Ioannis Valiakos One of those rare rock albums that show out of nowhere and you know they 'll stick with you for a long time. Ever since Eric (The General) shared a promo on the SRA, its melodies have sunk their hooks in me and they won't let go. It easily looks eye to eye with albums by Lowrider and All Them Witches and to prove me wrong you need to listen. Definitely a highlight of the month! And if you think that this is their debut, God knows what future releases we should expect from them. Brilliant stuff! Favorite track: Voyage\\The Great Sea.

1.
"Intro \\ Crossing the Rubicon" Just in case, this is not a war, catch your breath for more to come. Wash it all away, hold your breath, wait 'till the end, break the chains. Let your lost naked soul, shine bright like a star. All I know are empty words, know nothing, know nothing... Once it all begins, let the tears, guide your way. Awaken, from the dust of time, eyes red, take a breath, break the chains. This is a war. This is a war? Yeah, and I’m gonna fight.
2.
"The Oath of a Fire Bringer" Come and see the fire and never lie to me. For every word I take for granded, a serpent lies within. and so forth... and so on... Wake me up, from this world, I saw all faces, became the One. An ever-living fire, Low and behold, strife within the spiral, is never ending... Come and take the fire, there is truth in me. For every breath and storming waters, a never-ending spin. and so forth... and so on... Wake me up, from this world, I know all faces, became the One. An ever-living fire, Low and behold, strife within the spiral, is never-ending...
3.
"Voyage\\The Great Sea" Get underway, whistle for the wind. Dead in water... Between the devil and the sea. I'll take the wind out of his sails. Dead in water... Between the devil and the sea. "Oh Great Sea, Your voice I hear, I seek strength, to fight my fear." Sacred waters, embrace my path to oblivion. Between the devil and the sea, My sacred nakedness is free, Between the devil and the sea.
4.
"Weight of the World" One step at a time, never was blind. the wisdom I own, hold the weight of the world. Stuck deep with my feet on the ground, cheat Death with a smile, came here for a million times, lose myself... lost myself. One step closer atop, tomorrow I’ll fall, fall on my sword, hold the weight of the world. Stuck deep with my feet on the ground, cheat Death with a smile, came here for a million times, lose myself... lost myself. Crushing truth, defy your fate, vanish fear, live for today. We build our life for tomorrow, yet tomorrow bring us to Death, let the light guide your sorrow and forget that we'll die one day. Ride the pale horse...
5.
"The Bounds of a Fire Bringer" With my soul, pictured visions untold, sail the seas, against the wind. In the water, who sees the tide? Blessed are the poor, I'm a madman or a fool? Kneel to no one. All I know is nothing, echoes spinning my head... Scream and shout, lost and found, grace your mound, break these bounds! Bring the fire! Echoes spinning my head... With my soul, pictured visions untold, ascend the cliffs, against the odds. On the mountain, transcend my doubts. Between the devil and me, all the secrets unveiled, Kneel to no one. All I know is nothing, echoes spinning my head... Scream and shout, lost and found, grace your mound, break these bounds! Bring the fire! Echoes spinning my head...
6.
"Remains of the Holy" I am the moon, the sun, but's not enough... I hold the crown, the spear, but's not enough... Thought i made it all so clear, is endless but will last? He once was, now is here and yet to appear. First of all, cast the stone for I have sinned. All i know... who's without a sin. Somebody wiped my tear, but's not enough... and told me not to fear, but's not enough... Thought I made it all so clear, questions hiding my path. He once was, now is here and yet to appear. First of all, cast the stone for I have sinned. All i know... who's without a sin. On the eleventh hour, on judgement day, I will let you run but there's no escape. Back and forth, on a timeless race, I will let you run but there's no escape.
7.
"The Same River" In constant change, but still remains, the same river rolling on. In constant change, oppose the same, a world of words keeps moving on. Well, nothing matters, nothing to be told. That is to say, unity will fail, if all existence starts to fade. But, in constant change, we still remain, a world of words which is rolling on. Well, nothing matters, nothing to be told. “You could not step twice into the same rivers. For other waters are ever flowing on to You!” In constant change, but still remains, the same river rolling on.
8.
"We the People\\No Friends, but the Mountains" “We the people of this earth, establish injustice, ensure destruction of others, provide pain, promote our welfare and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves... to our posterity. Do ordain and establish our domination on this world!” Ferocious fight, we're loosing control... Your twisted mind, is what we stand for... What i am? Answer! What I'll do? Don't you? I can fall up from the sky... Dirty hands, blooded hearts, I will hunt you, I will cut you down! Ferocious fight, we're loosing control... Your twisted mind, is what we stand for... A child appears. Why you praying? I had fall from the sky... “Do not wait, be free. Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better. Be free for this chance to be better, and sing for Freedom... No Friends, but the Mountains.
9.
"Blow Your Trumpet" Blow your trumpet hard enough, who sows the wind, will reap the squall. Sometime, you said... we'll all be gone. Blow your trumpet hard enough, who seeks the truth, shall find a lie. Sometimes, you said... we pay the price. So I'm waiting, with a secret untold, there is nothing to hide, in my lonesome soul. Blow your trumpet hard enough, the more you hide, the more will come. Sometime, you said... we'll all be gone. So I'm waiting, with a secret untold, there is nothing to hide, in my lonesome soul. Seek and you'll find! Seek and you'll find.

about

Running time: 51:54

This recording is a chapter based and in a philosophical way concept album. The songs fulfill the vision of a world that's spinning through the wheels of confusion. We hope that the listener will feel familiar with this collection of moments and actions delivered by humanity the years of the pandemic filtered through notes and words.
