about

"‘An Everlasting Silence’ is melodic, Doom-laden with various hues and moods and has multi-faceted approach which makes it a remarkable album."

"this is tasteful, well-formed melodic doom metal which is wise never to bore the listener to tears, instead relying on its own, mournful essence to generate that same, salty result."

"(An Everlasting Silence is...) an album that demands more than a few listens to really dig past the surface, with considerable bounty waiting in the depths for those willing to take the time to journey down. "

Track Name: Behold this is Guilt
(Lyrics: Fortier)
Stay away, stay far away from here
You might get caught up in a suicidal trend
Don't come too close, don't come at all
Pessimism is a plague I depend upon

Don't think because I smile, I mean well
Don't think I mean anything at all

A deceiving grin, a reluctant smile
Misery's alone so stay awhile
A numbing fear of what we lost
And bridges that we never crossed

Born again
To nothing
Empty eyes
Show nothing
Where once
We were something

A deceiving grin, a reluctant smile
Misery's alone so stay awhile
A numbing fear of what we lost
And bridges that we never crossed
Everything is fading
Everything is dead
Lead me back to the life I once led
Spare me the consequences
Track Name: Into the Arms of the Heavens
(Lyrics: Fortier)
Examine the tangible
The gifts of life
The meaningful and meaningless
As we learn
To love and share laughter
And grief
In the blink of an eye
The tears drip from the cheek
And fall to the floor
Soundless
Shapeless
As all the candles
Have been extinguished
As the waters freeze over
And the ruins become ancient
We will wander through
Our dreams made of time
Here, they stand before us
The marble passageways
That will lead us to life
To play a funeral dirge
To dance among the ancient fires
To cast away the fallen
Into the arms of the heavens
Track Name: Crumbling Pillars
(Lyrics: Fortier / Vezina)
We can't run
You can't hide
Behind the open door
Beyond the broken wall
The sun is gone...

As a witness of your strength
I can testify my weakness
I crumble beneath you
My love

Your beauty
It comforts me

We can't run
You can't hide
Behind the open door
Beyond the broken wall
The sun is gone…
Track Name: Forced to Submit
(Lyrics: Fortier / Vezina)
Darkest places
In your mind
Clouds your senses
It makes you blind
To all your inner hate
It shows upon your face
I see through your withered eyes
I know you’re dead inside

Alas these mortal eyes
Look upon the lonesome grave
Where no one mourns... no one mourns
This hollow heart is grasping for another
Someone to hold, someone to touch
Help me

What have you, what have you done
This can’t all be gone
What have you, what have you done
Your face was my last sun

Darkest places in your mind…
Track Name: The Valley of Tears
(Lyrics: Fortier / Vezina)
Last night, you came to me in a dream
With promising hopes of paradise
Angel wings burst from your back
But I'm not sure I believe my senses

The emptiness, the emptiness is gone
(These mortal eyes
Have deceived me before)
Don’t hide away, don’t hide away and die
(Shrouded in chaos
Consumed by death)

This is a passageway
From to life to everlasting
From life to everlasting love

With what little courage I had left
We tried to ease her pain
I made her a promise
We would be again
Track Name: Final Farewell
(Lyrics: Fortier)
I fall to my knees before you
With pain in your eyes, you speak to me
Whispers of numbing solace
Hushed from your crimson lips

I buried you...
Watched you fall before me
Now your ghost haunts me
And I long for your touch
I buried you...
What do you want from me?

Your ghost is more than a memory
What could you want from me?

One day you will be mine
As I venture into the shadowland
I see your beautiful visage
Take my hand and lead me away
