Morts This is an intriguing rock album that seems to be bordering on progressive or post-rock at times without really being either. Far from metal, but with a strength raising it above soft-cock rock, the incredible sense of melody sweeps you away effortlessly without sacrificing the experimental elements, an accomplishment to which very few artists can lay claim! Repeated listens also bear even more fruit. Soul replenishing stuff! Favorite track: Find Myself Lost.

Mario Santos Ramos Fantastic song. I love to listen to a bands first album. Specially so when you can hear that they are experimenting and each song is different than the other. This particular song has elements from bands I love but still sounding like their own style. Awesome sauce right there. Looking forward to hear what these guys do in the future. Favorite track: Mother Nature's Infanticide.

LYRICS: Go on and shine your own light You don’t need to reflect the brilliance of others You are brighter than a star Go on and find your own way You don’t need to look for answers from others Within you here they are. Over the boundaries of the unknown Never fear to leap towards a stepping-stone Go on and shine your own light There’s no need to reflect the brilliance of others You are brighter than a star. Go on and find your own path You don’t need to walk the distance You can fly, spread your wings you will go far Over the boundaries of the unknown Never fear to leap towards a stepping-stone Across the seven seas You can sail as you please Your life’s a voyage of discovery Across the deep blue skies A brand new day arises Your choices are meant to be wise Go on and shine You’re star you’re so bright Go on and shine, my child you’re star you’re so bright 2013 © Atlas Volt

LYRICS: History is written in blood It’s no mystery We haven’t learned a thing From all the agony Of the victims of our own insanity. Are we too busy to see? We’re about to repeat in all impunity These acts of pure madness and atrocities. It’s a book filled with rage With a blank on the page About the coming of age of peace But there’s hope in the eyes of our youth Until they realize it’s still An eye for an eye And a tooth for a tooth. All over the world… 2013 © Atlas Volt

LYRICS: Once I found myself lost On the straight road of my life I went astray and I thought Why on earth do I drive On an empty tank of love? I drove myself crazy Unable to recall What I was looking for I didn’t know where to go And I was getting nowhere Afraid of my own shadow I don’t know why I got so scared Leading myself smack into the wall I drove myself crazy Unable to slow down On the verge of a breakdown So unaware that I wasn’t alone taking that road Lost in despair looking for a milestone To find my way home When I found myself lost It felt so unreal Behind the wheel Couldn’t see clear Losing control In need of direction I was trapped in the dead-end of my quest Couldn’t find my location My whole existence reassessed Before too long you crossed my path and Then, I draw the conclusion That the road to love Was under construction You were in my blind spot And I couldn’t see you all that time. I should have known better That traffic jam was just a sign While driving almost side by side We were a collision Waiting to happen When we found ourselves lost… Driving down the wrong side of this foggy road I put the brakes on Then you turned my life around Saving me from self-destruction And the affliction of tunnel vision You revealed me to myself, Now I understand you were my destination Since we got each other now We found our way back through the unknown To this place that we call home Now that you found me I found myself Finders keepers Now I’m all yours 2013 © Atlas Volt

LYRICS: The end of man won’t be the end of the world Mother Nature’s Infanticide Mother Nature’s Infanticide We can see it coming She’s been Cheated Mistreated Her resources are depleted She’s bruised Abused and confused Now she must choose To get rid of the fruits She carried in her womb Our existence is doomed We’re gonna get What we deserve She’s all worn-out With more than she can bear Unbalanced, tilting and spinning in despair Suffocating trying to breathe some air Wondering why life is so unfair We pumped the essence of her past In our vision of the future She’s longing to be free at last Burden of motherhood is torture Open wounds in the atmosphere Modern warfare in both hemispheres Her choice is made we need to disappear Our dear Biosphere will not shed a tear Bipolar meltdown She’ll watch us drown Her distress is profound She’ll think her crime is justified It’s assisted suicide She’ll choke us down We won’t be found She’ll bury us all, deep in the ground Her parasites will all subside Mother Nature’s Infanticide This song is no prophecy It’s a cautionary tale Written in the skies and the seas Or measured on the Richter scale Are these gigantic eruptions Caused by some mantle disruptions? Or is the sacrifice of her prized possession Nothing but a crime of compassion? 2013 © Atlas Volt

LYRICS: Growing tide of convergence Won’t turn around and let you float You’re slated for submergence When this giant wave will sink your boat This surge rolls up like a scroll You’ll be swept along by a flash flood You’ll feel like a fish in a bowl The media magnates are playing God They’re playing God Playing God Don’t give up, For this is the time it washes up at your feet Swiftly withdraw and run Before their takeover is complete Make your voices heard and refuse To mass consume ’cause they told you to No wonder why you feel so confused When all you got is their point of view Their point of view… You’re taken by the tide I’m taken by the tide We’re taken by the tide 2013 © Atlas Volt
