-III- As the Lights go Down In your Eyes, way Down Blackened Holes and Hollow Heat The Beating Sun shines on Defeat Swallowed by the Sand The Hand This Barren Wasteland Grains tear through Flesh Bleeding every Step And still remain Obsessed Crawl on and on Crawl on and on Under the Desert Sun I, Bastard Son! I, Bastard Son! -IV- And I wait And still So Still And I wait Sunset fades And I fade I wait And I crave And still Madness raves And I crave I thirst For the Grave In Grace For the Grave I crave And I see See me Staring back At me And I see A Stare So Cold So Old Prelude to Blue And Yellow Death too Sweltering Dunes Of Madness and Moons Clarity's Haze By The Senseless, erased And getting there late They're sealing my Fate Space fills with Silence And Silence is Empty And deafens The Dying Heart Deadens my Senses To Outer Dimensions And leadens my footsteps I'm dragging through Quicksand Soul turned to Stone Abandoned, forlorn Scarred, Torn Ripped by Scorn Dressed Down with Lies By Power-Mad Eyes Pretending Pretenses... Berating the Shallow Frighteningly Fallow Down to their Marrow Leaving me harrowed Straight through my Sorrow I see no Tomorrow Leaving me Hollow Leaving me Hollow But some day, some day we'll see The Summerland (repeat several times) Again Oh will we see These shores again To walk again Through the Meadowlands And lie again 'Neath Shadow's Hands Free at last Unburdened by the Past Or Fates yet uncast The Promised Land... -V- Mild Oasis, Golden Hell Keeper of the Poison Well Toxic Keep in which I Dwell Tempting Life and Pleasure In Unequal Measure Frivolity and Careless Leisure Treasured Love, Silent Scream Sacrificial Fever Dream Falls apart - at the Seams While the Caravan of Dead Robbed with Unabated Breath Elders' Wisdom, bereft Left Unsaid Left Unsaid! Retire to your Dreams And the Lives they bequeath Clarity Unsheathed Thrive on this Outside Live on its Insights Never hide Comes the Mourning Dawn The Abyss looms, a Life forlorn All Hope gone All Hope GONE! ***
Perish 06:12
Shallow Walking Wounded Proudly headed for the Fall Eyes gaze at Illusion, in Dominant Confusion Polarised and ostracising Misplaced Soul, pleading Absolution Shame, Shame upon me now Meet thy Woman, Misery Take her hand, be led astray Love is THE Illusion The Third Art's Delusion Chain your Self, Degrade yourself Perish Let your Self be washed away Shame, Shame upon me now Mind turns to Insanity Unclean Soul, still Unforgiven And dying in the Womb of its Heart Unbeaten Heart of Darkness Carved, Bloodless High in Lows and Excess Sincere Humiliation, Carnal Frustration Subject yourself To Intellectual Flagellation Somewhere in the Distance, a Light shines insistent But the Vision fades It fades!


With this E.P., the time has come to close the book on Ahrayeph until further notice. I hope you liked the ride, I know I did. But right now, other musical endeavours are calling me, and I must answer that call.

But I'm leaving you with just over half an hour of music. Back in the 70's, when vinyl ruled the music world, that was considered an entire album! But times have changed, and now you can get half an hour's worth of music in this extended play form, for just 4.5 Euros, which I think is a fair price, considering the amount of music on this release. And I've included all the necessary artwork in PDF form as well : front and back cover art, lyric sheet and even a CD label, for those of you who want a hard copy and can print on CD's.

I hope that, together with everything that came before, this last hurrah will leave you satisfied until such time as I see fit to delve into the dark crevasses of my twisted mind again. Thank you for listening, fare thee well...

Prog, Goth, Rock, something music-y. Definitely dark. Dark is good. If you like dark music with the odd odd time signatures thrown in with the melancholy, this is your place to be.
