Lyrics
Tortured by visions – tortured by all that I’ve seen- The poor and dejected – the fires that rise high in the east- How can I escape – how will I ever get out of this place? Tortured by visions – all that I wish for is peace-
Faceless and horrid – the guardians who float among the crowd- I cannot see their eyes – but I feel them gazing down on me- The poisons do nothing – I do not feel more centered or whole- Tortured by visions – peace can’t penetrate my mind-
A line for all I’ve seen, three inside of me- I will look for peace, but will I ever succeed?
The visions, they haunt me, things I never wanted to see- I will look for peace, but will it accept me?
I can’t see it to save me--I can’t feel it I’m numb and so dizzy- I can’t touch it it’s missing--Ahh! The poisons are working!
Now, I can wish for sleep- As the world disappears around me- Now, I feel as though I’m free- The curtains close and I’ll not be-
And I will dream of life before this- Of the hope and love and life- And I will dream of peace and blue sky- And pray for peace and death ... eternal

Great Heaviness abounds!
This kicks serious ass bro!

I dig your grind core vox and attitude combined with ballad style vox. Great mixture of style and coordinated nicely. You didn't allow D/L's :(

Sweet!

Not yet. When I finish with the whole thing the record will be available for whatever you want to pay for it via BandCamp. My shitty demo version is now available there, but I'm thinking about removing it 'cause it's embarrassing compared to these new versions.

Thanks for listening! Glad you like it.

Great Buildup
It's nice hearing some Metal. The buildup in this song is great, and the vocals are very good. Like the switch up from demon to mellow, very cool!

Thanks!
Watch out for more. The build up thing is kinda my thing. I love big epic tracks.

Rock opera
The opening chords are special. The transition to metal kills. The demonic voice fits. Guitars are evil sounding. The last minute or so has an undercurrent of optimism. Such an interesting musical style. And what an ending.

Thanks!
I'm really glad you like the style. I wasn't sure if you'd dig the heavier stuff that I'm doing. I mean, I know that growls are pretty much an acquired taste and not many people have them. I feel like the fit with the style because my music tends to carry the melody on the guitars and then the vocals don't need them.

I hope you liked the drums better here, as well.

As I said before, this is a concept album from the perspective of a single individual, hence the emotional rollercoaster aspect of it. I thought it really fit with the style of music that I like to write.
