Protean Shield - 'Mariner's Dream' (official lyric video)

Sail the oceans, sing your tales to the stars
Sing of the sons whose mothers abandoned to sea
Sing for my mother, as she waves me goodbye
Her face was broken but then I didn’t know why

Along came the tide, the ship is leaving port
Soon all I knοw, will be so far away
The bearded captain laughed and said
We’re never coming home
Salt and wind corrode my fledgling soul

Day and night, the fore mast I climb up high
No land is emerging to sight
And bad luck is in store down the line
Yet it is, the first time I feel so free
A mystery revealed to me, a mariner’s dream

Dreams are just nightmares with masks
Gathering clouds dipped in black
Crimson and vicious the sky bears the wrath
Of storm’s elemental attack

Shy we fly onwards stay the course and pretend
That this is a hardship we know that we are prepared
The first flash of lighting reflects only fear in our eyes
A jagged maw is gaping spewing the ocean’s tongue
Devours our will

Waves, black rising, ascent into darkness
Maelstrom pits are forming, descent in the sea’s abyss

Silent, this watery grave, is concealing the tears
I cry out of shame
The depths are now my fate
Mother, I won't be coming back

My son drowned in the sea
I feel it inside he won’t come to me
Just as his father lies in the deep
Both on a seabed they sleep

I should drown in the sea
I feel it inside together we’ll be
With husband and son I’ll lie in the deep
To rest with my loved ones in peace

Protean Shield
Νομίζω ότι το 2023 αποτελεί μία ιδιαίτερη και ξεχωριστή χρονιά όσον αφορά το Ελληνικό (επικό) metal με σειρά (καλών έως και εξαιρετικών) κυκλοφοριών. Οι Protean Shield ανήκουν σε αυτήν την κατηγορία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ τετραετίας, μας συστήνονται κάπως έτσι:

«Protean Shield delivers Epic Heavy Metal, adventurous and poetic, immersing the listener into sieges, raids full of revenge, heroic battles and far away travels, but also dark and romantic, bringing to life tales of despair, longing and eternal love»

...και είδαν -προ ημερών- το (ομώνυμο και υπέροχο) ντεμπούτο τους σε κυκλοφορία, με την No Remorse Records να μας λέει σχετικά:

«Recommended for fans of Eternal Champion, Wrathblade, Manilla Road and The Lord Weird Slough Feg, the debut full-length of Protean Shield is an elegant Epic Heavy Metal album, replete with frequent rhythmic shifts and frantic riffs, with a primary goal to create and offer a compelling storytelling.»
