Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Soundbite

When Ronnie presented this we all knew where we were goanna begin with the album. I could have sworn he was writing about the situation I was in in my personal life but he couldn’t have known and as a result I grasped at the chance to make this my own.

 

I love the opportunity to deliver when my own natural voice is put a side and I can become someone or something else, like method acting I guess… Musically the juxtapose in textures from section to section supports the story of love passion and the forbidden fruits...

Harvest Moon is about fate and destiny. We all arrive at the same place, in the same condition, regardless of who we are or how we have lived.

 

The musical themes have been around for some time, in fact, most of the component parts were written before XXV began. It is purposely gothic, dark and violent – setting the scene for the perpetrator, who is who he is.

 

The Obol,
The final toll
The price of death,
For one and all.
Good or evil, great or small, 
Deliverance is the same for all

Ronnie brought this track to the band and it really is a cracker. I love Ronnie’s lyrics and they really work with the artwork that accompanies the track.

 

Again, if memory serves me, Ronnie’s original version was quite long and we spent quite a lot of time experimenting with different arrangements.

 

The “Let Go” end chorus always sends a shiver up my spine.

 

Graeme

Graeme MurrayOor Ronnie pitched up with this dark little piece! Loved it straight away, as soon as the skull crusher riffs kicked in. I wonder what Ron gets up to of an evening as this has a great insight into the tragedy of the Vampire!

Lyrics

 

Outside, night sky

Pale moon, way up high

Space, time, rending torn

Air burns, something forms

Black wings, unfold 

Take flight, take hold

Bird-beast, blood lust

Suck you dry, turn to dust

 

Harvest moon is in the sky

Who will live and who will die?

Who will wash away my sin?

Dim the lights, the show begins

 

Mirror mirror on the wall

Who is the sweetest of them all

Rest in peace, antiquity

Vanquished soul and empathy

Someone loves me, this I know

The Bible tells me so

 

Out of your head and into the night

The human sea, the blood, the light

Over the river the hunt begins 

The primal desire, the city, the sin

Drink, drink deep from the mortal still

Drink from the heartflow, the spirit, the will

 

Jesus loves me! 

This I know

For the Bible tells me so

Little ones to Him belong

They are weak, but I am strong

 

Let go, can you see the river?  

Can you see him waiting ?

Waiting by the water

Reaching for his Obal 

Reaching for your mouth

Reaching for your soul

Do you want to cross?

Do you want the cross?

Eclectic Electric Lyrics

CREEP

 

You walk into the room with an air of self-importance,
Strut around like you own the place.
Handing out opinions like some king without the wisdom.
You think your it, but you’re just a waste of space.

I don’t like to judge a book by its cover

 

BUT YOU’RE A CREEP, YES A CREEP!

 

You don’t who you hurt, or who you might offend
Oblivious to the consequences of your words
Your mouth moves and words come out but you don’t see a thing
You look, but you a just a fool.

I don’t like to judge a book by its cover

 

BUT YOU’RE A CREEP, YES A CREEP!

 

Ascension

 

I have a question, you have no answer,
I don’t need a reason, why I'm pulling the anchor
Adrift on the water, in a boat on a sea
I don’t know where I’m going; I don’t know where I’ve been
Is this the beginning, or is it the end
Will I rise up, or will I descend

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

There’s a horizon, at the end of the sea
There’s someone out there, is it you or is it me
I'm walking the shore line, will take my hand?
Burning turning earth is churning, its time to ascend

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

No time for reflection, in the eye of the storm
I look in the mirror, is it time to move on
There’s an oasis, at the end of the line
There’s a dream just out of reach, is it yours or is it mine

 

Ascension
OHH OHH OHH OHH!
Ascension

 

 

One step on


I feel like a cog in a broken machine
I've been living my life in another’s dream
I've tried so hard to be a better man
I had a plan but the plan was a sham.
One step forward going on
Two steps back, what’s going wrong?
Three steps more, I'm losing my charm
Four more back, can you hear the alarm?

 

Down..I'm falling down
spinning round
but the wheels keep on turning
found... I've lost my crown
going underground.
but the years keep on turning

 

Look at the world through my open eyes
all I see is greed, all I hear are lies.
I don't heed what the rulers say
Money makes them happy and it's us who pays
I'll keep fighting to the end
I'll never give up; I'll never give in
The finish line is up ahead
If the wheels stay on and I don’t lose my head

 

Down..I'm falling down
I'm spinning round
and the wheels keep on turning
gone...I've lost the song
now I'm going to ground
but the wheels keep on turning

 

One step two steps three and four
five step on and nevermore
six and seven and eight and nine
ten is all I'm drawing a line.

 

 

In This Broken World

 

When I look into your eyes, there’s darkness in the fire. 
You wear a golden mask, but there's tears behind the smile.
There’s more to this than meets the eye, in a world of twisted things.
It’s not hard to see the reasons why, what is, and what should have been.

 

I want to trust you, but it’s so hard to do.
You'll never give it up; you'll never let me in.
Behind the cool facade, you’re tearing us apart.
Your heart is made if steel, and the pain is all too real.

 

We're beginners, saints and sinners,
in this, game of losers and winners.
But we must strive, to survive,
and make a difference, in this broken world.

 

So how can I love you dear, when you’re pushing me away?
Your unreachable, untouchable, but you’ll let me in one day

 

I want to trust you, but it’s so hard to do.
You'll never give it up; you'll never let me in.
Behind the cool façade, your heart is made if steel,
and the pain is all too real.

 

We're beginners, saints and sinners
in this, game of, losers and winners.
But we must strive, to survive,
and make a difference, in this broken world.

 

 

Left It Behind

 

Ah, see how the mighty can fall
Your vision stated, convictions and all
Once more left my senses beguiled
Drawn to the answer that hides in your soul

Oh such a precious way, though I left it 
I still dream of truth every night, though I left it


Paint the sky and truth has happened

Keeps burning its way through my mind
You’re in confusion at the wink of an eye
This simply just ain’t worth my while
I left it behind

Oh such a beautiful way to wave with your so called love
I still dream of truth every night, though I left it


Paint the sky and truth has happened


You’ve got to take this higher
You’ve go to kick this higher
And on and on, and on and on,

I don’t want to go it alone
