Christopher Always a skeptic when it comes to power metal but this isn't just power metal as it blends folk and death metal into this new style, Power Death metal? Naw, forget the label. Never heard anything like it before but I'm digging this, alot! Canadian talent at its finest. Favorite track: Soulstorm.

Archie123 First time listening to UTA and was totally blown away! With an awesome lead vocalist this band create stunning lyrics and powerful, tight Symphonic metal. I love Nightwish, Epica and Within Temptation, this band will reap similar success I hope.

Dave Favorite track: Upon Ashen Wings.

He can not eat, he can not sleep, he can not see that death is coming, I know there’s nothing more I can do In fits and dreams he speaks to me, he says these things beyond belief; I can not take his words as truth He comes to say his piece... I know he’s travelled so far to find me in this landscape, perilous and full of unknown treachery And now he’s giving his life to tell me things I can’t face, how could I betray his utter trust in me? CHORUS: And with his final breath he, imparts his vital prophecy… Carry on for your generation, you are the one to guide them all Don’t delay, your time has come, lead the way into a brighter dawn I must prepare for the path before me, ever daunting, indemnify for my naiveté And I can no longer hide away pretending nothing, when the world is ending right in front of me CHORUS And to bring honour to his soul, I will accept this righteous role This nameless prophet that could see, that which resides inside of me Deep inside, I reconcile my fear Sustain my sickening apathy for good For the worthiest of men, but a promise escapes me Wicked blood will run CHORUS ( x a million)
This night my son, keep your eyes to the sky, against the black see their shadows for miles They come with vengeance and hate in their hearts, it’s time, they fly, prepare There’s no escape when they take to the air So come on over, to the other side, where it is colder CHORUS: Hear tell of these wingless angels flight, escaping through the night Racing over silent mountain sentries, soaring for their lives They’ve chosen their side there is no going back, and Heaven’s gates they are closing for good So when they fight they will fight to the end, it’s time, unite, defend And they’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with men So come on over, to the other side, where you are stronger CHORUS Cast out and betrayed for fighting against His terror, broken by the pain but rising again and again
Soulstorm 02:50
There is a storm coming, I can feel it in my soul, watching the sky go dark as thunder speaks to me Menacing clouds approaching, they will wrap us in the cold, tempest rising CHORUS: Electrify! Lightning spans the corners of my mind, abandon all control; release the power Electrify! Arcing through my fingers, sparks will fly, overloaded it’s my final hour There is no time for running, feel the static in the air, I can’t delay the charge it’s growing constantly Try to escape, I’ll find you, I am here and everywhere, tension building CHORUS Crushed and contorted, no more a human heart If I embrace electric destiny, always an internal hurricane CHORUS Surging with the force, I can feel it, I’ll electrify!
Arise 04:56
I can’t shake this heavy burden, as we pass the mountains deep in foreign land I am travelling with the legions, of a power that would seek to conquer man And I must admit the lie, I’ve been keeping this whole time, I should fight for the other side So with all my strength and pride I stand up and I cry CHORUS: Arise and follow your heart again, all souls in one are intertwined Brothers in arms we will meet the end, and find the light beyond this life Wander the fields again, as we’ve done in ages past Life was so simple then, we must push on, we can’t look back There’s no time for hesitation, come and join me now, there’s glory to be had We’re protectors of the innocent, we must break the bonds of villainous command And if they dare stand in our way, they will feel our wrath this day, there’s no stopping victory So with heart and dignity we’ll stand up and we’ll say CHORUS The wars of yesterday, we can not let them fade with time We must learn from our mistakes, remember well the sacrifice Follow the path of righteousness, honour in death; the ultimate Repudiate your selfish ways, enlightenment, is in your hands
