Jean Luca N. M. An album filled with Ethereal Riffian's best songs from an awesome live show so if you like their stuff this is a must! Favorite track: Drum of the Deathless (Afterlight).

Mykhailo If you haven't seen Ethereal Riffian playing live, this DVD is the best way to fix such omission as fast as possible: high quality sound, great musicians' performance, amazing operators' work (kudos to Kirai Gigs team), interesting animations/quotes between the songs and, traditionally for this band, awesome packaging!
Highly recommended! Favorite track: Drum of the Deathless (Afterlight).

NecroBulldozer thumbnail
NecroBulldozer A moderate fan of ER...until now. I'm a sucker for live concert dvds and this one just takes you into an entirely different world. The mixing/sound/video is absolutely perfect. The performances are perfect. Everything they set out to accomplish with the viewer they did. Don't miss out on this. Favorite track: March of Spiritu (Afterlight).

Nature's spirit feels the mighty presence Smoke rises from the voodoo's wand Two worlds collide to form the essence As shaman speaks the ancient chant Search for reasons Cleanse your soul May not darkness Take you whole Black matter gathers 'round the sacred stone Night sky will lead his soul away The world of living waits the golden dawn As old one's spirit flies astray The nebula cries Beneath the cosmic mountain Astral guardians rise For the truth is beyond
Timeless beings feed etheric substance Languid haze creates the perfect blend Vibration completes unearthly riddance The limit, bounded can't transcend
Mystery, divinely bestowed existence Your mind among the myriads of forms It's inside every atom, the wakan consistence All-providing one's germs Outsourced from the center of being To embrace the unity again Vivid voices inside you are hearing And they drive you insane Open the eye that sees Untie the ear which hears Answer aeonian call Betide the mind, that’s all These eyes can see These ears can hear Listen, listen... Amalgamate with the endless Perceive through lens of timeless
The sightless leaves the bondage, uncovers sight Through aeons, call of the timeless allaxis minds Exempts the confined Restores the forgotten enshrined Egolution outshines cherubic seeing Hollow sun, the luring light it can not shed Hear that voice from the center of one’s being To this ocean beneath the waves I lay my head Calm lore, infinite shore Star skies, passage shines Iron bars of the flesh absolve the spirit Shimmer road before my eyes, I’m going home
Nothingness, absolute dissolution The crossing made aeons ago Eternal and bleak involution Rephaims we timelessly flow Shadows of Sheol, sublimate Universal presence, Nihil endured Deprivation of serenity With hollow eyes we gaze Overconscious, mystic insanity Sets the shadows ablaze Can we open the shutters of daze? Samsaric wheel stopped turning To relief forth they march Etheric substance burning Bleak burning, of rephaims starch
When haze disperse Embrace the insight's birth This vision is higher Illusions pyre One blissful awe Of knowing seeds sown The end means nothing Beginning never was One luring source And all is one, forever Everything is nothing ...observe Potions opened Liberation flows Oneness token Consciousness' river glows Potions opened Inhale serenity Liberation, liberation.... Abandoned restless mana Awakened spirit shines
Dust abodes, ephemeral and fettered All things riddled with the script divine Epiphany unfolds with the pulse of the matrix Behold, and you'll see its might Surrender No matter priests bawl No matter eras fall No matter mind's noise Tune into drum's voice Just stand in the middle of the war That leads us to the selfless notion Ascend, absorb this potion Just sail, from the never to the core Of what we are in this formful fable Lay down in the Deathless cradle Drum's heard, ships sail All to witness the gale
The agony and torture once more are delivered Faceless tormentor emerged once again Dire chimaras see you, their teeth shimmer Know, they're all but a reflection of your pain Introspect the duality's riddle to locate the real enemy On the anvil of Thy, put your will and forge Forge, till mind gets melted, and blacksmith is no more But forge diligently, scurpulously Step on the path of timeless legends Hold this sword of the warrior He who has slain all the enemies
Break the chains, which bind you What eyes see is blur Hope the truth will guide you In this world and above Reach the twelfth dimension Reach the stars, shine bright Infinite is granted For the soul which sheds light
