Brita DellaBarca Amazing album, some really beautiful moments. Can't wait for the next one Favorite track: To Feel Alive.

Glenn A massive step up from the previous EP, this is quite amazing for a one man band from Lower Hutt, New Zealand. There are familiarities to some well known doomdeath bands but nevertheless a fair bit of variety, with quieter moments and some clean vocals along the way. A good balance overall. For only US$5 this is excellent value. Can't actually pick a clear favourite track so I went with one that invokes one of my all time faves, My Dying Bride. Favorite track: To Feel Alive.

Track Name: Treatment Begins
I awake to find no one can hear me
Tonight, I am here on my own
The sights, the colours are escaping
I'll stay right here where they left me

Maybe I'm trapped in fearful apprehension
Forever waiting for a moment of clarity
The pale white coats, the empty space to which they led me
This has become my final place

I like to sleep in darkness
To leave behind the shadows
And in the evening whispers
I thrash alone in anguish

Restlessly wait for sunrise
A fickle game to be played
And with the light of morning
Treatment begins, oh help me

Through all the horror and the nightmares
The restless sleep, insanity
The walls cave in to frown upon me
Track Name: Where You Left Me to Drown
Pushed into the fire
Where you left me to drown
I yearned to take you to a place
Where the sun sets forever

Pull yourself into me
Never let go
And I will be king
Until we end the night

Neverending, the plight of our loneliness
The sound of a dying swallow
Swept to the frost below

I heard you whisper in the silence
Sweetly, with endeavour
Beyond the last wretched cinders
A candle lights the way
Track Name: Still Waiting
Please remember in the morning
When the doctors try to wake you
The dreams we had for tomorrow
It never comes, but I'm still waiting

Please remember tomorrow
When the tears flow down from your eyes
The way you looked at me
And how you felt in my arms
Track Name: Sang the Bird From Its Cage
Track Name: To Feel Alive
Step to a quiet place
Where spirits fly
And protruding signs stop drowning out your vision
And know the taste
To swallow up each drop of hope
Falling just for you

Until the moment's gone it's yours forever
So hold on tight just like you're dreaming
And when you wake it will be gone
Hold on
Brace yourself

Lost in the moment
When the street lights turn off
A smile left frozen on his face
A wretched body left to be
Track Name: Forever
Why don't you stay, lay here with me forever
Through frost, through rain and moonlit nights
Until we find eternal rest beneath the soil
I'll pray we never die

The bird of death will take me under its wing
And fly me to a place where things will never be the same

Some day you'll follow me, when light begins to fade
And shadow sweeps over the earth on your own darkest day

So stay with me beside the fire
Before it's too late
We'll let our dreams forever take us higher
