Doom Metal Darryl I absolutely LOVE this album. The songs are intricate and musicianship is professional. The clean singing is plaintive and vulnerable, and then he switches to those apocalyptic death growl detonations that just destroy. This album is truly satisfying. Favorite track: Unforgiven March.

Scumbag Incredibly complex, but with a ton of obvious talent behind it this album is easy to enjoy! Strong goth and doom overtones layered within prog metal structures which also contain elements of death metal taking you through many territories along the way. And I love those backing choral harmony effects which float in from time to time! Give this a listen and you'll surely want to hear more!

Update: Needed the physical copy! Favorite track: Disclaiming My Faults.

about

BadMoodManMusic/SolitudeProductions presents the debut album by an Italian band (EchO)!
Outstanding music which cannot be limited by the frames of a certain style combines heavy guitars with atmospheric keyboards, deep growling and clean male vocals while the music varies from extreme death doom metal to aerial post rock. «DevoidOfIllusions» is based on perfect performance and intent attention to details such as arrangement or CD artwork.
The album was recorded in UK at Priory Recording Studios (Sutton Coldfield) and CMATStudios (Birmingham, UK) and produced by Greg Chandler (vocals and guitars in Esoteric) who also appeared as vocalist at the final track!

Track Name: Summoning The Crimson Soul
Your hands chained... they know what I know... Your beauty... for a long time I’ve looked for your crimson face, But in vain I search for the flame of life...

Lost in a loveless rain, lost in a black sky... Summoning the crimson soul... Your red lips die upon mine... At the end of times I’ll fade away.

All we had it was hour of passion... Can you forgive yourself for your faults? All is covered by blood... I can’t breath anymore... I can’t breath anymore...

...and this night will end in tears... ...and time fades away... We’re falling down, So down we touch the ground.... My fear begins only now in these hours of despair... We die for love...

Lost in a loveless rain, lost in a black sky... Summoning the crimson soul... Your red lips die upon mine... At the end of times I’ll fade away.
Track Name: Unforgiven March
Stop beating, and let me tell you something... This place will be your last cage. You are the part of me that I want to hide, But tears you’re crying are falling from my eyes... Nothing will remain, only emptiness... Now I’ll lock the door and march away, And wait for the worms to consume you...

When hope is lost, When darkness is pain, No more love...no more hate... When the end is here, Just me and my denied chance, The time of doom has come...

I’m the unforgiven...The one who lost his own compassion. No one will save you from me... I’m the beginning and the end, I’m the only one who could understand The way you’re feeling in your own cage... I’ll keep you locked away, this is my rage.

Bring me down and raise my grace. Set me free at the presence of forgiveness... Break me down and take my prayer, all that remains... Go away and leave me alone... just let me die... Remember him who refused his life, the last thing possessed ...

When hope is lost, When darkness is pain, No more love...no more hate... When the end is here, Just me and my denied chance, The time of doom has come...
Track Name: The Coldest Land
I’ve never heard any smile... with a true shine... I’ve never seen other eyes... without a broken life...

Son of the sun, don’t be afraid, We are shadows underground. We escape to survive. I’m not what you think, there’s no love in my heart... I just want to understand... I just felt to... I wish you felt...

I’m from the coldest land, Where the sun like a slave, doesn’t mean anything... This is the coldest land, Where death is a friend and the pain doesn’t care.

We had no chance. Chosen by fate, not to be involved in the cruelty of man. Don’t judge those who are lonely by choice... Grant me peace now... my place is not beside you.
Chorus: I’m from the coldest land, Where the sun like a slave, doesn’t mean anything... This is the coldest land, Where death is a friend and the pain doesn’t care.

Son of this sun, you can’t understand This is my life. My frozen heart has stopped beating long time ago. My skin is so dry, the sun will never warm me again. No reflection in the eyes for those who have seen death... This is my life.
Track Name: Internal Morphosis
Can’t you see this on my pale skin? Don’t you know why you pray for me? Fears become real in this shell...
Can’t you see this in my rotten heart? Don’t you know why distress grips you? In this head time no longer exists...
I remain trapped in this empty body That I don’t recognized anymore...

...holding life for a lie...

Oh, internal morphosis... Never stops growing in my brain...

Reality distorts From the pressure of this deadly illness In my guts.
Sentenced to suffer in this wasteland My breath slows down...

...holding life for a lie...

Oh, internal morphosis... Never stops growing in my brain...

I feel the disease pulsing in my veins... Gripping my senses and destroying my certainty... I’ll never forget the weight of this burden That will leave me here, stuck on this floor... Now I’ll see the end as it is: cold, hard and ruthless. Let me die in this suffering...death is nothing but a passage...

Oh, internal morphosis... Never stops growing in my brain...
Track Name: Omnivoid
In this time I’m lost again, So I take my last long breath... Everything I saw was an illusion, So I reach the deep black void...

Ghosts of emptiness Devour my last hopes For what they are.

Over me phosphoric sky Is falling down at my feet. There’s no return from this journey Blind eyes stare at me...

Whispering words of fear Devour my last hopes For what they are.

I take the last breath... What I saw is dead...
Track Name: Disclaiming My Faults
Against your life I scream for what you are! Nothing else you see. In vain we accept to pretend... It’s awful to see the doom... I reject these chains. Release my tears... Oh, can’t you see my repugnance?

It’s in your eyes...

Whispering a deadly lullaby...it must end tonight... Cover my sight... Cover my sinfulness... Your primordial fears are the same as mine... Can I smother my child with a pillow? ...disclaiming my faults...

It’s in your eyes...

Against your life I scream for what you are! Nothing else you see. In vain we accept to pretend... It’s awful to see the doom... I reject these chains. Release my tears... Oh, can’t you see my repugnance?

It’s in your eyes...

Smother my child with a pillow...

Everything will be gone again... Impossible to describe my pain... I’m intoxicated by my suffering...
Track Name: Once Was A Man
When the city’s lights turn on in our streets, When coldness takes your breath, Usually you pray in this way. It’s fine... When your fire is blown out...

When the city’s lights turn on Snow awaits... You became too old for this life... The regret that you have inside your heart Poisons the veins...

You will die underneath the black sky... No one can help you now for this last moment... That’s the end of who once was a man...

Do you recall The life, that kept your dreams confined? Your dreams and your hopes... Why? Why suffer for so long?...

When the city’s lights turn on in our streets, And their eyes are closed... You know that the time has come...

You will die underneath the black sky... No one can help you now for this last moment... That’s the end of who once was a man...
Track Name: Sounds From Out Of Space (feat. Greg Chandler)
In the presence of the stars I remain astonished... The screams form other worlds... Echo inside my head... The burden of the unknown pushes me down! In this chaos of madness I’ve lost my mind... Hallucinations are my reality.

Space and time have no meaning for me. I’ve seen more than I can take I no longer distinguish reality from dreams... I could disappear as the last of stars, In the deepest darkness, at the end of all time...

...and my faith falters for these sounds from outer space that takes me away...
