Earth met sky In a place yet unchanged by time Silence through heights can be heard As peace roams high Fortress of mist and peaks Nature gave to man contemplation Leading to divine inspiration Mystic land Sowed a seed of wisdom in man Leading one's mind to embrace A truthful life Fortress of mist and peaks Nature gave to man contemplation Leading to divine inspiration Tall Beyond clouds, they stand Ridges Where the world began Throughout summits reside Reclusive, hate less minds
2.
Being left soul-abandoned, facing south As a new born one Seeds of compassion, shall be found The oracle's trance told mystical signs Incarnation's quest Leading towards the rising sun To the lake of visions For answers, they will seek Staring peacefully Omens through the waters Amongst majestic peaks Letters, clearly seen Ah - Ka - Ma Auspicious journey Foreshadowed signs revealed Guiding prophetically Omens, to be answered A young child, they will meet Chosen, shall he be? To the lake of visions For they answers, they will seek Staring peacefully Omens to be answered A young child, they will meet Chosen, shall he be?
3.
Hate-filled mind Wounds left unhealed Through time Hate-filled life Scars left from words Through time Thrown, far, high Lost arrows, one forgets Heart gone blind Drowned oneself in regrets Strained... The string of pain Bowed in causality Sadness remains Peace... Won't be obtained As veils of ignorance, hatred retains Storm of arrows through karma Seeking light through samsara
4.
Onward to reach the wheel of time A path of solitude Embraced humbly Hands, face and knees against the ground Prostrations for existence to come Winds of perpetuity Through sails of vacuity Shores of enlightenment Are wished and found Sand Mandala of the enlightened mind Sand Mandala Pure wisdom, one, shall find Kalachakra Disclosing mystic hands Kalachakra Splendors of colored sands Soon of this work art shall be In the hands of ephemerality Dismantled, will be The wheel of time Quiet intensity The sands are poured at sea Waves of enlightenment Are blessed and found

Clouds made of fear Roved by the sky as the enemies Chased the sun away from the their land Blackened, got, the snow, As the footsteps by enemies Chased peace away From their land Hope and light, Snow lion brings Through wisdom Hate and lies, Dragon infuses into freedom The lands of snow being invaded by enemies Shrines and beauties dressed up in ruins One can't believe Any words said by enemies Cultural invasion begins Suspicious walls Prison of glass Freedom is now stuck Behind the bars of past Curse.... uprising curse Enemies of compassion Despotic thirst Waves of hate... undertowed Tragic fate,,,,, sinking Waves of hated... undertowed Mourning braves... drowning
7.
Burn Strings tied to their lives now burn Burn Ropes tied around their hands shall burn Stuck in time Help being blind Desperation rises Starve for light Fed with lies Passion for life imprisoned Tears Ashes from tears, on hope's face, runs Lost Flame in peace's heart was long time lost Ember's voice Wisdom's choice Freedom, one aspires Glimpse of hope Gone as smoke Freedom reached through fire Walls raised by oppression, Yet invisible Down, they can't be torn Flames lit by repression Burning silence, one cannot ignore Blazing cries, hatred resents Pain leads to soul's deliverance Drifting from hands of contempt Fire led to soul's resilience

Absconders 09:08
Walls of tears Confined our lives and dignity Hushed in fear The peaceful days are gone As memories Invasion kept us prisoners Nails of scorn Were driven through those masks That made us strangers Their anger kept us prisoners Doors of stone Concealing truth for years Silently Days of fear Are carving path for us to take Mournful years Could never wilt our hopes In freedom's sake Escaping from this misery Darkness shall unfurl its wings And gives us all the answers Each footstep made with bravery Dreadful chains Are breaking from our feet Fee, we'll be. In time, One's fate finds peaceful grounds In sight, One's eyes triggers and shoots In pain, One's fates finds crimson grounds In vain, One's eyes captured the truth
9.
Time could never heal our pain Quietly loud Our sadness resounds Hope could never heal our soul Tragically lost Our voices Were turned to silence Prayers could never save ourselves Strangers, we are To our land.....now, a prison Peace wished to our enemies Their eyes being shut Our voices Were turned to silence Non-violent way to misery, had led All of what we are Is now hanging by a thread All we did was pray No freedom left to speak Captive as their prey confined within our peaks How shall we be remembered through the course of history? As strengthless beings......? Who chose submission As their way to be.........

about

GORGUTS, one of death metals most revered and influential bands, has returned! From their beginnings as one of the most-acclaimed bands in the genre’s first wave, through their growth into a unique and wildly-progressive entity, the Montreal-based quartet has cast a long shadow of influence over extreme metal that reverberates to this day. On their brand-new full-length ’Colored Sands’, their first new album in almost twelve years, the band (helmed by founder Luc Lemay) builds off the groundwork laid by its earth-shattering, genre-milestone ‘Obscura’ (’98). New tracks like “Forgotten Arrows” and “Absconders” showcase Lemay’s distinct playing and approach to composition, and prove that ‘Colored Sands’ is death metal of the highest order.

Gorguts Sherbrooke, Québec

Few extreme bands have the pedigree of GORGUTS. From their early days as part of death metal's first wave, through their transformation into one of most progressive and influential bands in extreme metal, GORGUTS has been impervious to trends, and a vehicle to expand and redefine the language of extreme metal. ... more
