Stéphane Gallay Rendezvous Point signe ici un album très bien foutu, qui réussit globalement son alchimie entre metal progressif et néo-prog. Ça ne fonctionne pas à tous les coups, mais dans l’ensemble, je recommande Universal Chaos aux amateurs de metal, de prog et de mélodie – les trois ensembles. (Chroniqué sur alias.erdorin.org) Favorite track: The Takedown.

Dave Gauer This album makes me happy. It sounds good with headphones and in the car. It's hard to pick a favorite song. I'm blown away by Geirmund Hansen's vocals. He can sing very, very cleanly or belt it out with a rasp. He doesn't use much vibrato, which makes his voice a welcome change from a lot of "typical" operatic rock/metal singing. I want more! Favorite track: The Takedown.

Dennis Radaelli On this album Rendezvous Point pick their best elements from Solar Storm and added a lot of good experiments, cleary heard on songs like Apollo and Resurrection. A very solid record. Congratulations ♥ Favorite track: Resurrection.

Apollo 05:32
Wave from your window Scream out my name Wipe out my legacy And guide me back home Now I’m in total absence I’m without air I’ve used it all on hatred, lust and despair This is my last redemption, I see it clear Raise your heads and watch me disappear Tell me I’m no one tell me I’m done Wipe out your tears as I’m ready to go I’m tired of chasing my thoughts as they’re pulling me down And I know that you’re hurting, but I have to leave you alone But you cannot make a sound It’s too late for you to realize That I’m leaving you here to be left all alone As I fly out Now I fly out Now I’m in total absence I’m without air I’ve used it all on hatred, lust and despair This is my last redemption, I see it clear Raise your heads and watch me disappear

Our life, in a digital portal Portraits vanish in hyper speed Measuring wealth in abstract numbers We´ve all agreed to the system of greed It´s fragile as crystal in motion. The way we connect and save our memories You will not notice before it is stolen Lives can be ruined by boredom and hate Hiding my face in the black apple Hoping that someone will like my charade Endless of hours with white noise and light Searching for meaning in digital waste RUN, as far as you can go Just leave it all behind No one will ever know Hiding my face in the black apple Hoping that someone will like my charade Endless of hours with white noise and light Searching for meaning in digital waste This is the world we all have equally made Some of us consciously and others with pain Will you look back at the life you have lived Will you ever see what you´ve done? Run, as far as you can go Just leave it all behind No one will ever know

Weightless, am I about to lose my mind? Chaos, a sudden curiosity Breath in, forget the life I had before Eyes closed, am I about to die? On the floor Naked and unafraid Closed eyes and picturing Life how it was before Not for long Before it all disappears Your face fading to the sound Of my nails on concrete walls My hands are shivering I´m on my own You said you´d follow me, but now you’re gone It always ends like this, I lose control What now, I can´t take this anymore Weightless, Am I about to lose my mind? Chaos, a sudden curiosity Breath in, forget the life I had before Eyes closed, am I about to die?
4.
Pressure 03:49
For so many years I´ve suppressed my own feelings Now they are gone I´m incapable of doing what it takes In so many ways I´ve overlooked the crucial needs I have had In a search for a role as everybody`s rock The things that I have will never be enough I crave even more My unsatisfaction controls every move I´ve let people crush me just to give a chance for them to let go My way to forgive and let them know I´m there You´ll never see the best of me Not if you keep on pressuring I see myself through your dark eyes I´ll never be the best of me Once more I must hide my anger Everyone around me is hurting more Come to me and cry out all of your despair I´ve lost track of what is living Now I´m barely just hanging on You say that you love me All I feel is dust You´ll never see the best of me Not if you keep on pressuring I see myself through your dark eyes I´ll never be the best of me Always a way to move on To move on
5.
The Fall 04:58
You were my all You were my fall When I was younger Young as a child I never cared for You running wild I mirrored your movements You questioned my will I had no other You made me still Now my heart is dark I suppress the will to move on Never evolving Can I blame you For anything Silently waiting For a recall Out in the open Fighting it all I scream without power I whisper a prayer Someone, drag me out of dirty water My thoughts are binding me your hate is killing me Look at the hatred I spread Losing control of my innocence No longer innocent Your face is glittering You keep on pushing me over the edge I have become all you wanted This is the end of it all I´m falling down in the Cradle of my selfishness
6.
The Takedown 05:49
Release me here Just let me face you Please be still now Before the takedown Release me here Just let me face you Please be still now Before the takedown I´m walking slowly with blindfolds tied hard over my eyes Breathing in the dusty smell of oil and your crooked wealth In any other situation I am weaker than most, But now I´m ready to explode, I am ready to set things straight Captured by those who thinks they´re gods Blinded by those who speak of gold and fame Pushes me further towards the flames Filthy tongues whisper my name Release me here Just let me face you Please be still now Before the takedown Drag them in, spit ´em out Make them feel fearless Drag them in, spit ´em out Make them feel fearless Move beyond, throw the flame Make them pay for Their own mistakes Release me here Just let me face you Please be still now Before the takedown
7.
Unfaithful 03:59
I am on fire My insides burning I can´t get enough You´re my desire I need to feel your face, need to evolve You are my siren Lose my mind as I give in with lust You are my poison I leave my life behind you´re the next big thing I leave my life behind Let me in Just one night I know this hurts you You´re not here so you will never know My mouth deserts me Searching for a thing that is not real So why am I here Home is far away, please lock the door Go close the curtains No one here but you and me and lust We´re moving Closer You´re coming Closer We´re moving Closer I can´t get Closer
8.
Resurrection 05:46
Risen to feel, left here to fall As everyone before me Searching for signs Do I belong here Where will I be when it is over It all drifts by so fast Slowly embracing the unknown Now is the time, to figure out Whether to fall or to move on I´m breaking down, I´m so afraid of the unknown I´ve had a life full of mistakes Blinded by hate, left for myself No one will care, I am a faded memory You see me crawling in dust Craving answers So many light years away Push me forward You watch me drowning in vain Is this final I feel it over again Resurrection Colder Darker I am lost Silence Weightless Breathless Gone? No one can hear my desperate thoughts Even when they see me Turning their heads Walking away No one to blame Nothing to say Will this be resurrection Or has my life come to an end You see me crawling in dust Craving answers So many light years away Push me forward You watch me drowning in vain Is this final I feel it over again
9.
Undefeated 04:56
I never thought you´d make it I never thought you´d dare But you did, you did 31 years of hatred 31 years since dawn They´re fading, fading Trust is all you can ask for Nothing more is allowed I´m the only grey soldier Help me save them all Look at the ones they’ve captured Listen to how they sing They´re fighting, trying Trust is all you can ask for Nothing more is allowed I´m the only grey soldier Help me save them all We are a thousand voices screaming for equality And we are stronger, stronger We are a thousand voices craving our eternity It is all over We will We´ll rise We will We will We’ll rise We’ll be We will We’ll rise We will
