Apologies. 02:25
Please have a seat Here's our apology And now please feel free To be appalled by all means This won't fix it It just makes it worse And hey, after all This isn't our worst And hey, after all You've seen our best I think I speak for everyone here And I agree that no apology will fix this We'll make it up to you some how real soon And fix this mess real quick Not that it matters at least not to us Not that it matters to anyone I think I have nothing real in common with your realm And I repel from all your accusations Believes and transformations And for the fact that you have forged all of this
Endings. 02:57
All these questions you ask And all the answers I have And all the kisses we shared There's just no meaning to that Simply no meaning to that I wish I could forget All the answers I got When I didn't ask I wish I had The strength to dissapear When I had the chance For all the answers That I already have Come a thousand questions Pelting down on me again When did I Start finding joy in disappointments And develop this lack of confidence No more commitments I used to be so different Oh look This could be me Everything but us But what is freedom if confinement Traps us all in the past And there's no freedom Just destruction that is paving our paths Would you If I'd let you Would you break me And Would you if I'd beg you Would you crack me Crack my chest wide open Leave me be Wide open Leave me be Would you if I'd let you Would you Yeah, would you if I'd let you Could you
Cures. 02:22
What does it feel like to become A modern world recruit and numb Just stare Just wait I am the cure for everything You can not lead At least not me And for as long as we can think for ourselves We are free You will not find Another way to lure me Or anyone else away You can not lead At least not me And for as long as we can think for ourselves We are free What does it feel like to become A lone wolf on the throne I'm watching you get torn apart By the monster you once spawned You can not lead At least not me And for as long as we can live for ourselves We are free
Triggers. 02:41
If you cant stop the ticking To the rythm of a gear clicking Then just watch the pendulum Turn into a wreckingball Gently swinging up To prepare for the destructive fall There's a monument half built half crumbling And hands that are holding the cracks Convulsive fingers are cramping You're looking back although there's nothing left


In the writing process that led to our latest full length "be water" we wrote an absurd amount of songs.

When we felt ready, we entered the studio and recorded fifteen songs in total of which eleven made it on „be water“.

After discussing the order of the songs at length we came to the conclusion that the remaining four songs would neither fit the concept nor the final flow of the album. But somehow these songs created their own coherent composition when looked upon as a whole.

We believe that these songs deserve their own release since they fully represent our writing abilities including a different approach on the spectrum of melodic heaviness.

You’re holding the result in your hand right now - our new EP.

Instruments recorded at RAMA Studio with Chris Bethge and Jens Siefert.

The vocal recording, mixing and mastering were handled by Dimi Conidas.

Chris at TCM would grant us full artistic freedom again, and generally is always supportive of all we do.

We are very lucky and blessed to have these individuals, our families, our friends and all the people that made/make this adventure of ours possible as a bedrock in our (musical) foundation.

Thank you and much love!

We love what we do and we hope you do too!

See you on the road!

Armin, Matthias, Marc, Nicolas, Thomas
