Manfred Mayer What I really like on this Band are their orientalic influences. This Band is from Tunisia, it makes sense that they bring a little bit of this arabic flair in their music. Really an awesome Band! I love them now and hope to hear more of them in the future! Favorite track: Forgotten.

Frederic Bezies Good alternative metal with great melodies. Female voices are excellent too.

Great to see that metal is not only american or scandinavian :) Favorite track: Forgotten.

wormys_queue It's a great blend of different metal genres and styles, with great solos in basically every song, just that touch of oriental influences that feel natural but not artificial and above all else, performed by the beautiful, haunting voice of Jelena Dobric, who uses it in a way that is not the typical operatic approach as we are used to from other female-fronted bands Favorite track: Forgotten.

Blinded 04:10
Locked in my mind under my skin I buried every trace All that is lost I'll never regain And I cannot replace Was it me who denied How twisted truth became Was it you who just smiled while I was falling Every thought every word I just believed it Never a doubt not even a sign That I was losing all Blinded With every breath with every move This maze becomes so real Imprisoned and lost enchanted and fooled By things I'll never feel Where's the start where's the end When lies begin to play No escape from this land And no salvation Release me, why I'm still spinning around Inside your mind.. Forget me Every thought every word I just believed it Lost in your smile drowned in your eyes I couldn't feel it Torn and insane confounded and blind I found my way to live Soon you will learn what I've become And I will not forgive Every thought every word I just believed it Lost in your smile drowned in your eyes I couldn't feel it Torn and insane confounded and blind I found my way to live Soon you will learn what I've become And I will not forgive And I will not forgive

Forgotten 05:01
Everything you know Everything you've seen Everywhere you'll go and Everywhere you've been You are here to leave a trace You are here to make it all come true Brought into this world to be awake You are never given more than you can take Never be afraid, your soul's untied Listen to the voice inside Everyone you love Everyone you meet All you're dreaming of All that's incomplete They won't wait if you hesitate Take this day and make it all come true Never be afraid you'll go too far Only broken hopes will leave you scars That is all you'll have if you don't take Every chance you get and free yourself Now all that you have Forgotten years Forgotten sighs Hovering tears All that you are Forgotten name Forgotten smile Echoing blame All that you hear Forgotten voice Drawing you near Give up your fears Give up regrets and live Take this day and make it all come true

Here it comes another day To go through same emotions So indifferent so unkind It's not what we planned When it happened why it changed We slipped without a notion Pointless efforts useless tries I can't understand How we came to this place With so many lies we need to erase How to find a purpose in this Mess of fake expressions Look at us I can't believe We're falling apart Foundering All together gone forever Holding onto years we lost for good We're spinning around And all these lies are bringing me down Foundering All together gone forever I just want it all to disappear To fade away To let it go To free myself

Ageless 04:42
How to fight Another day Lost in dreams Lost in this emptiness I can't feel I don't want to stay Numb like this Trapped in the mess Where it all It all sounds like you It takes me back Now, Now you're wind Now you're rain Ageless wings Born again You're the light Roaming free Timeless love You'll always be All I am Fragments within Make me whole Take me, transform all this Nothingness The void in my soul Find a place Give me one moment where I I fall into you again And I can cry Now Now you're wind Now you're rain Ageless wings Born again You're the light Roaming free Timeless love You'll always be You'll forever Breathe within me Smile at me when I can't bear this Sun without you, This unfading sorrow, These shards I became Now Now you're wind Now you're rain Ageless wings Born again You're the light Roaming free Timeless love You'll always be You're the light Shining star Timeless force The love you are

Torn 04:01
Smile I never wanted to be In a place where I could love you feel you Trust you with my soul Love Always wanted to be Unrelated Always searching wanting Bleeding for you I could never say things I always wanted to say It's never Torn forever I could never love This person I wanted to be Just never Torn forever I never wanted to be In a place where I could love you feel you Trust you with my soul Love Always wanted to be Unrelated Always searching wanting Bleeding for you I could never say things I always wanted to say It's never Torn forever I could never love This person I wanted to be Just never Torn forever Can you find a way To make it disappear and Can you find a way To make it bleed for me Can you find a way To make it real and beating Can you give me back My peace of mind I could never say things I always wanted to say It's never Torn forever I could never love This person I wanted to be Just never Torn forever

Monsters 05:03
I know your disguise Mind so full lies The truth you pushed aside The promise you denied Look at your reflection You'll see just deception Intentions unclear Goals so insincere Promise breaking Lies resounding Plea you're faking Makes me sick, so Insincere, so Damn untrue, it's More than clear now This is finally you I know your disguise Mind so full lies The truth you pushed aside The promise you denied Look at your reflection You'll see just deception Intentions unclear Goals so insincere Indignation I must bear and This vexation Lead me nowhere No remorse and No more blame This spite is yours Not part of who I am I know your disguise Mind so full lies The truth you pushed aside The promise you denied Look at your reflection You'll see just deception Intentions unclear Goals so insincere I, I will go on and confide in my fate No one can take that away You, you'll stay forever imprisoned in your hate Forever broken and astray Fate Trust Hate Lust I will go on You'll stay forever imprisoned Tear up your disguise Sink into your lies Drown in all that is wrong That's where you belong I'll fight all your malice Learn from this injustice Stay strong on my path And I promise you that

He wants me to change my ways He wants to be saved again Now he asked me to stay the same Yet he still saves himself away I've seen no lights into his eyes I've found no love into his soul, he gives me more He's found his ways down to my depths And uses me against myself He kills me more Shallow heart sees no emotions yet tries to seize the day A notion it fails to grasp, for all is shades of gray As the years go by maybe tomorrow will bring A change, for you Use a last one I've seen no lights into his eyes I've found no love into his soul he gives me more He's found his ways down to my depths And uses me against myself He kills me more Images burning, screaming... The lights out make them dreadfully alive... when does this circle of beginnings and endings become synchronized? I sink and yearn and pour all my essence into its void... It holds me firmly in its arms and leaves me no sigh, But makes me scream for you... Forever...

Persona 05:11
In the mirror of my past There's a girl I used to know She's the face I live without And the soul that I disowned Now I'm falling through her eyes while her whisper lingers on It's a voice I recognize Oh, begging to come home I’m back Inside Where I've been living before And I can't hide From voices anymore They know My name The one I cannot recall And who's to blame For mask that has to fall Now she wants me to confess Every role I've ever played Every mask that I possess Every name that I betrayed But the shadow of my soul Says it's late to make amends And it's more than I can stand Oh, this is where it ends I want To be The one who opens the door To set her free The one forevermore She screams My name The one I'll never recall And I'm to blame The mask will never fall I’m falling Reaching for the light I’m dreaming Calling you I’m fighting Memories feelings I’m burning Losing all When this moment takes me out You will stand there on your own Tearing up disguise All the faces I have worn And I'm drowning in your hands Just a stranger made of glass If I could live again...

There was a land Far on the shore Hidden and lost And cursed evermore No one could smile And no one could feel the joy Again Far in that land A young man was born Came to the world Destined and sworn To take away all sadness And bring the joy again Hear my call Feel my heart I'll keep you safe In this time where we're apart I reach for your hand I dream of your eyes I pray for you to come back From the sea of fallen stars There was a land Far on the shore Hidden and lost And cursed evermore No one could smile And no one could feel the joy Again Hear my call Feel my heart I'll keep you safe In this time where we're apart I reach for your hand I dream of your eyes I pray for you to come back From the sea of fallen stars And I've been waiting all these years I have been crying out my eyes Pouring out all my tears Into the sea of fallen stars
