Noble cyborg savage This record kicks ass! Like Slough Feg had a baby with The Sword. A breath of fresh air on the doom landscape! Favorite track: Ambush at Antarox IV.

JD Quenzer Definitely one of my favourite album releases of 2015. It is "Psy-Fi Metal" as These Hands Conspire call it and I agree - it IS out of this world; taking the listener to places beyond Earth's atmosphere with a stellar concept expressed perfectly through astronomical riffs, rocket-booster rumbling drums and bass and superb, classic rock vocals. Favorite track: Praise to the Nova Rider.

These Hands Conspire Berlin, Germany

Disturbed by a roar that shakes the mountains afar.
The rocks burst asunder as the earth begins to quake.
Three suns eclipsed by green smoke ascents to the sky.

Track Name: Praise to the Nova Rider
Illior, Son of Athion
Known as the splendid one
Sublime offspring of the divine gods

Hither you come back to life
In eternal glory
Breaking free from your captivity

Your name‘s almost forgotten
Undreamed of for ages
Your songs have been faded
Drowned in obliteration

How could they forget you?
Deep down in the stone

In the heart of the mountain

Now that the silence is broken
You came down from your world
The world of the gods

Illior, Son of Athion
Known as the splendid one
Sublime offspring of the divine gods

Hither you come back to life
In eternal glory
Breaking free from your captivity

Almighty warrior
You destroyer of stars
Tell me where your ship sails
In far away distance your songs shall resound
To shake uncharted worlds

Absorb your power from our lifes
Consolidate your will

In the temple of stone deep down in the earth
We await your triumphal return

Your songs will echo in the universe
O Nova Rider bringer of the light
Follow the call into your fate
O Nova Rider Conqueror of Stars

Wherever you‘ll go
Your glowing sword will guide our way back home

Set out into the broad expanse of outer space
To liberate the universe from grief
Your crystal starship will resist all cosmic storms
Curves the space to navigate

O Nova Rider - Brightest star of all
O Nova Rider - Bringer of the light

O Nova Rider - Brightest star of all
O Nova Rider - Bringer of the light
Track Name: The Beast Cometh
The middle sun bursts up
As his sword pierces through
A million of slivers remain
They orbit the core

A sole formation of crystals
Float in the space
The former core of the sun
His fountain of force

Laronis my friend, my brother in arms
Follow your old masters call
I summon you back into this world
Provide me your service again

Black cosmos breaks up
A crack in the sky
And a purple beam of light
Empowers the beast

Fueled by these ancient powers
The starship responds
Descending from above
And lands on the ground
Ilior mylord destroyer of stars
I’ll carry you in this crusade
My soul has been trapped in wasteland Idur
Now I’m released through your will

As Ilior consecrates the beast
Splinters conflagrate
Amalgamate into a shield
To screen his home from harm

Pleased and satisfied the giant beholds the scene
Encouraged by this sight his powers resurrect
Out of Laronis’ maw he takes the crown of gods
He crowns himself with it to boost his force still more
The planet shield shoots flashes down into his cornute crown
The planet shield shoots flashes down into his cornute crown

He turns back towards the mountain
His sword in a firm grip
He strikes out with two mighty strokes
And quarters the old stone

With the god on his back, the beast takes off into space
Right thru the planet shield that opens by the giant's will
Inside Laronis‘ paunch four stones wait to be aroused

Laronis my friend my brother in arms
My will shall be your command
Our duty will lead us to far away worlds
No one will know our names

With the god on his back, the beast takes off into space
Right thru the planet shield that opens by the giant's will
Inside Laronis‘ paunch four stones wait to be aroused
Track Name: The Inner Core of the Middle Sun
Can you hear the drums through space and time?
The sound‘s swelling on
A breath of wind grows into a storm
To devour it all

They seek redemption this far away world
A final outcry from a dying race
Since he started his quest aeons have passed
Unheard in the outer space

But here in the distance…
Something is moving…

Disturbed by a roar
That shakes the mountains afar
The rocks burst asunder as the earth begins to quake
Three suns eclipsed by green smoke ascends to the sky

Unknown creatures fly from the force
As the earth opens up wide
In fear they look up to the mountains
Their tops erupt to the sky

Orange rays wrap the jungle in light
A graceful scene; the time stands still
The planet seems to glow from within
And vibrates with life

And deep down in the mountain's hole
A giant builds silhouettes against green smoke

