*********** The New Island *********** Somewhere in the ocean Subsists a land, a still pure place It is told in legends That this unknown island has been blessed No map, no related tale Prove its reality All mysteries remain on This mystic territory Land at grazed relief Carved by all celestial rains As far as the eyes can see Expanses of verdant plains Steep cliffs and vertiginous mountains Culminating beyond the skies This natural sanctuary is preserved Of chaos of mankind * Beyond the horizon, beyond the sky At the middle of thousand floods A paradise of life Will be soon our new island * Ancient haven of peace Mystic creatures in harmony Carry a kind look to this So fragile unity Maternal and nourishing land Sufficient for its existence Has a wish to preserve, alone, Its purity, its innocence * Beyond the horizon, beyond the sky At the middle of thousand floods A paradise of life Will be soon our new island (*2)

The Arrival 04:44
*********** The Arrival *********** Somewhere, on the highland coast A boat goes to sea For an interminable journey Explorers follow their quest They’re eager of glory And prosperity They share an ultimate end They’ll erect a new word Keeping behind them their own land Master of their destiny Under protector eyes of the gods Counter forces of the sea * Seniors had a vision Of a land to conquer together Look at the horizon We have found here our destination * Farer, behind a thick fog Outlines are forming It’s the accomplishment of their hope The journey goes to end After these hard times of suffering Witness of their patience Here is the hope of a new future Vast lands to conquer One point far in the horizon A boat comes from the sea For an unknown reason They’ll find their destiny. * Seniors had a vision Of a land to conquer together Look at the horizon We have found here our destination (*2)

Firs Days in Paradise Let’s go explore This promised land of wealth Beyond the reefs of coral Let’s penetrate into the depths of the forest. Creatures with a strange appearance People this dream like world So receptive, this land Will be our new life Let’s prune, let’s cut Lianas and reeds to chart our course. See this space by the river We shall settle here Widen this clearing Erect huts and fences Let’s settle here in Our new paradise At each pickaxe you hurt me You seach in my own heart Leave this place now Protected by the Gods * Nothing to fear Our world will rise Let’s settle here In our new paradise * Today, some of the boldest Will go with me to the mountains I already perceive gold Here, we will find what this land contains Now begin to hollow Deeper out in this spot With this brilliant stone, we’ll follow The road to wealth These resources are not yours Depart while there’s still time Stop your journey now Leave this shrine * Nothing to fear Our world will rise Let’s settle here In our new paradise * Leave here now As long as you can depart. You will find your paradise here This land must be preserved. * Nothing to fear Our world will rise Let’s settle here In our new paradise (*2)

Spheria 04:55
Spheria Lost in light I wander like a lost soul In a world that blinds So much that the reality slips out Destiny Weights on me, like a divine hand In a way I can’t Understand, but that I ought to respect * Light, darkness, Here you are anchored in reality, Road is traced, Flee and you’ll restart endlessly * When the oppressive darkness Replaces the reassuring light In my weakness A voice guides me in the obscurity I follow The road that I can’t sense I feel spirits Near me. They’re my reality. * Light, darkness, Here you are anchored in reality, Road is traced, Flee and you’ll restart endlessly * Don’t flee, Reality would catch up you. Don’t return, The void would obliterate you * Light, darkness, Here you are anchored in reality, Road is traced, Flee and you’ll restart endlessly (*2)

The Last Ascension In the distance, a thick fog Envelops the forest With such an impenetrable barrier That the lights can't break through At the edge of the woods This strange mist progresses Too early, it will cover Our village. No way-out * Coming straight from theshadow An infernal vision, These creatures flood us In a devastating wave Flee !! * In a march that is our last hope, Group together Warriors fight for Our survival By a divine hand, Elements rage This willpower goes beyond us! We've fought, but we are falling * A last vision, the brightness Of a divine light. Above the summit of trees Our village seems a ruined field With others, I’m rising Beyond the sky No more suffering, My mind is shading off * The mist dissipates, Ashes disperse themselves. Under the light of dawn, A flower blooms

about

This is an EP in Celtic & Symphonic metal style, with a female singer. The whole album relates a story, by a descriptive music. There is a progression in the instrumentation: Celtic with soft melodies in the three first pieces and darker with soundtrack influences in the last tracks.
