about

High above the scorched, dry earth the remnants of humanity float safely on iron salvation. But peace is never meant to last. It's time to descend into the Badlands.

Badlands is an episodic concept album from the twisted creative mind of Riccardo Estate. Set in a distant world, a world that has ended, Badlands will take you on a journey through physical conflict to better understand the nature of self, purpose and companionship.

Begin your journey into the Badlands on December 12 2014.

Track Name: Badlands (Duststorm)
Oh, bad lands
Far as the eye can see and
Nothing out here but hope

There's nothing
Here left for me and
I'm gonna pick up and leave

For the Badlands
Badlands

Great sky boats
Fill up the dock that day and
I'm gonna make one my home

Spending my days
Down on the factory floor and
There's no place I'd rather be

Than the Badlands
Badlands

Badlands
Badlands

I left my home
In the clouds today and
There's just one thing on my mind

A mystery
In a young girl's eyes
She follows me to the end

To the Badlands
Badlands

There's ain't no heaven
Where I plan to go and
It's far too hot for hell

Iron wings
Beat the burning air and
War machines walk the soil

In the Badlands
Badlands

Badlands
Badlands


Sun blocked out by a bloody sky,
Red dust fills the air,
I shield my eyes and I wonder why,
There ain't no peace anywhere,

'Cause all I see is the dust storm,
And it burns my eyes,
All I see is my own lies,

I'm sweating fire in the hot box,
Crawling across the sand,
She's had my back since the sky docks,
And there ain't no turning back,

'Cause all I see is the dust storm,
And it burns my eyes,
All I see is my own lies,

There's something on the horizon,
No where to go, no where to go, no where to...

Run right through the dust storm,
Just the two of us,
Found and lost in the Badlands,
The scorching day has passed,

But all I see is the dust storm,
And it burns my eyes,
All I see is my own lies,

All I see...
Track Name: Miserable
I got nowhere to go
No place to call my home
I send my hope into the sky
It's hot as hell as I slowly fry
I'm miserable

She's got nowhere to go
No, she ain't got a home
And she's too damn strong to cry
She's stuck with me and her eyes don't lie
She's miserable

No hope, we're getting low
We're a long, long way from home
No way back even if we try
We sit and watch the day pass us by
We're miserable

She's the only one I know
Makes me feel I'm coming home
And I wish I could tell her why
For the first time I can't deny
I'm not miserable
Track Name: Desert Queen
Blue sky
Red land
No lie
First-hand

I came to her undone

True love
First sight
I wept
All night

The pain that brought me here

Cold steel
Red hands
High above
The Badlands

No one is innocent

Big Gun
Big stride
Undone
As we slowly glide

Through the desert air

She's the Desert Queen
A war machine
This war I'm in

Half truth
All lie
No youth
Big sky

It's not what we were told

No plan
In sight
No, man
Alright

Our best days are here

She's the Desert Queen
A war machine
This war I'm in

She's the open sky
Where's freedom lies
Where freedom dies

She's the Desert Queen
A war machine
This war I'm in

We're on the road
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to...

She's the open sky
Where's freedom lies
Where freedom dies

Oh, she's a war machine
A sight to be seen
A sight to see
Track Name: Sunnyville
If you ever find yourself in Sunnyville
Better watch your back or better still
Just stay away, just stay away

I once knew a man who went that way
Vanished without a trace, turned up some other day
Bound in chains, bound in chains

Slave caravans cross the land
Searching under every stone, buried underneath the sand
Searching for you, searching for you

No one can say what they'll do with you
But it's foul and it's cruel and there's nothing you can do
It's a slaves life for you

Well, Sunnyville came this way
Nothing that I could do would keep the fiends away
They ripped through sky and took her away
