"The Herald" is a conscious journey of the mind and soul. It is the story of an ordinary man who claims freedom and denies religion and cultural restrictions of any kind. Most of all, it focuses on the strong concept of will and on the power for everyone to create its own god out of himself.

Track Name: The Apostate
Breeding cursed snakes in the orchard
Treason to rise standing tall
Stiffed hangman sold to the empire
Path of the soul deprived of its aim

Grand ruins
Hidden by the desert

Vengeful visions haunt me at night
I shall rule and conquer the sun
From these ruins I will rise
Nimrod, thy will be done

At the gates of Ishtar
I deny the word of God

I am bound to ravage heavens
Myself as the only weapon
I am the king, kill them for me
I am the king, kill them for me

I am the son who brings no God
I am the man who brings the flame
Track Name: The Desert
Two thousand years of pious wane
Ripping off wisdom
Spewing lies
The tower is burning in an ocean of sin
Behold! Your holy flesh is rotting
Caught in a rapture of ignorance
You roam on these rubbles
Preaching and kneeling
To serve the last prophecy
Hark is voice
Your belief is falling
We all sink in a saturnian chaos

Bereft of daylight
Through hail and mist
A fiery deluge will erase it all
Lost in a desert
With no salvation
Fallen the kingdom
Gone is the savior
The oath is taken
I will ascend

Then I stumble
And I crawl
As the burning wind blows
But my will is stronger
I climbed that tower
For my throne

As I walk past the doorgate
Chaos awakens
The answer lies there

The altar of knowledge
I seek within
The shrine of wisdom
I long to see
The spark of reason
I have to keep
My own perdition
I must redeem
Track Name: The Tower
I climbed this tower
Meter by meter
I fall, then I rise again
My heart beats in my chest
My blood flows in my veins

I glance down: a desert
Where nothing grows and nothing rises
I glance up: the universe
Where my will lives
And my body’ll die
I see the top
The stars blind my eyes
I see.

They kneel here
Praying the eye
No one is answering on the mount Sinai
They hail an absent God
Martyr of his own slaves
The throneless lord, so poor, so weak
He pours the water drowning the fire
Hosannah to the false man that was slain
Hosannah to the lamb that was slain
Track Name: The Exile
I am the witness
I light the path
Born from Eos
And raised in chaos
Here on this tower
I saw perdition
Flock of sheep
Where is your shepherd?

Flock of sheep
Who is your leader?
Flock of sheep
You’ve got no aim

Shine, morning star
Come forth, and speak the truth

I brought the flames to Eden

As time flows you drown in the river
Baptizing your life in death
Now you float towards the shore
Call us Ishmael

Brothers and sisters
Rise up on them

For I am blind to the light of your God
For I shall be plural to face the unique
For I’ll be wooden, burned down and rebuilt

Your pillars have failed
And (the) beacon has crumbled
Dispose of your dead
Now light all your pyres
For those who bow will crawl forever
And those who starve will feed on brothers
Either eradicate the root of weakness
And walk on burnt idols
Or rot with great shame
Step back and dare not
To come forth
Track Name: The Monarch
Tall on the pinnacle
Stands the untold
My eyes be eagles
To soar the oceans
I shall bleed on the soil
I shall create what your fear

Brother of mine
This is my endless crusade
Above you I build my kingdom
Shine, holy light
I will be blind
Shine, holy light
Burn down my walls.

Heathen denial
My war rages on
Lust for salvation
Evil unfolds

I, the king
I the ruler
No god nor priests
No men to worship
Hear me, spread my word
I reached the sun and stole the flame
I brought light for you to see
I monarch, master,
Stare as I rise
High above the mountains, towering
I alone, I climbed and saw
I cursed God and broke his rules
Above me there’s no law

Reaching redemption
Eden is lost
Foul creation
The God born from man

I saw the dusk and found new light
Alone I wander, I bear this
Now I face the sky
Track Name: The Dawn
I’ve seen the meaning of it all
I had a glimpse of wisdom
I saw the demon of the fall
But human voices wake me,
And I drown.

Disdainful race,
Too small to understand
Regretful reace,
Sterile, naïve.
Track Name: The Throne
Behold! My will be done
Rising to the sky
To conquer the throne of reason and truth
Hail me

I am the guiding light
I am the morning star
Let freedom pave my way
Let faith open the sea
Hail me

Endless, revolving

My throne
Has been built
The sun has risen
