Biography

THE ALMIGHTY TERRIBLES are a unique and intensifying, 3 piece post-apocalyptic progressive rock band that pushes the boundaries through an array of compelling original songs dynamic sounds. Based out of Frenchtown, NJ. and The Lehigh Valley, PA., Front man Dave Cahill‘s blazing guitar work combined with his rhythmic and socially conscience lyrics, produce a passionate dimension of sound. Alongside the creative and concussive grooves of drummer, Ryan Decker, and the solid and melodic bass attack of Nathan Powell, THE ALMIGHTY TERRIBLES, have launched an unforgettable and driving original sound.

Their relentless schedule of recording and performing has resulted in the release of three albums (“FASCISTS TO ASHES“, “HOPE-NOSIS” & “WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES“), numerous tours and professional music videos, and contributions of original music to multiple film soundtracks. THE ALMIGHTY TERRIBLES have also already begun work on their fourth original studio album, to be released in 2013.

Through their explosive live performances the band has been breaking ground in the local spotlight, gaining critical acclaim from audiences of all demographics, and has garnered the attention of producer Brian Herman from SMT Studios in Manhattan, resulting in their latest offering “WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES“, released in August of 2011.

“WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES” is an electrifying concept album that combines a variety of musical genres such as rock, jazz, punk and experimentation into a mind expanding musical piece that asks a lot of big questions about the Universe and our place in it. Recorded with the help of producer, Brian Herman, this 13 track album is by far the band’s best and most ambitious effort thus far. The album is available for purchase in digital format on iTunes, and physical copies can be purchased at the lives shows and on www.thealmightyterribles.com.

THE ALMIGHTY TERRIBLES will be on tour for all of the 2012 year, performing a variety of shows in and around the tri-state area, including a performance in front of the film “Ghostbusters” for “The Soundtrack Comes Alive” series presented by ArtsQuest and the bands’ third performance at the 2012 MusikFest in Bethlehem, PA. on Sunday, August 12th at 3:30pm.

THE ALMIGHTY TERRIBLES - "WE'RE NOT THE ONLY ONES"
Written by Dave Cahill / Produced by Brian Herman
(c) 2011 Dave Cahill (ASCAP)

We're not, where we're supposed to be, we're way off road indeed.
Save us from ourselves, save yourself from me.
I'm afraid I've got bad news, I'm calling you from the grave.
You thought that you had one more chance, but I'm sorry that it's too late.
Heartache like you've never felt before, like a dagger in you veins.
Bleeding on the floor, you're filled with so much pain.
No one gets out of here alive; we're all guaranteed to die.
So make the best time of your life, you only get one try...

But you're not the only one...no you're not the only one...
no you're not the only one...you're not the only,
no you're not the only, no you're not the only one...

Clouds of gas three light years tall, can't comprehend at all.
The magnitude of the unknown, and to think that we're that small.
Long voyage awaits us, so let's get on the mother ship.
Let's visit distant worlds, and swim with intelligent fish.
Until we put down all our guns, and we realize that we're all one.
Maybe then we'll get somewhere, and finally become.
What we're all meant to be, explorers of the galaxies.
This is just our destiny; it's the reason why we're here...

But we're not the only ones...no we're not the only ones...
no we're not the only ones...no we're not the only,
no we're not the only, no we're not the only ones..

Now let's all come back down to Earth, so that you can pay respect.
To the man that you still love, to the man that you miss.
Your friends are all concerned, about what you will do.
To deal with losing the one person, that understood you.
Please worry not my love, I promise that we'll be ok.
I know that this is hard right now, but I know that I'll see you again.
No we're not the only ones, there are billions and billions of Suns.
Abundant life in The Cosmos, we're not the only ones...

But we're not the only ones...no we're not the only ones...
no we're not the only ones...no we're not the only,

no we're not the only, no we're not the only ones...

Methodology

Written By: Dave Cahill

“METHODOLOGY”

Are you ready to see things, the way that I see things? And if you want to be like me, I suggest you seek therapy. Take a risk and cut off all your ties, Go head first as you go down the slide. But don’t let it get in your head, it will eat you alive, my friend.

