Krzysztof Wicher Great album. Heavy but intelligent.
This year's performance at the Bloodstock was one of highlights of the festival.

Marcin Wielewski Excellent progressive groovy metal, flavoured with folkish elements. Thank You Konrad Szejdewik for pointing me to this album. Favorite track: Tarku Shavel.

Michael Henaghan The absolute definition of progressive, this LP blew me away upon the first listen with the complex, expanisve music it contains. Opener 'Chronosiam' and also 'Tarku Shavel' takes a number of strands of hard rock and metal and creates a completely new alloy, Boss Keloid embarking on the sort of eclecticism and innovation that reminds of mid 90's Faith No More. Watching the band perform the whole anthem-laden record on Youtube only reinforces how brilliant of an achievement it really is. Favorite track: Tarku Shavel.

Track Name: Chronosiam
Your ending, is your beginning
Transcending, suppressing limits

All night, we wait for the sunlight. We dream in the sun all night. We live in the sun all night
Feeling, high in the sunrise. I live for the sun to rise. I wait for the sun to blind
Freeing, to live in the sunlight. We’re free in the sun’s hot light. We live in the sun all night
Burning, ablaze in the sunrise. I burn when the sun shall rise, and wait for the sun to blind
All night we live in the sunlight. We live in the sun all night. We’re high from the sun all night

Let’s sail, rhythm of waves. We shine, we discover
Let’s sail through barriers. In sight the lights still breathing
Let’s sail incoming waves. Out of sight, undercover
Push through the barriers. Inside the light keeps healing
Let’s sail far away. Redefined like no other
Fly above the barriers. Never question the life you’re leading

Closed eyes tripping over my tongue. I’m alone, all alone, king of my own island
All the negativity has grown. Be myself, by myself. Try dislocating from the hollow
I’d never be who I’d be, if it wasn’t for me
Digging up the pieces from the dirt. Now I know what I know I’m......

Let’s sail, rhythm of waves. We shine, we discover
Let’s sail through barriers. In sight the lights still breathing
Let’s sail incoming waves. Out of sight, undercover
Push through the barriers. Inside the light keeps healing
Let’s sail far away. Redefined like no other
Fly above the barriers. Never question the life you’re leading
Track Name: Tarku Shavel
Day after day I take it in my stride
Pass through the haze that taints my life
Sing to the rhythm that keeps me alive

Time to restart the song that was certainly over
Smash a dent in the face of it all
There’s no fun in the game if you’re always the winner

I’m with you wherever you go
You won’t be alone, never on your own
Trust in my own belief
Make my own philosophy

Day after day I open up my eyes
To all the misplaced pieces of my life
I let the seasons change but not my smile

Time to restart the song that was certainly over
Smash a dent in the face of it all
There’s no fun in the game if you’re always the winner

Time to restart the song that was certainly over
Smash a dent in the face of it all
There’s no fun in the game if you’re always the winner
Track Name: Peykruve
That song you’re singing, it will reverberate forever now my friend Nothing for granted, so you set sail upon the back of a never-ending wave
You faced your mountain, your roots run deep, and the reach of your passion never ends

Days roll by and things get easier to mend
Time is nothing when your life on this depends
Gifted us with memories of the way you were

Never the same

You got it all

No time for hiding, no time for sitting in the dark when the life is there to live
Regretting nothing, just you take what you can, pass it on it’s yours to give
Positive thinking, it is the only medication that you’ll need

The edge gets closer, this interference, well it’s on your shoulder
Let’s take those chances now

Nailed upon the cross you carry, I get the feeling that you’re done with holding all the weight
Deviate from all that worry, I get the feeling that I’m watching as you fly away
Track Name: Jromalih
We keep on falling into a slumber
Painting the world from the back of your eyes
There’s only one way I rest

I’m like a bomb imploding
Everyone runs when there’s war in my head
I’ll keep on being that burden
Searching the sky with no time for regret

Look behind the willow tree, you will see it all
Hid behind the willow tree, answers to it all

Yes, I saw something, no one should see
But I keep searching, yes, I’ll keep searching
And I’ll keep living the life I Iead
Nothing can change me, no one could change me
Penetrating, through this disease
Your time can save me, your thoughts could save me

Not yours, your saviour, you’ll get the message when it’s over
Starting, to wonder, we might be better going under
Provocation, it is my only stimulation

Growing the war in my head

Look behind the willow tree, you will see it all
Hid behind the willow tree, answers to it all
Track Name: Lokannok
Sit with revolution
Personally, I’d like a little more
Fight with my reputation
Turn my light down low

Into the centre, the entrance of a miracle
Entry denied
Separation
The waking of a legend
Take your barrier down

Have you ever really hated something that you should love?

Unconditional
Overloaded fascination

You could wish it all away, sell for what it’s worth
Banish everything away, redesign
Examine every word you say, silence is gold
Try and find a better way, realign
You’re carrying a massive weight, such a heavy load
Something is about to break, overload

Now you’ve started, you must see this out until the end
Now you’re standing in the path of revolution
Now you’ve started, you must see this out until the end
Track Name: Griffonbrass
Hypnotised by the fabricator
Will he swim, will he fly
I’ve been stranded alone
Trading stories with the true believers
Who is wrong, who is right
Let your mind decide

Freedom is commercialised
Excavate, and open wide

There is no ending
Vicious circle

Liberation, release us from the challenger
Deviation, the view belongs to everyone

Customised by the fabricator
Will you swim, or will you die
Made the lie your own

Spreading stories like the true believer
There’s no wrong if you’re right
Let their minds decide

Freedom is commercialised
Excavate, and open wide

Liberation, release us from the challenger
Deviation, the view belongs to everyone

The view belongs to no one
