subsequentseer Phenomenally executed power prog with wonderful melodies & orchestrations. Musicianship is top notch & Krista's vocals are mesmerizing. Missed this when it came out but so glad I found it, don't let this slip under your radar! Favorite track: The Wraith.

Obschemie This is such a fun album; great guitar-driven symphonic metal stuffed with riffs and solos, superb drumming, and vocal hooks. The album ends on a final, meditative interlude to hitting play again. Favorite track: Quiver of Deception.

Andre Veloux Pretty stunning from start to finish. Musicianship, performance and songwriting all top! Can't wait for more from Dialith.

Hard to pick a favourite track, but Quiver of Deception gets it for the unexpected and fantastic one off guitar riff that ends it. Favorite track: Quiver of Deception.

Set sail out East Search for clues of the beast The creature ruling the sea The world is in my way My life’s revenge Retribution for all the pain and I lost my fight When my sight was taken from me I won’t stop until I find my way I hear you calling out A beacon deafening to me It fills my years with longing Half-remembered melodies I won’t give up on you I know I’ll find my way I won’t give in to fear By the gods I won’t be swayed But I’d give anything to hear the sound of your voice Advancing the helm The beast blocks my path My trial is closing in Wandering through the fog Losing my fear Dark waves crash against the hull The stars guide me And the sea speaks in whispered words I won’t stop until I find my way I hear you calling out A beacon deafening to me It fills my years with longing Half-remembered melodies It feels so distant now But I sail in the shadow of my own eyes Unrelenting winds There is nothing for me here But I push on For my one For my fate As you call to me I won’t give up on you I know I’ll find my way I won’t give in to fear By the gods I won’t be swayed But I’d give anything to hear the sound of your voice I hear you calling out A beacon deafening to me It fills my years with longing Half-remembered melodies It feels so distant now But I sail in the shadow of my own eyes Unrelenting winds There is nothing for me here But I push on For my one For my fate As you call to me I won’t give up on you I know I’ll find my way I won’t give in to fear By the gods I won’t be swayed But I’d give anything to hear the sound of your voice

What a promise that I have made To trade my place among the gods Flowering fields of my homeland Distant memories My spring light I cling to you But I know life goes on While I’m chained here I leave my summer garden Once again Every autumn I go Deep below the earth This is not my doing at all The ground opened up beneath me Sleeping sound in the river Guilt devours Behold My design The sun grows cold Life decays Frost consumes While you’re chained there I leave my summer garden Once again Every autumn I go Deep below the earth Journey there, the place where the fire dwells A sheltered soul heeds the call Journey there, the place where the fire dwells The only master of the rivers in hell I leave my summer garden Once again Every autumn I go Deep below the earth Journey there, the place where the fire dwells A sheltered soul heeds the call Journey there, the place where the fire dwells A sheltered soul heeds the call

Libra 05:08
Cover me With your hymnals Divine wisdom Speaking in tongues You had me wash away the sinful Libra, tip the scales Burn the pages to ash Violence and machinery Our greed unabashed A mirror shattered here Wakened a beast Descending down to the earth Survival is our only master Greed is king Worship the strong They can decide your fate Oh, Libra Libra, tip the scales Burn the pages to ash Violence and machinery Our greed unabashed Unclean intentions Mutilate my fate Wait for life to take over again Tainted memories At the end of the dream Once they’ve faded I’ll have lost my way Endless unease Libra, tip the scales Burn the pages to ash Violence and machinery Our greed unabashed Something starved within Reality made false I fear that I have wrecked this house I built Fervent yearning For a life untold Only time will end our journey
5.
Mourning the walls we tore down Emptiness that stings deep Compete for a false crown Aching for a winter’s sleep My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains Brittle bones and deep-set eyes Sallow skin and little lies Every movement is a measure Gone from hearts and missing pleasure My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains No longer a dream Life rips me at the seams Light fades within There’s nothing to lose My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains My heart is raven-black Turning when your hand went slack No more left to say Break the chains

