about

“Open Ground” is a concious attempt to reconcile the aggressive environment with fragile & vulnerable spirit of a human nature. Speaking of tags, our new project is kinda misalliance kid of cybergrime fuzz’n’drones with new wave aesthetics.
It’s a perfect reflection of these hard times we’ve been passing through the last couple of years. Either global, local or personal. The fear of war, solitude, disintegration & isolation along with our open hearts to the world. Withstanding the madness we’re surrounded by. Thus it couldn’t be that much listener friendly stuff as before.
We deeply appreciate the help & support for this project from our friends & fans from all around the world.

Track Name: Kill Or Be Killed
So many days I couldn't sleep
Shivering, crushing teeth
Grinding pills, counting shades
In google deep dream
Come and be done with me!
Go ahead I’m alive, and I’ve got my aim on you
Go ahead I’m alive and I’m watching you
I am hunting you!
I left you in the dust
You’re so low, I’m so high
I won't let you win this fight
You’re so low, I’m so high
Go ahead I’m alive, got my aim on you
Go ahead I’m alive and I’m haunting you
I am watching you
(Come take a bite of me)
Don’t pretend you’re alive I’ve been watching you
(Come and be done with me)
Don’t pretend you’re alive I’m still watching you
Track Name: Open Ground (feat. Noonwraith)
What we fear becomes real
You never know
Open your eyes slowly
Follow the lines
You never know
I’m giving up taking off the ground
I feel like beheaded one
All alone in the crowd
I am the beheaded one
Since the moment I couldn’t find
Find your face in the crowd
I’m breaking off this
Since the moment I couldn’t fight
Track Name: Everfrost
Say it out loud
Tell ‘em about your loss
By the frozen shore
Let your fever go
Say it out loud
But another word -
A bone inside your throat
Leaving you not,
Written on the tombstone
Say it out loud
Can’t you see your love drowns
Spinning in the surge
Say it out loud
He’s not the one you used to know
Cheating on you so
The one you’ve loved
Trapped in ever frost
The one you’ve lost
You've got to know
You have to follow another voice
That breaks you though the walls
You have to go on
You have to vow to another one
Who brings you a new crown
You’ve got to run if possible
Track Name: Black Sands
In oblivion
We act so naive
Is your life that surreal?
Your grief is such a deceit
Because you know what I mean
And that's so clear
(In oblivion)
Did you ask yourself
How fake is your innocence
You forgot all the truth and you are not scared
Have you ever asked yourself
While burying the evidence
In these black sands
Have we come too far to defend ourselves?
This ideal world
Once been revealed
I saw in my dreams
You were absent here
My belief is so weak and bitter
I don't have what you need
It was already clear.
Why have we started the war for gold
As soon as the winds got dirty and cold
Another word and I swear we're done
Burning the bridge so pointless and dull
In oblivion
Did you ask yourself
How fake is your innocence
You forgot all the truth and you are not scared
Have you ever asked yourself
While burying the evidence
In these black sands
We came too far to defend ourselves
