about

SkyQode is proud to present the third full-length album, "Epik", from the Moscow-based electronic project Requiem4FM!

Formed in 2003, the band quickly gained local attention with their catchy blend of synthpop, techno and rock elements. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums, "kRASH!" (2006) and "Novocaine" (2009), the band went on a prolonged hiatus.

The new album does not only mark Requiem4FM's first full-length release in six years, but also demonstrates the band's impressive growth, both production- and sound-wise.

"Epik" is undoubtedly the band's most diverse and mature record to date, ranging from danceable synthpop tunes to brooding electrorock hymns and featuring exciting collaborations with Roman Ryabtsev (of the Russian synthpop legends Technology), Xavier Morales (of the American futurepop band Ruined Conflict) and the Swedish singer Tess Fries!

Track Name: Once And 4 All
In a train along the railway
Passing stations all the same
Trapped in this routine forever
Every day's a yesterday

Same old faces, same old stories
Rusted hopes and wasted lives
Endless clouds keep on rolling
Covering the leaden skies

Chorus:
It's time to brush away
the dust & debris off your soul
To break away
From this place of grey and cold
No more useless words and lies
No more staring at the wall
Time has come to cut the ties
Breaking free once and for all

Is there any point in waiting
When there's nothing left to lose
But the grey outside the window
And a life inside the noose?
Track Name: Minutes Of Madness
A pale face and blue eyes
Thin lips and a voice like ice
I'm the dread you won't see twice
I'm lurking with no disguise

Fear me, you cardboard bitches,
I'm gonna smash you off my way
I am the kingdom of madness
There is no sympathy from me!

Chorus:
Everyone belongs to me
In my minutes of madness
Lightning strikes and thunder roars
On the heads of these poor whores
What is written, so shall it be
In my minutes of madness
No way back, nowhere to run
My madness goes on and on!

I'm the hell, I am the blood
I see the truth and see when it's not
My sight ruins everything
I am your god! I am your king

Kneel before me, feel my rage
There's no escape from my carnage
I am all four-horsemen-in-one*
And I will make you gone
Track Name: Rain Factory (Feat. Roman Ryabtsev)
There's something wrong up in the sky
7 years of pouring rain,
Years of everlasting grey

Rusty thoughts are on my mind
Thinking of the sunny days
Of that neverlasting May

Rain is falling everywhere
Flooding valleys, streets and squares
Always here and there

Rain ruins everything
Streets and valleys, hopes and dreams
But I'm still waiting for the spring

On the factory of rain
Another boring day
I awake in the shades of grey
Stealing my life away
On the factory of rain
I count the rest of my days
Praying to the rays of the sun
Here and now and again...

On the factory of rain
Another boring day
I awake in the shades of grey
Stealing my life away

On the factory of rain
I count the rest of my days
Praying to the rays of the sun
Here and now and again
Waiting for the sun to come
And I'll see you
See you again
Track Name: Looney Tune
Got stuck in a maze
Time stopped in the middle of these days
Mind was off and erased

Need some tunes for our minds
And explosion in our brains
Plug the wires, it's party time!
We will never be the same again

Chorus:
Dancing trees are singing there
We don't care, we just don't care
Forgotten dreams here
Played forever on repeat
Sparkling-loud - tons of sound
Everybody follows the pulse of the beat

Bass'n'drums are beating low
Pumping hearts are ready to explode
The blow. To the brain.
Silver lightning goes through our veins

Mermaids are dancing in the snow
Wolves are barking at the moon
In the eyes of a cocaine-crazy owl
Everybody's dancing to this looney tune
Track Name: Depart
The sand is running out
It's time to face the truth
I'm dwelling on the pictures
The memories of my youth

The smiles I used to see
The hands I used to hold...
It's time to pack my things
And depart into the cold

Chorus:
Now... my time has come
I'm ready to face the facts
I'm left here all alone
So I'm packing my bags 
... packing my bags
... packing my bags

No tears left to cry
No sorries, no regrets and no chances to try

I'm sailing to the next world
drifting away with the wind of spring
And everything I've ever felt
I'm packing with me

Not afraid of the future
If tomorrow never comes
Not afraid of the future
If tomorrow never comes
Not afraid of the future
If tomorrow never comes
Not afraid of the future
My tomorrow never come
Track Name: You Coloured My Dreams (Feat. Tess)
You coloured my dreams
You spoke my name
You made me remember myself again
It’s you, it’s you
You coloured my dreams

Let it grow
Let it go
Let it feel
Let it be
Just remember, love is free

That’s why you don’t belong to me
We all need space to be
We are so much more than what we are
We are free

Chorus:
You coloured my dreams
You spoke my name
You made me remember myself again
It’s you, it’s you
You coloured my dreams

Somehow I know
Time will tell and show
I remember
I’m your melody

But you still don’t belong to me
We all need space to be
We’re so much more than what we are
We are free
Track Name: The Screens
What is flickering in the night
With a shimmering brilliant light
Shifting minds from black and white
To irresistible colours

Who's building your own life?
And replacing your kids and wife?
What glitters like a knife?
The source of your honour.

Chorus:
The screens!
Your sensual overdrive
The screens!
The meaning of your life
Instead of medicine
The screens!
The screens!
Don't sit so close
The screens!
Your daily overdose
And all your dreams
Here on the screens!

Spending time in front of us
You deserve a very special trust
We really appreciate your lust
Growing faster and faster

But you are much too slow
So you'll never ever know
Who is paying for this show
And who is your master, moo-ha-ahahahaaaaaa!!!
Track Name: Epik (Feat. Ruined Conflict)
Through the woods
Through the fields and rivers
We are coming like a blight

A relentless blind force
Smashing everything before it
Without pity and remorse

Chorus:
Out of the darkness, towards the silence
Invincibly we go
Seven billions mighty warriors
Shaking their rusty swords
Sowing the seeds of destruction
We'll wipe this world away
What's the price of tomorrow
When the end is coming today

We are the pride of Nature
We are the evolution's crown
Tired of our greatness
We are going down

Seeing no end in the beginning
We're drowning in our own blood
We are humanity
And after us the flood
