about

The Vailix Charlottesville, Virginia

The Vailix is a female fronted hard rock band whose music is based on a sci-fi storyline called "The Tales of the Cloud Ocean".

Powerful vocals soar above riff-heavy guitars, grinding bass, and thunderous drums as they turn narration and images into songs that drive just as intensely as the story from which they spring.

The Vailix is a unique, and heart-pounding experience from start to finish!

Track Name: Sky Climbing
Last night answers fell to earth like old gods
Seeking questions to redeem the old faults

But they're coming for you just like they came for me
They're keeping our word from spinning around
The time will come
Save yourself

Midnight. Starlight. Cloud Ocean sings the old songs
Always darkest before the break of new dawns

But they're coming for you just like they came for me
They're keeping our word from spinning around
The time will come
Save yourself

This is winter of our exile from Eden
This is the last stop on a train to Forevergone
Nothing we've will ever get us to even
Nothing we do will right this avalanche of wrong
For where I stand I see a long road before us
I look behind I see a trail of the dead

And just like answer reveal a mystery
The choice before us is will we fight to die free

But they're coming for you just like they came for me
They're keeping our word from spinning around
The time will come
Save yourself

Like hunted animals, we mask our intention
Like hunted animals, we cheat to change our fate
From what I know the road ahead it will change us
The crucible will burn to see what remains

But they're coming for you just like they came for me
They're keeping our word from spinning around
There's nowhere to run where they won't find you
There's nowhere to hide from Forevergone
The hope is the key, it's your survival
Just know that the future depends on us
The time will come
Save us all
Track Name: Fist Face (feat. Sean Raynor)
Six on one, hostile aggressors
Chickenshit jackals with guns at their sides
Risk myself for the life of an unknown?
Dance that dance and take death for a ride?

IN AND OUT - Scatter for cover then
IN AND OUT - Running and hiding then
IN AND OUT - Give them a taste of their own medicine
IN AND OUT - Feel their bones breaking then
IN AND OUT - Crying for mercy then
IN AND OUT - Give them a taste of their own medicine

My arms are your fortress, never to falter
FIGHT!
I am your warrior, clockwork heart colder than steel
I'M READY TO DIE!

Heed the call, mission: recovery
Improvise now, bring the vessel to the hive
Must defend! The cargo is priceless
At all costs this one girl cannot die

IN AND OUT - Scatter for cover then
IN AND OUT - Running and hiding then
IN AND OUT - Give them a taste of their own medicine
IN AND OUT - Feel their bones breaking then
IN AND OUT - Crying for mercy then
IN AND OUT - Give them a taste of their own medicine

My arms are your fortress, never to falter
FIGHT!
I am your warrior, clockwork heart colder than steel
I'M READY TO DIE!
My will is your armor, my body your shield wall
FIGHT!
I am your avatar, clockwork heart colder than steel
I'M READY TO DIE!

My arms are your fortress, never to falter
FIGHT!
I am your warrior, clockwork heart colder than steel
I'M READY TO DIE
My will is your armor, my body your shield wall
FIGHT!
I am your avatar, clockwork heart colder than steel
Track Name: Beneath the Surface
Fate tossed by still together
Leave behind this life forever
Heart broken, make your plea
Numb with pain to set you free

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again
We'll sink beneath the surface my friend

Soaked with sorrow speak her name
Letting go is the hardest thing

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again

So don't betray who you are today
Or shy from what you'll become
Because all we are is hope and scars
And that's life enough to carry on
And we must carry on

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again
I'll be right here, my hand extends
We'll sink beneath the surface my friend
Track Name: Beneath the Surface (Stripped Mix feat. Isaac Slutzky and Loryn Post)
Fate tossed by still together
Leave behind this life forever
Heart broken, make your plea
Numb with pain to set you free

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again
We'll sink beneath the surface my friend

Soaked with sorrow speak her name
Letting go is the hardest thing

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again

So don't betray who you are today
Or shy from what you'll become
Because all we are is hope and scars
And that's life enough to carry on
And we must carry on

I've seen right through it all
The times you cried I still recall
You'll never be alone at sea again
I'll be right here, my hand extends
We'll sink beneath the surface my friend
