Wxmaggot This is not typically the style of metal I go to daily, but this EP changes that for me. The vocals are amazing, the songwriting is spot on, and the guitar arrangements and solos are sublime. I cannot find anything negative to say about this other than I missed out on the CD. I cannot wait for the next release. Highly recommended! Favorite track: Given To Explore.

Nocturnal Stalker This is what happens, when you take some pretty worn-out styles, such as traditional metal, power metal and melodic death metal, and add a little progressive touch. Impressive work! Favorite track: The Wizard Falls.

Track Name: The Wizard Falls
Eyes are windows
round and round
the dreamer goes down
A conscience loses touch
and takes a safer distance
to observe and watch

Mirages dance in the heat
Distorted silhouettes
stand disfigured in the street

The wizard falls
victim to the twisting walls
of his own labyrinth of trust
with the trapped believers
that his cause is just

Passed surely be all his legislation
Magical are his words on change and regulation
But for all his power
he can’t see the ground
for the imminent rise of his tower

The wizard falls
victim to the twisting walls
of his own labyrinth of trust
with the trapped believers
that his cause is just

Now, rise
All may rise
and stare into his eyes
and listen as he speaks his heart
He speaks his heart
the night through
but still no one
can tell it isn’t true

And down before his tower lay
his dying fans
reaching out their hands
The Earth's revolution stops
and time dies
Alarm clocks wait for the sun to rise
Track Name: Hammer of Injustice
Ninety degrees I tilt back my head
The eye of the storm is up ahead
And the sky is black
as is the abyss
I don't know how to get us safely back

A spinning compass does not imply
where the hell that is

(The hammer of injustice)
How could I have known
(The hammer of injustice)
that we would be here alone?

There's nothing i
wouldn't trade in exchange
for this upcoming
liquid mountain range
From off its glistening crest
for what it's worth
we could get off this ship
and walk off the Earth

But a spinning compass
does not imply
where the hell that is

(The hammer of injustice)
How could I have known
(The hammer of injustice)
that we would be here alone?

I'm sorry
I know I was never
anyone to decide
to take you to sea
forever
and trust luck
to provide
Track Name: Given To Explore
If all this
is true to my eyes
I'm in for the ride tonight
and when my cries
call across the skies
that's a farewell
in its own right
We leave tonight

Strange it may seem
how out of breath this makes me
I’m fatally alone
in remembrance of home

where forced selection
assumes a life's construction

If all this
is true to my eyes
I'm in for the ride tonight
and when my cries
call across the skies
that's a farewell
in its own right
We leave tonight

Now we just run
in pursuit of the sun
But in dark’s descent the stars arise
and we shall meet
the travelers
of the lonesome fleet

If all this
is true to my eyes
I'm in for the ride tonight
and when my cries
call across the skies
that's a farewell
in its own right
We leave tonight

My memory is a guided tour
which every night I’m given to explore
I don’t recollect me
from the time of my prime
I just can’t recall
I see the ruins of my castle
reduced to gravel
But faint sounds still echo
from a distant wing
and seem to resemble
the voice of a king
Track Name: Frost
Now, for poison I can't drink
In any glass for which I've sent

("I'm worthy of the crime")
("I'm worthy of the crime")

I see a dead man's face sink
so we were all equal in the end

("I'm worthy of the crime")
("I'm worthy of the crime")

With a hundred pounds
the frost weighs down
Now, I have no view
Where ever new snow lies
I tread men down
into the ground

("I'm worthy of the crime")
("I'm worthy of the crime")

Finding its way under my skin
the snow shall find
I'm its next of kin
