Lucas Herr I can only second flightoficarus' review on this - very uplifting and inspiring music. Feels like bathing in emotions! Favorite track: Ghost Line.

Deej Favorite!

I have never had a band left me wanting more so quickly, I cannot wait for the next release.

Uplifting, melodic, progressive, I hear a surprising amount of Rush type of progressions which is really nice for me. I'm having a very bizarre and concerning case of deja vous when I focus on the bands name and album cover....it's really freaking me out right now.

Ghost Line is a 2nd close favorite..no prog or djent fan could possibly regret purchasing this. Favorite track: Seclusion.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) lack Neon District sport a bright and uplifting sound that ejected me from the usual depressive fog. This is in no small part due to the fantastic riffs on this record. Combining djenty rhythms with freeform, jazzy leads; the seemingly endless hooks had me bobbing my head from side to side with each infectious note. Think Animals As Leaders meets Textures.

Track Name: Emergence
It started in confusion
It was getting suddenly heavy
I was searching a haunt
The memorie disorder
Do not allow me to kown who she is
It feels like I’m not strong enough

This is why I have nightmares
The mind’s time travel, visions as a curse
Disclose the path to the storm

The wind of a blurred past
Reflects the whole desire to be
Reproved to remain alone
To drown in fear of the unknown

I’m feeling so astray
I saw remnant of ashes growing up
Still knowing est from west
So many things to explain
I recall torrents in my dream
I have to understand

This is why I have nightmares
The mind’s time travel, visions as a curse
Disclose the path to the storm
That is why I want to share
Every knowledge i detain to
Make aversion emerge

The wind of a blurred past
Reflects the whole desire to be
Reproved to remain alone
To drown in fear of the unknown

Illusion is a trick to fake meaning
After all, the struggles, what we made
Our time gets lost anyway
Track Name: Resurgence
This world has never been afraid
Of its perception of life
We are living in a horde of giants
Which draining, on the way, all they can

Before returning
You should stay away

Reduced the vein, veil of darkness
I’m going to faint, failed to wrestle
Call out to the moon, fool the realness
Rise up as a lone throne of revenge

Since we know the price they play with it
To erase faith from everything
Assert a gleam of my own
Reveal its existence

Words as a pike, like a blindness
Respecting the law, flaw to get strong
To bury the fear, tears of madness
The uprising choice, voice of the stray

It’s coming around
The bully runs away

Since we know the price they play with it
To erase faith from everything
Assert a gleam of my own
Reveal its existence

To fight and defeat the gnawing crown, we need to grow
As a defender we stand in the crowd, then death follows tomorrow
Still waiting for the hopeful returns of the one we lost
Track Name: Seclusion
What if i can see the one they talked about
For an all constant ignition, hooray
All the truth smothers, the beauty of a lone environment
So i try to steal the artless betrayed again

This envy became a required infinity

Wonder about the necessary
Succomb to the fragile stunner
To conceal the brands, look at the dark
The faery radiance of life

Along this voracious passion, they lost their freedom
To relate those events contained into a lie

That really ripened into insanity

They dream about their memories, but it’s not enough
They think about their glory, and it’s so distant

Wonder about the necessary
Succomb to the fragile stunner
To conceal the brands, look at the dark
The faery radiance of life

There were also several
Worthy ways to surrender
They have trust in our mileage
In fact they fail
Track Name: Ghost Line
I’ve never known the way

Deceived by the light
Smothered with shackles
We are drowning down

Straining at the edge of our restraints
I need to flow
Strain to escape the rage
We’ll drift away

I’m striking out
To reach out for all that you’ve done

Ungrateful in the dark
Lay down on the floor
We are falling down

I’ve never known the way
I’m losing it all
I’m tearing up my faith

Straining at the edge of our restraints
I need to flow
Strain to escape the rage
We’ll drift away

To betray is an art
I swear to lie
To thwart the one who leads the pack

Straining to finally explain
The vast and sinuous scheme, my aim
Take a real path to escape
Dont give it away
Track Name: Smattering Entities
We have never seen
All that nature contains
In front of her we shake
As miserable
As intended by the poor
Who claim to control the estate, which is gone
The devastation of our reign

We should know, we could be distant
Aware to fill the universe

Awake the descenders
This collapse is over the repressed
A gap which never forgot what we’ve done
The life that we leave behind
Ancient foreigners
Feeling the echoes of sadness
Reaching the depths of every mental state

We’ll ever belong to
The irrational senseless
Without distrust we challenge
The laws in controlled
Defend with lethal gold
Our devastating buisiness that we stole
Just carry on as we always did

After the struggle, we left with nothing
We have to unlearn everything

Awake the descenders
This collapse is over the repress
A gap which never forgot what we’ve done
The life that we leave behind
Ancient foreigners
Feeling the echoes of sadness
Reaching the depths of every mental state

No one should pay with ignorance
The denial of our subsistence
The uncountable faults will never be forbidden
It amazes you with the power of what’s insane
Lunatic thirst for knowledge
Split between fascination and disgust

Awake the descenders
This collapse is over the repress
A gap which never forgot what we’ve done
What are we leaving behind ?

We are not able to survive
Then shall die
