about

released November 23, 2017 via Snow Wave Records.

Coraxo are:
Tomi Toivonen - vocals, guitar, keyboards
Ville Vistbacka - drums

NO CLEAN SINGING:
"it’s still possible to stumble across an unexpected gem like Sol, which reminds you how easy it is to love this music when it’s done with both energy and conviction."

"Sol is an ideal album for those of you who may have become a little bit jaded and burned out on the familiar Melodeath sound"

METAL TEMPLE: 10/10
"CORAXO are definitely mad, Metal scientists, creating a fragile yet thriving ecosystem of sound. With the same brush that painted a hopeless world of assimilating government, they add color and light makes your heart swell in your chest. “Sol” is truly beautiful and a wonderful follow up to their debut."

GBHBL.COM: 9.5/10
"Simply put, there isn’t a bad track on Sol at all. Sunlight has super catchy melody & Sacrifices delivers stunning heaviness before Spearhead finishes things off with a metal epic. There have been few albums that are as consistently great as this in 2017. Coraxo have delivered an absolute belter here."

POWERMETAL.DE: 8.5/10
"The band definitely got off to a great start and put a sensational work on the shelves with "Sol". Anyone who loves AMORPHIS as but as more pompous, core-skinned Modern Metal should not be long waiting and pay tribute to this epic band as soon as possible!"

Instrumental
Track Name: 02 Of Stars Reborn (feat. Ilkka Ferm)
ONCE IT WAS A PEACEFUL LIFE
THEY TOOK THAT AWAY
IN THE NIGHT THEY CAME TO SLAY
AND INSTILLED US WITH HATE
NOW WE LIVE ON THE ROAD
WITH WHAT WE HAVE
THE RAIN IS SO COLD
I AM DYING

WALKING SEEMS ENDLESS
THE ROAD IS A HARD LIFE
IN THE DISTANCE WE SEE
THE LIGHTS THEY’RE BUILDING

THEIR GLASS TOWERS OVER US
GLEAMING
FORCING TO SHADE OUR EYES
I CURSE THE NAME OF THE FLAME
OF HATE
CAN YOU FEEL
MY SORROW AND PRIDE?
Track Name: 03 Satellite
GAZE AT THE FIRMAMENT
THAT GOVERNS US ALL
THE WIND CALLS MY NAME
A HEATSEEKING MISSILE

TODAY WE’RE GATHERED HERE
TO TRIUMPH OVER THE SEERS
THE POWER OF THE FIRE
OF LIFE
RISES AGAINST THE FLAME
DESCEND INTO THE EARTH
TO RISE AGAIN AS FIERY DARTS
TO STRIKE AT THE WICKEDNESS
BRING TORMENT TO THE ENEMY

UNFAZED BY THE KNOWLEDGE
OF THE REALITY WE LIVE IN
THE WIND CALLS MY NAME
TO THE FIRST RAYS OF THE SUN

WE ARE THE MIGHTY TREE THAT
LIVES IN THE THE EARTH
WHOSE BRANCHES ARE MADE OF
LAMENTATION
Track Name: 04 Helios (feat. Chris Amott & Elena Cor Tauri)
YOUR SHADOW FORCING ME
ESCAPE FROM REALITY
GODSEND, WALLS WILL FALL
ONLY MADNESS RULES
THESE HALLS

FALL FROM UNDER ME
CALL OUT, OUT TO ME
TIME WEARS ME DOWN
YOUR FOOLISH CROWN

FORCED INTO MY HEART
WASTING HUMANITY
THE GHOST OF THEIR WALLS
HERDING ME IN
THE VOID IS CALLING OUT
TO ME
Track Name: 05 Retrograde
JOIN THE EVER GROWING
NUMBERS OF PEOPLE
TAKING ADVANTAGE OF
OUR OFFER
ADVANCED CONSCIOUSNESS
GUARANTEED OR YOUR
MONEY BACK

IS YOUR LIFE FULL OF
EMPTINESS?
DOESN’T YOUR CAREER FILL
THE VOID ANYMORE?
UNHAPPY MARRIAGE
NEEDING SOME SPICE
APPLY NOW

WHY MUST YOU BELIEVE IN ME?
COME CLOSER MY CHILD,
DO NO BE AFRAID
Track Name: 06 Revenants (feat. Elena Cor Tauri)
YOU CANNOT HIDE
I HAVE JUSTICE ON MY SIDE
I’LL BURN YOU TO THE CORE
I BELIEVE IN THE SYSTEM
IT AIN’T PERFECT BUT
IN TIME WE WILL MAKE IT
BETTER

