Timo I am very happy that i found this gem! "Isolate" is an absolute masterpiece, but also the other tracks come very close to that. The whole concept of Alchemy, the approach of making and releasing his music, is so refreshing and exciting for me, that i instantly feel the need to grab my guitar, drive to Denmark and jam along with him. Cool release, and i bet also a cool guy!!!

Lament 05:00
Ever get the feeling something's very, very wrong I walk around for hours, or what seems like all day long People passing by me say nothing to me at all I feel like I'm invisible, like a discarded doll I never eat, I cannot sleep I have nothing to do I keep thinking if I see them Then they can see me, too Remembering is hard these days I don't know why I'm here My sense of purpose replaced by This overwhelming fear I see familiar sights and sounds but shrouded in darkness My memories fade out and I remember less and less I know I should feel safe, but this seems alien and strange I try in vain to recall why everything had to change Something's wrong, I know it And it's not just me this time I'm being punished for something But can't recall my crime I wander soundlessly from place to place and room to room I can't help feeling this is my inevitable doom

Isolate 03:12
I'm gonna isolate myself Say that you need me, promise you'll always be there I'll isolate myself Say that you love me Promise you'll always be there for me Our paradise was never meant to last You know it, I know it We just never believed it What can I say It's never easy to say Maybe you'll miss me I hope you'll miss me My suffering was constantly in the way Now it's gone, now I'm gone There's nothing left of me I hope you realize this wasn't easy I did this for our own good It's how it must be I said goodbye to you in the worst possible way How can you ever forgive me I know you can't forgive me How can you ever forgive me I know that no one can ever forgive me Forgive me Forgive me I'm gonna isolate myself Say that you need me, promise you'll always be there I'll isolate myself Say that you love me, promise you'll always be there Isolate myself Say that you need me, promise you'll never leave me I'll isolate myself Say that you love me, now that I'll never be there for you

Tie our maiden down Tear her limb from limb Her blood will save us all Imprison Hell itself Tie our maiden down Ignore her anguished screams There is no other way To fight unholiness Tie our maiden down You know what must be done Her blood is our last hope To end our suffering Tie our maiden down The ritual complete Her severed limbs we bring To our glory This is our last hope This is our time This is our only hope We do or die I am weak and impure My blood has failed I am not what you deserve I have failed you all I am weak, forgive me And condemn me to Hell Where I belong The ritual has failed Now everyone will die The gates of Hell released Calamity begins Your blood has failed us Your sacrifice for naught Your will to live Our undoing
4.
Fade Away 04:12
Nothing seems to matter now I'm barely here at all I try to climb a mountain That is simply way too tall I have no reason to stay here There's nothing left for me My only friend in this whole world Ensures my ecstacy I give up And I fade away To a place where I can't stay And I want to die While I get so fucking high Everything is ruined Living life from day to day Is such a fucking bore I wish I had the energy For simply wanting more I've made my choice My mind's made up It's time to say goodbye I'll go out screaming like I came in But this time I'll fly
5.
My life is over There's nothing left for me My days are over I've seen all there is to see I feel her haunting me Her presence will not leave me I feel her eyes watch me What can I do to sleep at night Her last words to me haunt me The sadness in her voice Her final words a whisper Before she let it flow She let it go My life is over There's nothing left for me My days are over I've seen all there is to see Her breath turns cold Her skin turns pale The color red is flowing Beneath her veil I feel my heart beating As I feel hers stop I feel my will to live Fade out with her

about

Who doesn't love a good ghost story? Here's an album of 5 ghost stories, primarily told from the ghost's point of view.

"Lament" is your classic 'I'm a WHAT now?' story of a ghost who's having trouble coming to grips with the fact that he is one.

"Isolate" is the story of a guy who locked himself in a room with his one true love -- the bottle -- and drank himself to death.

"Tie Our Maiden Down" is basically the story of the video game Fatal Frame (Project Zero), so, uh, spoiler warning, I guess.

"Fade Away" is your run-of-the-mill suicide anthem for a guy who wants to get so high that he'll never feel again.

"Beyond the Grave" is told from two perspectives: the verse is the husband coming home to find his wife dead in the tub with her wrists slashed, and the chorus are her final words to him.

Uplifting shit, isn't it? :D

My inspirations for this album were mainly gothic rock, very much in particular Paradise Lost, who I started listening to a lot after my grandfather died. So most of the tunes are of the low-to-mid tempo affairs.
