about

My "official" debut album is finally here after being almost two years in the making.

This album tells stories of tragedy, despair, apocalyptic visions and death, all culminating in the inevitable downfall of mankind. Seers are plagued day and night by visions of the coming apocalypse and the world continues to degrade around them. Everyone desperately clings to life, hoping against hope that they may be able to continue on. But once the blood moon rises, there will be only one outcome to this story...

Track Name: The Blood Moon Rises
Civilization crumbles and is left in ruins
All light fades and only darkness remains
The ground is consumed by an ocean of blood
And up above, a blood-red moon shines

The visions haunt my every waking moment
Anchored deep in my brain, refusing to leave
In front of my eyes, a story unfolds
A story about the end of the world

Flesh is set aflame and the skin melts away
The walls crumble and the structures shatter
The air turns to poison and I struggle for breath
Fire spreads until we’re consumed in the inferno
The Earth is left a barren and lifeless wasteland
The sun dies out and leaves the world in darkness
The sea of blood stretches out to the horizon
And up above the dreaded blood moon shines

I cannot tell when the end will arrive
Or what happens after death is brought upon us
I cannot tell if there’s any way to save ourselves
Or if we are all destined to meet the same bloody fate
I cannot tell if the world will ever recover
Or if this is truly the end of all life
I cannot tell if there is any way to stop this
Or if we were all doomed from the very start

Every day the visions grow stronger
They’ll even haunt me deep in my sleep
I cannot tell the future from now
All I see are visions of death

I’ve grown desperate for a solution
A way to save all of my own kind
But it seems no matter how hard I try
We are all fated to meet our violent end

No matter how I try
The visions never fade
Our end is coming
The blood moon will rise

It’s too late for us now
Our path has been set
We cannot run anymore
It’s time for us to end
Our rage will burn the land
Our hate will blot the sun
Life will die around us
And we will go with them

There’s not much time left
Enjoy the life you have
Before your love fades
And your hate takes its place
Enjoy the life you have
Before you dig your graves
Before our fire burns
Before the blood moon rises
