about

Mage Leicestershire, UK

Five years and three well received releases later, The death of guitarist, artist and brother Ben Aucott in 2015 has not stopped the music.
Their path will be forever changed but they fight on and will remain ‘Goddamn Heavy’. Their stoner roots are fused with doom and eclectic metal and rock influences.

Track Name: Dark Matter
Falling through the void
Four billion years this rock has spun
From dust we’re born
Irradiated by the sun
By the sun

In ice and iron
The source of life collides with Earth
Desolation
Sowed the seeds for our birth

We search the chaos for truth
We search in vain
Galactic fire, cosmic winds and solar rain
Solar rain

From the age of asteroids
Within, the elemental clue
Touch the stars
Hold the universe as it holds you
Track Name: The Fallen
Heaven’s wrath against me burned
Prince of the morning ever spurned
Celestial brothers cast me down
For challenging the word
Dissemination of doubt

The fall
The fall
I, once held above them all

Behold below the pits of Hell
Barren, desolate
Awaiting me, its ranks to swell
Till at the last I send them forth
To a holy war and decimate his precious Earth

The fall
The fall
I, once held above them all

Prince of the power of the air
I, Ballam
Loved once above all others
I was the first
Mankind, you will bow to me
You will fear my name
And I shall have my revenge
Track Name: Old Bones
Six feet down, still sucking air
Some act of God or voodoo shit keeping us here
Hell’s boiling over, spat us back
Rise from our graves to the attack

What’s good in life, twice as good in death
A second chance to waste my breath
Old habits die hard but these days these days so do I
So I’m getting weird and living high

Burned out once, now I’m back
The wicked get no fuckin’ slack
I might be dead but I’m not dumb
They hunt for flesh, I have my fun

What’s good in life, twice as good in death
A second chance to waste my breath
Old habits die hard but these days these days so do the dead
A second chance to wreck my head

From my window I sit and watch the world go by
The living run and the living die
Breath that old familiar air
Undead and not a care
Blaze my decaying skin
Crack one open, pour it in
Soak these old bones
Smoke these old bones
Track Name: Lux Mentis
From the dawn of time
Men sought for their gods
Delved into the mind
Reading ash and bone
Found in earth and sky
Magic filled the world

Earth
Sky
Fire

Earth
Sky
Fire

From the darkness, light
Lore of flesh and stone
Alchemy of life
Ever seeking truth
Ever greater heights
Immaculate pursuit?

Earth
Sky
Fire

Earth
Sky
Fire
Track Name: Beyond
We leave this ruined rock
Sealed in steel wombs
Our worlds, our homes
Burnt and twisted tombs
Thrust, lurch, launch, escape
Gravity decay
Search for new terrain
In fear we hope and pray

We go beyond
The great beyond

Synthetic coma sleep
Time dilates
Traverse the galaxy
Delay our final fate
Quest for fertile globe
A new home to make
Rebuild, revive
For survival’s sake

We go beyond
The great beyond

Life systems fade away
We fail to unearth
Habitable new world
No hope of rebirth
Adrift in endless space
Hostile cosmic void
Lock course for the sun
Humanity destroyed
Track Name: Violent Skies
Oceans will rise
Mountains will fall
Hell and high water rains on us all
Mountains will fall
Oceans will rise
The gods ride out on violent skies

Feel it in the air
The smell of rain and the bristling hair
Vaporous waters on the skin
The calm before the storm begins

Oceans will rise
Mountains will fall
Hell and high waters rain on us all
Mountains will fall
Oceans will rise
The gods ride out on violent skies

Lightning fires up the clouds
Thunder roars and rolls around
Green light turns to grey
Rain to ice and winds to hurricanes

Oceans rise
Mountains fall
Track Name: One For The Road
So
One for the road
Before I go
A parting song

That road
Dark as it goes
It calls me on
It calls me on

In the hours before the light
I feel my soul is draining and that ain’t right
My cup is empty, the music’s died

So
One for the road
Before I go
A parting song

That road
Dark as it goes
It calls me on
It calls me on

Through the darkness, side by side
We raise our spirits, we abide
My cup flows over one more time

So
One for the road
Before I go
A parting song

That road
Dark as it goes
It calls me on
It calls me on
