XARGON If you are looking for a synergy of dark-synth and metal, look no further. Elay Arson is a master of blending these two great styles of music seamlessly together, to create a dark work of imagination. The inclusion of cultural themes here is refreshing. Favorite track: Masauwu, Skeleton Man.

Leo Stableford Very, very cool album, cruising the line between a straight out concept album and just being a rocking good time. You can know that the basis for the album was North American myth or not, it doesn't change your appreciation of the work and its flavour one bit. Great stuff. Favorite track: Mescalero Prophecy.

Track Name: Masauwu, Fire Keeper
Long ago, there was Masauwu
The spirit of death
Earth God
Master of The Fourth World
Overseer to The Fifth Gate
and the keeper

The keeper of fire
Track Name: Masauwu, Skeleton Man
It was believed that Masauwu had a handsome face
But no one knew for certain
For he wore a heavy mask
The people called him The Skeleton Man
Because of the mask's appearance
And because he was the spirit of death

Because of this terrifying mask
Masauwu was forced to roam the Earth
In solitude
