about

"Where the fuck has Second to Sun been my whole life? The Walk (both the vocal and instrumental versions) is an original creation that surpasses every one of its predecessors. Second to Sun have outdone themselves... Seriously, why aren’t these guys fucking signed??"
- Angry Metal Guy (4/5)

"It will certainly turn the heads of the record executives at Spinefarm, Candlelight and Season of Mist. Expect a record deal in the near future."
- Exclaim!

"A band unafraid to change and adapt, Second To Sun have pulled off a career high here."
- Ghost Cult

"On the one hand, it has many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as EMPEROR, MAYHEM, and DARKTHRONE. Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen's songwriting, Gleb Sysoev's soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky's groovy drum lines."
- Metal-Temple (9/10)

"Powerful and huge as the Tsar's bomb, it wraps you in a dark and dense fog that you will never want to leave."
- RTMB (9/10)

"Second to Sun wrap their groove metal foundation in a tattered funeral shroud of black metal trappings for a result that transcends both in a brilliant marriage of genres."
- Antihero Magazine

"The Walk further diversifies the band’s sound with even darker and colder edges that fit perfectly into the current season, while keeping the pieces that gave them a more unique feel to begin with. Quality stuff for those who like a little bit of fresh flavor injected into the black metal format."
- Dead Rhetoric (8/10)

"It frightens, fascinates and tantalizes."
- Antichrist Magazine

"Second To Sun is proof that you can play interesting music in the east. It's worth checking out Second to Sun. They really make good music."
- Death Magnetic

"Their new nine-song release wastes no time attacking your sense of hearing."
- JP's Music Blog

Track Name: We Are Not Alone
Kill, grab by the head
And shove into the ice-hole
Do not dwell on it
If there they rest in peace

What else to do
If they are conjuring from the outside
And but demons know what is happening
On the prairies in the dark
You don't believe yet, but you will
A century won't measure life
It's not an illusion, not a bad dream
Kissing a cross won't grant salvation
From human thoughts and flesh
Please god save our souls
I'm sure we're not alone

The spell grows stronger
If thousands whisper
The more people join the curse
The stronger beast becomes

And haven't lost their tales
And literacy's useless
Still horrifies, it
And crosses puts across

The wings flapped in the distance
What unspeakable horror
God, please save our souls
Seen it myself: we're not alone in this world
Track Name: Black Lines
Bear hunt is a task for real men
Brave enough to challenge such a formidable beast
Several men are needed, one will never succeed
Telepathy is a gift from gods and mother nature
The forest is growing thicker, the leaves - heavier
Close your eyes and the branches come alive, the air grows darker
With the aid of foreign gods through ice on Vychegda a tear flows
The water element changes its bed, time for me to open my eyes.
A magic impulse midst traditional forms:
Fleece, shamans and the rhythm of creation
The source of thought can be determined
Only if depths of consciousness are fathomed
Repeat one phrase: scars heals
So hard to keep going through thorns and not looking back
Imagine this though: paints come alive
So dreadfully cold
Create, never hesitate
Yet the forest is growing thicker and the leaves - ever so heavy
Close your eyes and the branches come alive, the air grows darker
With the aid of foreign gods through ice on Vychegda a tear flows
The water element changes its bed, time for me to open my eyes.
Track Name: Home
A ramshackle hut
In the thicket, in the middle of nowhere
Can’t see shit
Having snuffed out a candle with her fingers,
At the hut’s front door
Stands a girl
Almost sky-clad, shapely,
Ready. Almost inaudibly a floorboard creaks
Darkness, thrashing above her like a pitch black could of smoke
But without fire.
Unafraid of the dark, she rushes ahead
Lived well, almost a stranger to sorrow
No grief, no loss, gathering happiness
In the palm of her hand, melting the hoarfrost with her warmth
She discards the shirt, eyes rolled to the sky and
Grabbing some stars from there to have the strength
Dissolving in the sweetness completely, long night is still ahead!
A ramshackle hut
In the thicket, in the middle of nowhere
Can’t see shit
Having ignited a candle with her fingers,
At the hut’s front door
Stands a girl
Almost sky-clad, shapely,
She enters the house
A floorboard creaks
A fox darts away
Copse bathed in the light
A hard night it was, if only there was time to gather strength now
Far away from the shades of cities and asphalt of roads
People live just like before
Every night, enjoying the moans under the cover of quietness, caressing each other and themselves,
Despite being exiled to the copse a thousand years ago
Still exist in the souls of the folk
Only names change, but the tale of our century is

