about

Welcome to the Extended Edition of the eponymous 4th album from CYGNOSIC.
Originally released in 2014 and also variously known as "The Black Album", "Pitch Black" or "Cygnosic 4.0", although never achieving the attention achieved by previous album "Fire And Forget" musically (unsurprisingly) it does not disappoint.
Fans of what has now become CYGNOSIC's instantly recognisable style will find everything they have always loved and more in the distinctive dark electro on offer here. This, truly, definitively, IS "CygnosiC".
Yet as with "Fire And Forget" before it, for this his 4th album Greek songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Georg Psaroudakis has introduced new iterations into his mathematically-composed electronic music, reflecting perhaps an increasing interest in more traditional sounds - ranging from the harpsichord arpeggios of the COIL-esque "We" (a feel pre-figured by the closing instrumental passage "Until Glory" on "Fire And Forget") to the 80s goth guitar of "Under The Rain" and “Real Thoughts”.
With nods like this to THE SISTERS OF MERCY - and to PARADISE LOST or TOOL with the sound and structure of album-opener "The Key" and depressive "A Place In The Sun" - Psaroudakis reaches back to his pre-CYGNOSIC metal roots to present us once more with something similar yet different to his previous offerings, alongside poppier uptempo electro cuts like "Now Is The Time" or “Miles Away” and the signature slow grind of "Pitch Black".
Reflective lyrically and aesthetically perhaps of a particularly dark period in the artist's life, we now bring "CygnosiC" back in an extended edition which incorporates the "Grey" club mix of "The Key" and the ROTERSAND remix of "The Key" which both originally featured on the only single to be taken from this album...
"CygnosiC - Extended Edition" is available both digitally and on CD - with the first 100 copies only released in a breathtakingly beautiful black digipak with spot-gloss finish...

Track Name: The Key
THE KEY

I came alone
Just like the day we met
Don’t say I don’t regret
I know I should have paid more

For the might and the pride
With faith inside my heart
As the key

Inside a hole
Being blind - it is a fact
For every former act
It would be easier to run

For the might and the pride
With faith inside my heart
As the key
Track Name: Under The Rain
UNDER THE RAIN

And if I apologize
Through my fallout
I found the strength to push myself
For stepping out

Under the rain
I will remain

Bounded by silence
Consumed by pain
Come, strike
For I am ready now
To break these chains

Under the rain
I will remain

Bounded by silence
Consumed by pain
Come, strike
For I am ready now
To break these chains
Track Name: Miles Away
MILES AWAY

I’ve lived enough
Where egos rose
My eyes are closed
On lust and pose
Inside of me
I feel your weight
I can’t turn back
I’ll just look straight

The time is up
For grudge and greed
Where people stab
For things achieved
Hate is your weapon
That you can bring here to sway
For I will be miles away

And I don’t mind
What people say
I saw my past
To find my way
Over their hate
Above their sins
My purest goal
Straight to my dreams

The time is up
For grudge and greed
Where people stab
For things achieved
Hate is your weapon
That you can bring here to sway
For I will be miles away
Track Name: Now Is The Time
NOW IS THE TIME

You’ve been away
For so long
Until you saw
There is no road

You let the years
Passing by
Don’t be afraid
For now it’s the time

You’ve been away
For so long
Led by mistakes
Without brakes

You hid the truth
Deep inside
I want you know
I am here by your side
Track Name: Pitch Black
PITCH BLACK

Dark clouds
And rain
Are all inside my veins

I hear
The shore
The wind is telling more

The stars
Are bright
I am blinded by this light

The sea unleashed
Pitch black from the Abyss

On top
The mount
It whispers from the ground

The sky turned red
To speak inside my head

Inside the sun
I met the wisest man

The moon
Glass-made
Will watch until we fade
Track Name: A Place In The Sun
A PLACE IN THE SUN

I saw my work is done
For my place in the sun

How I got deceived
Burned under my skin

And this I’ve done to you
Unclean unseen untrue

How I got deceived
Burned under my skin

I sensed the truth was near
And how I lived in fear

How I got deceived
Burned under my skin
Track Name: We
WE

We touched the light
And took its grace
We brought the sun
To every place

We saw the moon
When first appeared
We held the truth
Throughout the years

And still
We are here

We changed the world
And formed its shape
We led our foes
To their escape

We came and passed
Through joy and fear
At world’s demise
We are not the ones to disappear
Track Name: Promachos
PROMACHOS

Goddess of Light
Place us under your wing
Foes are at sight
Strike with your mighty shield

In hell we dive
It seems we can’t survive

Goddess of Light
Come show us what was taught
We’ve been at night
So long that we forgot

In hell we dive
It seems we can’t survive

Goddess of Light!
Goddess of Light!

Goddess of Light
Lend us your brightest spear
Come forth and smite
Before our deepest fear
Track Name: Underskin
UNDERSKIN

Spread out and brightened
Like city lights
Malicious deeds
For lower needs
Craving for power
On every act
Vicious and hollow
Being here to distract

Alright
The beast is the sin
That crawls underskin

Shaped by kindness
Shows no remorse
We came to those
Without a cause
Being surrounded
As we become
The worthless kind
That comes in the mind

Come on
The beast is the sin
That crawls underskin
Track Name: Unleash Your Rage
UNLEASH YOUR RAGE

Behind your acts
There is no single trace

Unleash your rage

Remove your mask
So we can see your face

Unleash your rage

Behind your acts
There is no single trace

Unleash your rage

Remove your mask
So we can see your face

Unleash your rage
Track Name: Real Thoughts
REAL THOUGHTS

Behind the wheel
You drove yourself
To power
Powered by me
And by my will to be

Inside a cage
I tried to make you see
The inner me
For I was blind and weak

Today I read your real thoughts for me
Your naked truth has been revealed to see
