about

Let There Be Fire is a fantasy rock experience based on some of my own favorite journeys through imaginative worlds such as Dark Souls, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones. Ranging from orchestral rock to contemplative synthpop, the album places you in a world of ice and darkness and promises hope that one day, at the end of our adventure, fire will rise again.

Track Name: Angel of the Dark
Snow capped skies
Standing by while cities
Perish in the reaches of the deep
Bloodlines fall
Lost it all, the pain of
Severing the bond we had as three

Here in a sanctum long abandoned
Unto the tinder falls a spark
I have a holy call to answer
To be an angel of the dark
So I will pray for death to take you
With my own cold and weary hands
And you'll arise reborn of ashes
Before the fire fades again

Close your eyes
Fire must die, and I will
Reap your embered spirit to survive
Let us rest
Never test the darkness
Keeping our own winter dream alive

One chosen path
A silent, tranquil
End without the purging fire
Fade to black like our desire
You've come too far
Unkindled like
I was before I saw the answer
To our rotting, hollow cancer
Now you have seen the father's anguish
Atop a painted glacier's peak
You've heard the tales of ash before you
From timeless legends that they speak
If you can listen now to reason
Then take the whispers to the heart
Forget this cold and black consumption
Forget this angel of the dark
Track Name: Traveler's Song
Sing for the lost, for eternal affairs
Sing to raise our spirits in great despair
Through the ashes of oblivion
Quick and unseen like the dragon's offspring
For we owe no debts and bow to no king
Every war has its costs and we've paid
Won by the bond of the party we've made

Warn with a call that the battle starts now
As the demons listen we strike them down
Fighting back the rifts of blood
Sent from the sky lies a angel in need
Give him muse to strengthen and words to heed
Heaven's doused and set alight
We're knocking on the gates of hell tonight

Broken swords and dragon's bones
Scattered on the way back home
Beating to the sound of clashing steel
When they're on our heels
Now chant the tales and legends told
Strengthened by the hymns of old
Weathered as this winding road is long
So we sing our traveler's song

Play out a spell in your sequence of chords
To inspire and sharpen our rusted swords
Echoing the whisper of the trees
Creep 'long a path where a thousand bards failed
From the thick West Tyrian jungle trails
Come from afar to set prisoners free
Into dark tangled depths from the open sea

Second chances don't come cheap
So keep alert and on your feet
An ancient spirit's song will heal our wounds
Unabashed by our defeat
Spite the bloodstains on these cobble streets
A message to the gods to see us through
Ever heard, yet rarely sung
So raise your voice and praise the sun
I call a new rebirth to keep us strong
Countless souls along the path
Lost to fiends and lords of wrath
But we'll return to play our final song
Track Name: Let There Be Fire (feat. Miracle of Sound)
Unleashed by a meeting of fate
A knight comes along as I wait
A desperate cry, the mantle of "chosen" passed on
So where would I even begin?
A saint in a valley of sin
Both above and below, the might of the gods is long gone

Hollowed life, new rebirth
Set forth a soldier consumed by the earth
Burdened down, last to die
Laden with monstrous souls deep inside
Sacrificed into flame
Now fed as kindling they all burn the same
With warmth to stave off the end
I'll quench the cinders' desire
To let there be fire again

Where light shines above the abyss
I'll pass through the darkening mists
At the toll of the bells, I'll rise to face legends divine
But where are the guardians now?
Our idolized sun has burned out
His throne left to ash, and his legacy soon to be mine

I'm a shadow apart
Passed through time and the dark
From a treacherous start
To the ember's last spark
Like a moth to the flame
I've wandered too close to come home
I'm ready now, ready for
Knights burned away
From the sun's glory days
Lifeless ashes give way
To this lone wolf, afraid
I will carry the light
And build on the pyres with my bones
Track Name: Blood and Snow
A somber face
Across the ocean
Into the wastes
The cold erosion
A birthright I have left before
The bloodshed of my father's shores
As tides have turned
The game is shifting
Our lanterns burn
The winds are whistling
A song of ice, a cry of fear
A cold heart's wrath is growing near

When every blade falls down defeated
When our own champions are slain
I will carry on
Above the fields of winter's creeping pain
In desperation
In the fields of blood and snow
When our faith is gone
And in this time, death is all we know

A reckoned will
The strive for power
To keep me still
Through the darkest hours
A beacon for these citizens
Protect and make them whole again
Don't let them see
That I've been shaken
My confidence
Was swiftly taken
When shadows fall on bitter lands
Their fates will rest in my own hands

Tales and superstitions
Out of a legend, come alive
Rise with colossal force
Against my burning drive
Victories overshadowed
Not of my own determination
Against the coming storm
I'm here to lead us through

The phoenix born again
In the ashes of the end
With open eyes, I'll bring the fire
The turning of the fates
Were blind to our mistakes
So hear my words to stay inspired
Life and death
Blood and snow
We'll eclipse the dead below
Flesh and bone
Bound and free
I will bring us victory
Marching north
Riding strong
Our own road ahead is long
Clench your teeth
Kill your fear
On this borderless frontier

