Carsten Pieper Listened again today to their delightful debut ( which I got for free here a while ago and realized that I liked it so much, that I simply had to buy something from these 5-piece prog rock outfit. They say, that it's even better than the debut ;-) Anyways, thanks for the great music, guys!

This is our second album, and is a definite step toward where we wanted to start moving musically. The songs are much more composed and thought out than in our first album, and we believe that that aspect of it can be heard in each and every song. The album is loosely written around the concept of a man traveling around and conquering/settling all places he goes.

If you enjoy our music, we would greatly appreciate it if you considered paying for a download of the album. It costs us a lot to put this stuff together. If we could do it for free and still be able to live life, then we'd love to give it away. If you can't afford to pay for it but would still like to download the album, shoot us an email and we can work something out!

Track Name: Ortuo Ortni
Track Name: Hiding Spot
Run and hide just like you did when you were just a child. I will close my eyes for a while. I’ll count backwards from 10. Here I go... inside. You’ll never be caught if you are inside. I’ll go right on by, miss the lights, and nobody will know where you are.
Track Name: Overboard
Diving in and breathing the salted air, is this all strange? I can see the bottom of the boat. Can not see the bottom of the floor below. Slower now, i'm passing an inky cloud, is this all too strange? Sinking to the bottom in a trance, "Captain shoulda shot him when he had the chance!". First living things, and now the weight of sea and fate has settled in... and I will win. 3 days go by since I’ve seen fire. “Hey giant squid, please can you help me out now? I've got revenge on my mind, it is time. Somewhere above, there is a floating vessel. Take it down and bring it to me, if you please.” So it goes on its way, searching for sailing
ships past crashing waves. There aren't many left.


Thanks giant squid. Thank you for helping me out. I've had revenge on my mind, it is time. Somewhere above there was a home but now I can't return... not that I mind. Though this chain will not rust, I am content now. Paint a cloud of dust, show me its not too strange. This chain will not bust. I am alone now in this ink and dust.
Track Name: Limbo
What was that? It was so sad. Someone is messing with my mind. It’s a dream, only a dream. There is nothing to fret about. In my mind, I've woken up, but still you feel most singled out. It's not so. You’re not alone... but still I may not make it home. Many things are happening that I don't understand and I cannot control what I know to be real... And the days will go on ‘till the stars all burn out in the empty sky... but not if you light them on your own.
Track Name: Heading Home
I’ve got a train to catch at 9. If it is late I will be fine. I’ve got problems of my own design. If I am late I will be fine. I’ve got problems with this song’s design. Riding, driving, going home to a place where no one goes home... my god, were home. When. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. he. died. no. body. was. there. for. him. when. He died for us my brother! He wasn’t there! Someday you will find it harder to never be forgotten.
