about

This is a song about tortured romance. I kind of went overboard with the mythological references on this track. The verses reference the story of Hero and Leander. Leander fell in love with Hero. Every night, he’d swim to her to make love to her but one night, a storm blew his light out and he drowned after being lost at sea. Hero discovered his body and then in turn killed herself. The bridge is about the story of Orpheus and Eurydice: When Eurydice died, Orpheus tried to retrieve her from the underworld on the condition that he not turn back to gaze upon Hell. As he entered the portal, he turned to Eurydice but since she hadn’t yet cross the threshold, she was taken back into Hell. He was later murdered by the followers of Dionysus. LOVE!!!

lyrics

The bittersweet suffering,
The mask of Melpomene invoked!
Conceal your voice, hide the flame.
Tragedy now becomes you.
After the end, become nothing.
Stories of boundless love.
The tower left incomplete,
Stories of endless hate.

Mastication!
Masturbation!
Aberration!
Mastication!

Priestess of Aphrodite!
And the lad of Abydos,
Come across the ocean,
Come away with me.
The wind blows out the candle,
Find ourselves forever lost at sea.
Come away with me.
Come and drown with me...

Masticated!
Defecated!
Supplicated!
Flaggelation!

Orpheus! Where are you my love!?
Dragged to hell by Aristaeus's snake!
Charon's cruel call claiming my soul.
Hades relents, release me!
Begging to Persephone to let us pass,
Eternal is the grasp of Cerberus.
Don't look back, Orpheus!
Murdered by Dionysis...

Eurydice!

about

Age of Endarkenment Harker Heights, Texas

So why the name change? Whore was a moniker that was autobiographical, but it was descriptive of a different me. So what's left for the old Whore? Bitter resentment toward the species. Loathing. A fascination with the way deities come and go throughout history. Now that the Enlightenment is over, a new age has arrive; an Age of Endarkenment. ... more
