MoonshineO Odd Logic just get better and better! They always come up with something new and fresh. How each album sounds different is a proof of that. Effigy is the best one they've written! It has everything prog fans could ever ask for : A concept story. Lengthy tracks. Really really amazing vocals and super catchy/memorable vocal melodies. Some growls. Complex song structure and instrumental passages. Heavy,soft and some jazzy moments. Both vintage and modern prog approach. Various moods. Every songs here is very well written and they are all my favourites, but my top three are Witch Runner, Iron Skyline and Memories of Light. One of the best albums of 2017 for sure!

Track Name: Effigy
Here we've come to see you burn, in this pile of stone
Light the sky, the ritual complete again
Embers rise beneath our feet, with vengeful eyes we see
One more day high above your effigy

I've been away for a long long time
Up in the clouds there's a place of mine
From mechanical chairs I watch the show
The spinning of gears keeping time below

Moving around in sunrise red
The things that I've found shouldn't be here yet
Feeling alive in a higher place
Confidence burns at a record pace

Breathing in the power, I remember when
I was bleeding out, losing hope within

[Oh great spirit of the woods] Then the leshy found me
[Change my shape I knew you would] In the woods that night
[Oh great spirit of the woods] Lending power upon me
[Make me king I know you could] Soon I took to flight

To the iron skyline, far beyond my dreams
I controlled the new world, invincible me

High in my chair
I hear them yearn down there
Watching the gears turn

Then I ran into the sun...
Ran right into the sun
Running into the sun, running into the sun, running into the sun...

In that moment I knew it was over, and I realized
How I would be eulogized...

You were the one, the one who would fade the light
You were the one, who only lived here for himself
You were the one, who counted our tears for fun
You were the one, playing the game all by yourself

Is this a dream, move me away from here
Make me whole again, take me away from here
This is a dream now, you thought I couldn't fly again, but you're wrong
Back in my throne again, it's a new day for me

Feeling alive in a higher place, confidence burns at a record pace
Shooting at mountains with finger guns
Stopped in my tracks when I hit the sun

Right into the sun
Ran right into the sun

Pale light comes in like water,
Through cracks in the darkness forming lines across the land
A legend falls around us with a thousand lies
If you listen close you'll hear him crying in the sky

We listen to this great sky
Echoes fall like rain

I thought that I was the only one, in this sky
Nothing around me, not even the sun
The moon had abandoned me for awhile
Once caught a glimpse of that famous smile

Don't you know it's the same sky it's always been
Wouldn't you know you learned that lesson running into the sun

We listen to this great sky
Echoes fall like rain

Bring back the light, bring back the sun, come back home
We see the light, we see the sun

Here we've come to see you burn, in this pile of stone
Light the sky, the ritual complete again
Embers rise beneath our feet, with vengeful eyes we see
One more day high above your effigy
Track Name: Master of the Moor
On the run from the emperor's hand, I've been running too long
I've been coming here for centuries but now I'm a wanted man

Because you saw my face, in the darkened sky
Now you wonder why, I return home

'Cause I wanna be king, I wanna be someone else
Yeah I wanna be king, I'm already on my throne

Way too long, I've been suffering all these years
On this night I watch you by the sea

Because you've seen my face, in the darkened sky
And you wonder why, I return home

'Cause I wanna be king, I wanna be someone else
Yeah I wanna be king, I'm already on my throne

Long ago I walked this shore
Master of the moor, I ruled in silence

You won't be left alone
I'm coming for your home
You'll never be in silence
I'll be there under a cold cold moon

One more whisper from the sky
One more lonely alibi
Chances soon will pass you by
Stone cold sinner

Yeah I wanna be king, I wanna be someone else
Yeah I wanna be king

Yes I'm wanna be, yes I'm gonna be, king

I'm gonna be...king!
Track Name: Mercenary
Welcome to the darkest realm
Tortured masters take the helm

You are here in the room without walls

SHOCK, CONFESS, PAIN
SHAME, CONFESS, SHOCK

So you think you can escape
Ask the sightless men who wait

You are here in the room without walls

SHOCK, CONFESS, PAIN
SHAME, CONFESS, SHOCK

Everyone coils, everyone falls, everyone hears the eagle's call
Everyone runs, everyone here has failed to leave the room without walls

Everyone cuts, everyone cries, everyone lies to stay alive
Everyone bleeds, everyone's holding secrets someone watching needs

Everyone fights, everyone fades, everyone stares me in the face
Everyone turns, everyone learns to know the impact of the burn

