Lemon This is a gem of an ep. I'm really looking forward to the full length. Favorite track: I Feel Nothing.

Music the Lifeblood Sassy little ditties from some of the fellas that are/were in Spellcaster, ala: the more emotive side of the NWOBHM and some reverby first wave of Goth stuff. Moody but not TOO moody. Boner jams fo shizzle.

dale jacobson jr. I wasn't huge on SpellCaster last album, really enjoyed their soph&then debut on Heavy Artillery(2011).
Ok...well none of that applies here at all or is relevant to this review! 💥😛
With a few members of WarpFire&Spellcaster rounding out this Superb.Promising outfit Idle Hands from Portland are on to something that meshes what my Girlfriend listened to in High School in 87' (Depeche Mode, Modern English,The Cure)& mixed it with my youth of elitism of NWOBHM coolness.

This is refreshing. the all out comradery .. allows these 5 tracks to be left on over n over until you file them into your heavy metal mind.

5🌟 Favorite track: Can You Hear The Rain.

Track Name: Blade And The Will
Wandering in darkness I can’t help but feel I’m running out of time and I don’t want to fail again. Seems to me that I’m the last man standing here, but I’m still alone, and there is no direction for me. My idle hands hold on, can’t hold on, no. Give me your blessing ancient fire, give me the courage lift me higher, give me the strength that I desire, give me the knife. Looking at the faceless aging faces all the dreams that dreamed to be, so suddenly familiar. Running out of options I have no one and there’s no need to explain, your foolish optimism to me. My idle hands hold on, can’t hold on, no. Give me your blessing ancient fire, give me the courage lift me higher, give me the strength that I desire, give me the power.
Track Name: By Way Of Kingdom
A man is hunting me, this figure stalking me in starlight. I’m running out of time. The darkness hides my trail, he knows not by which way I travel. The golden path of my desire. By way of kingdom, by way of force, by way of empire, by way of time, the strong survive. ...and when the morning comes, I see the morning star above me. A symbol of my destiny. To meet my enemy, to know you don’t think the way that I do, that you will die and I survive.
Track Name: Can You Hear The Rain
Remember years ago when I asked you? I didn’t mean to make you cry. You were hesitant to answer, I remember in the night. Can you hear the rain upon my window? Sunny days the way it used to be. All the years are passing on without you. All the years are passing right by me. You were standing there on our wedding day. I still see you when I dream. Could you harbor me in paradise? Could you carry me into a better life? You would die. Can you hear the rain upon my window? Sunny days the way it used to be. All the years are passing on without you. All the years are passing right by me. Fly away.
Track Name: Time Crushes All
Moral man, a soldier of virtue. Master of my life, a warrior of righteous thought everything would turn out like I wanted, how could I fall victim to this sickening cancer? Forces advancing but time crushes all. You’re losing the battle. Death, cold. Give me the time! Death has the final say in all that we do. Autumn leaves, the summer is dying. Sun upon your face, the last time I would see you. What I would trade to remain for a moment. Ripped away from mortal ties, thrust into eternity.
Track Name: I Feel Nothing
I feel the wind, the wind touches my face, once again. I feel the fire, the fire is dying, once again. I see the earth changing, the world is amazing, but just not for me. I see the stars shining far away, I hide my face. ...and if this is real, then why don’t I feel anything? I know this is real, so why don’t I feel anything?
