kadees Anywhere But Home really took me by surprise. Every now and again an obscure modern group will pop up on your radar that really has something special; Dropshard fits this description like a glove.
People who enjoy bands like Marilion and Pain of Salvation should definitely give this promising Italian act a spin - you won't regret it.

Anywhere but home, with no one by my side, with no race inside, no fear, I just want my whole lost life. My cryin’ son in mind, oh, daughter and wife…I’ll come back stronger.

In this sort of vacant night I will close all my young lights. All these streets that tell me loud: “You will never come back home”. When this rising dawn blind my eyes I will shut the doors of time. My friends, now we have to go inside this war that we have to stop! There’s walls of thoughts now that’ll be invading my mind for all the rest of time as a faithful calm of desire. Shade of morning wakes up us and we are crossing out our faces, names and signs, our eyes are full of cold fire. In this war we’re facing old screens that could have never existed. By these arms that let me stay alive this land is cold and wide. When this hell that blinds all my face and l’ll never see the end. My friends, I will never leave your hands your shadows burn on me. Now the sun comes down on us carried by the wings of night that are arrived as a voice that screams a cease-fire… Our faces seem to turn as a puddle of mud that now is changed into blood we are kept awake by tomorrow. In this stage of bloody-stained bodies I’m trying to save my skin. By this rain of bullets, from the skies I see two crows arise. How this battle changed all my life I can feel the cold in veins. My friends, wars of money, many million dollars for our breath.

There I see the world on old dreams and also the distortions of memories.I can not believe, I realize that’s not me he has the same face as the mirror in front of me.Silence lights this room now while days fly away by, tears and oceans that are leaving me. Mother, tries to explain me why dad’s gone away, while I was still nothing, learning to live.Teach me something I can’t listen voices calling words can’t clean this pain. Is this your soul? Well, I don’t know, but I don’t want you! Climb mountains I don’t want to see them on my mind Swim oceans just to purify myself away Catch fire burning all the images of mind Breathe the sky I can’t live without your light at all Climb mountains I remember times we were all there Swim oceans only with your love that burns in me Catch fire waiting your return, it never happened Breathe the sky well, only now I can understand all Shine on Heaven!

I still want to see you like a paradise, feeling deeply only a mention of affection by looking into your eyes, the lighthouse is calling loud your name, now, the rain comes down and crash into the sea.Carried by the headwind you will go, leaving me and our mother alone, well, I don’t know…I’m running with my mind trying to reach you and find, rage and sorrows seems to change like old colors of time. I remember how the silence of my past brings me back into the violence of my loss. There’s a picture in my mind where we were young lay down to the fields of grain where we felt great. Smiles and laughts are lost by now while you’re getting to the stairs and nothing change your thoughts. You were full of your pride, so can you sacrifice me? I’m running with my mind, I’m trying to reach you and find, rage and sorrows are broken like colors of rainbow and are unable to see your intention to love me again. Oh, I know, I don’t know, I don’t know… How I know?

With no one by my side, with no race inside, no fear, I walk alone, again…With no one by my side, with no race inside, no fear… I’ll get back stronger, of course that I will…I’ll come back.

Here I see the world on old dreams and also no distortion that blinds my faith. Never look back and inside that’s my first page to hide how I feel now before this journey and I have to stay with my own. All my cryings have been stopped while I was walking a lot from the south to the north I see silence of towns in my head. Voice of time is arrived from the skies to this land and it calls me again “come back home”, but I can’t hear that so much more. So I decided to buy all the rage with my sins and I’ll never know the name of the actions that I felt inside another life. So I don’t know where I’ll go whitout faces again. So I don’t know where I’ll go changing colours again. I don’t know or I know why I have gone with the night. Now I see all the images, she’s only a vacant light. She doesn’t know how to live in this world she was only thirteen years old. While the sun is going away by now I can’t change what I’ve done. Near me, far away… Near me… Far… Far away… Far away from all… So I don’t know where I’ll go whitout faces again. So I don’t know where I’ll go changing colours again. SILENCE!

Near me, far me… Near me, far… Near me… Far… Now, now it’s time. I’m arrived, I decided nevermind how I feel. Someone else tells me how how I have, have to do without emotions, sorrows again now I borrow your pain. I laid down down on a bed smoking opium when a man got down to to the stairs and told me about a suicide. Ipnotized, I idealized, I realised now I need to see your face to kiss your eyes another time. I run away, away from this. Ways like days full of thorns repudiate by the hate for myself now I’m sure you can not forgive me I was far away from all you’ve forgot who I am. LET ME LIVE! Now I look back and inside I have nothing to hide how I’m after this long long journey. All my cryings have been stopped by the wind of the north that is blowing hard and carrying me away. Voice of time, I’m arrived and now I’m wet and tired, steps like sandstones, I’m coming back home. My young sister is crying now now there’s nothing to hide only now I know the name of the actions. And the doors of time that I’ve shut like the mirror where I have looked show me all my mistakes and troubles. Pardon me, please give me your heart.

Anywhere but home with no one by my side with no race inside, no fear falling here in your tears looking through your eyes.

Don’t try to sell me something that I can not realize. You think that my religion is to appear and not to live. Mirrors are broken by echos of ourselves, lying on dust clouds of human belief. You take my imagination then warp it in front of my eyes. Cities are walking on! No one can see that is only a white lie. And than you come inside, into the market of freedom buying and selling open mind. And everything is paradise, they will be able to choose your useless life to the end of time. Struck by this supermarket I realize that is my town, people has only his price and nobody can cry. Screens and shop windows are cutting all my senses. I’ll run away from this city nobody’ll can see me escaping, this deafening silence is burning all my violence. You take my imagination, then warp it in front of my eyes. Cities are walking on! No one can see that is only a white lie.

about

We decided to take our first step into the music as a child who takes his first steps into the world: full of doubts, perplexities and questions. Often, some of these questions seem to have no answer, but sometimes we only need to take a look around: maybe what we are searching for is just under our eyes. We won’t make this journey alone, a family is the starting point of every human being, the fulcrum and a place where everyone can find time to rest. We present you this work that we have prepared for an entire year, a lifetime, an experience that everyone has lived, is currently living or has not lived yet.

Recorded at Frequenze Studio, Monza (MB).
Released by Sonic Vista Music.