When every blade falls down
For love or for a crown
We're out of time, and out of places left to hide
Track Name: Awakening
Sweet beckoning starlight calling my name
A million voices resounding the same
For all of the answers, I'll leave this behind
To channel my insight with time
Pulled by endless potential unseen
When the horizon's call intervenes

And I'm not sure where the dark turned into the light
The closing abyss between us
Break from our heritage, to keep our alignment upright
Escape from our own avarice
Awakening in the twilight

The shadow of greatness held over my head
A legacy written of power and dread
Betrayed by a mentor of days long ago
Branded by temptation
The deep undertow
Into spaces unseen
When the horizon's call intervenes

We're connected by fate
With our true selves awake
Every step and the road gets longer
Institutions will fade
From the new world we've made
When our minds turn to gray, we're stronger

A touch from the outskirts
A new hope unknown
Our power set equal
No longer alone
Don't leave me to fight back
The conflicts inside
I need you to save me
From desperate pride
Track Name: Monumental
Awake inside the nexus of the earth
A place of comfort, for spirits' birth
Your essence held, in my unbroken hands
A shadow lost to foiled plans
In the peak of the night
I will set you free
Now you're a ghost in the light
With the brand that we
Hold inside our hearts
Death's own counterpart
Respite from the reaper's lie

So may your dreams be monumental
When your spirit guides the way
Within the flicker of a candle
I will heal your soul's decay
We share a fate
Trapped on a page
By the author of our world's demise
In your eyes
I see the pain
Your targets slain
I will be the whispers in your mind
The demon inside

A dark embrace, the keeper of the lost
For this old city's unyielding cost
So take my hand and grow within my power
Oh, slayer of kings, let this demon devour
In the black of the night
You have been set free
Now you're a ghost in the light
With a purpose we
Know inside our hearts
Death's own counterpart
Respite from the reaper's lie

Strengthen your desire
Consume the hellfire
Don't let down your guard
Let in the darkness
You will defeat this
Trial of ancient gods
Take me in spirit
Demon adherent
When you're the last one to survive
Spirit, stay gentle
Next monumental
Will you keep the fire alive?

I, with the power inside set an end to these
Lies, from the deep and the quiet, set the whispers free
Sleep, my old enemy
Let come an end to me
Traveler, please let me fade
Here, at the end of the line all has been returned
Leave, from the land of the dead, and the souls upturned
Please, child, remember me
Lost in a memory
Let this demon rot away
Track Name: Ordinarily Human
I don't know where my own dreams end
And where the world begins
Am I alone in the core
Of the body I'm caged in
On the run from my origins
So scared to see the light
Am I awake, conscious flesh
Or will this static fade to white

Like the cracks in the pavement I've fractured my mind
Artificially soulless, perceiving that I'm
Ordinarily human but programmed to seem
Too unnatural to live my electric dreams

All the faults of reality
Are crawling in my head
If this machine is a pawn
Why do I lie awake in bed
Let me find where the program stops
To put my open eyes to sleep
No turning back, I'm set free
Within a herd of plastic sheep

Self-aware of my bounds
From the truth that we've found
Cut the wires, reject my own memory
Life inside of a shell
Mindless commands to quell
Human thought, so deeply ordinary

My existence has never been true
Reconciled with the dream that we knew
A hive of empty space
Flawed in function, humanity
Our lives were never free
Track Name: Paralyzed (feat. Lectro Dub)
So I know what you've been thinking
That you're the only thing that's lurking in the night
You aren't safe within in the shadows
'Cause tonight begins the hunt and you're in sight
Moonlit eyes under still and haunting sky
I can see within the soul you've stowed away
Tend your fire, draw this cursed evening's ire
Try your odds and you just might become the prey

That adrenaline rush when weapons fly
It's the fear that brings out that body high
So you know that I'm stuck here paralyzed with you
In a midnight clash of circumstance
At the mercy of my inhuman hands
I will bring myself to see this challenge through
It's a stalemate
In a twist of fate
When you're face to face with death itself
Grounds of battle where no heroes dwell
For a light thrill
Or a cold night's chill
You will be this hunter's golden prize
If you leave your guard down, paralyzed

Wicked traps are set around you
Not a lantern lit in sight to guide you home
You've been looking for the danger
And you sense my presence chilling in your bones
Take your stance, I will give you one fair chance
So let's make this dance a bloody masquerade
Understand how this ends, and what I am
You're against the night itself, so be afraid

As the darkness takes the light
Shadows crawling through the night
I will let you take my hand
But I hope you understand
That it's always been the same
Bringing thunder with the rain
But you shouldn't be afraid
Of the games they like to play
Every moment left alone
Gets to feeling more like home
Leaving chills under your skin
So let's start to settle in
Through the multitude of eyes
Taking shapes under the skies
Aren't you curious to see
What kind of monster you've set free
You try to scream but there's no sound
Try to hide but you'll be found
You'll be next to bear the mark
From the tendrils in the dark
Track Name: Incandescent
We're chasing ashes in the wind
When the end of fire begins
Just look to the sun and soon you'll find your aid
Don't fear the demons in the dark
We have a journey to embark
You're never alone, even when light will fade

