Psychedelic Rick The Vocals are as great as the music. Rare to find both. What an extremely well produced album! Only complaint is I wish it was twice as long! Favorite track: Beyond The Sun.

Frederick Jones Woodhawk has made a killer stoner rock album for the ages. Beyond the Sun sets the stage for what can only be described as classic. Great riffs galore and amazing vocals sung to killer songwriting. This is an extremely polished work of art from the boys from Canada. Just finished spinning that sweet orange wax. Sounds friggin' unbelievable. Don't miss out on this one. I will be spinning this one alot. Favorite track: Chrononaut.

Woodhawk Calgary, Alberta

Made of equal parts 1970s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, Calgary trio Woodhawk are purveyors of riff centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. ... more

Track Name: Beyond The Sun
Into the abyss, no sign of life
Past all the stars, past all the light
No sound or silence, no sight to see
Into the space, into the deep

On the horizon, of another world
With a fading sun, a cosmic pearl

I’m moving far beyond the sun

Just a light in time, that’s held in space
By all that’s around, keeps it in place
No cause for alarm, no need to fear
Through the rock and dust, into the clear

I found a new way
Beyond all the light
Through outer space
Into the night

I found a new place
Where I’m the only one
Through dust and the haze
Beyond the sun
Track Name: The High Priest
They say I’m evil, they say I’m cruel
I say I’m chosen, chosen by you
So I walk down this crooked path
To try and cleanse my dirty hands

I’ve been enabled with too much power
But I am no son of god, just the chosen one

I am the high priest
Bow down to me

This corrupt system, in which you believe
An outdated proverb, that stays concrete
So you speak in twisted tongues
No chance of change for fear of being wrong
Track Name: Living In The Sand
So I’m lost under the desert sun
With the moving earth that lets you burn
It’s hard to see what’s before my eyes
So I walk towards the only light

Under the sun grains of the ground
Move into one

What will be left when I’m burnt to the ground
Bones of my soul

Living in the sand

Under the sun it’s a different day
Leaving me lost in a whole different way

It’s a mirage that I think I see
But it’s just the light, teasing me
I hear a voice, say lead the way
It’s time to go, your time is done

Not far to go because it’s almost the end
But I can’t escape living in the sand

I know it’s time
The sun has won
As my body becomes one with the earth
It blows away with the dirt
And I know I’m gone
Track Name: Magnetic North
I walk the moonlit path, as I try to trace my tracks
I kick the dusty road, to find my way home

As my shadow moves, under the moonlight glow
I start heading north, in search of warmth

The wind at my back, the sun in my eyes
I can’t be too far, from the northern lights

I lost my soul, I sold my pride
For a glimmer of hope, for a speckle of light

Follow magnetic north, until it all pulls down
Nowhere to left to go, nowhere but home

We flock north, looking for something
But this here, is better than nothing
This warmth, that you call cold
Your hell, we call home

The days are growing long, the nights are moving slow
All that was here, is now all gone

I’m finally here, in this warming cold
It’s been so long, since I felt home

These birds fly north in search of something
A cold breeze that’s always moving
Fly home at the end of the winter
Because this here is better than nothing
Track Name: Lawless
I head for the mountains
I head for the trees
I left on an old horse
That died at my feet

Not long now, keep moving
Not far now, no slowing

There’s no law where we are going
Just keep your gun at your side you’ll be fine

I move through the forest
Trying not to be seen
But I’ve been discovered
By the crackling leaves

No mercy, no falter
On this blood covered alter

There’s lawless blood on the ground
As shells cover the town
One bullet left in my gun
And it is for one of us
Track Name: Quest For Clarity
Go ask the wise
To see the future
And draw out a map
A view from the past

Where do I go
Where do I roam
What will I find
Enlightened minds

When the smoke clears I see the light in the world
Visions are changing and I know what’s right in the world

See what’s around
And hear what they say

Go ask the elders
For sage advice
And listen closely
It’s not spoke twice

My mind is glowing with visions all across the room
My eyes are showing, showing me what to do
Track Name: A New Hope
There’s been a disturbance in the force
There’s dark where light once was before
In a galaxy far far away
Rebel ships strike from a hidden base

Somewhere a new hope is born
In a period of civil war
Teach him the powers in which he holds
It needs to be felt it can’t be shown

Let go of yourself, close your eyes and use the force
Leave it behind, close your eyes and use the force

Your minds a weapon use it well
Where there is good there is evil
The dark side is calling out to you
Believe in what you know is true

There’s been a disturbance in the force
There’s dark where light once was before
Millions of voices all cried out
Suddenly silenced without a sound
Track Name: Chrononaut
I foresee the future
Because I witnessed the past
You better watch you step now
Because you don’t know what’s next
History was foretold by writings on the walls
An ancient vision of leaders who tried to warn believers

They say, I’m chosen

But I’m not the one
Who saved your soul

I travel through time
Trying to find the start
The route of evil and chaos
And where we all got lost
I think I found the answer, I think I found the cause
We want to rule the world until it crumbles away

I slow down all this time around
Just to take a look beyond
The endless waves and holes in the ground
Just look at what we’ve done

I ride the waves of time
I ride the endless the light
There’s no stopping the future
There’s no forgetting the past

This is the end of all that we know
