about

Released By ViciSolum Records (2018)

Rock pages (GR) – Music that’s too good. Compositions you want to hear again, melodies that stick to your mind, forty minutes filled with essential not unnecessary elements.

Lords of metal (NL) 87/100 – This is the ‘new’ progressive style we love! This band has enough own inventive ideas to be considered a welcome addition to the progressive scène. An amazing record!

Metal Temple 10/10 – They have firmly established themselves as accomplished and sophisticated songwriters with a stalwart sense of melody development that makes you ache for more. This album is the total package folks!

Metal1 9/10 – POEM has succeeded in creating an outstanding Progressive Metal album that raises the bar in this genre for 2018 very early on.

The PROG Mind 8/10 – Poem deserves your ears on this new album “Unique”.

Time For Metal 8/10 – Poem has proven with their third album that they can truly write really good songs.

Much Metal 8/10 – Every time I listen to ‘Unique’, I enjoy the experience.
Deep Beneath – Production and execution are, prospectively, brilliant. I believe that with this excellent work Poem surely level up and move even closer to a wider recognition.

Metalfan (NL) – There is not much to complain about and the Greeks can be proud of the new collection of songs, which always asks to be listened to again.

Art core magazine (GR) – There is not even one second that it is lost, in this album

Eclectic Shadows 9/10 – The album does not need recommendations, presentations or reviews to convince the last man on earth that it is here and is great .It stands for itself and it’s here to make you love it like I have.

Rockoverdose (GR) 90/100 – “Unique” is just another diamond. Already one of the most important albums of the year interacts with the heart and the soul of the listener.

Rockabulary (GR) 9/10 – “Unique” becomes an important point for the band’s career. It is the ‘golden’ ticket opens the doors with great ease for an international career.

Rock in Athens (GR) – “Unique” is full with memorable moments and is now one of the most important releases of the year.

Live reviewer (NL) 4/5 – It is clearly a matured album that gets better every time you listen to it.

Sweden Rock Magazine (SE) 8/10 – These guys can certainly handle their instruments and they also clearly seem to know a lot about 90s metal. The anger and darkness ever-present in their music flirts with Tool and similar groovy bands of said decade. The combination is fairly exquisite.

The progspace (DE) 4/5 – “Unique” showcases what Poem can do very well: groovy riffs, interesting compositions and incredible middle sections that redefine every song. This is a worthy album for prog fans who don’t mind to have a lot of grooves and pounding drums.

Metal hammer (GR) 8/10 – Poem manages to match the dynamics, keep the interest unchanged. They know how to create complete songs.

Rock Area (PL) 9/10 – Emotionally inspired, fantastic production. Music that wakes up the interest of the listener.

Rocking.gr (GR) 4,5/5 – An album, which allows them to expand their audience and put then on the proper way for further recognition.

Metalirium (CZ) 8/10 – An emotionally diverse album, grows like a lively, progressively evolving organism that has its own life to live.

Jupiter Variation – While Skein Syndrome was excellent, this one is almost perfect ! Their progressive metal provides a personal and distinct character to their compositions, finally making Unique really unique!

Metal Na Lata (BR) 8/10- The great variety in harmonies and riffs!

Acta infernalis – Deathliger’s Reviews (FR) – Really different from a song to another, Unique is a really good album. Musicians took time to give an identity which could only be developed by them through sometimes dark sometimes technical riffs.

Track Name: False Morality
On my own, in my comfort,
wishing I could slip away.

Hear you scream, I
feel like you're asking for help,
anything that you long for.

You’ve been loathing everything that I've become,
you had to save me from everything that I've become.
Run away, go away, fuck you.

I hate that feeling when I’m sad,
you ask me what’s wrong, but I cannot reply.
Sadness, is my friend,
you always wronged me, don’t pretend.

You’ve been loathing everything that I've become,
you had to save me from everything that I've become.
Run away, go away, running.
Track Name: My Own Disorder
Hey you failed and now you have to pay
for everything you got against me.
Inside my hate and my regret
for let your will to overtake me.
Fed up! fake excuses no more,
kill you for my sanity.
I hear your screaming and your cry,
I’m planning now my saviour's revenge
again, afraid of myself.

God, my soul is weak
it took so long for me to learn
that it was wrong to hide between
two minds that live for a kill.
Now my body feels safe
I'm trapped in my own disorder.

Take my wooden heart,
my differences, my empathy
and lock it up behind the bars
I wanna breathe what you feel.
Now my body feels safe
I’m trapped in my own disorder.

Wait for my death to bring the most
of agony and terror to you.
Raving pain, erosion of my soul
the key to hold me trapped inside you.
Failing, steal away my control,
relieving pain once again.
I hear your screaming and your cry,
I’m planning now my saviour's revenge
again, afraid of myself.

God, My soul is weak
it took so long for me to learn
that it was wrong to hide between
two minds that live for a kill.
Now my body feels safe
I'm trapped in my own disorder.

Take my wooden heart,
my differences, my empathy
and lock it up behind the bars
I wanna breathe what you feel.
Now my body feel safe
I'm trapped in my own disorder.

