Arsis post new song and lyrics


Arsis (2009) Virginia based melodic technical deathsters ARSIS have posted the new song "Beyond Forlorn" on their MySpace page. The track comes from their upcoming album, Starve For The Devil, due out in North America on February 9th, 2010.

Guitarist / songwriter / lead singer James Malone recently went public with his struggle with anorexia nervosa, one of the most common eating disorders that affects less than 1% of the general population. 10% of the people who suffer from the disorder are male.

Malone had this to say about the lyrical content of the song: "I am of the belief that one can be most convincing when they write/create from personal experience. 'Beyond Forlorn' is probably one of my favorite tracks from Starve For the Devil because it is so deeply personal for me. I really feel that I tried to put all of my being into this one song. Enjoy."


'Beyond Forlorn' lyrics are as follows:

BEYOND FORLORN
Music and Lyrics: James Malone
Lead Theme: James Malone

The dreams of others
wither by the light of day
when the truth's uncovered
you will find me wasting away


A dark curse upon me
flesh bound to the whipping post
hunted and haunted
stalked by nostalgia the memory of a ghost


Beyond forlorn, the answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn, I am so full on emptiness

In the heart of torture
came the vulture's melody
to grant my wishes
a pardon from this malady

A drop of poison
just a drop to call the armies off
a chance for release
for release is all I ever want

Beyond forlorn, the answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn, I am so full on emptiness

The greed that blankets passion
keeps all of our grief in fashion
and as the fervor dies
I damn my soul to open up the sky

Lead Theme: James

Solo: James
Solo: Nick

From this falling temple
draped in scarlet shrouds
the starving statue
looks on and speaks aloud

Locked inside the famine chamber
I am the Prince of Emaciation
under the spell of the coldest splendor
grant me my wish, release the poison

A dark curse upon me
flesh bound to the whipping post
a drop of poison
just a drop to call the armies off

Beyond forlorn
the answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn
I am so full on emptiness
The greed that blankets passion
keeps all of our grief in fashion
Beyond forlorn, stalked by nostalgia
my memories are your ghost


Music for Starve For The Devil was recorded with producer Zeuss (Municipal Waste, Agnostic Front, Hatebreed) at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts.

ARSIS will be touring North America on the "Tyrants Of Evil" tour with ARCH ENEMY, EXODUS, and Mutiny Within beginning January 20th, 2010. Exclusive pre-sale tickets for the tour are available here.
