Linus Brorsson Clear Wintersun/Jari influenses, and that's not bad in any way! (Faded Leaves =/= Silver Leaves any one?) Quite a few song's that wary in recording quality, but the concept is great and I really appreciate it as a whole! Extra points for the good growling done by the vocalist. Favorite track: Winter's Tears.

Track Name: Heart Maiden
I have sailed these seas so long
The brutal winds, my vision blurred
From a distance I can hear a song
The sweetest sound I've ever heard

Oh estranged man of the sea, your eyes have grown tired, and weak
Come into my arms and I shall show you the way
Oh maiden that calls to me, that comes to set me free.
The mighty winds blow me astray

Her warm embrace, I dare not look upon that face
Of the fair maiden who has stolen my heart
The valkyrie song, will vanquish all that is wrong
The sweetest sound that never was

Oh estranged man of the sea, your eyes have grown tired, and weak
Come into my arms and I shall show you the way
Oh maiden that calls to me, that comes to set me free.
The mighty winds blow me astray

Oh Maiden that calls to me, my eyes are open and clearly see.
The path that lays before my feet, (our hearts will guide, the way!)
Your sweet words call to me, the wind carries them to my cheek.
The look in your eye, lifts me off my feet.
Track Name: Winter's Tears
Winter, a wonderland of hallowed peace,
At first glance, but a mystery unravels before your eyes,
The tundra vast like a sea of sorrow
Stretching beyond the sight of a mortal man.

A light dusting over my mind (The wonder of the cold sweeps over me)
Holds the answers to cerebral bliss, (the answer that will set me free)
A haunting melody, though foreign, (I shan't be afraid, it's mighty hand will lead the way)
Its footsteps through my soul are familiar

Satisfying a desire to know all,
But hold on to a nothing of memories.
Blackened I have become blinded like a horse,
Pulling fates carriage aimlessly

The sorrow pours from my soul (and washes me away)
Like the avalanche high from the peaks (the lone mountain leads me astray)
To the stars I will rest (they will hold the answer)
For wintry salvation I seek

Winter's Tears, one of a kind,
Never were there two so a like,
the stars, weeping for the sun to dry up and hide,
All the frozen tears that fall from the sky.

Oh wanderer, you are weary. The answer can be found from all around you. Let go.

Winter's Tears, one of a kind,
Never were there two so a like,
The stars, weeping for the sun to dry up and hide,
All the frozen tears that fall from the sky.
Track Name: Sorrow
Death, stared at me, its pale face calling from the night sky
I was frozen, tempted to leave this world behind
My mind was flooded with memories of winter and sorrow
Should I forfeit time to join the endless world of stars

Sorrow washes over my heart,
Like the infinite cold rain it chills my soul
These thoughts torment and cloud my mind,
I am withering away, to leave this world behind.
And a storm of thoughts raged in my mind,
My internal fire grew cold and died,
My spirit escaped to join the stars
To the sky I will fly and slip through the vales of time

Come fly with me, together we'll be free
We'll leave this world behind...
Just call my name, and I'll be there
To become the stars you see in the night

Release the sorrow inside!

This burden's too much to bare
And the cold winds of the north force me to my knees
The desire to go on was there,
But the will to live was not.
I submit to you mother north,
Absorb my body as one.
Forever I am the Spirit,
Of the cold north

I am the cold! (feel the sting)
I am the wolf! (feel the loneliness take you)
I am the stars! (watch me drift into vast emptiness)
I am the dying fire! (the face of death haunting you!)

Sorrow washes over my heart,
Like the infinite cold rain it chills my soul
These thoughts torment and cloud my mind,
I am withering away, to leave this world behind.
And a storm of thoughts raged in my mind,
My internal fire grew cold and died,
My spirit escaped to join the stars
To the sky I will fly and slip through the vales of time

The vales of time, are withering away
The thoughts are storming inside my mind.
I am an empty shell, that's withering away.
Track Name: Faded Leaves
Forest as old as time, beckons to me timid but strong,
The green is life, whispering a tune, unheard longing to sing.
An old man sits, at the clearings edge, i arrived and then he said,
Come young wanderer, hear my lore, this beautiful forests time is short.

Oh wandering lad, oh longing soul
This forest is ancient as I am old
Like you i was young and green like the trees
But slowly I'm dying like the fading leaves

Ways we parted and onward i went, through the enchanting scent of fauna and flora.
To a river i came, and the climate did change, to a rain, that was cold as the snow.
The sight of the dead forest, brought tears to my eyes.
I felt like a broken spirit, kneeling beneath a crimson sky.

Oh wandering lad, oh longing soul,
This forest is ancient as old man foretold,
Now i am young and green like the trees,
But with time we all wither like the fading leaves.

The leaves faded from the trees
They withered and died
Silence fell across the land
Sorrow filled the hearts of these
That fell when their lives
Slipped through their fingers like sand
Time went on as time will do
Lives, they come and go
The wanderer took time's hand
It took its toll, through and through
It was all foretold
The boy became the old man

Now i am brittle, my feet are like ash,
I live in green forest until death will outlash,
Along comes young wanderer, bright and anew,
So ill pass along knowledge given to few.

Time brings healing and brings death,
Up until your final breath
In life's grand scheme
We're fading leaves.
Old mans words...
Burning bright as the crimson sky,
That night,
I'm faded away.

Oh wandering lad, oh longing soul
This forest is ancient as I am old
Like you i was young and green like the trees
But slowly I'm dying like the fading leaves.
