Open the book of human lifes Myths of all what's been Let the fairy tales burn bright Every answer is there for you to find Whispers of evil written down Mystical raves are hidden Neither of them is yours by now Gather your wisdom, let it out It's your own story Compose it, you're a poet In your own colors You already have the power No turning back It's time to Get what you wanted No matter what others may do Take off tonight Leave the past in behind You're breaking through Look around just one more time What have you seen and what went by There is no boredom 'cross the Path that you have run through all your life Take the feather, buy your ink Tell about your right to think Complete the book of myths That form the history, tell the sacred truth

Fill The Sky 03:24
When time and space lose sense of matter When all around is painted grey Behind deceptive sounds of life You'll simply hurry and go astray Remind yourself the only rule Life is today, there's no other chance So think of everything you do Before you lose your final glance End it all All the duels when you fight yourself Dare to go Further than anyone else Fill the sky With the wind and sun, the rain and ice Empty hopes Won't truly satisfy your soul tonight Are you ready to die? (Won't die today) Have you done what you could? (Others already did) If you continue to lie (Life's painted grey) Is your life as it should? (Death is not to omit) Till you fall Nothing's gone Move or stay End it all All the duels when you fight yourself Dare to go Further than anyone else Fill the sky With the wind and sun, the rain and ice Empty hopes Won't truly satisfy your soul tonight Fill the sky

I'm tired of all this theater Lies are all around And disguise The pride is just a mask The face in your mirror Devouring your soul And I see You don't know where to go Watch, all your life is poisoned with selfishness Time to throw all the masks away Deny all your pride and show what you really are It's time to return from the grey! You've seen them all your life The faces of people Refusing their essence And living a lie Let your spirit arise You'll be living eternally In the deeds of the past Show the truth Watch, all your life is poisoned with selfishness Time to throw all the masks away Deny all your pride and show what you really are It's time to return from the grey! Don't you see the madness Inside of you? I see you feel abandoned In all what you do Now when you're looking at me I see crystal eyes Are you scared? Then swallow all your pride! I'll help you arise Watch, all your life is poisoned with selfishness Time to throw all the masks away Deny all your pride and show what you really are It's time to return from the grey!

Vivid 06:17
We're heading for the dawn to the place where the sun goes down speeding up our wheels going far into the deep unknown

Endless Sun 04:02
Gaze into the future of the world Speak to me if you know what is foretold From peace into the battlefield But now I see, what you've concealed You're with me, my brother And you know all, what matters As long as we're united There's no one who can fight us Remember why you came here There's no chance to betray me Once and for all We'd reach to the endless sun You've tried to betray me, but you failed I'm not a fool, I know my way Now I see you crawling on your knees But is it worth to believe?

Sunset 04:04
Every sunset shows a scar of living I recall what my mother always told Son, your days have just begun, believe me Now a piece of magic I behold Taking its lead Mighty sunset, cross the limit Throw the veil Show your beauty to the age of human Light my way, I want to see it Catch my pride and let it fly Just imagine every time the nightfall takes its turn Another story's end has come, another waiting for the dawn In the dark, the dreamers glide recalling what has been Longing for new fables to begin Tempting the soul

Mysterizer 07:37
O-oh-oh-oh Mysterizer! On the edge of the dawn Morning is coming, again the past vanished in light And so it may be right now Witness beautiful skies Remember, all what is given remains just for once Now it's time to redecide Rule or bow Cause the future is now And you'll never ever know what he'll plan to bring It's all unseen It's all unclear Running down a spiral You can ask him what it all means let it right or wrong It's all unseen It's all unclear Now as you know who you are Buzy with making up plans for what is to come But he has an eye on you All your wins and mistakes They follow your trace till the end And there's nowhere to hide This he has foretold for you The Mysterizer! Cause the future is now And you'll never ever know what he'll plan to bring It's all unseen It's all unclear Running down a spiral You can ask him what it all means let it right or wrong It's all unseen It's all unclear Go your way, find your place Even if it takes the days That you have on earth Troubles will fade away All he told - you obey You will see - it's worth You're alive! Pictures you haven't seen Will awake you in the night Nightmares of your fearful life All you see is what he shows to your eyes So you have the choice now Think of it one more time Staying as a fool alive Or making it as you decide Remember, every day your end is at hand! Ride as thunder rolling deeper through the night Days are coming, clouds are burning faster, at the speed of light Now I see you broke the chains of living a fearful life Cause all you make is sacrifice to what I've told you, now stayin' alive!

