flygon2002 Heavy use of acoustic guitar on mostly heavier tracks is a rather unique choice, and it works really well here. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Wrath on the Styx.

Greg Ashcroft What's there not to say about Amanda Lepre? The girl can shred, and has this crazy beautiful voice that just rattles me bones. Definitely worth it! Favorite track: Slay the Dragon.

Victor Max Vellon Amanda Lepre has such a beautiful voice which is pretty much my reason for buying. I've heard various songs of hers and decided to finally support her debut album. Her guitar work is pretty stellar as well and she gets extra points for making completely original tracks.

I chose "Slay the Dragon" for the favorite track because of the galloping riff for it. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. Favorite track: Slay the Dragon.

Under the guide of the moonlight to cross-attack we ride Under the guide of this cursed night, in perfect time we stride To slay the dragon, we clutch our wooden swords And our shields of Holy to release what's in store If we fight with rage and hatred in our hearts The disease will spread for eternity's mile mark So please, take mercy, we shall refuse to be like him Inject him with purity, we cannot let him win... we cannot let him... You just fell to where time has been reborn It's been a while since you've set foot To this life you know you have been sworn But still it doesn't hurt to take a look Greetings, my friend, so good to see you I know you've been waiting much too long I am the King of Kings, and you have stumbled into a spirit Trampled by a song Heed my words, understand what I say I know you've given your best Join me and you will be enriched by the day Take now a long, long rest...
Right - at the bottom of night I was lost Perilous, distraught And taking my armor down Down - Can you hear the sound? Echoes like a cry Dividing the night sky Burn your bridges to the ground Before you even try To reach the other side Breaking - shaking me Epic like a fading dream Until I wake But now, my body aches So I'm taking my armor down
Undying Hero 05:07
My time is gone The world is done But for the better good We must keep on! Ruins of what we could be Washed up on unfamiliar sand And I wake to another day In this uncharted land The world has been shaken Shifted by once-balanced might And here I sing this song for you Terrain sunken by divine might Worlds apart, into the aftermath We fell to dreary grounds The masses, like unforgiven All their eyes are cast down But, I never want to make you cry, and for this reason I must survive.... In my mind's eye, you are the reason I must survive! To tell the story again, Under false moonlight she sang: "Ave Ave Maria, my time is gone My time is gone This is your song." Oh my hero, so far... oh my hero, so far... But that was in darkest times With minions disguised And the power of persuasion Would result in this rise Crossing bridges over waters Into a story once forseen You won't be doomed another day I will save you from this siege!
Awakening 05:05
Miriam, won't you rest your weary eyes? Drift away until you revive Take the fruit, a venomous truth And pay the price for your crime Your eyes, kindled by the lamps of Paradise for a moment, gazed through mine Exposing my insides Like starlight Illuminates the dark of night Your eyes, a depth passing through into the deep Sterling and pristine Exposing my insides Like sunlight Shines a glow to the ocean floor We are awaiting your awakening Patient, awaiting your awakening Desecrating the altar of your waking
The Gift 04:57
I am still waiting for a change 'Cause this is what makes me feel alive And finally, inspiration came And leaving, softer than a sigh Possibly they were still there - only medicated And diminishing doses reveal how far I've made it I still honor that moment, once upon a time Reminding of all I've been through to make this mine Makes me feel alive It's time for us to sing with a renewed sense of optimism Evidence that music will cure us, if we just give a listen Bloodpool, your citizens are welling with hatred So sing a song for everyone to keep you untainted How long have we waited? Bloodpool, your citizens are welling with hatred The red demon's lair has poisoned the sacred Bloodpool, Bloodpool, Bloodpool We present this gift for you Bloodpool, Bloodpool, Bloodpool We present this gift for you Bloodpool, Bloodpool, Bloodpool We present this gift for you
I've been silent, letting this sit Stoic and unmoved -- know this is what I meant If Dante had his way, then so will I By the fire rain, you'd want me burned alive For my crimes, you claim, against nature But you would sit frozen at the center For your crimes against your very own For treachery is the worst sin one could condone Falls pristine, and luscious fields of green Oh, how the fallen still all yearn for these Bearing within myself the weight of this fury Sunken beneath the marshes of hostility And don't you try to deny what you did! I'll see to it myself after our lives are lived Then resurface from this misery mire and breathe in the air of Hellfire You, and me! On the shore of the Styx I will give your rage a fix 'Cause I've been sullen far too long Pacifist without principle Air with no motion... Now! Behold the souls of those whom anger overcame! Gotta let it go, learn to let it go... Gotta let it go, learn to let it go... Gotta let it go, learn to let it go...
Lock + Load 02:26
You crucify yourself And I will not stand by While you beg for salvation at the same time... Watching you writhe I reminded you, so patiently, the careful way to handle me And this time I say goodbye You handed me ammunition And then you let me hold the gun Teased me to pull the trigger But I'm gonna miss you when you're gone Brave son You told me you were a son now show them you will carry on Your cries of glory! Don't you tell me I was wrong 'Cause you were misleading, with a scenario repeating Through lack of passion, your beauty was fleeting Loaded me up with reasons Down the chamber one by one And though I'd hate to see you wounded It's time to bite the bullet now Brave son
August 03:47
Take me, take me back there, baby You travel back and forth Drift in and out House your things, and you have me where you want It's all brand new In a time so haunting Breathless to this euphoric taunting Relentless in my wanting... So take me, take me back there, baby I want to feel August in me A remedy flowing through my bloodstream Like I lived, then died, then indulgingly revived Your army seized my breath With every aching step Marching with that gaze Steady and anticipate Intoxication by a new emotion Riding through in waves Like horses in my veins Galloping ablaze That was my love... (It was calm under the waves - take me to that place)
Reverse Side 04:40
Halves 04:25
I gave this to myself because I needed some time I've been broken, I've been chased by all that is undefined So I came here again, in hopes to reconnect From the terror denying me the comfort of rest And I don't know whether or not I'm getting better In this body of halves that I own And I don't know whether or not you're getting tired Is this finally taking it's toll? Senses of evil, unreal of this kind The ones that exist only in my mind, which is What I've lost, broken by the wickedness I once felt For this fiction, I once thought was the answer for myself The waves are still crashing And the darkness is coming down My world is collapsing But I will not drown So lay you down beside me as long as it lasts Like a body of duality I am broken into halves
Broken in three You're so easy to read, still, now How can you turn to me under that weight of deceit You carry around so proud? The treacherous king squandered the crown She's your cocaine, but I'm from Your bowels of shame I'm your shit stain Cloacked in your misery Twisting that blade so deep Into my spine again This is how your honor your friend, well Innocent child, we've been reviled She cast us away into exile But, still all the while Subjects acclaim! Put on a smile from the Canticle of Pain! On march the banners of the King! (can you hear them sing?) Up on your feet! Come on now, rise! And profit from your time! Onward we march, to reach the stars! We have seen enough, thus far...
