original_octi It's amazing to have a sequel to something in the form of music. Story telling through music is done by Aviators so very well, better than any other in fact. Stargazers is the perfect sequel to Building Better Worlds. It's classic-rock/post modern/synth-rock feel is such a wonderful genre to chill out to. Especially with the current atmosphere that society seems to be dwelling in right now. Favorite track: Acid Rain (feat. Tarby).

villyidol Wow! This is Aviators at the peak of his powers. It just doesn' t get any better. Although he may surprise me there. Here he unites Industrial Rock with Synthwave to absolute perfection.
This is not only my favourite Aviators album, it's also my favourite Synthwave album, by some distance and one of my top 5 albums all-time.
How to pick a favourite track though, when there's one killer-track after the other? In the end I chose 'Apocalypse State of Mind'. But there were at least 8 others in the running. Favorite track: Apocalypse State of Mind.

about

Stargazers is an post-apocalyptic concept album about civilization rebuilding after times of war, and starting anew. The themes presented are directly following 2014's "Building Better Worlds", and the conflict and resolution that the album portrayed. Musically the album is a turn to early 90's influenced New Wave, with songs like "Oblivion" and "Losing Control" echoing bass-driven anthems of the era.

CONTENT WARNING: Stargazers is about disaster, death, and apocalyptic scenarios. While hope is found in many stories told on the album, some songs contain violence, descriptions of war, and in the case of "Remains", a dark look into a killer's mind. If you tend to be sensitive to such issues, please tread lightly.

Track Name: Oblivion
Sinners from their homes abroad
Servants of a lesser god
They thought it stood to reason
To crucify their treason
Redemption came from triggers pulled
Young and weak thrown to the wolves
I feel them
I feel them
One in all, and all for some
The desperate carry loaded guns
Peace was lost to violence
The righteous stood in silence
Inaction of those who knew
Betrayed the remaining few
I fear them
I fear them

Let the broken heroes rise
Let the victors take their prize
No one wins when justice dies
War has let this age begin
It's where we've gone and where they've been
What a state that we're in
Here in oblivion

Bitter nightmares, sweetened lies
Genocide was in their eyes
Screams drowned out by cheering
The end was surely nearing
No one dared to take a stand
Eye for eye and hand in hand
I see them
I see them
Puppet strings pulled from above
Money spent to buy more love
Kings in crystal towers
Bring these final hours
Citizens with spirit left
Brought to trial and tried for theft
I'll free them
I'll free them

When the bombs fell, then we knew
The values we believed weren't true
Growing shadows, crimson skies
Hate would win as heroes died
Spared were some, but very few
We paid the price, and so will you
No one's safe tonight
No one's safe tonight
Oblivion awaits us all
We take control, embrace the fall
Making the corrupted right
Chasing after dying light
Change the timeline, change the course
Take them on with damning force
Through fire we're taking flight
Through fire we're taking flight
Track Name: Welcome to Paradise
Where will you be when walls give way
When it's crashing down, and falls away
A wishful thought won't take you far
When hell on earth is where you are
Win or lose you pay the price someday

Welcome to paradise
For thieves and kings alike
The wasteland tolls
Our mortal souls tonight
Game on, it's time to shine
Our lives are on the line
In ruins we strive
We'll never thrive
Without the will to survive

It's a brutal curse to call this home
Where the good men die and evil roams
A thousands lives claimed by this land
The passing cleanse, the fall of man
Do or die, we fight to survive

Where will you be when we rise again
When our enemies will meet their end
It's a whisper turned a battle cry
We're still here 'cuz we refuse to die
Track Name: Apocalypse State of Mind
Where can I bury all of my suffering
Casualties of poison and pride
Where is the line between losing everything
And giving it all to say that you've tried

When I dared to dream of something greater
I flew away into the sky
Nothing's going to fill the space between you and I
And I felt the world grow so much colder
As we drifted away over time
Living in the past in our apocalypse state of mind

Where can I find some kind of a remedy
A cure for my pain, a rest for my eyes
Where can I pray, when nothing means anything
In some kind of cage no God could devise

Now can you hear the sounds of a melody
Playing a tune, to soften our hearts
We can move on past all of the memories
The lapses in faith, that time will impart
Take me to places beyond our biosphere
Into the unknown, where we could reside
Find me in winter when all the paths are clear
In cities of ash, we're healing in time
Track Name: Immortal
We walk along this ashen trail
Through war and fire
They doubted freedom would prevail
We're climbing higher
When the broken call
I will stand up tall
It's all over, there's change in the air
If we fall tonight
We will shine a light
Upon justice, to make this game fair

We are immortal
When destiny reigns
And no one can stop this
Hellbound train
When history listens
Will they know our names?
We are immortal
'cuz Legends remain

