“MIRRORLAND” is the second full-length album of the Estate band. It is powerful, attractive, mystical epic progressive power metal. There were many crucial events during the recordings and not all of them were positive but “Mirrorland” was born with the help of all the difficulties the band came through.
The album is a huge step up for the band; it becomes obvious as we listen to the sound and overall quality of the material. It is much more heavier and progressive by no means the Estate band lost their calling card – the lyrical and romantic melodism. The album is very diverse but the songs keep the same vibe and are filled with obscure and mysterious atmosphere.

The album has such strong tunes as “Mirrorland”, “Lady Wind”, “The Ghoul” and a dark medium tempo horror story “Springtime”, plus traditional power metal ballads like “Winter Kingdom” and “Silvery Skies”. There is a special three-act opus that is called “Storm of the Age”. It was written under the influence of works of an American writer, Glen Cook, a founder of the dark fantasy genre.

Track Name: Mirrorland
01. Mirrorland (04:27)
(M: V.Lalayan Co: D.Mauzer, P. Filevsky / L: V.Lalayan)

I
Silence ringing in my ears, the clock strikes midnight and then freeze
A shooting in the dark breaks all the mirrors down
Disappearing in the dream I hear my silent noiseless scream
My silent scream

II
Death is hiding at the wall and I am ready for my fall
To catch a bullet with my head, my heart and soul
I burned like wings of butterfly, but certainly don’t want to die
Upon a fire


Bridge
Into the Mirrorland I’m flying - world behind the looking glass
Where I will disappear among the clouds and broken mirrors
Surrounded by the crystal splinters I will dissipate the dust
The dust of stars and planets

III
I try to hold the emptiness so weakly and so meaningless
In fact I fall into the abyss and the void
This darkness that surrounds me makes me alive and makes me free
Forever free!

IV
I drift between the life and death, the mirror stole my pure faith
It really differs from what people used to think
There’s no angels and no harps as well as demons and the gods
The mirror trick

Bridge (repeat)

Refrain
I’m falling too deep, but it seems flying high
Wasting away all my best priceless time
Reflecting again in the hundreds of mirrors

It’s easy to stand at the edge of the fate
Bringing my soul to the infernal gate
Much harder to rise from the dust and the ashes
(To Mirrorland! To Mirrorland!)
Track Name: The Ghoul
02. The Ghoul (05:10)
(M: D.Mauzer Co: P. Filevsky / L: D.Mauzer)

I
Silver bullet will fly straight to my rotting heart
All my monolith walls will be falling apart
Taste the sand on my teeth, feel your blood in my veins
With a stone on my neck I am out of my brains
Bullet breaks through my flesh, I feel cold in my chest
Do you know who I am, my invisible guest?
Do you hear, stupid one, all these howls in the wood?
Better hide, better run, you will be understood

II
You are looking so brave, you are mighty and tall
And I think you don’t care of your body and soul
But please let me explain you just one simple thing
Once you entered my home you will never leave it

Refrain
Half an hour till the sunrise, I see the light…
There’s a corpse in my room takes my sorrow and pain
Breathe the air of spring, rotting flesh and decay
There is nothing to say, ‘cause this corpse is mine

III
This is worse than death, this is worse than life
Seven drops of my blood burned a hole in the ground
As I raised from Hell pray to God for myself
Just to let it all end, open the gates to the Hell
Gates to Hell, to Hell, gates to Hell

IV
I’m rising up from my coffin and every night
Think about damnation that makes me alive
For long five hundred years I can’t see the light
Maybe one day or night I’ll decide to try

V
Here and now… won’t fall asleep this hour
Behind the open door I see the bloody dawn
I am the ghoul
Track Name: Stolen Heart
03. Stolen Heart (04:35)
(M: I.Ferro Co: D.Mauzer, P. Filevsky / L: I.Ferro)
I
Her way across the light of sky
The endless kiss I feel on the scars
Oh! wild girl will never be mine
I know I'm so close to crime!

Bridge
The gods are fear to fall in love, just only madman loving you
And you again turns breach of tree to veins of sky. The blind hearts cry.

Refrain
Oh! Gods. She has gone far away
To the land of the morning stars
Hold me in your dreams with no lie
When you going away from my love

Bridge II
When I fall down you'll bring me up by only word
You call me here.
I'm gonna live with stolen heart
The lips to lips but we apart.
Track Name: Winter Kingdom
04. Winter Kingdom (04:14)
(M: A.Krylov, D.Mauzer, P.Filevsky, I.Ferro / L: D.Mauzer)
I
It’s time to give myself to freedom
And see what’s there beyond
From Winter sleepless kingdom
I flee and cut the bond (cut the bond)

II
You’ve been a stranger to this world
It’s never been your soul mate
But you endured this alone
And have never felt afraid
A dim shine of leading star
Prevent from showing you the way
Uncertainty is your old scar
Break the chains and inhale!