Now you're breathless for me,
my vengeance to you is disorder.
Don’t cry it’s over.
Track Name: Four Cornered God
Say: “the world is awake”
and fill with radiance my nights... lies...
float upon me, so that I forget
I'll never survive

Embracing touch and sight,
feel to embody in the night... while
all that I want is what I forgot
I don't want to survive

Way down, way down again,
throw myself to feel
security,
I am lost

Fade down, fading away
throw my self to feel
reality,
I am lost

If our hearts can not see
then we will all go wrong.
Bring pain and pleasure
and vanquish all reasons.
Track Name: Discipline
Pay for my sins, suffering as discipline
my confession, to go on living

Where can you be found into my misery
wishing for me the tears of sweetness

Come and save me, your way to prevent
my own suffering

Come, enslave me, your way to prevent
my own suffering

Dedication occupies my mind you say
but in my case my heart is my brain

Meditation on scripture may not work for me
Won’t accept what our God revealed to us

You hate the life I’m fighting for
You give me drugs to hang on
Through myself to god

Can you face that
I wanna kill, I wanna fly
Alone…

Come and save me, your way to prevent
my own suffering

Come, enslave me, your way to prevent
my own suffering

and lust for
emptiness, loneliness,
I begged for this, my confession,
feel like I’m dread, not prepared,
every breath leads me to the end.
Track Name: Euthanesia
Voices crave your existence
drag you down the hill and back again
choosing life by leading you to death.

Pain and pride in degradation
lose control and devise your role
emptiness will try to rip out your breath.

Layered thoughts stand before me
blackening reality
dive in me and face the creep that I am.

Fire fanned by a dry wind
like a flood that sweeps away
fire fanned by a dry wind
results of your crime.

It's like a soul in two different bodies
but the soul has turned into slave
and you know you can’t get away.

What if I'm longing for my redemption
what if I could escape
you know my life has been bought and sold,
euthanasia.

It's like a soul in two different bodies
but the soul has turned into slave
and you know you can’t get away.

What if I'm longing for my redemption,
what if I could escape,
you know my life has been bought and sold,
Euthanasia.

What if I came to this earth for a reason
and if I leave she won’t be harmed by me
who can tell for all this what’s the reason
to go on.

At some point all of the circles are closing
there’s no winner over death
don’t you ever forget
your shadow rises and falls
according to the sun.

Euthanasia
Fire fanned by a dry wind
Euthanasia

Like flood that sweeps away
Euthanasia
Signs of a life time
Euthanasia.
Track Name: Unique
Prepare your face
and take your time to change
you'll meet so many and different covers.
Open your eyes and choose another mask
silence, a lie, that turns the light to dust.

It's real for me, chaos for you

With a color lense I paint the world my own
like a circus, I’m like a battle.
For only an instant illusion shone through
knocks on my window, directly takes me.

I’m a dream, so are you
It's real for me, chaos for you

I’m a dream, so are you
It's real for me, chaos for you

Unique, I’m creating my illusions.
Unique, choose for me eternal freedom.

For so long I’m wearing a mask
shelter me from who I am
hard to breathe it's getting so cold
choose for me eternal freedom.

I'm far away, ascending to the stars
I feel I'm inside another body.
Things incorrect, it shouldn’t be this way
as if my time is slipping away.

It's real for me, chaos for you
I’m a dream, so are you

Forgive me please oh! My Gracious One
for I've been closing my eyes.
Witness miracless yet undone
value me through fear and judge me.

What do you want from me?
What do you expect from me?
Through my mask, I reveal the dance of mind
ready to see what exists behind
I'm unique, illusion is my lie
It's real for me, chaos for you... insight.
Track Name: Brightness Of Loss
Virtual lover felt so well
neither needed to connect
or adapt to indifference.

I've been lost beyond my time
every night I couldn't hide
another kind of absence.

Find the tracks that I could chase
make me blind to see the change
help me to recover.

And the clarity of my soul
like a judge condemns my flaws
everyday redeems my fate,
my brain, it was ashamed to please you.

You can run for a life time,
don’t reveal your secrets,
noone learns by running,
you may stop so you can learn.

Cover up your ashes,
don't believe your whispers,
try to be determined,
do you ever say no more?

Through the brightness of the loss
turn the inside of your world
cause outside you’re covered.

And the clarity of my role
like a judge condemns my soul
everyday redeems my fate,
my brain, it was ashamed to please you.

You can run for a life time,
don’t reveal your secrets,
noone learns by running,
you may stop so you can learn

cover up your ashes,
don't believe your whispers,
try to be determined,
do you ever say no more?

Absurd, untimely, you wade through mind's mud,
through unmaintained bars,
through brain’s swampy grounds.

Every mothers birth is a gift for death,
be patient like earth or else burn yourself.

If you turn me in you’ll pay much more than,
that’s your punishment, you’ll pay for consciousness.

Unaware of grief you bear.
Annihilate your forlorn hope.
Hold your breath, free yourself.
Draw your death, lead your way.
