Biography

It all started with an idea, a vision, and a common goal. Chino and Jim (the two guitarists) met in Charlotte, NC and started to create the sound known as Annabell Leigh. Chino, from Houston, TX, had started the writing process prior to meeting Jim. Chino played in bands in the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area and having grown tired of musicians that just weren’t willing to be dedicated to a band, he moved to Charlotte hoping to find something different.
Jim was coming from a very similar situation, relocating to Charlotte from the New England area. When Jim and Chino met and started playing, the two quickly realized that they had the same goals and visions and things began to move forward quite rapidly. After writing music throughout the winter months and searching endlessly for a drummer out of the blue came Hugo, from Moorseville, NC.
He had had a very similar past as well, having been in many bands that just couldn’t seem to hold things together. Along with Hugo came one of his long-time friends and former band-mate Krom who filled the bass guitar spot. The final piece of the band was still missing but after some searching, Sid, originally from Maryland, came through and took the vocalist spot in the band.
While collaborating on writing the best music they could, Annabell Leigh started to evolve into something beyond everyone’s expectations. With an abundance of talent and experience from every corner of the band, the ideas and creations that were at hand were challenging and intriguing to everyone. There seemed to be a constant push toward progression and quality sound that became clearer with each new song and idea brought to the writing table.
The band took the name "Annabell Leigh" from Edgar Allen Poe's love for his mistress. Everyone in the band shares the passion and love for music that reaches even beyond this world. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, they create an original sound and powerful lyrics that tell a story as well as an experience that people can relate to.
Nationals that Annabell Leigh has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with ; Devil Driver, Dying Fetus, 3 Inches of Blood, Job For A Cowboy, The Faceless

Lyrics

Eternal Whispers

Written By: Chino Aguayo

verse - This fire it burns, it pulls me down. Look in the madness and that's where I'm found. No more madness, Ive carried the burden for way too long.

pre- chorus - Like a killer inside, it rips the world apart. Shattered pieces of serenity blown away by the whispers

chorus - In the end it swallows you whole, like a knife it cuts too deep

verse - Fueled by the will to survive, I carry this heavy smite. At the end of the day, vanity will devour. No more contest Ive carried the burden for way too long.

pre- chorus - Like a killer inside, it rips the world apart. Shattered pieces of serenity blown away by the whispers

chorus - In the end it swallows you whole, like a knife it cutts too deep.

outro - Catch me, before I, go insane, from the madness. Eternal whispers, eternal whispers, gone insane from the game I cant help who I am.

Through Misery

Written By: Chino Aguayo

verse- I stared through the eyes of mercy and I found myself wishing. I leaned my head upon any shoulder that told me everything would be okay. I was torn apart by the idle love you gave me, until the makers hands came and saved me.

Chorus: How can I mold into something, How can I keep my head up with lies. I'm taking the shape of another's child, through misery and suffering I reply (don't deny)

pre- verse: Can't stop the weight of the world, from crushing my dreams into nothing. Just vivid dreams of me, subliminal lies

Verse 2: Every letter is a memory, a piece of your heart. These lines are sketched forever, I'm sorry for all the pain I've put you through

Chorus: How can I mold into something, how can I keep my head up with lies. I'm taking the shape of another's child, through misery and suffering I reply, (don't deny)
pre- verse: Can't stop the weight of the world, from crushing my dreams into nothing. Just vivid dreams of me, subliminal lies

Outro: The more I read on, the more I feel your pain. Even now, your letters they make me smile. I never ment to hurt you, I've ignored all the signs, and watched you slip away, into misery

As It Goes

Written By: Chino Aguayo/Mike Frazier

verse- Take it from me, cause its the last time that I fold and resurrect my past. I gave it all to you, suffer for me, because Ive suffered for you. I fell hard, I still feel it now like a demon inside feeding on my doubt. I question who I am, memories preventing me to just let me be.

chorus- You lifted me high just to watch me fall. I can still hear the angels call. Cause as it goes right now, its killing me. Ive tried to share this pain, but it sickens me,

verse- Now you continue to bludgeon with the words, every night and every god damn day. I wake up every night, wondering if your dead or in someone else's bed. Eleven seventeen will always haunt me. I figured you out from the start, too stupid to turn away, now watch me fall apart.

chorus- You lifted me high just to watch me fall, I can still hear the angels call. Cause as it goes right now, its killing me, Ive tried to share this pain but it sickens me.

bridge- Cant you see the martyr in me, it ripping out my insides is so frustrating. It didn't take to long to rip you apart, but as it goes, I stand alone, and it sickens me the martyr in me.

verse- Ill wait for you, your turning away, Ill wait for you and Ill bring down these walls. Ill wait for you, your turning away, Ill wait for you and Ill bring down these walls.

My Shadow

Written By: Krom

(((VERSE 1)))
Born forsaken
Cast into the flames
No one sees me
A face without a name
In the shadows
And unseen by naked eyes
I stand silent just to wait alone to die

Chorus: The darkness hides, so no one can see my face, trapped inside, i vanished without a trace.
(the darkness hides!! so no one can see my face, trapped inside, i vanished without a trace)

(((VERSE 2)))
From this torment,
I cannot be saved
Chained in shackles that
Drag me to my grave
So in the shadows
And unseen by naked eyes
I stand silent just to wait alone to die

Chorus: The darkness hides, so no one can see my face, trapped inside, i vanished without a trace.
(the darkness hides!! so no one can see my face, trapped inside, i vanished without a trace)

SO I FALL (DEEPER INSIDE MYSELF)
CANT ESCAPE (FROM MY OWN VERSION OF HELL)

Becoming

Written By: Chad Honeycutt

verse -
For the last time
you are the death of me
holding me back from my feeling
wrong wrong , so wrong
over and over again it the same thing
manipulation is all that your about,
your pulling strings from the inside out
and that's wrong wrong
so wrong
over and over again it the same thing

Chorus:
no, not again
(so demanding)
no not again
(so sick and twisted)
no not again
(so demanding)
no not again
(so sick and twisted)

Verse -
I give and you take
you give nothing back
now that's the very last time that you do that
there's no way
no other way
over and over again its the same thing
you should hear yourself so condescending
pretending everything is okay
and I'm sick of this, so sick of this
repeating repeating I'm going insane

Chorus:
no, not again
(so demanding)
no not again
(so sick and twisted)
no not again
(so demanding)
no not again
(so sick and twisted)

Every time i try, you drag me down again, constantly pushing and shoving me.
in this hell i refuse to lie again, becoming who i am, becomes my strength.
