BandRockMetal

The future of Rock has arrived, and it's called 4 Years Past.

Biography

If Metallica, Guns & Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Social D, 30 Seconds to Mars and Tool threw a party, it would sound like 4 Years Past. The five-piece rock monster converged on the East/Central PA scene to create a new sound. Between the energy on stage and the reaction of the crowd, they carry the reputation of being a rock and roll powerhouse.

The foundation of 4YP is cemented by George Barthel on bass and Chris St. Angelo on drums combined with the dueling guitars of Brandon "Birdhouse" Wilson and Steve Rhoads, it's all finished off by the soaring vocals of Scott Wade. The five aren't chained by the metal tag, they've played many unplugged sets for groups of their fans and did a rare live performance of "Let U Go" on WRFM which received an amazing amount of plays on the station's website. As soon as you've decided what they sound like, they jump the other way, creating a diverse and emotional show every time they take a stage.

4YP brings the feel and look of a full blown rock concert to the stages of the venues they play whether they play to 300 people or 3000.

Boasting a myspace.com profile with an average of over 100 plays per day of their songs and a fan list over 6500 strong and growing daily, 4 Years Past not only brings high energy music to the venues they play but also tons of screaming fans.

4 Years Past relates to each band member in a different way, and often times, with the audience as well. For each member of the band, it represents the time between their varied paths crossing, and the conception of what was once just a vision. All that remains, is the next 4 Years...

They have just released their debut EP "Into the Dark Divine", to rave reviews. Being called the future of rock is a big undertaking, but 4YP is ready to step up to the challenge!

Lyrics

Misery

Written By: 4 Years Past


Lyrics for "Misery"
Your shadow grows in the streetlights, as you walk away
Watching you, disappear, as you fade to gray
Now the night, is my comfort, as she's holding me
I walk this line, so uncertain, another prodigy
Now as I'm pushing through, productive agony
Now as I'm fighting through, I'm growing into me

Go on alone
Go on tonight
Sick of your misery
Can't find the remedy
All this is killing me
All this is killing me
Gonna make it right
Gonna make it right... now

Tell me now, your intentions, before I leave you here
'Cause if it's lust, that you're searching, you'll never find it dear
You can't tell me it's normal, for you to act this way
One last time, I'll indulge you, a final fantasy
Now as I'm pushing through, productive agony
Now as I'm fighting through
I'm growing into me

Go on alone
Go on tonight
Sick of your misery
Can't find the remedy
All this is killing me
All this is killing me
Gonna make it right
Gonna make it right... now

As I walk out side these shadows
And I cast your misery aside
I will build strong this legacy of
A better man inside

Go on alone
Go on tonight
Sick of your misery
Can't find the remedy
All this is killing me
All this is killing me
Gonna make it right
Gonna make it right... now

Dark Divine

Written By: 4 Years Past


Lyrics for "Dark Divine"
I see the cross that you've been carrying
And dragging, through the deepest sand
You're too weak to hold the effigy
And too absorbed to understand
Now that we're seeing through the fear
The answer's finally clear

Take!
Take it away
All the words that punish me
Take!
Take it away
All of your dirty energy

Now, so many people gather round
To hear, about your tragic tale
As you gesture to the crowd
Screaming out you can't prevail
The soldiers here can not be bluffed
Won't stop till I say enough

Take!
Take it away
All the words that punish me
Take!
Take it away
All of your dirty energy

It's always the same
(Nothing's gonna change)
You're drowning in shame
It's always the same
Change

Now, the time has finally come
And everyone is going to see
All the nasty ways you tried
Tried to, make the beaten bleed
Can't stand the way you're passing blame
Or how you're tighter upon the chain

Take!
Take it away
All the words that punish me
Take!
Take it away
All of your dirty energy

Once, you finally see through
Two times, the anger destroys you
Three strikes, denies all of your truth
Four years, you've been bleeding too
Open your eyes and you will see
The life I've been calling mine
Up here with my subjects
Proclaiming the dark divine

Take!
Take it away
All the words that punish me
Take!
Take it away
All of your dirty energy

It's always the same
(Nothing's gonna change)
You're drowning in shame
It's always the same
(Nothing gonna change)
Bleed out your disgrace
(Nothings gonna change)
When you've been erased
Change, change, change

Angel in My Eyes (Devil Inside)

Written By: 4 Years Past


Lyrics for "Angel In My Eyes"
I love the way your face
Looks on the pillowcase
As you close your eyes tonight
With every little breath
I inhale what is left
Between you, there, and my sight

I never knew your name
It don't matter it's all the same
I'm only waiting for a taste
I've been watching you
'Cause it's all that I can do
There's an angel in my eyes
And a devil inside

Touch you from where I stand
You couldn't feel my hand
Sliding down your skin so slowly
This just might be a curse
Each night I need you worse
I'm only here for you to tell me

I never knew your name
It don't matter it's all the same
I'm only waiting for a taste
I've been watching you
'Cause it's all that I can do
There's an angel in my eyes
And a devil inside

Own the Night

Written By: 4 Years Past


Lyrics for "Own the Night"
I came in sharp and struck a pose
You locked the door and dropped your clothes
Tonight we both know
You look at me and smile slow
Tell me you've got no where to go

One more time out with the broken
One more time out with the damned
One more time out with the heathens
One more time out in demand
One more time to open their eyes
One more time to own the night

One more time to own the night... Go

Now we've both been right here once before
Now we're both gripping around for more
One more late encore
And as I finally walk from this
I know we'll both never forget

One more time out with the broken
One more time out with the damned
One more time out with the heathens
One more time out in demand
One more time to open their eyes
One more time to own the night

One more time to own the night...

And when we finally say goodbye
(One more time to own the night)
All the ways you mystify
(One more time to own the night)
Teaching you to justify
(One more time to own the night)
This is how we own the night

The cash is scattered 'cross the bar
Clearin' it won't be very hard
And as they make their way to me
Tryin' to make them all believe
From the ceiling to the stage
For the glory of the game
One more time to open their eyes
One more time to own the night

One more time to own the night...
