Mikko The first, great album find of 2013 for me! This album succeeds at sounding fresh in it's genre (kinda hard to categorize though). The Soviet space race concept fits the albums mood perfectly too. Thanks to Angry Metal Guy, for pointing this out!

I scream through the air, winter sky eats my fire They feel the shockwave below At the edge of the world, my power plants cry I'll show the yanki our might. I am thunder, comrades Glorious thunder We are the first, the last Above this world I bring superior air power Stare death in the eye Witness superior air power Faster than all I bring superior air power Stare death in the eye Witness superior air power Faster than all I am superior airpower Witness superior airpower I am superior airpower Witness superior airpower We go Higher than Farther than Faster than Stronger than all

Great Bear 03:18
Born of the square Five years until the flame Thousands called to the forge Hammered of iron The Great Bear will rise Will rise, on red flame From your burden this monument seizes Our victory! Now harvest destiny Our chariot arrives The Great Bear will rise Will rise, on red flame From your burden this monument seizes Our victory! Heavy lifter, lifting all Heavy lifter, lifts us all Heavy lifter, lifting all Heavy lifter, lifts us all

Insignia 03:07
You are the greatest sons You’ll make the Mother proud Go bring us what is ours It’s ours The world will know your names Bravely, ride The Bear Go bring us what is ours It’s ours The honor is mine, honor is mine Glory is, glory is mine

All is now black, under weight of ten earths I can’t find the lights anymore I awake in a haze, steady the grip Muscles in revolt, yet gaining control This is no match for me A bear is no match for me No rest, missteps lead to tragedy We push on, we the strong We push on, we the strong This is no match for me A bear is no match for me We push on, we the strong We push on, we the strong

Not coming home Not coming home Not coming home You’re not coming home I’ll ride the bear to meet the god of war A noble sacrifice, I’ve made this choice Nightward, righteous, I will soar So I’ll give you up, my earthly rose And then we’ll see what no man’s seen But what becomes of me? Why can’t we run? This is not fate! How dare you doubt me? It has to be this way The State will take care of you. The order’s given, and orders stand. You’ll do your part and get in line Why do you abandon me? How can I live, if you’re not coming home? Not coming home Not coming home Not coming home I’m not coming home...

Light 03:55
I lost myself for this but now We march to eternity, unrivaled I’ve chosen glory over home We exceed the reach of ground command The light has finally reached my eyes This light Revealing It’s glorious Above this world Glory to the explorers Glory to the explorers of Mars No glory to these explorers No glory to these explorers I wrongly scorned her My sorrow grows The Bear it groans The void, my home

about

Silencer Denver, Colorado

Silencer, formed in 1998, evolved heavy metal in a way that roots back to the classics while visiting it's boundaries. While Death of Awe and Divisions are razor sharp, full-blast thrash, 2012 brings The Great Bear, the bands first concept album which digs heartily into their collective past and brings forth their most ambitious journey yet. Ride the Bear 9/25/2012. ... more
