Lute FP Been spinning this for a week and I still don't know how to describe it. Progressive in its approach to songwriting and pacing, with a very 70s rock styling. But something just makes this stand out as its own thing and I can't put my finger on it, but I am totally digging it.

about

"The Mountain of Fate" is the first concept album of the italian progressive-duo Oberon. The concept is based on the most famous greek myths, re-evaluated in a modern way: every feeling and every meaning from these stories revolves around the Mount Olympus, a symbol of extreme negativity (if it regarded as an obstacle) or great positivity (like a sort of liberation from all evil, once reached the top). It's a journey of meditation through issues such as greed, the search of the impossible, freedom, narcissism, hate, war, Spleen and many more induced by the nowadays society.
Self-produced; we have chosen a dark old school mix to give a seventies touch to the songs.


The Climb to the Mountain Begins.

Track Name: The Golden King
In a big mansion
surrounded by wealth
lived a king called Mida


For entire nights
He drowned in wine
He craved all the time


But in the woods one day
The god of nature found him
promising him power and gold
all to realize his dream
Anything he touched
Turned into gold


The golden King
deceived by his greed
forever alone
no more desire to feed


In vain he implored the god
crying for many days
sitting on his wicked throne
but no one came in his aid


He melted with his castle
Sinking in his lust
and before the new dawn
everything had became dust
Track Name: Evil Box
You’ve been created
to satisfy the gods
to ruin the mankind
and all this world
Beneath his sight
You betrayed his trust
Opening the evil box
the day became night
nothing was the same
just a human shame

As you lifted the lid
dark spirits came out
throwing the human race
in a age of pain and shouts

As you lifted the lid
dark spirits came out
throwing the human race
in a age of pain and shouts
Track Name: Icarus on Broken Wings
A piece of mind has fallen
words of pain have gone
and you have flown so high
the rays have taken down my son

Trapped in silver wings
he crossed the silent sky
while the sun cut the wind
falling in the sea,he died

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

He touched the infinite
while he was insane
but it was all an illusion
it was all in vain

his face buried by hope
his eyes faded away
to the power of the sun
he was taken away

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

blinded by his ego
immersed in his own lies
he felt eternal
standing out its last flight

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine

Too high and too fast
he embraced the dawn
Icarus on broken wings
He would never shine
Track Name: Sailing Oblivion
Castaway of my thoughts

banned in endless seas

all around the great void

loneliness you are with me

the beginning of the end
Track Name: A Fair Traitor
I climbed the mountain
before it was time
searching for the forbidden
that held us trapped behind
making us fool and blind
they used to forge our fears
so I picked their mortal tears
Crossing the eternal paths
and when the sun went down
I dared to face their wrath

I stole their secret
provoking his hate
I saved the mankind
but I changed my fate
I stole their secret
provoking his hate
I saved the mankind
but I changed my fate

leaden skies upon me
a sense of sadness
that bring me to madness
Trapped in this haze
My world is ablaze
caged on this storm
I still haven’t made return
Bound at this rock
Digging inside me
Fading too slowly
I’m no longer free

I stole their secret
provoking his hate
I saved the mankind
but I changed my fate
I stole their secret
provoking his hate
I saved the mankind
but I changed my fate
Track Name: Somniloquist
lying on his thoughts
a young man disowned themself
rejecting all the world
craving even more
embodied perfection
layed down on the edge
looking at his own reflection
and then he forgets

living the dream
just isolating him
what did It mean?

he forgot the world
he forgot the time
watching his face
in a state of grace

And in the deep night
he killed all the light

but when he tried to speak
with his own reflex
he realized to be mortal
a piece of human flesh
he didn't understand
so he tried to touch his hand
seized with a sense of fear
struck the water and disappeared
confused he wept for long
without name that belonged
he walked for many days
without knowing his race
it became a torment
madness killed his mind


living the dream
just isolating him
what did It mean?

he forgot the world
he forgot the time
watching his face
in a state of grace

And in the deep night
he killed all the light
Track Name: The Wicked Groom
Close your eyes
and feel the darkness
disown your soul
fear my words
and so in this night
I’ll tame your life
in the depths of this gloom
join your wicked groom

mocked by her faith
trapped in this game
the love and the hate
would be the same
the love and the hate
would be the same

mocked by her faith
trapped in this game
the love and the hate
would be the same
Track Name: Inheritance: I. Blank Eyes; II. Falling Asleep; III. Dies Irae; IV. Inheritance
Everything has changed
Wars rage on
The hunger for power
Have ruined this world

Fathers have spoken
Words dissolved in wind
The greed enslaves
Every human breath

Up there the crimson sky
Seems to be died
It was the desire
To feed your own lies

They fought for hypocrisy
With swords and knives
But the pain's still written
On your blank eyes

The courage belongs to past
You live a whole life
Just pray your gods
And thanks mankind

Inheritance of gods
this wasted land
will be destroyed
hand by hand
