• If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
  • At times so self destructive with no intent or motive, but behind this emotion, there lies a sensible heart.
  • I’m in no shape for a new day, I'm in no mood for a better place or a fix or your pretty face. I’m just not in the mood.
  • Say something and close the door, And break the silence in our room, Hold your breath, let you through, Just for a moment this is our shelter.
  • With your hands wide open, 
Renew the days we all thought lost, 
Renew the days, 
Let go, 
Release, revolve, renew
  • don’t even try, 
to maximize these plans, 
I steal, 
I catch this wind, 
after all of my lies, 
don’t you dare fall for, 
how I could be depends, 
on the cold you bring
  • And if my heart just stops, keep me alive for a minute.
I want to know if a curtain drops.
  • So I don't care if you dance well
'cause fashion can't replace content and passion is lost between scene points and greasy hair.
  • I speak in sarcasm to relate to all the things I appreciate
I lie in rhythm to open doors I follow suit and just want more
  • Stay tame, soft river, while we weigh our faith, stay sweet, run softly, sweet river, the fool who wades in doubt will float like concrete.
  • You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for.
  • New wars. New kings. The pigs came here to take everything. No wars. No kings. We gotta stop the blood-letting.
  •  I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees, I'd rather die on my feet so you can WATCH ME RISE
  • I took the whole damn ride, with my best friends by my side, the days turned into nights and we held on with all our might
  • what the fuck are you so afraid of? as strong as lions but you never showed your fucking teeth.

Band's Request

Theatre is a christian chaotic hardcore band from South Africa. They bring genre-smashing music to the foreground that is both unique in construction and chaotic in design, which is brought forth by means of a notably destructive, yet emotive performance with live shows that truly defy the norm. They strive to deliver the message of salvation through Christ Jesus, and bring His people back home.

All shall be well (and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well)

All Shall Be Well (...) are an instrumental indie band from Haarlem, the Nederlands. They build on themes, thresh out their melodies and slook for unsuspected harmonies. Their music is highly associative; they liken their music to stories rather than songs. To have total control over their compositions and follow their DIY philosophy, All Shall Be Well (...) set up their own studio. It is in this studio that every song as it's completed is being recorded, uploaded and distributed. The band sees transparency as a great virtue; they release all their music through the Creative Commons, making it accessible for all to experience, share and create endless renditions.

Halo Of Pendor

Halo of pendor, a one man project from Gothenburg, Sweden. His music is a combination of experimental, sensitive and melancholic sounds. This one man is Daniel Öhman, mainly known as a member of post-rock band Ef, and few more bands like When We Fall or Gentle Act Incident (and I think one more, but I don't remember the name of it at the moment). The Halo of Pendor project was born in the Spring of 2006. Having grown tired of spending all of his musical life in rehearsal studies and on the road with various bands, Daniel thought it was high time to make something of his own creativity. Halo of Pendor was created as a sort of sanctuary for his long pent up musical ideas.

Band's Request

Abuse was founded in 2010. Abuse employs chaotic song structures, vivid soundscapes and unapologetic fury to transport the listener into a justified mural of a decaying world. One can expect an imminent drowning within their sea of misanthropic imagery alleged through intimate choral and frantic vocals. Guitars that scream fervently alongside a hailstorm of percussive wrath which leaves the listener constantly unsure of their own equilibrium. These young men are a force of verdant turmoil that adamantly defies categorization.

Circle Takes The Square NEW!

Circle Takes the Square (often abbreviated CTTS) is a band from Savannah, Georgia, USA. The band formed in 2001 as a four-piece and after their first two releases they lost a guitarist but gained another in late 2004. What listeners tend to notice first about the band is the loud screaming of both male and female vocals that often function in a kind of call and response. Skillful, chaotic drumming coupled with intense, highly technical bass/guitar work have served to separate the band from most others in the screamo genre. Highly diverse song structures (from meditative, droning intros to crushing choruses) have also assisted in carving their unique niche.

Jeromes Dream

Jeromes Dream were an influential Connecticut screamo three piece, active from 1997 to 2001. The band had a unique vocal style - singer Jeff Smith opted not to use a microphone while performing live, instead screaming unamplified at the top of his lungs. The band was known for playing very short sets, usually no longer than 10 minutes. According to Smith, they thought 10 minutes was all they needed to get their point across.
