Gears of Rock Still digging this early Shadow of Everest single from The Hunting Ground LP so we just had to own it!!! Great progressive hard rock with old school groove metal vibes. Can’t ever go wrong with all of the talent in this group. Favorite track: Castle in the Sky.

The first explosive single from The Hunting Ground EP.


Crave what you hate
A junkie for displeasure
Go to where the road bends
It’s so familiar
Close to the edge
Fringing on the terrible
Dine on all the strange you find
Eat your fill

Couldn’t see the splendor from the underground
There was no will to satisfy
Pull me out of the loss and the ruin
Those broken pieces will build our castle in the sky

Rein in the chaos
It’s what the people want
No sudden movements
Just wander among the stones
Stand in the river
Watch the madness float away
Breathe deep the freedom as you
Let it go