One, two,
The light left the forest,
One, two,
The house is now lost
One, two,
Through hope
One, two,
Just like before,
One, two,
Not just a dream,
One, two,
Repeat will again
Track Name: The Train 1702
Dreary forests and lakes passing by
The high-speed train travels swiftly
Flitting landscapes, hundreds and thousands of trees opposite the train wheels
Moving resolutely along the tracks
A deafening whistle can be heard from afar - a freight train on its way

Night is approaches, nothing unusual for the locomotive team
No one paid any attention - all is as always, the train flies breathing steam
While outside the driver's window incredibly bright light dances aflame
A real life nightmare, horror, panic, the locomotive team is aghast

"Out of the way! The train has no driver! Run, save yourselves!"
Through the darkness and tundra travels the ghost train on the tracks,
A thunder is heard in the distance
A bright sphere is dragging the train ahead with an unseen force: technology not known to men

The diagram thrashes, tears, sphere rushes on, piercing darkness like walls,
The lines of chart-recorders will retain the truth:
Gadgets are not people, they don't lie.
Track Name: The Owls
Our path is long and full of hardships
Let stars protect us with their light
Although the trails grows diaphanous in darkness
We will not forget our way
Sun has long set
The silence of the night caught us with its quietness
We traverse our native land
Surrounded by darkness, time nears midnight.
We've been cast out into the fields in winter:
An insane beast, and not a man
The consciousness grows foggy:
It will forever remain in the books
Every little rustle can be heard on the plains
Goddess of wind is adept in her craft
All secret passageways are open
Forest's behind us, the wolf is with us
A raven circles the night sky
And owls cry somewhere
I do not want to, but I have to
Irrigate this soil with blood
The fog has set like smoke on the arable
The dark is wielding omens
But we still go, as it is our will
The hardships are irrelevant
The secrets of un-illuminated haze
Like naked stone and morning dew
The moon is pale, and through its phantom
Illusions of such wonders everywhere
The hour was late, so seeing them
Surprised him. How can this be?
Are these mirages in the fog,
Or might this be true and it's a sign?
The silhouettes scared with their silence
While peacefully floating above the field in the distance
And shyly disappeared behind a slope
Groves of limes joined the illusion
Every little rustle can be heard on the plains
Goddess of wind is adept in her craft
All secret passageways are open
Forest's behind us, the wolf is with us
A raven circles the night sky
And owls cry somewhere
I do not want to, but I have to
Irrigate this soil with blood
Track Name: New World Order
I need a chainsaw and carbohydrates
Retribution? Don't think so.
Stick your hand in a bear cage
Couldn't do it? That's sad.

Family issues?
State department spies behind your back
Estonian occupants, 43 villages
Behind the scenes world never sleeps.

Did you understand nothing?
That's your problem.
I defended my homeland
This is my paradise,
New world order reigns here
This is my paradise
Development path and policy are set

I'll build a paradise, the promised land
Only the ones commanding the world will survive
When the uprisings start, remember my covenants -
New world order of a decent man!
That is all. Houses will cease burning soon.
Someone ratted me out
The last bastion of sanity in this world fell
the enemies are advancing. I have a great plan:
I get into my dear "Volga" auto and ram
Track Name: To Live
When attempting to live,
Accept the anguish
Tearing and hitting
Abrading your hands raw

Throw out the memories
Before it's too late
Eyes on horizon
Where shine the stars

And let the sleeper awaken
Sun greeting him with a smile
Touching him with a bright claw

You'll miss it all
Wake up, don't sleep!
Sharp claw spends days
Gnawing on the spiral of life as best it can

Sentry of own fate
Don't bear the cross
Throw it off your back
Unable to write, giving the order
To sew a million people together
Having fucked control, forcing it in the noose
Jerking the vagina with a steel machine-gun
Having fucked a sister, drinking some ethanol

Unable to write, teaching how to live
Destroying a stranger's life for a career
That's what it is to live.
