about

“I Saw The Deep are heavily influenced by Mastodon, TOOL, Baroness and The Mars Volta amongst others. Well these influences shine through on their brilliant and astonishing debut album – “Astronavigation”. This is a 12 song 60 minute thrill ride which takes you to the vortex of space and beyond.

Imagine if all those brilliant bands started jamming together or release an album as a supergroup. Well Astronavigation would be the crazed result. This is jaw-dropping stuff.”
thesludgelord.blogspot.com (UK)


“…if you can hear in your mind something that mixes the heavy riffs of Mastodon, the trance-inducing vocals of Alice in Chains, the mysticism of The Tea Party and the psychedelic sensibilities of early Pink Floyd, you might be on the right track for describing I Saw the Deep. All of that combined in a tight sounding package that does not meander around aimlessly makes for a singularly entertaining listen for this reviewer.”
metaldisciple.com US)


"..I Saw The Deep is incredibly inspiring. For listeners who do not always want to stay within the walking paths of rock and metal and like to go on a musical journey into the seemingly impenetrable wilderness, I Saw The Deep is definitely recommended.”

Track Name: Phantom Island
Drowning in a sea of visions
We're sailing towards the edge of reason

The waves call out my name
The waves call out my name
They call out my name

Deceived by the dead, by the rules they have written
By fall of night we all will be gone

Row!

We're near the edge, now go...
We're near the end now, we're home

Call out my name...

Sailing to the edge of the world
Track Name: Astronavigation
Searching the horizon for a sign
Gazing at the stars in hopes of salvation

Don't try to save me
You need to save yourself

Drifting to a higher state of mind
Enchanted by the fire and its final hour

Don't try to save me
You need to save yourself

Don't try to save me
You need to save yourself
We don't belong here
You'd better save yourself

Don't try to save me
You'd better save yourself
Astronavigation
I need to save myself

Save me from myself
Save me from my own hell
Track Name: Time, The Tyrant
Time rewinds and folds itself within my hands
No reward when I depart, no amends.
Lift me up in radiance, I awake
Into the abyss I stare, endless mare

A raging storm in the wake of a saviour
triggers odd behavior down to my every cell

Step into the void, revel in weightlessness
Sink in silent waters that now turn to red
Arms are rivers, tentacles in liquid form
Mind and matter now collide, dispersing waves
Time has lost its grip on me and so has space..

A raging storm in the wake of a saviour
triggers odd behavior down to my every cell

A wager between god and a mirror..
Ages gone and we still run away from it all
and we still run away from it all....

Tyrant time marches on
Rising tide washes all

A raging storm in the wake of a saviour
triggers odd behavior down to my every cell

Time..
Tide..
Track Name: Scarlet Skies
I'm standing on the edge of light
Darkness soon to consume me
You've found new ways to lie
But you could not fool me

I'm waiting
I'm craving
I'm waiting
I'm clinging
Decaying

You'll never know where I have been in dreams
You'll never know what I have seen
You'll never walk the path with naked feet
You'll never follow me down...

I see a scarlet sky ignite in rain
and I feel colliding waters cover me
as I kneel and melt into the crimson veil
A world unseen unfolds behind the in-between

I'm walking through a maze of trees
As old as ancient memories
Creatures hide beneath fallen leaves
Feels like death is embraced here

I'm waiting
I'm craving
I'm waiting
Decaying
Contemplating

You'll never know where I have been in dreams
You'll never know what I have seen
You'll never walk the path with naked feet
You'll never follow me down..

I see a scarlet sky ignite in rain
and I feel colliding waters cover me
as I kneel and melt into the crimson veil
A world unseen unfolds behind the in-between

I'm waiting
I'm craving
Decaying
I'm waving goodbye

You'll never know where I have been in dreams
You'll never know what I have seen
You'll never walk the path with naked feet
You'll never follow me down..

