Lyrics:

One step into uncertainty

Swampy deathbed welcoming

Heartless, abstract art

Defiant heart’s dream, unknown calling

Uncertain step taunting

Losing sight of my feet

Descent then hope hesitating

A man slowly miring

Behold, the cleansing of conceit

The filth in which I sink

Nameless hope

In wetland’s quicksand we meet

Common branches

With uncommon reach

Longing for life

Godlike hand grasping me

Lost soul, alone, wandering

Troubled mind slowly bearing

Emergent life and new faces

Holding strong under strained roots aching

Green nature, face half in peat

Now on my side lying

Clouded sight, one eye gazing

Sunlight beaming through the leaves blazing

Behold, the cleansing of conceit

The filth in which I sink

Nameless hope

In wetland’s quicksand we meet

Common branches

With uncommon reach

Longing for life

Godlike hand grasping me

Suffocating feat, eternal feeling

The time between God’s blink

First time truly fighting

The clash of armies meet

Sinking, I pull up my knees

Fighting to breathe underneath the heavens

The beauty of grey clouds and skies that weep

All the while, mortal man upon the ground sinks

Slowly sinks

The young cypress climbs,

Its heart longs with reaching arms

Soon to be humbled

Slipping, I embrace its showing roots

In wetland’s quicksand

Here lies Man

Shield Of Wings, music news,

Midwest American symphonic metal band Shield Of Wings emerge from their hiatus, and make their thrilling entry into the new year with their debut single, Wetland. The song is coupled with a captivating music video. Wetland is the first offering from their forthcoming debut full-length album, Unfinished, set to release February 11th. Sure to appeal to fans of symphonic metal giants Nightwish and Epica, as well as film score composer like Hans Zimmer, James Horner, and Howard Shore, their new album, Unfinished, will bring into view 10 bombastic compositions of poetic exploration.

Vocalist Lara Mordian comments on the Wetland filming process:

Shooting Wetland, and wading through that cold, wet, filth, was a challenging albeit invigorating time for me. Prior to filming in late autumn, I was warned of the certain discomfort to come, but I was reassured by James that “pain is temporary, film is forever”, and I embraced it».

Each song from Unfinished explores themes of growth through self-examination, regret, sacrificial death and rebirth. From the Crushing Hail of the suffering which is inherent in life, the listener is carrie through this journey, until the final track expounds upon the realization that we are all, in ways, The Scarred Clay Reshaping. With bold, vast orchestral compositions soaring over chugging guitars, Shield Of Wings makes it abundantly clear that they are Unfinished, in more ways than one.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6227 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.
