Max Malmer A great album FFO High and Fire and Kylesa! Lots of heavy and fuzzy riffs with roaring vocals. Favorite track: March Of The Ancient Queen.

Colin M. My initial impression is that I like "II" even better than their debut. Time and repeated listens will tell but what is for sure is that this rocks. Favorite track: Dark Side Of The Earth.

Bucky A substantial output of colossal fuzz and down-tuned thrashy tone set to a conceptually manic motif. Absolutely crushing in every sense of the word. Imagine Slayer and Kyuss joined forces to tour the apocalyptic remains of planet fuzz!

Screaming from the sky Blasting through the atmosphere Come to rest On the forest floor Still alive What fresh new hell is this? Surrounded by swamps A strange bleeding from the earth Giant trees A dense horror taking root Same old sun Unfamiliar rays shine down
3.
Spinosaurus 03:47
From out through the trees A one track mind Giant teeth glisten Air thick with blood Ancient jaws Reanimated How can this be? Strange reality Teeth into flesh Is this our earth? No time to dwell Dorsal sail cutting air Cretaceous ghost made flesh Staring into Dead end eyes No place to hide Theropodic annihilation Teeth into flesh
4.
Thundering hooves crack the sky Dark robed wizards appear in the light Travellers in ether descending Protectors of the realm By oath bound eternal Searching through aeons Divine prophecy Even death may die Interdimensional templars arise Ancient king haunting a new world Once more into the fray Antlers clash with steel The hour draws near The endgame is nigh Divine prophecy Even death may die
5.
Angel Eyes 04:22
The rider wearing black Return from the plains Heed the call Rise from the shadows Hooves of burning coal Let loose upon the world Heavenly gaze Order through chaos He is summoned once again To lay waste the earth A lifetime of war Death and destruction Return of the warlord Eternal fire scorche the earth Heavenly gaze Order through chaos
6.
Her royal blood Once ruled these lands Generations Buried by time Dynasty of dust Rise from the sands Rise from the dead The Green Kings servant March! Ancient vanity Can't allow to kneel Rebellious mind Wield the blade Marching to war Reclaim her crown Destined to fail And fade back in to time March!
7.
Temple walls tower Through millenia Withstanding time Unnaturally Stone roots unknown Shapes without sense Horror coming down Truth settles in Bleeding the void Since before man began Unholy worship Feed the Green King Eyes pryed open Sanity stripped away Truth settles in Truth that is sin
8.
A bastard version of the earth Distortion overtakes the mind Ancient nightmares rule supreme The old gods made anew We must go back, set it right We must go back, whence we came The horror now, all too real The dark side of the earth Dimension walls broken down The fabric ripped and torn apart Thread the needle once again A journey of ten thousand years We must go back, set it right We must go back, through the tears Insanity the only way The dark side of the earth

about

"II"
After narrowly escaping the confines of the strange planet and its surrounding dimension, the "Albatross" and its crew finally returns home to Earth. The re-entry is rough and the ship crashlands in a forest. The earth that greets them is vastly different from the one that they left.
When the ship travelled back to earth through the wormhole it created a rift in the space-time continuum which propelled them far into the future as well as allowing the Green King and other ancient gods from the other dimension to cross over to our dimension. They have since taken control of not just the earth, but the entire solar system.
After various harrowing experiences and encounters, the truth finally dawns on the surviving members of the crew. They are indeed back on earth, but ten thousand years in the future from when they started their journey. And to make matters worse, they find evidence that the Green King have been known and worshipped by secret cults and societies on earth for millenia, since before what we today know as humankind even existed.
The surviving members of the crew come to the conclusion that the only way to set things right again is to repair the "Albatross" and take it back through the rift again in order to close it.
