Raymond André III Gorgeous, anthemic, dark cinematic progressions. Windswept wastelands await the fall of Icarus to a chorus of Exterminating Angels.

In particular, ‘In My Memories, Old’ is a stunningly beautiful octave-driven track that is destined for great things, and truly the highlight of the album. The guitar arranging, in particular, is hypnotic and compelling. The lyrics evoke the limitless abyss between each of our isolated souls, making contact and redemption always out of reach. Regret and triump Favorite track: In My Memories, Old.

about

Before ‘Looking for Semblance’, Death Comes Crawling was a different entity. Being much more goth rock/post punk sounding, these songs have been lying dormant for 4-5 years. Despite being a bit rough-around-the-edges, I have decided to release them as a 5 track EP called ‘In My Memories, Old’. This release bridges a gap between Midnight Odyssey and Death Comes Crawling, like a window into the past. This isn’t the direction that the project is heading, but I still consider these songs as the birthplace for Death Comes Crawling.

Track Name: Wither and Die
My tears are frozen
There are none left to cry
My eyes are hiding
In shards of ice
My heart is frozen
It shall be loved no more
And in coldness I will
Wither and Die
Track Name: In My Memories, Old
In the calling of an old name
Invoke the flames of a sun
Whose fires burn a deathly shade
But remains seen by none

Fiery talons, Burning embers of hate
Tear the fabric of a wretched soul away
Bearing naked, the inner spirit untamed
The walls of comfort, the solid grounds give way

Though the flames tell of memories
Stories made, forever told
In my memories, so very faint
They feel helpless and old

Fiery talons, Burning embers of hate
Tear the fabric of a wretched soul away
Bearing naked, the inner spirit untamed
The walls of comfort, the solid grounds give way

But through the ebb and flow
Of eternity your words haunt me

“In the vast realm between you and me
Through time you hear me cry”

But through the ebb and flow
Of eternity your words haunt me

“In the vast realm between you and me
The flames, they don’t comfort me
They lie, when the words you speak
Incomplete…”

The truths are hard to know
Still I need to bring your flames to me

“In my memories, old,
The fires burn so bright
They don’t grow cold”

The truths are hard to know
Still I need to bring your flames to me

In my memories, old,
The fires burn so bright, they grow
It powers over me and consumes
All that’s left of me and you.
Track Name: These Thoughts Today
Blowing a last kiss to my home, my world
I have everything to fear and lose
Knowing that there’s not much for me to gain
Taking the first step in blindness alone

I don’t need these thoughts today
I will make this voice obey
I know everything will crumble
I know now I cannot stay

Setting off onto an unknown road
Will my footsteps ever be traced again
Will I walk into a darkened dead end
Stranded and forever lost to all them.

I don’t need these thoughts today
I will make this voice obey
I know everything will crumble
I know now I cannot stray
Track Name: Shadows Standing
Candles burning in the hall
They cannot guide my eyes at all
For every breath, I feel the noose ..
The night is coming far too soon
Sudden movement on the walls
The shadows dancing where I fall
And the flames, have burnt away
But the shadows are here to stay

If I could turn the page
And float away
I could make it through the night
To see another day
If I should turn around
What would I see
I am not quite the man
I thought I’d be

Shadows standing strong and tall
I have no will to stand at all
They hover over menacing
Grim and speechless, chastening
And I feel, the chains of time
Quickly tightened, as they bind
I am destined here to stay
But the shadows fly away
Track Name: Don't Be So Brave
Hiding on the floor, in the corner
Hands on face
I have heard you from outside
I am here
will you look me in the eye

Don’t be so brave
You let it hurt so much
I feel your pain
You won’t complain
Don’t be so brave
You want it gone so bad
I want to stay

Lying in your bed in darkness
hands in hair
I can’t hear you from outside
When I call your name, you stay in silence

On the floor, but a shadow
You stare so cold
Your skin, so frail
Your mind is elsewhere

Hiding on the floor, in the corner, alone
I am here, you are not
You are elsewhere
