Liner Notes: 

Ah! Fifty Ninety once gain! Let's start with a bang.

Like I said in my profile, this is not a new song, iot's an old song of mine, but the arrangement is all new, so it's like writing 5 new songs at once hahahaahaha

This is also an exercise in production so, there may be some mistakes, some unintentional things, but.... like I said, I ain't taking myself too seriously and just focusing on learning and growing.

Lyrics: 

Fallen

Intro:Adim +Fdim

Adim Bdim Adim
I've fallen for your arrow

Bdim Adim
That's pierced all through my chest

Bdim Adim Fdim Adim
My heart shoul have stopped but it's beating faster

Bdim Adim
The air now escapes my lungs

Bdim Adim
But soon your sweet breath

Bdim
Will fill them up,

Adim Fdim Adim
as your lips touch my own

Dm Bm Fm Bm Dm
I am in love with you, cruel lover, lustful killer

Bm Fdim Bm Dm
I'm feeling so cold now, but soon I'll have your warmth

Fdim Am Bdim C#dim Am
I am in love with you, my cherub, my grim reaper

Fdim Am
They weep whenever you come

Bdim Am
I weep when you are gone

Fdim Am
My soul belongs to you

Bdim C#dimAm
Carry me up to Heaven

Fdim Am
That is wherever you are

Bdim Am
that is where we are one

Adim Bdim Adim
I'm getting closer now,

Bdim Adim
can almost see the light

BdimAdim Fdim Adim
of your halo blazing on top of me

Adim Bdim Adim
My purgatory was birth
Bdim Adim
My existence was Hell

Bdim Adim Fdim Adim
I've only known peace at the glimpse of your face

Dm Bm Fm
Life flashes through my eyes

Bm Dm
That seek out your eyes

Bm Fm
Your wings are open wide

Bm Dm
Just like my arms

Fdim Am Bdim C#dim Am
I am in love with you, my cherub, my grim reaper

Fdim Am
They weep whenever you come

Bdim Am
I weep when you are gone

Fdim Am
My soul belongs to you

Bdim C#dimAm
Carry me up to Heaven

Fdim Am
That is wherever you are

Bdim Am
that is where we are one
Violin: Dm Em Am
Guitar: Adim + Edim

Dm Fm Dm Am Bdim
Falling for the wings of death so high, payed the ferryman with my heart
(2x])
Dm Fm Dm Adim
Falling from the wings of love so high, hoping for the touch of death

Dm Am Dm Am
God of love, God of death, this one beauty is two-faced

Fdim Am Bdim C#dim Am
I am in love with you, my cherub, my grim reaper

Fdim Am
They weep whenever you come

Bdim Am
I weep when you are gone

Fdim Am
My soul belongs to you

Bdim C#dimAm
Carry me up to Heaven

Fdim Am
That is wherever you are

Bdim Am
that is where we are one

End: Adim + Fdim

Cool! I didn't see the Operatic tag so I was like "Oooh interesting" when the vocals came in, a nice surprise! Sounds good and fits the song very well. The instrumental sounds fun, I like the little keyboard bits that come in here and there. The bit that comes in at 2:30 is a really good change up!

I don’t think I’ve ever heard operatic goth metal, but this was brilliant. That line, “my Cherub, my grim reaper”, so cool. The lyrics are dark and your voice is haunting. Great work.

Powerful, epic, gothic & wonderful. The music is intense and your voice is angelic. I can picture this as a sort of the penultimate song in a Faust-like Rock-Opera. There's a lot of potential here. Now I gotta go listen to your other track Smile

See You In The Shadows…

Alexandre, I think you might have invented a new musical genre here because I have never heard anything like this before. There's opera, and metal, and EDM, and industrial all in the mix, and I reckon it works fine. Sure, it's a little rough around the edges, but my goodness me, this knows where it's going and with the amount of momentum it has, nothing is going to get in its way. The smooth string section break at 2:30 stops things getting too crazy; I really liked it.

(Good to see you back here again, too!)

I like this new, edgier Pavarotti.

On a more serious note,this is the sort of mixed marriage of genres that could win new fans from either side. I enjoyed the order and the chaos in equal amounts, in equal time.

There's that goth opera I remember from last year. I'm digging the long stretch of diminished chords. I like the percussive orchestral string accents too. And then the melodic section in the middle is a nice contrast.

Wow, yeah, you really have a unique and instantly recognizable style going on here.
It totally suits your voice.
Macabre lyrics really suit the epic heavy metal orchestral approach.
I'm thinking you might wanna bring the vox forward in the mix to really show them off, tho.
I'm really loving your work, dude.

This is such a jolt from what I usually listen to (even on here), I like it! This is the kind of thing I need to listen to when I feel like I'm getting in a funk and need to be more creative.

What a minor and diminished chord modal metal mashup!

This is a wild one. I totally want to hear it played live with pounding drums and heavy bass, the drummer totally beating the shit out of his kit. Anyway, I like it a lot...and I like it more and more as it advances. The gentle interlude is a nice touch. I really like the lyric, too, though I would have to give more thought to "what it means," if anything. Cool stuff here!

You always bring giant waves of emotion and drama with your songs, with gusto, and this one is no different. That B section at 2:29 is the antithesis to the exquisite power and calamity of the main section. It shows your versatility as a composer but also how deliberate your writing is, giving the listener (and probably yourself as a vocalist) a moment of reprieve before diving back into the fire. Seeing this performed would almost strike the audience like foot soldiers heading into battle. I love the whole song but as usual, I appreciate the finale in particular.

Epic is a good word for this. Full on with no breaks until that small musical interlude which was nice. I felt the intensity. Big passion. Would love to see images with it.

Love the combination of genres here (metal, opera, electonica). It all meshes together seamlessly and what appears to be effortlessly. But I suspect that there was a lot of effort involved !
More please Smile

Dramatic piece: love the layers you added to it. You have a good voice

Majestic sounds! Wow.

"My heart shoul have stopped but it's beating faster" Oh COOL! I love that line. Such a twist.

Absolutely awesome operatic stylings with the voice. I bow to you.

Wow ... this is like a maelstrom of dramatic sounds ... vocals incredible, as always, and that metallic riffage rules! Love the little keyboard stabs and the string break in the middle. Crushing!

Joanne Gabriel's picture

Yay! I finally made it to hear what you've been cooking! Smile
Bang! There's a juggernaut feel with the fast pace and the relentless unfolding of the vocals. The bridge with the strings is wonderful, it's like coming out of deep water to breathe before diving again. The recipe for this piece is improbable and brilliant. Genres entangle to give birth to something unique and uncategorisable.
As for the lyrics, they are (as always) powerful and elegant at the same time. What a love song, the strength of your words is incredible, the imagery bloody poetic while being super DARK. Loving the atmosphere you created here.
Sounds like you've beeing doing this all your life. Keep going.

So much great attitude in this, starts so strong and the crunchy guitars drive home the feel,

I can imagine some Scroobius Pip spoken word over this, has a good intergenre presence, and works as an operatic sequence with the guitar and bass making a cool solid backing track with the stabbing of the strings coming into to a violent course. Unsettling and I like it!!
