Sandero Panda Such an epic and amazing sound. Never thought something this symphonic could be so heavy. A very unique combination and sound which is amazing. Listening to the album as a whole is like a journy to me, I don't have that feeling often. In my opinion most albums have songs that feel very individual, on this album every song strengthens the other songs which is absolutely amazing. Can't wait to hear more from Dialith! Favorite track: Extinction Six.

TheKenWord2017 A tour-de-force of the symphonic power metal genre, Extinction Six avoids every pitfall that has plagued the scene for the last decade and in doing so Dialith rise to the top of my watchlist. You are missing out big time if you pass on this! Favorite track: Break the Chains.

Track Name: Emergence (Intro)
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Sound of Your Voice
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
Track Name: Where Fire Dwells
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
Track Name: Libra
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
Track Name: Break the Chains
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
Track Name: Quiver of Deception
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
Track Name: The River Runs Dry
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
Track Name: In Every Breath
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
Track Name: Catalyst
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
Track Name: The Wraith
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
Track Name: Extinction Six
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