To The Land 05:18
Storyteller: A ship is sailing through the night Inside a raging storm The sailors gather all their might They're standing strong Ten thousand nights upon the sea Through winter rain and summer breeze Another tumult of the waters Is to survive Stand all as one Evil is yet to come Sailors: Orders, captain, we're in your hands Orders, lead us safe to the land again Captain: Sailors keep calm, facing the storm for another time Trust in my voice, hear my command! Storyteller: We're free, but from a ship there's no way to flee Caught by the sea inbetween the storm Stand tall, and you'll see the light of dawn once again Beware, my friends, if you are close to death Don't hesitate to reach out your hand Until you sail, you are moving on To the land... Sailors: Even if madness will try Tearing our souls apart Even through harshest nights Nothing corrupts our hearts Side to side It was our choice Captain: Heart to heart You just believe in my voice!

Anytime you lie awake Countless memories appearing Imagine every second run Another day is slowly gone Close your eyes and you will see Thoughts are flying always free By the time you see a rose In a second there'll be gardens of Eden Let it grow Make a show Dream of everlasting hope Of the words with thousand meanings Scenes your mind just barely copes Spread the boundaries of being As you close your eyes you see Thoughts are flying always free By the time you see a rose In a second there'll be gardens of Eden New secrets lead you Breathe and you'll feel it Believe me Let it grow Make a show

Cold [Bonus] (free) 03:30
Standing with my back against the wall Standing with my back against the wall It's cold, cold Day, night, fades to dawn Now the fire breathing dragon I have nursed by my side is turning cold One night, blinding light Felt the necklace with a golden heart get cold Against the wall, against the wall, it's cold Why can't this make me warm on winter's nights Maybe your heart has stone-cold gold inside Dancing with my back against the wall Dancing with my back against the wall And again Why can't you make me warm on winter's nights Maybe your heart has stone-cold gold inside Unless you feel the fire deep inside A golden heart won't keep you warm at night But when the memory has a face no more And the days are getting longer When all the words unspoken die away Believe the wisdom written on the walls Maybe the road ahead is golden The white thunderbird will drive away, fly away, fly away Why can't you make me warm on winter's nights Maybe your heart has stone-cold gold inside Unless you feed the fire deep inside A golden heart won't keep you warm at night

about

Finally! The fourth Powersquad album is ready to be released.
It took about 4 years to make it happen. At some point, I even thought that it's better to close this project and put all material into the Majesty Of Revival catalog.

I started to figure out with ideas and riffs somewhere in September 2016, after Majesty Of Revival's "Dualism" release. Since we had supporting gigs for Dualism I just collected melodies until December. Later, the first single "Vivid" released with me on vox. But honestly, I wanted someone else to perform vocals on this album, so I started negotiations with several singers but ended up with nothing due to stylistic disagreements. I really wanted to do a good Power Metal album, but put something fresh on it, since most of Power Metal releases of past 10-15 year sounds the same. "Shrine of the Wanderer" was full of experiments and listening to this album now I not that happy with the result, xD
So, I tried to play with drum patterns, riffs and melodies during composing "Mysterizer', but not leaving Prog/Power Metal frames!
Most of 2017 I spent as a session musician in different bands and produced the next MOR album, along with the release of the second Korzo album. Fortunately, I was involved in producing debut Toni Lucifer's album "Mr. Freaky" and meet their bass player Vitalii Popfalushi, who also turned out to be a great vocalist! So we did one song "To The Land", I also commissioned him to write lyrics. And after hearing the result we definitely know that it works out perfectly!
The singer was found, and the next step was the keyboards! I sent a message to Ruslan for keyboard arrangements, but unfortunately, he was busy with lots of stuff and agreed to help me with the one song. So, I decided to record keyboards for the rest of the album by myself. Richard Andersson from Time Requiem/Majestic/Adagio/Space Odyssey sent me a lead preset for good keyboard sound, so I really thankful to him for the addition to this release especially!
A few months later I met keyboard virtuoso Maestone, who plays in MOR nowadays, and he agreed to help me with keys on "Fill The Sky"!
Another story with "Gardens Of Eden". Vladimir Yakubovsky sent me a message at the end of December 2019. I didn't hear from him for a while after his departure from MOR (except for a few meetings in Kyiv). He was asked me to join another band Monumental, so we come together in my studio in January and recorded a ballad "Gardens Of Eden" during the making of debut Monumental album #Purification. It was super exciting to work with him again because this guy is an excellent composer and an old friend of mine!
We finished everything by adding extra vocals by Toni Lucifer's singer Antonio Finchman, who perfectly fits into the overall picture of the album!

So, I had a lot of time to compose and think about all the songs on this opus, along with making a top-notch production. Some tracks like "Fill the Sky", "Return From The Grey" and "Mysterizer" sound really crazy and not typical for the Power Metal genre! But I tried to put something fresh, not just standard "verse-chorus-verse-chorus" pattern. I hope you'll enjoy this one!
I also attached lyrics for each song, so you can read and get inspired while listening.
Stay safe and take care!
