about

All Anchors, No Sails! That is the feeling we were left with when we had to abandon ship of a band called Nemea, which was very dear to us.

For a whole year we toiled with straining oars against an ineluctable current, to reach shore again, to move on!

Now we are finally ready to lift the sails once more, to start off on a new and exciting journey into the unknown. This EP is the opening soundtrack of that journey.

Track Name: Ironmongers
Merchants of death
Gather your arms
The blacksmith’s nails
Burn in the forge

Manipulate
Now craft your steel
I crave for a blade

Crafted by an
Ironmonger
Man of fire
Hide the hammer

On the anvil
A treasurehouse
I crave for a blade

Rise above
Rise above

Bearers of light
Children of light

Slay the carnage
Slay the carnage
Slay the carnage
Slay the carnage

Merchants of death
Gather your arms
The blacksmith’s nails
Burn in the forge

Scour through and loot
Instill order
Devoid of kindness

I relate
The dark is alive
Rise above
Rise above

Bearer of light
Children of light

It burns

There is no difference
In changing the elements
The benefits come with consequences

Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Hanged, drawn and quartered
Track Name: Bottomdrifter
We will move through light and sound
The ground will shake as we pass by
We will move through light and sound
The ground will shake as we pass by

We’ll plough beyond the sun
We are the malcontent
We do not welcome death
These trials lead to progress

Batten down the hatches
End it with a whimper
Become the wanderers
We’ll plough beyond the sun

We are the sons that always come home
The ones that brush objections aside

We will move through light and sound
The ground will shake as we pass by
We will move through light and sound
The ground will shake as we pass by

We’ll plough beyond the sun
We are the malcontent
We do not welcome death
These trials lead to progress
Track Name: Ghost In Machines
We molt away
From being to being

With endless time
For your bloody reign
In a single sky
Man alone chimes the hour

We molt away from being to being
Without loss or sacrifice
The sacrament, of death

And along the way
We have become machines

The time keeper is us
Man alone chimes the hour

From a grain of sand, we suffer a fear that no other
Endures

You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved

From a grain of sand, we suffer a fear that no other
Endures

You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved

When (the) dust settles
In this world
We’ll be forgiven
When (the) dust settles in this world
We’ll be forgiven
The ruptured
The broken

We all rise, to fall
And we stand up, to follow

From a grain of sand, we suffer a fear that no other
Endures

You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved
You gave us the gods we deserved
Track Name: All Anchors, No Sails
Winds and rain
Ravage the shoreline
Patiently
The ground will decline

Seas will rise
Oceans will swallow
Watch me sink
In the shallow

Hold my breath
Hold my breath
Hold my breath
Hold my breath

Upon ascent, from the depth
What remains is, salvation

Raise your sails
Raise your sails
Raise your sails
Raise your sails

Raise yourself above the compasses that will guide you through the light
No matter what the earth shall read I will guide you by your side

Start
The
antithesis of the deception

Start
The
Antithesis of the deception

Built your dreams upon the open water grave
Navigate them
Through the tidal waves

Raise your sails
Raise your sails

Raise yourself above the compasses that will guide you through the light
No matter what the earth shall read I will guide you by your side
Track Name: Bucephalas
We have always set out to build
Yet what we’ve reaped were ruins
There is nothing left
We have always set out to build

Behold the stampede
Collide with celestial bodies

The flux of asteroids
The orbital migration
Cluster of meteorites
The cataclysm

Take the reins in your hand
Shy away from the shadows
We’ll be born from myth alone
The sub sequential

Silver moon
Dark and gloom
Witness the one that stands before us (Observe the one that stands before us)
Witness the one that stands before us
Silver moon
Dark and gloom
Witness the one that stands before us
Witness the one that stands before us
Witness the one that stands before us
Witness the one that stands before us

Behold the stampede
Collide with celestial bodies
Behold

The flux of asteroids
The orbital migration
Cluster of meteorites
The cataclysm

Take the reins in our hands
Shy away from the shadows
We’ll be born from myth alone
The sub sequential

Silver moon
Dark and gloom
Witness the one that stands before us
Witness the one that stands before us
Silver moon
Dark and gloom
Witness the one that stands before us
Witness the one that stands before us
Silver moon
