Waldhalla Chris Mandatory purchase! Who the fuck needs thousand of DSBM Bands? Highly recommended breathtaking fourth album! Favorite track: Departures.

NegativeTypo One of the world's great melancholic metal bands. This album takes all the best elements of their previous work and moulds them together to create a thoughtful, introspective masterpiece- and their best LP yet. Favorite track: Aurora.

ProgHog231 Ghost Brigade was a Bandcamp discovery for me several years back, and I listen to them frequently. This fourth effort continues the trend from the last album of even more clean singing and overall less heaviness. Comparisons to Katatonia aren't misplaced, but Ghost Brigade has their own sound and sensibility. I've always liked the drumming...understated and effective. Favorite track: Departures.

Timothy McConaghy The new album lives up to the golden Ghost Brigade standard that they have set for themselves. I hope to see many more albums from these guys in the future, as this stuff is great. Atmospheric, empowering and saddening all at the same time. Favorite track: The Knife.

Finland's GHOST BRIGADE haunts the spaces between worlds. Their heavy, mournful music is the sound of dusk; mining the distinctive Finnish sound of sorrow and the vast, heavy drone of the post-metal cosmos. Plaintive vocals sing songs of loss, and cloak both a sonic and emotional weight that resonates deeply. 'IV: One with the Storm' is a dark, emotional, and truly moving album of the heaviest modern metal.

Track Name: Wretched Blues
Walking
Slowly
Distilled blood
Designed to never fail
Sedate and pure
Cold by choice
Stylized pain
I am feeling blue

Lacerated
And swallowed
Down below
I was fearless but now I'm screaming scared
In nothingness
In this emptiness
So I let this void to fill up my heart

Of fire and endless resistance
Where shadows bite like flames
They sing of fire and endless resistance
Where echoes call your name

Medicated and ready
To accept life
As it comes and as it ends
Expectations
And the highest of hopes
You're supposed to be happy
When everything around us
Is alive and green

Of fire and endless resistance
Where shadows call your name
Of fire and endless resistance
Where echoes bite like flames
Forevermore

Hollow men on hollow ground
Crushed bones and bruising souls
Multiple substance abusers
Track Name: Departures
Today all colours are bleeding
Across the ocean
I am sorry I couldn't stay

How does it feel to own what you are
To unstitch your heart without causing a flood
To fall but never ceasing to believe
In light taking over darkness
To breathe life in serenity

If only I knew how to forgive
If only I knew how to let go
If only I knew how to own what I am

Galaxies away, I am riding the waves of the lost
Lead this ship astray, make me hate you again
Fear, trust, guilt, love
In the grip of a coming storm
I am sinking under the weight of a troubled sun

When bitterness conquered the heart
And left us crawling in the cold

Screamed worth a lifetime with a voice of a follower
Always too soon, always too late
Screamed worth a lifetime with a voice of a follower
Always too soon, always too late, always in between

If only I knew how to forgive
If only I knew how to let go
If only I knew how to own what I am
Track Name: Aurora
Could I be your light
When you are afraid?
Could I be the reason
When you're asking why?
I could be a mistress for your lonely nights
I would give you wings

I am the gateway
To another life
You are on your way
To a better place

Descending weight
Aroused by the warmth
Like a moth circles the lantern
You are calling us like a drug

Everything is covered in white
You can hear the silence
Your heart stopped beating
But you still keep walking

Feeling lighter than air
You are one with the sky
Now you understand
You are a frozen star

Lower your armour
Release the pain
Cry like a newborn
You are free again

There is no violence
In surrounding darkness
There are no laws
In this chaos of colours

This weary burden
Of eternal winter
Fading away
Aurora
Track Name: Disembodied Voices
A fiery rain is keeping me awake
With every drop killing another promise
Mind's drifting in nothingness
Life in circles
And I know that not so long from now
Hope will conquer all

They said time heals
In a year or so you'll be alright
Time doesn't heal
It only makes you forget

Mind's drifting in nothingness
Life in circles
And I know that not so long from now
Hope will conquer all

Tomorrow's a way out
From all of my graves
Tomorrow's a way out
From all of this

From all of my graves

With a thousand snakes at my feet I rise
With death in my eyes
Run with the speed of light
Until hope conquers all

A fiery rain is keeping me awake
With every drop killing another promise
Track Name: Electra Complex
Slowly blinking light
Calls you home
Where your bloodline began
And where the meadows bathe in a cold morning sun
No place like other
It's so easy to breathe

And you felt the closeness of her
Yet you knew she was long gone
Tied your eyes
And the light won't hurt you
And kept the secret deep inside

Waiting for a closure
There is no remorse in your eyes
Only anger can keep you alive
And memories of a view from the past
No such thing as you are
Unique creation from the heart

And I felt the closeness of you
But I knew you were gone
Tied my eyes that the light wouldn't hurt me
And carried the secret inside

You tasted the venom
And felt the teeth and claws
Bared more than anyone dares
Swayed between real and unreal

You tasted the venom
And felt the whip and the chains
Bared more than anyone
Swayed between real and unreal

Teared open your mother's ribcage
Took out her beating heart
Looked deep into her dying eyes and asked
”Was I ever worth of this?”

