about

Experienced metal collective under the continuous leadership of their frontman Roos Beast have been rattling metalheads with their unconventional sound and song structures for over 17 years now. No wonder the home town of these gentlemen with it's most badass metal-name imaginable – Electrosteel – is respectively a stronghold of the moscow region headbanders. It's other landmark probably contributing equally much to the band's unconventional approach is the biggest plant producing fuel for nuclear reactors. It might well be that the very radioactive particles covering every wall in town since the soviet era contributed to the madness inside the band members' minds making them merge opposing style elements in almost every song.

The band themselves defines their style as fusion-metal, which sounds extremely justified towards their creation and «st. Portal» proves it once again. With true colliders of songs like «The Search for Truth» combining mercyless grindcore with calmingly melodic choruses or «Crossing the Line» with a complex centepede of hard-rock, alternative metal, metalcore and crossover with keys and sax. Another sticking out track is an instrumental ride «Waves and Clouds» led by the weird synthetic tone instead of the voice.

«We've gone quite far with our 17 years of experiments on the previous albums – says the band's leader, frontman and producer Roos Beast, - and this record is supposed to be more straightforward, easy-to-follow. I'd call this album first and foremost guitar centered, which was not the case with it's predecessors».

Despite the whole pro-guitar agenda, the album doesn’t actually come short of unconventional sounds and unexpected song structures which will not surprise Melancholy’s long time fans. The guest musicians list of 11 names speaks for itself.

Lyrically «st.Portal» continues marking the band’s traditional territory inhabited with aliens, mystic encounters and cosmic features. In the words of the band’s creator: “Everything here serves to drive the listener as far away from the earth as possible, we go deep into space, man!”

Track Name: The Search for Truth
Termination, desolation
Anthill grows
Mass production corporations.
Disgusting needs
Life thrown, disbelief the nation.
Formicary
Civilization
The bloody face of transformation.
Embed mind
Aliens soldiers occupation.
Gold plate is seized
Money and communications
Separation
Immortality

For boys
A little gift for my friends
For boys
My weed is sweeter than your prayers

Confrontation between nations.
Applauds kids
Harvest vegetables deaths.
The badland seethes
Rot away inside the temple
Spit your soul out
War inside my head

Magic stones and decision.
Septessence found
Way of the Warrior to death.
Assemblage moves
In the quest for the black madness.
Dissolving wits
My holy shit

For boys
A little gift for my friends
For boys
My weed is sweeter than your prayers

All hope is gone
Leave me alone in my search for the truth.
I follow the sun
I lose myself as a dying rain under the stars

For boys
A little gift for my friends
For boys
My weed is sweeter than your prayers
Track Name: Stone Eye
Mirror kingdom
Burning freedom

You've got stone eye
Do you believe? You can stop the time.
You've got long life
Do you believe? You can turn the Earth


Broken hopeless
Silence of graves


In the depths of my mind is force of influence time to destroy
The kingdom of hatred.
Driving forces of the stone you can be in different parts
Of space at the same time

You've got stone eye
Do you believe? You can stop the time.
You've got long life
Do you believe? You can turn the Earth
Track Name: Blood & Magic
Universe froze in my hands.
Darkness comes out of hell to me.
Magic blood flowing in my veins.
Now I can stop the time for us
I'll be there before your eyes
I'll be there, fly in the sky
I'll be there in front of your face
Inside your soul light, inside your hot heart
...and Blood!
My empire of chaos thoughts.
The forces of the ocean's depths.
Live beside the graves.
From within a faceless entity

I'll be there before your eyes
I'll be there, fly in the sky
I'll be there in front of your face
Inside your soul light, inside your hot heart
...and Blood!
All I know, you know

I'll be there before your eyes
I'll be there, fly in the sky
I'll be there in front of your face
Inside your soul light, inside your hot heart
Inside your soul, you’re magic...
Track Name: 13 Days of Cell Division
Today I woke up from a sharp blow
Something chews trim my spaceship

Pain broke my back
Pain broke my neck
For 13 days of my cell division

Slumber aft my ship infuriates me
Goddamn the day when we went out
Into space for the missing star


Pain broke my back
Pain broke my neck
For 13 days of my cell division

Send me on river
I will be fine
Climbing through nothing
Not looking around
Living for happiness
Fulfillment of a vow
You stay the course
All my illusions shattered from asteroid

Pain broke my back
Pain broke my neck
For 13 days of my cell division
Track Name: Crossing the Line
To understand yourself, you need to kill time.
Over my head horns from the depths of hell
Life gives way to death, light in the end of the road
To understand my fate, my hate, my life
.
All I know changed my life, there is no turning back,
Every day I wake up in my mind of Space
All I know changed my life, there is no turning back,
Every day I wake up in my mind the Outer Space


My magic spell in your heart.
Flying through the
Even horizon of sweet dreams.
One love one life in the sky,
I cross the line
Track Name: Twisted Forest
Moonlight fell to the ground
The time has come
А glance at their loved ones
Step to nowhere

Twisted Forest, Hero comes back
Twisted Forest, Hero comes back

The window to other side.
This is Dead warrior's way. Rise up above the dust.
In memory

I'm going down
Twisted Forest, Hero comes back
Twisted Forest, Hero comes back

Black clouds on me and now I am free forever.
Fabulous creatures, around me.
Shining ahead, beckons into the abyss.
On the edge

Twisted Forest, Hero comes back
Twisted Forest, Hero comes back
Twisted forest the light is brighter
Track Name: Testosterone
Каждый новый день
С неба сходит лень

Ну давай поднажми, еще чуть-чуть
Моя политика
Не робей, будь сильней, стань умней
Моя политика

Выхожу за дверь
Я дикий злобный зверь

Ну давай поднажми, еще чуть-чуть
Моя политика
Не робей, будь сильней, стань умней
Моя политика

Оглянись, улыбнись, рассчитай свое время
Устремись сверху вниз, снова ввысь
Твое дело
Раскрой глаза, увидишь
Мир, который был серым, стал теперь разноцветным

Ну, давай поднажми, еще чуть-чуть
Моя политика
Не робей, будь сильней, просто бей
Это твоя игра
Track Name: High Stakes
I was born in a small city in the middle of the swamp.
Radioactive waves from the factory, I am a real mutant
No chance to escape from the hole, but you can make a wish.
Sit down at the black game table and play dice


I lose. You win. Because my soul in flames.
Big game, the stakes are very high.
At the cost of life

My opponent is very ugly, red eyes rotten teeth and horns.
Once again, he throws three sixes and the devil comes
To get out of the cold madness, I put my guitar at stake.
That's all I have in my soul there. I try again

I lose. You win. Because my soul in flames.
Big game, the stakes are very high.
At the cost of life

Stay with me
May be even play
I'm happy the joy the club real of suicide

I lose. You win. Because my soul in flames.
Big game, the stakes are very high.
At the cost of life
Track Name: Home
Today the perfect day,
My journey ends the series.
Crossing the line,
I'm falling down.
Right now

Something in the air,
Reminds me of childhood days,
Like in an old movie,
All my life

I'm Home
I got back to Earth.
I love this place.
I'll never forget my way.
And now I'm staying

The porthole flying stars
Sing my heart's desire.
I'm closer to home.
Today
A red, hot atmosphere,
Clouds, fields, and rivers.
This is my world,
This is my life.
Okay

Something in the air,
Reminds me of childhood days,
Like in an old movie,
All my life

I'm Home
I got back to Earth.
I love this place.
I'll never forget my way.
And now I'm staying
