Waking Dream
Open my eyes in a daze How long has it been? Am I so out of place? Warmth I can no longer feel My mountain is gone, I’m surrounded by steel The strangest of structures arises ahead, seems to be held up by nothing Where have I gone, do I dream? How can the stars be all I can see? Dark embrace Has someone awakened me? Please show your face Cold and quiet space CHORUS: Out so far beyond stars and the sun, filling my heart up with wonder, unknown Now, to the edge of imagination, open my eyes to phenomenon, and hope Feverishly I explore Searching for someone, there has to be more I can’t be the only one here My path always guides me, there’s nothing to fear Then why do I feel so immensely alone, this can’t be the end of my story Onward I go once again, fighting my way to my final breath Into the abyss CHORUS Summon the strength of millenniums past, forged by the fire and flame I am the weapon of empires vast, Immortal is more than a name CHORUS Cry into the chasm ahead, into to the sky never-ending, although Time will tell if I’m worthy of it, a future of final transcending, alone
Through Stars
Return to Me
Faster Than Light
The Wind that Shapes the Land
Carry the Flame


Less than a year after the release of their covers EP Explorers, Canadian melodic power metal quartet UNLEASH THE ARCHERS have sharpened their arrows and hit the bullseye once again with their fifth full-length album, Abyss. Featuring 10 new tracks, this adventure is a concept album and sequel to 2017’s Apex, and was once again recorded with legendary producer Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios in Denmark. Abyss succeeds in showcasing the mind-blowing technical craftmanship of the young four-piece with the perfect mix of highly complex, catchy bangers and moody, synth-infused power ballads. Pairing traditional heavy sounds in the vein of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest with fast-paced power metal, the album is once again accented by frontwoman Brittney Slayes' raw four octave mezzo-soprano, shining both in powerful anthems like the outstanding title track “Abyss” as well as the fragile intro of the epic “The Wind That Shapes The Land”, and contrasted with guttural screams on the soaring “Return To Me” or the transcendent album closer “Afterlife". The quartet from Vancouver has forged their own niche in the world of metal and cemented it with memorable live shows all over the world, and now, a lucky 13 years after their inception, they've delivered their strongest album to date.