Freak of nature

You tasted the venom
And felt the teeth and claws
Bared more than anyone dares
Swayed between real and unreal

Now you are here to show us why
A broken heritage should never be shown
Now you are here to tell the secret
Why some things should never be born

Teared open your mother's ribcage
Took out all her love
Looked deep into her dying eyes and asked
”Is this my price?"

Freak of nature
Track Name: Stones and Pillars
Crawl my way through growel and crust
The hardest job I've ever had
Your heart is heavy but so is mine
As I swore to you once you're never gonna walk alone

Placing this image of a man
In between stones and pillars
Deep in the shadows
Armed and protected from curious eyes

I'll keep walking till my feet give out
And my veins are dry like that wishing well
I still have purpose, one task to do
It's like wandering without a compass
But I'm still searching for you

Misery
It is our curse
Desperation
Feels like drowning in shallow waters
In between stones and pillars

Found some burned wood and six rusty nails
Somehow I knew exactly what I'm supposed to do
Building this monument for us to remember
What was it like when there was peace

Misery
It is our curse
Desperation
Feels like drowning in shallow waters
Misery
It is our curse
Desperation
Track Name: Anchored
In your dead city
There was never enough light for all of us
In your dead city
The absence of its soul made me want to leave
Into the unknown
Feel the fever piercing through your mind
Into the unknown
This is the last time you will ever see me burn

Let me drown to light with my ghosts

Only a few miles from home now
A rousing fire in my eyes
Closer to salvation
Free from the weight of you

Let me drown to light with my ghosts
Let me drown to light

Innocent lies
A love that never dies
Will you catch me when I fall
Crimson eyes
A light that never blinds
Promised to fight
Till I meet myself again
Innocent lies
A love that never dies
Will you catch me when I fall
Crimson eyes
A light that never blinds
Till I meet myself again

Can't remember what it felt like the last time I left
Unable to criticize
Can't remember what it felt like the last time I left
Unable to compromise
Seal my mouth
All screams quieted down
Seal my mouth
And feel the fever rising

Innocent lies
A love that never dies
Will you catch me when I fall
Crimson eyes
A light that never blinds
Promised to fight
Till I meet myself again
Track Name: The Knife
Try to stand up
Can't feel your feet
Trying to survive
You have no will to live
You want to get out
Walk through that door
Too weak to seek for help
But you know you have to try

Just one more time

Waiting for the end
Or a change
Direction
'Cos you know you are ready to take everything you get
You get nothing done
Emotionally broken
You feel sick
When you find out that your best friend is a liar

Like we all are

This is not the first time
When I'm in this condition
And it's not the last time
When I promise to change everything

Another year
Another wasted season
A decent boy holds the line alone
Another day
Another wasted hour
I'm standing on the edge of open grave
Let the shovel sing

Squeeze all the anger into a box
Seal it tight and bury it deep
Squash all your wisdom and light up the skies
Rub the blade till your fingers bleed
They preach about family and love
Yet in the end nothing's sacred

Halos are fading

This is not the last time
When I'm bound to take the step
And it's not the first time
When I promise everything
This is not the first time
When I'm in this condition
And it's not the last time
When I promise to change everything

Another round
Another empty bottle
That same boy tries to be a man
Another prayer
Another pointless promise
I'm standing on the edge of open grave
Let the shovel sing

Spilling lies upon your father's grave
Let the shovel sing
Track Name: Long Way to the Graves
When everything is said and done
And there's finally some time to breathe
You are overwhelmed by the calm
Senses focused for the one and only you love

I keep you safe at any cost
You must keep moving on until everything is lost

There's nothing that could break us apart
No sudden moves to shake your ground
There's no one who could make you complete
You've got a long way to the graves

One lie could tear us apart
And one look could change everything
Even your heart
Fragile life can be lost in a flash
You have grieved enough, you have to stand up

There's nothing that could break us apart
No sudden moves to shake your ground
There's no one who could make you complete
You've got a long way to the graves
Track Name: Elämä on tulta
Elämä on tulta
En jaksa enää juosta
Hakekaa minut pois täältä
Tehkää päivistäni arvokkaita

Elämä
Tulta
En jaksa enää juosta
Elämä
Tulta
En kanna enää huolta
