Mubla Na Thguob I have no idea from where these guys are drawing inspiration, but with the Croweater albums they are climbing their way straight to legendary status. If they continue to knock it out of the park like this they have the very real potential of being household names in the very near future. Favorite track: This Mountain.

FDJ Fall of an Empire return with part two of their Croweater saga. If you were party to part one you'll know to expect phenomenal grooves of proggish hard rock married to stoner/desert grooves all coated in superb vocals, if you was not then buy and listen to the previous album and come back to this after!
Superb!

Track Name: The Last Wishes of Kings
lumbering; Through the night
A beast storms from a swirling height
A new threat – found at sea
A giant stalks us from beneath

Over land, they come in pairs
Hide me under a broken cairn
a life lost, priceless cost
Black despair for a makeshift cross

Set me aside
Ill be safer where I lie
Never lost; stay the course
By the light of the gods remorse

A last command, to hold the line
If victory can n’er be mine
It may just be the futile hope of lords
To fell the beast and its source

Kneel before me
My child
Now Arise
A king tonight.
I bequeath this throne
Of broken bones
Take heed my seed
Of all I've shown
Take a seat
Then pass it on
When your light is dim
And have sowed your own
Track Name: This Mountain
WATER THE GROUND
WITH THE BLOOD OF THE CROWN
FOR IT IS WE
WHO RULE THIS MOUNTAIN

You can pry the key to my keep
from my dead hands as I sleep
as my ancestors weep
for this mountain

you can dance with my axe
'til my fingers go lax
as my blood runs back
down this mountain

WATER THE GROUND
WITH THE BLOOD OF THE CROWN
FOR IT IS WE
WHO RULE THIS MOUNTAIN

You can turn tell and run
the way this should have begun
before you ever set one
foot on this mountain

Now fighters form a wedge
cleave them with our edge
sweep them from the ledge
cleanse this mountain

WATER THE GROUND
WITH THE BLOOD OF THE CROWN
FOR IT IS WE
WHO RULE THIS MOUNTAIN
Track Name: Remnant
I'm Drawn like a lodestone
known as an old soul
weathered and weary
can't pay the debt I owe

I'm older than my years
would have you believe
salted with old tears
peppered with envy

IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH
WITH NO SHADOW OF DOUBT IS WHERE I FIND MYSELF
NO ROD OR STAFF TO COMFORT ME
I'M LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT MEMORIES
(Brent) I'M ON A ROAD
I DON'T KNOW
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHICH PATH I CHOSE

Hounds howl in the distance
a sadness in their bay
the loss of an old friend
so far that I can't hear

the sounds of a whisper
the rattle of cold chains
the answer is right here
in a way that I can't feign


IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH
WITH NO SHADOW OF DOUBT IS WHERE I FIND MYSELF
NO ROD OR STAFF TO COMFORT ME
I'M LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT MEMORIES
(Brent) I'M ON A ROAD
I DON'T KNOW
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHICH PATH I CHOSE

feels just like you're gone
but I guess it's me
so drink a toast to my ghost
and I'll miss you all alone
so drink a toast to my ghost
and I'll miss you all alone

IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH
WITH NO SHADOW OF DOUBT IS WHERE I FIND MYSELF
NO ROD OR STAFF TO COMFORT ME
I'M LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT MEMORIES
Track Name: The Brink
It's been 40 days since we've seen land
windburned face and bleeding hands
my belly's empty and my body's sore
break your back against the oar

HEAVE HO
THE TASTE OF DEFEAT IS NIGH
SCREAMING I
BREATHE IN ONE LAST SIGH

The sun beats down like a tyrant
The salt from sweat and sea combine
I grit my teeth and I close my eyes
for so long that I may be blind

HEAVE HO
THE TASTE OF DEFEAT IS NIGH
SCREAMING I
BREATHE IN ONE LAST SIGH

one last miracle for the journey home
albatross falters, soldiering on
pray to god we are not becalmed
and to keep the bow moving through the foam

insurmountable odds
like a divining rod
broken like blisters
endless as gods
sail on

ALBATROSS
BARE THE LOSS
SAIL ON
Track Name: Oracle
Refuse to wear a stitch of clothing
Among the hallucinated loathing

I watch the dance from the mountain side
Blood for blood .. a sea of red arrives

Smoke and mirrors
Watch me wither away

I tried to warn you of treachery
But you didn’t suspect that it was me
As you lay dying I miss you my love
As you lay dying I miss you my love

go to sleep
dont mind me
go to sleep
I will keep
...you

I dare to dream of a daring rescue
A pale horse and a scythe to test you
I know all too well what all of this means
I know all too well, this farewell

Smoke and mirrors
watch me wither away
Track Name: No Passage
I spent a dead mans coin
it didn’t seem like he would need it
I grabbed it all up in a shaking fist
And bought drink to calm my wits
Got through half a fifth before feeling sick
After all you must admit
It’s quite a parting gift
Especially when his purse is gripped
in the hand I shot him with

bought a suit of tailored fabric
A gunbelt made of hide
A bible bound in leather
And set off to make it right

you can send him down the river styx
give him two bits for his eyes
he’ll need to pay the ferryman
To get him to the other side

I laid all the coin before me
The gunsmith looked surprised
And crafted a gun as fine as God
While I waited idly by

I spent it all on funeral clothes
And corks that smelled of wine
on an only guns begotten son
til two bits is all you’ll find

those two tawny bits are made to fit
if you chance to note the size
beside the hole the bullet left
one for either eye.

you can send me down the river styx
give me two bits for my eyes
I’ll need to pay the ferryman
To get me to the other side

I need to find him and apologize
His death was underhanded
But it’s hard to see with coins for eyes
Once the boat has landed
I need to try and set things right
And plead for his forgiveness
But I took his funds and left him none
For an only gun's begotten son
And the ferryman get's no visit
