Life Artist - "Of Lambs And Lions" (audio)

These days, they seem to be endless
far away, cannot feel my inner self
In this place, alone and defenseless
I’m hiding in a shell, cause can't bear the pain
But you gave me new perception
And I knew: “This is a new beginning!”
I was torn, now I´m picking up the pieces
New horizons, I´m slowly coming back to live

Save your soul - I was so close to the edge
Save your soul - To end these wars in my head
Save your soul - A light that is shining on me
Save your soul - God's children shall be free
Mind Control, to make you whole
Until you know who I am

I am your energy, I want you to follow me
So come to the places they'll never see in their apathy
I am the remedy, your mind is an enemy
so behold your death and keep marching for victory,
Fulfilling the prophecy, we’re killing our enemies
So come, human race ain't never see their tragedy
I am the remedy, glorious supremacy,
so come, catch your breath and lay all of your trust in me

My heart was filled with sorrow
Despair my invisible friend
But this promise of tomorrow
Will make me change
I can change, rearrange
and the time that I can borrow has boundless range

I make you bleed, just like sheep
The poisoned seed, I must proceed
I break the spine, of mankind
So cross the line to your decline
Twisted lies and lullabies
Blinded eyes, you're paralyzed
Your burning soul, is my control
Depravity, my only goal

And again, my life`s a shattered zone of broken pieces
And I know, sad spirits turn toward the dead
I stare into the frozen light of my prison cell
Dreams die, as I walk along a dead-end street
I was blind, hoped you save my soul from drowning
Paralyzed by the anguish of a torn mind
Heaven’s will, just the obsession of a madman
I was brainwashed, I wish I could just turn back time

Save your soul - I was so close to the edge
Save your soul - To end these wars in my head
Save your soul - A light that is shining on me
Save your soul - God's children shall be free
Mind Control, to make you whole
Until you fall

If I could turn back the time, back to the roots of my crimes
I was content to be blind, how could I do this?
this question tortures my mind, but I cannot rewind
I’m leaving ashes behind, how could I do that?
I should rather be dead, there’s something's wrong with my head
I must have been totally mad, to pull the trigger
The loss of humanity, a pledge of insanity
A tool of conspiracy, how could I do that to you?

My heart was filled with sorrow
Despair my invisible friend
But this promise of tomorrow
Will make me change
I can change, rearrange
and the time that I can borrow has boundless range

I make you bleed, just like sheep
The poisoned seed, I must proceed
I break the spine, of mankind
So cross the line to your decline
Twisted lies and lullabies
Blinded eyes, you're paralyzed
My control, like a black hole
My deadly goal: Your burning soul!


Ο δίσκος των Life Artist "Lifelines"
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους Life Artist μετά από τυπικά πέντε, αλλά ουσιαστικά 29 χρόνια! Ο διάδοχος του ντεμπούτου της Γερμανικής prog metal μπάντας ("A Diary of Inner Visions" 1992) τιτλοφορείται "Lifelines" κι είχε προγραμματισθεί να "βγει" στις 27 Αυγούστου σε cd από την Ragnarök Records, αλλά η ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας πήγε -για τεχνικής φύσεως λόγους- μερικές ημέρες παραπίσω (μέσα Σεπτεμβρίου).

Οι Life Artist σχηματίσθηκαν το μακρινό 1989 και διατηρήθηκαν ενεργοί για μία πενταετία, μέχρι το 1994. Εκείνη την χρονιά συνέθεσαν και ηχογράφησαν τον δίσκο "Land(e)scapes Within a Building", το οποίο αποτύπωνε την διάθεση του συγκροτήματος να στραφεί σε instrumental δρόμους (χωρίς φωνητικά δηλαδή).

Η εταιρεία τους ήταν αντίθετη και οι Life Artist διαλύθηκαν. Επανήλθαν το 2012 και μετά από ένα demo ("Land(e)scapes Within a Building" 2015, το album που δεν είχε "βγει" στα 90ς) κι ένα single ("Antisocial Networks" 2016) έφθασε η στιγμή για το δεύτερο full length album τους, υπό τον τίτλο "Lifelines". Στον δίσκο συμμετέχει σχεδόν όλη η "παλαιά φρουρά" (συν τον drummer των Poverty's No Crime, Bleeding, Level Fields κλπ)...

Ragnarök Records: «"Lifelines" is a musical roller coaster ride through various musical genres. While the foundation is still varied Progressive Metal, the band dares to venture into other genres such as Death Metal, Djent, classic Progressive Rock, Thrash and even jazzy and classical sounds appear on the album. Ragnarök Records is incredibly proud to be able to present you this remarkable album as the 25th label release. For every Prog Metal fan this album is an essential purchase!»

Bio: «Life Artist is a Progressive Metal band from Germany, possibly well-known from their presence in the early 1990ties. After the success of their first Demo "Faith" (1991) and tour support for Psychotic Waltz and Gypsy Kyss they had an album release in 1992 ("A Diary Of Inner Visions").

Life Artist toured and played with bands like Psychotic Waltz, Mekong Delta, Sieges Even, Deathrow, Gypsy Kyss, Siren, Accu§er, Battlefield or Megace. In 1993 the band wanted to pursue an instrumental direction and recorded the demo tape “Land(e)scapes Within a Building” in 1994.

In 2012, after they recognized the Psychotic Waltz reunion, founding members Ingo Holzhauer and Marco Witte decided to reanimate Life Artist as a studio project. In the following years also the former members Frank Jauernick and Dirk Eckhard joined the project along with Poverty`s No Crime drummer Andreas Tegeler.

In May 2016 Life Artist recorded their first new song called "Antisocial Networks, which finally appeared exclusively on the Metalliance Vol. 2 sampler in early 2017. At the same time, the band published a video for the song on YouTube. The self-recorded album "Lifelines" was completed in May 2021.

The mastering was carried out by Matt Korr in the Red Roof Studio Loftsound in July 2021. The second Life Artist album "Lifelines" will be available for purchase on August 27, 2021 via Ragnarök Records.»
