about

With overdriven tube amplifiers, cranked fuzz pedals, feedback, wah pedals, drop tuning, heavy down tempo riffs, hard hitting drums, and powerful bluesy vocals, Astral Cult was formed.

Track Name: The Immortal
The Immortal

Leaving behind a trail of devastation
Never looking back
Terrified to witness
the wake of blood and bones

Can’t run from the sands of time
They take no prisoners
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
All things must die
Live long enough and you will find
There are worse things than death
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
All things must die

On a quest for immortality, she reaches the sky
Little changes, day after day, nothing’s what it seems
A serpent crawling in the dust, biting its own tail
Giving everything to have it all, creating her own hell

Her face grows thin and hollow
The light has left her eyes
Beauty devoid of humanity
Breathing, but hardly alive

Can’t run from the sands of time
They take no prisoners
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
All things must die
Live long enough and you will find
There are worse things than death
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
All things must die
Track Name: Lobotomy
Lobotomy

Running around in circles
Screaming at the wall
But they can’t hear me
No one ever hears me

Lock me up in shackles
In a padded cell
They don’t believe me
They never believe me

They tell me none of this is real
I feel things no one else can feel

Fighting all my senses
Can’t trust my memory
I didn’t hurt them
I swear I never hurt them

Is it even a crime if I can’t remember
They don’t believe me
Why does no one believe me

I can see them in the corner of my eye
When I turn around they disappear from sight

Spiders and snakes make no mistakes crawling inside, inside my brain

I found the truth
They ripped it away
Track Name: Ragnarok
Ragnarök

When the earth is still and the last flame dies, the gods are ready to rise

The invaders are marching
The gates of Hell are near
Darkness swallows the stars

Submerged in the lifeblood a new world is reborn
Only the two can survive

All has come to pass, that which has been foretold
The battle for the end has begun
It has begun

The beast emerges from the deep
His ancient bonds are broken
Wings of flame alight the sky

Destruction reigns over all
Lava flows, oceans freeze, mountains crumble into dust

All has come to pass, that which has been foretold
Track Name: Supernova
Supernova

Time doesn’t seem the same
Like a bullet to the brain
Only the madness remains

Lurking in the space between dreams and reality is a fading light
Sometimes it’s alright to die

Feeding on the ashes of all the wasted years
Mourning what could have been

Time doesn’t seem the same
Like a bullet to the brain
Only the madness remains
Track Name: Deathwish
Deathwish

Sharpen up your dagger
check the one-eyed jack hiding up your sleeve

Living with a deathwish
No second chances this time
If they catch you, you’ll be dining with the demons tonight

What’s hiding around the corner
Will you meet your match this time
Can you hear them calling, calling to take you away

Say your prayers to the dark one or the god who abandoned you
You’re gonna meet one of them soon

Breaking into the fortress
No man has lived to tell the tale
They’re gonna find you and you’ll be dining with the demons tonight

What’s hiding around the corner
Will you meet your match this time
Can you hear them calling, calling to take you away
Track Name: Beyond the Veil
Beyond the Veil

See the white bird crying softly through the fire
Silent screaming
Lights are dancing over my head
When they burn out, see the white bird drown

The room is spinning
The floor is sinking
The walls are breathing
Into the tunnel
Crawling fast but going nowhere
Floating, flying
The door won’t open until it wants to

Ancient spiders guarding the wine of ages
Laughter in the dark
Thunder and lightning inside the box with rusted hinges
Hear it, can’t you hear it screaming
Lifeless feathers in the water
Track Name: Seventh Vortex
The Seventh Vortex

Swallow the sun, feel your bones turn to dust
Clothed in nothing but the sky
Give yourself to the one with broken wings
She can fly you to the seventh vortex

Free yourself from the chains of your will
The dragonfly will show you the way
Taste the bliss of complete helplessness
As you fly to the seventh vortex

I wanna take you to a place you’ve never seen
Meet the demons the reside in you and in me
I’m gonna take you to a place behind your wildest dreams
When you feel it you can never go back

I’m your demon, I’m your love
Break yourself free from the chains that bind you to this world
As you’re flying to the seventh vortex

I wanna take you to a place you’ve never seen
Meet the demons that reside in you and in me
I’m gonna take you to a place behind your wildest dreams
When you feel it you can never go back
Track Name: Sacrifice
Sacrifice

Purity in white
Not a tear is shed
Purpose-filled footsteps
Slowly to the edge

Too young to die
Too scared to fight
Into the fire
The gods require their sacrifice

Like a lamb to the slaughter
No longer her mother’s daughter
Ashes on her face and hands
Getting hard to breathe
One more to join the ranks of countless innocent lives
Given to the deity sleeping in the mountain

In the mountain the gods are sleeping
When she jumps in, they’ll be feeding

Purity in white
Not a tear is shed
Purpose-filled footsteps
Getting close to the edge

I’m too young to die
I’m too scared to fight
Into the fire
The gods require their sacrifice
