about

This is Act of Departure's first full length album, released in the summer of 2015.

The album sets AOD to a new musical level, with the Italians blending heavy breakdowns, anthemic choruses and crunchy dubstep drops to achieve the perfect modern metal sound.
The concept album talks about human race and in particular about how we are slowly degenerating, but each song is a story of her own.
Musically and lirically, this is a huge step forward compared to the EP "Our Past, Our Tragedy".

Track Name: We've Lost The Way (Intro)
//
Track Name: Down To The Rabbit Hole
And now you’ve got your fingers crossed, once again
Even when all you see is desolation
Will you still pray for salvation
Looking up to a greater force
Like the unknown could answer you
Like all you saw were plastic phantoms

Time to break the crystal ball
The human fear has dwelt and
Time to rise and stand up tall
Don’t dig yourself in the rabbit hole

FUCK
Still I just can’t believe
You force your will to see
A globe with pretended barriers
Convictions swallowed like vital pills

And now you’ve got your fingers crossed, once again
Even when all you see is desolation
Will you still pray for salvation

Time to break the crystal ball
The human fear has dwelt and
Time to rise and stand up tall
Don’t dig yourself in the rabbit hole
Don’t dig yourself down
Re-think the knowledge you’ve found
Don’t dig yourself down
Smoke and mirrors face the ground
The fire of ignorance burns like the tail of the phoenix
Unveil the truth of this shade

Down to the rabbit hole
Track Name: When We Were Wolves
Look at yourselves
The image fades as the dust on a shelf
Marching Soldiers
Of an empire of decerebration

Do you remember?
When We Were Wolves
Never lost our sleep over the words of the mindless sheep
Will you surrender
To this endless shame
Or will you face like a man
The challenges in your lane

Knives now cut from behind mirrors’ reflections
As we cover our faces with masks
We can’t control the strength of our words
And we keep feeding a system of fakery

Refuse this bullshit
This is fucked up from the bone
Refuse this bullshit
Be the one torch that stands, facing the light of the moon

I will no longer take this
It’s a thought the makes me hopeless
Vice stains our big knowledge
The shining eyes are staring at you
Ready to judge every action you do

In a globe where spineless creatures
Make profit out of somebody’s weakness
I’m leaving without regret
These broken chains I just want to forget

Do you remember?
When We Were Wolves
Never lost our sleep over the words of the mindless sheep
Will you surrender
To this endless shame
Or will you face like a man
The challenges in your lane

OHW
Our hunting season is open again

OPEN THE EYE OF THE WOLF
OPEN THE EYE OF THE WOLF
Let the jaw bite strong
Track Name: So Bring Me Back Home (Interlude)

Track Name: Caged Shadows (feat. MC Viper from DAMN CITY )
[MC Viper]
HEY you man, take your life back
Find your way
Catch the rope I’ve thrown at you YO!
------------------
And here I am again
Facing this war with myself
I think I’ve lost it all
I just can’t climb this wall

Have you ever felt like you were dead inside
So much that your breath
Is the only proof that you’re alive
My soul is trapped in a haunted cage
There with shadows it remains

[MC Viper]
Wake up! Don’t step back
Wake up! No more regrets!
This is time to become a man, find yourself, be yourself
And get on the right track.
Wake up! Don’t step back
Wake up! No more regrets!
One more day in this fucking hell with your friends
Can be better if you break your own shell

________________________________________­___________
All I wanted was to dig deeper inside of me
I never thought I’d end in the darkest places I’ve ever been
I wish these regrets were only memories
I gave it all
But still I’m paying for this

My ship’s now drowning
In this lake of apathy
And my mind’s never been so weak
My eyes are begging to see the land
That lies behind these waves and sand

[MC Viper]
Wake up! Don’t step back
Wake up! No more regrets!
This is time to become a man, find yourself, be yourself
And get on the right track.
Wake up! Don’t step back
Wake up! No more regrets!
One more day in this fucking hell with your friends
Can be better if you break your own shell
______________________
All I wanted was to dig deeper inside of me
I never thought I’d end in the darkest places I’ve ever been
I wish these regrets were only memories
I gave it all
But still I’m paying for this

The grains of sand cross the hourglass ceaselessly
These golden memories are still lying in my heart
If I were gone would you miss me?
Or is my grave the only one waiting?

So bring me back home,
Be the lighthouse in this storm.
Track Name: The Great Tarantella (Pizza,Mandolino & Italian Core)

Track Name: Jonestown Massacre
Today I’ll tell you the story
Of a place where you can live free
A world where justice and equality
Will finally reign supreme

The empire I’ve built
Has its basis on your emargination
The only prophet you need is yourselves
But ‘til you won’t realize that
I’ll keep stabbing your back

All you have to do is believe
Forget all you know and join the utopia with me
We’ll heal all the wounds of this bleeding society

I dare you to become deaf
When the voice of your thoughts
Will be knocking at your head
Keep in mind I’m not a common man
And I can read your mind till you’re dead

The empire I’ve built
Has its basis on your emargination
The only prophet you need is yourselves
But ‘til you won’t realize that
I’ll keep stabbing your back



Our dream has now come true
I’m at your side, working hard with you
The ones who stay in the old dead nation
Are now condemned to a life of oppression
But now they’re coming to get us
Drink the potion before it’s too late
DRINK
This is how we self-liberate
Your freedom is not a choice now
Your freedom is not a choice now.
Track Name: On To The Wreckage
Wake up the blind!
Cause they just can’t see
The human race is
Paving her way to a deserved extinction

What will remain
When no more stars will light the lane?
What will remain
Of our reckless rage

Our home and mother
Is looking down on us
Holding the hourglass in her hands
How did we come to this?
When did the progress become an excuse to feed the human greed?

What will remain
When no more stars will light the lane?
What will remain
Of our reckless rage

We’re digging our grave
Into the deepest abyss
Just like birds
Destroying the tree that they nested on
Cowardice fills the hearts
Of the ones who pretend
They don’t know
That this is something bigger than us all

What will remain
When no more stars will light the lane?
What will remain
Of our reckless rage
On to the wreckage
We paved our way
To the place where it’s useless to pray
For our mistakes

The flowing river brings us the message
Nature’s adepts it’s time we rise
So look the ones who’ve built this straight in the eyes
And tell ‘em welcome to your demise
(To your demise)
Track Name: Ghosts And Ashes 2.0
Yeah!
This is the point of no comeback
The darkest creatures
Are calling from the depths within
Her touch feels like the sharpest blade
Engraving my skin
So close your eyes
And join this bloodcurdling ride
Hear the infernal noise
Of the souls sacrificed
Death’s hand on my shoulder
Reminds me the clock is ticking fast

I’m falling again
Behind ghosts and ashes
My eyes are in front of you
I will find the truth
In a couple of moments
All is falling fast
Because we are in war
This is the price
That we payed

The price we payed
I am now part of this machine it gives me second birth
The sirens of damnation lead you straight to hell on earth

The abyss I’m sinking in
Is ceaselessly
Making it harder to breathe
I can’t remember what it feels like to be alive
Without carrying this lament inside
I am the paladin of hate, but it’s not my choice
Cause every time I close my eyes
All I hear is her voice
I can’t remember what it feels like to be alive
Without carrying this lament inside
She screams for revenge, I won’t be free till her payback
But until then my soul is stained by black
I am the darkest wood
I am the fullest moon
I shed the light of destruction
Now it’s time to set her free
Now it’s time to set her free
SET HER FREE

Don’t beg for mercy
As the knife cuts deeper
Cause I won’t be done with you
Until I suffocate you
With my own hands
Track Name: And Now I'm Falling Again (Outro)
