Colin M. Hoo boy. Egypt come out swinging with another gritty slab of bluesy stoner doom in what may be their best, most complete offering to date. Favorite track: What Lights This Ocean.

Misfit1969 More of the good! The Ol' School Kiss cover from Hotter than Hell is kool, they were my first record purchase when vinyl was the norm (It was Destroyer). I digress, Egypt does not disappoint. Seems like they stretched out a bit on this one. Favorite track: Cracks and Lines.

Track Name: Final Heist
FINAL HEIST

You've lived a hard life
You're down with you face in the dirt
But it's a long ride
I think it's time that you learned

You keep that dream alive
Its always with you crime after crime
But you don't see the sign
You won't get out alive

If I - Would try
I could blow your mind
That keen eye - You hide behind
Is gonna leave you

You won't make it this time
The stars won't align
I won't find you alive
The stars won't align

This is your final heist
One chance to make it right
I'll tell you one last time
This shit ain't gonna fly

High Crime
Track Name: Cracks and Lines
CRACKS AND LINES

You're evil
You prey on the hearts of man
You are darkness
The Queen of the hidden hand
You're blackened
The night falls at your command
You are silence
The mistress of the damned

You bet your life I can break you
Battered and blind but alive (Chorus)

You're callous
The matriarch of the dead
But I am the reaper
The bringer of the end

Inside - Outside
I don't mind
Whatever - You choose
I'm fine

Chorus x3 (with variations)

It begins
Will you let it in
Absorb the light
The dawn of sight
I see it in your eyes
Become what you despise
Please don't make it hard
Become who you are
Exposing space and time
As only cracks and lines
Question all you feel
Nothing is real
Track Name: Dirge
DIRGE

I see no tears
Through this water
Have I paid
For what you've done
Has time caught up
The cards were drawn
My pin was pulled
Your hammer dropped

They removed the stone
From my chest
And just let me lay there
Like the rest
Bury me deep
Within the trees
Where the ground can whisper
And listen to me

From beyond the coil
Of anger and grief
The endless circle
Will rise up from beneath
In life I drown
In dreams you'll burn alone
Until I come back
And you join me
Track Name: What Lights This Ocean
WHAT LIGHTS THIS OCEAN

Let's break what holds us here
And enter a new light wave
Through the scars of an ancient age
We have new worlds to create

What lights this ocean

The past is still the past
In time we'll change it all
We enter the new light wave
And escape the physical

What lights this ocean
