William Crispin Old school metal but does not sound like a re-tread. Good guitar work and excellent vocals. A bit mid-tempo for doom but not quite to groove metal. Favorite track: Astral Flames.

Track Name: The Triangle
Can you feel, the cold winds of steel, blowing through the sand and stone
Flight of the dove births the scream of your soul, proud and strong,
Your journey unfolds


As the daylight dies, and the dark will rise,
Feel the grip of fear, I must persevere,
As the daylight dies, and the dark will rise,
Feel the grip of fear, I must persevere
I must persevere, I must persevere, I must persevere,
All on my own


Howling wolves, the eyes of the night, the trial's begun,
By the first fall of night


Across the skies, a dawn breaking tide,
Warmth of the sun bringing hope to my eyes,
Whats before me, the mountains and trees, the wind in my hair,
The freedom to be


As the daylight dies, and the dark will rise,
Feel the grip of fear, I must persevere,
As the daylight dies, and the dark will rise,
Feel the grip of fear, I must persevere
I must persevere, I must persevere, I must persevere,
All on my own, On my own

True as the seas, we live our dreams,
Free as the wind, the one who dares,
Dares to win

You know I have seen, such adversity,
Yet I shall not fall, swearing my last oath
For I could have been, a bringer of sin,
But I chose my path, I walk as one with the land

Walk as one, when darkness comes,
Live your dreams, walk with me

True as the seas, we live our dreams,
Free as the wind, the one who dares, dares to live

The end I have seen, but was it a dream,
Could it be me, yeah?


Can you feel, the cold winds of steel, blowing through the sand and stone,
Flight of the dove births the scream of your soul, proud and strong,
Your journey unfolds

Walk as one, when darkness comes,
Live your dreams, die, die to be free

Across the skies, a dawn breaking tide,
Warmth of the sun bringing hope to my eyes,
Whats before me, the mountains and trees,
The wind in my hair, the freedom to be,
Live and you'll see


Walk as one, when darkness comes,
Live your dreams, walk with me,
The end I have seen...
Track Name: Astral Flames
Well I've seen the face of the future change
As the skies light up with the rise of the flames
Through a vessel of tomorrows gain
We embrace the thoughts of the ones who strayed

Ever so low, under the roots

Can you say that you feel the same?
As the ones with forgotten names?
Feel the fire through the wind and rain
As we ride through the astral planes
See the truth and prepare your brain
Fight your fear this ain’t all in vain
As we ride the flames
As we ride the flames

Present ties are left behind as we ride the flames
Future skies soar past our eyes on astral flames

If you feel the world wont hear your plight
At the end of your rope, with no hope in sight
Trip with me to that very tree
Climb inside, embrace the fire it'll set ya free
Up I go, into the unknown


Can you say that you feel the same?
As the ones with forgotten names?
Feel the fire through the wind and rain
As we ride through the astral planes
See the truth and prepare your brain
Fight your fear this aint all in vain
Time and space exist but not the same as they guide the way
As they guide our way

Since the sun did rise, grows the one so high
You'll never know
Astral rides through paths untried
Where will you go?
Track Name: Civilization Lost
None shall rise
All shall fall

In a time before light
When darkness ruled the skies
And the sea, and the land were as one
One mass, of earth
From the center it gave birth
To the first sign of life that we know

Oh the wood, it seems, lives eternally
But how could such entity grow?
Said the first who saw,
Its branches scratch the moon
This is sacred land now marooned
So they built, 'round the tree
And praised it endlessly
And hailed to the gods which they thought
Were the ones, from above
Who granted them the sun
This element known as the One




But the tree, you see, grows relentlessly
Draining all life from around
For the site, where it stood
This ancient tomb of wood
Houses the wayfaring void
It was meant to be, left peacefully
For death and destruction now toll
See the sign, the mark the flashes in the dark
This land must stay barren and lone

Now the roots, awake
The ground begins to shake
Their temples and halls start to fall
And the ones, who praised
Death calls out their names
A civilization now lost
Lost

The opening has formed
What is, this door?

None shall rise
All shall fall
Track Name: Seal the light
Oh after the fall, grows the crescent shaped door
Heed the warnings of old, none shall rise round the one
So deeply dark the hole, oh now where does it go
Hear the whispers of all, become so enthralled

Spirits I call
Oh carry me on
To the lands of the lost
Feel no heat or no cold
In these visions foretold
Now fire take hold

With its beckoning call, I'm drawn to the core
Unexplainable lull, can't shake it no more
I must know what it holds, this ancient world
Oh the shores I'll explore, I'll dread no more

All bearings are gone, where is here, where is now?
Astral visions gone wrong, where have I fallen from?
Time grips my soul, as I'm thrown through the void
Feel its foreboding call, feel the loss of control

I am no longer whole, as darkness takes toll, tearing into my soul

Is this bliss, is this hell, perjury or spells?
Is this bliss, is this hell, should I sleep or rebel?
This is bliss, this is hell, trickery or spells?
This is bliss, this is hell, in solitary I dwell

Seal the light to embrace what they've sown
Eyes of the one, I’ve seen unwritten tomes
Chasms of earth split with thunderous force
Punishment brought with unruly recourse
Never to rise and always to fall
Echoing screams now herald the new dawn
The black swan cries the future's forgone
Buried in time to repeat and live on

Never to learn are we doomed to repeat
The shackles of time are now chained to your fate
Beauty of land kept in tune with the tree
Exploited by men so voraciously
Leave it alone said the voice in my mind
As shadows fall and turn day into night
Gone are the days that we lived with crow
Carving our stones, oh we reap what we sow
For greed or for lust, oh we take over all
Deafened to sounds of the wood as it calls
Roots as the bones of the earth they now sprawl
Carving headstones for your funeral
