Hard Rock is back, and it's tired of getting pushed around by boy bands and teen queens.

Biography

Born out of equal parts nostalgia and love for loud, aggressive music, the five members of Bellview began making music in August of 2004, looking to show the world that there were others out there that felt hard rock was not an irrelevant genre. Each one of the members came with their own set of influences, ranging from metal, to classic rock, to ska, but found a common ground in the belief that musicians should never settle for "good enough", and instead should push themselves to rise above mediocrity. With this ideal in mind, Bellview began working on a greater goal, to become a band of new ideas, shifting from emulation to innovation. Through their time as a band, Bellview has taken the rough sketches that developed during the course of its members musical lives and molded them into a sound all of their own. From intricate guitar textures to straightforward hard rock thrashers, this band screams out loud among a crowd of whispers, with only one message to give:
Never quit on what you love.

Lyrics

When All Else Fails

Written By: Bellview

Not the same
As everyone else
The standards don't apply
Always faced
With the disenchantment
Of a predetermined life
So i guess we're all ingrates
For trading all we have so far
While they sit disconcerted
And listless
They just judge
As we fuck it all up

Put down by all these notions
Of good and bad and all else in between
We're hoping that our choices one day take us
Past screams of what we should have been

I can't say we know something they don't
Never knew much past my pride
Still I think we've been walking the right path
Searching for a place to call our own

Put down by all these notions
Of good and bad and all else in between
We're hoping that our choices one day take us
Past screams of what we should have been

We finally find what we've seeked
And watch it quickly led away
But in its wake it shows the way
To follow if we care
Filled with doubt we march along
Without the blessing of our kind
I only hope we don't get lost
While following a lie

Put down by all these notions
Of good and bad and all else in between
We're hoping that our choices one day take us
Past screams of what we should have been
