solace Powerful vocals, blazing guitar riffs, thunderous synth leads, this album is on track to be my album of the year.

It really isn't fair that we get such a great album this early in 2019, as every other release this year is going to have to live up to this one. Favorite track: The 80s Never Went Away.

fmradio Stromfire reminds of Billy Idol. But his voice has its own sound and style. It's hard to choose just one favorite track since the entire album is awesome. But I'll choose The 80s Never Went Away because it's the truth! Favorite track: The 80s Never Went Away.

D83 He sounds like Billy Idol, the Ladies, the Guitar and of course the Synth melodies, are a must hear for fans of the 80s. Favorite track: Swampflower Queen.

Track Name: Strong Broken Romantic
Strong Broken Romantic
Still strong, a little broken but full-hearted romantic
Track Name: Eternal
I’m thinking of these days, ended much too soon, hanging out at school together
Lonely Saturdays, still had so much fun, thought these times would last forever

And it’s you that keeps my soul, burning bright all through the darkest night,
My hardest fight - at times beyond belief
Even now when somehow it just seems that the world means nothing to me
Seems the world means nothing to me

I won’t go now nor ever

ETERNAL

Girls have come and gone, scars across our hearts, healing still, can tell the story
We always traced the sun, under desert skies, nothing in our way to worry

And it’s you that keeps my soul, burning bright all through the darkest night,
My hardest fight - at times beyond belief
Even now when somehow it just seems that the world means nothing to me
Seems the world means nothing to me

You are walking at my side since the beginning and for all eternity

I won’t go now nor ever

ETERNAL
Track Name: Schoolyard Days
Monday morning, 8'o'clock, you stumble out of bed
Pick up your backpack, untouched since yesterday, as always unprepared

You grab your headphones, switch the Walkman on
Turn into mixtape hero, while in your head you sing along

Run to the bus stop, catch it just in time, you know you will be late

Enter the classroom, all the looks on you, get detention after school

You grab your headphones, switch the Walkman on
Turn into mixtape hero, while in your head you sing along

They seem so long ago now - Schoolyard days

Don't dare to watch her, afraid she will blank you, your heart goes like a train
Notes on scraps of paper, left for her to find, but you know love's labour's lost

You grab your headphones, switch the Walkman on
Turn into mixtape hero, while in your head you sing along

They seem so long ago now - Schoolyard days

I wish them back today

I wish I could go back and stay
Track Name: Dark Dream
The dwindling love of childhood days, you hardly just can count the ways,
That you failed to please and never seemed to get it right
No matter what you chose to do, how hard you tried to bring it through,
Right from the start you learned to lock your heart

Attached to precious tiny things, free-floating on your broken wings
You’re bound to fall yet not afraid of what is to come
You felt so much, tried to explain but everything remained the same
Eventually when all words ceased, the anger put your soul on freeze

You keep running from that dark dream as long you can remember
All these times in pain you tried to escape in vain
You drown screaming in this dark dream with none to hold on to
Already way too deep to wake up from this endless sleep

You realize the bitter truth, endure its biting razor tooth
The seed being planted deep inside infected you so long
Unlike the ones that came before you won’t hand down the strain no more
Once for all you break the chain, bring downfall to this brutal reign,
Wipe out all with a purging flame

You keep running from that dark dream as long you can remember
All these times in pain you tried to escape in vain
You drown screaming in this dark dream with none to hold on to
Already way too deep to wake up from this endless sleep
Track Name: Swampflower Queen
Dark blonde girl waiting in the entrance hall
Eyes kept down leaning against the wall
Move slowly to the dance floor
And all the guys staring at you, only at you in awe

You conquered all when they laid their eyes on you
Shining so bright like a shooting star, that's what you still do

Swampflower Queen you sway your head around
Swampflower Queen you rule this place alone
I am dancing at your feet, let your smile caress my soul
All the love you taught me, world you showed me
Ancient wisdom of your own
Spread your wings and fly me home

Red Wine Daddy headfirst in the kitchen sink
So much to miss that you don't dare to blink
The Thin White Duke always crossed our way
A look at you and without a word I knew what you would say

You conquered all when they laid their eyes on you
Shining so bright like a shooting star, that's what you still do

Swampflower Queen you reign without a crown
Swampflower Queen enchant us all around
I am dancing at your feet, let your smile caress my soul
All the love you taught me, world you showed me
Ancient wisdom of your own
Spread your wings and fly me home

Swampflower Queen you sway your head around
Swampflower Queen you rule this place alone
I am dancing at your feet, let your smile caress my soul
All the love you taught me, world you showed me
Ancient wisdom of your own
Spread your wings and fly me home

Swampflower Queen you sway your head around
Swampflower Queen you rule this place alone
I am dancing at your feet, let your smile caress my soul
All the love you taught me, world you showed me
Ancient wisdom of your own
Spread your wings and fly me home

Swampflower Queen you reign without a crown
Swampflower Queen enchant us all around
I am dancing at your feet, let your smile caress my soul
All the love you taught me, world you showed me
Ancient wisdom of your own
Spread your wings and fly me home
Track Name: The 80s Never Went Away
I spend some time with you to get me outta blue
Just put my Ray-Bans on and play my favorite song
Move slowly down the street, try to stay on the beat
I know 'Life moves fast', so hold on - it won't last
Hot love turned to stone and left me cold alone
Still feel like seventeen when I watch the TV screen
They're still here, wherever I go, all around me, just like long ago and always will be

The 80s never went away

Cut scenes of barren years where the magic disappears
Somehow this all went by with the blink of an eye
Until my memory fades, recall it all in pastel shades
Like a pink flash in the dark, it's enough to ignite the spark
Blue skies in the night, sun and stars shining bright
I can make it all come true as long as I hold onto you

The 80s never went away
Track Name: Neighbour Stakeout
I’m watching you watching me
Late at night
Track Name: Smalltalk Aversion
You say hello early every day
Without a break engage me in conversation
Ask me about what I did yesterday
There is nothing I can say - it's you who keeps on talking

I can't count the times I've been agonized by you
Totally unaware of what you put me through

You better shut your face an keep your claptrap to yourself
I barely know you so why would you waste my time with needless stories
Don't talk to me cause I got this smalltalk aversion
Don't talk to me cause I got this smalltalk aversion

Sunk deeply in thoughts, brain wave on its way
My mind at peace, balanced and concentrated
When suddenly nerve-racking hell breaks loose
Your voice inside my head haunts me beyond salvation

I can't count the times I've been agonized by you
Totally unaware of what you put me through

You better shut your face an keep your claptrap to yourself
I barely know you so why would you waste my time with needless stories
Don't talk to me cause I got this smalltalk aversion
Don't talk to me cause I got this smalltalk aversion
Track Name: Tomorrow's Been Yesterday
You’re stardust on my skin, in the valley of tears,
naked and hopeless but always without fear,
I failed to save you, to ease your pain,
much left unspoken, still hear you call my name

Tomorrow's been yesterday
Will there ever be another day without you?

Your worn out bleeding heart, too tired to beat,
broken to pieces, needed me to feel complete,
You saw it coming, were not afraid to go,
left all the secrets, that no one else would know

I stray through endless time until our stars again align

Tomorrow's been yesterday
Will there ever be another day?
Tomorrow's been yesterday
Will there ever be another day without you?

O amanhã já foi ontem
Será que haverá algum dia
Sem ti? Sem ti

Never without you
