BRIEF TRACK BY TRACK BY THE BAND
BENEATH THE WAVES
This is inspired by stories such as Moby Dick and explores man’s need to destroy anything and everything beautiful, dangerous and unfamiliar… and the retribution dealt in return.
This song is a homage to all the old Hammer Horror films, particularly To The Devil A Daughter. An innocent born for the sole purpose of being a sacrificial vehicle of hell – topped off with some fake tomato sauce blood!
This song is about Mother Earth birthing the human race only to be sucked dry and left barren. It’s about a vast loneliness that can be felt even when surrounded by life.
UNDER THE MOUNTAIN
Under The mountain is an upbeat classic metal song! It reeks of adventure. The lyrics have been inspired by stories such as Conan the Barbarian and Lord of the Rings
APPROACHING THE END
A song about the moments before death and the feeling you’ve not achieved everything you wanted / needed to. It’s about the creeping fear that it’s not all white lights and glowing tunnels and about the not knowing where we go and what happens to us after death.
Ancients focuses on the majesty of the Mountain. Breathtakingly beautiful yet treacherous to all. Inspiration comes from our home, Scotland which is filled with ancient mystery and awe inspiring mountainous landscapes.
Hunger is about man’s greed and the feeling of never being satisfied with life, which further drives humankind to destroy and consume relentlessly.
Possession can be either about demonic possession or insanity. In both you are not yourself – like someone or something else trying to get out.
BLACK DOG BLUES
Something most of us can relate to: This is about depression and how it feels like something that is always with you like an old acquaintance. It lurks and waits, then, when you least expect it it slides on in and makes itself at home.
