‘My Last Winter Trail’ Lyrics:

Another night under the wolf moon

In a chilling bite, I wish for June

A fainted light coats me in blue

A soft goodbye, this is an ending tune

The beast awakens, a monolith to reverence

It comes for me, it’s here for me

It comes for me, it’s here

So hell has come to take me home

Well let me burn this man before I go

And the sun comes out

Let the flames devour

So serene, I have defined my hour

Entertain my demons

They dance to the scene

Of this fool that will soon be entombed

Another day, along a poets’ sage

I walk a line where thoughts awaken me

In violet planes the flesh is stripped away

A soft goodbye, annihilation breathes

The beast awakens, a monolith to reverence

It comes for me, it’s here for me

It comes for me, it’s here

So hell has come to take me home

Well let me burn this man before I go

And the sun comes out

Let the flames devour

So serene, I have defined my hour

Entertain my demons

They dance to the scene

Of this fool that will soon be entombed

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

So hell has come to take me home

I swear they’ll try anything

They run in my head

And I’m so tired of fighting my way

I swear they’ll do everything

To keep me with them

The more I try the less is left of me

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

Entertain as they dance

In my head they’re with me

Hell to pay

Hell to bleed

They all say never to leave

Another night

Another day

A soft goodbye

This is my ending tune

Formed in the summer of 2017, Dutch band Mountain Eye has as mentioned above taken the alternative metal sound that bands like Korn, Linkin Park and Slipknot presented to the world in the beginning of the century and transformed it to a sound that fits our decade. Mountain Eyer ecently signed to Golden Robot Records / Crusader Records.

My Last Winter Trail is about releasing oneself physically and spiritually from the demons that try to crush the very essence of who we are and feed on our failures and fears. Musically, the dark synths create an ominous introduction until the song breaks loose into an epic choir-like chorus with pounding drums and melodic guitars. Intricate and technical passages and variations show the incredible depth of the band.

What does it mean to be human? Do we have to become better versions of ourselves? Why is humanity stuck in the same old patterns? With their new single Synopsis, Dutch alternative metal band Mountain Eye take a closer look at these themes.

On their debut album Roads Uncharted, released in January 2019, Mountain Eye explores the extremes of life; the thin line between happiness and sadness that we all experience, and that’s what makes us all human. Roads Uncharted was received positively by the metal press, with 20 positive reviews, as well as online listeners streaming the album over 900k times so far.‘Synopsis was featured on the Spotify official playlist New Blood.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7231 Articles)
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.
