What do people think:

Mindwalk Blvd has created one of the finest recordings of progressive/melodic heavy metal I've heard in some time...some of the most inspired guitar work you'll hear this year.... the music is extremely complex and interesting... it is mind boggling that these guys are only between 13 and 16 years old! Mindwalk Boulevard would have been international superstars in 1980's
Wildy Haskell (Wildy World) 2008 (also chosen as #18 in the top 40 bands for 2008)

...these guys are great.......they have the riffs, and the power.....
Jon Anderson (Yes)

EXCELLENT!!! Great Playin', vocal harmonies, melodies, grooves, great stuff! Sick soloin' in Away & Patriot...!

Lyrics

Crimson Sunset

Written By: Mindwalk blvd

So many questions arise about life about time

And with all that is known and all that is said

I try not to disturb, but only to be heard

The time has come to cast these words from me

And I’ve seen the crimson sunset

shine a thousand times

And I’ve seen the oceans mystique

Tide by tide

And I’ve seen all that’s there to be seen

But I can’t seem to find me

Unquestioned authority

Plotting mind routing crusades

the passion that inspires us

we use to fuel the flame

Just to feel this way Just to feel the same

The time has come to cast these words from me

And take me to a place where I can be

(chorus)

Forever it feels like I’m searching for me

And the stares of the first kind

Condemning me

(chorus)

Beside Me

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

BESIDE ME

Rise against a world uncertain

(I know, you know how can we save this)

Vision torn, distorted truth

(Chase through my world and find some faith here)

Resistance is shattered no matter what we do

(How can I find my way through this)

It’s not too late to show some mercy

(I’ve lost my way I’m just beside me)

Mountains of glory

Shadowed by darkness

Lead astray motives questioned

(I know, you know, how can we save this)

Eyes wide shut, heads turned away

(Chase through my world and find some faith here)

Deception from truth, selfish thoughts bury your soul

(How can I find my way through this)

It’s not too late to show mercy

(I’ve lost my way, I’m just beside me)

Mountains of Glory

Shadowed by Darkness

Follow me down through changes

Realize we’re in peril

Away

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

AWAY

Let them come and find their place

No one will remember

Left alone without a care

Miles away from anywhere

In this veil of light and sky

Bring me to this washed out sight

From this place I thought I knew

You never wanted it as soon

Just take it all

But don’t expect to dodge the fall

Your not too late

And I will never leave you away

The echoes of the night

Make up for the fallen flight

I can’t have you walk away

But I would see it any day


Sometimes

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

SOMETIMES

150,000 Deaths a day
With the tools we made
We can’t set free

Sometimes we always wish for,
What we know to be true
Sometimes we always hope for
What we know to not be abused

This game of life
Will never hold true
Just as long as
We refuse to break through
Give me your guide
Break the truth
Just remember your part of it too

Alone

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

Every time, I close my eyes, I hear the voice of the enemy

So how much deeper will I sink, Before I realize that I have to think
I think it's time that I should hide, but in the darkness they say light will bind, I'll be alone, I'll be alone,
I'd be alone, I'd be alone,

So on this dark and stormy night, maybe I could give you a ride, Maybe it'll work out in the end, but they forgot to tell you I'm already dead,

I'll be alone, I'd be alone,

Every time, I close my eyes, I hear the voice of the enemy

Every time, I close my eyes, I hear the voice of the enemy

I'll be alone, I'd be alone, I'll be alone, I'd be alone

reach

Written By: mindwalk blvd

This groove reminds me of that feeling.
That feeling of ease to just be me
But when it came down to you you let more than just our two voices tell you what to do. Now you're not here.

*I went to you then you knew.
I reached for you and you let go.

Anticipating the sacred sighting of your arrival at my door.
But when it came down to you you let more than just our two voices tell you what to do. now you're not here.

*

I went to you. I reached for you.

Bite My Tongue

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

Does anybody really play by the rules when it's there life on the table right in front of them?
I don't really know what the hell is problem with a man living his life in his way his own customs at hand.

But i learn to bite my tongue till it bleeds.
Don't get used to this. Now the question is how long do I bleed?

There comes a time when we are forced to look in the mirror image of ourselves for what we want.
Line up the pros and the cons and talk to loved ones.
Listen intently despite you don't like what they say

So I learn to bite my tongue till it bleeds.
Don't get used to this. Now the question is how long do i bleed?

I spin round in my head.
I find in my head I'm breaking free

Calculate

Written By: Mindwalk Blvd

Staring behind a wall of glass
Your life in front of your eyes
Self-absorbent, shallow self
Endless days wondering why
Selfish, cruel, think the world owes you

Open your eyes and decide
who you wanna be
What's killing you is killing me
You're lost inside your memories

Isolation, you separate yourself from
the world
Invisible
You put on a smile but you don't care.

Taking but never giving
Heartless and calculated through

Open your eyes and decide
Who you wanna be
What's killing you is killing me
You're lost inside the memories

Never thought it would get this far
It's too late now
You never ever were my friend
Even when I stuck by you

Open your eyes and decide
Who you wanna be
What's killing you is killing me
You're lost inside your memories
