mura19982 I waited for this album. And so, did the album meet the expectations? Well, not quite.
"Glow" lacks polish and completion - album feels like a bunch of different raw ideas, that are barely connected to each other. But, as I listened to it for 3 days straight, I realized, that from "Tempest" to "Zephyr" (included) I hardly judge everything, even though there are questionable moments, but the "Glow" track really stands up as the most chaotic "connection" of ideas.
Also don't like bad mixing work. Favorite track: Zephyr.

MetalJazzDnB One of the most dynamic, melodic death metal albums of the year - I own the Limited Edition, Orange Ghostly. Favorite track: Glow - Part 1: Resolution.

Kromheim Official Love this 2nd release, it really feels like Countless Skies are starting to develop their own proggy melo death style! Favorite track: Tempest.

1.
Tempest 05:06
Tempest I reach to you my father See me bound in chains Now time has granted me The language of the waves If I fall away Release me Will you hear my cries Through the dark Call me out Across the waves Guide my spirit And bring me home to you As I fall away Release me Can you hear my cries Through the dark
2.
Summit 06:01
Summit When climbing high Are bleeding vines Through changing words Forget before Oh empathy Don’t leave me now No, empathy I can’t be alone In falling eyes Unending night The sound of tears Where endings lie Arrive the torture And the pain tears through my mind Release an ocean From the storm that’s in the sky If fewer words between us are spoken They have to mean more As weeping vines that bind us are undone Remember before
3.
Moon 05:26
Moon Anguish, veiled in illusion Ascent at cost of compassion The mask that they wear bores in to their skin But each part, in time, will be stripped away Revealing the scars hidden within Until there’s nothing left… Reach beyond the light or Drift in to the dark
4.
Zephyr 07:28
Zephyr [ Part I ] Ripples upon the water A mirror for reality Reflecting an image of who I long to be As I stretch out my hand The light begins to fade Ripples upon the water Adrift in thought and reverie Reflecting an image A shadow that hides in me [ Part II ] Long have I travelled beneath the palest sun Nothing to guide me, no path ahead Searching for reason, for hope amongst this desolation Trusting that faith will set me free [ Part III ] Through adversity we find our reason Through the misery we find our hope And through this pain we find our strength As we let go we find ourselves Though this life was torn in two We’ll find that we were always one Take heart, brighter days will come
5.
Glow [ Part I – Resolution ] A wall, pieced together with fragments of words Was I too departed to see it grow? So far I move along, carried by the tide; But now I see the flow of which I have no control Each time you run away, Each time I pass the day Deep down in the echo And every time you leave me here, Every time you disappear, The quiet storm moves closer For now the memories return to face me Each time, I turn away abashed, ashamed Like frail larvae of weak facade, I prepare myself by focusing within For now I move along, carried by the tide...
6.
[ Part II – Awakening ] Build me up from ashes, Forge the iron rust Grow a virgin Eden From rich and fertile soil Shine on the ether in me (deep down in the echo), That turns the hope into change (deep down in the echo) As tides release their grip on shores, We cannot be on both sides of the ocean
7.
[ Part III – Reflection ] ‘Though the past lies ever trailing, It is never farther than a breath away. The years acquaint as teachers, Passing scholars of wisdom. Each time you withdraw, And thereupon repent, remember: You cannot start a new line Without lifting pen from page.’ Hope ignites the flame dormant for too long Free me from affliction so I can move on Mental confines of uncertainty Fall in the face of awakening As a new wall lay before me, I look back on how far I’ve come Reflecting from a new perspective Who I was and who I am The years are mentors, passing by me Lessons learned from things I’ve done I am the storm now, I am the tide and I know myself and that's enough Down in the void I was blind to the world But now I am free I let go Free from the echo, The world turns again And I find home

about
