timmac This disc is even better than The Price of Retribution ... I love it! Almost all cleans here and in about the same headspace as Katatonia. Good stuff! Favorite track: Tru.

Fractured Spine Finland

Experimental, atmospheric, melodic. Although many death/doom metal elements are present in most songs, it would be difficult to categorize Fractured Spine strictly in that genre. The band still draws its main influences from outside the metal genre.

Track Name: Their Last Decision
Gazing far
Into distance
Shoulders down
Weary and hollow inside

You trembled upon
"See the air is getting colder"
"Take my hand and hold on"
"Let us not grow any older".
Track Name: Tru
What will the book say?
Have you been living by all those rules?
Not leading astray
And chosen within to share the truth

Felt like it was yesterday
Without a meaning
Without a cause
You started to drift away
into the deepness of your loss

Oh, Tru...

And into the red dawn
Look up to the sky when I am gone
Now will you be seeing me?
And still you believe it?
Still you'll be preaching?

I want you to move on
(look around)
But when you are feeling you can't go on
(I) won't ask you to live on
(Nothing to live for)
(Nothing to give to you)

Oh, Tru
Why do they fail to see the truth?
Oh, Tru
If only they'd listen to you.
Track Name: Ever Dawn
Could not face the day
Not erase the pain
Wipe away the shame
or forget the blame

Have just one more firl
Have your golden girl
Daytime come the dawn
Feel your life withdrawn.
Track Name: After All (Bonus Track)
And for a moment
that could have changed


Had you stayed
just for a while before
that quick "goodbye"

Hurrying back to your life

And could it have changed
how you feel?
How you felt

Comforted, swayed
your decision that day
Held those thoughts away...

Did you ever give
a thought to what's
left behind?

After all this time

All your dreams now
so meaningless
Nothing left

And after the time
passes by
Our forgotten lives
When memories
fade to distant outcries

That picture - a reminder
And just for a while:
I wish I remembered
how it once felt to smile.
