about

This is Sarsen's debut full-length. The album is an exploration of musical and lyrical themes developed by the band over their career, embracing elements of progressive rock, classic and modern heavy metal. Powerful rhythms set the background for brooding and wailing vocals, complex harmonies and searing guitar leads. Each carefully-crafted song carries individual weight, with lyrics discussing themes of loss, death, fantasy and horror.

Track Name: Forest of the Facade
Many came before the jury, the many came but one
The war of a thousand decades forged before the mighty sun
The star of the mighty fallen, In the rivers beats their hearts
While the mountains peak with eagles high, in the valley lurks the dark

No man treads this still ground
No creature nor god
Don’t be fooled by the stillness
In the forest of facade

Set your balls aside, start running for your lives
You're only wasting time
Let the children scream, believing it’s a dream
They’ll never know you lied
Track Name: Waiting
Falling, blasting, creating, reeling
Fatal mind-blow, forever bleeding
Running, dying, no time wasted
Another bastard, slowly created

When she speaks to me, father stares so blankly
Death creeps so slowly and whispers so faintly
Its never called cheating to wish for its mercy
Trapped in a circle of madness and waiting
Alone in my chair

Dripping fever, excitement tempts me
Daddy, crying, fulfill my needs
Taking last breath, withers, ending
Sorrow, my eyes, only pretending

Father is sleeping so peaceful and quiet
Gripping the pillow, the thrill cannot hide it
Fist clenches weakly as I breathe in rapture
Death as she’s lying, my heart, beating faster
Alone in my chair

Father is sleeping so peaceful and quiet
Gripping the pillow, the thrill cannot hide it
Fist clenches weakly as I breathe in rapture
Death as she’s lying, my heart, beating faster
Waiting
Track Name: Soul Hacker
He comes from grim smoke and hellfire
Lays waste to all humanity
Destruction is all that he asks for
King of death, hell, disease
Carries a strong fist of justice
Idle hands are the devil’s way
Give up your virgins and first born
For the blood is the price that you pay for life

Focused is times heeded warnings
Empty of lust, desires, memories
Blood is the true victims purchase
Killing everything that I see
Victims are counted as blessings
While the screams are signs of the fight
While the demons lie, defecating
Making their way through the night hunting life

No god shall answer your prayers
For Christ is with you no more
While the angels are silent in hiding
When the hacker comes reaping your door
No cross of light or divinity
Will save curse of your terrible fate
For remember when shadows are weeping
Soul hacker defines what is hate in life
Track Name: Imaginary Friend
Living alone in a place called misery
Things in a way turned around like they used to be
Learning my lessons from a book with an empty page
Been given a thousand signs

Empty room with a view
In a land called make believe
Crease in my thoughts like cracks in memories
I'm pushing on my walls of my mind to put up again
I tell ya, I'd tell it a hundred times

Feelings, feelings which I can't relate
Pushing, so long, time to ease the slate

Feeling frustration and my walls are closing in
Acquaintance to me, imaginary friend
Callus infused, sentiments of a different breed
Been crippled a million times

Excuses are plagues of rats in society
Leaving their trail of shit for me to clean, nevermore
I never once cared for your sick and your dying
I'd kill them a million times

Feelings, feelings which I can't relate
Pushing, so long, time to ease the slate
Track Name: Curse of Man
Told is the weakest hand that prays, my friend
Behold, the sharpest of the blades, till the end
As for she, the guardian of the truth you seek
And for he, the wildest of the minds, you believe

No, no, no cast the stone of fools
No, no, no hang the priest in rule
And go, go, go poison the well of men
And go, understand, and know that you'll live again

You'll hope that you'll find some peace of mind
What I leave here behind will be the last one to die
No, where you go, I shall never know
And your creed and your life will be cast aside
