about

WHATEVER YOU PAY FOR THIS ALBUM GOES DIRECT TO SEA SHEPHERD - SO PLEASE ADD A FEW EXTRA $$ IF YOU CAN! WHY...?

Two good reasons:

1. Sea Shepherd's direct action campaigns are stopping the brutal and unnecessary mass killing of dolphins and whales, and defending the oceans from human greed.

2. Four hours of music this good is worth more than $12 and you know it.

Featuring new and established artists from 20 countries; principally from the neoclassical, neofolk, and dark ambient genres. Many of them have donated previously unreleased material for this cause, and a number have also provided their own personal statements in support of it in their track information. The battle to end this barbaric practise is slowly gaining ground, and we hope that the proceeds of this compilation will contribute towards the final closure of this senseless and unnecessary slaughter.

Please make an extra donation!

Track Name: Osewoudt - De sloop van onschuld
Eindeloze velden,
eeuwenoude bomen.
Vertellen het verhaal,
wat is en wat gaat komen.

Met bloed doordrenkte zeeën,
megalomane waanideeën.
Moord en doodslag!
En dat alles met een glimlach.

De sloop van onschuld,
een morbide wens vervuld.
Het recht van de sterkste!

Met voorbedachte rade,
naar de afgrond gebracht.
Voor de natuur geen genade
maar ondoordacht op jacht.

Aan het einde van de dag,
ondanks alle techniek.
Een hard gelag,
met passende repliek;

Apocalyps!

De sloop van onschuld,
een morbide wens vervuld
Het recht van de sterkste!
Track Name: Peter Bjärgö & Matt Howden - A quiet thought
Just like the serpent, who bites its own tail.
I showed you the fire that burns..
I showed you a wound that will never heal.

You threw me back where I belong,
Back into the shadows,
There behind the curtains of shame... to quietly fade
Track Name: Seventh Harmonic - Bidding grief farewell
Greeting blissful joy
Regrets will never sound
Under lovers’ spell
Letting music dwell

Bidding grief farewell
Awakening hymn of love
Ringing out the tunes
Of undying flames

With the clearest light
And the spirits within
Through chanting divine
Bewitching charms entwine
Lustfulness is called
Craving thirst to quench
Roused from dreamless sleep
Drowsed into seduction

Vocation of nature's poetry
Immortal voices of beauty
I call upon amorous tunes
I send for wings of desire
Track Name: Strydwolf - Auferstehung
Wird mich getödtet haben
Die Welt mit ihrem Leid,
Soll man mich hier begraben
Tief in die Einsamkeit.
Zieht dann auf seiner Reise
Der Lenz durch's weite Land,
Pocht er bei acht ganz leise
An's Grab mit seiner Hand.

Dann steig' ich voll Verlangen
Hervor und blick' umher,
Der Mond ist aufgegangen,
Der kennt mich wohl nicht mehr,
Der Wald nur flüstert leise:
"Den hab' ich schon geseh'n!"
Die Blumen rings im Kreise
Schlaftrunken mich umstehn.

Ich aber seh' mich nieder
Aus einen moosgen Stein
Und singe Frühlingslieder
Grad in die Nacht hinein
Und meine Klänge locken
Die Vöglein all' heran,
Die Rehe, halb erschrocken,
Sehn mich verwundert an.

Und sind dann meine Lieder
Verklungen in der Luft,
Leg' ich mich ruhig wieder
Zurück in meine Gruft,
Zu schlummern unteren Moose,
Bis mich im Jahr darauf
Aufs Neu' der Lenz, der lose,
Pocht von den Todten auf.
Track Name: Subfinal -The eternal
On a quest
For youth
All I
found
Was the grim biting
of
Doubt

Images
Of no man’s land
And burning water
Cathedrals
Raised
By the sea
In the hunt
For evermore
And immortality

In the dim
A vertical halo horizon
The tower and the temple

A journey
Back to youth
Before
Time splintered
On every cliff

Fragile
The life of man
Friends lost along the ways
And rays
Of liquid light
And
Foaming water

I drank to every one
Of them
I drank
The darkness
In every one

And
As I changed
The oceans
Didn’t

For
The sea is
Eternal
But I am
Not

There is no truth
But doubt

The sea is
Eternal
But I am
Not

The sea is
Eternal...
Track Name: Xavier de la Huerga (feat. Abi Finch) - Deep Skies Mermaid
You swim so deep into the heart
You swim so fast into the heart of sky
Deep skies mermaid singing
I wanna go where you always go
Back to the head-springs where light is born
Upstream

She dives headlong into the Mystery
She’s dancing like a naked flame inside the watery abyss
She dives headlong into the Mystery... with me

Vesica Piscis
Generatrix Throne
Navel of Heaven
Dolphins crowned in the maelstrom
Deep skies mermaid calling
Stella Maris
Let thy Queendom come
Spun above
Let our love be done in star-oceans
Deep skies mermaid calling us all home
You swim so deep into the heart
You swim so fast into the heart of fire

She dives headlong into the Mystery
A dream has taken care of my disease
The stream has taken me back to the sea... again
My salmon wisdom and her siren milk
In the cave
