WELL THERE ARE MANY HEAVENS ABOVE no. 7 BUT THIS DEVIL IS CLEVER SHE'S DRESSED IN BLACK LEATHER AND SHE TELLS ME IT'S BETTER TO GO DOWN TOGETHER ROLLING LIKE BULLS, ALL OVER THE HEATHER A KISS IN FOUL WEATHER, AS IF THAT REALLY MATTERS WE'RE SIX & NINE & 101 FEVER LASHES & LIPS MADE ME A BELIEVER AM I THE DECEIVED OR DID MY EYES DECEIVE HER? NOW WE'RE CHAINED TOGETHER FOR WORSE, NOT BETTER NOW WE'RE CHANGED, FOREVER WHEN LOVE IS LUST AND MIND IS MERE MATTER WHEN LUST IS PAIN AND LIVES ON FOREVER IS LIFE SO MUCH BETTER? WE'RE SIX & NINE & 101 FEVER LASHES & LIPS MADE ME A BELIEVER AM I THE DECEIVED OR DID MY EYES DECEIVE HER? WAKE UP BLEEDING IN AN UNHOLY WEDDING SHE'D SUCK ME DRY IF ONLY I'D LET HER SHE'S MY ARMAGEDDON AND SHE'S FIRE AND THUNDER, PULLING ME UNDER BODY AND SOULD SHE TEARS ASUNDER HER PRESENCE MAKES THE PAIN GROW FONDER TO KISS AND KILL THIS LEATHER-CLAD DEVIL I'LL NOT RETURN TILL THE èTH OF NEVER NEVER SHE'S MY FOREVER...

STOLE YOUR HEART FROM THE MUSCLE MOUND SOFT SHELTER FROM THE PAIN THOSE BLACKENED NIGHTS AND DAYS YOU KISSED AWAY REMEMBER THOSE NIGHTS WE WERE PARTNERS IN CRIME AS YOU SWAYED FROM POLE TO POLE? THAT DRUNKEN DANCE OF A DOOMED ROMANCE? REMEMBER THE NIGHTS I HELD YOU TIGHT THE WITCH'S POISON IN MY MIND? WAKE UP GREY TO A DEAD END DAY AS I NUMBLY GAVE YOUR HEART AWAY I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER DARK OCTOBER, BLACK NOVEMBER MISGUIDED LONGING, KEEPING US APART I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER RAIN AND TEARS AND DYING EMBERS BUT I REMEMBER, TRUTH ALL OF YOU YOU TRIED TO EXORCISE THAT DEMON TEMPTRESS BREATHE YOUR NEW LIFE INTO ME, KISS YOUR TRUE LOVE INTO ME BUT HER VENOM IN MY MIND HER POISON PARALYSED CURSED WITH TROUBLED MIND AND SIGHT I CAST YOU OFF INTO THE NIGHT BUT I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER YOUR SWEET SMILE LIVES ON FOREVER I REMEMBER, HOW YOU TRIED AND TRIED AND I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER SLEEPLESS NIGHTS AND SKIN SO TENDER I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER ALL OF YOU I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER DARK OCTOBER, BLACK NOVEMBER MISGUIDED LONGING, KEEPING US APART AND I REMEMBER, STILL REMEMBER RAIN AND TEARS AND DYING EMBERS AND I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER ALL OF YOU ###

about

To make the waiting period for the new album a little easier, and because it's been a while since I last released new music, here's the 'Heaven No.7 E.P.'

While writing for the next album, I realised I had a few song lyrics and some demos that didn't really fit in, either because of the subject matter, or because the music weren't fitting in with the themes I've set up for that album (which is still being worked on, by the way; it's a tough birth).

However, while there are at least two songs that cover a wider sonic territory than usual, for Ahrayeph, at least, this E.P. also serves as a wee taster for what's still to come, as well as a progression of the vintage Ahrayeph sound.

Five songs, close to 25 minutes of music. That's all that matters, isn't it? Lots more to come after this, but this will hopefully tide you over until then.

Enjoy!

Ahráyeph Leuven

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.
