Jason Anderson Wow, great album with really great vocal harmonies and solid songs throughout. Definitely checks all the boxes for me! Favorite track: Heavy Echoes.

Bucky Warlung have entered the warp zone of proto-doom meets progressive fuzz on their latest mix of harmonic metal. Dueling guitars plunge the night with eerie riffs and groovy rhythm as the melodic vocals cry on slowly and hypnotically.

Lute FP This is killer music. Almost poppy melodic doom at its core, it sounds a bit like Ghost went progressive rock. Definitely a retro vibe, excellent songwriting. Two big thumbs up.

FDJ Melodic and heavy in equal measure "Immortal Portal" has a classic rock feel yet at the same time is rooted in the underground rock of today.

about

WARLUNG Houston, Texas

Founded in 2016, former members of Houston's The Dead Revolt and Rivers joined forces to push the limits of song writing and creativity. Inspired by the sounds of old, WARLUNG has taken what the 70's era of rock and psychedelia gave us and turned it into a hi-powered, white knuckled ride, down the rock n' roll highway. The debut album is entitled, "Sleepwalker". ... more

Track Name: Black Horse Pike
Black Horse Pike riding in the night
With death's hands firmly in mine
Words for the seer to kill the non-believers
Drop down and raise their heads up high to the sky

Blood, fire and rain upon this holy place
We cleanse you of what you know not
Don't run away, our wrath is like a plague
I beckon them to put you in your grave

Inching his way, coming closer
Putrid and foul was his odor
Eyes staring over my shoulder
Dark heavy hands taking over

Four horsemen ride to the other side
Make your peace before you die
A death bell on horseback, we leave behind death's tracks
And then we move on to the next one's life
Track Name: The Palm Reader
Could feel her hands taking over
I felt a moment of peace
Tracing the lines with her fingers
Along my simian crease

The palm reader took me to a grave
I've become her eternal slave

Foretelling all of my future
A superstitious belief
Just then her smile had faded
Her face was stricken with grief

The palm reader took me to a grave
I've become her eternal slave
Track Name: We All Die in the End
I can't see the faces in my head
They keep telling me you'll soon be dead
Doesn't matter to me, living it ain't free
Oh well

The preacher said my minds filled with regret
Upset about the things you'll never get
I sat there with a grin, no way you'll ever win
Oh well

It's a parasite crawling in my mind
You can run and hide, its behind your eyes
It'll take your life, devour your insides
It's a parasite crawling in my mind

Everyone has something deep to say
I turn around and they just walk away
Seems to work for me, although you'll never see
Oh well

You run and hide when I come through the door
You whine and moan but your life's just a bore
Don't be my friend, we all die in the end
Oh well

It's a parasite crawling in my mind
You can run and hide, its behind your eyes
It'll take your life, devour your insides
It's a parasite crawling in my mind
Track Name: Between the Dark and the Light
Between the dark and the light
He waits there with fourth-dimension eyes
Across the plains of infinite time
Follow his path through the astral divide

A place only God goes to sleep
A realm only seen when you dream
The feeling of awakening
A glimpse in time is what your mind sees

It's all around you, it's the place that's getting closer in low sight
It's flowing through you, it's the place between the dark and the light

Wake up to oceans of time
To distant shores of past lives
Don't turn to see the divide
Gaze upon the deep astral sky

When you make it to the end
He'll show you how he made it all begin
And when that moment comes past
Swim in cosmic tides and wake before the crash

It's all around you, it's the place that's getting closer in low sight
It's flowing through you, it's the place between the dark and the light
Track Name: Psychonauts
Arise you forlorn beast, sword and spear await
Claw at death's feet, kill to keep your place
Away in the dying sun, wash your hands of this blood
Rest for what's to come, stain the night with this flood
Cause we're riding on oblivion

Astral shamans guide, spectre at the end of life
Feel them inside your mind, enchanting us to fight
Blood-soaked sacred Earth, prayers to no avail
Warlords cursed to serve on waves of death we sail
Cause we're riding on oblivion

This beast destroys all kinds, humanoids from ancient times
War machine has no mortal life, death nomads will fight
Only to draw blood as light fades from this reach
We bathe in darkness into eternity
Cause we're riding on oblivion
Track Name: Heart of a Sinner
Memories past of a broken heart
I've never been much of a healer
How did I draw such unfortunate cards?
I'm putting my blame on the dealer

Cause I have the heart of a sinner

A wall of flames rises up from the ground
A sudden burst of upheaval
Out of the blue I descend from the clouds
To drown in the rivers of evil

Cause I have the heart of a sinner
Track Name: 1970
Can't get a job, no good at school
All of my life I've been looking for something real
Now I'm eighteen and life is cruel
Uncle Sam's coming and he's looking to make a deal

Fighting for the wrong side
Didn't know the whole time
Thought that it was alright
Killing in the name of pride

Break through the nightmare of falling for another scheme
End to the silence, wake up for tomorrow's dream
Yea, you're dying for it

Horror, oh the horror got you all confused
Pacing through the jungle looking for Colonel Kurtz
Memories of shame, gotta heal with booze
Hope you feel calm cause we're looking to make you hurt

Fighting for the wrong side
Didn't know the whole time
Thought that it was alright
Killing in the name of pride

Heros to losers with decorated purple hearts
Sleep with the city on Veteran's Boulevards
Yea, you're dying for it
Track Name: Heavy Echoes
Shield your eyes from the sun
Obey the wise, your song is sung
Smoke some grass, watch time go past
Sometimes too fast, so slow it down

Calming down with a boilermaker
Intoxicating the brain
Move my finger in little circles
Painting my face with the rain

Speak in tongues, your story is told
Clear your lungs, let it flow
No one dies, put fear aside
Cause soon your eyes fill with blood

Calming down with a boilermaker
Intoxicating the brain
Move my finger in little circles
Painting my face with the rain
Track Name: No Son of Mine
My mother told me that I'm no shooting star
I ain't got money but I'm good at guitar
So she says, "my only son but disappointing to far"
And you're no son of mine
Yea you're no son of mine

My father told me to become my own man
I haven't yet but do the best that I can
So he says, "you'll never make it so come up with a plan"
And you're no son of mine
Yea you're no son of mine

First born is a saint, second born is a waste
Child of my flesh, you failed the test
Go and leave us be, change your name for me
Can't you read the signs? No son of mine

My folks, they help me, they tell me what to do
I'm always thinking but I don't think things through
So they say, "I wish we had a better child than you"
And you're no son of mine
Yea you're no son of mine
Track Name: Coal Minors
Angels cry at children's feet for fourteen hours a day
I don't know if you're going home cause then you won't get paid

Black coal in the mines of Satan's soul
Only faces of sorrow
And they'll work till it hurts just to earn them some bread
There's no playtime tomorrow

Demons laugh as children's cries echo through the cave
When you're five you should never die while digging your own grave

Black coal in the mines of Satan's soul
Only faces of sorrow
And they'll work till it hurts just to earn them some bread
There's no playtime tomorrow

Behold your playground of sulfur, slate and peat
Dig till your back hurts or until your fingers bleed
A garden of anthracite and carbon clay
Submission is what I always want from you

Breath in the lignite, a breaker boy's wet dream
Blast through the bedrock to fuel the corporate greed
My darlings, put down your toys, pick up your axe
Compliance is what I always want from you

Black coal in the mines of Satan's soul
Only faces of sorrow
And they'll work till it hurts just to earn them some bread
There's no playtime tomorrow
