kadees „Skyline“ beeindruckt mit erstklassig angelegten Kompositionen, die mit wunderbar gefühlvollen, luftig leichten Melodien glänzen. Mit hoher Spielkultur, großer Präzision und geradezu unglaublichem Tempo überrollen die Songs den Prog-Fan und der positive Eindruck des letzten Tracks ist noch nicht verklungen, da wird bereits die nächste geballte Ladung Melodiebögen aufgefahren.
Das Album macht einen Riesenspaß und unterhält ausgesprochen intensiv durch kreative Rhythmuswechsel. Favorite track: The silence of our wake.

Tim Holmes The nearest thing I've heard to ELP for a long time. Great way to get over the loss of an idol. Favorite track: Overture.
Andreas Blohm

Andreas Blohm A very entertaining record, great musicianship combined with wonderful melodies, quoting progressive rock classics while exploring new grounds. An absolute must have for anyone who loves Genesis, Tull, King Crimson & Co.
FlyingWalrus

FlyingWalrus Fantastic! Especially the first five songs are a straight 'A+'. While those guys clearly follow well known progressive rock footsteps, they sometimes bring along shoes that seem even bigger than the original! It doesn't get much better! Favorite track: The silence of our wake.

Spicy Wolf What an incredible record! This sounds like what would happen if you cooked Transatlantic with a healthy portion of Haken and some Hiromi Uehara just for fun. Barock Project use classical and jazz vocabulary in equal measure to great effect, and the result is a real prog rock gem! Favorite track: Spinning away.

Martin Smith Another very fine example of progressive rock. Fantastic songs, musicianship and the flac files sound awesome. Another excellent addition to my music library. Martin Favorite track: The silence of our wake.

Track Name: Gold
(Author: L.Zabbini - Lyrics: A.De Sarno)

Take my load
Pretend it’s just a game
Must be worth a try
Guess I’ll board my plane
All the people look for a new way
I can’t take Anymore
Anymore
Not today

Rest your body and dry those lonely tired eyes
You know how I share your problems all the time
I try so hard to warm you when you’re cold inside
For you I’d do anything
Yes fall by your side
This, my plate still empty
And my broken heart’s a wire
While my sea is tossing
But my table’s bare.
See me on the floor
But divert your tired mind
Don’t build a wall.

Open the windows wide until you say
It must be love that blows these clouds away
We’ll take the darkest skies and paint them gold
You’ll never fly
Until you leave the ground

There’s something in between
Come down look me in the eyes
You must return on down
You’ll remember your own roots
My wings are failing
And I feel oh so weak
Sometimes I fall so slowly and
This can never be
When light comes on round
And this new day will warm my face and I
Recall all the sorrow I have known
I know this strange feeling
And my life is soon blown away.

Open up the windows wide until you say
It must be love that blows these clouds away
We’ll take the darkest skies and paint them gold
You’ll never fly
Until you look away

When the evening comes
And daytime turns away
I could try and warm your bones
What do you say?
It will relieve me of my darkest thoughts today
Nothing will feed the rot in my brain
When the dragging of my feet gets in the way
I feel fine
When the doubt in the back of my mind won’t go away
I feel so fine

But in between all these myriad lows and highs
The end of the story will still arrive one day
We just need to grow and leave the dark lit past behind
The worst thing that could happen
If this push should come to shove
We’ll fall alone

And in the sky above us there’s no sign of truth
It might just be we’ll one day fail together
Well…
We’ll still paint the mountains and the deepest golden seas
All my instincts leave me as I gather up my wits or so it seems.
I guess it all boils down to faith
Must be my sight is failing me once more
Must be why my feeling stays the same
Must be why mostly I stay sane
Waiting for
Waiting for
A new way
Track Name: Skyline (feat.Vittorio De Scalzi)
SKYLINE (Music L.Zabbini - Lyrics: A.De Sarno)

So welcome back you fools
To the story of a drowning
It’s far too late
To turn around
It’s time to be alone
I’ll never find a way
To survive this fateful day
When you’ve run out of luck
And prove to others what you know

Brace yourself
Keep an eye on the sea for me
Every wave could well be a sign
Hide

When the sun falls
Always ready to hide your face
Just a nod to the one who’ll save the day
Hide.
Will you never see the back of this raging sea
Hear the song of the universal mind
Right
Just take care then
You ride the crest of that tidal wave
So very little time
To find your way
Lie

I’m just a sailor so keep in mind
I can’t be much braver I’m flying blind
It must be my saviour my peace of mind
Skyline

And when you’re drowning
Out of your depth in deepest seas
Moving forwards or downwards I can’t see
Dive
You’ll start to regret
Every single day of your life
Skies wide open and you’ve run out of time.

