Nicholas Underhay A perfect fit for the concept of always leaving your audience wanting more. It's both tragic and spot on that it's only five tracks. Like mastodon, baroness and gojira had some progressive metal babies, this is superb stuff! Favorite track: Acid Realm.

kriscarterart The first track blew my mind and sealed the deal. Yeyin is how it feels to get your first kiss, win the lottery and be the first person to step on the moon. You won't regret buying this album. You WILL regret not buying it. Favorite track: Yeyin.

Yeyin 04:07
Into visions Creating life beyond the realms Feeding upon the sources Ancient structures Put together in the light In the dark desert land (Lies ) Deep in the corners (Death) Crushing with fear (Feeding) Into the madness of Yeyin Here they worship Through the halls of the Oth War is on their minds Secret beings Guarding the light of the temple Death will soon follow Chorus Through tunnels Entering the pass of Hytuss They wait between the rises Who is real Trust is lost in corruption I'll find my own way out Chorus

Feed the sky The truth circles you Speak of darkness Useless in light Forever in sight Useless in light Forever in sight Point arrows Into clouds Point arrows Into clouds

Dark Columns 04:06
Falling out Of suspended boulders Violet Her breath takes its form (Circling around levitated masses) Imagine A future self Exiting A present life (Circling around levitated masses) Ride Ride riding through Seven walls of fire Ride Eyes on you To behead the master Beastmaker Holding his ground Sorcerer Bracing for the sound (Circling around levitated masses, the oracle faces the ritual) Ride Ride riding through Seven walls of fire Ride Eyes on you To behead the master Feed the beasts Elixirs Dragging chains Let the bastards in

Acid Realm 03:30
I have been hunting for days All through the canyon Only the mountains remain It is you, you I must conquer Beast Creature of might Balancing celestial orbs Fear Dreaming of blood Runs down the face of the beast Shapes of the temple descend Into the portal Acid is burning my flesh Prey is in my sight Beast Creature of might Balancing celestial orbs Fear Dreaming of blood Runs down the face of the beast Though his thoughts are so real I myself am the beast in my mind
5.
Desert Rites 05:17
He left me She is no one, she is forgotten The desert I am your god I am forever I belong down this road I have lost I have done this before I am lost The serpent Tar over shields I will be unearthed The moonlight Grease over fire I am the river I belong down this road I have lost I have done this before I am lost Burning undeciphered scripts of their past Spirits claw at the gallows Vile is the creature that you have become I am the mist, I am the fear in the air I belong down this road I have lost I have done this before I am god

about

"The band have emphasised their more contemporary metal side on this EP, although there’s certainly enough classic metal influences here as well. With some tasty psychedelic desert rock moments sprinkled around, I don’t think it’s too far of a stretch to describe this EP as a mix of Mastodon, Red Fang, Baroness, and Karma to Burn."

-Wonderbox Metal

"They take this approach and throw in some psychedelic and stoner metal twists as icing on the cake. While listening, one may be able to draw parallels to greats such as Motörhead, Black Sabbath, even Mastodon and many more. All the while, Druids still throw in their own kind of groove on the way to their own greatness. Altogether, it makes for quite the enjoyable experience."

- The Circle Pit
