Why is no one talking about this? Just one track alone had me pre-ordering.The atmosphere, coupled with energetic vocals, gives me high hopes for the rest of the album. This is weird, but I enjoy being able to hear the drums. (I used to play many moons ago.)  Keep it up!     

Buy this album, support the artist(s), and Izthmi, never sell yourself(s) short.

Track Name: A SHOUT THAT BURSTS THROUGH THE SILENCE OF UNMEANING
Our love
A short fall
Spilled from insurmountable heights

I have been brought here
Time and time again,
To follow my longings call.
A shout that bursts,
Through the silence of unmeaning.
To find you,
Betwixt the waves

I’m falling from you,
In the midst of what we hold.
No promise of will,
Can save us from growing old.

And we’ll sleep,
Through this dream.
To forsake,
The foreseen.

All of this has been decided,
Long before you were born.
Pass with care my patient lover,
From this life you will be torn.

I heard it from the birds,
In the hours of crawling dawn.
That what may be lost with the flesh,
Finds its way to return.

And we’ll stain our teeth,
In the reds of the fleeting sun.
An end in heat,
My bones ache beneath your love.
Track Name: THE ARROWS OF OUR WAYS
The stakes that lie before the grave
Tie our hands behind,
The flaking truths of man
And as we watch our roots decay
Sitting idly by,
We fail to understand.

How to fill the hole,
And embrace the heart
To shed the weight of autophagy.
Yet with a one-dimensional wisdom
We’d rebuke an infinite glory
Shrouding the light that’s faired all time

Below the shelter,
And above the heights
Of man’s guilded reach
We find a world disconnected

We’ve sown our seed in the spine of the earth
In an attempt to forge our own lines
Yet we’re treading past the point of return
Forming the unseen void

As the arrows of our ways sink beneath the skin,
The blood of our victims we find akin.
To ours to ours to our own

Then the blood flows
And we see ourselves for the first time
Why does the blood have to flow?
And stain the soul of the sum

We must abstain from the instigation
Before the air all life breathes
Is gone

To own
The world
Yet close
The door

We’ve sown our seed in the spine of the earth
Now we must erase the bold lines
In only peace may we return
To a world so warm

When love is the truth, it’s our light
The glowing gateway to the divine
