Halloween track. Been a while since I did metal eh? It takes a bit to build up. It's late, too late for the contest...sadly. If my job didn't make me work today I would've gotten this done sooner. Anywho, I'm proud of this.
Instrumental version: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/710751
My inspirations were Xenogenocide, Bad-Man-Incorporated, Mastodon, Disturbed, Evanescence, and Dream Theater.
Here's the lyrics:
When I see the dusk,
I can feel the rust,
as I'm growing old,
the lonliness growing cold.
When I see the children walk,
people that play and talk,
it reminds me of those days,
why did it all fade away?
The sun has set, and I have met,
a fate that is darker than black,
down to my knees, shackled in chains,
like I'm tied up in a sack.
Trapped in my fear, I try to get out,
finding the meaning, what life's all about,
I've run away from the sweet embrace,
I can't seem to look myself in the face.
I've met the wizard and the thief,
all on a Hollow Eve.
Bleeding at the sight of leaves,
oh what a lonely Hollow Eve.
I see the sweet, the sour petite,
the one who will cover my eyes,
If i get close, she'll cover my nose,
so I can't smell the lies.
My senses failing, I've been decieved once more,
fighting myself, and everyone else, a barrier around my core.
Now this is something that works on a perfect level, Just before 1:07, it can easily remind people of Disturbed's "The Sound of Silence." but afterwards, it gets totally killer (In a good way.) Very Nicely Done.
a thought just occurred to me though, you could have actually fitted a 3rd Verse in it, giving it all the more awesomeness, but hey, This Is Rockin enough on its own so 5/5 bud. people will be spreading the word about this for sure.
job well done Real also Happy Halloween :)
This sounds absolutely amazing!
Great job, man :D
Happy Halloween ^ ^
Nicely done, and Happy Halloween!
One of my favorite kinds of metal. I definitely hear the Mastodon influence. Totally kick-ass, and very well mixed and mastered. 5 stars.
