Since Trond went back and redid one of his older songs with amazing results tongue.gif, I got in the same mood and have redone some older songs of mine as well. I also got to add my Steven Slate Drums on this, so that alone improves it a bunch. I got two songs here, Diamond Dog, and Nostalgia For Infinity. Both are some of the first songs I wrote when I was 15 or so, 5+ years ago. So let me know what you think! smile.gif

Lyrics, as usual for those interested:

___________________________________
___________________________________


_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Diamond Dog
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

A mind intrigued by complexity
A mind built for the ultimate challenge
He will stop at nothing to know it's secret
What lies at the top of the spire
It's intelligence a disturbing presence
It's taste for blood unsettling
A mathematical prowess matched by no being
It's puzzle reserved for only the most arcane thinker
Misjudgment punished, Ignorance admonished

I rise to meet this challenge
I will undermine the alien sentience
My mind and body altered to a hideous state
Fusion of man and machine

My brain undergoes it's metamorphosis
My eyes see shapes where there once were none
Thinking in equations and solutions
I notice not what I have become

A voice whispers, Into my sensors....

He has defied, Even the allure of sleep
Resorting to a state of awareness
Machines calculate and balance
A toxic equation

His body has defied, Even the hand of death
Replace, replicate, regenerate
By all means he will conquer
This spire

A man unrecognizable
Beneath a veil of machines
His humanity lost
Somewhere amongst his desire
To succeed
A purpose unclear
A will obscured
His mind not what we knew
His persona erased
Beneath a veil of machines

Diamond Dog

A mind intrigued by complexity
A mind built for the ultimate challenge
He will stop at nothing to know it's secret
What lies at the top of the spire
It's intelligence a disturbing presence
It's taste for blood unsettling
A mathematical prowess matched by no being
It's puzzle reserved for only the most arcane thinker
Misjudgment punished, Ignorance admonished

Severed limbs serve only as his mental marker
Of where he left his problems unsolved
I walk away in a tearful stride
Leaving behind what I loved to the spire

Nostalgia For Infinity
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


Here I stand on the edge of a machine
A spherical mass, Dwarfing the Sun
Faced with the ultimate end of existence
My eye's stare into infinity

I walk along the surface of light
Contemplating how it will end for me
I know there is no other choice
I must make my sacrifice

Heart and mind
Are conflicted
As I force, My hand into the sphere
I am soon consumed in it's light
Falling inside this machine
My arms desperately try to grasp
Something, but nothing, In eternity

Here I stand inside of this machine
Vertigo obscuring, All my vision
The figures before me barely shadows
Try to explain this feeling to me

Mind is relaxing, The pain is fading
My feelings of fear have subsided
Is this the life, That awaits me after death
Is this to be my continuance

I feel like a ghost in purgatory
Held between life and death
Existence stopped in a moment of time
A pause for a breath

Welcome to a simulated world
This is to be your existence
Body has died, But life pushes on
Mind integrated in this machine
A massive, galactic, Universal brain
Infinite in it's calculations

We have remained here for 900 years
Studying life that never has been seen

Isolated from the outside worlds
Contained in our digital spheres

Our bodies perished so long ago
But we live on in the form of information
We know you do not belong here
Your destiny awaits in the coldness of space
Take we have to impart to you
Our infinite knowledge


Here I stand on the edge of the machine
Arms open, and ready to leave
A short breath I take before....

....Light Speed!

Once again I had to raise vocals on NFI, I always mix them too low to begin with for some reason.

Thanks a lot! And yeah its me singing, but the vocal takes are about a year and a half old and not as good as they can be. I'd like to re-record them.

Hey there, both songs sound very good! I really like re-doing old songs after time passes as I get fresh ideas how to improve them.

Hey Unc,

I like everything about them. Good stuff. Personally, I'm not into growling (or screaming) - Marco Hietala is about as growly as I like it laugh.gif . But from a technical/musical perspective, they are very good for the genre. Lyrics, vocals, music all work together.

Hey Uncreator,

i think i never wrote something about your songs, and i am so long here at GMC. That's a shame. I love all your work and listen to all your songs. They are all so intense and it's fun to listen to it. I also like your taste in music. You know some great bands biggrin.gif

cheers and keep up the good work

Ed
