Venombullet666 This album is jawdropping, it bursts with life and layers

In my opinion this should be celebrated as one of the best Debut albums of the 2010's at the very least Favorite track: A Highland Lament.

TM It is seriously so hard to decide which album is my favourite. This one has so many powerful, emotional riffs, and I'd say the highlight of this album is Roots, the riff at 12:43 is so emotionally powerful. Andrew is a musical genius 🤘🏻 Favorite track: Roots.

Roots 16:35
Buried in this soil Are roots that go deep Like scars etched in the earth Ancient wounds, a reminder Of a distant age When the heart of the mountain Pounded in every proud mans chest Of forgotten oath When blood and honour Spoke to every true man's soul "Scotia's thistle guards the grave Where repose her dauntless brave Never yet the foot of a slave Has trod the wilds of Scotia"* Never forget Their sacrifice
2.
When day fades into night Stars ignite the sky Illuminating sacred stones Mysterious carvings glimmer Revealing archaic prophecies Ghostly whispers haunt the air Evoking ancestral wisdom I stand hypnotised My destiny unfolds before me As I ascend to a higher purpose Beyond this life Now awake I stand free

Saorsa 02:17

We are sorrow's children Torn from Alba's womb A reflection of fallen martyrs The lifeblood of this land We are the mountains of heather And the desolate moorland below Aurora and darkness The pathos of the afterglow We are the forsaken Ancient echoes in the breeze The fallen leaves of autumn Withering away