And deep down in the mountain's hole
A giant builds silhouettes against green smoke

Their call for redemption
This prayer is heard

The drums are now silent
The calling is heard
The giant awoken
Redemption is near

With the strength of a black hole
He takes a deep breath
Emerging from the crater
His head towards the suns
Forced into this man-like shape
For the first time in 1000 years

He jabs his sword towards heaven
Pierces through the core
Of the middle sun

He heard their call
He came
Track Name: The Battle of Sûr
Dash off to your ships and seek refuge in flight
This planet is lost, your defence overmastered
Now they‘re coming, raiding, destroying
The time has come to wailing, bleeding
If you don‘t run away

The splendid one himself
Will judge your head
His severity
The trait you have to dread

Take off with your ships
There is no more time
The warriors approach
Their chantings swell up quick
And now they‘re coming, raiding, destroying
The time has come to wailing, bleeding
If you don‘t run away

The splendid one himself
Will judge your head
His severity
The trait you have to dread

You‘re caught up in the atmosphere
They’ve got you
Your ships will never reach the sky
They‘ll never reach the sky

Every craft is crashed
No single one is left
Your poor world lies shattered at your feet
No idols or resistance to rebuild
They blast them all away

All your troops went down
No single one is left
Your poor world lies shattered at your feet
No idols or resistance to rebuild
There is no second chance

Stand back from your ships and search a place to hide
This planet is lost, your defence overmastered
Now they‘re coming, raiding, destroying
The time has come to wailing, bleeding
If you don‘t run away

Ilior passes the gates of Sûrr
His crystal blade is stained with blood,
His bearing fierce and obstinate
In his clenched hands, a broken spear
Former weapon of Ranasul

They payed a high price for victory
Such a high price for victory
Track Name: Ambush at Antarox IV
Pulled back in normal space
Laronis grunts
The fellowship is held up
By an evil force
A range of small crafts appear,
They head to intercept
The giant provokes his batt‘lers
To get prepared for a fight

With sharpenend arms
Their wrath unleashed,
They rush ahead, spur on the beast
Laronis shouts out his war cry
The vengefulness glints in his eye
He‘s moving fast, he‘s fighting hard,
Breaking the first array
The band of gods leave his back,
Swarms out to form a line

Their crystal blades light up the space,
Forged to put you in your place

Go in and win!
Lead off the fight!
Eliminate the enemy!
Ilior, the time is come
The war will start right here

They rule this game
No one can make a stand
Against the band of gods

Go in and win!
Lead off the fight!
Eliminate the enemy!
Ilior, the time is come
The war will start right here

They rule this game
No one can make a stand
Against the band of gods

They rule this game
No one can make a stand
Against the band of gods
Against the band of gods
No one can make a stand

Their counter-blow destroys your defense line
You can‘t halt their onslaught
Their holy assembly of powers
Makes them unstoppable

Your ambush will lead to your doom
You cannot survive
Take down your weapons and realize
The one and only truth
There‘s one true lord
Ilior
King of gods

Renounce!
Renounce!
Renounce!

Your, your, your..
Renounce your false gods....

Your, your, your..
Renounce your false gods....
Track Name: Son of Korhan
See the shooting stars up there in the sky
The master's tears of grief seem like red rain
Above the battlefield of Antarox IV
The nova rider is in orbit, overseeing his realm

True born is gone
High lord of Korhan
Worship his name
In memory of Ranasul
We make this claim

Feel the pressing gloom lasting for days
The masters vibe of sorrow banned every light
Down on the battlefield of Antarox IV
His banner men sit tight for orders, death watching the tomb

True born is gone
High lord of Korhan
Worship his name
In memory of Ranasul
We make this claim

Ranasul the bearer of hope
Second stone of their mighty four

Fallen in the battle of Sûrr
Our bond ends here
You rendered your vows

Your glory credits
Everlasting fame
We mark and honour
Your dying day

Ranasul the bearer of spear
Youngest lord from a noble house
Your sudden death was a shock
But your sacrifice won‘t be for nothing

Your deeds be forever extolled
Your mind will enter the hall of gods
The earthly presence you lost
But we never forget you, the prodigal son

Your glory credits
Everlasting fame
We mark and honour
Your dying day

Everlasting...
Everlasting....
Ilior kneels before the tomb
Raises his sword for a last salute

True born is gone
High lord of Korhan
Worship his name
In memory of Ranasul
We made this claim
