about

In the end of 2008 the first album «The Beginning Of The End» was recorded! The music of the debut was an original mixture of Progressive, Death, Thrash and Modern Metal, "spiced" with gloomy conceptual lyrics. One of the best sound control supervisors, Eugene Vinogradov «Day-Records», who had worked with loads of famous Russian bands and German legend "Crematory" was responsible for sounding of the CD.
The guests-musicians, who took part in recording of the album, were:
• Andrew Smirnov (U.D.O., Everlost, Flash Of Aggression) recorded the solo for the title track of the album, and also he did some keyboard arrangements.
• Alexander Dronov (Valkiriya, End Zone) recoded and arranged most part of the keyboard parts for the album. He appreciably enriched and modernized the band's sounding by that.
• Douglas Verhoeven (In-Quest) became a special guest. He recorded some solo parts for the song «Controlled by hate».
The design and all artwork of the CD was created by the famous Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes, who worked with such giants of the metal stage as Arch Enemy, Firewind, Nightrage, Cryptopsy, Sonic Syndicate, God Forbid, Amaranthe and many others.

Track Name: Beginning of the End
Welcome to this Eden of false hope.
The system will erase all your thoughts.
Left to die from birth, all alone you stand
Against the world outside. It’s time to understand that...
All our life is denied.
Feelings, watch them as they die.
Global violence reigns, killing innocence
In the eyes of the children, making beasts of them.

Born...
Born to die, consumed by life.
You are innocent victim.
Living in lie, no chance to survive.
Your life is just beginning of the end.
Your life is just beginning of the end.

Freedom it’s illusion of your mind
Endless deception makes you blind.
Helpless and confused all alone you stand
Now you’ve realized that the day of birth is the end

Born to die, consumed by life.
You are innocent victim.
Living in lie, no chance to survive.
Your life is just beginning of the end.
Your life is just beginning of the end.

Soul cage, endless rage fuels your existence.
Inner scars, silent cries, pray for the end.

Life is built upon a lie, devastation of your soul.
Kindness dies in a heart, global evil takes control.
Empty efforts, empty life, mass depression, desperation.
It will rape your sanity...you’re living in depravity.
Track Name: Controlled by Hate
“Time has come to go forward,
To choose the target and to kill.
It’s our turn now to attack”
We hear Master’s scream.

“Take their lives, destroy and fight!”
Mankind is enrage.
Hate controls our mind,
Someday it will be dead.

Each of us trust in himself,
Search for life in another’s death.
Souls of victims, shining of dead eyes,
From this day they will wait for us eternally.

Mass mindless prevails.
You’re under control of hate.
Free from choice.
Enslaved.
You are servant.
Obey!

“Believe in nothing, sell your soul,
Forget your sense of pity!”
Our lifeless generation comes,
By blind hate created.

We will pay twice for every death,
And blood for blood will flow.
But we don’t think about it,
Trying to kill more.

Each of us trust in himself,
Search for life in another’s death.
Souls of victims, shine of dead eyes,
From this day they will wait for us...
Track Name: Lifeless Existence
Life without emotions
There is nothing to believe.
Soulless generation
Doesn’t know how to forgive.
Spiritual crisis
Your body is an empty shell.
Just dead inside
Your feelings are locked in the cell.

Heartless, soulless, we are dead inside.
Anger and violence have blinded our mind.
Material gods created by mankind,
Life among pale shadows
Is this a real life?

Logic of machines
Indifference to everything
Worldwide hate
Compassion means nothing
Obsessed by greed
Money is your favorite god
The law of terror
Makes justice in blood.

Heartless, soulless, we are dead inside.
Anger and violence have blinded our mind.
Material gods created by mankind,
Life among pale shadows
Is this a real life?

Lies are everywhere
This is the kingdom of deception
Empty life,
Absence of imagination...

Dead inside, dead inside, dead inside, you’re dead inside…
Dead inside.
There's only emptiness in a hart,
Desperate cry, you live to die.
Dead inside.
Degeneration of mankind,
Your selfish thoughts, this world is lost. You’re dead!

Life without emotions
There is nothing to believe.
Soulless generation
Doesn’t know how to forgive
Obsessed by greed
Money is your favorite god
The law of terror
Makes justice in blood.
Track Name: Suicide
With every day my hope fades away.
Dreams are oppressed by cruel reality.
I don’t believe in better life.
Depression prevails, I see nothing.

Something inside doesn't give me rest.
It orders me: “Finish your quest!”
Suicidal thoughts are in my mind...
It drives me mad; I can't bear this torment.
All strength are lost but the voices are calling.
Suicidal thoughts are in my mind...

I’m a slave of my destiny; my life is pain.
I see no way out, and I can't escape
From this horrible thoughts.
They shout in my head and send me damnation.
I see terrible dreams, I feel devastation.
I’m going to commit suicide!

Oh, God!
I can’t find a reason to live.
Hey, God!
Don’t be so cold! I don’t believe
In lie
That surrounds me all my life.
Hey, you!
I’m going to leave this world behind
Leave this world…behind

I've lost myself in the chaos of life.
Cruelty, hate, evil and lie
Take us down, kill ours mind
They're like a slow poison, mankind is blind.

Lifeless existence has come to an end,
Pain will gone with a shot in the head.
Now Death is taking it's toll:
One shot, silence…
Track Name: In the End Pt.1 (Agony)
Pain, as heart is pulled out
Shout it is my last emotion
Red blood has covered my pale face.
Death’s embrace.

It’s cold. The light is fading away.
Fear. The black veil is closing my eyes.
Time has greedily slowed down run.
My life is to end.

The light is fading away.
Fear. The black veil is closing my eyes.
Time has greedily slowed down run.
My life is to end.

Death.
Death crawls as a shadow behind.
Digging a black hole without a bottom.
It’s place for eternal infernal torment
Where you’ll rest in pain.

Chains of this life are broken.
Falling down into nothingness.
The escape from the dead world.
Death, set me free.

Endless pain is bringing me
Insanity for the rests of my mind.
All senses are fading out, but
I feel death of my heart.
My life is turning to ashes
The black curtain is falling.

Death.
Death crawls as a shadow behind.
Digging a black hole without a bottom.
It’s place for eternal infernal torment
Where you’ll rest in pain...
Track Name: In the End Pt.2 (Epitaph)
Too weak, lost in the world’s false,
Isolated, rejected with your different mind.
Swallowed by the material world…

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference..."

Outcast, life has passed in exile
Misunderstanding is all you see
Hidden from the real world
They cut your wings; the end is here

Oppressed, driven to the last extreme. Isolated, rejected.
You found no savior left in life.
It’s all over now…

…life has passed in exile
Misunderstanding is all you see
Hidden from the real world
They cut your wings; the end is here
Loneliness, you die in silence
There’s no helping hand
In the end decision's been made
Your life was just beginning of the end

Hope for the better life has faded away.
Sin has enslaved mankind, nothing can help.
Naive illusions have turned into dust.
Broken. Now I'm just fragment of the past.

Outcast, life has passed in exile
Misunderstanding is all you see
Hidden from the real world
They cut your wings; the end is here
Loneliness, you die in silence
There’s no helping hand
In the end decision's been made
Your life was just beginning of the end
