Desert of Ashes


(Guitar INTRO)
(Keyboard – AH)
(GNARL VOCALS FULL)

Argh
Stalk the prey
Melt the shadows in shame
Stare at the eyes
Living a life, but dead within

(+TEMPO)

Slice the circle
Embrace the fire
Dig the claws to
Rape the soul within

The sight of the wanderer
In the black desert of ashes
The black moon
Quenches the mind’s
Bloody thirst

The realm of the beast
Grins from the skeleton throne
Kiss the undead to the
The victory of death

Woman in a Window said...

Brosreview, you have to come over for tea. I'm beginning to worry 'bout you.

I do like the skeleton throne image. And I get the skivers, so I think that means success.

Brosreview said...

@Woman in a Window - I appreciate the concern.

Thank you!!!

This is heavy stuff! Wicked man! When you said heavy metal music is your genre you weren't kidding about it!

When this one hits the top of the charts, I hope to finally say that I knew that talented guy who wrote this song.

This line conveys so much:
"Living a life, but dead within"
Great imagery in this piece.

Alexandra Garland said...

Hi Ajey,
This is all I try to block from my space... Dark… yes, but unfortunately so common… You do have the way of seeing the core of human existence and convey that so well to the form of a song or poem. Superb is the word of the day!!

@Alexandra - Thank you!!!

"Slice the circle
Embrace the fire

"Dig the claws to
Rape the soul within"? whew!!!

Caustic soul, Desert of ashes and Burn the eternal shadows, these three titles would fit in to one album magnificently..

Feeling the chill in Chennai's hottest summer...

asusual unusual :D

Nice work.
