For everybody who cares, here's a new song from me to you. Love, Trent.

UserPostedImage
TITLE: Orion
ARTIST: Shadowmachine
GENRE: Industrial, Darkwave, EBM
LABEL: Liberation/Nomad Records

BACKGROUND/RECORDING:
"I grew up in Lake Orion," says bandleader Trent D'Amour. "My father sold heroin and my mom was a nurse. Naturally, I took after my father and by the time he buggered off when I was fourteen or so, I'd already tried heroin. The song is basically about my experiences during that time, and it's pretty dark lyrically. I think I tried to make the music kind of poppy and catchy just to balance that out. It's got a really cool 80's synth-pop feel to it."

The song begins with a low, grimy sounding synth arpeggio being accented by tinkling piano notes. After a few seconds of this, a drum machine comes in, backing the synth with a tinny, industrial beat. A siren sounding synth lead is played, and the vocals begin.

you pulled me off the bathroom floor
we closed our eyes, we closed the door
listening to floyd, dark side of the moon
thinking about the dark side of the spoon
you watched my eyes turn white and dead
you watched my arm start dripping red
you watched me crawl just at your feet
you watched me while i tried to plead


Trent spits out the lyrics to the pre-chorus and chorus spitefully, a hint of reverb on his voice, while the opening synth hook is repeated.

i love my manufactured feel
but it's the only thing i feel
i hate my manufactured feel
and it's the only thing i feel

i did it again
i did it again
i did it again and again and again


The verse part comes back, Trent's vocals becoming calmer, the driving beat backing up his words,

far below, the wages of sin
far below, the sorry state i'm in
far below, like nobody knows
far below is the place i'll go


The chorus part returns, Trent's voice sounding even more aggressive as the synth hook blares in the background

i love my manufactured feel
but it's the only thing i feel
i hate my manufactured feel
and it's the only thing i feel

i did it again
i did it again
i did it again and again and again


The synth arpeggio and drum machine have an almost breakdown-like part, with more layered percussive synth accents being played, before the verse part returns, Trent's voice sounding pained and angry, all but screaming the last line,

picked me off the kitchen floor
you wouldn't take my shit no more
you kicked me out, left for dead
no more would I fuck with your head
that bleeding vein, that bleeding vein
it got me in trouble again and again


The pounding beat comes back as the chorus repeats itself until the song slowly fades out, leaving a feeling of unresolved issues,

i love my manufactured feel
but it's the only thing i feel
i hate my manufactured feel
and it's the only thing i feel

i did it again
i did it again
i did it again and again and again
i did it again
i did it again
i did it again and again and again and again...

ooc: the rest of her friends like one direction and nikki minage (spelled wrong,but you know who i'm talking about). i'd sit through 10 black veil brides concerts before i'd do one direction one. she's also into my stuff ,like the meteors operation ivy and whatnot. there is hope for her. she also digs children of bodom. so she does know real metal when she hears it.

OOC: I'll admit it: I love Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj. I'm nineteen. Come at me, bro. So most of the stuff that she listens to, I'm pretty chill with. The boy bands, though... No... There's a reason why those stopped being cool in the 90's.

Trent: Hopefully you'll be able to leave Shadowmachine with your fingers intact. Your soul, however, is bound to be damaged somehow.
