Cristian Tane Really solid album, focused and cohesive, heavy and melodic at the same time; really good mix and sound quality too. Most of the White Walls trademark elements are there; however, it is lacking some of the adventurousness and complexity of previous albums. I guess this is an unfortunate side effect of trying to be more focused. Probably why my favorite tracks are the last 2 - the ones closest to what I love most about this band. Favorite track: Marche Funèbre.

Eye For An I 04:45
I saw the face of the one you call “God” But my dimension does not require that Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve something greater Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve so much more So down and isolated I feel I’m skin and bones I feel alright I hope it ends tonight I hope it ends, you see Cause this is not for me Let them all enter here Truth be told, I hold them dear I saw the face of the one you call “God” But my dimension does not require that Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve something greater Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve so much more Cast aside all your beliefs Think for yourself and you will see Bring the logic back to earth Down for us means nothing anymore Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve something greater Down for us means nothing anymore And I believe we can achieve so much more

I have found the silver cross We unite by clenching jaws How could I have been so lost? I must free you, what have I done?! Strange glass covers my eyes I have to see you but who am I now? Stay back, this is a lie Never before them Liars Never before them... I feel the pain has just begun And this time it will be much harder God help me To understand again my plan Because we both walk towards disaster I feel this pain has just begun God help me! I must free you, what have I done?! Strange glass covers my eyes I have to see you but who am I now? Stay back, this is a lie Never before them Liars Never before them... Hope is gone, I’m not blessed at all Moving slow through the cold, my love I said lover Come home to me Let’s rest together Lord, I can see I said lover, come home to me...

Holy Worse 04:50
I fought the restless, I fought today and I won I’m interested in cutting their heads off This is a war zone This is my life Is this alright now? Is this the way? Before the sun came out we had it all under control, So I remember us And this feeling hides inside my bones I tried everything but nothing works So I am beneath you now Was my chalice lost somehow? All of my demons await Sing for the restless, sing for a common cause We can’t accept this Sing for the fallen This is a war zone This is my life Is this alright now? Is this the way? Before the sun came out we had it all under control, So I remember us Life is just a war zone Fight! We need more! And this feeling hides inside my bones I tried everything but nothing works So I am beneath you now Was my chalice lost somehow? All of my demons await Before the sun came out we had it all under control, So I remember us

Velvet 04:56
Sing for the unloved one Sing for the unkind With my eyes wide open I can see their light Sing for the unloved ones Sing for the unkind Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Sleeping through the hollow ending Hold a glimpse of neverending fear I told you is forgiven Hold me now and save me once again I see you Mother, sinner, father I see you Colours outside my world come as velvet Sorrows inside my world come as madness Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Fear the storm inside, fear the storm within Colours outside my world come as velvet Sorrows inside my world come as madness Colours outside my world come as velvet Sorrows inside my world come as madness

Silence, shame and guilt I might lose control Silently we plan the end of their world Nothing’s holding me back Oh no! Leaders are speaking black rivers Same old song again Over and over again Makes me feel so... Makes me feel so alive! Smiles and lies they feed us Hate in their eyes Makes us want to rise They squished you like a bug, under their feet, so easily Don’t be shy, don’t be afraid Just go and grab a knife Maybe join the killing floor! Leaders are speaking black rivers

Retrieve the heart that whispers in your ear My crescent lights flow Would you help me? Repetition is key Resolution? We’ll see... No direction for me Just a silly dream Eyes kept wide Arms up high And the fog is lifted The cunning man has come But you will say “This time I won’t trust you” And I will say Cursed eyes gaze into my soul A restless man on a restless horse I wish I could see the signs again The ranger is moving on The long way home A sphere of seas Is shrinking slowly And I disappear Bones still crack As I swim down I owe myself a starfish crown Broken legs and broken arms Tonight we dance among the stars Eyes kept wide Arms up high And the fog is lifted

