Sonny92 Brilliant album of prog-influenced doom from Italian band Midryasi. Memorable songs infused with that singular quirkiness that italian doom is well-known for. The overall feeling engendered by the album is more upbeat and positive than is usual in the doom genre, it even feels, at times, positively humourous. If you fancy a bit of prog / doom genre-bending then give it a try. Favorite track: Diagonal.

Track Name: The Counterflow
I hear a voice that resounds deep into my grave into a liquid black beyond fragments of glass, alone.
Exiled in a corner of heart, it scratches on my walls!

Feeling the demons of lust attempting my head. Wonderful hounds of temptation have fixed in my brain.
Upstairs the corpse of my soul is lying in my bed.

The blind man’s bleeding his song in the night: we're dying by the sin of our hand!

It's time to rise up from the ObSexed (ObSexed & ObSin).
It's time to rise out of the obscene
(I must get out of the ObSexed & ObSin).
It's time to start the CounterFlow
(I must get out of the grave).
Beyond liquid black I'm in pain (OBSEXED & OBSIN)!

Lost in the vice of illusion I've sold my TV,
searching for the tune of my mind-radio: the thrill of it all.

Sylicon curves of desire have fixed in my heart but I wanna rise from the ObSexed & ObSin: society's burden of shit, ten thousand tons of white lies!!!
Track Name: Diagonal
Diagonal mother, like the flash of a blade right outside your door.
Diagonal lovers, two fellows are speaking just under the street-lamp.

Diagonal rider, down by mirroring walls his shape of red radiates.
Diagonal stream of blood from a diagonal heart comes by my right hand.

Just wanna taste the taste and catch your embrace, ‘cause I need, I don’t want to leave this magical place.
I’ve been so straight and wrong again for so long and I know it, yeah!

Diagonal gaiting: the dimension aside in the corner of my eyes.
Diagonal splitting: now you can understand!
My soul’s both here & there!!

Just wanna end this chase and live my own way ‘cause I need, I don’t want to leave this magical place.
I’ve been so wrong and straight again for so long and you know it, yeah!
Track Name: Behind my Ice
You ask why shadows on my face
In dark I’ve left my deeds away
And still I hang my fire-pictures on the walls
Nothing remains of me
Nothing remains of it all!

My heart is beating sex feet outside my ice
I have buried it in my own way
just time after time...
You say I… should, because I… could… and so I would step into this life I join my hands in an act of praying: an angels’ world waits crystalized and… glistering... (with)

With the feelings of love I’ve trapped behind my ice. And the sheet has now grown so thick, so hard & cold! So gimme a sun and moon, a way that I can get through, demons I’ve planted under my Ice!

The debtor’s finally dead & gone
Another seed that has not bloomed
Another row on the river of “come & go”
Will the flower ever grow on my scars?

Now it seems like centuries I swim from pain to sorrow. As I’m going to spend my lies just
wasting my tomorrow. You say we should, ‘cause we all could and so we all would step into this life I join my hands in an act of praying: an angels’ world waits crystalized and…
glistering... (with)
Track Name: Back in the Maze
Hey!!
D’ya really wanna come back here in the maze?
D’ya wanna enter all the storm & the haze? You’re back in the maze!!

Hey!!
D’ya really wanna walk again in the daze??
And loose direction with your head in the craze??
Love turns to pain...

HAZE-DAZE!
Back in the CRAZE!
Back in the HAZE-DAZE-CRAZE!
Back in the MAZE!
Back in the MAZE, DAZE, HAZE, CRAZE! BACK IN THE MAZE!

Hey!!
D’ya really go back there to the maze??
Can’t you remember life is hard in the daze?? Love turns to pain...

Hey!!
The voices from the future wish for you grace!
There’s nothing gained casting your life a haze!

Back in the Maze...
Track Name: Black, Blue & Violet
These steps I walk are swadled with the night,
I nightmade shoes I walk, I ride and I stride.
With the clouds over my shoulders and my head over the clouds (I just go where I float)
my feet skiming the surface of this smoky and hazy and unmaterial ground.

And all your pretty face and your tiger-like eyes... I don't need you.
And still I'm wanderin’ how and still I'm wandering about... yeah I need you...
GET TOGETHER!

I'm following the sound of the rattle of the snake;
I'm hypnotized by the black and the blue and the violet trails.
Exactly (if you want to know) 20.000 times I've been a demon of fire,
an angel tasting the heavenly berries from androginous leaves.

And I can't understand what I miss in the end… but I need you again!
And still I'm wandering how, and still I'm wandering… but I don't wanna need you!

GET TOGETHER!
TELL ME I AIN'T OVER!
GET UPON MY KNEES AND I'LL FEEL CLOSER!
OPEN WIDE MY DOORS AND HEAL MY FEVER ONCE FOREVER!

I'd like so much to adorne the crown of orgasm with the jewels of my souls,
the tree has told me that different trunks can grow from one root...

And all your pretty face & your tiger-like eyes... I don't need you.
And still I'm wanderin’ how and still I'm wandering about... yeah I need you.

GET TOGETHER!
TELL ME I AIN'T OVER!
GET UPON MY KNEES AND I'LL FEEL CLOSER!
OPEN WIDE MY DOORS AND HEAL MY FEVER ONCE FOREVER!
Track Name: The Nuclear Dog
We earned a walk through the fields of
desperation.
We earned a walk through the fields of un-hope.
Black heavy velvet cloath of blindness,
A right-side long black dangling tongue!

We earned the very sight of black fire,
we earned the senseless pain just for pain;
a toll to gleam like crystal tigers,
a temple to mourn what’s been Lost!
The Nuclear Grey Dog!

We crushed our idols now broken in the (grey) Dust.
We crushed our sanctuaries now broken in the (grey) sand.
A curse through the collonades of grace
(even) the left wing of angels was torn uuuuuuhhhhhhh!!!

By the winds of the trembles of lust,
inside the huge and blind shutted iron gates;
the man was turned into a dog
to roam alone through all tones of grey.

Delivered from the realms of confusion
the dog was thrown in the world;
a spark of light in the grey desert to find (the hard role!)
A sight could be the dawn at the daaaaaaaaawn!
Like a nucler dog - yeah baby like a nuclear dog!
Track Name: Hole of the Saturday Night
Two boys and a girl meet in their
bedroom of youth,
they wanna fill the hole of the saturday Night.
No volume loud, no lights or crowds,
they’ll trip the hole of the night!

The elder and white-haired guy starts his own word:
“The hole is open 2 meters above:
...see me running through blue neon city lights, the idle of terror is the thrill down my spine!”

Like a red-haired spring the girl lies down on the bed:
“The hole is opened 2 meters above our heads: their whispers I hear, their hands I feel!

They’re gonna drag me to light!

The last one, the child-headed, starts his own wise words:
“I see the light you left in the hole:
what we got to learn is just to enjoy our lives… there’s nothing to win, it’s not a matter of time!”
