GeN2Mo While the sheer hit-density may be lower than on "Ratocracy", "Revolt" still walks strong as another creative step forward. With additonal variety in elements, composition and styles of songs, and a little more emphasis on the subtle folk touches, the album emanates a certain gravitas. Feels a lot like it tells a meaningful story. Favorite track: Revolt.

Aaron Chisholm So many different styles of playing going on in this album, and that's what makes it great. Apart from the fact this is all done solo ;) Favorite track: On The Wings Of The Wind.

Eric Hoyt Arsafes is always incredible, and that's that. His sound is evolving a bit, and this album isn't QUITE as relentlessly heavy as his previous ones, but believe me... it'll get your heart pumping. There are some serious crushers in "Revolt." Favorite track: Sanguine Saints.

Track Name: Fly Away
Instrumental
Track Name: On The Wings Of The Wind
all creatures of the night
shall walk away from me cause
i illuminate the sky
my fire burns away your fear
and puts it on its knees
leaving your demons to die

as i look back again
i see the crooked life
of the mob under layers of sin.
those who shall take my hand
will be finally free!
we'll fly away on the wings of the wind!

i came to tear your shackles down
i came to set you free cause
you dared to open your eyes
the slave became the master
of it's destiny
the slave shall finally rise

as i look back again
i see the crooked life
of the mob under layers of sin.
those who shall take my hand
will be finally free!
we'll fly away on the wings of the wind!

Улетай на крыльях ветра
Ты в край родной, родная песня наша,
Туда, где мы тебя свободно пели,
Где было так привольно нам с тобою.

just believe in what you see
believe in what you feel
i know that we are free
i know that this is real

just believe in what you see
believe in what you feel
together we are free
our destiny's revealed

as i look back again
i see the crooked life
of the mob under layers of sin.
those who shall take my hand
will be finally free!
we'll fly away on the wings of the wind!

Улетай на крыльях ветра
Ты в край родной, родная песня наша,
Туда, где мы тебя свободно пели,
Где было так привольно нам с тобою.
Track Name: FYA
goddamn this rainy season
goddamn the fucking score
goddamn this unintentional
state of war
i have no fucking reason
to see this clownery three-dimensional
so on your mark, get set and fuck you all!

no compromise,
no submission to the bastards' reign!
i realise
i'm the master of this bloody game!
fuck you all!
fuck you all!
i will never kneel before the world!
fuck you all!
fuck you all!
i will never fall!

goddamn the propoganda
goddamn the exchange rate
goddamn my permanently
fucked up state!
time's praying for a scandal
in the toxic world of social surgery
so here's the antidote - fuck you all!

no compromise,
no submission to the bastards' reign!
i realise
i'm the master of this bloody game!
fuck you all!
fuck you all!
i will never kneel before the world!
fuck you all!
fuck you all!
i will never fall!

fuck you all!

no compromise,
no submission to the bastards' reign!
i realise
i'm the master of this bloody game!
fuck you all!

i will never kneel before the world!
fuck you all!
fuck you all!
i will never fall!

fuck you all!
Track Name: Sanguine Saints
a weakened mind
stops the soul
from reconnecting
with the light
it stays awake
in the arms
of bleeding statues
out of sight
of all the eyes
of all the faces
all the hands
that seek revenge

sanguine saints
are cursed to burn
in pits beneath the earth
sanguine saints
are made to learn
the ways of pain from birth

my eyes are open
my bones are crushed
by a thousand hammers
of those who knew
that all i wanted
was to set them free
from the will of blood,
from the crooked truth

sanguine saints
are cursed to burn
in pits beneath the earth
sanguine saints
are made to learn
the ways of pain from birth

in nomine spiritus sancti
behead the slaves, all for one
in nomine spiritus sancti
the sages burn forever

as the lords assemble to deny
your truly spoken words
flames begin to rise up to the sky
blindly igniting the heaven's doors
Track Name: Wake Me Up
if there's a way to go
why aren't you still free?
too many walls surround you
walls you cannot see

if there's a way to go
then why is it so dark
this tunnel leads to hell -
i see the burning mark

chorus:
i walk all alone
in a world made of sorrow
betrayed and torn,
all the souls stare from below
i walk all alone,
always hope for tomorrow
to wake me,
to wake me up

if there's a way to start
living from square one
to change the world,
make it brighter than the sun

if there's a way to live
above the filth and lies
then there's a way to
fly higher than the sky

chorus:
i walk all alone
in a world made of sorrow
betrayed and torn,
all the souls stare from below
i walk all alone,
always hope for tomorrow
to wake me,
to wake me up

bridge:
as all your thoughts
bring you to a state of apathy,
your self-destruction mechanism fires

there's no way to go
from the legacy of history
you are a grain of universal sand
all hopes drown in the rancid pool of liberty
as you see your life in enemies' hands

self deliverance
through self destruction
as a choice of the crooked weak
free the mechanism of malfunction
let the trigger speak

chorus:
i walk all alone
in a world made of sorrow
betrayed and torn,
all the souls stare from below
i walk all alone,
always hope for tomorrow
to wake me,
to wake me up
Track Name: Jade
forget the light of day
forget the light of day
the night is when you hit the road,
the night is when you play
you found a better way
you found a better way
to do every motherfucking thing
that i say

the neon lights are on
the neon lights are on
and all the hookers from the bar
are here to join the fun
today you're number fucking one

jade
come on, dance for me
jade
for all the world to see

behold the queen of kink
behold the queen of kink
as the royal children slowly flow down,
down the sink

so what does money win?
so what does money win?
its wins a life of rx
after an hour of sin

the fucking music's on
the fucking music's on
and all the bitches from the bar
are here to join the fun
today you're number fucking one

jade
come on, dance for me
jade
for all the world to see

what are you cocksuckers doing in my fucking room??