We are the heroes
Never defeated
March to the ending
History repeated
Together as equals
At heart we're the same
Live in the present
and signal your name
Shine like a beacon
The light we are after
Here in the fallout
Bound in disaster
We're burdened with purpose
So here we remain
We're incandescent
A glorious flame

Overcome by this vivid dream
When the odds aren't what they seem
You've got a friend to watch your back and guide the way
Mistakes that set you back too far
I've set a sign just where you are
I've struggled as well, but I won't let you die today

Don't rush through the night's fog
Join these shining watchdogs
To chase your fear away when you're alone
Spite the rolling thunder
Tear these streets asunder
Toward a shining sun to call your own
Savor every moment
Here comes our atonement
When hell's own flames arise, we fight as one
Step forth now, ascended
Grossly incandescent
You're part of something more, a warming sun

Spent years waiting for the time
I'd come to see the truth behind
Darkness that we face, in our own lives
Cast aside your fear
We're strong in numbers
Holding back a fate of endless slumber
I want to stay to keep you strong
Side by side is where we belong
Track Name: Streets of Gold
I see the golden years behind us
I'm getting scared to move along
My inspiration has subsided
Without a muse to keep me strong
I can't remember our last victory
Was it the past, or just a dream?
The world we grew to love has crumbled
With my own efforts losing steam

I think I need your hands to lift me
I think I need your light to shine
There lies a trail of fire behind us
From a warstruck, weary time
I'm going to need a guide to show me
To walk me through the streets of gold
When death will meet us at the end
Of our own lost and broken road

I've made mistakes that devastated
Too many battles lost to tell
If I could turn back to time to find you
I'd find our confidence as well
So please forgive the tears and whispers
If you are only in my head
Sometimes I want to think you're listening
When every other voice is dead

The last survivor of the fall
Without a will to live at all
The sun is setting as
No one remains to hear my weakened call
I've come a thousand miles alone
Passed every kingdom's empty throne
And I can't shake the feeling
You'll arrange the stars to lead me home
Track Name: When Our Bodies Wash Ashore
Are you waking up afraid
Are you brave enough to glance behind the curtain
To use the eyes inside
Have you felt them in your sleep
Have you seen them in a vision that's uncertain
A dream outside your mind

Once come upon in an ancient land
I've heard the tales of an unseen hand
Myths of the otherside that took my breath away
Out in the deep I've seen something real
The mouth of the void that the waves conceal
Speaking low, as my thoughts draw near the fray

When the currents carry on
Lifeless waves we float along
There's a solemn depth below
Deeper truth I cannot know
Our own hastened time has come
In this death our minds are young
When our bodies wash ashore
Sorrow's children nevermore

Are you scared to look behind
Do you feel the breath of sunken apparitions
Awake, impure, divine
Now I'm sure they're coming soon
In the blackness my unholy friend has spoken
Through a shiver in my spine

My own senses wash away
I've let go of my eyes
Grant me life beyond the veil
For this humble sacrifice
You're the next to float along
As we all grow insane
Let the dream pull you below
No more watchers will remain

So bring me close to you
I want to be consumed
I'm transcending yet alive
Grant me vision deep inside
Transformed and unafraid
This earthly vessel fades
Track Name: Requiem for the King
Last kiss for a burned man
Dark child of the outlands
My heavy heart will take this last goodbye
Brave souls for a last stand
Spilled blood on my charred hands
A sacrifice to know you'll stay alive

When the fire has come
I will die to protect you
Light a candle for me
On this winter's day
My queen, don't cry tonight
There's a dream left to cling to
I will rest in ash
To leave you safe, I pray

Fresh snow for the dark years
Frost graced by a king's tears
My love, I must not waver now in death
Deep earth, where the fires glow
Faced down with the unknown
A whispered vow to you on my last breath

Always these winds will whisper
Laced with an endless shiver
Leave a light above for me to find
Last queen of lands forsaken
Hold strong when life is taken
Keep a memory, for peace of mind
Track Name: Monumental (VIP Remix)
Awake inside the nexus of the earth
A place of comfort, for spirits' birth
Your essence held, in my unbroken hands
A shadow lost to foiled plans
In the peak of the night
I will set you free
Now you're a ghost in the light
With the brand that we
Hold inside our hearts
Death's own counterpart
Respite from the reaper's lie

So may your dreams be monumental
When your spirit guides the way
Within the flicker of a candle
I will heal your soul's decay
We share a fate
Trapped on a page
By the author of our world's demise
In your eyes
I see the pain
Your targets slain
I will be the whispers in your mind
The demon inside

A dark embrace, the keeper of the lost

So take my hand and grow within my power
Oh, slayer of kings, let this demon devour
In the black of the night
You have been set free

Respite from the reaper's lie

Strengthen your desire

Don't let down your guard

You will defeat this
Trial of ancient gods
Take me in spirit
Demon adherent

Spirit, stay gentle

I, with the power inside set an end to these
Lies, from the deep and the quiet, set the whispers free
