about

At the sunset, the shadows become longer. Demons do not have them though. The storyline of the album starts at the Cocytus lake, the ninth circle of Hell. We guide the hero (together with the listeners) through the entire emotional bestiary of fear, aggression, greed, and apathy. However, where there is a shadow, there is a light. Where there is death, there is love. And the end of the world may give birth of the new one. Everyone has its own hell inside and his personal Satan. The endless vicious circle it is.

about

Strange Melizma Moscow, Russia

SM is somewhere in between the incoming alt. and hard-rock avalanche and the overwhelming orange floods of prog.rock, which sembioticly lights everyone up and knocks’em down to the prehistorical call of Southern.
So, If you're a fan of tough-muscle brutal hurshed vocals,your soul lives in 70s,but within your mind you realize that music always changes and improves - you’re in a right place and time

Track Name: Sunset
==== {intro}
Immotus in deserto stratus,
Et voce deus me adfatus:
“Resurge vates, resque geras,
Et fato pareas supērbo,
Pervagans maria et terras
Hominum corda ure verbo”.

When shadows vanished
When lines merged
The sun's hiding its light

Don't try to find it
It will make you blind
The sun's hiding its light

I know who you are..
You are looking for answers.
The Raven keeps ‘em.
And you have to pay.
But first.. turn the light ON!!

- Stop it.. what happens?

- Do you know who they are?

- No! But who are you?

- For now I’m just a splinter..

- So where are we?

- We're in the place. In mind maze. We are on a ninth turn.
Welcome to the shadow.
Track Name: Night
It means that we have risen
From the dust to change this time
You've felt how strange melizma
Created present life.

The Sun is hiding its light!

It sounds like an earthquake
Which devastated this world
It was an important key
To open knowledge door

The Sun is hiding its light!

You're waiting when the next day
Opens its gate for you
But when you see the last ray
You can't know what is true.

The Sun is hiding its light!
Track Name: Phobia
One day you asked me "Are you afraid of the heights?"
I said that I don't know...
I don't know why’d i be afraid of this,
It's just a height - so I don't fear it all.
I always get high, didn't you know?

You said I can fall down and hurt my back.
I can break my head and leave this world,
But I'm not afraid of this,
Cause I won't climb the mountains.
Yeah I prefer digging deep.
Oh yeah you know what I mean..

One day you asked me "Are you afraid of snakes?"
I told, that I don't know...
I don't know why’d I be afraid of them,
They’re only crawling in the grass".
Crawling in my pants!

You said they can bite my leg.
Their poison can infect my blood,
But I am not afraid of this,
I believe that's all in the hands of God. X2

One day you asked me "Are you afraid of the Death?"
I said that i'm not afraid.
The only thing I'm really scared of
Is to hurt somebody's heart.
The only thing I'm really scared of
Is to hurt somebody's heart.
Track Name: Paranoia
I wanna sleep,
I wanna sleep now
But i can't keep
Keep silence in my mind.
I wanna go
I wanna fall down
But it's too cold to
Swim to other side
I wanna hide
Myself from everyone
They always spy
They are everywhere

I wanna find
I wanna find out
The way to other side
Another way!! Х4

So I’m too tired
And I don't mind
If the blinded eyes
Can help to find the way
To the memories
Which i had missed.
Too hard to resist the
Desaturating grey.

Oh I'm falling down
Into the deepness of sound
From the light to the dark
To the fathomless slough
And there is nothing to care
About, nothing to swear,
And nothing to earn.
I cannot find the way

I've got no silence!
I've got no silence!
I've got no silence!
No silence in my head!
Cause something’s bad
Something’s bad now!
And something’s strange..
I don't know what the hell!
This place’s so creepy
I fear this dreaming
Does not stop tearing
My soul like fuckin' prey

I wanna get
I wanna get out
I need escape to
ANOTHER WAY!!!
Track Name: Limbo
Time. Sun.
Rays on the path.
Deep dream.
I can't... I can't wake up.

Time. Moon.
Raven batted claws.
They took away
My mind in their paws.

Have you seen
How a worm turns into butterfly?
Can you drop everything
For the one day of the flight?
Clouds cover the sky,
But the God never can be concealed.
Mankind will not survive,
But the love won't disappear.
Clouds cover the sky...
Clouds cover the sky...
Mankind will not survive...
Mankind will not survive...

Time. Rain
Washed away my thoughts
Siren's song.
I can't.. I can't wake up.

Time. Fog.
Puddles on the ground.
Trap of sleep
No turning back.

Have you seen
How a worm turns into butterfly?
Can you drop everything
For the one day of the flight?
Clouds cover the sky,
But the God never can be concealed.
Mankind will not survive,
But the love won't disappear.
Clouds cover the sky,
Clouds cover the sky,
Clouds cover the sky...
Track Name: What's the Cost
What's the cost of humanity?
What's the cost - the thousands of prays..
What's the cost, please tell me, tell me what d’ you mean?
What's the cost, what's the cost?!

You decide between killing and dyeing..
So What's your choice? Kill or be killed?
Oh tell me what's the cost of your surviving?
What's the cost?

For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!
For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!

