about

Ascension Of Kings, is not a concept album, but has a clear and distinct theme. There is a three-part suite within the album entitled ‘Clanaan Chronicles’ which will continue in subsequent albums and follows a story written by Treece-Birch in the vein of Narnia/Lord of The Rings which see the rescue/redemption of a tortured realm by the Seventh Rider, from an evil dictator; leading ultimately to the ‘ascension’ of the Seventh Rider to the prophesied King.

There is a spiritual element to ‘Ascension Of Kings’ providing a cohesive structural element to the powerful and compelling music. Strange Dreams has a ‘Matrix’ type theme to the lyric, whilst Vision tells the story of Moses vs Rameses from the perspective of a slave. Weight Of The World grips the listener with the story of desperation and fear that can cripple the soul but how that burden can be lifted through each other and true friendship.

This is truly a collaborative group of musicians, each member a gifted songwriter in their own right, their individual “bare-bones” ideas are brought to the table for refinement and development by the entire band; resulting in an explosion of sound and lyric magnificence all borne of the natural flow of the creative effort of the collective.

Track Name: Fourth Kingdom
FOURTH KINGDOM

From the four winds of heaven and from the sea
Came they, strange beasts, four kingdoms that would be
Yet the fourth stronger than the rest, more power, overcoming all
With teeth of iron, crushing, tearing, destroying, nations great and small

With might and strength, smashing down
Killing all within its path with terrifying sound
Trample underfoot, all who dare stand in its way
But yet erosion from within, kingdom divided, falling down with feet of iron and clay

Yet the ancient of days takes His throne
His hair, His robes, as white as driven snow
And His throne is a flame of fire
And His kingdom is forever and my desire

It shall devour the whole Earth and in arrogance reign
Speak against the most high; persecute those without blame
Yet within its dominion shall a true kingdom arise!
A kingdom of love a kingdom of truth that shall wipe the tears from their eyes

Yet the ancient of days takes His throne
His hair, His robes, as white as driven snow
And His throne is a flame of fire
And His kingdom is forever and my desire

KBD-solo

Yet the ancient of days takes His throne
His hair, His robes, as white as driven snow
And His throne is a flame of fire
And His kingdom is forever and my desire
Tens upon tens of thousands now stand in this place
In the court are seated to see Him face to face
And the books are opened,
And the books are opened……
Track Name: Return Of The King
STRANGE DREAMS

Are you awake or in a dream?
In this place is nothing real?
I wonder why we can’t break free unaware blissfully, unaware blissfully

Perception is reality
In this place it all comes clear
Moving mountains with a sound the links and threads to which we’re bound
The links and threads to which we’re bound

It can’t be taught; it can’t be bought
It cannot be denied, be denied

Are you awake or in a dream?
In this place is nothing real?
I wonder why we can’t break free unaware blissfully, unaware blissfully

Change the program; rewrite the code
Deny the logic that we’re sold
Go off-road and deviate, wake up, wake-up, elevate! (Wake up, wake-up, elevate!)

It can’t be taught; it can’t be bought
It cannot be denied, be denied
This strange dream, this strange dream

Illuminate the real
Then the flame of hope inside appears
We reveal this place
Then opened eyes expose the layers in time and space

It can’t be taught; it can’t be bought
It cannot be denied, be denied
And when you know a seed will grow
And all you were will cease then start
Track Name: Strange Dreams

Track Name: Realm With A Soul (Clanaan pt2)
REALM WITH A SOUL

Here in a place between
Is a realm of dreams
A soul touched the void
Inside limbotic discord

Hear whisperings refract
Feel light from the soul retract
As emptiness smothers the light
Daylight reigns in the night

Feel the walls closing in
Searching inside search within
Where all forms seem to form
A place a realm with a soul
Track Name: Weight Of The World
WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

You tell me that it’s chance
Fates rolling dice sets the wheels of circumstance
The pressure of it all
The media pulls and pushes with the flow

The weight of the world on my shoulders
More than I could bare
Then you held out your hand
Helped me to understand (to understand)
These rules don’t apply (rules don’t apply)
Not for you or I

A victim of naivety
An innocent pawn bound by laws like gravity
Drained of hope I feared
And in fear came as my will disappeared

The weight of the world on my shoulders
More than I could bare
I am not afraid
In our secret place (our secret place)
High above the clouds (high above the clouds)
Where eagles soar far from the maddening crowds

I know the truth
Everywhere, all around is proof
I see it now, it’s all so clear
Always
You’re here
Track Name: Vision
VISION

Part one: Captivity
Stories we were told, from an age away
Taken from our homes, shackled and enslaved
We were beaten, bound and broken
The sun blinds our eyes
The sun burns our skin
We build the pharaohs’ tomb, in death he’ll wait within
There’s no ending, only suffering

Rumours of a man, royalty in this land
With wonders shows these gods, that one God has his hand
They won’t hear him, mock and jeer him
Crowds gathering, as something draws us near
Then a voice was heard, for all the slaves to hear
Then he spoke out, “Set my people free”

Heed the warnings, this miracle’s for real
There’s no magic, why do you not fear?
Your heart is hardened
You ignore the signs
Beware these portents!
Please release us; it shouldn’t end like this,
No one wants you, sent to the abyss
The final sorrow, of your firstborn sons,
Set my people free

Part two: Exodus
(Instrumental break)
Then at this place
The greatest sight that one could ever face
A staff raised on high
Commands the sea and waves to divide

Part three: Red Sea
(Instrumental break)
A vision of a home in paradise
A vision to be free
A home for you and me

As heirs this kingdom we will see
We are royalty
We are royalty

A promise that goes beyond this life
Into eternity
Into eternity
