    A note about the record: do not expect lathe cut records to have the same quality as vinyl records. this record is cut into a clear acrylic material. the grooves are somewhat shallower than standard - sometimes it takes a couple tries to situate the needle correctly - but the records do play.

Stone Breath is not new. It is cracked. Broken. Imperfect. Hidden. Weathered by the seasons.

We sing of ghosts and of forgotten paths through forest and fallow field.

Track Name: Graveflowers
See the flowers open all upon the grave.
See them swaying in the evening breeze.
See the mists are rising like some drifting ghost.
See the clouds are parting to show the silver moon.
Hear the calling voices just like the wind.
Hear the cracking words like fallen leaves.
Hear the creaking of the swinging gate.
Won’t you join them, for the hour’s late.
Track Name: Fire Eyes
You shall see their eyes tonight,
Burning like a flame so bright.
Hear the harrowing cries, in fright.
Do they call for you to see
A thorned and winding path through trees?
Track Name: Pale Passage
It’s time to seek an answer from those who week to hide.
It’s time to ask for just one coin taken from a dead man’s eye.
Let the weak and the worn - let the sad and the torn -
Hear the call of a bright new morn. O the rose shall share it’s thorns...

For the blooms are wet with blood.
O the blooms are wet with blood.
Red the flower, red the thorn,
Red the stem, and red the bud.

And the crows call “murder!” from the black murder of crows.
Tick the clock and arc the scythe. Climb aboard the final boat.
Blood for blood and eye for eye, all under the Leaves of Life.
Blood for blood the cut’s the same by green thorn or silver knife.
Track Name: Beyond the Seventh Gate
Beyond the road.
Beyond the gates.
Beyond the calling horns.
Trees twist and weave -
Above the path
Leaves block the bright sun.
Don’t look behind you.

Go step by step
Into the dark;
Into the unknown.
Hear footsteps fall.
See shadows move.
Don’t look behind you.
Don’t look behind you.
Track Name: Fire Dance
See the little candles
Burning in your eyes -
Burning in the night -
Showing the dark way -
Shadows dance with light.

See the fire jumping;
Calling to your mind.
If you seek you’ll find
Nothing’s quite the same -
Spirits dance with flame.

Listen to the music
Calling from the dark.
See the fire’s mark
Release your desire.
You shall dance with fire.
Track Name: Wolfheart II
And lo the blooms turn into wolves.
And every heart howls in the night.
And every smile is filled with sharp, sharp teeth.
And now we move under the moon
Into the dreams that disturb you
And when you wake, you’ll find us at your feet.
No more to rest, no more to sleep.
Just lie awake in fear and weep.
And what haunts you?
The monsters you have made.
