the sun is setting on the horizon here comes the man in the white coat to cure all your delusions he's slowly taking his belt off and coming into your life the sun is setting on the horizon here comes the man on the white horse he is the larynx of your voice the water's boiling on the stove as your blanket falls to the floor the sun is setting on the horizon your lying naked next to your blanket your tears are falling free to the floor your body bruised your mind aching for the man, the man in the white coat the sun is setting on your horizon
James was a boylover, but that was the least of his sins he was just a random shepherd sent on a holy mission installed as a governor in a distant banana republic with so many boygirls amongst his ministers James felt like a real tsar the poor aborigines, loved him as their own, they even build him a monument, he spent his days, in mountains of snow, oh James, you're closer to god... the blood had spread into the living room they found him strangled in the bathroom both of his arms severed his eyes forever open poor brother James I can't hear you weep as you walk behind him he's dead, he's dead, poor brother James, he's dead. he's dead, boylover james he's dead!

the yellow peril of the Caucasian race, tataro-mongol with a Slavic face, the gastarbeiter plumber watching your mom, the last hope of the unpure white sun, The vulgar-bulgar from ancient Thrace the last descendant of the great Macedonian race the blood of Spartacus dances in me the eyes of Attila shine through me the future doesn't matter the past is where I live the future doesn't matter the past is all I have
Mr. Mrak 03:29
I can hear you breathing naked. with the lights off red lights dancing with the frequencies of the machines the waves crashing in my brain parallel with the tv's noise since you came into my life I can feel my body trembling veins pulsating the earth's crumbling Mr. Mrak let the darkness in Mr. Mrak turn the radiation on
he was Stefan The Vlach's son, he was an evil man and I waited a long time before I killed him I gave him a second chance I waited for him to change to find god and amend his ways but he kept on snitching and lying and publishing books written by the devil's left hand time went by the spring turned gray and old but Stefan The Vlach's son kept on being cruel spitting venom, blood and lies and ruining people's lives so I lit a candle and took matters into my hands called the carpenter and an hour later I drove by the stake was cross-shaped fit for a monster so I rented a room by the embassy with a small window aimed at the subway and then he came stefan the vlach's son oh may the lord forgive me now he's gone
Staroverets 02:28
староверец пещера копае черногледец времето дълбае а мъртвите мълчат слепи човеците пълзят староверец чернокапец старовремец черногледец смърт за света смърт за вашата земя приятел или змия цивилизация от тъга староверец чернокапец старовремец чернодрешковец
Doubts 03:43
I can hear the wail of a billion slaves on my way to Jerusalem in the land of the shadows under the forest of light I will stand before you on my way and if I lose track and if the crows steal my sight come and give me a piece of your light and help me find you in Jerusalem it took me a lifetime of blindness a century of too wrong and no right but somehow I found you on my way we drown my friend in doubts again we drown my friend in doubts again we drown my friend in doubts again and somewhere along the path far from the kingdom of fools she was sent by you to open the gates
No Passports 03:44
They push you towards indecision godlessness nihilism Hemofiliacs bathing in tears on the dancefloor of your revolution erase the time crawl back home cold and naked we sail under a white flag all your blood flows out of my heart all your blood flows out of my heart we sail under a white flag за нея ние се боримъ за нея ние мремъ no passports no borders no passports no borders no passports no borders between us
6000000words 06:02
different colored ties you lie on the bed motionless dim lights on red walls no words blank expressions glass of wine half full the door is open the wind blows through I have left six million words for you in the desert in the wasteland please put them together


The bulgarian band Voyvoda will release their second album "Iztok" on February 7th as a download, the vinyl issue will follow on 29th of June, 2012. Offered will be experimental sounds somewhere between post punk, cold wave and balkan komita folk.

As on the forerunner "The Confederacy" and the couple of EP's, the journey goes deep into the history of the balkans, back to devotional rebels and their commanders (called Voyvodas). During the trip you’re able to hear stories about devotion, respect, honor, love’s strength, fratricide, sorrow, betrayal, hope and despair, coated into a structure of lyrics reminding of a weird combination between Nick Cave, Johnny Cash and Hristo Silyanov.

Voyvoda’s sound is a combination of post punk, minimal and cold wave of the 80s, stirring balkan folklore and majestic eastern-orthodox chants.

The album "Iztok" will be available from February 7th 2012 on at afmusic and in all well-known download stores in high quality. Furthermore the band offers a "name your price"-download on bandcamp, while the first 30 persons, that pay 1 Euro or more will get a free promo CD of the album. On Jamendo, Dogmazic and some more download platforms the album will be available as a free download.
