A story about a native american tribe that sends a group of warriors to explore a misterious forest. A few days after the arrival, something starts to follow the warriors bringing them bad feelings and memories. At some point, they start to run out of water and food. In the end, only two came back to the camp, a warrior and the Chamane that tells the tale to the younger ones.


[Part I: The Forest]

Warriors of the Mother Tribe
Entering the dark void for a fight
We’ve not fear of voices, monsters or guns
We only want to give ourselves for loved ones.
At the third night of voyage
the spirits told good with our mission
And the night was beautifully at disposition
‘Till something started to trick us along
Guns were missing and animals silent
No more rivers into the woods,
a new endless nightmare...

Down, realized our minds going down,
downer, darker and doomed.
Hard, listen that screaming voices come so deadly and loud.
Worse, weather’s started going worse,
so cruel, so cold,
Such a freezing mystery...

One day the trees told us clear
“Must not go forward from here”
We ignored the voices with a laugh
Ingnored they had come from our own insides

At the sixth night of walking, felt
someone following us
Everytime we turned around to check
nothing was in our sight
Everything we heard gave us forlorn
Every memory brought alive as fear
Every vision leading us to cry
Madness taking control of our minds


[Part II: The Curse]

The sun will bring Death from the sky
We will wander alone
Our bodies will crawl around
Trapped between Wendigo's claw
With no water, hunger is law
One dies tonight two at dawn
Eat my flesh, so you survive
But as demons you will rise!

So dear child, olders and friends
Listen to this elder's pray
Rather die nor eat human flesh
Never be that monster's guest.

[Part III: The Reminder]

And I also was so tempted
Starvation you underestimate
The quick way to survive may not be better than Death....
From twenty just two reached the tribe
A coward that listened the wards
And a man that would grow up a counceller

Is the rovering evil in mankind
What provides the worst to our minds.
The wasted skill of dementia
That we had to fight against to stay alive!

So 4 years ago some people met to just play symphonic metal: Nightwish, Epica, Sirenia, After Forever, Leaves' Eyes covers where made... 'Till we started composing and wanted to give a shot to our own melodies. And here is the result.
We are not the usual "symphonic metal" band. We have a growler, a soprano and some keyboards... but you'll have to check us out to tell what mix of styles we have.
