arturo jara Have been HOS for a long long time since Land of the Damned was released and has been one of my favorite bands ever since.
When HOS fade out, it was sad but then HOS came back with III and with NOIR and now with THE FOUR WINDS ep, and I cant be more happy. Four winds is an amazing song that continues to build up on the amazing tracks that HOS and JP Mercier had created for years.
Thanks JP and HOS for the music and for sharing it with your fans. Big applause from Mexico City.

Monsieur Seb Hallelujah, HoS is back! These songs sound both new and familiar and are on par with the highest standard of quality that HoS has always upheld to this day. Love the Scattered Edit! Favorite track: The Four Winds (Scattered Edit).

syrophenikan “Four Winds” encapsulates everything I love about HoS. Great lyrics, beautifully sung, energetic and melodic music. What’s not to love? This, for me, is the perfect follow-up song to “It Can Only Mean One Thing” which is arguably the best HoS song ever. This is like “part II” to that song.

“Tall Sails” is a beautifully moody instrumental that has the ability to transport every listener to a completely different place in their mind, and no two places will be the same, but all

Track Name: The Four Winds
The Four Winds
(Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier)


If the world’s not ready now
When will it be?
Sails will be shrouds
When I put out to sea

Anchored safe and sound
The wind bent my will
And those warning clouds
They never kept me still
Ever…

Rising up and falling down
Her ambitions are tidal
Say farewell to the solid ground

I’m scattered to the four winds

Between the devil and
The deep blue sea
No guiding stars
Should or will care for me
Ever…

Rising up and falling down
Her ambitions are tidal
Say farewell to the solid ground

I’m scattered to the four winds
You threw me overboard
Resistance unavailing
All hopes left ashore

Rising up and falling down
Her ambitions are tidal
Say farewell to the solid ground

I’m scattered to the four winds
You threw me overboard
Resistance unavailing
All hopes left ashore
