Far far away A promised land A paradise beyond Onto the past A walking shape Searchin' for hearts gold Between the pillars A door so bright Blocking the mans path Open the gates I'll kneel down for the king In this world of flames I will grow in sin The man begins to cry This iron door in front His duty isn't paid A shine begins to rise A fear strikes into him slowly he percieves Oh no! He dwells in pain A brokes soul In Hell he would be free Open the gates I'll kneel down for the king In this world of flames I will grow in sin Oh Hell! Open the gates Hey! Open the gates! Open the gates, Oh please! Let me in! Come on! Open the gates!

Higher Power 04:34
The earth is shakin, this higher power Walkin' through the witching hour This inner bloom is becoming winter Inner unrest, time to splinter Higher Power - Please set me free Higher Power - C'mon let me see Higher Power Down to the knees Fruits of lividity give me a bite Behind these shadows, a kingdom to hide This inner rest is becoming storm This earthly vibrations, welcome dawn Higher Power - Please set me free Higher Power - C'mon let me see Higher Power Down to the knees

Hellflight 04:01
A sun dries out tonight Evil's lurking on the edge Kissing demons, make me proud We are howling at the moon There is no turning back Tonight, it's our night - Hellflight Our hands release their streams Energy is running cold Our hearts release their warmth Our minds break into dust Souls burning away Our love will everlast Hellflight - We come tonight Life is out of sight Hellflight - We burn bright There's no need to fight! Hellflight Our bodies fallin' down Into unlightened pits Our hands touching each other Our eyes become blind "We" will be eternal! Our tongues bleeding out Hellflight - We come tonight Life is out of sight Hellflight - We burn bright There's no need to fight! Hellflight Hellflight We leave tonight Hellflight

Cosmic Gaze 04:48
The blackness of night Lunars fate Another crimson light An infernal estate These longest roads Of nothing at all This absolut cold Of infinite walls Cosmic Gaze - Surrender my soul Cosmic Gaze - Into the black hole Into the black hole... Into the cosmos! A shine in the distance Another born star A meteors wreckage Is fallin' so far These highest hills Of fluorescent sky An unending deep A place to die Cosmic Gaze - Surrender my soul Cosmic Gaze - Into the black hole

A new Start - A rocket aims To another star This planet seems so dead Onwards to shadows Into criminal source Let us aim the moon Why not? We got the force A new place!? Prophecy of doom. To the stars - Subliminal lights To the stars - Keep ready to fight Oh, to the stars A hunger - A rocket seeks Oh, beautiful new planet Onwards to shadows ...into the sun! To the stars - Subliminal lights To the stars - Keep ready to fight Oh, Hell! To the stars - Subliminal lights To the stars - Keep ready to fight To the stars - Infinite grey To the stars - An eternal slay

Another night in this city Wild emotions growing on Fading pictures - All insane No state would be pretty Society to more than none May 8th, '45 - Live instead! We are Black Knights Black Knights - Movin' on Black Knights - Within society Black Knights Black Knights - We come along Black Knights - To wrench this imbecility Another solstice is written Sentiments on the run Screaming violence in the air Anarchy is driving us! No quarter to be strong No place for you, to call "Home" We are Black Knights Black Knights - Movin' on Black Knights - Within society Black Knights Black Knights - We come along Black Knights - To wrench this imbecility Another human is battered 'Cause of color or origin Unending grudge in our hearts We are all the same! Equality! No borders, can't you see? March away and perish! We are Black Knights Black Knights - Movin' on Black Knights - Within society Black Knights Black Knights - We come along Black Knights - To wrench this imbecility We are Black Knights!

Mooncrusher 04:56
Beneath the tyrant stars I will keep this secret alive Through these unholy scars Into the the night I will dive Beneath this gruesome ground I will stay and I will fail Through these shattered wounds Into the night I will sail I am a mooncrusher Burning this soul away I am a mooncrusher On and on To the nightsky I sail Mooncrusher Between these unborn shadows I will break my heartless mind Throughout a fallen hollow No more be a human kind Through all these wasted threads Into the night I am the dawn I am a mooncrusher Burning this soul away I am a mooncrusher On and on To the nightsky I sail Mooncrusher

Mistress 04:44
Walking through shadows A broken mind in the night On a path of oblivion Appears a stunning light Beyond final salvation A being, oh so well The broken mind explodes And pushes her to Hell Mistress of evil Guide me through the night Beauty of darkness Show me your might Mistress of evil Take me to ritual Beauty of darkness Release your blackened spell Mistress of evil Show me your might! Journeys through fears With her, all will be fine On shadows path together Drinking poisoned wine Beyond final conflation The being, she gets lost A broken mind dissolves The darkness – old new host Mistress of evil Guide me through the night Beauty of darkness Show me your might Mistress of evil Take me to ritual Beauty of darkness Release your blackened spell Come on, Mistress of evil

Earth Crisis 05:54
Hey you! Listen to me! What are you doing, can't you see? This planet burns Why you don't Stop to this earth? Gaia gave birth to you And you cruel mankind What do you do? This fire burns and war is on I can't control myself Oh no! Earth Crisis Earth Crisis Crisis Oh please! Stop this war! Tanks are rollin' Religions win State control and unrestless sins Money talks and money takes All what we are here for The victims cries are unheard This conflict storm Is unearthed So please here me and take a look And stop this endless crime Earth Crisis Earth Crisis Crisis Oh please! Stop this war! Crisis Earth Crisis, Oh no! Crisis Earth Crisis Oh please! Stop this war!

about

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Germany’s TENSION, Decay, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from Leipzig, Germany’s TENSION was founded in 2015 by vocalist Maik H. and guitarist Phil. M. during a night of dozens of heavy metal records and unlimited amounts of beer. The band was then rounded out by ex-members of Toxic Beast and Germany’s Prowler.

From the beginning, TENSION’s influences were firm: the First Wave of Swedish Heavy Metal (or FWOSWHM), including the likes of Gotham City, Heavy Load, Jackwave, Parasite, Jonah Quizz, Depzon, and Stitch among others; the always-eternal NWOBHM, but particularly Satan, Traitors Gate, Wolf, Ritual, and Lime Light; heavy metal from the Eastern Bloc like Aria, Ossian, Formel I, Omen, and Pokolgép; and different kinds of punk music, but most prominently The Misfits and Discharge. In other words, the PERFECT type of band for DYING VICTIMS – and not surprisingly, TENSION released their self-titled debut EP through the label in 2017. Gigs followed with the esteemed likes of Manilla Road, Satan, Pagan Altar, Tokyo Blade, and Alien Force among others.

Now, nearly five years since the Tension short-length, TENSION unleash their debut album, Decay. Right from its very first seconds, Decay sparkles with an excitement that’s absolutely addicting and endearingly timeless, running through a virtual jukebox of Old but brimming with the effervescence of Now. It’s pure heavy metal, through and through, with juiced-up hard rock and moody punk subtly integrated, and the power is always in abundance but never overbearing; TENSION’s cool & cruising momentum harkens to a lost era of feel over sheer speed. At the fore are nightsky-ascending lead guitars, whose narrative melodies straddle a fine line between metal classicism and something closer to dark hard rock. And Maik’s clear ‘n’ emotive vocals bespeak bathos and pathos, bravado but tenderness, epic adventures as well as long nights at the bar.

The cassette and CD versions of Decay will include nine tracks, with the self-titled EP added to the latter as bonus tracks. The vinyl version of the album will include eight tracks due to length, with the extra track saved for a split EP to be released later in 2022. In the meantime, no better time to experience the “Higher Power” of TENSION’s Decay!