It must be a secret so hard to find
It must be a secret so hard to find
It must be my saviour so hard to find
Skyline

Heaven waits
But it’s not for me to know today
Contemplating these tears
You still can’t see the skyline

You’ll never walk straight down those streets again
I’ll never know if you did find a way
Something happened on that day
Now you’re stalling for the sickly sight now
I’ll be falling so far away
Now you’ve fallen for my false lightning
Now your call is so far away

You’ll never make those same mistakes again
I’ll never know if you felt the shame
Long before I almost died that day
I just thought you would walk away
You should pay for your sordid crimes one day
I still pray I will find a way

My credit’s expired
It was payday today
It’s so great to be so far away
My fortunes been squandered
Sad day today
You will burn with envy
I’m miles away
Run far!
My mind is on fire
The scene of the crime
The home of eternal boredom and rain
Come cut the wire
It’s freedom today
You sense the doorway
I’m miles away
Oh can’t believe it’s true!
My luck has expired
My last day today
I’m miles away
Oh I love the view!
Track Name: Roadkill
Preying on the stray
In this silent summer night
Means my time has really come at last
We might leave so soon
We make the river dark
We could just wade in its shallow waters
The light falls on this simple sacrifice
Throwing up the weasels lose their names

Laying out the shame
In this midsummer’s night
Seems so strange to really be so still
We might sleep under the moon
We cast our shadows deep
This life could be so ripe
Could be so right

And the light falls down on this dreary sacrifice
Taking all we’ve saved
Sensing you the rodents dart away

Can’t you see the forest tonight .

So
You say you love me
Please adore me and offer up your soul
You
You know you want me
I’ll just grope where I want and then rip out your soul.

When your fear has drowned out the violence in your home
And you’ve taken all the gods can throw your way
When you’re crawling in the rain and the tears won’t wash away
A roadkill but not in my name.

So
You say you love me
Please adore me and offer up your soul
You
You know you want me
I’ll just grope where I want and then rip out your soul

With my insides where you can see now
Where my guts spell out my story

All I desire is now fleeing
Light the fires I’m surely leaving

See me dancing in the starry skies
With the shiny moon
I’ll be dancing in the waves you’ll find me
I’ll be dancing in the seasons
You’ll find me please don’t mourn
I’ll be dancing in the rain
You’ll find me

I stand on your road to glory
For the first time please feel something
You might try and say you’re sorry
I don’t know if that will do.
Track Name: The silence of our wake
They walk down the streets again
So close they can hear our pain
Beyond the clouds
That empty place
One fine frozen face
Half alive
I can’t explain
Invasion seems over now
Where the few are on the run
Then they strikes again

They crawl down their slides again
But now I can’t feel the rain
Behind the sun
That perfect face
One fine summer’s day
Still alive
I don’t know why
Fighting’s over now
Still a few are on the run
Then they strikes again
Wish I knew where I could hide
I could try to disappear in the crispest night
Summoned back again

They race down the streets again
And now I can hear their names
They had come
In ancient times
One fine summer’s day
It’s all true
I can’t explain
Invasion is over now
Where the few are on the run
Here they come again
Wish I knew where I could hide
I could try to disappear in the deadly night
Wish I knew where I could hide
I could try to disappear in the alien night
Summoned back again

In the final days
In the silence of our wake
When the time will come to face towards the sun
At the shiny gates
All the flowers ain’t worth dying for
Preying to a throne on top of bones


When you’ll see
When the time will come to face
We’re only mortal men
In the silence of our wake
And you will leave
The world and all we know
Dimly ashes burn
And the sea evaporates

You will wave your magic wand
With tragic grace
The world will say goodbye in horrific flames
You will wave your magic wand
With tragic grace
The Earth will only be an empty space

One day you’ll see
When the time will come to face
This world will disappear
In the silence of our wake
And will you leave
The world that we all know
Faintest fire glows
And we evaporate

You will wave your magic wand
With tragic grace
The world will say goodbye in horrific flames
You will wave your magic wand
With tragic grace
The Earth will only be an empty space

I believed in you
No mercy and forgotten seeds
I would believe in you
Must be some sort of soul in you
Must we die
Must we fry
Misty eyed
No tears to cry
Track Name: The sound of dreams
Guess I’m just down
And still feeling sad
Somebody new will call
Your battered soul to flight
One night for eternity
Will never cease
Something wrong is only as small as the tallest fear

And it’s mine to waste
And those names will never go away
And the sounds will never go away

And I’m feeling wide awake
It seems to you and they decide not to stay
The sound of dreams awakens you while eyes will find some peace
So it seems

If the sound of dreams still frightens you
Won’t mean that I’m not there
Light my way
As you turn around my life won’t feel a waste of time so please
Say it’s day
Track Name: Spinning away
I want more ,I want new
Flavours today
I have such a tiny mind
Spinning away
I have always seemed to be
Just out of view
Crawl for you I could hide
For no reason

I want in I want out
Climb up your crack
With my legs on you now
There’ll still be a way
I will quickly speak my mind
And in my own way
Running won’t save you now
Spinning away

Waiting for the sun
Weavers like me
It’s so tough to keep us away
I can remember
You’re just the same
I’ll tell you the truth one day
Boredom’s to blame

