"Alluded to in the title, the album basks in that feeling of being humbled by nature, the Boise, Idaho, four-piece seeming to look around them and see giant mountains, giant trees, giant skies and to feel duly small as a result. Spirit of the Lonely Places is comprised of five tracks that vary in mood and in terms of composition but are united in ambience and grim melody — the fruit of multiple songwriters coming together with common intent — and while it may not be a concept record in terms of narrative storytelling, its sense of identity is as strong as it is lonely. Standing alone would seem to suit Ealdor Bealu."
-The Obelisk

"...the way in which they manage to paint their colorful and naturistic tapestries is simply amazing and has grown to gigantic proportions. Dynamic by default and demanding your utmost attention the tracks soon nestle in your heart and mind. There is no escaping this Spirit and it will not make you lonely, but yet leave you appreciative and in awe…"
-Stoner Hive

"The strength of Ealdor Bealu resides in that instant power to convey their best vibrations, the feeling of their songs and the true purpose translated into this album as a key message that the connections between the heart and mind are closer than one can imagine."
-La Habitación 235

"...the sophomore release bares its teeth and grins a wicked smile in a massive wall-of-sound array that leans slightly more to the easily digestible for those on the fence... To sum it up simply, Spirit of the Lonely Places is meant for piercing light in dark rooms of their own creation while making one look inward for answers."
-Nanobot Rock

"(Spirit of the Lonely Places) suits Ealdor Bealu's sophomore album, which augments the group's somber vocals and gloomy tunes with muscular rhythms and massive, Black Sabbath-esque guitars."
-Boise Weekly

Track Name: Sink like Stone
Given life to ten thousand beings
But never asks to be given meaning
Wander around to planes unknown
Love and let go and sink like stone

Close your eyes to see within
Fall behind to begin again
An over sharpened knife's blade dulls
And where the highway goes no one can know

Moving forward into the previous stage

Glory or shame, they both cut clear
And they appear to burn all that's near
Welcome disgrace, it'll guide what you've begun
Aimless is the way as the ocean

Moving forward into the previous stage

Become exhausted to be renewed
The essence of wonders becomes anew
Moving forward will seem backwards
As we return toward an empty reward
Moving forward will seem backwards
As we return toward an empty reward
Track Name: Firebird
Smoke and ash rain down
No more home now
Burned it all away
Take back our mistakes

Firebird come to us
Burn it all away
Firebird come to us
Take back our mistakes

Firebird come to us
Burn it all away
Firebird come to us
Take it all away
Track Name: Smoke Signals
Cold wind rising
Stirred up from within
Pale horse riding
And with it comes the end

Who are you to forsake me again and again
Wander on, slowly waste away

Pillar of smoke lead our way
All is dust, deep in the mountains I lay
Track Name: Isolation
The hum and rattle of a thousand lonely days
We stand before the fire until we burn away
Twisted skeletons, a frame to hold the lie
Beside your mind, right between the eyes

You run for cover, but none can be found
You rise up from the mire and vanish without a sound
This isolation became to much to ignore
From the highest heights down to the floor

But for the all of the lies, pale auburn eyes
See the smoke through the haze
We stand before light fades into night
All is consumed by the flames

Isolation
Isolation
Track Name: The Four Horsemen
And when the lamb opened the first seal
I saw the first horse
The horseman held a sword

And when the lamb opened the second seal
I saw the second horse
The horseman held a bow

And when the lamb opened the third seal
I saw the third horse
The horseman held a balance

And when the lamb opened the fourth seal
I saw the fourth horse
The horseman was the pest

The leading horse is white
The second horse is red
The third one is a black
The last is a green

The leading horse is white
The second horse is red
The third one is a black
The last is a green
