The track Crystal Cove and  quote about the single:

Far From Refuge are thrilled to present Crystal Cove, the first single from their upcoming album. The track is an onslaught of technical metal, where dynamic and uncompromising guitar work is accompanied by daedalian percussion and vicious vocals. Lyrically, Crystal Cove deals with the heartfelt emotions of rage at abandonment, the sorrow of isolation, and the futile search for the meaning of existence.

Lyrics:

Shrouded in dark i wake   

Unseen cold embrace

Dream of what could have been

I have to break free

In this cage I am immortal

Reach for life beyond my sunken grave

Name me my father

Master of stars

Save me from darkness

Curse of my past

Martyr

I am alone

Betrayer

I am unborn

Speak my name!

This shell, my broken home

Within this open wound I feel the flesh and bone

Blood fills my mouth I try to scream

Paradigm, a regal freak

Within a sea of time I am the son of disease

I am the end of anthropy

Are we free to seek our

fate or dreams

Do we march in to insanity

Are we lost

Or just unseen

Mass deception

Reign supreme

Name me my father

Master of stars

Save me from darkness

Curse of my past

Martyr

I am alone

Betrayer

I am unborn

Are you a friend are you an enemy

Are you the pain from deep within my dreams

Will you be there when I fall asleep

The voice inside my head won’t stop making me believe

A blanket of snow, a synchronicity

Breathless and cold stricken by lethargy

A face in the dark oh master of stars

I don’t want to leave

I need this to be real

Martyr

I am alone

Betrayer

I am unborn

Surrender

I walk alone

Deserter

Where is my war?

Name me my father

Master of stars

Save me from darkness

Curse of my past

Far From Refuge have been making music since 2016, fusing elements from metalcore, melodic death, progressive metal, and electronica, to create a powerful and captivating sound that entwines intricate guitars with antagonistic vocals to underpin lyrical themes ranging from the human condition to tales of cosmic interlopers, and anything in between.

Their entrance to the world of metal was announced with the aptly named single Emergence, and their self-produced eponymous 5 track EP was released in February 2019, complemented by music videos for the tracks Circuits and The Architect, followed by an alternative reprise of the hard hitting battle anthem There Was A Light. Since then the boys have kept busy, releasing 2 more singles, Kingdom and Starseeker, and several covers, including a faithful rendition of TesseracT’s Survival.

Far From Refuge continue to thrill audiences with their neck wrenchingly energetic, yet resoundingly melodious live performances at countless live shows and have been featured on many local and international channels including BBC TV and radio.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5562 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