Goodbye
Track Name: The Djinn
Cold blooded heart
tearing me apart
Figures in the sand
dancing in the wind
Downworlder
Swaying shadows burn
Speak to me, oh sun
Before I turn to dust

Creatures of the night crawling in despair
Shadows on the rise
With sharpened blades came sweet silent..

Sleep in severed arms
They will keep you warm
Hunted by the ones from hollowed undergrounds
A serpentine mirage motions me to watch
As bodies intertwine into an infernal device

Creatures of the night crawling in despair
Shadows on the rise
With sharpened blades came sweet silent sleep...

Strangest flesh divides
Serpent’s mesh invites
Don’t drink from the well
Cursed by ancient spells
Pierced from within
Dagger of the Djinn...
Track Name: Oneironaut
I’ve bred the strangest soul along the path of rage, behold
His arms spread like branches on a dead tree
His legs buried deep like roots into the earth
A landscape unfolds before my...

My eyes
How far can you see
Oneironaut
How far will you go

Followed the marks of silver, now turned to gold
The gyroscope signals
There is no hope

My eyes
How far can you see
Oneironaut
How far will you go

I hover in empty space
Breathe slowly
Uncover
Into deep sleep I navigate

Gravity no longer us holds
Hold on

My eyes
How far
Oneironaut
Track Name: Secrets Of The Blue
The Great Reveal before the fall
Made of steel and standing tall
My mind was tortured, my veins severed

The loss of you tore me apart
Fear now holds the king's card
Dwell in the past

Dive into the deepest dark
Find your way into its heart
My lungs are clear

It's the calm that drags me down
The silent blue that tunes me out
I'm not waking up to find my dreams severed
Forget the past, forget me not
Grab my hand, I'm reaching out
No, I won't sink, I'm light as a feather
Track Name: He Who Saw The Deep
Followed the shoreline until night turned to day
And I'm waiting and waiting for you
Wasting the hours given to me by a sage
As I'm wasting and wasting away
Calling the kings and queens by name as I sing
As I sing and I sink as my sorrow crashes in waves
But tomorrow this beauty will fade into a haze
Light gives way to grey

Fall into sleep as I hide in my haven, the shade
Fading and fading away
Current once dormant,
now pulls me into a delayed transmission
I wish for my sorrows to crash into waves
But tomorrow this beauty will fade into a haze
Light gives way to grey

Descend into madness
A city of light
Immersed in a capsule constricted by time
A fountain of sadness surrounded by fire
How empty this vessel
How hollow this shrine

Wasting the hours, surrendered, oblivious today
Fall into the center, I crawl into space again
Magic words you say, ceiling gives way to the sky
Absolving my sin, day gives way to grey
Track Name: Spira Solaris
Secrets and worlds between
revealed in velvet shades
I’ve seen the canvas paint itself
The cry of dawn in red.

In red....

Light of fire dictates the dance
The fold inwards begins,
imploding like the stars
Spoken to the ancient sons
of planets left for dead
We were left for dead

The spiral has no end
The hour has come to enhance
Senses are heightened at last
Delusions are shattered to shreds

I’m seeing red
I see red...
Track Name: Of Death And Dying
Living in an artificial world
All my friends were sucked into the void
Sleep and her half-brother death are home

Lay beside me
Come and take me home

When I lay my head to sleep
Would you come and rest with me
We will bathe in a lake of dreams
Floating down the endless stream
When I lay my head to sleep....

Sleep and her half-brother death are home
No more tales of the living to be told
House of holy ghosts, you will walk alone

Lay beside me
Come and take me home
I am coming home
Track Name: Saturniid (The Visit)
You've come to bring me a message
I wasn't ready to receive
You flew from far, far away
Where no one ever has set foot...

Open the door, open the door
I'll take what's mine and be gone

Time is passing by and I'm learning to read
signs once so overwhelming
I'm not ready to leave just yet

Open the door..

I'm gliding through a passage
A narrow glimpse of light
Open the door, open the door
I'll take what's mine and be gone


Open the door, open the door
Take what's mine and be gone
