Guilherme Müller Absolutely LOVE this album. I love these kinds os soundscapes where it seems like you are drifting into space. Perfect for my work (programming). Can't have enough of this kind of "space-prog". I'm also a keyboard player, so it's a must have for me. Now, to listen to it in WAV! Favorite track: Into The Sun.

Stéphane Gallay Pour utiliser une formule classique, il y a le bon rétro-progressif et le mauvais rétro-progressif. Le bon, c’est celui que j’aime bien et ce New World est un album que j’aime beaucoup. Il a ses côtés agaçants, ceux qui font qu’on ne sait pas trop si on est dans le domaine de l’hommage élaboré ou du pastiche pur et simple, mais il est très enthousiasmant. Favorite track: Into The Sun.

kadees “New World” ist ein wirklich gutes Album.
“Stranded pt. 1-5″ z.B. klingt als ob Pink Floyd und Genesis zu ihren besten Zeiten zusammen im Studio gewesen wären – kein Wunder: Steve Hackett an der Gitarre und Durga McBroom als Background-Sängerin.
Bei “Crossing Of Fates” mischen Billy Sherwood (Yes), Keith Emerson und Simon Phillips (Toto) mit.
(February 13, 2015) Favorite track: Crossing Of Fates.

Ian Williams Bought this yesterday from bandcamp. Great album. Really enjoying it. Well done. Will look out for tours and future releases. By the way I'm glad you choose bandcamp, gives me the chance to listen first and then buy lossless.

German Fafian Luego de varias escuchas, este disco me ha dejado un buen sabor de boca.
Es una mezcla entre Pink Floyd, The Beatles y Sound OF Contact. Hay partes en las que la influencia de Richard Wright brilla fantásticamente y no solo en la forma de tocar y de escoger las notas a tocar, si no tambien en la forma melodiosa de cantar del Sr. Kezner.
Una muy agradable sorpresa para este final de 2014. Altamente recomendado Favorite track: Stranded (Part 1-5).

Stranded (Part 1-5) (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) Sudden isolation A lone forgotten name The wind will blow the dust of greed and shame Stranded in a wasteland Won’t be crawling back We have to face the void for what we lack A wave of evolution moves across the sand All will be forgiven, only some will understand I am not your conscience I am not your trash You gravely made the trade for petty cash A lie with no repentance A waiting loaded gun Poised to end the game with anyone A wave of evolution moves across the sand All will be forgiven, only some will understand Once the leaves of trees are gone, with nothing left to smile upon We’ll trace our steps back to the dawn of what is right and wrong Miles beyond the blinding sun I go No water in sight Just follow the light and pray for the night The Earth, the moon and stars align The truth behind façades will shine Quickly shifting paradigm reveals the source sublime Appearing in the distance Subtle signs of life I’ll have to save the strength for another flight A wave of evolution moves across the sand All will be forgiven, only some will understand Once the leaves of trees are gone, with nothing left to smile upon we’ll trace our steps back to the dawn of what is right and wrong Watching evading the words so degrading the stabs in the back to the start where we are not the sheep nor the shepherd to keep from the leopard who eats out your heart and then takes on the part of the bringer of light and the breaker of dreams lost in the ego’s impossible schemes fuel for the weak becomes paralyzed in paradise multiple deception and gross misconception of rat-like impostors who feed on their own up to what you have done and the seeds you have sown in the darkness of hiding the truth that you’ve known the fearful believers will sink like a stone Follow the light Pray for the night

Into The Sun 07:20
Into The Sun (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) You put your desires in motion You took on the risk of the flight Knowing certain danger awaits Ignoring the flaws of your plight It’s not right All systems were go for the mission All signals inviting the quest Passion goes into orbit Fueled by the fire in your chest It’s not right Into the sun Far away from everyone You flew too close for what it’s worth And you crashed down to Earth The shimmer of blistering starlight Beaming its glamorous eyes You fell for its warm seductive power Only to be eclipsed by its pending demise So unwise Into the sun So far away from everyone You knew full well that you would burn Brace yourself for impact Heat shield giving way Quickly losing contact Transmission ends today Breaking up in pieces Hearts disintegrate
3.
The Lie 05:03
The Lie (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) Stories told that slowly came apart Following the pulse of a loveless heart You cannot win the shady game you’ve played You hide behind the door in the bed you’ve made Fabricated tales for your sharade A misguided lost crusade You, you can’t escape the lie No matter how hard you try The future will reveal the reasons why You poorly chose to lie As you’re walking toward the ledge You feel a coldness closer to the edge Never looking back at what you’ve said Never thinking how it might be read Someday you will slip up and be shown Beside the guilt you own You, you can’t escape the lie No matter how hard you try The future will reveal the reasons why You poorly chose to lie
4.
Under Control (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) Like a needle extracting the source A promise given taken by force Your moving finger sculpting my mind Led to believe and follow you blind Seeds of deceit planted under the skin A hidden chip designed to steal from within Breaking my will so you can play with your toy Distorted pleasure from the hope you destroy I am under control I am under control I feel your hands on my soul I am under control Got a fever, sweating it out Vultures waiting in the shadows of doubt At any moment the tables will turn For now I run while the bridges burn I look for shelter from the storming skies Avoid the watchers with their roving eyes Escape the trance that held my feet to the ground Break away to where I’ll never be found I am under control I am under control I feel your hands on my soul I am under control All of this time in crime I played the quiet fool For all that I am, it’s impossibly cruel All of what’s mine designed to make a better you To make a better you I am under control I am under control I feel your hands on my soul I am under control

