ON THORNS I LAY: "Angeldust"               (38:02)
Review by Lovedeath
E' dal 1997 che seguo questa gothic band greca, dal quel tanto fascinoso "Orama" tanto passionale e intenso quanto mal curato nella produzione. Nel ' 99 fece seguito il buon "Crystal Tears" e l'anno dopo "Future Narcotic". 

Questo "Angeldust" mostra quanto la giovane band sia maturata nel corso di questi anni e anche gli arrangiamenti e la produzione sono davvero buoni. Il grande punto di forza della band sta proprio nelle voci, un growl molto light e intenso si sovrappone ad una voce maschile pulita molto Depeche Mode ,Paradise Lost, e una splendida voce femminile. La musica presenta notevole originalitÓ ricordando a tratti i Paradise Lost,i My Dying Bride e anche i Lacuna Coil. Davvero stupenda la title-track che si presenta elegantissima e quanto mai passionale, cosi come "Deep thoughts" che Ŕ davvero definibile una song di Depressive-metal. Certo, il gruppo deve ancora maturare e non sarÓ senz'altro un punto di arrivo questo "Angeldust" ma senz'altro i nostri hanno individuato i loro punti di forza che stanno proprio nelle parti vocali; migliorati sono gli arrangiamenti e soprattutto la produzione, anche le canzoni sono molto pi¨ ricche di enfasi e passione e sono meno prolisse del passato, ma credo che proprio sulle idee e sulle melodie che il gruppo deve sforzarsi per comporre un super-album, le basi ci sono tutte, intanto fossi in voi un pensierino a questo album ce lo farei

1. SICK SCREAMS  The shadowless street smelled dry as sand you see the sunshine behind my life Let me listen to this do you mind ? You'll cry again lonely in the dark And you will rise throught all the sick screams I thought the last times forgotten in my word A break of life everytime stay alone What I see is real ? I don't really know A lie so true and fake A vision is dying today in my brain

2. A LIGHT IN PARADISE  How can you forget your suffering future ? You'll never forget what I said to you Time is the best friend of you Summer is dawning as always I'll dress the light in paradise You'll never dream a better place what do you see in your Secret world, your innocence

3. BLACK COLD NIGHTS  I'll stay forever with you to the gates of paradise Never leave me alone Before the end of years muddy pictures like a light I cry for you my soul Forever stay in silence how can I fly with broken wings I'll never turn to you Find I new desire hope will never die again trying to move my thoughts Black cold nights we heal our sorrows Insane insensate for everything we see An inglorious end of sorrow my pride to adversity and we are crying for inauspicious moments lost in the abyss of time tonight I'm sinking into your fears to velvet skies of your eyes I search falling in dreamlands fragile dreams you'll never see

4. ANGELDUST  Why should I suffer for thing that I never saw ? And if you know which way to follow my soul emotions I'll give you back indisposed me pale destiny travelers to realities that sweeten my pain, travelling for new sensation every season we fight like hell A touch of sorrow convict my faith to eternal end as I drift away I find silence, last failure of myself your absence my hope,the end of the world again forever stay in silence again Closed in the words of me mind I'm falling in broken visions and if you thing that everything is lost find a reason to live, find the treasure of your soul through tragic journeys My fear salutary lies to your melancholy, lost in silence Every moment of my life I'll die for you and everytinhg you say to me is turning to you I disprove your innocence and to stamp every cloud in your eyes A lone dies inside you when you are walking in painless ways Like a message of eclipse, touch me like an angel, like the echo from east like the beauty of your love

5. MOVING CITIES  Can you feel my pain ? I leave me hands to you I'm coming to an end and everything will be so real What you mean to me you see moments that sign in time again because everything pains me deep False hopes pain and death Never been able to read me for everything that suffered me because everything pains me deep Ashes forever will be

6. DEEP THOUGHTS I speak to you like a frieland, a beck fray full of fame Flames of hesitation today we'll see Yearning after groans of pain I exult for me win a fad of sorrow is coming from future to you Blue horizons touch the limit of beauty like forgotten angels into a paradise of your oceans Like I prayer that breaks the time I leave everything back The key of life I search falling forever Deep thoughts of limitless dimensions blow my mind Pride for (centuries) we meditate our dreams forever Celestial season we find our peace to heaven A touch for miracle like immortal kiss of hope

8. NEVERENDING HOPE I don't search for nothing in my life as I close my soul in cold rain words of fears Said me that you'll travel away from light having no desire in this crazy fucking world Don't betray your fate find your secret self is coming up to you It is getting strange every single day and might be so true Finally at the end is so hard to feel my emotions and these screams in me sleep Hidden secrets send me warning of damnation No more drugs to find a new way
