preciousken Sounds and Shadows : I have reviewed a few singles from the Boston witchy harvest dark rock. It's striking and powerful with hints of Switchblade Symphony with a brighter flowing tang. Favorite track: The Besieged.

bigt1919 I came across this band via the Post-Punk website. They remind me a bit of post punk bands I like (X Mal Deutschland, the Banshees etc etc) without being a copy. Hopefully one day they will tour the UK , I would love to see them live. Favorite track: The Visitor (Remastered).

Someone is knocking at the door I know who’s coming My body shivers With nausea and cold I wonder if I can survive Another battle facing Its acrid hiss Its rusty teeth Its eyes are thirty thousand It wears red tore garments It grows in corners It feeds on locked preys Chorus: Prowling in silence, The Greatest Dread wipes out the fields and Crawling, marauding, It spreads the fear Waiting in darkness, The blow will fall on me anytime now Blaring in nightmares, The roaring drums bring up a cursed sign Someone is breaking through the wall I hear its fast pace The clock’s tick-tock Thrusts my chest I will drawn once more tonight Surrounded by its soldiers Their names are heinous Bad omens (Chorus)

Savor the fall Bask in else’s fault While you’re there standing quietly Must be so good and fun Never to become the suspect How much do you pay To sleep at night? To guard your dreams of A world pure and white You feel threatened by Their kids at night But yours ain’t those Shot in the back And what do you know Of reason or love? You only send Prayers and thoughts Chorus: You’re trapped into negation No way out of your nation Because In God You Trust You crave for acclamations Love and admiration We all know you work so hard You run from your reflection That’s so far from salvation Just like the rest of us You’ll get no invitation Despite your dedication You also will be left behind Flaunt the badges of law Hide behind a wall The dirt under the rug you all deny Blind and deaf to your vice You play and don’t wanna pay the price You deserve it Gotta take it Build your own way Never used help Don’t remember Where you come from You were born just right (Chorus) Lies! Lust! Pride! Wrath! Envy! Sloth! Murder! Rob! And you still want more!

Haven 05:02
When I wake up tomorrow I’d like to feel the sun shining on me To breath the fresh air flowing down the mountain Under the sky so blue that will mend my heart Oh how I wish their filthy voices For one day would be shut down And all I could hear were the woods soughing An autumn morning Leaves whooshing through the roads They play with birds Show them some new songs Chorus: I just need a beacon that breaks the night While walking such a strenuous journey A prairie, so balmy and endless where I can lay And release and loosen my clenched old hands The rain blinds my eyes Cleans my sore feet It covers me with its cloak Full of mercy Gently, like kind genies The quietness, the blankness The quietness, the blankness, the quietness Take over my veins I let myself go smiling Chorus: I just need a beacon that breaks the night While walking such a strenuous journey A prairie, so balmy and endless where I can lay I just need a beacon to guide the journey A balmy prairie to take a break And release my hands

The Besieged 04:32
Another day and all they want Is to stay in bed So they don't have to go out So they don't have to hide From the glances and the jerks Getting in the way Cause they have broken the mold Cause they belong to no box Everyone is telling lies Even their reflection’s smile That’s not who they are For how long they will keep explaining Ties or heels It doesn’t mean anything But how far they are From their own sweet land of freedom Chorus: All that they dream somedays Is going out the streets and not be pointed And be back home safe tonight But they don’t want to blend in Only live within their own skin As the years are passing by Their friends move on with their lives But they are still here, eyes to the ceiling And mama’s waiting for her first grandchild Lonely, sometimes it’s lonely That’s the life of those who fight Those who are the most alive Chorus: All that they dream somedays Is going out the streets and not be pointed And be back home safe tonight But they don’t want to blend in They don’t wanna tame their spirit Only live within their own skin

Withered 04:18
When the lights are down and red This greedy urge blows up my head Only in these velvet chairs I can free myself of my old age Bring us some more wine Let’s toast to youth and bliss And their painful wake up Look upon those glorious stars Why would they care for me? You’re still looking for your gods They crushed into dust ages ago As we’ll become ashes soon And nobody will recall our voice Chorus: Summers are short and all we’re left with Are sour fruits and wasted love songs Our treasures will slip away Through the corners of memory As they turn black You think that you will be safe You have earned your own place Somewhere else You and these good fellows around Silence is coming for all of us Bring us one more round Let’s drink to our white lilies That will never come back Look, the tide is rising fast Travelers got no shelter Chorus: Summers are short and all we’re left with Are sour fruits and wasted love songs Our treasures will slip away Through the corners of memory As they turn black Bloomers are so bright under the moonlight Let’s roam the flowered fields tonight Some day soon their fragrance will spoil And all light and colors Will then turn black

