Empty Skies And The Black Sun Serres, Greece

In the Old Kingdom of men, close to the town Morning Sun, lie the fertile hills Empty Skies. People's life was a prosperous one until the usurper king succeeded the murdered Rondul Thandrol the Great. A terrible destruction takes place upon the hills during the great annual festival of 6th of August leaving countless dead behind and damning Empty Skies as the most horrific place to bear witness. ... more

Track Name: i. Prelude
Once upon a time, in a kingdom of men...
Track Name: ii. What We Are Made Of
On my
Way back home my eyes slip on
Thoughts of passing days
On my own
These fleeting days we used to laugh
I saw my brother’s smile at last
We run, trying to escape

Home’s so far - it fades away
I can’t leave - this lonely road
In the middle of the night
Leaving back - I’m lost again
All I got - these memories
Live with me

Giving life in my own prospects
It feels to me a dead end
I know, I’m on my own
And you can say it’s a wasted youth
My eyes are wet and red
Stay, to make a change

Home’s so far - it fades away
I can’t leave - this lonely road
In the middle of the night
Leaving back - I’m lost again
All I got - these memories
Live with me

Way back home my eyes slip on
Thoughts of memories, Stay
Live with me
Live with me
Track Name: v. 6th Of August
It’s snowing outside
The streets, the streets are empty
The trees are dead. Those contorted sounds
To rouse dreaming gods from mountain holds
The moon no longer shines

Destruction, and I'm lost - I lose my mind
This place is so dead, This misery
Ignition, and I think I lose my life
Silencing all your fears

This place
Used to, Fit kids and hopes
Now is left alone, Part of this nightmare
Decades of slumber had made the gods
So forgetful

The town, a smokestack place, empty blocks
The flashing light, all I recall and kids screaming for help.
Track Name: vi. This Barren Ground
Oh God of light
Relinquish my sins
Let no vengeance
Cloud my mind
I bow before You

Sound of broken oath trapped in your maze

Is ingratitude what I've longed for?
Track Name: vii. Farewell
My dear father sleep and rest upon this land you loved
The green fields that turned grey
Hands covered your face scarred like chiseled soil and a prayer
Red tears're streaming down your cheeks
Those medals you have earned in years
Loose your shackles once and for all
I’ll leave a flower upon your grave
As I stare the sight of yours the earth you marked upon your ground
With calloused hands you built this place
Leave behind these griefs and woes
This withered place is not our home

With every ounce of blood you offer
I hold your corpse with trembled hands
I promise this upon this sun,
which turned from yellow and white to black
I give this oath to you my one

I always knew, I won't forget you.
