Dionysos Nyktelios First full lenght album by the band, preceded by the two excellent EP's 'Fault Line' and 'Reflections'. In line with their now characteristic sound and influences, October Burns Black deliver a great collection of tracks whose spell is impossible to resist.

Classy and classic gothic rock at it's best. Favorite track: Tightrope.

BlackVelvetAudio.com Quite simply the best Gothic Rock Record this side of 1980 something. Dark & gloomy. Powerful, evocative and Incendiary. A modern record with old skool heart, that has something to say. "Regress" is an anthem for the times we live in. Oh & you can dance your liile black hearts out to it too. Favorite track: Regress.

Twisting into form Truth inversion, progeny of lies Preaching to the deaf, dumb and the blind Spreading fear, suspicions rising high Subvert us forever watch us die Oh watch us, oh watch us divide and conquer us Forcing us to regress To a state of lethargy Reverting to a time of prejudice and greed The voice of reason silenced and slain Oh watch us, oh watch us divide and conquer us The voice of reason silenced and slain Oh watch us, oh watch us divide and conquer us These men of straw will lead us gladly to our end Pollute the Earth with hate, condemn us to our graves Forever to regret decisions made in haste Life has no meaning watch it burn and laid to waste The voice of reason silenced and slain Oh watch us, oh watch us divide and conquer us

Black Veil 04:19
I hear you... My heart pounds... I fall down dead to the ground I thought this nightmare was all over At peace in mind, body and soul You had other ideas, return now to remind me Never to leave myself defenceless...from you Black heart girl, hate filled girl Cruel nails they tear at my flesh Eyes mock me, words scorn me Smiling behind your black veil This time there will be no returning My death elixir on her lips I take my final weary breath Her shadow rising Black heart girl, hate filled girl Cruel nails they tear at my flesh Eyes mock me, words scorn me Smiling behind your black veil Black veil, black veil, black veil, black veil Black heart girl, hate filled girl Cruel nails they tear at my flesh Eyes mock me, words scorn me Smiling behind your black veil Haunting my soul forever Haunting my heart Black heart girl, hate filled girl Cruel nails they tear at my flesh Eyes mock me, words scorn me Smiling behind your black veil

Tightrope 04:52
I look around me and see panic in their eyes This life will suck you up then leave you out to die Breathe the uncertainty you fear it to the end Heart racing faster now you're hanging on the edge Come walk, then dance the tightrope with me The repercussions flow, they haunt you every night You dream catastrophe convinced this is the end One fatal slip will leave you falling to the ground No mercy in this world for those who cannot fight Come walk, then dance the tightrope with me We are such fragile fools Caught in the chaos Time the commodity None of us have, we drown Come walk, then dance the tightrope with me I look around me and see panic in their eyes This life will suck you up then leave you out to die Breathe the uncertainty you fear it to the end Heart racing faster now you've reached the edge Come walk, then dance the tightrope with me

Regress 03:34
Welcome crusader... The 21st century voice for the dumb Spout your vicious lies Brain, disengage Vacancy upstairs Give you a platform, entertain us Fool... Tell me, are you lonely? Liar, cheat, fabricator Hide behind a screen then play the victim Bigot, wretch, aberration Your tired transparency Loser, coward, miserable fool Oxygen is wasted on people like you Empty, useless, cretinous tool You're a waste of time and space and You're a fucking liar! And that is being kind... You're so much worse and so much more... Fool... Tell me, is it lonely? Up there in your ivory tower And that is being kind... You're so much worse and so much more... Fool... Brain, disengage Vacancy upstairs Give you a platform, racist liar Fool... Tell me, are you lonely? Liar, cheat, fabricator Hide behind a screen then play the victim Bigot, wretch, aberration Your tired transparency Loser, coward, miserable fool Oxygen is wasted on people like you Empty, useless, cretinous tool You're a waste of time and space and You're a fucking liar! Testify to me!

