about

Wanna know how dreams sound like?

"Eyes of a Monument" consists of ten personal dreams by Gustave G., carefully interpreted and projected in a symphonic metal form. Dreams that can differ from reflective, thoughtfull and emotional to chaotic, dark and apocalyptic.

This album features a heavy epic, majestic and euphoric symphonic sound, accompanied by crushing guitars, fast and powerfull percussions, and expressive vocals.

"Eyes of a Monument" was conceived with the participation of various independent musicians who lent their talent to Gustave G. Musicians like Edwin Lasalle, Alex W, E.C. Stanley and the independent chamber orchestra.

Track Name: Here Comes The Dark...
-------------LYRICS:---------------

The more there is, the less you see.

From the mute, comes the sound.
From the healer, comes the wound.
From the void, comes the spark.
From the light... comes the dark.

In silence, here comes the dark!

A lump of none, the shadow of a white sun
The winds suffocated like stagnant pond.
From the unconscious minds, the dreams of the blind
Who hid their eyes and wept.

The taste of the sound, provided by the deaf
Again and again, death providing the breath
The earless listen the beat of the hearts
And find beauty is going away.

It is really fading away!

Here comes the dark!

Every question is in the reply, a believer who denies
And see the love being fully despised , a deceiver who's being frank.

Stinguish the fire
Stinguish the fire that was burning in the core
A feeling required
A feeling required which your mind will confront.

Track Name: Architecture of Plagues (The Crawling Chaos)
-------------LYRICS:---------------
Such intense pounding in my head, no thoughts to waste.
Falling and falling anormally giving place to rest.
Opening the eyes in a strange beautiful place.
And this hideous pounding comes from outside the head.

The sound, the pounding of chaotic waves.
It's dark, more light! But the sun doesn't shine there.
Surreality of scenes, so many beauty erased.
Destruction I will face...

Escaping the waves...
Escaping the fate...
Monuments at earth's edge...
Collosal architecture of plagues!

The virus plague of illusions within,
And the designer blinded by his own ink.
Consumed by chaos, by a deadly feel.
By designing architectural fears.

Track Name: A Sporadic Memory
-------------LYRICS:---------------
I hear that name in my thoughts
It haunts my dreams so much
Beautiful majestic but it hurts
Thinking about it it burns

My nucleus in a name is inane!
I exist for it, but I don't know who I am!

I remember nothing but that face
A figure of symmetry and grace
It steals the breath but not the pain
It watches my efforts while I fade

My nucleus in a name is inane!
I exist for it, but I don't know who I am!
My nucleus in a name is inane!
I exist for it, but I don't know who I am!

Too many questions I create
The fire inside isn't stinguished yet
I cannot comprehend the flame
Either, I can remember my name
---------------------------------------
Track Name: Inner Rain
-------------LYRICS:---------------
Thunderstorms inside the damn mind.
Carving the anger throughout the dark night
Eyes of wonder, but malice in those entrails.
You've killed me a thousand times, again.

And the heart, just being dead so many times
Just walking outside, more alive than you are.
Fire flowing in the veins like water potent,
You treacherous! I'll go out, and scream to the rain!

...anger in a grievance.
Rain! ...to wish deliverance!
Rain! ...out of my reliance, you treacherous scorned!

Rain! ...anger in a grievance.
Rain! ...to wish deliverance!
Rain! ...and left as a carcass and you know.

You'll dream and I'll suffer the nightmare you'll have
The eyes wide open will help understand
Interested in the opuscule by the image outside
Understand the story and then regret what you saw.

And the rain wipes out memories of you
The insidious nonsense and actions that ensued
A flood inside the mind will last long time
Until you decide to draw your own line.

Rain! ...anger in a grievance.
Rain! ...to wish deliverance!
Rain! ...out of my reliance, you treacherous scorned!
Rain!...anger in a grievance.
Rain!...to wish deliverance!
Rain!...and left as a carcass and you know.

Rain! ...anger in a grievance.
Rain! ...to wish deliverance!
Rain! ...out of my reliance, you treacherous scorned!
Rain!...anger in a grievance.
Rain!...to wish deliverance!
Rain!...and left as a carcass and you know.
Track Name: Surreal Visions of the Blind
-------------LYRICS:---------------

Is like if the sky was falling down,
when I hear the sun cry out loud
while the winds blows a haunting name
I will resist to the winds, I'll wait.

Just tell me, what is my fate,
the blind can dream? will I feel again?
Just kill me, if you just hate,
the way I feel, in bones and flesh.

Hard to know as the sun grows,
look at my eyes and see...
Hard to find as a blue rose.
Wondering now as I breathe.

So hard to find,
so hard to say out loud!
So hard to tell
so hard to understand!
I cannot see, it's unknown to me.
I only perceive, the inner symphony.

Search me and you will find me, you will see im real
So listen and you will hear me, you will hear it's clear.
Hurt me and you will know it, you will know I bleed.
Search me and you will see it, you will see I was real.

Incertitude inside my mind
Solitude in my dry eyes
Solutions within my cold hands
Chains that keep me inside.

Track Name: Nihil Sanctum (The Claws of God)
-------------LYRICS:---------------
Existing to find a salvation all alone.
Like trying to find a shadow in the sun.

Nihil sanctum.
Adveni mors.

Nihil sanctum.
Adveni mors.

Existing to find a salvation all alone.
Designed by the ink who made their eyes burn.

Nihil sanctum.
Adveni mors.

Nihil sanctum.
Adveni mors.

Track Name: Beyond The Looking Glass
-------------LYRICS:---------------

Inner elemental yearning, tired of illusions in vane fighting.
Looking in the mirror and finding, nothing but a thought
Unreasonable attachment to minds, with no reason to seek in the eyes
Unreasonably searching in minds, minds of the unknown

Looking through these mirrors again, watching from the inside,
look them again with your fears, and nothing you will find.

And slowly fading away from an inner world of pain.
And now getting away from that own perception.
Thoughts of purity but now you decided to put on a mask.
A similar to everyone's outside this world.

Looking through the mirrors in here, looking from the inside
Looking again but without fear and something you will find...

This you will find:

My life is gone, through the looking glass I'm gone.
Now I'm damned alone, from inside the mirrors I look!
There's nothing I can do, you left me inside the glass.
I only see you from afar, will you release me and remove your mask?

Hate and love remains, inside this glass cell remains.
I'm just one more dream, a thought in the void, empty space.
