Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) Great music keeps on coming from Russia! This is true for all genres, including prog rock. "Eternal Wanderers", a joint venture by sisters Elena and Tatyana Kanevskaya, is not new to me. I was quite impressed by their debut album "Journey Out Of Time" (unreleased until 2017), and even more so by their latest longplayer "Homeless Soul". Native speakers might frown upon a strong slavonic accent, but the music is crafted perfectly, bravely staying away from all the well-known silly prog clichés. Favorite track: Meteor.

Invested with mystery, covered with snow A mountain stands, Lapsed into silence all along And plunged into a reverie Contemplating the immense scenery And following the sun in its way Which brings the light and warmth, And every fiber of life seems to awake. The mountain contemplates the boundless world, And the infinite flow of thoughts never stops Like incessant time flow...

Her sole home is space, She's the cosmos queen, The world is loneliness, Her life is wandering. She is going nowhere Yielding to the distant call. Death will never come, She'll be always young, She will roam all along. She will forever be The eternal wanderer. Pure and lonely At eternal night She has only The feeling of delight With rise and death of worlds, With the flying comets song, Death will never come, She'll be always young, She will roam all along. She will forever be The eternal wanderer. One day she'll come near A planet with life’s gift, Where she will hear A call that will make seethe Something in her soul That will prompt her to rush there, But this ardent soul Will run into the wall, To surmount it she won't dare. Since then her life will be Eternal suffering, Nothing but memories Will remain within About that passionate call That in cold space she'll never hear, Sometimes she'll turn round, But will go farther For millions years. Death will never come, She'll be always young, She will roam all along. She will forever be The eternal wanderer.

Like all living things space is subject to changes Bizarre transformations will go on for ages, Huge galaxies will collide, new worlds will be born Long after we’ve gone. And a new star will light up an alien world, Under fresh drops of rain strange flowers will unfold, Someone’s deep piercing eyes will behold a new dawn Long after we’ve gone.

From the heart of nebula, From remotest corners of galaxy From recesses of far constellations You will come. Over the mountains, Over lava colliding with ocean Over canyons and huge stone pillars You will fly. Having cleft space distortion And celestial spheres You will play with the lights on the pole, To the lake of my sadness, To the precipice of years, To diffused light of dawn You will fall. Deep in my memories, In ethereal tune in my fingers, In subconscious disquiet in my soul You will stay. Having flashed in the darkness You'll disperse like a vision In abyss of the infinite skies And you'll send me a message With the cosmic emission From the worlds where harmony lies... A night's piece of art, A moment of revelation, A guest in my dreams, A bringer of prophecy.

The fire of life has died inside And there's no future here for me, The endless stray thoughts Seized my mind Demolishing my sanity. The silent mask is on my face, The light of passion is locked inside. To stay here more there's no sense, No sense to lead a spirit's life. I wanna give my life for you... I don't need you to know me, Don't need your tears for my lost soul. Just want your eyes deep like the sea To shed pure light in this dark world. I yearn for tears to fill my eyes, Just like the desert waits for rain, But there's no answer from the skies, My ardent prayer is in vain. I wanna give my life for you... I can't be gone in depth of space! To leave this world without a trace! My fire of passion is too strong, To death it never can belong! I wanna give my life for you...

Ending of the day, Long deep shadows falling Stations, city bustle fly behind, Streets as if alive Move in melancholy To the black abyss of coming night. When above the ruins Restless wind is crying And no borders lie 'Mid the future and the past Let there'll come a sign That there's something never dying And let my memories ever last. Just another dream Anxious and exciting, Hardly trying to collect my thoughts. Spilled wine, aching mind Scattered sheets of writings And tomorrow's loop of same grey roads. Don't stop the night, Don't stop the moonbeams streaming, Let no borders lie 'Mid the future and the past Send me just a sign That this chain will have a meaning, Let chaos of reason never last. Ending of the day, Streets as if alive, Wind above the ruins, Just another dream...

It's cold here… Oh, how it's cold, dear me! Relentless silence… It all seems a bad dream… Distorted sounds, Ringing in my head Cries of the doomed ones Oh, they drive me mad! The whirlwind of shapeless boulders Running at tremendous speed It’s all that is left of what was The home of my hopes and dreams The cobweb of scorched fissures Where kids played, and life was serene All is buried in the malicious Mouths yawning in scathing grin No friendly fire to warm me, No place to get my breath Homeless soul, thrown here With no shelter left… Please better kill me… Strike the deathly blow! Oh, they don’t hurt my body, They just wound my soul Please let me lose my reason And memories become obscure This void has become my prison Its fetters forever to endure! Through secret wormholes And warped grid of spacetime Through quasars and pulsars Beating in silent rhyme Burst to the Universe’ end Following a neutrino’s flight Searching again and again The home that I’ll never find No friendly fire to warm me, No place to get my breath Homeless soul, thrown here With no shelter left… Restless, oh always restless Among this cold, death and stones! I don’t believe that my world is lost! I can’t be a homeless ghost all along!

Invested with mystery, Covered with snow A mountain stands, Lapsed into silence all along And plunged into a reverie Contemplating The immense scenery And following the sun in its way Which brings the light And warmth, and every Fiber of life seems to awake. The mountain contemplates The boundless world, And the infinite flow of thoughts Never stops Like incessant time flow… "Time is impartial, It passes implacably Along the world Taking with it civilizations To the nonentity, To cold and mysterious Oblivion's vaults, Disposing of death and rebirth, Thinking it is all-mighty over Everything in the Universe. But I know life as light Is eternal In the world of transient And passing things, Some day, even when my planet dies Life will spread its wings. Beauty and love are still In the dew of their youth 'Cause in all the time I see Pure souls that keep them In their reveries." Invested with mystery, Covered with snow A mountain stands, Lapsed into silence all along And plunged into a reverie...

about

The album represents the result of a three-year creative searching. One can find here both dynamic prog-rock and ethnic motives with sitar and djembe, jazz pulsation and symphonism, electronic soundscapes and powerful pop-rock. The story of the title song, echoing in some other tracks, is about a cataclysm that led to the destruction of the planet, with thousands of homeless souls thrown into cold, silent space without hope of ever finding shelter and peace.
The album includes a prologue and 9 tracks with a total duration of one hour.
