about

"Released, reviewed and lost a few months back. So now we revisit it and are once again thoroughly surprised and amazed at the antediluvian stoner rock produced by five-some Strauss. On their first six tracks strong self-titled release they manage to profess their love for everything sludgy and stoner that belonged to that first classic wave or new born heaviness. And they do that with such proficiency and compulsion it sounds like it’s being discovered for the very first time. Fuzzy riffs and stormy grooves tornado around your head as vocalist Stef propels you ever forward through every song. It’s dirty, it’s raw and it’s highly addictive. Which is also due to the fact that they use all that antique goodness and add some new metal influences gradually; aiming it for a superior future. Just hear those drums man; something is coming. Better watch out…"
(JK, Stoner Hive)

Track Name: Burning sky
Device of love dressed in blood
Why don’t you try to save me from myself?
Insecure you don’t know
That life is turning us into a fire
Don’t deny one more time
Device of war dressed in love
Why don’t you try to fuel my desire?
I’ll burn in the sky
I'll burn in the sky
I’ll burn in your mind
Hold on tight
We’ve come this far through rejection and hatred
Just wondering who and why
Made it so hard for us to be the ones
Who will light-up the sky
I’ll burn in the sky
I'll burn in the sky
I’ll burn in your mind
Hold on tight
The sky will turn into fire
Track Name: Mi casa es tu casa
Come to my place
Feel what it’s like to crave in defeat
Crave for more with tight hands
Then cry and scream
Pain I can’t sustain
Disintegrates this state of mine
Yes I’ll talk to you
And I’ll cure your wounds
Then finally die
Putsch
Destroy
Give me your innocence and trust
Let go
Comply
Just sleep away so wet and warm
Sweet dreams of falling angels are turning into fiends
My chrysalis is darkening
It’s metamorphosis
Pray
Pray
Just pray
Pray
Pain I can’t sustain
Disintegrates this state of mine
Yes I’ll talk to you
And I’ll cure your wounds
Then finally die
Putsch
Destroy
Give me your innocence and trust
Let go
Comply
Just sleep away so wet and warm
Sweet dreams of falling angels are turning into fiends
My chrysalis is darkening
It’s metamorphosis
Stay silent
Break through the edge of pain
Witness demise and rage
No one will stop you from being god himself
Die inside
Spill out your blood until you see through my eyes
Open your wings
Fly free
Mi casa es tu casa
Track Name: Trigger
My sweat is cold sweat
For the light in your eyes I will never forget
So strange is the way your smile
Silently faded away and did never come back
Screaming out my sorrow I won’t ever feel the pain
So bright is the thunder of divine
No one could see what is really behind
My faith has shown me the truth
Reason why I’ve been screaming for you
Screaming out my sorrow I won’t ever feel the pain
Pain never ceases to be
As angels keep falling untold
They travel through space
They touch my hand
Truly we'll be a reflection of god
Pain never ceases to be
As angels keep falling untold
They travel through space
They touch my hand
Truly we'll be a reflection of god
Break out of all things you are not
Track Name: March of one
Don’t regret
Step back
Why don’t you tell me why?
Regret
Step back
Why don’t you tell me then?
I knew you were the one on stage
Neglected soul in search of faith
But one day you will know
Who you were
I never said I was saint
Oh no
I never said I will repent
Don’t go now
I knew you were the one off stage
So proud and still so doomed to fade
But one day you will know
Who I was
I never said I was saint
Oh no
I never said I will repent
Don’t go now
Don’t regret
Step back
Why don’t you tell me why?
Regret
Step back
Why don’t you tell me then?
Track Name: Trapped outside
Watch me grow
Watch me fall
Watch me crawl into this world of falsity
It shapes your mind
It shapes you blind
It shapes you until every detail’s combined
I feel you
I feel you
I feel everything’s waste upon truth
I feel you
I feel you
I feel my skin breaking right through
Besides you smile while I take you across
Watch me grow
Watch me fall
Watch me crawl into this world of falsity
It shapes your mind
It shapes you blind
It shapes you until every detail’s combined
I feel you
I feel you
I feel everything’s waste upon truth
I feel you
I feel you
I feel my skin breaking right through
Besides you smile while I take you across
Shall my soul hold something inside?
Watch me grow
Watch me fall
Watch me crawl into this world of falsity
It shapes your mind
It shapes you blind
It shapes you until every detail’s combined
I feel you
I feel you
I feel everything’s waste upon truth
I feel you
I feel you
I feel my skin breaking right through
Besides you smile while I take you across
Shall my soul hold something inside?
Game over me
Track Name: Stop pause and play
There is no space for you in my mind
It just doesn’t feel like it used to
Immersed in deep-blue skies we could fly away
Don’t hesitate to hope we’ll be one again
Oh my child seems so far away
It feels so wrong to be far apart
There is no trace of you in my mind
There’s nothing left of you deep inside
Sweet child I beg you please don’t you cry
No you won’t change my mind
