David Yvinec First song: epic stoner heavy blues riffs with a beautiful melancholic break half way through. A great way to enter into the spirit of the album. This band is definitely one of my best recent discovery, and this song one of their best. Old bones are dancing shakingly all throughout. There is some kind of Paint It, Black energy and feel to the album (listen to North Road). Their blues is indeed not all doom, pain and suffering. It’s also groovy, full of feelings and of a welcome fighting spirit! Favorite track: THESE ARE OLD HANDS.

THESE ARE OLD HANDS The Wind tells stories Of those lost at sea As night is creeping closer A light in the Window And a song in your Heart I just want to come home I smell the earth And dream of the sea My days are getting shorter Three steps from the grave Two wishes from home The night is nearly over If fate would come To break my stride Before I reach the harbour Lay me down In the same cold ground That wore me to the bone Speak no words And shed no tears They will be lost forever Three steps from the grave Two wishes from home The night is nearly over Let the rains come To wash us all away Time to let go of these old hands of mine Raise your fists Towards the sky Days are slowly fading I curse the ground I walk upon Won’t carry me any longer Break the soil And dig a hole Go sit in it forever Three steps from the grave Two wishes from home The night is nearly over Let the rains come To wash us all away Time to let go of these old hands of mine

NORTH ROAD 08:52
NORTH ROAD I've seen the snow come and go Oh so many times before But the snow that now gathers I fear will lie forever Old man winter walks yet again Upon the North Road to the end I´ve set foot at last Upon this long North Road Every step is a prayer As I pay what is owed Old man winter walks yet again Upon the North Road to the end I talk to the mountains Of all my sorrows I tell them my regrets I sing them your name Old man winter walks yet again Upon the North Road to the end I know bones go brittle And that flesh always grows weak The years wield rough fists And it sure has a wicked streak How the sunny days lay lost Deep beneath the covers of snow Long forgotten sunshine Warms my heart as I go Oh o how the sunny days lay lost

WHEN THE LIGHT DIES Leave me in shadows When the light dies There is no place left for me to hide Oppgang: I give no helping hand I sure won’t teach you how to breathe When the light dies Oh when the light dies Leave me in shadows When the light dies Ref (det helt stille partiet): No such thing Will touch me anymore When the light dies To a long lost soul With a wanderer’s heart There is hope hidden somewhere in the dark I give no helping hand I sure won’t teach you how to breathe When the light dies Oh when the light dies Leave me in shadows When the light dies No such thing Will touch me anymore When the light dies Don’t wait for a morning That will never come Make peace with the dying of the light I give no helping hand I sure won’t teach you how to breathe When the light dies Oh when the light dies Leave me in shadows When the light dies No such thing Will touch me anymore When the light dies

LOW 08:49
LOW I’ll bury all You ever gave me I’ll bury all That you ever gave to me How the river flows It always pulls me How the river flows It pulls me down Low was the name you gave me One I carry with pride Low was the name you gave me I will carry it with pride In low places I’ll be In low places I’ll hide Lay me low Full fathom five Lay me low A feast for crows I know a winding road A scar across the land I know a winding road Cuts like a knife across the land Low was the name you gave me One I carry with pride Low was the name you gave me I will carry it with pride In low places I’ll be In low places I’ll hide

HOW STRANGE THE SILENCE How strange the silence Deep and timeless It lays heavy in the night time air All those voices Lost and waiting Echo through a windless night Words found wanting Words forgotten I treated my own words like slaves Oh silence How strange the silence When all is gone and taken away Speak from the heart Let the soul out Or bind your tongue and speak not at all Oh fire Sacred fire Your warmth is lost on these old bones So it all went And passed us by Those days are gone, oh so long gone Oh silence How strange the silence When all is gone and taken away

NEPTUNE BROTHERS You move like trouble down the mountain Dreams on the river A snake in the bloodstream Winds that make me shiver Keep your eyes on the horizon Hands on the lever Hide everything and everyone Bury it forever The mane of the mare you cling to Hair white as silver Fingers break and let go Fall out into winter Break the stone break the bone Go on swing the hammer Grind mountains to dust Choke life out of summer Settle down and settle up Pay what is owed Lay your hands upon the barrel Chop them off and go Tongue sharp as glass Cuts me over and over With the whip of a serpent Caress me like a lover
