Nicholas The groove in this song is undeniable. This song has a sexy ass vibe that trances, and trumps all over my brain. Fucking love it. Favorite track: Born a Lion (Homeless).

Sonny92 A fantastic mature album of tight stoner / space rock, that is more focussed in it's execution than most examples of the genre. A nice variety in the songs, sometimes sounding like Killing Joke (as on Universal Bloodlines) at others, sounding more like a contemporary prog band such as Porcupine Tree. Impressive songwriting and flawless execution result in one of the best albums of the year. Favorite track: Curtains of Death.

VORTEX SUN One soul - one heart One love - apart. One world - one mind One past - behind. One hope - one will one dream - fulfill. One war - one pain we flee - again. One trip - one fear one loss - my dear. One will - one cry my hope - good bye. - Fear - crawling nothingness Tears – fall on desert sands. Sun – drags me out of here. Strength – start to fight against. Rising ... rising ... rising ... rising! Rage – urging force inside Raise – freedom now untied Move – home is out of reach Come – time to end our cries. Rising ... rising ... rising ... rising! Where is the harbouring place? Where are the ruins we faced? New strong convictions we won. Enter the reign – Vortex Sun!

Universal Bloodlines My dear .... what happened to us when the madness began? How could we ever move so far apart? From you, .... my brother? Say why .... Did You follow those inhuman lies? Can't you see - how you are poisoning our bloodline? Once your brother - once your love Once below you - now above Same old bloodline - same old god: but you are dead now - and I am not - I am not! I see .... You are no longer standing close by my side. when the commandment came you had to divide our bloodline, oh brother? I must see ... We lost your soul, you changed sides yes - your divinity will certainly shine: in destruction - at your end!

Born a lion (Homeless) Born a lion Beloved son of a desert chief Raised a leader Strong boy back in better days Born a lion Love and hope of his family Father's lion Young, wild and a whole lot of dreams Born a lion Little hands and a healing touch Oh a good heart Playing games in the desert sand Cried a sister Sound of war brought by southern winds Born a lion God's gun and the terror began Run! End of former life Shattered and destroyed Western world arrival End up on skid row Now the lion is dead But the memory is alive And the question remains Without any reply If it wouldn't have happened then what could have been?

The Lure (Come with us) Buddy can't you see That your life means agony (come with us) I'm the ferryman Lead you to the Promised Land (come with us) We take you to the shore Where milk and honey flow (come with us) Pay us in advance don't you miss your final chance (come with us) Say you got no money Leave it to your wife (come with us) Sell your house and family buy a better life (come with us) Misery, my business Moralizing useless! (come with us) I don't care for your arrival nor for your survival (come with us) Forget about the past You don't wanna be the last (come with us) Just a little step Put your money in my hand (come with us) You don't wanna float Better go and get the boat (come with us) Buy a better life Leave the agony behind (come with us)

Run to the plains Calling for the run to the plains Calling for the break of my chains Calling for the run to the plains Waiting for the throb in my veins Calling up the will to survive calling up the patterns of life Calling up the will to survive Waiting for my fear to arrive Gathering the strength for the hunt Gather for the march to the front Calling up the run to the plains Hunting for the hunted in chains calling for the run to the plains Calling for the break of my chains calling for the run to the plains Waiting for the time to escape .. Go! Run! Leave the Hole! My life is shattered! Go! Run! Eat my soul! I see you fall! Go! Run! Leave the Hole! My life is shattered! I see you fall!

Curtains of death In this common time souls are joining forces. No we won't go down but there is no way out. They have taken all, nothing left to live on. Seize the final chance. Better off to die. We won't fight against overwhelming rulers. Forge your destiny Salvation's over there. They will chase to death. Words will not be spoken. Realize at last: Blunt humanity As we march towards the distant horizon Soon approaching the end of our world In the distance feel faith and hope rising Reaching out for the curtains of light Marching on with the fear of the hunted Feel the breath of the beasts on our neck Then we're touching the rim of a New World Realizing the end of our fright Through the walls through the curtains - of death Through the walls Through the night through the caverns - of wrath Through the walls through the traces through the curtains - of death Through the night through anxiety through the caverns - of wrath

Melek's lament (Yazidi tears) See these lights? Fires burning on the hillside Northern tribes On the road to Nineveh Bent and abandoned - weary and hopeless Once again On the run to leave the heartland Forgotten reign Oh my people fell from grace Cry for my children - mourn for their souls Weep Remorse. Cry for my children Weep Grace. Healing and blessing Yazata So run my children Don't swallow your cries I stare into those Black trauma-eyes Yazata Cold and starvation In shattered walls Mount Sinjar trembles Our temple falls Mass emigration Explosive vests Boys suicidal Girls Jump to death

Walking shades While the guarding night cools my troubled mind, we follow eden's call on our steady walk. ...god is far from here ... Men behind the lines keeping: killing times. They regard our lives: threatening parasites. ...god is far from here ... ...god is far from here ... A walk between the worlds, a growing universe. Hate and hollow faith hunt the walking shades. ...god is far from here ... Loss of our past and walking in hope - fielded and thrown out again
9.
Ritual of inner Strength Float - on the ocean Drift - upon a dream Rain - from the outside Cold - inside me Pain - now we suffer Dark - is my mind Pain - oh we suffer Rain - wish I could ... ... BURN BURN .... For the Sake of our unborn children With the mind of a hunted ghost We confess we are strong and willing Now persist! Let us reach the coast !

about

The new, fourth album by BLACK SPACE RIDERS is here ... and it's called "REFUGEEUM"!
REFUGEEUM, as in "refugees" as well as in "refuge". Deeply moved by what is currently happening on this planet, the band has left its orbital wanderings at least thematically and turned instead to an earthly, eternal issue, one that is, sadly, very topical again: flight and expulsion - loss of home - profound sorrow – the will to survive - hope for what may come - hunted and hunter - victim and perpetrator - acceptance and rejection.

Compared to the band’s internationally acclaimed previous album "D:REI", REFUGEEUM, with its nine songs and about an hour’s playing time, is almost compact.

The band has managed to evolve its style and give space to what it likes, while also respecting its roots.
REFUGEEUM is profound both lyrically and musically. The whole album is pervaded by a sublime and uplifting atmosphere that oscillates between dreamy and gripping, sadness and hope, longing and pursuit.

The songs are complex, yet catchy, and continue to resonate for a long time after listening. The two lead singers, JE and SEB, work in harmony in expression, feeling and versatility. The guitars dare to even greater openness and clarity. In every song, there are exciting, and at the same time often unexpected, grooves, a rich bass foundation, and a drumming that develops and drives the song.

The band has expanded its original fat riff and space cosmos to encompass anthemic and melodic lead guitars. It integrates playful beats, and trip-hop, dub, and New Wave elements. This makes REFUGEEUM exciting and varied.

An album that’s like a journey. Varied and yet fluent, a unified whole. An album that also takes a stance. REFUGEEUM sounds great, has something to say, is moving, and also great to listen to!
