"The new star on the dark gothic metal sky…" (Sonic Seducer)
These five clowns will show you no mercy when it comes to your secret longings and fantasies, they will show you that you're not as perfect as you always thought. Hard, emotional and often fast passed. Dark but with the swing of a broken, shrieking carousel. Founded in the fall of 2012 by singer Tim Strouken and drummer Manuel Hassler, they soon became a ballpark figure in the german gothic metal scene. While they are mainly inspired by dark metal and goth metal of the 90ies, they also brought very modern, metalcore driven riffs into their music when guitarist Dominik Bolter joined. And finally in july 2013 they reached their full live-strength with bassist Yannick Bolter and guitarist Julian Langer. Live shows are intense, singer Tim Strouken will abduct you into a world where dust is the new shiny and beauty and ugly are synonyms.

Ikarus

I'm an eagle,
i'm a king,
i'm the ruler, cannot sin.

I'm principle,
no natural, no law.

there's no think apostroph,
there's no such thing as enough is enough!

Icaros, Icaros, don't fly so high,
Icaros, please recall,
pride comes before a fall.
We think: „we're gods!“
Ignore our nature and laugh into the face of faith.

It's a story, old as mankind, climbing mountains we are not ought to climb.
Diving waters, way to deep, building towers when we need to creep.
We lack respect for what is given and are the pestilence that poisons unforgiven.
But the only thing we need to do is: Sit, lean back and wait for it!

Higher, faster, further, up to the sun!
Higher, faster, further in every thing we've done.
We reach up ignorant for foe and friend,
higher, faster, further until the end.

There's no future left in this profit grasping world!

Higher, faster, further, up to the sun!
Higher, faster, further in every thing we've done.
We reach up ignorant for foe and friend,
higher, faster, further until the end.

There's no future left in this profit grasping world!

I'm an eagle,
i'm a king,
i'm the ruler, cannot sin.

I'm principle,
no natural, no law.

there's no think apostroph,
there's no such thing as enough is enough!

Icaros, Icaros, don't fly so high,
Icaros, please recall,
pride comes before a fall.
We think: „we're gods!“
Ignore our nature and laugh into the face of faith.

Oh, i'm wandering between night and day,
You know, what they say?

The night is blackest before dawn
And we keep up our sadest song,
Claustrophobia is what we bring.
The nightmares and a sadistic grin.

I search for beauty in the sharpness of this knife,
I'm on the sidewalk of my own life.
Thats why…

…I stear my ship against the cliff,
Darkness is about to break in!
Time is running…
I feel confused, i feel abused,
It's the story of my life,
Time is running out!

I blind folded feel my way through the mist
I keep on trying, i insist,
Thats why…

…I stear my ship against the cliff,
Darkness is about to break in!
Time is running…
I feel confused, i feel abused,
It's the story of my life,
Time is running out!

The night is blackest before dawn
And we keep up our sadest song,
Claustrophobia is what we bring.
The nightmares and a sadistic grin.

I crawl out of this obsidian black
I crawl out of this obsidian black
I crawl out of this obsidian black
I crawl out of this obsidian black
