Crypt Guard I can't tell you how much 'Afghan Sky' has been on repeat on my headphones. I mean that song boasts one of the most infectious choruses of the year and the rest of the record doesn't lag behind. On 'Payan', Samavayo audibly vent their rage with a pinch of punk and a tight and riff-heavy slab of stoner rock that has got energy and vocal hooks for days.

DenpaFuzz With fuzz turbines at full throttle, SAMAVAYO builds what is possibly their heaviest, most progressive and furious album of their entire existence. With a punk attitude in some of their songs, the trio complements their desert attacks with fantastic arrangements and melodies, with which they achieve fascinating songs.Full review: denpafuzz.com/2022/03/24/resena-samavayo-payan/ Favorite track: Payan feat. Igor Sydorenko.

jjkoczan Hard to pick a favorite here. Samavayo are a rare band in heavy rock. More than 20 years on, they continue to push forward creatively and engage the real world in ways most acts aren't nearly brave enough to do. One of a kind, and to be appreciated as such. Favorite track: Prophecy.

Johnny Bargeld Vatan was a masterpiece, so this is a safe blind buy. Especially after seeing the well known names of the genre taking guest parts. Favorite track: Afghan Sky feat. Nick DiSalvo.

Turn the lights off, hold your breath! Don't you remember the lucid signs of death? No hope for mercy and no escape We cannot stay, we cannot wait another day! Deluded and betrayed, they're coming down the way Abandoned In this cage, surrender to their rage Deluded and betrayed, they're coming down the way Abandoned and displaced, surrender to their rage Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! Hopes and dreams, fragile lives Fall apart, wait and die! Hold my hand! Rise up high! Don’t let loose in the Afghan sky! This is the nightmare, The darkest end The age of hate the world allows to be our fate Deluded and betrayed, they're coming down the way Abandoned in this cage, surrender to their rage Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! Hopes and dreams, fragile lives Fall apart, wait and die! Hold my hand! Rise up high! Don’t let loose in the Afghan sky! We are lonely survivors We never learned how to live We are tired of fighting We’ve got nothing to give Hopes and dreams, fragile lives Fall apart, wait and die! Hold my hand! Rise up high! Don’t let loose in the Afghan sky! In the Afghan sky! In the Afghan sky!

Extinction of the future by the children of the past, Annihilation of the masses liberated last. The greedy arms of white men, their rotten breath of wealth, a seedy proclamation, sympathy they still pretend. sympathy they still pretend! sympathy they still pretend! Transcend! Exceed! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Tear down this greed, mutilation and deceit! Reclaim! Retreat! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Transcend! Exceed! Move on, the end is near! This is the bitter end far from where it began, the signs we could have seen if we just wanted to regret. Now that we got no choice the time is gone for good, we cannot cut it off, this life sustaining part of us this is a part of us. This is a part of us! This is a part of us! Transcend! Exceed! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Tear down this greed, mutilation and deceit! Reclaim! Retreat! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Transcend! Exceed! Move on, the end is near! Goin’ down, keep spinning round, How long will we fall? Do we ever hit the ground? Goin’ down, keep spinning round, How long will we fall? Do we ever hit the ground? Transcend! Exceed! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Transcend! Exceed! (Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!) Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on! Move it on!

about

The 7th full-length album of Samavayo.

Melodic, riff-heavy, heavy and compact. One album. seven songs 43 minutes. Samavayo put an exciting album on the table that can surprise.
Musically, the record differs audibly from its predecessors: more heavy, more prog, a lot of rage and a pinch of punk, polyphonic Alice In Chains vocals and last but not least an illustrious group of guests who visited the studio and for SAMAVAYO contributed unusual solo parts: Igor Sydorenko (Stoned Jesus), Tommi Holappa (Greenleaf, Dozer), Nick DiSalvo (Elder) and Willi Paschen (Coogans Bluff) didn't take long to ask.
