about

CONFRONTATIONAL Sardinia, Italy

"A monolithic, spooky album that evokes images of both the dance floor and the horror movie screen... I give A DANCE OF SHADOWS 9 stars out of 10, because it not only shows growth, but also a really polished sense of purpose. CONFRONTATIONAL intends to confront you, and what he will show you may frighten you… but only until you come to love it for the art that it is." Bryan Eddy, NewRetroWave.com ... more

Track Name: In The Line Of Fire
IN THE LINE OF FIRE
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

standing in the line of fire
in a dream you can't remember
you're out searching for the answers
to the questions you won't ask

as the city falls in darkness
shadows dance in celebration
burning fears and vindication
every freedom has its price

will you stand in line?

sold out cheap to revolution
in a war that's always raging
we're all drowning in a nightmare
as the kingdom marches on

and the night seems neverending
and the sirens keep on wailing
every lie will stand against us
as the fire burns inside

will you stand in line?

in the line of fire
Track Name: Without Fear
WITHOUT FEAR
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

we will shine together
in the darkest night
we will dream forever
in the blinding light
we will burn together
burn for our sins
we will bleed forever
in this sea of dirt

and we will be without fear
we will be without fear

we shall be forever
in the name of love
we shall die together
the only truth untold
we could thrive forever
holding on to hope
but lies and greed still
run the scheme of things as we go on

we shall be without fear

we will be without fear
Track Name: Stand Your Ground (Feat. Tony Kim)
STAND YOUR GROUND
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

people under pressure
standing on the line
living under fire
ready to collide
people on the wire
crashing on the floor
pushing under pressure
ready to let go

so stand your ground tonight
on your feet and fight
face your fear tonight

people on the news
everybody lying
people on the screen
living in a dream
people under pressure
everybody tries
people under pressure
breaking down to cry

so stand your ground tonight
on your feet and fight
face your fear tonight

(lead guitars: Tony Kim)
Track Name: Tanit
TANIT
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

she wears the red crown
she haunts your dreams
she knows your weakness
she won't forgive

she moves in quietly
along the dusk
what she desires
seeks for her lust

the moon is rising
her eyes now shine
she's born of blood and storm
and now she claims your life

she comes with the shadows
she reigns in hell
the crescent moon is hers
for her to cast a spell

the daughter of dagon
she will never die
she thrives on anger
and lives through sacrifice

tanit
Track Name: Keep Faith (Feat. Hélène De Thoury)
KEEP FAITH
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

nights awake
lost in a maze
crystal stars above us
silence everywhere

nights ablaze
dancing in the dark
running in the shadows
longing for some trust

so we must keep faith
we must keep faith

nights alone
standing by the phone
someone in the distance
someone passing by

nights and days
maybe nothing is in vain
all we are is simple
all we need is light

so we must keep faith
we must keep faith

(additional vocals: Hélène De Thoury)
Track Name: The Night Is Done
THE NIGHT IS DONE
(music & lyrics by M. Usai)

we roam through desolation
we fight our wars alone
we feel the desperation
these wicked times have brought
yet we hold on to the hope

the night is done
the dawn will come

we never should have trusted
this world that thrives on lies
its armies clashing madly
and yet we're here, on the line
'til we see the end of night

the night is done
the dawn will come
