Are you ready?

«The nightmare is alive during the day and this person is seeking some kind of shelter at night in her dreams, because when we are asleep we are not forced to face the pain and the fear of our struggles. Fear is an important element in this song like a conscious entity, and the lyrics mirror the conversation between the person and the fear itself. This song has been chosen as the first single of the album for a specific reason: it contains all the various elements of our signature ways of musical expression within one song, in a compact form».

«It has clean and harsh female vocals, male growls, fast shredding themes, heavy headbanger stuff, a guitar solo, a keyboard solo, a twin solo, and all of this crowned with a memorable chorus melody. This song is an adrenaline bomb from start to finish and with it’s ferocious pace, it ignites very intense emotions within us and the listeners as well from the first note to the last», – tells the band about Retreat Into Dreamland».

Esperfall`s music is infused with the melodic and versatile, yet dark and tight elements of the Northern metal genre. This musical composition is made even more exciting with the combination of clean and harsh female vocals, complemented by male growls.

The themes of their songs revolve mainly around various emotional and mental struggles, and how overcoming these challenges through great effort can make us grow and prosper in the long run.

Hard to breathe, hard to smile

Only a few know that I lie

I’m a visitor during the day

What did I do? What did I say?

The mark on you of the evil eye

Will burn on you till the end of time

You invoked me, don’t ask me why

You invoked me, I’m your kin

I’m your child

Every movement will amplify

The curse on me of the evil eye

My own evil eye is prying inside

My curse is me and I can’t hide

The night takes and hides me

I bathe in a soothing ocean of tears

I scry into the surface of the sea

Maybe this world could save me

Save me please

You are like an animal crawling in a dream

You’re deaf by now but I can hear you scream

Anywhere you turn you run into me

You are blind but all you see is me

All you hear is me / All I hear is you

All you feel is me / All I feel is you

All you taste is me / All I taste is you

All you fear is me / All I fear is you


About Ulf Backstrøm (7174 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.
