Colin M. I don't know what exactly took me so long to get this. The riffs alone are well worth more than the price of admission, and the drums and bass have a great thunder to them that really resonates in your gut. Favorite track: Feed the Pyre.

Amanda Capps Brilliant Doom blues from the U.K, think Sabbth musically with some excellent vocals with a pinch of psych in there. This is a must have release!!! Favorite track: Wasted Landscapes.

Track Name: Arms to the Sky
In the temple of the sun
Peace and tranquillity
Into the river their blood runs
And for the master their lives burn

Death turns the key
Those that lie will walk free

In the valley of the kings
They light a torch to lead the blind
Raise your arms to the sky
The last to learn, the first to die
Track Name: Feed the Pyre
Too late for you
I tried so hard
The fire burning bright
Black smoke rise higher

Turn back the time
I'm right beside you
The night comes creeping in
My hate a flower

You left so crazed and cold
So blind and so old
The fire smoulders now
I feed the pyre
Track Name: Wasted Landscapes
No place left
Nowhere to go
Wasted landscapes
I don't know where to turn
You lead me down there
The trail ran dry
No point screaming
Don't even try

There's one thing for you
That I know for sure
Broken reasons
For what you do there ain't no cure
You made it happen
The sky will burn
You point the finger
We know you lie
Track Name: Ruins on the Shore
Hold on to the side
The ropes swing to and fro, I've let go
In towards the shore, the lights of torches burn and glow
And the Gods they yearn
To test us once again, I know

How strange to feel at home,
Among the ash and ruins of war,
The signs and symbols of such primitive designs, I've found
Lost eyes and souls, they must learn our way or die
