about

GHOST IRIS - the most streamed Danish metal act of 2016 and one of the rising stars in the djent and tech-metal scene is
going to release a new album in 2017. The band was only founded in 2015 but already toured Europe twice. After the release
of their debut album “Anecdotes Of Science & Soul” in 2015 (via Prime Collective), the band gained a lot of interest in the
scene and played Euroblast and UK Tech-Fest amongst others. Now Ghost Iris are back with their new album entitled “Blind
World”. Their style evolved to a more complex and funk-inspired Djent-Tech-Sound that delivers heavy riffs and equilibrated
guitar playing of Nicklas Grønlund Thomsen which perfectly interacts with a focussed songwriting and memorable melodies of
leadsinger Jesper Vicencio.

Track Name: Gods Of Neglect
Lest we forget the forgotten victims
Their yearning for freedom
It roars with discontent

The Gods of neglect
Continues their endeavors
Bearing but nothing in mind
Indulging and consuming
Tearing down the towers of life

Draining the lake of immortality

Lest we forget the forgotten victims
It roars with discontent

The Gods of neglect
Continues their endeavors
Bearing but nothing in mind
Tearing down the towers of life

Indulging and consuming
Draining the lake of immortality

The vice of egotism will surely be
The end of anthropocentrism

Track Name: Save Yourself
The question that will forever linger
Is the one that I will not dare answer

Am I the one to give up on
Are we entwined, like the gateways
That binds our affection?

Our time was minute
But the affection spun a lifetime
Stagnant mind, stagnate
Save yourself from the intrepid state

Dig your way out of the madness
Rebuild and start again
Prepare for the undying sadness
Tear it down now

Track Name: The Flower Of Life
Feeling the fire
Feeling the flame
Endlessly searching this lonely terrain

The apogee of our dreamless state
Forever ensuring humanity’s fate

The flower of life is in decay
Foil by foil, we rejoice its fall
The flower of life is wasting away
Foil by foil, we embrace its call

It’s the sweetest river
One flowing so gracefully
It makes one quiver
It makes you shiver

This thousand-year plight
Ensuring an endless fight

We amass in a safe haven
One we always dreamt off
It leads us to our salvation

The flower of life

Track Name: Pinnacle
An apocalypse of life is setting in
Thoughts start wearing thin
Never giving in to certainty

A pinnacle of life has been reached
It’s been a gloomy saunter for years
I’m longing for the fortune of life
I’m inside out, hungering for more

Hungry for more
When all is said and done
What have I become

I would never know where to end this
To restart my wretched self
I would never know where to end this
To distort my shameful path

Conformity lacking entirely
When all is said and done
What have I become?

A fraction of what once was
Or something greater than life

A Pinnacle of life has been reached
It’s been a gloomy saunter for years
I’m longing for the fortune of life
I’m inside out, hungering for more

Track Name: No Way Out
Living is easy with eyes closed
Indifference is the simple road
Nothing’s anyone’s anything anymore
A time of freedom has arrived
So let’s join in harmony

Everything collapses around me,
And yet I find myself in a state of reverie

There’s no way out of here
There’s nothing left to do
There’s no way that I could bear
To find myself
In a place of nowhere

But escape appears to be an illusion
Delusion, confusion, it will all erupt
Nowhere to rest my weary head
Unproven solution, it will all erupt in the end

Everything transposes inside me
And yet I find myself in a state of reverie

There’s no way, no there’s no way
That I can do
What you wish me to

Track Name: Time Will Tell
The tale of troubled minds
Confused by vivid dreams
The ones that defines
The ones that make me seem

Distressed and hopeless
Drifting through anxiety
That are tunnels of visions
Prophecies of spoiled memories

Darkness is my mother
But in light I dwell
Confide in each other
And time will tell

Distressed and hopeless
Drifting through these nightmares

It manifests like entities
That defines the narrow line
That was once my prime

Escaping stagnation
Is the ultimate challenge
Giving in to temptation
Is my final imbalance

We will confide in each other
So only time will tell

Track Name: The Silhouette
Inseparable beings of affection
That were never meant to be
Volcanic voices of exploding light
Pleads us to cease

Volcanic voices, exploding lights
Volcanic voices pleads us to cease

The force draws us nearer
Magnetically
Our scars adorn the impending disaster

A silhouette of past times
That surely reminds me of you
And then we were entangled
A devotion so grand and so true

But we are indifferent and deafened
But we are empowered by empathy
And lack of sleep

The force draws us nearer
Indefinitely on a tether
Our scars adorn the impending disaster

A unity of mourning truthfully
The output of two people
Can never be too peaceful

The force draws us nearer
Magnetically close together

A silhouette that surely reminds me of you
Because we were devoted to something
So grand and so true

So grand and so true.

Track Name: After The Sun Sets
There is light on the inside
A light that burns
It will burn until the bitter end

That light will keep on burning
The fight it never ends
And the light will keep me yearning.

After the sun sets
The world goes blank
It’s in this stage
I find my peace
The gloom washes over me

But even in peace
I struggle to find my place
I battle to ignite the flame

When the sun rises
The world is chaotic
During this stage
I fly away

The world is blind

Track Name: Detached
Belonging was never a given
Belonging seemed so dim
My head was in the clouds
Everyday was grim

Like a shroud of doubt
Descending was impossible
When solitary I felt solitude

Being detached
Was never lonesome
It made the most sense
The feeling was intense

This feeling was intense

An immense longing
For the unattainable
Barely sustainable

The consciousness concurs
In consistent calm
And continue on its callous path
