    Apostaclypse, the debut studio album from Stoner Rock band Astro Baron, was recorded late summer 2012 by Greg Roller in Branson, Missouri. This heavily guitar saturated concept album, based on classical mythology, the rise and fall of an ancient Paladin and his eventual rebirth and ascension. With spiritual undertones it questions our place in this universe as well as the interplay of individuals. First, blasting off with “The Wizard”, setting the scene, story and the tone of the album. Moving toward the sludgy “Keeper of time” where the Paladin gives his decree to the gods. As the story continues it reaches its breaking point at “Outer Limits” as the gods begin their search for their once humble servant now turned thief. Climaxing with "Spirals", a progressive stoner confession to reality, culminating a decree for all of those who should follow in his footsteps. Apostaclypse includes 9 hard hitting tracks ringing in at just under 50 minutes.

Track Name: The Wizard
The gods sit upon their throne of bone
The witches fortel of what the future holds
Born of fire as the age begins
The Astro Baron will soon rise again

The witches escape burn the atmosphere
The demon awakes drives the earth to fear
Covered in blood the hero finds his blade
Destroy the beast your legend will be made

Betrayed before the sun precedes to shine
The Star Explodes Blackens out the sky
Vengeance is vowed he will be reborn
The Wizard ascends becomes their only hope
Track Name: Keeper of Time
Born into a schism
A different doctrine
The one of old

Bestowed with infinite wisdom
Unlimited power to fight the wars

Taught by clerics and sages
Men of the ages
The gods themselves

Betrayed left to wither
I'm back to break their stranglehold

Mind, body and spirit
I will take you to another world
Deny those who oppress you
The won't give you what I will

Now I'm the Astro Baron
Keeper of time
Bender of light

And I will forsake them
Steal the treasure
That is your life

Mind, body and spirit
I will take you to another world
Deny those who oppress you
They won't give you what I will
Track Name: War Machine
Commander of the Oron
Defender of the last right
Tithed in life
But things won't be the same
He's locked his mind away
Going down
Everything he held
Just Slipped away
Through flesh and bone

You won't save me
From the fire in my mind
And I Can't understand it
So I won't be denied

Despite his last plea
Peace met through reasoning
The rage takes hold
I won't run your War Machine
Your threats don't mean a thing
The gods cry out
Everything in life fades eventually
But not this time

You won't save me
From the fire in my mind
And I can't understand it
So I won't be denied it

And I run
Track Name: The Creeper
I hid, I hid my soul
Behind a star so bright
You can search, but you'll never find
Where my soul now resides

I travel through time
Travel through space
The villains lament remains
Hold me down
Bind me to my sin
The Astro Baron begins

I found, I found his soul
Entwined to my my own
A gift, from the gods of high
The ones he dare deny

I'll travel through time
Travel through space
Complete his fall from grace
Hold him down
Bind him to his sin
The Astro Baron will end
Track Name: Outer Limits
A man stands alone in the ancient hall of Avalon
With hatred in his eyes enough to smash the gods
The elders foretold fo his planned powers
As lighting bears down on the temple tower

And when I reach the outer limits
They won't find me where I run
I'll do the best that I can
To hid my soul behind the sun

Taken by the fear he is crawling through the night alone
As the plan aligns to steal his soul
The wrath of the gods must not be spent
The pain of his death he now ascends

And when I reach the outer limits
They won't find me where I run
I'll do the best that I can
To hide my soul behind the sun

The gods are crying out his name
An age in which he feels no pain
Thrust upon the universe
The crux of time will be his curse
Track Name: Turn Away
In the night
The come to take
The only thing that's really yours
Steal the power
That has been yours since birth
Come with me
I'll give you back
All you've ever had
In the land of ever life
There is no turning back

Full of lies are the gods
The only Take
Turn away, never look back
Press forward, repel their attack

Beyond the stars
That have burned
For a thousand years
Lies a place
That renders dreams
That once were your fears
Place your trust in yourself
And never disavow
Stay the course
Raise your flags
Remove the tattered rags

Full of lies are the gods
The only take
Turn away, never look back
Press forward, repel their attack
Track Name: Never Coming Back
In the misty fog
Fall upon a hill
I saw your face

Tormented for so long
Time can't heal my scars

I come crawling back
To the foot of the alter
Where it all began

And I can see so clearly
Yes I can see where they failed me
Yes I can see so clearly
That you're never coming back

Steams of morning light
Break in through the dawn
And open up my eyes

Dreams that were to be
All come crashing down
Buried under your lies

All of my trust
I misplaced
In you

For once in my life
I wish I could go
turn back the hands of time

And I can see so clearly
Yes I can see where they failed me
Yes I can see so clearly
That your'e never coming
You're never coming
You're never coming back
Track Name: Ashes to Ice
Pull now from the glow
The truth is hard to understand
Drawing from the orb
Your life is slipping through your hands
Lost in space and time
Your eyes fall upon a child
Neglected by you mind
You fly

Defiant as the cold
The blood running through your veins
Memory of a past life
Decaying what remains
Madness of the void
Is turned upon the sky
Neglected by your mind
You fly

What's a man without a cause
What's the truth when it's undone
And though he doesn't know
The fight has now begun
Track Name: Spirals
Nothing you can do can make your world complete
Deceived in my mind you haunt me in my dreams
I stand before the throne with vengeance in my eyes
Hunted by the gods unknown by my disguise

Drug by the shift
Struck by the waves
Spiral and gone
Pieces of the past
Chronicled pain
Tepid rule

Slaver to the frail and morrow to the gods
Demonize the weak
Lavish them with scars
War within the past
Your rage will soon succumb
Prepare for the end
Our futures become one

Drug by the shift
Struck by the waves
Spiral and gone
Pieces of the past
Chronicled pain
Tepid rule

All that you hate
All you contrive
All that you love
Burns in the sky
And as you decay
I am reborn
All that you wished
Scorched by the sun

View the world through jilted eyes
The sky consumes but can't disguise that
Nothing changes but the sun
You just might see what you've become
Wear your hatred like a crown
I hold you up, you push me down
Crumbling worlds won't be the end
Your mind recessed where it began
