FDJ Confession Time: I initially dismissed this on first listen as I loved the hard/stoner grooves but had a hard time dealing with the vocal style but thanks to a message from bassist and vocalist Maxime Boucher I tried again and slowly but surely the vocals started to grow on me. In fact I am now of the opinion that without the unique and distinctive vocals this may have been just another good but not exceptional stoner record. Favorite track: Drown In Quicksand.

Hazy Nebula Stoner metal chopped down in the deep woods with grinding vocals, sharpened riffs and chainsaw grooves. Favorite track: Lady Of The Slain.

Track Name: When Wilderness Calls
What do you think you’re getting yourself into
Don’t you know where you are, haven’t you seen the sign by the road
This land is forsaken, these woods, they are damned
Haven’t you heard the whispers carried by the wind from the trees by the road

You’ve gone too far, no turning back
Useless to try, you can’t help it
You feel its scent, you’ve met your fate
At her mere sight, you see your end

Shadows reveal the beastial curves
It’s even worse than in your nightmares
The wilderness replaces your soul
You feel the call, you’re now reborn

Let the fire burn your past memories
Track Name: Drown In Quicksand
Don’t you think they got to know
How we play with their minds
It’s all fun and games until…
Nevermind, we don’t care if they die!

Let them drown in the sand
And get buried…

Let them drown in the quicksand
See them bow to the Queen of night
Let them stick their poles in the sand
Condemned to die, yeah!
Till the end of times, alright!

I’ve seen you in the day light
You were just a scuplture of stone
As long as you give me what I want
You can keep my soul for all I care
Track Name: Iron Trap Song
They’ve come for payback
Get me out of this hell

This dream has my family looking to escape
Run now with the children while I lead them away
This dream has the antlers out looking for our blood
For them it’s a way to get peace of mind

This dream has my family failing to escape
At least I don’t get to see their pain
This dream is the last thing I’ll ever live
From now on the hunter will hunt no more
Track Name: Follow Your Instincts
As I walk down the road to perdition
I cross the valley between these magnificient hills
I slide my way on the plains of perdition
I reach the waterfall at the end of the world

Oh, if you could only see the landscape
And when you look up to the sky
Pearls of blue and long waves of gold

There always comes a time where you’re lost in the wild
You gotta clear the way, you gotta light a fire
The life you sacrifice will open the gates
Follow your instincts and now, make your way

Oh, if you could only see the landscape
And when you look up to the sky
Hazel eyes and curves of black

As you go further, the fire will take over, over your
Morality and love
A life without pain is yours

Some say I am the devil
She says I’m quite the beast
You’ve got to ask yourself
You really wanna remain in line?
Track Name: Lady Of The Slain
I have always been told
That she was all just a dream
But I’ve seen her, I swear
And not just in my dreams

The legend is alive
Alive and well
To you, daughter of love
I offer my soul

Embrace me in your wings
Let me feel your beauty
And take me to your great hall
Lay with me forever
