Reviews for "Cremation Garden":

“Shadow Windhawk doesn't care what you think horror punk should be, he's too busy re-defining it on "Cremation Garden.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016.

"A beautifully haunting rock n' roll album with horror inspirations, including Dark Shadows and the touching "Sleep" dedicated to the late great Roddy Piper; Cremation Garden spins a stirringly macabre story as Shadow Windhawk travels the music spectrum - from the punk rock anthem "Graveyard Shock n' Roll" to the stunning ballad, "Mae". - HorrorHound Magazine, July 2016.

“..."Cremation Garden" serves to further cement Windhawk as a force to be reckoned within the horrorpunk scene.” - Dread Central, Sept. 2016.

“With "Cremation Garden", Shadow Windhawk has proven what many of us have known for quite some time: he is an absolute force to be reckoned with when it comes to the horrorpunk genre. This is a man who eats, sleeps and breathes horror, and that love comes through on every single track of this album." - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016

Ranked #2 of the 5 horror punk bands to look out for in 2016 by Dread Central - June 2016.

“The band brings a haunting tone to the music scene with Shadow Windhawk's own signature vocal style.” - HorrorHound Magazine, March 2016.

“In everything he does, Windhawk strives to take horror punk to audiences outside of any specific scene. You might say that he's emphasizing the 'punk attitude' in horror punk.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016.

“While the Misfits' influence can still be felt in the album's hooks and Windhawk's "woah-oh" croon, the sheer number of other styles that Windhawk brings out indicates that he's more than just another devilocked clone - from the brooding, heavy metal dirge of the Halloween 6-inspired "Curse of Thorn", to the bouncy 80s rock guitar on "Sleep", and "Mae", a gloomy acoustic homage to Near Dark with a sound reminiscent of both old-school power ballads and gothic rock.” - Rue Morgue Magazine, June 2016

“Do you like sex with death?”. “Yeah, so fuck off and die!”. Using one of the best (and rather underrated) quotes from the 1985 punk rock zombie classic Return Of The Living Dead, Graveyard Shock N’ Roll picks the pace back up, and doesn’t bother even attempting to relent in the slightest. This seems like a track that Windhawk was destined to write and perform. Not only is it the strongest track on "Cremation Garden", but it stands up there with the aforementioned Midian and 1428 as the greatest track to come out of Shadow Windhawk‘s twisted mind and talent.” - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016

“With no doubt whatsoever, "Cremation Garden" is in my view the best album that Shadow Windhawk has created to date.” - The Dog's Space, May 2016

“Since dropping on the scene, Shadow Windhawk's solo work has been on fire giving nods to the past while doing his own thing gaining fans worldwide. "Box Five" takes what we heard on Casket Spray and the "Never Dead" single, expanding beyond that while leaving you wanting more.” - Jekyll A. Hyde, May 2016

“Right from the first notes of Intro - Cremation, you get that familiar feeling of meeting with an old friend. Shadow Windhawk has always had a unique sound all his own, especially with his one of a kind vocal style, and that is what drives the new album. Windhawk pays tribute to The Phantom Of The Opera with Box Five, the first full song on the album, and it’s one hell of a way to blast the album off.” - Tom Holland's Terror Time, June 2016

Track Name: Intro: Cremation
Cremation

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

Here I lie
On a bed of straw I hear her cry
Underneath cold skin
Where my love lies

My heart is dead
Abandon hope

Close the casket
The flames are starving
Embrace the fire
With dream stained tears
The hands are turning past these ghostly years

These ghostly years

And I'm broken

I'm broken

I'm broken

I'm broken

Again
Track Name: Box Five
"Box Five"

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

some days my mind is blurred
by this haze of madness
and when I sleep below
long nights reveal a world that’s heartless
but when my tears are dried away
all that’s left are parts of me
pieced back together incomplete
oh sweet Christine, please sing for me

sing for me

as we wander through the cellars
a mile below the earth
wrapped in silk and grave dirt
this Phantom love still longs to be
and in my heart I feel her sing
hands to the organ, strike the keys

look what man’s hatred did to me
I am a monster that you fear
those whispers that you breathe

that you breathe

as we wander through the cellars
a mile below the earth
wrapped in silk and grave dirt
this Phantom love still longs to be
and in my heart I feel her sing
hands to the organ, strike the keys

look what man’s hatred did to me
I am a monster that you fear
those whispers that you breathe
discord notes, impassioned tone
the ravaged pain that paints my soul

as we wander through the cellars
a mile below the earth
wrapped in silk and grave dirt
my Phantom love still longs to be
and in my heart I feel her sing
hands to the organ, strike the keys

In box five I’ll always be
In box five where my love dreams
I am the whispers that you breathe
In box five I hear her sing

For me.
Track Name: Curse of Thorn
Curse of Thorn

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk.

black candles burn around us
in the sacrifice
the stench of blood upon the floor
her eyes burn into mine

bleed away, bleed away
by this sharpened blade
bleed away, bleed away
we grant the gift of death and rage

alright

black candles burn around us
in the sacrifice
the stench of blood upon the floor
her eyes burn into mine

