Catchy as Nickelback, but frenzied as Avenged Sevenfold, Heaven Below knows the power of song & musicianship. Combining these elements has already turned heads and got the band several accolades including radio play & indy chart positions. Marisa Brow-Artist Direct

Biography

"Number 1 in sales at tradebit.com, top 10 on Amazon.com New Hard Rock Release Chart, Top 20 on Music Choice." These positions are usually acquired by established household name rock bands, but new comers Heaven Below have already taken home these accolades in the short time this Los Angeles based unit has been together. Fronted by Patrick Kennison on lead vocals & guitar, lead guitarist Jesse "Bawls" Billson, and rounded out by rhythm section John Younger on bass guitar & Bones Elias on drums, the band is considered an upcoming force from the Sunset Strip. It was no surprise when the lead off single "When Daylight Dies" began making waves on active rock stations across the U.S. in the winter of 2010. Syndicated radio shows such as Hard Drive and The Rock 30 are no stranger to the Ben Moody (Evanescence) produced single which has been spun on over 50 stations across the country. Press outlets such as Hard Rock Haven have hailed Heaven Below as "the next Guns N' Roses". The New York Examiner described the live performance as "unbridled balls to the wall ferocity". With the buzz and momentum of the band growing, the opportunity to tour and spread the word beyond radio and internet hype has been inevitable. The band has put 4 successful club tours under it's belt, sharing the stage with heavy weights Buckcherry & Avenged Sevenfold along the way. With the anticipation of a new rock scene looming ahead, Heaven Below are preparing to release a brand new full-length studio album titled "Falling From Zero" in the summer of 2011. If recent activity and praise is any indication of the future, the rise of Heaven Below will be a great one.

Lyrics

When Daylight Dies

Written By: Patrick Kennison

When Daylight Dies
(Kennison)

Still I count the days and nights
Since I survived
This lonely abyss is the place
I've learned to hide
But the memories conflict with
The story I keep in my mind
Then reality comes over me
Like darkness to blind

I can't live without your love
And I can't die
Still I'm standing in the rain
When daylight dies

I've fallen for tomorrow
For centuries I have stayed
I've tried to believe but my eyes
Give me away
It's like you opened up a door
To a world I've never known
A funeral for a friend
Then I awake and I come
Back to life
It kills me over and over again

I can't live without your love
And I can't die
Still I'm standing in the rain
When daylight dies

And so I shield myself from the sun
I crawl away, away from everyone
Maybe it's time I said goodbye
I have suffered for the truth
While others laughed when they lied
I've even contemplated suicide
But I won't leave you here
I'm not afraid to die

But I can't live without your love
And I can't die
Still I'm standing in the rain
When daylight dies

How long is this life
How long is this life.......

The Mirror Never Lies

Written By: P. Kennison, J. Billson

The Mirror Never Lies
(P. Kennison, J. Billson)

In my darkest dreams I see
My refection fading
It's hypnotizing 'til everything you've done
To me has overcome

Still you dig your fingers in
Though the torture never ends
Then you crawl back inside
Heal this body crucified

Broken angel falling farther
With your hands around my throat
You said keep it down now
So no one hears us
You can hide it but the mirror never lies

It's getting hard to believe
This altered sense of reality
Broken hearted and swallowing my pride
It's following me, the last goodbye

And I prayed just to start over
Cannot rewind
But everyday holds the same ending
When daylight dies

Broken angel falling farther
With your hands around my throat
You said keep it down now
So no one hears us
You can hide it with no promise broken
Another path to your depravity
I don't need your sympathy
I don't know if I can live again

I'm getting oh so closer
To the edge of my life
I don't know where this tragedy ends
Until the day that they bury me
Darling angel come and rescue me

Broken angel falling farther
With your hands around my throat
You said keep it down now
So no one hears us
You can hide it with no promise broken
Another path to your depravity
I don't need your sympathy
I don't know if I can live again
When the mirror never lies....