Fickle 05:57
Come hold my hand Then let it fall Promise to let me down Tell me you care Mouth your deceptions Deliver pain Your fickle, twisted, cruel intentions Kill the faith I have in me Cultivate purity Fabricate honesty Smooth words that blind my eyes Cast me to a lonely shore Come dig my grave Deliver pain Your fickle, twisted, cruel intentions Kill the faith I have in me ...and only one thing is for certain Tear my heart out Leave me screaming One track minded Predetermined Paranoia Voices echo Mocking laughter Only darkness Only darkness, in your eyes Only darkness, on your mind ...and only one thing is for certain

I am around you in the shadows Sit by your bedside every night The one you fear the most I play with your emotions Toy with your hopes and dreams You flounder in the darkness And all who pass here, come to me A whisper in your ear Then I move in behind you I have you dancing on a string Just give yourself to me, resistance cannot save you I am the all-consuming presence And all who pass here, come to me And no returning! Life! Death! Life! Fall to your feet no escape Life! Death! Crawl on your knees no escape And in the end there are no answers Your questions met with mocking silence Only my open arms to hold you in the darkness All follow me to silent sleep And all who pass here, come to me And no returning! Life! Death! Life! Fall to your feet no escape Life! Death! Life! Crawl on your knees no escape

Blind Faith 03:21
Life in denial, blind faith! Watch them fall and listen to a liar Eyes wide open innocent unscarred Close their minds, harden their hearts Bend them to your will Lead them down the golden path to nowhere As madness reigns They're blinded by faith Exalt their master Faultless by rule None dare to answer Blinded by faith Exalt their master Faultless by rule None dare to answer Blind faith Propaganda funnelled through a censor Preaching lies from altars stained with blood Manipulation with a smile, deviate and die Obedience maintained, harness control As madness reigns They're blinded by faith Exalt their master Faultless by rule None dare to answer Blinded by faith Exalt their master Faultless by rule None dare to answer Blind faith

Condemned 04:03
Follow, we follow, follow, we follow We fall... Lead the blind on a path to nowhere Take them by the hand Give them hope by divide and conquer Subjugate and rule Tyranny Misery Apathy the tool Ignorance, violence Watch the Earth aflame Consumed, consumed, consumed... Into darkness Guide the helpless Condemned lives Your misrule Powertrip that inflates your ego Lack of empathy View their lives with disdain and contempt Psychopathic creed Tyranny Misery Apathy the tool Ignorance, violence Watch the Earth aflame Consumed, consumed, consumed... Into darkness Guide the helpless Condemned lives Your misrule On borrowed time, we crawl through life You lead the way, our messiah Tyranny Misery Apathy the tool Ignorance, violence Watch the Earth aflame Consumed, consumed, consumed... Into darkness Guide the helpless Condemned lives Your misrule

I walked a lonely road, an empty soul inside Searching for inner peace, so restless and deprived You offered up your heart, an open invitation I entered eagerly and broke your heart in two This is the cross I bear Finding satisfaction, finding despair Struggle with my conscience, callously forsake and all I never wanted, all I never wanted was you Never to find a place where my heart can find rest Questions and answers, excuses never reasons I promise you the world, then take your heart for granted Look to a future that doesn't include you This is the cross i bear Finding satisfaction, finding despair Struggle with my conscience, callously forsake and all I never wanted, all I never wanted was you Searching...finding...wanting...nothing This is the cross I bear Finding satisfaction, finding despair Struggle with my conscience, callously forsake and all I never wanted, all I never wanted was you

Somewhere in time Lost in a void I lost my mind Madness defined...madness defined Two worlds collide, and time stands still From one burning ember grew a flame One look could freeze my heart This madness kills me Obsessions they drive Both of our hearts The closer to danger, the better it feels One look could freeze my heart This madness kills me Mistake your touch for love Passions arise, hearts racing fast Beautiful nightmare, never to last One look could freeze my heart This madness kills me Mistake your touch for love Leave me to die all over again All over again One look could freeze my heart This madness kills me Mistake your touch for love Leave me to die all over again One love, one hate, one kiss We're doomed to our fate One love, one hate, one kiss We're doomed to our fate One love...one hate...one love... One love...one hate Rise desire like fire, burning a pyre Desire like fire, burning a pyre Desire the fire that burns through my heart Desire the fire that burns deep inside As Two Worlds Collide
