Acheron 10:21
Waking up under the ground Silver asleep on my tongue I sweep the soil from my eyes And watch the water dance over the stones Presaging river, vanishing dawn Floating away here, in Acheron I wade my way into the river Pulling away from the shore Lingering flashes of memories behind me Echoing out through the fog Presaging river, vanishing dawn Wasting away here, in Acheron Into the river into the beyond
Zephyr 09:25
As you cast off from the shore Hoping for a gentle breeze to push you on You sever from everything you left behind Do you feel alive? Did you think that you would ever get this far? The tide begins to billow up from below Spurs you farther from the bosom of the shore The clouds begin darkening up above You feel a tempest start to grow The wind begins to howl, the thunder starts lumbering in The rain come crashing down, you’re never gonna go back home As the tempest presses on, eating up the sky above You eagerly try to break out of the storm Shadows burgeon overhead, forging lightning bold and red Leaves you clamoring for the refuge of the shore The waves keep crashing down, the water starts to swallow you in You remember what you left behind, you pray the wind will carry you home
Shadows 10:34
This ship is falling apart My hands are ragged and weathered This ship is falling apart I think I’m falling apart I feel my way through the dark I try to sift through the shadows Like pulling blood from a stone Like pulling blood from a stone I’ve been adrift for so long now My bones are littered with rust There’s no horizon to sail to The river’s turning to dust
Cerberus 09:46
I’ve been here before At the end of the world In the quivering mist ‘Neath a towering wall Three sets of eyes, staring back through the fog My feet hit the shore The bones shifting below This odious door Bars my only way home Three sets of eyes, staring back through the fog Guarding the gates, at the foot of the wall Out of the dark a cacophonous sound A foul cry as the beast rises up I wrap my hands around the hilt of the blade As I leap out into the ashes and dust

King Buffalo Rochester, New York

“King Buffalo is a psychedelic trio in the classic format, whose expansive and thunderous music is a powerful concoction of heavy psych, blues, and stoner rock. Texturally rich and oozing with psychedelic goodness, yet honed and driving in the next blink of an eye. Their efforts coupled with their impressive live show, quickly gained them an international audience.” - Sludgelord ... more