Who allows you ruling all these souls?
Are you sure of decisions you’ve made?
And who rates the scores of your way?
And who calculates the lives it cost?

Who do you follow?
Who do you follow?

For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!
For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!

For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!
For power to choose and to dispose of the others fate
You sold your soul!
You have exchanged the freedom on the eternal jail.
You sold your soul!

Who allows you ruling all these souls?
Are you sure of decisions you’ve made?
And who rates the scores of your way?
And who calculates the lives it cost?

Who do you follow?
Who do you follow?
Track Name: Phoenix
I remember the day when the sun is gone
When the shadows had covered the whole world
How the smile has disappeared from her face
How the tears had flooded last days.

I remember, yes, how my blinded eyes
were searching for something of my own
How for centuries I couldn't realise,
that the one thing I have is my soul.

World was reborn! X4

I remember, mankind lived in the lie
Everyone was betraying the all
And how after too long and too scary time
It had led to the end of the world...

I remember, yes, how people were dying
When their thoughts and behaviour was wrong
And how after in the greatest fire
I had seen how the world was reborn.

World was reborn! X5

Aaal-right!
I've got the score.
We're now about to show you something truly special.
Now watch and see the way this cluckin' hell flies right into the sunset.

Come on! X7

World was reborn! X12
Track Name: Rafnsvartr
Tell us raven, Rafnsvart,
Where’s the edge of this mad world,
Where’s the edge of Good and Evil,
What’s in the deepness of the River?

When we cried for your true wisdom,
We had forgotten the deep truth's words,
But our souls had been prepared to listen.
We’d got lost between the worlds.

Tell us raven, Rafnsvart,
What is right and what is wrong?
Where lie the paths of God and Devil,
What’s in the deepness of the River?

When we cried for your true wisdom,
We'd forgotten the deep truth's words,
But our souls had been prepared to listen.
Raven's voice tore down the world.

Tell us Raven, Rafnsvartr,
Where’s the end of tears of earth?
Where’s the end of cries and fears?
What’s in the deepness of the River?

When we prayed for your true wisdom,
We had lost the Mother Earth
But now our souls had been prepared to listen.
Why are you silent, Rafnsvartr?

Raven flew from otherworld wilds,
Raven brought us bitter news,
"Nothing is neither wrong, nor Right -
Everything will come to doom»

Raven told it and flew away,
So the echoes of his words
Filled our minds, confused the ways.
Ashes covered the whole world.
Track Name: Light Pulses
Do you remember the fog, where the delusions were born?
Do I remember the road, where the home was never known?
We remember the dust of all our ideals..
We remember the ashes of all our desires..

Can you feel the sun, that shines between us?
Do you know, how it's rays go through the reality?
And where it comes to?
That light pulses, and pulses in your arms, in your eyes, in our hearts, and all around.


Do you remember, how your life has turned to the swamp?
Do I remember, how no one couldn’t understand.
We remember the rain, which had never stopped.
We remember the pain, that we caused..

Can you feel the sun, that shines between us?
Do you know, how it's rays go through the reality?
And where it comes to?
That light pulses, and pulses in your arms, in your eyes, in our hearts, and all around.
Can you feel the sun, that shines between us?
Do you know, how it's rays go through the reality?
And where it comes to?
That light pulses, and pulses in your arms, in your eyes, in our hearts, and all around.

Do you remember the night, when we met?
Yeah I remember, how your touch has frozen the time.
And all our tears and all our fears have gone.
And upon a new world has risen the sun.

Can you feel the sun, that shines between us?
Do you know, how it's rays go through the reality?
And where it comes to?
That light pulses, and pulses in your arms, in your eyes, in our hearts, and all around.
Can you feel the sun, that shines between us?
Do you know, how it's rays go through the reality?
And where it comes to?
That light pulses, and pulses in your arms, in your eyes, in our hearts, and all around.
Track Name: X
Wake up, you body, and turn the life ON!
Now you're ready to face it all.
... everything is clear for me now.

Wake up, you body, and turn the life ON!
It's the time to fix that shattered sun!

If your riverbed is full of stones
The flood threatens to wash away the towns.
Wipe out the fog from your head
Your world’s being turned by your own hand
... everything is clear for me now.

Release your inner light!
Revive your essence!
Keep the true insight!
You already know the answers.

Release your inner light!
Revive your essence!
Keep the true insight!
You already know the answers.
Release your inner light!
Revive your essence!
Keep the true insight!
You already know the answers.

Revive your essence!
Keep the true insight!
You already know the answers.
Track Name: Endless
When we stood on the edge of the world.
Raven told.. Oh Raven told..
Raven told - the key is knowledge of the revival law, the cycle law.

There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome
There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome

If everything is covered by the ashes,
Even if we’ve lost our trust.
The time will bring all back to life,
Even if everything turns into dust one day.

There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome
There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome

I have seen the burning Earth's blood.
I've seen the corp - the dead body of the world.
I've seen the wilting, the decay of the glory.
But the new life has to come after all of this.

There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome
There's not truth. And there's no lie.
There's only karma law.
So you'll have to decide,
Hide your fears or overcome
