724alpha a breath of fresh air in death metal/ progressive. this band has no fear of experimentation with jazz sounds, clean vocals while not really sounding like any of their peers. mark my words in 6 months this album will be shit hot in north america critic lists. Favorite track: OCEANS.

GW Whitehead What if Dream Theater pared back the boards, added a guitarist, and replaced their singer and started playing Death Metal? I bet it would sound something like this. This is a deep and exciting fresh record of Prog/Death. Going onto the Best of list!

Track Name: MEGALODON
Through the ages, we succeeded
Sophisticated designs of life
Growing stronger beneath the sea

There was a time long ago
In a period called Pliocene
The creature was Megalodon

Always looking for the weak
He has come from afar
Teeth are massive killing weapons

Coming to you
Scars are bleeding
Deep blue awaits
You’re dead

Far from the Ocean’s depth
Clay soils reveal tooth remains
Millions of years have passed since then
Megalodon lived here and now lies in my hands
Track Name: NIGHTMARE GALLERY
Trapped inside a hole
Air is turning cold
Standing corpse on the floor
Dead eyes watch from the wall
Haunted gallery
Painted insanity

Chased by fear, life means nothing
Keep running, go faster, then fall
Nightmare goes on

Don’t look back, behind the doors
Hunting shadows will take human form
Breathe the madness that comes out from the paintings
Rotten faces screaming out from their coffins

Watch your step, don’t try to hide
Surrounded by creatures, rejecting the light
All the paintings become alive, moving faster
Blinding darkness, captive souls, feel the nightmare

Like water flow, the horror grows
The mirror breaks, you’re not alone


Breathe the madness that comes out from the paintings
Rotten faces screaming out from their coffins
All the paintings become alive, moving faster
Blinding darkness, captive souls, feel the nightmare

Chased by fear, life means nothing
Keep running, go faster, then fall
Nightmare goes on

Haunted gallery
Painted insanity
Haunted gallery
Track Name: ZEAL
"Zeal is a volcano, the peak of which the grass of indecisiveness does not grow"
(Khalil Gibran)

It was a time of challenge
Despite of being blinded
Growing self-delusion
Despising intuition

Banal fears
Devouring faith and light
Against my will
Forced to insecurity and then failure

Left in silence, regret
Deception patterns, betrayed

Lost, hurt and left behind
The price to pay, unforgivable pain
Please, no more

Unfaithful and delusive
To drag the guilt ‘til madness
A lesson learnt by fire
Forget the past


Jealousy was never meant to appear in me
Broken trust can make you fall asleep, aching
Letting go may bring you down in tears
Be brave

Fighting against your self-respect
Drowning in pain, your last mistake

Waking the light to come back
Unity
Track Name: EXPIRED KINGS
Hunted now from deep inside
There’s nothing you can do to hide
Ways to suffer, leave you blind
Your competition is out of sight

The war is over, so stop pretend
The price of success will lead to death

Feel in one second all the reasons why
Heal the forsaken, are they calling you?

The war is over, so stop pretend
The price of success will lead to death

Not all share the same goals and longing dreams
Look out, the mirror reflects what he sees

Far between your eyes there’s a sign you can’t deny
Leave the past behind
Seek and find your peace of mind

Time to rise
There’s still hope
Hold your breath
Can’t you see?

On the way, not ashamed
Keep the strength, no more wasted tears
Mind control, without fear
Standing still, no more expired kings
Track Name: MEDUSA
Spiral of pain awaits me if I cease to watch
Be strong to face her demons trying to chain your soul again to the past
Stop her influence, need to forget

Whisper in my ears, turn into dust
Haunted shadows moving around me, tearing my wings

Look into her eyes, then I’ll be lost
Be prepared for the traps of the weak

She will disappear

Blinding fear
No more tears
Cut her head now

Compassion embraces me
Don’t look into her eyes
Story repeating
She’s trying to steal your soul

No more tears
No more fears
Cut her head now
Track Name: OCEANS
All I see, diversity, don’t leave me down
Blowing wind, knocking at my face
Flying waves

Deep blue sea is calling me
My home is gone
Rising free by magnetism

Ocean’s seed is feeding me
But men don’t know
Creating life through millions of years
Let it flow

Coming around to see
Destruction beneath the sea
Wasting a thousand lives
There’s blood in our hands

Ignorance, arising from greed
Stop their hands
Make no sense, extinction we create
So be prepared


Stop from killing my family
The sea is where we all were born
Searching compassion
No one cares
Human condition
Too much dare

We’re all wasting our time
And it will be never come back
You know it
Man closes the circle of life
There’s no more time to wait
No way!

Tired of the wait
The Ocean feels pain
Waters arise
Enraged, insane

The world starts to change
Confusing our minds
Please understand
We’re killing ourselves

Beyond the shore another world still waits to cure
Track Name: INTERGLACIAL
World of melting stones
Seeds of life begin to rise
Flow without control
Waters rise, oceans grow

Learning to breathe
Creating oxygen becomes the goal
Explosions and erosion
Shaping reality to obtain this land

Learning to breathe
Creating oxygen becomes the goal
Explosions and erosion
Shaping reality to obtain this life

Elements regenerate
Newborn nature

Life, a mystery
Through the ages hard to see
Earth is now revealed
Creature’s conspiracy
Fossil traces speak to me
Track Name: ORIGIN
Calm down, reconcile with yourself
Wasted summer rays, memories slow erase
You need time…
There’s no other place like home
Don’t be scared to walk alone

Do not place your happiness away from you
Searching outside what you already have inside you
There’s no other place like home
Don’t be scared to walk alone

Lying to yourself, shortest way to fall
Never forget what you already learnt

Wake the essence, increase the light
As we grow older, you can’t deny
Nobody can ease your pain
It all depends on what you create
Be careful of what you wish
There’s always something becoming real
Unforgiven, pursued by fear
The train of thoughts cannot help to see



Rain came to wash my soul
Wake the essence, increase the light
As we grow older, we drive our path
Rain came to wash my soul
No possessions, just keep the strength
The answer lies within yourself

Contemplating reality
A thousand mirrors speak loud and clear
Leave the prison, head your fate
Intuition will shape the brave
Hidden treasure still shines on me

Lying to yourself, shortest way to fall
Never forget what you already are