today you're number fucking one

jade
come on, dance for me
jade
for all the world to see
jade
come on, dance for me
jade
for all the world to...
Track Name: Revolt
i lead the way
i lead my own way to freedom
i lead the way
i have my own fucking math
i made my own
i made my personal eden
i made my own
i made my own fucking path

i have no fucking master
i have no fucking lord
i shall bring a great disaster to the global protocol
i cannot not kneel, i shall revolt!

i cannot be a slave, i can't obey the lord
i cannot wear the shackles, that i wore before
i cannot be a soldier in a mindless war
i cannot kneel, i shall revolt!

i live my life

i live my life
i don't believe in your kings
i don't look back
i cannot stop, i just break through
i don't look back

i cannot be a slave, i can't obey the lord
i cannot wear the shackles, that i wore before
i cannot be a soldier in a mindless war
i cannot kneel, i shall revolt!

i live in revolt!
i live in revolt!
i live in revolt!
i cannot wear the shackles, that i wore before!

i cannot be a slave, i can't obey the lord
i cannot wear the shackles, that i wore before
i cannot be a soldier in a mindless war
i cannot kneel, i shall revolt!

Instrumental
Track Name: The Nihilist
good morning idiot, its time to get out of your bed
go take a dump and sniff your socks, you're ready for today
you hate this fucking world, you wish someone will find you dead
you wish someday all obstacles will get out of your way

let the boundaries go
let them collide with each other and fall
let the ladders grow
leading you out of it all

bring out the nihilist!

you came back home to find your food as cold as polar ice
you cant believe your cat pissed all over your fucking floor
you understand you're all alone and finally you lose control
let sanity get the fuck out of your brain

let the boundaries go
let them collide with each other and fall
let the ladders grow
leading you over the walls

bring out the nihilist!
Track Name: Horde
all the windows are closed
fright is the weapon, the weapon he chose
no more food for the poor
only corruption, blindfolds and force

don't you dare to look back
hounds of the king are prepared to attack
daggers sharper than serpent's teeth,
steel tears you skin and the soil turns black

one an only ruler of worms
spreading your disease
one and only thief on the throne,
you shall die on your knees

i gather the horde
of harlots, demons, troops of blight
i gather the horde
of poison-blooded scum
i gather the horde
of spirits, darker than the night
to crush the will
of the traitor's bastard son

son of evil, behold
you are a coward, drowning in gold
for your personal needs
you are ready to set fire to the whole world

one an only ruler of worms
spreading your disease
one and only thief on the throne,
you shall die on your knees

i gather the horde
of harlots, demons, troops of blight
i gather the horde
of poison-blooded scum
i gather the horde
of spirits, darker than the night
to crush the will
of the traitor's bastard son
Track Name: Save The World
just let them live
just let them live their lives
just let them live
they are not bred to die
just let them live
you have no right to kill
just let them live
free from your will

you save the world from a
prospering place that doesn't need you
you save the world from a
part of humanity
you save the world from
borders just because you can break through
while people die to fulfill your vanity

why can't you see
your lies don't heal our scars
why can't you see
your terror's gone too far
why can't you see
you dug a million graves
why can't you see
you dug them for your slaves

you save the world from a
prospering place that doesn't need you
you save the world from a
part of humanity
you save the world from
borders just because you can break through
while people die just to prove your insanity

save the world from your guns
save the world from your bombs
save the world from your force-fed freedom
save the world from yourself

you save the world from a
prospering place that doesn't need you
you save the world from a
part of humanity
you save the world from
borders just because you can break through
while people die to fulfill your vanity

you save the world
Track Name: Don't Let It Go
you consume the seas,
you consume the skies
you make the heavens fall down
you breathe in the flames
as they melt my skin,
burning my bones to the ground

Don't let it go
Don't let it leave you on your own
all alone in the dark
Don't let it go
Don't let it feed on the unknown
As you drown below the ark
Don't let it go!

can i see your face?
can i feel your touch,
the touch of false ecstasy?
let me see your smile
as i crucify
what's left of my destiny

Don't let it go
Don't let it leave you on your own
all alone in the dark
Don't let it go
Don't let it feed on the unknown
As you drown below the ark
Don't let it go!
Track Name: Angels
i learned to know the world
never meant to be
a shelter for the
wounded hearts
and eyes, that shined so bright, we
always used to see
once close forever
cruelly tearing souls apart

don't you worry, just
don't you worry cause
i see them smiling in the sky
i only wish they said goodbye
don't feel sorry, just
don't feel sorry cause
the endless streams of tears you cry
will rise up high

i saw a destiny
brighter than the sun,
i saw a faith
that leads to grace
i ask the holy blade why
does it choose the ones
who try to make the world
a better place

don't you worry, just
don't you worry cause
i see them smiling in the sky
i only wish they said goodbye
don't feel sorry, just
don't feel sorry cause
the endless streams of tears you cry
will rise up high