‘Cause there’s a message from above, The aliens are warning us… If we don’t stop, we will destroy ourselves, I think enough is enough, enough is enough.

Doll yourself up just go outside, Blue streaks cover the bags under your eyes. And I can’t believe that you think that you look good like that to anybody. Airin’ out your laundry to the world. Starving for attention like a little girl. Cry yourself to sleep on me. I promise that I won’t tell anybody.

‘Cause there’s a methodology to all the things that I do… ‘Cause there’s a methodology to all the things that I do…

…Methodology….Methodology….Methodology…

One more chance to make it up to me, I can’t accept your apologies. Inconsistencies within the things that you like to tell me daily. Why’s it so hard to get along these days? Everywhere I’ve been has been engulfed in flame. No rhyme or reason, credit’s freezin’. Smell the treason. Blame the President…

‘Cause there’s a methodology to all the things that I do… ‘Cause there’s a methodology to all the things that I do… ‘Cause there’s a message from above, The aliens are warning us… If we don’t stop, we will destroy ourselves, I think enough is enough, enough is enough.

How Could You?

Written By: Dave Cahill

You seem, crazy, to me, and I am not the only one, who thinks that you, should see someone, it’s overdue. Lately, I think, that we’ve, really, really grown apart, right from the start, I don’t know, let’s review.

Memorize some words to say to you sometime, do you care? Rip apart my feelings in a single night. How could you? How could you?

Sister, will you, trust me? And let me in your home tonight. It’s getting late, it’s getting cold. No place to go. Relive (relive), old days (old days), good times (good times). It makes me wonder how you could, throw me out, just like that. You heartless thing.

Memorize some words to say to you sometime, do you care? Rip apart my feelings in a single night. How could you? How could you?

How could you?How could you? Throw me out, out, out, out, out, out, out? How could you? How could you? Throw me out, out, out, out, out, out? Throw me out, out, out. And I will come back for you, yes I will come back for you. How could you?

Escape

Written By: Dave Cahill

“ESCAPE”

Incredible, feeling inside. Let’s toss and turn, we’ll dance all night. Impossible, to ignore you, the way you smile, the way you move.

Your trust in me, no matter what. Some people thought, you would have given up. They said we wouldn’t, they hoped we couldn’t, now look at us, don’t you just love it?

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me,

Majestic glow, from above. What to believe, when we make first contact? Our visitors, don’t understand, why we have guns, drawn on ourselves.

They speak to you, with static voices, it makes you tremble, you start to stutter. “We do you want with us?” “What did you come here for?” “Take me with you, goodbye Earth, I’m gonna miss you.”

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me,

The things we take for granted, the days we feel alone, a sparrow watches over us. Has life lost all its meaning? Any sense of purpose at all?

The walls are closing, in around us. Don’t you wonder, how did we get here? Do you feel the, way I…feel?

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me.

Your First Drug

Written By: Dave Cahill

“YOUR FIRST DRUG”

Grassroots… Common people come together from all over, just so they can fight a common cause. Take that… I wonder what the corporate media is thinking, sitting high up on the penthouse floor. Pull out… Bring every single soldier who is stationed, in another country home right now. Rewind… Did I just say something that you’ve been thinking, since the war began so long ago?

Drug war… People locked up by a system when the system makes the drugs that they are locked up for. Import… The CIA flies in cocaine and then they fly back just so they can get a little more. Withdrawal… Pharmaceutic color coded pills with parasitic cartoons in the ads they show. Force feed… Insert the happy little pill into the mouth of your own child, every morning they wake up.

This time, we mean business. How many voices did it take? Look inside your heart… Tell me what do you see… Remember when we were young… Remember when you tried, your first drug?

Inside… Terror brought to you be people living secretly inside your home, what will you do? What’s that? Did you really think that nine eleven was the way the media told us it was? Reload… Prepare to stand up on your feet and tell the government that they will never own you. Slave ship… Sinking to the bottom, of the ocean, full of all the people you elected to control.

This time, we mean business. How many voices did it take? Look inside your heart… Tell me what do you see… Remember when we were young… Remember when you tried, your first drug?