Refrain
The wall surrounds
The edge of your sanity
You stand alone
Snow is winter’s destiny
Track Name: Storm of the Age
Storm of the Age (04:12)
(M: V.Lalayan Co: D.Mauzer, P.Filevsky / L: D.Mauzer)

I
The sun’s standing still as if it’s our last dawn
Silent alert, all fears dying as the bell tolls
Morning haze. Waiting is eternity’s spawn
Your ideas in my head like battle crows

Bridge
On the edge, on the verge
The world is numb for us
The beast is now arising
Ashes and snow all around
I’m with you till the end

II
Hear the heartbeat – to stop or to rise above all
The cost of our life grows on the battle field
Salvation won’t come, tonight together we’ll fall
For our destiny. But our souls will be healed.

Bridge

Refrain
The Storm of the Age
In the ocean of featureless names
The black flag rises above us
Fire and steel
Now we must head for our aims
The raven of dismay soars so fast
Track Name: Knight of Hope
Knight of Hope (04:39)
(M: A.Krylov, D.Mauzer, P.Filevsky, I.Ferro / L: D.Mauzer)

I
Knight of Hope is beside
A gleam of light in her dream
Hope to stick to the scheme
Fears and regrets are denied

II
This day is to be mine
No more ache and tears
Eternity is predefined
A beautiful road of reverie

Refrain
Give me a sight, Knight of Hope
Don’t delay, I have faith
Hear my call, Knight of Freedom
Hear the toll so saddle up!

III
The blaze of starlight
Lights up her race
Struggling to shake off the dream
She flies above the abyss
Refrain (repeat)
Track Name: Lady Wind
Lady Wind (04:50)
(M: D.Mauzer Co: P.Filevsky / L: D.Mauzer)

I
Covered by darkness and filled with cold rain
Thoughts of infinity explode my brain
All my violent dreams are close to collapse
I realized that the truth is too false
Pentagram is burning upon my flesh
Rage of impotence is about to crash
Take off my morning, my hope and my smile
Take my body and please leave my soul for a while

Refrain
You are my fury Lady Wind
Imaginations you will breed
And fly away until I bleed
Far away… far away

II
Shadows are playing upon the wall
I see dark wings of the angels that fall
Lady of Sadness belongs to me
But Lady Wind is just only a dream

Refrain
Track Name: Silvery Skies
08. Silvery Skies (04:36)
(M: D.Mauzer Co: I.Ferro, P.Filevsky / L: D.Mauzer)

I
When moon is rising close your eyes
Take a fly over me to the silvery skies
With every moment of your sweet dream
I’ll be much closer, baby, soon I’ll come in

Refrain
Lake of silver skies, land of golden prairies
Shadow of your smile like a breathe of stars
From a mountain high to well of wonders
Down to the emerald wood
I really want you back for good

II
When sun is rising open your eyes
Take a look over me to the silvery skies
In every heartbeat I hear your voice
You are my life, sweet darling, you are my choice
Refrain (repeat)
Track Name: Matter of Time
09. Matter of Time (04:05)
(M: V.Lalayan Co: D.Mauzer, P.Filevsky / L: V.Lalayan, D.Mauzer)


I
These winter dreams — my best friends
Dark water flows take me far away
Dark walls of ice building defense
Ohhhh

I wish to conceive I yearn to know
Mighty heavenly birds and dark nights
Break the tight chain of tedium
Ohhhh


Oh, yes, I believe I can fly
I wish everything will be mine
It’s just only matter of time

II
Boundless woods, no one by my side
I stare at the world blindfold
I escape this vicious circle guide

Friendly winds help me go ahead
And a wild laugh deafens every word
It’s an odd game hanging by a thread

Bridge
O-o-oh, I know and I know it for sure
O-o-oh, my heart is absolutely pure
O-o-oh, I wish to fly and to be free
Even if you don’t believe in me

Refrain (repeat)
Track Name: Springtime
10. Springtime (04:41)
(M: D.Mauzer Co: P.Filevsky, I.Ferro / L: D.Mauzer)

I
Off with the head, let it roll away
Don’t grief me with your heaviness
‘Cross the woods and mires unexplored
Spread some wisdom and happiness

Tell the children a nighttime fairy tale
A story of bitter experience
Expose the darkest side of obscurity
But tell it gently in whispers

Share your thoughts of uneasiness
Remember the eyes became bloody red
And the noose tighten ‘round your neck
Then the blackest soil covered your head

People buried your name to oblivion
And only beasts howled at night
This story is for no faint-heart
Why are you running?
Get back!

II
I can hear strangers’ heartbeat
I know a salty tear heat
Get back!
I feel the rusty knife on my veins
I know how my heart aches
Springtime!

Springtime! Hey!
Springtime! Hey!

III
Set me free from your chains
Close my eyes and say Goodbye
Intoxicated with your poisonous dust
Feels like woe in this house again, again, again…
Springtime!
