Comet Rider 04:30
Look up, at the waking world And watch the skies collapse Burning out, when I close my eyes Behold the nexus Endless water, crashing down on me Fading light The Archer hunts alone Her arrows piercing through the night Brace yourselves The sky is caving in I feel a thousand worlds collide The sun, breaking through the darkest cloud Calling out, just to hear my voice Endless waves, carry me away Fading light The Archer hunts alone Her arrows piercing through the night Brace yourselves The sky is caving in I feel a thousand worlds collide

Nomad 05:10
Pass through the fields Follow the river to the sea Stand tall as the Evergreens Tread light on the needles that cover the ground Blue skies in the Hunter's eye Another trail goes cold And the well runs dry Where it used to flow Down the mountainside, to the fields below By the light of the moon The forest takes a different shape And the Spirits awaken They showed me the signs In every broken branch and the leaves that have fallen Blue skies in the Hunter's eye Another trail goes cold And the well runs dry Where it used to flow Down the mountainside, to the fields below

Voices in the ground Call for me Rising up from unmarked graves Make me whole again I am lost inside this place Close the well Make me whole I’m unraveling Make me whole I’m unraveling

Hold your lantern high Search for the glitter of gold When the cold takes your breath Feeling under duress Have faith in the river guide Hold your lantern high Search for the glitter of gold There’s a hole in your chest Where your lover would rest Follow the river guide As I entered the cavern, My vision left me The walls seemed alive And every step was met with shuddering cold In the distance a radiating light beckoned And I made my way forward Drawing closer my fears left me And a feeling of comfort Filled my entire being There in the chamber filled with light I abandoned the world above Hold your lantern high Search for the glitter of gold When the cold takes your breath Feeling under duress Have faith in the river guide

Ice Castle 04:37
Raise your gates Let the peasants in As they try to run From winters edge But the howling winds And the darkening sky Mean nothing to the lord within Hiding in your frozen castle Embrace the storm Lock you out I’ll raise my sword And cut you down Hostage to the madness Isolation Echoing voices Ringing through your halls Whisper words of doom Heed the ravens call Kill the last man standing In your spire you will die alone Hiding in your broken castle Embrace the storm Lock you out I’ll raise my sword And cut you down Hostage to the madness Isolation Demons closing in with their glowing eyes Marching under blood red skies Embrace the storm Lock you out I’ll raise my sword And cut you down

Fanatics on the run Warnings on station They’re building a machine Hiding in the wasteland Apocalyptic planet in dismay The lab is overrun Chaotic invitation I’ll take the captains helm Master the invention The cables are connecting to my veins Computer sending signals to my brain My engines run on fuel injected rage It’s better to explode than fade away Robotic claw Circular saw I’ll tear your face to shreds The cables are connecting to my veins Computer sending signals to my brain My engines run on fuel injected rage It’s better to explode than fade away Forget my name Assimilate My engines run on fuel injected rage It’s better to explode than fade away

Everlight 07:57
Under the stars Step through the veil Into the mountain Bend to my will Cast down your lightning Jumpstart my sleeping heart Shaking with the energy Steady my hand There stands the beast Still water's edge Under the stars Taking control Look in my eyes Bend to my will Untamed Chimera Looking down, standing at the water's edge Enter the mountain It’s breaking down the gateways to my world Souls raining down Washing over me Losing control Close my eyes and Breathing Fire Burning through me Eyesight failing I can’t find my way through the smoke Lost inside this waking nightmare Cast down your lightning Enter the mountain Stepping through the gateways to my world Under the stars Step through the veil Into the mountain Bend to my will

The Orb 07:08
In the night Sun starved beast will rise From the infinite void To devour my life Those burning eyes Send shivers down Straight through my spine Stay awake by the candlelight My eyes grow heavy as lead Wait for my devil to arrive I fall back in Can you feel the heartbeat Rattle in my chest Call for salvation and I’m running out of breath Those burning eyes Forever mine Cold winds will carry The scent of my blood Evil forces will race against the sun Those burning eyes Forever mine Stay awake Those burning eyes Forever mine Those burning eyes By candlelight

Stone Giant 06:17
Silver chariot Let the creature guide your way Sun kissed spire On the floating mountain side Starlight Carrier Hold your lantern to the sky Climb the wall higher Keep your arrows at your side Hold your lantern to the sky Keep your arrows at your side Raining fire Wild one, brought low Let the wellspring overflow Starlight Carrier Hold your lantern to the sky Climb the wall higher Keep your arrows at your side Starlight Carrier Hold your lantern to the sky Climb the wall higher Keep your arrows at your side Hold your lantern to the sky Keep your arrows at your side

about

The Space Between Worlds is a concept album that follows the story of a huntress who travels the infinite metaphysical worlds brought into being by the dreams of humankind. In these realms, she encounters a dream eater which threatens to unravel the fabric of reality by devouring dreamers and destroying the dimensional gateways.

With the addition of new bassist Sebastian Baltes (son of longtime ACCEPT bassist Peter Baltes), the band has expanded its already impressive vocal harmony approach with the addition of a third voice. Friend of the band Drew Harakal adds extra sonic textures to the album with his organ and synth skills. And Jason Shi of ASG appears with a guest vocal cameo on the track Ice Castle.

Highlighting the band's tremendous musical prowess and versatility, The Space Between Worlds is a warp trail of heavy rock and roll so weird it can only be called progressive, giving space to every sonic weapon in Howling Giant's arsenal, and all bound by the album's central concept and the members' towering musicianship.
