-IV 18:18
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!

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!

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

Take Flight 06:40
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

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.
