Harry Harrison Sweet mother of all things holy! How good is this album from AVER? I apologise to those of you who hate rhetorical questions but, how bloody good is it?!!? Arttu made a spot-on call for it is truly a superb ride. Their first offering was excellent. Could this one be better? I’m thinking it could be. I’m going to have to listen to it for the fifth time tonight just to make sure. (Though I doubt I’ll stop at 5!)

Steve Rodger As much as I have grown to love weird heavy shit I never forget how I got to this point. Aver's album is a perfect illustration of this, Classic stoner riffing and great vocals which will be blasting out the car in the morning as I make my way to work...... Cheers Aver Favorite track: Caduceus.

Track Name: The Devil's Medicine
All I want is eyes that see
All I offer is everything
Take my mind, my skin and bone
As long as this one way trip's my own, yeah

Heart pound, screaming sound
Can't stop the world from spinning round
Self medicate to a better place
The devil's medicine is leading me down
Heart pound, screaming sound
Can't stop the world from spinning round
Self medicate, stop me bleeding
The devil's medicine is leading me down

All I want is wounds that heal
All I need is to feel
Take my pride, take my health
let me bring this on myself, yeah

Heart pound, screaming sound
Can't stop the world from spinning round
Self medicate to a better place
The devil's medicine is leading me down
Heart pound, screaming sound
Can't stop the world from spinning round
Self medicate, stop me bleeding
The devil's medicine is leading me down

Drop and hell seems mundane
Twisting a hole in my brain
I need a reason to breath
Fucking demons in me
Screaming the life is not my own

Drop and hell seems mundane
Twisting a hole in my brain
I need a reason to breath
Fucking demons in me
Screaming I'll never be my own
Track Name: Nest
In the nest you turned my trip
Remind me that the devil exists
He'd be proud of you
Parading
Your colossal opinions
The evolutionary elephant in the room

You only talk about places that aren't here
You only talk about times that aren't now
You only talk about people that aren't you
You only live in a second hand dream

Moving on, across the Rubicon
With a melting sun
Under my tongue
Each twitching revelation
Brains in starvation
The damage is done

You only talk about places that aren't here
You only talk about times that aren't now
You only talk about people that aren't you
You only live in a second hand dream

You only talk about places that aren't here
You only talk about times that aren't now
You only talk about people that aren't you
You only live in a second hand dream
Track Name: Rising Sun
Floor bound and down, sedated through the day
For what it's worth, yeah I wanted it this way
My mind erased, embracing my run
Just let me blaze on the rays of the rising sun

A life of binge, tearing at the seams
I miss the world I made in my dreams
My burning heart, replaced with burning lungs
Just let me blaze on the rays of the rising sun

Let me forget what hell I've known
Let me burn until only ash remains
Tear the hope from my skin and bones
Turn my life into ashen haze

Why should I care if I'm not the chosen one
Yeah I've been worse, but I've only just begun
My resting place, as i wait for hope to come
Just let me blaze on the rays of the rising sun
Rays of the rising...
Rays of the rising...
Rays of the rising...
Rays of the rising sun

Let me forget what hell I've known
Let me burn until only ash remains
Tear the hope from my skin and bones
Turn my life into ashen haze
Track Name: White Lies
Chasing gold
Truth untold
Am I seeking pleasure or just avoiding pain
Giving up
On giving in
Can't stand to behold greater works by younger men
It's high time
An electric tide
Black tar and little white lies
The blood-brain line
Hemispheres divide
My third eye's wandering, looking for an easy ride

Pain numb and gone
Fate led me back home

The fear of holding on
The fear of letting go
The fear of holding on
The fear of letting go

Pain numb and gone
Fate led me back home
Pain numb and gone
Fate led me back home
Track Name: Setting Sun
Doo do doodle dat doot dat doo doo. I dunno, it's instrumental.
Track Name: Caduceus
As our days
Fade away
I feel us falling out of phase
My sullen ways
My turn of phrase
My black lungs lying to your face
And I'm afraid
That if i stayed
Our strained civility would turn to hate
And I can taste
Your burning rage
Something beautiful to throw away

Dear, I see the words falling into place
My cruel pride's ugly face, yeah I'm tempting fate
Dear i see the words falling into place, yeah
We're light years apart, so close from where we came

My disgrace
That secret place
Yet i cant bear to turn away
Am i replaced
I don't feel safe
Spin the barrels
I want to play
And I can change
I can erase
I can burn it all and never leave trace
Bitter embrace
Weather the taste
To be anything but chaste

Dear, I see the words falling into place
My cruel pride's ugly face, yeah I'm tempting fate
Dear I see the words falling into place, yeah
We're light years apart, so close from where we came
Track Name: Promised Lands
Fading light
Like sweet desolation
Endless nights
In loveless meditation
Every beat
Like a hammer in my ribcage
Rice paper skin
I don't think I'll see with age

When all your eyes start to see as one
The the terror of the rudder, the will of thy hand

You've grown
Alone
You've made the most
What's it made of you
The blood
Of my blood
This home
Left its mark on you
You know
It's time to go
These feeble ties
Are restricting you
Promised lands
Shifting sands
See where they're taking you

The moment fades
Welcome back down again
A new day breaks
Broken from the beginning
It calls your name
Tells you that you're staying here
Eternal blame
Living in the eyes of fear

When all your eyes start to see as one
The the terror of the rudder, the will of thy hand

You've grown
Alone
You've made the most
What's it made of you
The blood
Of my blood
This home
Left its mark on you
You know
It's time to go
These feeble ties
Are restricting you
Promised lands
Shifting sands
See where they're taking you
Track Name: Waves
A ruminating simian
A smoking thurible
If it translates the universe
I'll worship a molecule

The pillars and the crucible
An illicit epiphany
If it breaks the chrysanthemum
I'll communion with infinity

Waves
