To Unsnare

i’m Suffered and Suffered

on and on
every new day
was a new way for my fears

i accused
i censored
and the line
become a circle for me (circle for me)

—-

the deamons were back at my door
for discussions
my head tried to tell me
that everything
becomes dark
without my past
im living Freeeeeeeeeeeee
now – its – en-ough – for me

—-

the deamons are part of me – i accept
i dont conquered others
i dont decide against you
i decide for myself – i stop to resist

—-

i dont fear the fears anymore
in front of adore (a door)
feeling so brave and take new steps

i see myself – naked and clear
and inside – opened a new door for me
new door for me – new door for me

i see myself – naked an clear
i dont fear the fears anymore

—-

i cut the ties and let go
to finish the suffering
i’m not your victim any—-more
i’m my own navigator, i’m creator

its not against you – its for me
to UNSNARE here an no——-w
i’m not your victim any—–more
i’m my own navigator, i’m creator, i’m creator

 
Lyrics

1. To Unsnare (Short Sample)
ABSENT/MINDED  

Ghosttower

Nights falling

Chaos rising
whispering lights – in the moving sky

no reason to sleep
no reason to wake up
to wake up – and try

—-

my mirror become a window
to the Tower where the Ghost shall be
between a field of bloodred flowers
stand the ghost, like the blackend wounded tree
ghosttower is my destiny

—-

the ghost – fled accross – the endless desert
myself is followed by – his whispering

i’m on my knees – like a prisoner
deep down in dirt – am i a prisoner – a prisoner
of my own?

—-

Ideals changed to obsession
proudness turns to treachery, treachery

—-

my mirror become a window
to the Tower where my Ghost shall be
between a field of bloodred flowers
stand my ghost, like my destiny
ghosttower is where i shall be – i shall be – i shall be
Ghosttower – sets me free

—-

why shoud i enter – the hall of my sins
behind the door – its starts again
behind the door – its starts again

why shoud i enter
GHOSTTOWER

ABSENT/MINDED  

Arktic

the winter seems to never end

and the night, wakes up our souls
going forwards without steps and no control

there is nothing to hear, there is nothing to say
but we break out to——day

—-

the winter seems to never end
and the night, wakes up our souls

—-

there is nothing to hear – there is nothing to say
but we break out and find a wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
BREAK OUT

—-

the winter seems to never ends
and the night, wakes up our souls
going forwards without steps and no control

so follow us into ARKTIC

so follow us into ARKTIC FREEDOM – FREEDOM

 
Lyrics

3. Arktic (Short Sample)
ABSENT/MINDED  

The Lesser Evil

Sometimes i cant feel myself inside

Sometimes i cant find a way out of here
sometimes i have, i have to leave this place
bad an breathless, when exsistence breakes in pieces

i dont wanna – live this life – anymore
anymore

let that thoughts and lies behind
hear my voice – and change your mind

—-

when youre leaving the LESSER EVIL
would you come with me? (would you come with me?)
when you leave – that enemy behind
live your life – by my side
take my hand – we set our sails
to unseen fields – to forget our – fear
to unseen fields – to forget our – fear

we rid ourselfs
we will explore
leave all this shit
and leave that fucking money pit

and leave – all this shit – and leave that fuck-ing money pit, money pit

—-

one day we came back home
years of years has passed away
but we haved learned to change our lifes
we live with the LESSER EVIL by and on our side

 

 
Lyrics

4. The Lesser Evil (Short Sample)
ABSENT/MINDED  

Greed has poisoned men's souls

Greed has poisoned men’s souls,

has barricaded the world with hate,

has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:

machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.

Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind.

We think too much and feel too little:

more than machinery we need humanity;

more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,

the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.

 The hate of men will pass and the power they took from the people

will return to the people and liberty will never perish.

The Great Dictator, Charly Chaplin (1940)

 
Lyrics

5. Greed Has Poisoned Mens Souls (Only with Album)
ABSENT/MINDED  

Reborn

its starts with wine and forlorn survive

sealing down to unite drive
search a path to be alive – to be alive

your fire irrupts my soul
your beaver winds around my shaft
no break no rest, no control
the burst let us sworn
to kill ourselfs to be together

the burst – let us sworn – to kill ourselfs – to be together
REBORN, REBORN

the burst – let us sworn – to kill ourselfs – to be together
REBORN, REBORN

—-

will we ever
will we ever return to life?

will we ever
return to life?

will we ever – return to life?

—-

your fire irrupts my soul
no break no rest, no controls
the burst let us sworn
to kill ourselfs to be together
the burst let us sworn
to kill ourselfs to be together

—-

remember what we have sworn
cant wait to ride that wicked train again
and we start to kill ourselfs – to kill ourselfs to be

to-gether
REBORN
REBORN

 
Lyrics

6. Reborn (Short Sample)
ABSENT/MINDED  

Earthtone

down at earth

imagine the deep
the depths of dust

—-

like little ants, we’ve looked to sky
watch the universe, drifts together
monumental galaxies
clouds of dust, clouds of birth

—-

searchin and seeking, our entire lives
we all die one day
there is no here and no way out
where we are – going through

—-

what if – all this – is not supposed
to be – our lifes?

we are way from here
millon miles, opun the athomshere
it starts with dust
and we will dust again, in aeons of time
hear the first sign
deep inside, you can hear

inside your soul
the EARTHTONE fall

—-

like little ants, we’ve looked to sky
monumental galaxies
where we all born, where we all from and we all die – one day

—-

hear – the EARTHTONE – come
let – let the EARTHTONE – flow
together – with the EARTHTONE – fall

Große Kunst ….. „Trip des Monats“

ROCK HARD Magazin 11/13 #318

Den Höhepunkt ihres Schaffens haben die Franken noch nicht erreicht, man sollte sie im Auge behalten…!

DOOM METAL FRONT ZINE #12

————————–

ABSENT/MINDED scheren sich einen Dreck um Genre-Konventionen, verkaufsförderliche Aspeckte oder Eingängingkeit

LEGACY Magazin 05/13 #086 

————————–

mitreißende, emotionale Passagen, die einem regelmäßig Gänsehaut bescheren

Metal.de

————————–

Die Songs sind teilweise so komplex, dass auch nach mehrmaligen Durchläufen noch Neues entdeckt werden kann. So schafft die Band eine Langzeitwirkung für ihr Album.

Metal 4

———————-

Earthtone hat seinen Reiz, auf seine ganz eigene Art und Weise.

Metalinside Schweiz

———————–

Earthtone braucht eine spezielle Stimmung,…weil es ein spezielles Album ist

Schwarzes Bayern

Consigliatissimo

The Pit of The Damned (Italy)

If you thought Crowbar were heavy then you haven’t heard ABSENT/MINDED

Battlehelm

————————–

ABSENT MINDED schaffen es, ihren eigenen Sound zu finden und liefern reife und abwechslungsreiche Songs ab

Undergrounded

9/10 Points !!!

————————–

Des Kutschers Kunst

10/10 Points !!!

————————–

In my opinion Absent/Minded are a very great sounding hybrid of doom, sludge, and post metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.

Doomed To Darkness Zine

————————–

I mean how many times can you sing depressingly about the end of everything with mid-tempo guitars and a fairly limited sonic palette of distortion and down-tuning without sounding like Amenra or Neurosis? Absent/Minded have answered that question by raiding the tombs of doom… so pour yourself a beer and embrace the riffs.

N0ted.net

————————–

Trotz einer durchschnittlichen Länge von 7 Minuten, ermüden die
die Songs den Zuhörer nicht, was als weiterer Verdienst der Band zu sehen ist.
