Needles And Sins Nope...not regretting this #belatedbandcampfriday purchase one iota. 🙂 The album is lovely, and possibly even a tad better than the debut - it's grittier in the hidden corners, and some of the remixes are seriously brilliant as well. ❤ Favorite track: The End of Time.

Sten J. Pettersen Where to begin with this album? Do I start with the incredible opening? The sense of doom in End of Time? The tour de force that is Onyx? The gloriously simple, yet complex Red Planet? Or the remixes, which are worthy of a chapter all to themselves?

I'll just say this: This is probably my all time favourite non-metal album. Give it a listen. You won't regret it. Favorite track: The End of Time.

Phoenix 04:34
From the ashes you will rise From the ashes you will rise You are Phoenix You are Phoenix You are Phoenix Halo of fire falls from the sky Burning a thousand sins, purified Freed from captivity, shake off the demons of unreason Child of fire born again Like fire from the Sun, in bursts of flames the Phoenix dies But life has only just begun, from the ashes you will rise You are Phoenix You are Phoenix You are Phoenix Another life begins sanctified Freed from a thousand sins that have died Fear no uncertainty, anxiety or unbelievers Spread wings of fire, born again Like fire from the Sun, in bursts of flames the Phoenix dies But life has only just begun, from the ashes you will rise You are Phoenix You are Phoenix You are Phoenix Like fire from the Sun, in bursts of flames the Phoenix dies But life has only just begun, from the ashes you will rise From the ashes you will rise From the ashes you will rise You are Phoenix

A consequence of technology Colliding head on into disgraced humanity Sometimes it’s wrong, sometimes it’s right Constantly torn between the Darkness and the Light Enemies raging behind my eyes Shadows caress me while whispering their lies Hell calls my name as the Heavens cry I don’t know what to do so I keep praying for the end of time See the world through eyes of coal, this sprawling wasteland of my soul A mind of darkness, heart of light. I am Onyx, black and white Save me from this paradigm, save me from the end of time

Onyx 03:46
Fires rise from burning shells of what once used to be On cobalt streets temptation sparks like electricity Born of man and of machine, these two worlds hybridize Truth and lie, amplify and rage behind my eyes Agony, Wrong and right All I see, Black and white Calling me, Dark and Light Who’s the enemy? Seen by the unforeseen The pressure building in between Can someone help me choose between The Darkness and the Light

about

The highly anticipated follow-up to Scandroid’s first two albums is here! The Darkness is Scandroid like you’ve never heard him before, as the artist unleashes his dark side across six brand new tracks. Never content to rest on what he’s already accomplished, Klayton, the mastermind behind the project, has driven his music into uncharted territory on The Darkness and given every song its own distinctive identity. From the old school heavy metal riffs of "Phoenix" to the ominous cybersynth tone of "Red Planet" and "Out of the Darkness," each entry will pull you deeper into Scandroid’s darkly cybernetic world.

In addition to the six original tracks, Scandroid has packed The Darkness with electrifying remixes from some of the most talented and innovative artists in and around synthwave today. Even better, this new release is just the start of Scandroid’s latest creative opus, The Darkness and The Light. Fans will be able to immerse themselves in the second half, The Light, in 2019, with a complete full-length release to follow.

The journey through The Darkness and The Light begins right here.
