
A power struggle for belief

One in the same and never to change
I’m bending the light with a darkest of truths
Track Name: Ethereal
To have no known purpose
I am stuck between worlds
We all lose our senses
Made to be so pointless

You spent your whole life searching
For something not on this world
You always lose at your game
Indifferent it is still the same
You’re still the same

Now friends I tell you that there is a place of numbness
Without a beginning
Without end
Does this even matter if it’s all just inside your head?
There is no existence but that which we make
All equates to being less than a man-made fake

And does this seem so pointless to you?
And do you know where we are going to?

To have no known purpose
I am stuck between worlds
We all lose our senses
Made to be so pointless
Track Name: The Fallen
The ever changing tides, in the current of destiny
A swirling eddy of light, beside the torrent of darkness
So I shut my eyes, and plunge into my infernal fate
The Urdr brunnr is a mix, the Norns have painted me grey

Urdr let me learn, knowledge past
To grow from my faults and failures
Verdandi I ask for just decisions
So to lead my life, lead by visions

A clouded future, enter the Skuld
Teach to me foresight, to prevent this
Shrouded by my hate, the vile kindness
Coveted by dust and made to thrive

So now I make this decision
This is what I choose
A life of utter greyness
In place of being hopelessly used

Fallen, let the beast realise
I am the hatred inside
Track Name: Malevolence
Tear my flesh open
Feast upon my soul

Succubi take my pain, it’s yours
Make me a soldier of constant war
My darling angel my marble whore
We spilled blood upon their shore
Track Name: Thorns
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Blood Countess
I see that which you desire
Costs their essence
Your foul contemplation
To hold the night in your castle of cold
Drain the life of the pure ones

Deadly maiden
Let me inside

Your face, hatred its design,
Has claimed my mind,
My foul contemplation.
To drink the cup in the bleeding room old,
Your dark hair grasps my fingers.

Lady darkness,
Black lust arise.

The winds voice again
Whispers her name
Cachtice deliver me
To the women I feed

Your tender kisses of death
Upon the faces of young
Now my lips upon thine
Spawn the next of our kind

The winds voice again
Whispers her name
Cachtice deliver me
To the women I feed
Track Name: Idavol
A sea nation of time gone by
Warrior nation of land, sea, sky
They conquered lands great and small
Their pagan God stood proud and tall

To my forefathers I belong
Of these people I, I am one

Let us not forget our past: we, the out cast
Stare upon this lost land and reach fathers hand
Our untried fears soaked in blood, they fall curd in mud
Old words warn of thine wyrd of mine
