about

This album has been in the making since the first days of the band. We had a lot of ideas that had a lot of potential, so we figured why wait, and after a period of rehearsals, we began recording. And after numerous delays and difficulties, we finished recording the songs in july, and after a couple of months of mixing and mastering, the album was finally completed.

The general idea behind the ablum was to come up with something new within something very familiar and well known by creating a unique sound and atmosphere, and combining the geographical ''North'' where we come from with the musical ''South'' under various other musical and social influences.

So we hope you'll enjoy it, and feel free to leave any comments, thoughts and suggestions on our e-mail or Facebook page.

All Hail The South ! ! !

Track Name: Crown of Misery
Forsaken kingdom, this no man's land
Who will cast a stone when blood is on each and every hand
History repeats from time to time
Guilt is ours to bear 'cause we are still so fuckin blind

My kingdom was built on pain
My throne was made out of sufferin'
I wear my crown of misery

I wear my crown
Of misery
A broken king
Of disarray

Forsaken kingdom, soaked by our cries
Beauty is forgotten even sun no longer shines
From north to south it stays the same
I'm a king with a crown and with no face and with no name

My kingdom was built on pain
My throne is made out of sufferin'
I wear my crown of misery

I wear my crown
Of misery
A broken king
Of disarray

All hail the king
Track Name: K.R.A.J.I.N.A.
Where the mountains rose high
And the rivers run green
Where the sacred ground
Is under our feet

Keeping rage and joy
In the northern abyss
It’s all I know
It’s all I miss

Where the rivers run green
And the mountains rose high
Where I was born
Where I will die

Keeping rage and joy
In the northern abyss
It’s all I know
It’s all I miss

And the river green will purify
This broken and bruised heart of mine

Where the skies are blue
And the brightest sun shines
Where I can find
My piece of mind

Keeping rage and joy
In the northern abyss
It’s all I know
It’s all I miss

Where the brightest sun shines
And the skies are blue
No matter where I go
I’ll return to you

Keeping rage and joy
In the northern abyss
It’s all I know
It’s all I miss

And the mountain wind will begin to blow
To heal the wounds of my soul
Track Name: Queen Of Sorrow
Born with a burden
Too heavy to bear
Silent screams
No one hears the call
Inside she's hurting
From too much care
Broken dreams
No one sees the fall

And no words are spoken
Can't you see she's broken

To get to know the strength, get inside her brain
To get to know the strength, get to know her pain

Born with a burden
She learned to bear
Smile on her face
Just an old disguise
Still she's hurting
Still no one cares
But you can't see the tears in her eyes

To get to know the strength, get inside her brain
To get to know the strength, get to know her pain

And no words are spoken
Can't you see she's broken

To get to know the strength, get inside her brain
To get to know the strength, get to know her pain
No hope to borrow for my queen of sorrow
No hope to borrow, she's my queen...
Track Name: Lately (I've Been Low)
Lately I've been down like I've never been before
I'm hating what I'm now so broken to the core
My days are long too long to help me get this through
My ways are wrong too wrong I can not face the truth

I can not save me
I can't evade
I only blame me
For the mess that I've made

Lately I've been low I can't get out of bed
I'm hating these four walls they're messing with my head

It takes so little for all to be destroyed
Caught in the middle I never had a choice

'cause lately
I've been low
Won't you help me
Find my way home

I hope this falling rain will hide the teary eyes
I've never been so low... oh wait that's a lie

I can not save me
I can't evade
I only blame me
For the mess that I've made

Fallin' into depression a place that is well known
Left with no direction to find my way back home

It takes so little for all to be destroyed
Caught in the middle I never had a choice
It takes so little to destroy it all
Caught in the middle again I'll fall
Track Name: Grey Decemeber's Sky
She surrounds me
so close I can hear her breathe
She's all around me
So close like she never leaves
Well perfected
this art of causing pain
Unexpected
She hits like summer rain

I will never walk this road alone
I will never get out of her embrace

Every night she sits
Underneath my window
Whispers all these things to
Scare me just a little
Keeps me away
From those who are dear
Keeps me away
But she is always here

I will never walk this road alone
I will never get out of her embrace

Grey December's sky
A new home for the young souls
She won't be denied
She is the blackest of all
Well respected
If u don't than you're a fool
Unexpected
But she's coming for you

I will never walk this road alone
I will never get out of her embrace
She is the blackest of all the crows
She sits there waiting just counting my days

She surrounds me
So close I hear her breathe
She surrounds me
So close like she never leaves
Track Name: Unvisited Grave
It must be the skies
These shades of grey
In front of my eyes
I see your face
It must be the wind
That silently blows
Makes me wanna open
The long closed doors

They took everything that was mine
No sun for eyes to see
Will this hate in me ever die
Or will it die with me
Die with me

I can see your face
And to me it's real
Time will not erase
Time won't help me heal


I don't wanna be sheltered
From the pain and the past
I don't visit your grave
That's not where you rest
A fatherless child
Grew into a man
Searching for that smile
That I once had

They took everything that was mine
No sun for eyes to see
Will this hate in me ever die
Or will it die with me
Die with me

I can see your face
And to me it's real
Time will not erase
Time won't help me heal
Track Name: Tempation After Tempation
I feel that God is testing’ me
There ain’t much that’s left of me
One temptation after another
Sometimes I wonder why bother
Why bother

A lifetime of reaching lows
Just a skull underneath the crow
Suffocating, sinking slow
Temptations lead me to the end of the road

Standing at the crossroads
Time has come for me
Where this path will now go
Only I can see

I feel that they keep testing’ me
But they won’t get the best of me
One temptation after another
Reason enough for me to go harder

A lifetime of reaching lows
Swimming with pockets full of stones
Dragging me down, I’m sinking slow
Temptations taught me to rise above

Standing at the crossroads
Time has come for me
Where this path will now go
Only I can see
Track Name: After Laughter
When did we run out of words to say
Only tears can come after
I guess we ran out of games to play
Bitter silence takes over the laughter
My insecurities
They get the best of me
I’m always questioning
Leads us to suffering
Suffering

After laughter
Come tears

Tell me something about you
Trust me with something that nobody knows
Won’t you reveal a secret or two?
Show me a side that you’ve never shown
Never shown
Time has left you scared
I still bare my own
Even if we should part
I’d still consider this my home

After laughter come tears
Disaster comes faster with fear
After laughter tears will come
Disaster comes faster when it’s all said and done
Track Name: ... and The Kingdom Will Rise Again
Rise!

This no man’s land soaked by our cries
From the dust and the ashes we shall arise

Kingdom forsaken slowly breaking from the inside
It’s time to awake and now part take in this new sunrise
Our wounds will heal and we will kneel no more
This what I feel is o so real it’s o so strong

Time is wasted all on nothing
These fake prophets want to lead us to our tombs
We will be the nail in their coffins
We will be the beginning of their doom

U can’t hurt me I know every pain
‘Cause my throne was made out of suffering
U can’t hurt me I’m more than a man
And my kingdom will rise again

Kingdom forsaken no more aching on the inside
The wall is breaking, we are taking all that is ours
The final hour so empowered I am
Live like a coward? Rather die like a man!


Time is wasted all on nothing
We broke the spell and now let’s break the chains
We will be the nail in their coffins
Rise from this hell, and let the heaven prevail

Rise
Rise
Rise
Rise, rise, rise rise