Hiding your actions Cover them with lies Alone with your thoughts Blame the ones you love Casting shame on the world You encouraged me To open up Exposed my core With risk of My abandonment But you planned this all along False acceptance Bleeding through your teeth You told me The world was in my hands And you raised all my hopes up You encouraged me To open up Exposed my core With dreams of Accomplishment But you planned this all along Cloaked in red Evaporating pain Controlling the forces of deceit I believed Duplicitous glass Smoke and mirrors breathe With all your invention Contrive authority From the will of devotion You encouraged me To open up Exposed my core And now I will I’ll fight my way out You will not be the end of me
7.
A moment’s passed, time left in its wake The flowing steam holding me down, and I ache You built up walls Can't see the sky All color is drained when the river runs dry The stones erode away In the end So like a snake hidden away in grass You fought for the right to be cruel Pretend that you stand Above us all, we wait for you to judge our sins I won't listen anymore They'll leave you here Once you've crossed their line They have no qualms about leaving you behind The seeds they buried in the sand Were all but poison to the soil Withered away, nothing more No dissent now A single mind A mission that leaves our humanity behind Against all of the lies I’ll remain So like a snake hidden away in grass You fought for the right to be cruel Pretend that you stand Above us all, we wait for you to judge our sins I won't listen anymore So like a snake hidden away in grass You fought for the right to be cruel Pretend that you stand Above us all, we wait for you to judge our sins I won't listen anymore I won’t listen anymore
8.
Fading away from the night sky Bursting with light seen from afar Catching hearts and minds In its wake once again I watch them I watch them die In the end You will be there to hear My goodbye Every time you think of me Look up to the sky Galaxies form and fade I’ve seen them go Departing the space they’ve claimed long ago Nebulae in their path take their place floating through And someday I’ll follow you In the end You will be there to hear My goodbye This is not Where I leave you One last time Even stars will die This is not your time, it’s mine In the end You will be there to hear My goodbye Every time, in every breath I’m calling I’m calling your name And as I cross the sky The sun will set on my life

Catalyst 04:45
Undermining Institutions of fear Rejecting all possessed A waning moon Turned away from life This will be your test of Faith will lead you there Heart, humbled and true I am redemption, this is your only choice The catalyst We are broken Abominable creatures Will you step aside? Misgivings grow Losing your mind This will be your test of Faith will lead you there Heart, humbled and true I am redemption, this is your only choice The catalyst Listen close They’re hidden from you Faith will lead you there Heart, humbled and true I am redemption, this is your only choice The catalyst
10.
The Wraith 05:08
The streets below They hide our voice Falling away from light The crow is my guide Gleaming with pride My compass The wraith steals away Alone, I fall Awake, alive on a sailing ship At the breaking dawn of life The lynx, she prowls in me The wraith, she haunts my dreams The crow is my guide Gleaming with pride My compass The wraith steals away Alone, I fall Six of us, we crossed the ice All for our own Our own reasons The shadows lingered in their eyes Perfect lies Raise the dagger Saints, be with me My blade will cut you clean The crow is my guide Gleaming with pride My compass The wraith steals away Alone, I fall
11.
In our short-sightedness We failed to curb demand Marching toward extinction Leave the whole world behind Devastation, destruction Creations scrape the sky Exploration underwater We aim to travel to the stars Crumbling structures into dust The sun is setting on our sprawling kingdom Nature’s rebellion will be just Humankind’s self-importance, our downfall Oceans and seas, they will rise Lonely seers warned us all Blindly, we watched the demise Of things grand and small Revolution, confrontation Order cannot be kept Suffering through hellfire Nothing will make it through to the end Crumbling structures into dust The sun is setting on our sprawling kingdom Nature’s rebellion will be just Humankind’s self-importance, our downfall Crumbling structures into dust The sun is setting on our sprawling kingdom Nature’s rebellion will be just Humankind’s self-importance, our downfall Reclamation Alteration Innocence, origin, century, ambition Innocence, origin, century, ambition Innocence, origin, century Sancta vita
