though i rest my soul a shifting is afoot urging towards an end a coercive desire in mind steady relapse tilt and breach let our heads be bared the center will always hold let ire not govern your hand a trembling soul is flawed succumbed to deceit erroneous belief a blank page shall receive my truth containing the tyrant within nothing obstructs my path still the stormy sea clear so i may pass failure treason remission truce
Emerging 01:09
I Belong 06:45
all has been taken, all was lost a withered site and a place of ghosts clinging to an heir, entrench the loss i know the name and i belong i trail the footsteps of those before take me to the source and show a drum, a stick and a song to sing i will find ‘cause i belong memories fading, old ways pass declining evil by your side sore temptation takes a toll i falter not ‘cause i belong the averted walk alone staring off into the void i’m moving forward turning back i won’t get lost ‘cause i belong i belong...
the brightness i came to see the end does matter so does the path i waited I climbed high i left, i found i felt my eyes i got unveiled bitter crust fell away may the tears i cry today make grow the flowers of tomorrow my wings the southern grave i waited and i found the southern grave my wings i found
Voice Within 08:02
your voice within travelled far today falling back on a wave we don’t rise when you fall pop the question in blazing light who are you this time? in the name of the damned i will turn back and run your voice burns in my hands words start to sound like awful noise some heroes are we to pass outside these gates
Rising 00:47
Towering 09:22
Hydra 05:25
war zone – take that shale out of the sea dragged down – I collide with that beast in me do I hold the sword? am I covering my light? war zone – oh no, my air is feeding the sea nauseous grin – bring back a wildflowerfield to me this collision will turn on the light for me! i couldn’t wait to welcome you you know i gently light the path i honor your trust in me you know you belong to me the shale, my call the fire, my hands the sword, my heart your pathetics are now faced by me shale into the sea collided with the beast in me wildflowerfield this collision turned on the light for me! honor me – shine for me belong to me – beast in me i welcome you – i am facing you come to the sea – collide with me
Dawn 09:28
drown, final?, fate? sorrow? refracted? no! becoming drown, final?, fate? sorrow – no! shift, lever dawn
Ascending 01:13
Death Dying 06:41
behind the mirror of times the writing on the wall role play and rebellion pictures from the corner of your eyes got violence in view and you are the true star of the screen do not come if you’re planning to leave we will wait and wait to see


Existence fosters the urge for room and sonic space, perpetual and sweat bearing devotion. It draws from cumulated forces and visionariness. Eyes fixed on the scenery it stands beside the ongoing commotion. Therein lies the necessity to deliver oneself to the frail, to detect and embrace one’s own fragility. Never accustomed to dwell in shelter for too long. This is where the fourth studio-album «Towering» mountainously plunges down towards the spectator. A stubborn and imposing body of songs is rigged up, taking its stance clear and unapologetic. A colossus, preconceived and without debate. Unhold, bearing the malice spirit in its name, is in motion and displays itself in most flattering twilight, revealing a female side reformed in a new constitution. Sound and course remain unaltered, forging ahead. Taking roots was never intended. Aware of perishability, from the depths Unhold gather and unleash a new storm. Pushing through calm waters they’ll let the high tides rise even higher.

Hope, anger and agony generate a space and a sonic architecture which bears witness to a conscious existence and vigorous force. ... more