Ten days away, the visions came to play Forever around Only Monday she prayed for better days No longer with us Father! What a fucking mess! What have I done?! Regardless, nothing makes any sense Someday questions So clean I can never forget it This boring life… Someone, help me! So clean I can never forget it This boring life… And it’s been years now She’s still above ground Father! What a fucking mess! What have I done?! Regardless, nothing makes any sense Someday questions So clean I can never forget it This boring life… Someone, help me! So clean I can never forget it This boring life… Help is here, I’ll follow you Help is here for you Well I am hopeless, I am a mess And it’s been years now She’s still above ground Father! What a fucking mess! What have I done?! Regardless, nothing makes any sense

Month's End 04:19
The question is: what? We burned our hearts The answer is: wind Our flight was for God Kings and mortal men Rise and live again So we can fight as brothers! Fly high, dismantle their engines Fly high and smite them from the sky I try to redefine my motions While I burn them to the ground The hour is now For crosses to grow Let’s burn them all down Let’s put on a show! Kings and mortal men Rise and live again So we can fight as brothers! I’ve seen the ending, my heart still weeps I keep pretending about how I feel I am the one keeping you up I am the wind, I am the sun Speak to me now, speak from your heart I am the wind, I am the earth I am the one keeping you up I am the wind, I am the sun Speak to me now, speak from your heart I am the wind, I am the sun In December you sent a letter You wrote the words that crushed my heart In December you sent a letter You wrote the words that crushed my heart In December you sent a letter You wrote the words that crushed my heart Fly high, dismantle their engines Fly high and smite them from the sky I try to redefine my motions While I burn them to the ground I am the one keeping you up I am the wind, I am the sun Speak to me now, speak from your heart I am the wind, I am the sun

Descent 06:47
Here in this void Walk in hell Marching for war Almost... I’m almost there, gasping for air When will this be over? Wait for the rest Head to the West Hot as the sun Descent has begun Body aches Taint us all I can’t wait anymore All this is clear, they came back Circling near Darkness, searing flesh, laying waste Wait for the rest Head to the West Hot as the sun Dissent has begun Body aches Taint us all I can’t wait anymore Anymore Just imagine there’s no hope Oh I think I had enough And I know I filled my cup Just imagine, just imagine, just imagine Just you! Smoke and ashes fill the sky Standing still, I wonder why Am I still alive? Standing still, I wonder why Am I still alive? Here in this void, gasping for air I’m almost there, I’m reaching hell Here in this void, gasping for air I’m almost there, I’m reaching hell

The king sleeps as we’re marching for war Tonight brings dishonour I believed my hands were clean as I stepped into the heat Ready for the slaughter We are hopeless men Hiding underwater might be our best chance Come to me brother, you will understand The circle is here, there is nothing to fear Take my hand, I will show you the end Either way, we are done with sorrow Oh, I know our hope is lost, but I feel fine Only just a few of us remain still in the game Ready for the slaughter We are hopeless men Hiding underwater might be our best chance Come to me brother, you will understand The circle is here, there is nothing to fear Take my hand, I will show you the end Ready for the slaughter We are hopeless men Hiding underwater might be our best chance Come to me brother, you will understand My beating heart, I’ve no regrets We live to die Tomorrow ends Just go on ahead, because the pain is dead And it holds me here Just go on ahead, because the pain is there And it haunts me Just go on ahead, because the pain is dead And it holds me here Just go on ahead, because the pain is there And it haunts me Just go on ahead, because the pain is dead And it holds me here Just go on ahead.

about

GRANDEUR opens up a whole new spectrum of musical pathways and offers a more mature sound 7 years after the release of the previous White Walls full-length effort “Escape Artist”. Inspired by the state of the world, the title is not only a beautiful word, but also reveals some of the underlying themes in the songs. Paying attention to all details the band got the talented Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Animals as Leaders) to take care of mixing and mastering. Artist Radu Damian was in charge of the deeply complex artwork, making sure it fits with the new sound.
