It was 1994 when Erik and 4 other Estonian guys started to make music that ruled the rock music scene and still does, as the album House of Games that was released on the year 94 is rarity and considered an example of professional rock.

The House of Games current material – album Rise and Shine and singel EviI In Needle / Hunter material is innovative, sometimes aggressive, sometimes melodic and mood driven, but always powerful rock, influenced by good, quality rock bands through ages, custom-built to captivate audiences with their energy and quality-soaked music. The members are dedicated songwriters, very talented and innovative subjects determined to create sound of their own.
Their musical and spiritual passion is apparent in lyrical content and physical presence, making the stage more a battery of good energy than a traditional place of simple playing and casual song.

Evil In Needle

Written By: Erik Meremaa/Kalle Vilpuu

Lyrics: Erik Meremaa

What you wanna do
What you wanna do
Liquid in needle
What you wanna do
Do you wish that`s there`s a living proof----in needle?

What you wanna do
What you wanna do
One move is fatal
You gotta run
But your boots seem stick to the glue

Evil In Needle
It`s killing and dragging you down
Evil In Needle
It`s burning you out
There`s Evil In Needle

What you wanna do
When life is blue
Some place in nowhere
What you wanna do
When it rules your life---you are doomed---that`s needle!!!
What you wanna do, almighty you ?
You meet your Judas
What you wanna do
He betrays you in any case soon…

Ave Maria

Written By: Erik Meremaa

Life, I just want to bite my slice-to feel all-right
Empty desert on my side, cause poor man can’t shine
Just mine, I’ve got nickel in my hand, I’m so alive
I feel like cured, but
Wiseman said greed is ocean,
Drowning is the last emotion

Father, please forgive me and tell me where you are, there´ s a problem
I’m in love with greed -so please set me free

Lights, I just want to bite myself to realize
To see the greed is blind
It’s burning inside
Sometimes you work all day you work all night
You´ re the moneymaker
Wiseman said greed is ocean,
Drowning is the last emotion

Father, please forgive me and tell me where you are, there´ s a problem
I’m in love with greed -so please set me free
To see the greed is blind

Father please forgive me and tell me where you are, there´s a problem
I’m in love with greed -so please set me free
