sinisetkimallus Although these guys aren't doing something exactly new (sounds like a more techy mix of a cross between Lamb of God and Textures) they definitely shed new light on this stylistic niche. I am personally impressed with this EP, especially for a debut, Akshara are showing a massive amount of promise. Hopefully they will stick to their guns and refine their craft - and of course - put out a debut full length as soon as possible. It's a shame such good music is so criminally underrated and unknown. Favorite track: Ethereal Damnation.

The day has come The time to gather No longer will he be lonesome Without a father A dream he had for years A philosophy without tears Craving since he understood There can never be only good The antique wisdom will be unleashed Only to those who, for it seek Be it with good or bad intentions Only the mountain knows absolution This holy place has no shelter It's priests know no mercy The path is not for the weak It's guardians are the immortal The brothers come together As they prepare the journey The prayers reverberate Questioning existence for ever The never-ending wait has ended Death is not an option Failure has no definition Glory does not exist Reason is lost in the mist Lost in the mist Chopping every head off And slicing countless limbs Ramming through every soul Like they never existed Never mind the losses The mountain is worth the price Leave the bodies behind And don't you dare look back Once no more life can be seen He realizes the dust and the emptiness All the promises are in sight But everything he built has vanished

Praise and worship The ones with no remorse Hate and demonize Those with honor and dignity Is this the way you want to live Amongst the weak and the useless Taking everything for granted Your ambitions left stranded Barking when you're lonely Envying another's happiness Never will you learn real solidarity As you die in another's pettiness Cherishing only what's on the surface Anything else is imaginary menace Always last to cross the line Philosophy is not only words Always first to step in line You are amongst the herd Praise and worship The ones with no remorse Hate and demonize Those with honor and dignity Turning seeds into crops Isn't part of your plan Making something out of nothing Isn't something you understand Ready to do anything In your own interest To die for your own sacred image Kill to look like the wisest Although you are but a savage Playing pretend with your friends When, in fact, you have only enemies Cherishing only what's on the surface Anything else is imaginary menace Always last to cross the line Philosophy is not only words Always first to step in line You are amongst the herd As many have good reasons And other's don't have a choice You live through every season Without anything to rejoice Accepting to be the rotten egg Hypocrite to the core You're the one that begs You egocentric little whore Your name is on the list Of those who will hang A list you made up yourself In your own slang Cherishing only what's on the surface Anything else is imaginary menace You are the collateral damage The result of today's mentality

Playground 04:26
The soil we were raised on Stolen without rights The culture we live upon Profaned by the modern knights History buried in front of our own eyes The carnage had begun in silent lies Living for decades in unwanted peace Fearing the day it would cease The moment of grace had arrived Along with it's sibling called despair Division and confusion would start to thrive Innocent souls vanishing in the air Holy land for the blasphemous Red carpet for the infamous Playground for the cheater Altar for the sinister The soil we were raised on Stolen without rights The culture we live upon Profaned by the modern knights Endless lost battles wasting innocent spirits Whispering nightmare from the gods When ethics lose all meaning in irrational Bloodshed And unjustifed murder becomes ordinary conduct Holy land for the blasphemous Red carpet for the infamous Playground for the cheater Altar for the sinister The soil we were raised on Stolen without rights Silent Lies! History buried in front of our own eyes The carnage had begun in silent lies Living for decades in unwanted peace Fearing the day it would cease

Warm Waters 04:09
Immersed in warm waters Dusk hugging the eternal As if it were beyond infnite And none of it seems fictional You live and let die Never fearing a goodbye You carpe diem the fuck out of it Forgetting the onset has end to it The ritual becomes conventional As the goodness fades away The artifacts become irrational As your feelings start to betray Gripping onto the void Trying to give a meaning To every choice you made To every step ill-made Hanging onto insignifcance Not acknowledging the absence Slowly rotting from within Becoming some harlequin The ritual becomes conventional As the goodness fades away The artifacts become irrational As your feelings start to betray Until the waters turn to ice The dusk becomes pitch black Time has rolled the dice You'll never be going back Warm waters Warm waters turn into ice Warm waters

They said life isn't fair But too short to live for prayers Don't believe what you are told Masses grow with blindfolds Hell is full of people Who think they deserve heaven Thick air, dirt and dust Truth too fake to trust Feeling like I'm laid to waste In the shadows of the dreams I chased I should know That people never change And as soon as they lead the dance They find new ways to lie Talk big, pretend and deny I guess I just found my silence In the screams of the resilience Once you've seen The color of your fears All doubts and sorrow disappear Trust gets you killed, love gets you hurt Turning your hopes into dust You say it's all in my head Fate always had a plan ahead I should know That people never change And as soon as they lead the dance They find new ways to lie Talk big, pretend and deny They said that life isn't fair Thick air, dirt and dust Truth too fake to trust Feeling like I'm laid to waste In the shadows of the dreams I chased I should know That people never change And as soon as they lead the dance They find new ways to lie Talk big, pretend and deny I guess I just found my silence In the screams of the resilience They said life isn't fair But too short to live for prayers Don't believe what you are told Masses grow with blindfolds Hell is full of people Who think they deserve heaven