WHY CAN’T YOU SEE
HOW MUCH HAPPINESS
WHY WON’T YOU ACCEPT
THE GREATER GOOD
WHY MUST YOU HIDE

I WILL BE THE NECESSARY EVIL
TO CUT YOU DOWN AND
REMOVE YOU
I’LL BE THE HAND OF JUSTICE
TO CUT YOU DOWN AND
REMOVE YOU
THE KEEPER OF THE FLAME
Track Name: 07 Ascension (feat. Nikke Kuki)
I AM THE THORN IN YOUR SIDE
THE MONSTER UNDER YOUR BED
I AM BECOME THE DISTANT THUNDER
THE STORM INSIDE YOUR HEAD
THE NUCLEAR BURN OF APOLLO THE SUN
LIKE AN ACID BATH I CLEANSE YOU
NOW I ASCEND, I AM THE ONE
THAT WILL SEE THROUGH YOU

ACROSS THE DARK OF THE NIGHT
LIFE ENVELOPED IN LIGHT
LIFT UP YOUR VOICES AND
LET THE CURTAIN FALL
THE STAR OF BABYLON
SHINES OVER THE CARRION
LIFE ENVELOPS ALL
FOREVER AND EVER
WE ARE TOGETHER
CHANGING ONE ANOTHER
INTO THE OTHER
Track Name: Sunlight (feat. Peter Huss & Sebastian Jensen)
NOW I KNOW WHY IT’S CALLED
THE HIGHWAY OF HEAVEN
THE ONLY WAY TO ESCAPE IS TO DIE

THE ENEMY WANTS TO BUILD A ROAD
TO THE SKIES TO LEAVE US
IN THIS DESOLATION

THE RATS RULE THE EARTH NOW
WHEN THEY’RE GONE
CHEAP MOMENT OF VICTORY
TURNS TO DESPAIR

RULE AS THE KING OF NOTHING
IN THE REALM OF WISHES AND
GHOULS

WE’RE REACHING FOR THE HEARTS
IN THE SKIES FOREVER EMPTY
Track Name: 09 Sacrifices Made
RISES UP FROM THE GROUND TO THE SKY
BLACK POOL OF LIQUID VIBRATES THE AIR
OUR SCIENCE CAN’T FIGHT THE COSMIC
TERROR FILLS THE ENTIRE HEMISPHERE

DON’T GET CLOSE TO IT NOW
THE SPREAD OF BLACK BLOOD IN THE EYES
VISIBLE DURING NIGHT TIME
THE FLAME IS EVOLVING
A NEW TYPE OF WEAPON, BIOHAZARD
TURNS THE EARTH INTO A WASTELAND

FALLING UNCONSCIOUS
CAN YOU FEEL IT
THIS IS THE DEATH OF US ALL
CANNOT FIGHT IT
THIS IS THE
SHINING FALL

TO CLIMB A MOUNTAIN WE’RE UNIFIED
IN VAIN
WE STRUGGLE TO CONTAIN THE
MONSTER IN THE VEIL
FALL ASLEEP NOW
NEVER TO RISE AGAIN
Track Name: 10 Spearhead
FORCED TO BEGETTING
UNNERVING BUT FAMILIAR
ABSCIND THE WILL TO BE
STAINLESS STEEL WALLS
FACILITY BUILT FOR
COMPLETION OF THE MACHINE
WOE IS UPON US
A WICKED PALACE OF
LAMENTATION
VIRGIN BIRTH DAWNS
FORNICATE THE NIGHTMARE
FOREVER CALLED UPON ME

FORGOTTEN ABANDONED IN
THE CELL I FEEL
FORLORN, HOPELESS ANGUISHED
STRIPPED OF MYSELF

A NEW DAY DAWNS
GLOOMY GLOW OF THE SUN
IT BRINGS ME NO JOY IN HERE
THE INSANITY BREWS WITHIN
I CAN FEEL IT BURSTING FORTH
I WELCOME THE END
PRAISE THE FLAME
I AM REBORN AS A SPEARHEAD
