Your muddy banks to walk And moss-covered stone Will you sing me your song? Are you hiding it from me? Will you keep so secretive? And so, there must be a reason In the evening Your sad fountains weep Young lady don't lie to me Last night I was lost A grey fog of grey thought Tried to swallow me whole When I meet you I'll have cast a thousand stones I'll be bones upon bones I'll be glowing like a ghost
2.
Unwinding roads yield winding paths Beware the deadly dragon's breath A dark harp of sorrows I'll bare O dark globe I roam When love’s in bud A virgin light The moon it glows The sun it shines No time to fear the hourglass Put out the flame or make it last The fog rolls in All fades to white All things are lost in endless night A falling feeling fills me whole O wings of love return once more To feel the winds that weed the grass And see the mists as they come to pass I love to see the flowers amass My love to reap, to sow

Shadowland 02:32
Just say the word My loving bird I'll be in flight To see you tonight I had a fall In a shadow land In the dragon's lair In the coal black sand I had a walk Where the trees are bare Black winter snares Await me there Cast your line and reel Let your love shine down (((O))) how I've longed For the promised land Where the grass is green And the children dance

Eagle Unseen 02:30
Darkness has fallen Thick is the fog Join howl with the wild white wolves Winter has come I hear a war knocking at the door Tales of the eagle unseen I smell the fear welling in our souls Winter has come In the Dark Night of Saint John There's nowhere to run Winter has come Darkness has fallen
5.
In the Shade 03:19
Softly she speaks in waves Her words are snakes To worm their way in Awfully plain to see She is for you, she is for me A lovely place to be In the shade No one can see Tongues of lily white Don't shield your eyes A mouth of mire to taste your sides Lonely in the grass I'm free at last Walk with me again Through the woods of no regret It's a lovely place to be In the shade No one can see
6.
Indian summer with Mary J Sing for the colors and for a change No one can see me from where I am It's city living that's killing them Indian summer A little longer Hello the rain cloud above my head You cannot touch me A silver meadow I wander in A golden forest in autumn's peak Indian summer A little longer Spend the night with me
7.
Morning Star 02:31
Western wind wash over me again As it's written in the stars A light shall pierce the dark To color me with calm confidence To bring bread and fruit and gold I hunger for it all Through mists and rain my chalice awaits The earth does shake with the coming of the end Fear not her icy touch, Kind mother loves her sons. The earth does shake with the coming of the end As it's written in the stars A light shall pierce the dark Take her hand again Through mists and rain my chalice awaits Western wind wash over me again
8.
Mad John 02:10
Big hairy-armed monster Whiskey on the brain Chasing all the girls away When mad John comes from the wood Mad johns up to no good Madman John, he's on the prowl again His mean red eyes will cut right through your skin When mad John comes from the wood Mad John's up to no good He'll blow your houses down He'll terrify your town He'll stamp your fire out When Mad John comes from the wood Mad John's up to no good
9.
Illuminate 02:40
O mighty wind In loving wise Sing sylphid sing your song of light O great and mighty king, whisperer of secret things Sing sylphid sing to the Salamander King Eternal queen In loving wise O how the days have passed me by Sing sylphid sing to the salamander king May the dying embers be kindled Once more and forevermore
10.
O cold, dark age To my dismay Under shadow rule O wicked cave What can a poor boy do? Pray for deluge What can a poor boy do? Sing the doomsday blues I can see you there In the setting sun In the ashes and the flames in the locust swarm And in the boiling ocean's deep I hear a voice of reckoning The end is nigh, the future bleak Our tired race could use some sleep Oh, cold, dark age To my dismay Under shadow rule Oh, wicked cave O police state Just a glowing ember, a gust of wind is all I seek A flame to be to light your wick Illuminate the crawling spaces
11.
Daylight 03:14
Want To feel Alive Dizzy in the green grass For the days For the nights I've laid waste Books for the brain Ghosts to their graves Pour their souls out into nothing Look see the rain It's going away The sunlight is coming out today We'll dance dance dance Dance around the green man The gravestones are talking to me

about

It comes from dimensions unknown. Wilderness of Love, the smoke-colored debut album by mystical prophets Shadow Band, sounds more conjured than recorded. When the sprawling collective decided it was time to document their dark craft, rather than choosing to work in a traditional recording studio, they dove headlong into their time honored method of capturing late night jams on mouldering home-recording devices. Oblivious to life outside, the band laid down sounds that could only happen in these contained moments of silent enlightenment.

The album that resulted is indeed a product of the wild. The eleven songs here travel on a misty journey through both lantern-lit psyche-folk dirges and depraved deathknell blues, wobbling in the balance of paranoia and universal understanding. The homespun production mirrors the low-lit environment in which the album was made, with strange stringed instruments, theremin vibrations and buried percussion all washing by as a singular, alien texture. Songs melt with the sound of distant birds and pagan pan flutes only to rise up in swells of unholy synth. Mellow but godless, the Shadow Band creates their own reality, reflecting on the dying embers of haunted dreams but moving ever forward through the dusk.

about

Shadow Band Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Riding in on a cloud of smoke, psychedelic travelers Shadow Band sound more like a foggy dream of fantastical lands than any easily identifiable set of musical choices. Their patient but powerful sounds set in motion a series of refracting echoes, conjuring up images of medieval battles, blissed-out trips and the haze of a sleep-deprived commune of heads in a state of perpetual vibing. ... more