Fall before
Keep the score
My feelers today
Money won’t save you now
Stay out of my way
Say no more
Say no more
Dying to stay
I will hide in your holes
Buried away
Spin my web
Spin it well
My body won’t stretch
Admit it now
All your pain
Is my release yeah
What do you
Call it now
A reason to die?
Even though I crawl around
I’m hairy and gray
Waiting for the sun
Weavers like me
It’s so tough to keep us away
I can remember
You’re just the same
I’ll tell you the truth one day
Boredom’s to blame
Praying for
Someone so
High up and keen
I so dearly want some shadow today
I can squash you all
Under my thumb
I’m even sure
So deep down
Nobody cares
No , no
You won’t realise
I so want to see the next day
I can’t believe
You’d die from fright
Waiting for dark
I’ll live in your grave
Every night I roam from door to door
Stormy skies and rainy days
I’m waiting for the biggest game
Move around your face
For me it’s such a busy day
You’ll never realise
Waiting for your eyes to close
I wait today
Track Name: Tired
It used to be so fine, so regally divine
And yes no one could see how easily you’d shine
We used to be So keen So eager every day
You used to say There was No need for anything

My tired bones
Will take no more
I ache I’m sore
I’m tired oh
This tyrant’s name
We’ll try no more
We’re lost at sea
Lost the score So torn
We’ll try to turn away
So we’ll - believe
One time - can save - our souls
We’ll let it go
You have been
A long while
Dying to leave them
And you , Yes you
Have seen all that you’ve seen
And I Believe
I’ve run as far as I want now
When now it seems to be I will live all my days
In time There will be light
Hiding here in deepest night.

We used to laugh Out loud
So easily that day
In times Long gone we Could be
So easily divine
We tried them all
And now there’s no one left to blame
Wish I was wrong
But there’s still no one left to blame

My tired bones
Will take no more
I ache I’m sore
I’m tired oh
This tyrant’s name
We’ll try no more
We’re lost at sea
Lost the score So torn
We’ll try to turn away
So we’ll believe
One time can save our souls
We’ll let it go.

You have been
A long while
Dying to leave them
And you , Yes you
Have seen all that you’ve seen
And I Believe
I’ve run as far as I want now
When now it seems to be I will live all my days
In time There will be light
Hiding here in deepest night.

We tried them all
And now there’s no one left to blame
Wish I was wrong
But there’s still no one left to blame

Longest season or the shortest beat
Hear me I am the lord of flies
On empty seas
I feel the darkest waves
In the streets
I feel the strongest waves
Somebody try to tell I’m to blame
Track Name: A winter's night
A WINTER’s NIGHT (testo e musica : L.Zabbini)

Rain falls
It’s soon too dark outside for me to see you
In the sky or inside me
So dry
You never seem to hang on long enough
I’ve got faith
Over hills and dales
The thought of you remains
On This Winter Night
Only fools won’t see
You’re on your own all day
You’re always on your own
I can’t talk to the wind
So you’ve sealed your fate
There’s no time for us to wait
Sun rise
A time will come in which we shun the daylight
Is this what it’s like to die for you
Seems right
Feel no strings attach me to the daytime
But wait
Over seas and lakes
The thought of you remains
This cold winter night
Only you won’t see
I’m on my own all day
You’re always on your own
growing old inside
So you’ve sealed my fate
There’s no time to wait
day by day
Will we turn to dust
The thought of this remains
On this winter’s night
Will our time run out
The thought of you remains
Will you believe in promises made
I can’t talk to the wind
A chill runs down my spine
Blown away by the wind.
Track Name: The longest sigh
THE LONGEST SIGH
(music: L.Zabbini lyrics: Antonio De Sarno)

My days
Are feeling all the same
My nights
All withered and grown dry
Why can’t we be together in our flight
Grounded though my soul won’t be denied
And one day we’ll be together
And no one needs to know we lived this way

Tonight
I can see the distant lights
I’m sure
Things won’t be the same
Though we’ll be surrounded by the free
Darkest thoughts inside won’t stay with me
And there will be an open sea
And I can’t see a way to say goodbye
Night birds fly
They’ll make their way along the shore
And they will seal the golden beam
As treetops flee
Around the tide
Oh

Hey
I’m feeling very strange
Flight
Is there no end to my flight
I know we’ll need the early morning light
Grounded yes the floor won’t be denied
And one day we’ll be together
Only to fall another day

From this height
My wings will lead us oh so high
And every time the winds believe
Oh
We just release the longest sigh
The longest sigh

From this height
Don’t give up your flight
And do me please
Let me breathe
I can breathe in your eyes
Don’t give up the surprise
We’ll fly free
There’ll be no need for grief for me
We’ll soar all night
Shoot the breeze
I’ll be free
I’ll never be a dusty souvenir

So tall
In spite of weight and gravity
Always searching for breeze
Acknowledging the change
Oh
We dream
I feel we don’t live on our knees
Your world of misery
I’ll be alone no more
No more