We make our own way, we rebuild
The cities razed
Our prophecy is self-fulfilled
For better days
When the broken call
I will stand up tall
It's all over, there's change in the air
If we fall tonight
We will shine a light
Upon justice, to make this game fair

We rise where heroes fell
Inside a man made hell
Through streets of blood and dust
Where weapons turn to rust
We're the fire
We're the change
We're the lost ones
We're the storm
We're the last
Ammunition
Through the smoke
Through the bruised
Fallen brothers
Pushing on
To save all
Of the others
Track Name: Chaos Theory
When I called you from the darkness
When I whispered in the rain
The cries unheard were cries of my own pain
It's a monster's cell I lived in
When you left me here alone
When you left it all behind and took your throne

Our one last chance
Deliverance
Was thrown away when you
Left me here like the rest
Now it's my time
Vengeance is mine
And here I think I might just
Put my chaos theory to the test

Could you bear to see me like this?
Could you look at what you've done?
You've stepped into a game that can't be won
Now you see what I've been thinking
Now you've stared into the sun
Now I'm going to kill them all, except for one

When broken hearts
Start to fall apart
Malice takes takes hold of the damned
Your words alone
Your heart of stone
Made me into what I am
I'm not insane
I'm victimized
Just scarred and bent on
Burning everything before your eyes
Now watch me do
What I do best
Unafraid of you
I'll put my chaos theory to the test
Track Name: Wolves
I have seen the better days
But now they're far away
Lost beneath the sand
I have lost the ones I knew
And barely made it through
This broken, barren land

Breathing
I embrace the feeling
Of despair that keeps me
Standing on my own
I'm no hero
Starting back at zero
It's an unfair world so
To the wolves I'm thrown
To the wolves I'm thrown

I, the messenger of loss
Have traveled at a cost
To save their legacies
I, the stranger in the wind
A man of many sins
Alone with memories

Will we meet again
Somewhere at the end
Somewhere far beyond this place
It's a hopeless cause
But I'll fight the odds
For a chance to see your face
Track Name: Game Over
Hold your breath we're going under
Taking on the rain and thunder
I would take on anything for you
Split screen co-operation
You are my motivation
I'll watch your back, I always do

We'll make it out alive
We're side by side
When monsters block the way we'll take them down
We're getting closer
Just ahead
We're not out yet
With you I think that we've already won
It's game over

When we have been defeated
No other wins are needed
I'm feeling like a winner next to you
We'll keep on getting stronger
With these battles growing longer
We've got a chance to see this through

Give this level one more try
Make it out before we die
Never let it get the best
We can still complete the quest
Hold me close and watch behind
Look around and you will find
We're halfway to the end already
Take this potion, level two
Now we don't know what to do
Facing new obstacles here
Trying to combat our fear
Game over, we're out of lives
Let's just give it one more try
We've still got each other, baby
Track Name: Ammunition
The broken cities we knew are gone
We're taking the place where we belong
We rise tonight
We're born to fight
Not rebels but defenders
Of our rights
Through clouds of smoke, and the burning skies
Singing out with our freedom cries
We couldn't see
We're meant to be
The soldiers who
Set our brothers free

We are the ammunition
Bullets set on shooting down the lies
This is the acquisition
Taking back the silenced, stolen rights
We're making history tonight

The faces that we wore have changed
We're marching through a nation all too strange
From red and white
To envied green
Words constructed
By the men behind the screen
We take our place now to restore
The purpose that we shared before
Our path ends here
Now make them fear
Our cause to wipe the record clear

When we all
Stand as one
We have power
We can't run
We're taking on a sea of faces
Raise your flags
Lift your voice
Take your side
Make your choice
To move along to better places
Track Name: Who's Going to Stop Me Now?
Here I am, waiting for the outcome
Of a struggle that has grown so tiresome
Whispers in my mind keep taunting me
I believe that I found a purpose
But they say that I don't deserve this
Too late now, the end is where I'll be

We're setting sail tonight
Who knows where we're going
But I will take the chance
Just take my hand and fly
Eyes on the skies ahead now
And never look down
I'm feeling brave here
I see what is coming
And it's been worth the ride
Free of our fears
The end's in sight
Who's going to stop me now?