You were once a worshipped queen These days you are despised and forgotten People sit you on their knees They spit on you wholeheartedly But if only I was allowed to kiss your footprints If I could always feel your breeze of grace The current is so cold and loud I can barely hear your whispers now I’ve been searching for ages and miles Sometimes you’ve given me a ray of light But people walk in circles and fall over the horizon Writhing in vanity and hunger Chorus: Dazed as a child, I bow at your silhouette My heart races uncontrollably You’re my captain in countless nights without stars When I die please hold me tight in your arms The lonely, the wicked, the forsaken They all ring around your roses You always will offer escape and solace But only to those who will take the chance But if only I was allowed to kiss your footprints If I could always feel your breeze of grace Chorus: Dazed as a child, I bow at your silhouette My heart races uncontrollably You’re my captain in countless nights without stars When I die please hold me tight ‘till you leave me Out of my mind, I feel when I see your face Your eyes will burn my soul relentlessly You’re my rock and I won’t be lost if you take my hand When I die please hold me tight in your arms

It is so warm around the fountain The Green Fairy blesses our night The blurry air burns all our worries The Enchantress Woman calls with open arms We’re gonna invite Alice to bike the road with us The concrete melts and colors vibe down We see their faces stripped out of their lies Our words have so much meaning There is no tomorrow looming When the luring boxes broadcast mesmeric eerie chords Chorus: Oh, the wind brings tales of unexplored pleasures We’re gladly lost holding this sweet chaos like a treasure As we dance our wild hearts join under the moonlight There is no temple where we belong Sated with ambrosia, we lay on the grass Betting on bright unicorns while it still lasts The bells announce the end Soon the spell will break We’ll spread like dandelion clocks in the vanishing mist (Chorus)
8.
I’m done with all Can’t take it anymore I’m done with all We’re rotten to the core I hate the smiles Crowds and shining mornings I despise The frills and the wasting Life goes by All gray bits and quelling I’m chained down To futility and mess I’m done with all The fear and the control I’m done with all Can’t wait to see it fall Chorus: I won’t let them get away with Wringing gold from our souls Loud will resound Our enraged rebellion songs We can live bravely Be heroes some days Before be swallowed by the waves of time Colorful and bright! All way through the night! Oh, we’ll thrive despise the plight I’m done with all Can’t take it anymore I’m done with all Can’t wait to see it fall My clenched old hands No rest for the wicked I don’t mind Their gods nor the silver Life seeps by And I’m out of tickets I’m deprived Of my every ray of light But… (Chorus)

8 § 1227 04:30
Beyond that hill the world is waiting for us I’ve heard the stories of abundance and peace I know there’s danger ahead, I know we might not make it But gotta go anyways, there’s nothing left for us here Only pain and misery Dicen en el pueblo que se acercan aquí de nuevo… Y por diez mil pesos te llevan Y te cruzan la frontera Hay un gentío en la plaza Listos pa’ dejar sus casas Aún sin pasaporte Ni pisto que los soporte Se ven ya trepando el muro Besando el suelo del Norte Ah ah, ahí van Van quedando atrás Madre, tierra, sangre y muerte Al frente arena y nopal Oh, the sun is so bright upon our heads Can only think of our next step Les han llegado ayer las nuevas De Óscar y de Valeria Se agota la suerte Ronda la muerte Y aunque del otro lado Tras chota, moche y nado Wacha! La migra acecha El cerco se estrecha Ah ah, ahí van All them being locked up Miedo, espera, juicio y muerte Can’t afford to be thrown back Oh, why are our screams so silent Silent, silent, silent, silent Even those who can’t yet count their age Already know too well a cage And don’t remember mama’s face Fallen forever from grace

Pilgrims of Yearning Boston, Massachusetts

The children of the Golden Age

Now wander far away

Through the lands of the fathers /

In the otherness.

No yearning can make them come back anymore?

Will our eyes ever see them?
