Aklas Dievas žiūri į tave. Lion runs in the kingdom of gold The Blind God is looking upon you. Behind the plain Hidden in light With water she waits Suspended in time. Up in the mountains Deserted by her company She still carries her tune She is the Key. The lightning hits The song suddenly ends She is mesmerized She goes into trance. Deep in the forest Out of the rhyme She is taken away To the base of Infinite Time. Classified.

The past mistake Repeated over And over again It’s nobody’s fault. Drinking the blood of the damned Will make you forget everything Passive aggression Receding to nothingness. Fear not little angel Those ugly devils won’t harm you Those scary beasts won’t touch you ‘Cause evil’s not them. Do fear little devil Those perfect angels will skin you alive Do fear little devil ‘Cause perfection is cold and cruel. Art for cruelty’s sake In the wake of massacre The time has Stopped. Carrying the missing piece Of the puzzle No one shall like The outcome. You shall never Know her name But she is Death.

Of the sun and the moon Of the stars and the earth The sentence had been written on the glass And it is never to be guessed. The hangman’s eyes are gleaming in the dark Forest’s secret well kept Weary traveler will learn it tomorrow Quarter past noon. Make it sharp. He’s not searching for anything Just trying to lose the past Cannot change a thing Just wants his amnesia to last. He never liked her song Yet he would gladly die For the girl to sing Just one more time So his god turned out to be the Devil Never really bothered him much Didn’t change his routine Yet he would sell his soul to bring her back. And his trip has no end And he is willing to die To hear the tune Just one more time.

Walking by the railroad Looking for the train Following the track It is about to rain. Haunted by the memory Of the one you couldn't save. Smoking on the platform Thinking of the one Of the time when all was lost And what could’ve been done. Haunted by the memory Of the one you couldn't save. Standing on the platform Waiting for the train Standing on the platform In the pouring rain. You almost recall the face On the day of the final game Her tune still rings in your ears But you can't remember her name. Standing on the platform Thinking of the one In the pouring rain Contemplating the run. This train will take you To the end of the track To the station of Infinity Falls Where water waits Rusty bell tolls. You shall find her there Behind the misty plain Just hold your breath Reach deep inside And you shall remember her name. Water waits On the Falls of Infinity You hold her name You have the key Now call it out loud And she will set herself free.

Water waits On the falls Of infinity. Girl's asleep In the eye Of time. Escaping the kingdom tomorrow Reclaiming her fate From the idle hands Of the Blind God. Vanduo laukia Ant amžinybės krioklių. Security breach In the Infinite time. She heard her name She takes a deep breath The shackles break Sleeping water falls And the dam cracks. She stands as herself Back to what she is Reclaiming her fate Redeeming her faith. The limbo ends From the idle hands Of the Blind God She breaks away. She breaks away From the idle hands of the Blind God She breaks away And she is never coming back.

about

MOUNTAINSIDE is back with the new album! It is hard to believe, but five years have passed since Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish, and Short was released in 2013. The new one is called Hidden In Light.
This time the band came up with what can be called a concept album. Musically all tracks are composed as the parts of a singular composition. And are united by the linear narrative. Constructed as a loose script for the alegoric sci-fi/fantasy road mistery, lyrics deal with rather archetypal topics of deceit, betrayal, guilt, quest, redemption and liberation.
If previous MOUNTAINSIDE album, the Hobbesian Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish, and Short was sludgey doomy metal affair, with some proggy and psychedelic overtones, on Hidden In Light psychedelic is very prominent and though the sound remains in the metal territory, the influences from postpunk and prog (or art rock) are even more pronounced.
The CD is again (as All About Time in 2007) released by Zona Music. Established in early 1991 in Vilnius, as Zona Records, it was the first legal indie label in Eastern Europe.
The tracking was done over period from 2010 to 2017 by Karolis Klimaitis and Laurynas Baškys at Megasonus and Lapes Records studios.
Album was mixed by the revered Latvian soundengineer Girts Laumanis (TESA, SOUNDARCADE INOKENTIJS MARPLS, etc.) at his Hodila Records studio in Valmiera.
