about

Farseer Glasgow, UK

Power metal from the heathen bastard realm of Scotland.

Pounding drums, thundering bass, lightning guitars and and soaring vocals all meld together to form a veritable beast. Farseer retain the qualities and melodies of traditional power metal alongside a thicker and heavier sound.

For fans of Blind Guardian, Gamma-Ray, Iron Maiden, Persuader and more.

Track Name: Nightmares Collide
NIGHTMARES COLLIDE
(M: J.R. Stewart / L: D. Bisset, J.R. Stewart)

Into the darkness your nightmares collide
The chaos of your mind. Your body’s growing cold
Sanity corrodes – sheer terror manifests in man
Your soul will pay the toll at the path of the damned

I’ve lost my train of thought
Thrown beyond the threshold
Towards the masquerade

(Nightmares Collide) – When you wake up in your room
(Nightmares Collide) – With dark shadows watching you
The walls are closing in;
your fears will creep beneath your skin
(Nightmares Collide) – And you’re trapped inside

Stand and fight or turn to run the choice it must be made
Primal might is reeling from your core
You’re stranded in a distant place, forlorn in time
Turn around and look into the eyes of a lesser mind

I’ll never look behind
I must outrun this danger
The demons of my mind

(Nightmares Collide) – When you wake up in your room
(Nightmares Collide) – With dark shadows watching you
The walls are closing in;
your fears will creep beneath your skin
(Nightmares Collide) – And you’re trapped inside

{Solo: J. R. Stewart)
{Solo: D. R. Connolly}

(Nightmares Collide) – When you wake up in your room
(Nightmares Collide) – With dark shadows watching you
The walls are closing in;
your fears will creep beneath your skin
(Nightmares Collide) – And you’re trapped inside

Nightmares collide
Nightmares collide
The walls are closing in;
your fears will creep beneath your skin
And you’re trapped inside
Track Name: Second Strike
SECOND STRIKE
(M: D.R. Connolly / L: D. Bisset, D.R. Connolly)

Woke up today and nothing seemed the same
Like a new born child my slate's wiped clean
Memories of the past is where they're gonna stay
Time to live my life day by day
What comes next is my new sought destiny

Rise to every challenge that will be thrown at you
When the new dawn wakens your life begins a-new

Yesterday is gone, and I don't care about tomorrow
It’s time to live my life
with no fear, no pain, no sorrow
This time I'll do it right, this time I'm gonna fight
I’ve got another chance, my second strike

Your future isn't written in the stars
So build a foundation for your dreams
Forge your own path and set yourself free
Break your own jailer and steal the key
Time to unleash your new found destiny

Rise to every challenge that will be thrown at you
When the new dawn wakens your life begins a-new

Yesterday is gone, and I don't care about tomorrow
It’s time to live my life
with no fear, no pain, no sorrow
This time I'll do it right, this time I'm gonna fight
I’ve got another chance, my second strike

{Solo: J. R. Stewart}

Abandon your regrets that plague
Switch on the beacon that guides your way
One hope will take us there
Maybe in another time
We'll live out the lines of forgotten rhymes
This time it’s all mine

{Solo: D. R. Connolly}

Yesterday is gone, and I don't care about tomorrow
It’s time to live my life
with no fear, no pain, no sorrow
This time I'll do it right, this time I'm gonna fight
I’ve got another chance, my second strike
Track Name: Game of the Gods
GAME OF THE GODS
(M: D. Bisset, D. R. Connolly / L: D. Bisset)

Here I am eyes of eternity
I can change my guise so I can see
How best to pull your strings and make you dance
But she could change everything given half a chance

All must challenge me but no one wins
Cast your dice the game begins

What you see and what you get is not the same
As we set the board you’ll go insane

I am eternal
I am fate
Resting through the starts eternally
She’s the only one between you and I
As we play our game in the heavens in the sky

Intertwined into time I know your every move
From the day of your birth ‘til you sleep in your tomb
The golden thread holds you up
there is nothing you can do
You can run to the ends of the Earth but you know
I’m following you

I am eternal
I am fate
Resting through the starts eternally
She’s the only one between you and I
As we play our game in the heavens in the sky

{Solo: D. R. Connolly}
{Solo: J. R. Stewart}

You can run to the ends of the Earth
There is nothing you can do
You can run to the ends of the Earth but you know
I’m following you

I am eternal
I am fate
Resting through the starts eternally
She’s the only one between you and I
As we play our game in the heavens in the sky
Track Name: Chthonic Visions
CHTHONIC VISIONS
(M: J.R. Stewart / L: D. Bisset, J.R. Stewart, D.R. Connolly)

Across a tranquil land of old prosperity
There roams a lonely man who hides nobility
His thoughtless mind cannot see the great command
His path has been laid by one not of this land.

Ride on the wings of time. This Universe of life divine
Don't take for granted what you know
Countless worlds will pass your eyes
You have no chance, now say goodbye

Fade from the place you knew
I'll grant you powers known to few
To break the shackles of the mind
See what mortals only dream
The first is of your last - a grim and hellish scene

Heed what Gaia spake - a testament of faith
She will give you all you need
Hear the heavens quake - a symphony of fate
May my will succeed where evil breeds

Rising from eternity
These haunting visions come to me
I see the future twist and turn
Staring into the abyss
Mankind's end has come to this

Shadows live in dark and light
Out of mind and out of sight
But reside in the hearts of men
An evil force we can't withstand
Mother Gaia! Guide our hand

Heed what Gaia spake - a testament of faith
She will give you all you need
Hear the heavens quake - a symphony of fate
May my will succeed where evil breeds
Testify! Sacrifice! Enforce this holy law.

This world has crossed a hallowed line.
Blood is the price, forfeit your life.
Entombed from your life’s embrace
Salvation is the key to unlock this hypocrisy

I will rise above all, heed my burdens call
Visions that empower me, bound by Karma’s decree
Punish all the wicked ones, sinners and the saints
Hear my voice, fear my name, judgement comes as holy flame
