Grimmrobe Idle Hands is a nostalgic throwback to gothic metal of old, and is as sincere in its mission as it is excellent.

About as epic as slaying dragons on a massive battlefield. Favorite track: Jackie.

love the "Oh!" shouts that they seem to use pretty often throughout the songs Favorite track: Jackie.

sir1988 this album is fantastic. imagine Judas priest, the cult, type o negative and danzig having an orgy while iron maiden listens from the next room over. that's what this album sounds like, in the best possible way. favorite track? fucking all of them.

Track Name: Give Me To The Night
Such a life without the light, do you fear to lose your sight?
Well it doesn’t bother me, cause you don’t see what I see
There’s a devil in my mind and the mysteries of time revealed
In the dark I’m running free, give to me your energy

Oh, give me to the night, give me to the ages, take me away
Give me to the night, give me to the ages, the darkness is calling

I don’t think of all the things that I will never be
I don’t think of all the places that I will never see
And I won’t get on my knees, for all the people I can’t please
But it seems to be so easy for you, so do it by yourself!

Oh, give me to the night, give me to the ages, take me away
Give me to the night, give me to the ages, the darkness is calling my name
…again and again and again!
Track Name: Dragon, Why Do You Cry?
I searched for you, for a thousand years
in my heart, I find you here
Look at me, with your ancient eyes
Dragon, why do you cry?

I know you’re getting older, you feel/fell behind but you’re forgetting
The world is make-believe, you’re still alive, you must keep dreaming

I dream of you, I dream of dragons
I’ll make you real

I’ve cried these tears, for a thousand years
And no one cares, no one hears me
If you were me, you’d understand
Young man, I am not real

I know my time is over, the fantasy has all but faded
The world is moving on and they won’t miss a lonely dragon

I don’t believe, believe in dragons
I don’t believe

No one cried on that fateful day
No holidays or grand parades
And why he came, it’s hard to say
…but no one cared as he flew away

I dream of you I dream of dragons
I dream of you, I still believe
I still believe, believe in dragons
I’m flying free
Track Name: A Single Solemn Rose
Give me some time I told you
means nothing to me now
I don’t know why I thought you
would ever come around

Out beyond the tracks
A moments hesitation
How could I not see
I was only 17!

Can we cut the back and forth, it doesn’t matter anymore
A gift for what its worth, alone, a single solemn rose
Before you go, know I don’t love you anymore
Be careful what you wish for

When I give you a chance you use it
Yeah, you make things clear
You beat it and abuse it
I can tell that you don’t care

Desperate with fear
Gripping tight to fantasy
I hate it when you’re here
Sitting next to me

Can we cut the back and forth, it doesn’t matter anymore
A gift for what its worth, alone, a single solemn rose
Before you go, know I don’t love you anymore
Be careful what you wish for, just like me!

Just a waste of time
And I think you knew
But I’ll be fine
Just like you
