Sacred burial mounds they are covered by the scrap yards and trailer parks A kingdom of fast food dreams and long gone neglected thoughts And they are resting here, they are resting upon ancient lives while the machinery keeps your head up high And it moves forward getting closer ...to the end... A kingdom of fast food dreams They tell you how to feel and how we are supposed to breed A kingdom of scrap yards upon sacred burial mounds and it feels just like the right thing here to do At a distance it all have color but up close they are black and white Yes, at a distance At a distance it all have color but up close they are black and white And they are resting here They are resting upon ancient lives while the machinery keeps your head up high And it moves forward getting closer ...to the end... A kingdom of fast food dreams They tell you how to feel and how we are supposed to breed A kingdom of scrap yards upon sacred burial mounds  and it feels just like the right thing here to do

Drift Away 05:13
Feeling like sleep in the water A scenery of meadows and creeks Shadows of pine trees and the face of him The face of him in the middle And I drift away I drift away I drift far away Leaning on tomorrows hand now I drink of the future Lessons here they are short and sweet And the black flowers they always blossom And I drift away Yes I drift away I drift far away And the land here is flooded by the guilt And the water is poisoned with contempt And the stones wish for all to be said and done And the face of him is cracked by the roots Feeling like sleep in darkness A scenery with meadows and creeks Shadows of pine trees and the face of him The face of him in the middle And I drift away Yes I drift away I drift far away The land here is flooded by the guilt And the water is poisoned with contempt The stones wish for all to be said and done And the face of him is cracked by the roots Yeah, the face of him is cracked by the roots And I drift away Yes I drift away I drift far away

Grind it down and watch it die sleep away all the weekends Hold your breath and speak to none Hide your keys within your mind laugh light without a smile Give it away just one more time Inside the city Inside the city Move on fast and watch it burn dress yourself for a silent fight Keep away and through it out Hide your keys within your mind laugh light without a smile Give it away just one more time Inside the city Inside the city Inside the flames Grind it down and watch it die sleep away all the weekends Hold your breath and speak to none Hide your keys within your mind laugh light without a smile Give it away just one more time Inside the city Inside the city Inside the flames Dress up for a silent fight Inside the city I bleed Dress up for a silent fight Inside the city I bleed

I am the voice We are the people I am your temple You are my rite I am your healer We are no more Detach us from those who can’t see our light Children and lovers - White Night Inject us out - onto the sky I am the voice broadcast through decades

The striped Tasmanian tiger, also called Thylacine, went extinct in the 20th century and the question is who is next in line?

Orochen's Thylacine EP is all about encapsulating the feelings about today’s world and the internal struggle of our modern way of living. A four-track journey that builds up to the only thing that is certain - nothingness.

Orochen has refined their sound once again and this EP is the result of the bands constant search to find their own unique core and novel sound. The songs reach from tribal and folk to straight on rock and metal. On the EP´s last song, Orochen is guested by Alex Stjernfelt (Novarupta, Ex. Mr Death, Ex. Moth Gatherer) to give voice to the EP's last breath.

The Thylacine EP is written, produced and recorded by Orochen during corona lockdown, which has influenced the lyrics, music and sounds. It is mixed & mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (Crippled Black Phoenix, Greenleaf, Novarupta, Breach, The old wind). Photos taken by Johannes Berner (Håkan Hellström) and cover art is drawn by Illusiveillustrations.
