The song lyrics of every one of this bands songs, are to me, simply amazing, and some are very comforting to the times we live in!
Thought I would share!


I'll give a lyric sample and post a video, for those who don't know of them. I highly suggest checking the rest out too! 'specially if you like industrial type music!
Their first album was released in 1995, so I'm betting a lot of you know of them already,

Anyone know of anything similar, instrumental wise, but especially lyric wise?

The Farthest Star.



The will to greatness clouds the mind
Consumes the senses, veils the signs
We each are meant to recognize.
Redeeming graces cast aside
Enduring notions, new found promise,
That the end will never come.

We live in times when all seems lost,
But time will come when we'll look back,
Upon ourselves and on our failings.

Embrace the void even closer still,
Erase your doubts as you surrender everything:

We possess the power,
If this should start to fall apart,
To mend divides,
To change the world,
To reach the farthest star.
If we should stay silent.
If fear should win our hearts,
Our light will have long diminished,
Before it reaches the farthest star.

Wide awake in a world that sleeps
Enduring thoughts, enduring scenes.
The knowledge of what is yet to come.
From a time when all seems lost,
From a dead man to a world.
Without restraint, unafraid and free.

We possess the power,
If this should start to fall apart,
To mend divides,
To change the world,
To reach the farthest star.
If we should stay silent.
If fear should win our hearts,
Our light will have long diminished,
Before it reaches the farthest star.

If we fall and break,
All the tears in the world cannot make
us whole
Again.

We possess the power,
If this should start to fall apart,
To mend divides,
To change the world,
To reach the farthest star.
If we should stay silent.
If fear should win our hearts,
Our light will have long diminished,
Before it reaches the farthest star.

That is so awesome too though! Beautiful!
Monotone voice seems striking to me, teamed with great music, and good lyrics = hit with me


Thanks for sharing, Covenant may just have a new fan!

Thanks wildeagle, I really enjoyed that even though I;m not a big fan of electronica.

Though I'd post one of my favorites that perhaps you might like.
Not all Killing Joke music is like this, most is much harder and rock oriented.
One album called "Brighter than a thousand suns" was much like the song in this video.
Forgive the ad, I couldn't find a version without one




Cheers, ATA

RIP Paul Raven (Bass)
We miss you.

I'm pleased you enjoyed it!

I can be quite partial to rock music, punk being a love of mine too!

The vocalist of this song, does it so well! For the lyrics he is singing, he has this sort of calm demeanor. Given with the words he is singing works excellently.

(fav lines of the lyrics)
Delight and suffering, these roles that we have found.
Nourished by food we eat, hungered by waste excrete



P.S : His hair is ridiculously curly!
I want! *grins*

Personally i'm a fan of lots and lots of electronic styles:

Everything from Goa / Psychedelic trance to the more ambient/dark/industrial side of dubstep and everything inbetween (but not the cheesy Ibiza side of things, I prefer the festivals over that kind of thing).

As a DJ I try to blend lots of electronic styles together, But i'm a sucker for the more psychedelic side of the music.

But for Industrial I'd have to say Velvet Acid Christ



Or




But this is more my thing:



Perfect for relaxing...

or



This song reminds of priceless times a few years ago and is the track that first got me into Psy-Trance.

and this song is just amazing...