Everyone moves, everyone crawls, everyone tries to hide it all
Everyone breaks , everyone holds their hope 'til wide eyes are all gone

Everyone coils, everyone falls, everyone hears the eagle's call
Everyone runs, everyone here has failed to leave the room without walls

Everyone lies, everyone cries, everyone's breaking point I find
Everyone knows, I will be watching, waiting, words are forming,
truths are coming
Track Name: The Yearning
The day of the darkness appeared
As silhouettes we live like ghosts in fear
Who wanders here

How long will we breathe this way
Our future is frozen in time today
Hear us call your way

All this time, all these dreams, buried deep
To the sun, to the sea, the yearning

A plea to the glowing girl we love
We ask you to try a little magic above
It just might be enough
Try oh little one
Hear us call your way
Track Name: Witch Runner
Safe in darkness, lost in silence
Just another girl in a land we cannot see
10 years the light surrounds you, and we ask you to help us believe
You can take it, grab it, the magic, use it to set us free

But you chose to be yourself so the world would never find you
You took the things you loved and found a place to go
You found the witching art and cast the world behind you

And what if I found you, would you cast your spell on me
Would you just hide again, in a moment you'd be free
In darkness again, in blackness
It doesn't matter where you go, anyway

'Cause you chose to be yourself so the world would never find you
You took the things you love and found a place to go
You found the witching art and cast the world behind you

Guilty you will be, if the Mercenary fails
Someone's gonna find you when the fire goes cold
With black eyes of steel and an eagle's call

Find him, end his reign

Once we are gone, you'll never hear the sound
You'll wish you were home where it's safe to cry

You chose to be yourself so the world would never find you
You took the things you love and found a place to go
You found the witching art and cast the world behind you
Track Name: Iron Skyline
On this night we've come to know the empty spaces
In between the night's eyes
Something watching upon our world
We've seen that ancient face
Staring in the night

We reach above the iron skyline
We reach above the iron throne
Untie the sun beyond the unseen light
Break through the armored skyline

The day of the blinding
Never knew black so real
Summoned with power on the other side
Taking over
A creature of sin unseen
Never could see it but it's on the other side

We reach above the iron skyline
We reach above the iron throne
Untie the sun beyond the barrier of light
Break through the armored skyline

First we tried to offer peace
Sending up our first born's ashes in the breeze

Then we found a fabled name
Better known as The Mercenary

He's watching the world
Through his iron skyline
As another gear turns
We all cry at night

We seek the sun
We seek the sun day and night
You know we need the light to come back home
You know we need the light to live

We seek the sun
We seek the sun
Track Name: Memories of Light
Alumbra ya, cuando llegara
Cuando llegara el sol!

No help from the moon, hard to believe it's true
One man shields the light, he changed all our lives
Still we are blind without the light
Getting what we want is only in the sky

Memories of light, memories of light
Once a world of light, fading in to night
Memories of light, memories of light
Memories of light

Mercenary man, can you see beyond sight
Called into the court with all of our lives
Still we are blind without the light
Getting what we want is only in the sky

Memories of light, memories of light
Once a world of light, fading in to night
Memories of light, memories of light
Memories of light

Walking with feel & fright
Searching the lonely night
Virtual blinded eyes
Looking for life & light

Here and gone, the world we know, it's crazy
Here and gone, only afterglow from the dust on the road below
Here and gone, leave the world we know, it's crazy
Here and gone, where's the world we used to know

Pleading, suffering, thoughts colliding
Ominous canopy combination
Blind in silent consternation
Reverence setting in for the demon
Reconciling, regulating
Imminent gathering emigration
Countless silhouettes to the boundary
Yearning for the light again

Memories of light, memories of light
Once a world of light, fading in to night
Memories of light, memories of light
Memories of light
Track Name: Maiden Child
Falling skies and moving spaces
This modern man was on the run

I'm thinking of this life
And life on the way
I am thinking of you

Burning skies and broken gears all around
He'll never know just what you've done

I'm thinking of this life
And life on the way
I am thinking of you

Everywhere she goes, the light follows
Telepathic magic lives inside

We wondered why this little one didn't want to save us anymore
We gave to the ones we loved and all we wanted was something in return

I have the power to move you
Take us to a far away place, she said
but who am I to send you far away

We're thankful for this life
And the lives that you saved
I am thinking of you

Maiden child
Pray to her evermore
Show thine eyes to us child
Oh won't you...
