about

This is the first full length album by the progressive metal band Burnt to Ashes. We have been working on these songs for years and produced everything on our own. The recording was done at the beginning of 2016. Everything was recorded and produced by Paskkal Produkktions, an independent recording studio owned by the drummer, Sacha. The physical copies of the album were crafted and printed by Specimen Workshop, a silk-screen print shop owned by the guitarist, David. There are three different physical editions of this album, the Silver, Gold and Azul editions. The Silver edition comes in a craft paper envelope and contains the four songs published on this website. The Gold edition comes in a black opaline envelope and contains the four songs published here, plus "-IV" as an instrumental version. The Azul edition comes in a black opaline envelope, includes a lyric book, and the cd contains the four songs published here, plus the same four songs in instrumental versions.

This is a concept album, which describes a journey of transcendence. Each song on the album represents a state of matter or element (fire, earth, water, wind) and at the same time represents a mind altering substance. The album was written in reverse order, from the end to the beginning and that is why "-IV" is named so.

Track Name: -IV
Lies! Surrounded!
By the ashes
Swallowed by the sea, consuming us
Falling... into the abyss


See me go, through the storm.
Letting go my soul
Suddenly awake!

See the void take the sea and transform all to dust.
Leave the body you once owned, tearing apart; becoming all.
For how long our mind will roam to repair our mistakes.
To get the poison out my heart,
We must drop ourselves
Against

The fall of the world, is because of you.
The fault of it, is ours.

Debris of our dust has fed the soil
with the hope of a newborn being; illuminated.
This is the catharsis of a new way
To feel the irony of watching this realm collide


Drown to the sea and become his life.
Change all from the inside to the core.
Drown... feel the pressure and let it go.
Lightning, tainted red, through your veins
The future is the wishes that we lost, by the time to come.

As this light will come, no one will prevail in here.
All will fall, no one will prevail, anything!

No one, anything!
As this light will come, no one will prevail, in here.
All will fall, no one will prevail, anything!
Track Name: Common Ground
This is my soul
This is turmoil
I still can't find
The way out, Delve into
The inner space

Try to enjoy, The chaos within
Try to survive, Run for your life
You can't hide from your fears
This is hell and I am the fallen
Get to the past seek common ground

It's over now, you've gone too far
Take everything you know and flush it down

Run away it's getting darker, too far now

Rise above your earthly distress
It's your universe you made this mess
Forsake yourself and fall into the void
Perhaps I'm just being paranoid

Nothing will be the same
All the scars keep on bleeding
Broken down I'm done
I can't repair myself
If you go deep enough
You'll find your path is gone
Forget me and move on
A smoke trail I've become

How did I get here? Where am I now?
Tear apart reality to find another way
Cut through my anatomy to find another way to see
Tear it all
Destroy it all
Burn it all!
Track Name: Into the Depths
Consciousness around me
An ocean to die in and sink within
A tar pit to pull me under
Suffocate on my own breath

Fight it, I'm still breathing
Smoke fills my lungs pushing me further down
Embrace it, let the water in
Red eyes are glaring it's taking me now

Let go and feel the clouds below you
Sink to the bottom to find the air

Now that you've become one with the water you can never resurface again
Convulsing, my body's becoming something that is not from this world
Realign the pieces so they can fit together in a different way
Bone flows through blood and water converging, swirling in chaos
All the pieces are there they just feel like they belong to another
State of matter or ionic charge, just don't fit anymore
Don't let it flow away, or you'll be changed forever; a liquid spirit
Find all the particles, bring them with you,
Now swim!

Get to the volcano where solids are made again
Find the wise turtle to guide you and reclaim your body

Swim into the abyss
Of the deep realms we have not found
Find it beyond the horizon
The colors are changing there's no time left

Felt drowned in myself

I am Nereus I move what I want and I claim what I wish
This realm is mine now drown everything to become it
I am the ocean around myself trapped within
Track Name: Take Flight
Surface from the great sea into the forest of shadows
Cutting through the woods
A specter seeking refuge in utter chaos dripping
Flowing into the soil
This is not my domain I must seek the words of the wise turtle
To reach the answers

There it rises above, the monolith of wisdom
Sprouts from her toes, the mushroom is a key

It wasn't supposed to feel this way
Sickened by enlightenment

Where do we go from here?
Now that we have no fear

Now that I can feel
The weight of life lifted from me
Nine eyes opened wide
No more need to hide

Into the realm of air
Feel my breath declare
