Enjoy it while it lasts is riddled with searing lead guitars, virtuosic synths, and a lot of complex layers of instruments from all over the world. Musically it is progressive rock, but definitely has a lot of melodicism and accessible hooks to the point that you could almost call it progressive pop.

After raving reviews, interviews and comments in magazines, internet, radio attention and world wide sales, I thought it's time to share it with you on Bandcamp as well.

Track Name: The Final Frontier
Outer space the final frontier
To travel light years, volunteer
An endless silent space to explore
We’ll boldly go where no one’s gone before
Track Name: How Wrong
I tried to be your friend,
I couldn’t play that strategy
You think no-one loves you
How wrong can you be?
Track Name: Dance the Night Away
Dance the night away, flyin’ to the milky way
Home- a million miles away, I sing my cry of love for you
Track Name: In the Forest
While there’s a chance,
you’ll fi nd your afterland
Still there’s a chance,
you’ll need a helping hand
Track Name: You Never Look
You never looked over your shoulder
You never thought you would get older
When you can see right from wrong
A lifetime seems so long
Track Name: Warchild
Don’t forget the child you were
Without care he won’t last long
Please forget the man you’ve known,
he is dead and that’s a fact
Track Name: Civilization Number IX
We’re walking on thin ice, gonna lose this paradise
When 999 hits the wall, the axe is gonna fall
Once upon a time this was Civilization number IX
Track Name: Ulumka'an - Birds of Heaven
The long awaited “end” of the Mayan calendar is here.
Some fear that 2012 will bring a cataclysmic end
for mankind, while others anticipate a moment of
expanded consciousness and world peace.
Maybe extraterrestial visiters in Chariots of Fire
will open the Stargate... Or is it a fundamental
misunderstanding of the Mayan calendar
and all meaningless hype?
Track Name: Keep the Faith
Never got a chance to say a real goodbye
So long, so far, high above the sky
Even when we cry, I’ll sing this song of mine
To comfort me
Track Name: How I Love My iPad
The local soon becomes the global -
I talk and walk and you hear every word
and the global soon becomes the local -
Just give it some electrifying dope
Oh, iPad I love you so much!
Track Name: Golden Day's - Strange Kind of Song Revisited
You know these are the golden days
Freedom to say anything you want
No one will stop you cuz nobody’s listening
Lost in a golden haze
So golden, so much so fast
A chorus a billion voices deep
Compassion disguises personal gain
This golden day, enjoy it while it lasts!
Track Name: Enjoy It While It Lasts
When all changes come and pass
I say the best years of my life fade away
All the green leaves make a brand new autumn
And the winter of my life arrives
But every exit is an entrance to somewhere else!