I am a hollow vessel
my human form, forever feigned
I bear the mark of Thorn
and they call me The Shape

I am a hollow vessel
my human form, forever feigned
I bear the mark of Thorn
and they call me The Shape

The Shape

we are the guards in shadow
constellations guide our way
bring forth the cursed child
on Halloween, he’ll claim his place

bleed away, bleed away
by my sharpened blade
bleed away, bleed away
take now these gifts
for death you’ll pray

I am a hollow vessel
my human form, forever feigned
I bear the mark of Thorn
and they call me The Shape

I am a hollow vessel
my human form, forever feigned
I bear the mark of Thorn
and they call me The Shape


on Halloween, die by this blade
a cursed one, a star-bound slave
death has no name, but they call me The Shape

death has no name, but they call me The Shape

on Halloween, die by this blade
a cursed one, a star-bound slave
death has no name, but they call me The Shape

death has no name, but they call me The Shape

The Shape
Track Name: House of Dark Shadows
House of Dark Shadows

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk.

the storm surrounding casts dark shadows in the sky
her screams spill forward with the volume of the tide

hollowed out these open wounds
that still bleed softly
two centuries I’ve cried for you

my hands are black with all these stains
though the years have been unkind
my body will not age

the cold inside me paints the story of two lives
torn into violent halves
one enslaved, one made to die

In a fit of agony, I cried
when the witch cursed me
Angelique has sealed my doom

my hands are black with all these stains
and though the years have been unkind
my body will not age

this haunted earth we walk upon
we walk upon
this tortured blood that I crave
blood that I crave
this hateful world I feed upon
this hateful world

freed from the ancient graves

in the old house, I’ll wait for you
in the old house, my heart forever doomed
in the old house, I’ll dream of you
in the old house,

I’ll wait for you

the ghost who loved me
I'll wait for you
the ghost who loved me
I'll wait for you
the ghost who loved me

I'll wait for you

the ghost who loved me...
Track Name: Graveyard Shock n' Roll
Graveyard Shock n' Roll

alright

they’ve risen from their graves in pain
Trioxin spawns re-birth, beneath the burning cemetery rain
longing hunger in their eyes
and I’ll try to run and hide
if the dead don’t find me first, I will survive

I'm back from the grave
and ready to party
beyond these gates we play
forever rotting

graveyard shock n’ roll

inside the chapel where I wait
Tina screams in terror at my homicidal zombie rage
streaks of blood smeared on my face
nuclear heat wave comes
to cleanse the human race from time and space

I’m back from the grave
and ready to party
beyond these gates we play
forever rotting

woah-oh

graveyard shock n’ roll

woah-oh, woah-oh-oh
woah-oh, woah-oh

woah-oh, woah-oh-oh
woah-oh, woah-oh

woah-oh

ohhhhh

graveyard shock n’ roll…

Track Name: Sleep
Sleep

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

“Just when you thought you had all the answers, he changed the questions. This one’s for Hot Rod.” RIP (1954 - 2015)

We are the sleeping servants of a master race
Left all the poor to die like insects in the streets
They Live, We Sleep
And the truth will always hide
Police are in power, sleep forever - work and die

They Live, They Live
And they watch us all the time

They Live, They Live

This is police state paradise.

no independent thought
murder is your creed
these bodies piling high are nothin’ new to me
They Live, We Sleep
And the truth will always hide
Police are in power, sleep forever - work and die


They Live, They Live
And they watch us all the time
They Live, They Live
This is police state paradise

They Live
They Live
They Live

woah-oh-oh-oh

They Live
They Live

They Live….

GO GO GO

GO GO GO

GO GO GO

They Live, They Live
And they watch us all the time
They Live, They Live
This is police state paradise
They Live, They Live
Toxic water, poisoned lies
They Live, They Live
and they watch us all the time
They Live, They Live
time to reveal the lie
They Live, They Live

Now is the time to stand and fight
Track Name: Mae
Mae

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk.

I’ve lived in darkness for so long
my eyes can only see
in the night that loves me

I’ve killed in shadows all these years
this love I know is cold and stained
but in your eyes my heart has changed

near dark
I can feel in my veins
somewhere

near dark
where the godless ones will reign
forever

near dark

I’ve lived in darkness for so long
thought my spark had ceased to be
but your fire still walks with me

beyond the walls of sleep, in dreamless death we lie
our hands are intertwined as the sun begins to die

near dark
I can feel it in my veins
somewhere

near dark
where the godless ones will reign
forever

near dark

my blood for you
forever is our love in death

my blood for you
one kiss before that final breath

I’ll always be here….

somewhere

somewhere

somewhere

somewhere...

Outro: The Garden

Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk.

In the Garden
Where we lie in ashes

In the Garden
Where we lie in ashes

Dancing ashes
Dancing ashes

In the Garden

Dancing ashes
Dancing ashes

In the Garden...