Break the ice, clear the air, let's get this straight
No one knows how it hurts when they spread hate
Every word cuts deeper than the last
Here I am, left in broken parts now
No one sees how it stings, when you're left out
But we're just pushing on to better days

When the sun won't shine
It's chance for you and I
Sing in the rain, and make the best
We face whatever comes next
We can't give up now
We'll make our mark somehow
Take on the world with no regrets
Our song isn't over yet
Track Name: Meet You At The End
Break my heart and get it done
Take your shot, but don't you run
Away from me again
Away until the end
Take a chance, come back, you're safe
Chemistry you can't erase
From our own paradise
Our cold hearts filled with ice

Nobody wants to walk the road alone
We're ten thousand miles from home
And I don't want to disappear
Where do we go from here?
Nobody wants to play a useless part
In matters of the heart
I'm standing here so far away
I'll meet you at the end someday

Took a chance, you stole my heart
Left me here to fall apart
With you I walked through fire
The flames of our desire
Ghosts of what we used to be
Haunt my mind, and torture me
Voices from the past
Our days are fading fast

I'm breaking
We're fading
But you're not alone
One more try
For tonight
I can't do this on my own
Feels like after all this time
We should have known we'd be here tonight
But I can't let you give up on
Everything we had and we believed was gone
I need you to feel again
Meeting here somewhere at the end
I believe we can start anew
All I need to know is that I stand with you
Track Name: Requiem For The Hunter
The end has come and left us all
Nothing to break the fall
In pieces we all strive to walk again
Ruins and fragments make our homes
To rest my shattered bones
To heal the past, to make amends

I think it's beautiful
How poisoned skies remind me
I'm a ghost
Behind the veil
I think it's wonderful
How I lost the part of me
I need the most
Like I was born to fail

Another day just scraping by
No home or means to thrive
I'm hunting down a dream that burned away
I've buried far too many souls
The ones the wasteland stole
I should have known the light would start to fade

I can't contain the pain I feel
But if it doesn't hurt it isn't real
Living in the world ablaze
The hunt is over, I'm in chains
Track Name: Losing Control
I'm feeling watched
Like no one's on my side
And I confess
I feel the stress
We've got a problem to address
We're compromised
The truth unknown
A secret kept from me
The worst I fear
With traitors here
Our cause will slowly disappear
Into debris

One of us here's a glitch in the system
Someone's been hiding in plain sight
One of us set the gears in motion
Someone sent from the other side
To break us
Take us
On our knees
To sabotage
The movement we
Uphold
So I've been told
We're losing control

No soul to trust
Suspicions are my own
I won't let go
Until I know
Who's engineered this undertow
The threat unknown
I'll never let
All that we've fought for fall
It's all for naught
Until we've caught
The founder of this evil plot
They'll never take us all

Are you a traitor or have I lost my head
This creeping notion's got me torn into shreds
Is there a spy
Here passing by
Or is there more than meets the eye
I've lost control, I've lost my mind
Track Name: Acid Rain (feat. Tarby)
Hello, don't be shy
I'll take you to the sky
We'll fly away
To better days ahead
Hello, take my hand
There's poison in the sand
Don't worry I
Can purify
What's dead

I can't let you slip away
The world's in disarray
No one should have to stay
I will take away the pain
When only I remain
To feel the acid rain

Hello, I'm the wind
Guiding as you ascend
So far away
From better days ahead
Hello, I'm the one
The night sky and the sun
I breathe this air
In rivers running red

I'll take you away
To somewhere that the skies aren't quite so gray
I'll be your escape
The stars that lie above us will embrace
Track Name: Remains
Human minds
Frail and scared
Freed by death, and death is fair
Hopeless souls
Play a part
In my wicked work of art
Such relief
Every time
Taking life, to take what's mine
At the end
Here we lie
Here we're killers or we die

When the world was turned to gray
The hatred wouldn't go away
Resentment in chains
In the coldest of all hearts
A voice descends, the light departs
Madness remains

Play the game
Paint your scene
Taking this to the extreme
Masterpiece
Dark design
Your last moments, only mine
It's a need
Here in dust
Kill the world that stole from us
Take your place
Let it be
In my crimson symphony

I feel it in my bones
A need to be your god
A need to strike you down
When order disappeared
And madness took control
The conscience in me drowned
I want to be your guide
Into the afterlife
It's a gift, look past the pain like I do
I want to see your eyes
Just before your demise
When only fear remains inside you
Track Name: Sweet Dreams (Bonus Track)
Don't mind the noise outside the door
It's just a phantom, nothing more
No need to give yourself a scare
When you glance and no one's there
I don't want to have to hurt you
It's not your fault I felt his rage
Just a child about your age
But something drives me to this place
I can see him in your face
You'll never know the hell I've seen

Don't fear what's coming
We can't fight off the urge inside
It's dark and you're afraid of
The devils that come out at night
Let's make this easy
Soon you'll haunt these beasts you hated
No need for sleep tonight
Sweet dreams are overrated

I'm just a whisper in the void
No one's there, you're paranoid
I'm just a trick of your own mind
Blink your eyes once and you'll find
I'm just a ghost inside your head
Don't fear your fate that soon arrives
It's a deadly lullaby
You'll be with us very soon
Another spirit in the room
Take your place among the lost

You can't wake
From this dream
No one will hear you screaming
So hold on
For the ride
I'll take you with me tonight
This nightmare
This prison
Inside the suits we live in
Don't fear me
Together
We'll have sweet dreams forever
