eyeofdajjal I found this through Ignea. Restlessly scouring through all Ignea videos on YouTube, I finally brought myself to watch Mermaids, since I was convinced this was going to be some sub par chick Metal. So far, so stupid, I got pummeled by angry ladyfolk like never before. Moving on to Ersedu, I found another treasure trove of fragility mixed with a black abyss of all sorts of, well, what I like about all sorts of Metal. Really sick, really beautiful and artistic. Never embarrassing or wannabe. Favorite track: Mermaids.

May I briefly touch you down Why so scream and why so frown? I keep hearing it when I dance around Tiny blow, another stroke Though nobody ever sees me But they blame me for their griefs, for their woes Lighter than feathers with a giant ballast of demonic soul The pestilence in every wing I am an aerial but grounding is the one I’m longing for I wish to count the days I breathe I can lift you up, show how it’s above, let’s bury the hatchet No one ever saw the ritual so pure Spirit with a kind but destructive nature, I would trade my immortality with you I’m afraid to blink and smile When I speak and as I sigh All the tragedies, diseases come to life Sorry if I am too windy Mountain temper, toes to top Let us go spinning in circles until dawn Lighter than feathers with a giant ballast of demonic soul The misery in every hiss I am an aerial but grounding is the one I’m longing for I want to taste the salt of tears I can lift you up, show how it’s above, let’s bury the hatchet No one ever saw the ritual so pure Spirit with a kind but destructive nature, I would trade my immortality with you I can lift you up, show how it’s above, let’s bury the hatchet No one ever saw the ritual so pure Spirit with a kind but destructive nature, Take my immortality for your world

Нема крові, нема горя Складає воїн зброю Рани всі загоїлись Не дрижить земля І крізь тонке мереживо Що на моїх очах Не видно більше воєн Не чутно більше втрат Battle cry, enchanting lullaby Armor pierced with anger Warlike sight is gazing through the helmet Falcon’s wild descendants Delicate lace on my eyes I don’t see wars and fightings, I hear no losses and no cries, Soldiers, it’s time, lay down your arms. Warrior, fall freely to my wings, Let me overshadow. Golden chalice touches your dry lips Run through childhood meadows. No explosions and no blood The wounds healed up so tightly Bravery is in the past Peace can be bold and knightly Cloud maiden with a heart that’s torn apart I have Kissed too many souls, they flew away to heavenly place Gates close forevermore Vyrij calls, and nothing holds you here Paradise awaits. Take your pain, remember my last kiss, You’re the final one lost in vain. Pieces of my shattered heart trapped with fallen Heroes With the many souls I fly away to heavenly place I kiss myself to death

Mermaids 04:11
Short of air Layer by layer It’s never on the surface Never on the surface The planet’s round And so we go in circles Making mistakes Checkpoints on our trail Ocean floor It makes us sore Being in the inland Dying in the inland Surfing chests The beauty of our mess Trapped in the nets We braid ourselves Rolling up and down Blue sky to the ground Tell me why we love Things that make us howl Going back and forth We’re not moving on Why the balance bores Tell me why it blows our minds Because all the pearls And treasures are here Under mermaid’s hair The essence of being Scared to death When things go right We’re thrown to the edge Drawn to the edge Spicy sand Is our last stand We never give a hand To common sense We are guests No element Matches our wishes Satisfies our wishes Waves caress And when we choke and gasp Cursed be We cannot drown ourselves Going back and forth We’re not moving on Why the balance bores Tell me why we groan Waters are calling Shallow is near Touching the bottom Will lend us wings

Black flower blooms inside of me Devouring other colors I forgot how should it be Nobody stops me They feed it with their detestation My arms turned black Yesterday I found my hope Bleeding in the distant corner I couldn't see its suffering And did a fatal shot Follow me, follow me To the Black Flowers Garden Join my new society We are parts of a common Universe, follow me I will be your sacred gardener Here we are. this is your place Love me, 'coz we love each other Follow me, follow me, follow me To the Black Flowers’ Garden I'm the Ruller and I’m that Fallen Angel turned into the Dragon You are not alone Knock into my world We dissolve in black love The next step to evolve I’m drawn to you again and again This madness does not have the end I’m the unblown insipid pod color me with your poisonous blood Colored with my black love Colored with my black blood

Made of blood and clay To be slaves and pray Without will Without freedom We’ve got the fire And our souls’ control Hands-free of chains, Hearts full of bravery and grace The time is now to pay For centuries of lies Don’t try to hide Beneath the frozen stars Call us the Eaters of the Sun Broken away From holy serfdom We are the Eaters of the Sun We tamed the air, the stone And the amber soul, Reinvigorated machines, Encrypted thoughts Blood in our veins Is made of spangle dust, Daylight and energy Of the darkest sighs Call us the Eaters of the Sun Call us the Eaters of the Sun Call us the Eaters of the Sun We are the Eaters, Mankind redeemers

about

“I like the way both bands blend different subgenres, so there’s something for everyone. This is a really good folky death/symphonic metal split disc.”
Antichrist Magazine

"There is no shortness of epic orchestration or tantalizing vocal displays throughout this album, and it has easily slid into my own playlist of inspiring music when I need that cinematic-level pick-me-up."
Metal Goddesses

"Excelling itself, in each track, ‘Bestia’ is a superbly delivered, exquisite production, exemplifying the powerful possibilities inherent in such vast and versatile sound combo’s as these. It’s rich with intrigue and melody, offering a fascinating new listening experience, throughout. Dramatically captivating."
Rock Queen Reviews

“A conceptual EP that washes itself with all the waters - and goes through the ceiling musically, lyrically and vocally!"
Dark Divas
