rolline The other reviewers are correct, it's almost impossible to pick a favorite track. The first three songs are solid, then on track 4 the tone changes to something more experimental, Underworld is the calm before the storm, then the last four tracks form a flowing synth rock masterpiece. Highly recommended, so far this is my favorite album of 2020. Favorite track: No One's Gonna Save Us.

Daniel Baranski I had a very hard time with this album. Normally on any music album there are one or maximum two perfect songs on them. But in this one I hardly know which song to pick als the favorite track. In the end I had to choose between 6 tracks. My wish for the moment: I want Maxthor to proceed and make my next decision as hard as for this one. Favorite track: Crossing the Line.

I'd rather die than lose you again But you're gone without a trace A veil of lies, a ghost with no name An endless void behind your face Fear has made us blind Will a million dawns take this numbing pain away? You've erased my mind You have burnt my hopes Am I just a piece in a game you play? I can't escape this fiction No truth will set us free I can't escape this fiction There's nothing left of me If we believe no one is to blame why do we feel betrayed? The unreal world we've built in our heads The haunting voice we've learnt to obey

Trapped inside the limits that others placed upon us Fear will be our saviour We could be free at last Hide, hide every feeling until the storm passes by You can't back down Don't give up the fight We go through the city lights together (We don't make a sound) Now I see the glowing of their guns We should start to run Run into the dark blue sky Take my hand and close your eyes Deep inside a nightmare Your heart is fearful and blind I won't escape without you I won't leave you behind Now, now that I've found you I know there'll be no more lies Don't, don't back down Don't give up the fight

Hiding from the street lights I've got a long way to go Embers of the fire that still burns within us all I am broken inside Looking for a hand to hold Ashes of a Phoenix that will never be reborn I don't wanna wait no more I won't fight this losing war I'm running away I've been silent for so long Everything we had is gone and won't be back again I'll rise when the night falls I'll break down these high walls I'll rise when the night falls I'll dive into my own world I'll rise when the night falls Thunders tear the dim sky Should have known that we were wrong Embers of the fire that still burns within us all Victims of a cruel lie Waiting for a chance to save your soul Ashes of a Phoenix that will never be reborn
4.
A thousand secrets you'll never fear anymore A thousand answers, feels I've been here before Fainthearted angels holding their hands as they fall I won't surrender, I'll crawl out of this hole And I'll tear down the sky until the light breaks through I'll drain the oceans dry This world's no longer true Crossing the line As my heartbeat gets higher Crossing the line Setting my past on fire A black coiled serpent slumbers inside of the sun You say it's over when it has just begun I dream of leaving but no one will ever know Your end is coming, I'll keep my wings unfolded

As a bright red sun begins to hide the shadows rise The heart of cosmos turns to stone Deep inside where nightmares come to life The darkness shines And all I know is once I'm gone I won't be back All the curtains fall All the whispers die Matter melts away before my eyes A new day will come But I'll wonder why I can't wake up from this endless night I'm lost in the underworld I'm lost in the underworld I still can hear the voice behind the fading lights And all I know is once I'm gone I won't be back
6.
I'm waiting for a sign I still don't know if this is true Why is it so hard to find a way to free myself from you Is this my inception? It is just my end? Will this new deception make me lose my head This is not the answer Pain won’t go away And somehow I feel No one's gonna save us No one's gonna save us... You tried to drag me down I showed you how to heal your wounds I've lost the strength to climb the twisting path that leads to you Cause no one's gonna save us Can’t trust the things you said The secret's hidden in your eyes Now that my love is dead Why should I need a reason why You tried to drag me down (I can’t heal my wounds) I lost the strength to climb (I know you did too) There’s nothing left in ourselves And somehow I feel No one's gonna save us

Face down, life escapes from my eyes again Blackout swallows me I wait for the end Wrecked moons cross the sky Unicorns are gone Leave now, darkness comes And stars bleed above you The oceans turn to ice I guess I always knew that nothing ever dies An ancient flame starts to rise I'm back to you Nothing will destroy our world I'm back to you, I'm back to you No pulse in my heart No words in my brain White smoke fills the night Ashes fall like rain Black clouds, massive holes growing on the Sun Leave now, darkness comes Hiding from the emptiness Far beyond the horizon's fading light Voices from a dying land All the buried hopes come back to life Come back to life
8.
Don't you see the fateful clouds above our heads Don't you feel the time has come for you to run away Will you try to feed the hope inside your heart Now that every promise falls apart You're still deaf to the thunders rolling We're the thoughts of a mind that's bound in chains Raise your eyes and together we will set this world in flames I'm going through this alone Don't know what lies ahead And once again I'm feeling like the last man on Earth Don't believe this fantasy will never end Don't you hear the voices from beyond this barren land? Will you try to find a way out of this trap Now that every promise falls apart

I'll find another world before the darkness comes I'll go beyond the stars looking for a new home Won't waste another day 'cause the fire in my heart is gone The moon above the mountains The sky after the storm Those times when I was free and I felt so strong The howlings in the distance The beauty and the joy Is gone, all is gone And there's nothing I can do I can do to show you that you're wrong And there's no way I would stay 'cause all I had is gone 'Cause all I had is gone The madness and the fear The battles that I fought Those days when all was pure and you read my thoughts I'll forget every second 'cause the glory that I saw is gone The future and the memories The things that I have never done I'll sail into a sea of blindness and remorse The magic and the wonder and the need to be alone Is gone, all is gone All the nightmares and the wisdom The cold sparkle in your eyes Every hope and every pleasure All the colors of the light All the tales and all the heartbeats And the words that bound my tongue Every night and every sunrise now is gone

about

Maxthor Madrid, Spain

Coming out of Spain in a haze of neon lights, electro synth pulses and eighties rock brilliance is Maxthor, a three piece with a unique and original retro futuristic sound.

Forging a broad spectrum of influences, Maxthor take irresistible echoes of eighties giants like Phil Collins, Billy Idol and Survivor and filter them through their own lens of synth driven futurist-nostalgia.