My Old Friend (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) Hello, my old friend From the other side of the end You’ve come to visit me again Poetic license to pretend Hello, to the shape unknown Waiting dauntless on my own Bare and fragile flesh and bone I am eager to be shown Give me reason, give me art Unearthly wisdom you impart Crossing over, shaking hands With someone who understands Hello, my old friend From the other side of the end We both took that drive To an unexpected curve With hollow people Who’ve got a lot of nerve Restrained what we deserve In a cloud you observe Give me reason, give me art Unearthly wisdom you impart Crossing over, shaking hands With someone who understands Give me courage, give me grace Spin the dogma that I face I am tuning to the signs Etching truth in cosmic lines So long, my old friend One day we shall meet again
7.
Ocean of Stars (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner) Drifting in an ocean of stars Missing you and all that was ours I travel to the waters that glow To dive into the realm we know It’s hard to fathom what we choose Someone has to win or lose Another life a different fate In this one it’s too late Immortalized within a song Shattered rhymes and words unveiled Now I’m back where I belong We can’t deny this ship has sailed Drifting in an ocean of stars… Picturing your crystal face A vision I cannot erase Misfortune took the magic away Nothing I could do or say One of these days you’ll know I never meant to let you go If only you and I could be whole We’d get back what they stole Immortalized within a song Shattered rhymes and words unveiled Now I’m back where I belong We can’t deny this ship has sailed Drifting in an ocean of stars Missing you and all that was ours Don’t know if I’ll see you again But we’ll be alright in the end

Solitude 03:40

Nothing 06:15
Nothing (Words by Dave Kerzner ; Music by Dave Kerzner & Fernando Perdomo) I thought we had it all Just illusion Then you dropped the ball Big confusion Words don’t mean a thing Just distraction The phone no longer rings A sad abstraction All I need from you is nothing Yeah nothing at all Schemers pay the price Instant karma Smacked down from a vice Terra firma Enjoy your power trip Your delusion I’m off this sinking ship My revolution All I need from you is nothing Yeah nothing at all I will let you leave without a sound Get off this merry go ‘round In your twisted world You’re high above me But, you’re just a frozen girl Who cannot love me All I need from you is nothing Yeah nothing at all
10.
New World 05:57
New World (Words and Music by Dave Kerzner Too many people Counting up their change Inviting insanity in a world so strange All that we are Recording the memories With cameras in our eyes A fraction of reality And the magic moment dies All that we are What we have we borrow Possessions in the mind Yesterday we plan tomorrow And leave today behind If you and I would see The power that’s within A new world we create could begin In the kingdom of society We’re all ruled by the clock Consumed by our anxiety We march instead of walk All that we are We hold the answer inside we know Obscured by imposed beliefs till we let them go
11.
Redemption (Stranded Part 6-10) (Words by Dave Kerzner ; Music by Dave Kerzner & Francis Dunnery) A storm of frantic changes taking place Molecules are glowing The energy exploding into space The field that held me in suspension left to feed on your disgrace I scan across the desert with new eyes Intercepting signals crossing yeah Enemies are trapped in their disguise Unwinding clock revealing the mask of lies The cold machines are lurking in a pack The echoes of their marching Calling me to face them on this track Inner peace and sanity is fleeting in the race to get it back The stars and oceans Fade into the sun I shook the garden spell Melding back to one It’s nearly over now Now that I’ve come this far The quality of how we are All have had their role to play What’s the meaning who can say? Climbing over hills of blame Determined lone forgotton name The wave of evolution came I’m coming back to stake my claim All the talk All the fear All the questions disappear Past the pain Around the bend Just what matters in the end All is right All will thrive All it means to be alive And the truth somehow survives I see my part so clearly now From the stage, a final bow All those years of learning how Holding on through the day and the night We’ll make it to the light To the light
