Paranorm is a thrash metal band based in Uppsala, Sweden. They have played together since 2008, released a demo (Demo 2010) and two EPs (Pandemonium's Rise, 2011 and The Edge of Existence, 2014) independently, and played numerous shows around Sweden. They aim to create a melodic and progressive form of thrash metal, while still retaining the power and aggression that is the foundation of the genre. Instead of repeating what bands did 25 years ago, they seek to build upon that formula, creating something new and refreshing.

The band is currently actively searching for gigs and tours to promote the new release and have started composing new material for their debut full-length album. They are also searching for a record label that shares the same vision as the band to join forces with and achieve new heights.

Track Name: Into the Unknown
Verse 1:
Here I stand
At the edge of existence
Where time has ceased to exist
Erratic echoes
From a time long past
Now there's no way back

On the verge
Of the impregnable eternity
A path we all must walk
Break the balance
Face your fears
Or nothing will remain

Chorus:
Into the unknown
Worlds shall collide
What else remains
When all hope has died?

Verse 2:
Blurring lines
Of a depicted reality
The face of nothingness
Circle completes
In the eleventh hour
And every truth is revealed

Chorus:
Into the unknown
Worlds shall collide
What else remains
When all hope has died?

Verse 3:
The fabric of space in dissolution
Projected disarray
The ultimate enigma
Is just one step away

Images flash before my eyes
As if in trance
Come to terms with futility
And accept my own insignificance

Chorus:
Into the unknown
Worlds shall collide
What else remains
When all hope has died?

Into the unknown
Moments divide
Into the unknown
All hope has died!
Track Name: Second Assault
Verse 1:
Far too long have I dwelt in the past
Neglecting the things to come
Never straying out of my comfort zone
Fearing what I would become

No more will I sit idly and wait
I'm going in head first
Now is the time to reclaim what's forgotten
Let the seeds of a new day burst

Pre-Chorus:
Let go at last
Of the ghosts from the past
Spectres within absolved

The only way back
Is another attack
So prepare for the second assault

Chorus:
Second assault!
Break free of the things you fear
Second assault!
The new era is here

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse 2:
I still remember the spirit of bygone days
But also the faults and flaws
Reconquer the past to forge a new future
Relight the fire that once was

Erase the boundaries of imagination
Things never before seen or heard
Form a path to a new golden era
Where 'impossible' is but a word

Pre-Chorus:
Let go at last
Of the ghosts from the past
Spectres within absolved

The only way back
Is another attack
So prepare for the second assault

Chorus:
Second assault!
Break free of the things you fear
Second assault!
My mind is finally clear
Second assault!
Second assault!
Track Name: Sunstorm
Verse 1:
There is a hidden maze
Built by a fabric of words
Tread lightly through this labyrinth
Where thoughts and meanings diverge

When faced with the choice between sense and sentiment
Yourself you will betray
Weakness of the human nature
Innocence long passed away

Chorus:
This earth is cloaked in a veil of disguise
Information is vital, yet ignorance bliss
Without answers we persist
An outline disorder of society
Distracting our minds from what really could be
A storm on the sun, or a shard of your soul
Forever encapsuled in time

Verse 2:
There is a darkening veil
Covering our eyes
Sealed away behind closed doors
The forbidden answer lies

The crystal castles carefully built
Could in a moment fall apart
Revealing thus the source of evil
In every human heart

Chorus:
This earth is cloaked in a veil of disguise
Information is vital, yet ignorance bliss
Without answers we persist
An outline disorder of society
Distracting our minds from what really could be
A storm on the sun, or a shard of your soul
Forever encapsuled in time

Verse 3:
Independent thought a crime
Discordant mental streams
In this clouded paradigm
Nothing is what it seems

Verse 4:
The things that we are led to believe
Are just a fraction of what we could perceive
Reality rendered obsolete
The illusion is complete

Chorus:
This world is cloaked in a veil of disguise
Information is vital, yet ignorance bliss
Without answers we persist
An outline disorder of society
Distracting our minds from what really could be
A storm on the sun, or a shard of your soul
Forever encapsuled in time
Forever encapsuled in time!
Track Name: Desolate Worlds
Verse 1:
On a field of forgotten dreams
Where winds of regret have blown
In a sea of subdued thoughts
Here I wander alone

Recurring visions of another world
Now long left behind
Mirror image dimension
Where past and future collide

I have watched but haven't seen
The wastelands before my eyes
Barren soil of an empty planet
Under mercurial skies

Chorus:
Stars glowing
Raven black
Swallowed in dark energy

Echoes drowning
In the sea of time
Nothing could ever escape

Ephemeral existence
Lost in contemplation
Lethargic limbs of a racing mind
Wandering desolate worlds

Verse 2:
The graying rays of a dying sun
Paint a monochrome pastel
Deep in the subconscious mind
Where ghosts of the past still dwell

Pulled by waves of disillusion
Surge of the undertow
Still I search for future memories
Hunted by my own shadow

Collect the pieces of history
Before they fade away
Gather the fragments of what used to be
The memory they portray

Chorus:
Ephemeral existence
Lost in contemplation
Lethargic limbs of a racing mind
Wandering desolate worlds

Skies glowing
Raven black
Swallowed in dark energy

Echoes drowning
In the sea of time
Nothing could ever escape

Verse 3:
A new day dawns on the distant wasteland
Where elusive memories flew
Retrace the steps that I once walked
To reach somewhere new

Travel through this transience with
A clear state of mind
Absurd to think one cannot control
A fate that's yet undefined

Chorus:
Ephemeral existence
Lost in contemplation
Lethargic limbs of a racing mind
Wandering desolate worlds

Stars glowing
Raven black
Swallowed in dark energy

Echoes drowning
In the sea of time
Nothing could ever escape

Nothing will ever escape

Distant dimensions
Desolate worlds
