BIND

BandMetalRock

We are modern heavy rock, merging aggressive vocals with 3-part harmonies to create a sonic force that has to be heard live to believe. Excellent dual guitar work and a phenomenal drummer combine to produce a truly memorable show.

Biography

Bind was formed in early 2000 with Gabe ,Scott , and Brian. Rich,and Lee joined in 2002 to complete the powerhouse band that you see today. Our early influences include Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath,Van Halen,A lot of really cool 80's bands,a few cool early nineties bands, of course we liked a lot of cool bands such as, Metallica, Megadeth,Queensryche, Tool,System of a Down ,King Diomand,Savatage,A perfect Circle,I could make this list extremely long, but I won't. LOL!. Currently, we listen to bands like Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid,Unearth ,Arch Enemy,All that reamains,Avenged Sevenfold,Lamb of God,and a shitload of killer bands! You know who they are! We don't necessarily try to be different, we just want to be really good at what we do, and it really shows during live performances. People dig it more if it's real. We think the live show is very important to a successful band. A great sounding cd may sell many copies,but a great band will sell many cd's.We are often told our live show is one of the best,most energetic and talented performances currently on the road! We've opened for Quiet Riot, the Carolina Hurricanes and the Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad. We've also worked with Dateline NBC,Mid Atlantic Music Conference(Twice),CBGB's, hundreds of clubs and bands that we will never forget.
We are having a great time,and would really like to make this a full time career. You will not go wrong with us! See you on the road!

Lyrics

Dreams

Written By: Gabriel Pettit, Brian Pittman

This silence divides us
It brings me down into my core
I’ve known it and shown it
It always leaves me wanting more
I’ll take it and break it
This confidence you shared with me
The answer’s a cancer
That always leaves me in a

Sea of memories
Drowning in anger I’m going under
Please save me
I’m afraid to die without knowing why I’m here

Controlling, consoling
This darkness claims to be a friend
Deceiving, believing
But leading closer to the end
So hollow, you follow
Whatever road you stand upon
So shaken, yet so taken
It always leaves me in a

Sea of memories
Drowning in anger I’m going under
Please save me
I’m afraid to die without knowing why
In a sea of memories
Drowning in anger I’m going under
Please save me
I’m afraid to die without knowing why I’m here

Solo

Sea of memories
Drowning in anger I’m going under
Please save me
I’m afraid to die without knowing why
In a sea of memories
Drowning in anger I’m going under
Please save me
I’m afraid to die without knowing why I’m here
(knowing why)
I’m afraid to die without knowing why I’m here
(knowing why)
I’m afraid to die without knowing why I’m here
(knowing why)
Why I’m here
(knowing why)
Why I’m here

Scream

Written By: Brian Pittman/Gabriel Pettit/Bind

Anger, aggression, suppression, frustration…

My tension builds…
Victim of an everyday life (What life?)
I can’t sit still…
Too much going on in my mind
My pressure builds… (pressure)
Go ahead and push it to the breaking point
The frayed ends of my sanity
Tear apart at the seams
I’ve just got to…

Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it anymore (I’ve just got to)
Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it anymore (I’ve just got to)

I close my eyes (my eyes)
See the person that I really am
I open my eyes (my eyes)
See the person you could never dare to be
This solitude is killing me, the agony
What the hell have you done to me, can’t you see
This anger’s getting stronger
I can’t take it any longer
What you can never see
Is all I feel is apathy
I’ve just got to…

Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it anymore (I’ve just got to)
Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it anymore (I’ve just got to)

My mind is like a gun, my attitude like a bullet
My last nerve is the trigger and now you’re getting on it
I’ve tried and tried to tell you but my words you don’t heed
Now I won’t be satisfied until I make you bleed
It’s all in my mind and don’t you just figure
On the outside I’m sick, inside I’m much sicker
Shattered like glass in the aftermath of the attack
Aint cutting no slack, ain’t holding back
You’re about to be schooled on how to be a martyr
What don’t kill you only makes you stronger
Push me, face me, push me….Face me!

My tension builds
I can’t sit still
My pressure builds
I’ve just got to…

Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it anymore (I’ve just got to)
Scream…
Push it, push it, push it to the breaking point
Tearing apart at the seams
Feel it, feel it
Cause I can’t take it any (more)
I’ve just got to, I’ve just got to, I’ve just got to scream.

Separate

Written By: Gabriel Pettit

Somewhere in the darkness whispers echo without reason
Faced without an ending I must hide within my mind
Taken for a soul that is empty beyond reason
Just because there is so much that I can't seem to find

Separate...Take myself from these surroundings
I can't take all the darkness that you breed

Drifting into silence, slipping far beneath the surface
The outside sees reflections, never knowing what is real
Accusing stares by blinded eyes are filled with implications
That complicated the matter behind wounds that never heal

Separate...Take myself from these surroundings
I can't take all the darkness that you breed
Separate...Lose yourself inside the system
I must face everything life throws my way

Nothing has prepared me for these feelings that come over me
Whe worlds you live in are delusions of a fantasy
I don't care what you say I don't care what you think
I don't know what's the point I don't know what this means

Separate...Take myself from these surroundings
I can't take all the darkness that you breed
Separate...Lose yourself inside the system
I must face everything life throws my way

Feed The Need

Written By: Gabriel Pettit, Brian Pittman

I hate what you do to me. It's everything about you.
You bring another victim to their knees.
I hear the voices calling me. They're coming ever closer.
Cut me as my soul is left to bleed.

My faith, your will
I've got to take this bitter pill
My hate, your greed
I've got to feed the need
got to feed the need

You take what you want from me and leave me feeling empty
I have only cravings left to feed
Now there's nothing left for me
I feel my life is ending
I don't even have my dignity

My faith, your will
I've got to take this bitter pill
My hate, your greed
I've got to feed the need
got to feed the need

All I see Killing me
Harassing me to be
Dependant on this disease you inflict
(The dark The light
The wrong the right
The deaf the dumb
I'm blind by sight)
Affliction, fixation
My whole world has come undone
Life is just sick
ADDICTION!

My faith, your will
I've got to take this bitter pill
My hate, your greed
I've got to feed the need
got to feed the need
My faith, your will
I've got to take this bitter pill
My hate, your greed
I've got to feed the need
got to feed the need

Mad Hatter

Written By: Gabriel Pettit

What has happened to this sense I have of rhyme or reason
Sanity is turning like the leaves change with the season
Finding that my grip on reality is leaving
Outwardly I'll never show, but deep inside I'm screaming

No more work today
Come on out and play
Who cares what other people say
Call me the Mad Hatter
Act the way you really feel
Make 'em think you're popping pills
I can't say if this is real
Call me the Mad Hatter

Take another look at me the man behind the mirror
I'm the one that's deep inside you seldom ever hear of
I've no problem pushing you if you do all the falling
You'll find me laughing as madness comes a-calling

No more work today
Come on out and play
Who cares what other people say
Call me the Mad Hatter
Act the way you really feel
Make 'em think you're popping pills
I can't say if this is real
Call me the Mad Hatter

(Instramental break)

Face yourself and just let go. You'll find it liberating
Quit wasting time and lose yourself. There is no sense in waiting
Deep inside the Hatter's mind you'll find the trip worth taking
Cause only by accepting can you keep your mind from breaking

No more work today
Come on out and play
Who cares what other people say
Call me the Mad Hatter
Act the way you really feel
Make 'em think you're popping pills
I can't say if this is real
Call me the Mad Hatter
Turn you mind inside out
That's what this is all about
Hear the voices start to shout
Calling the Mad Hatter
This song will stick inside your head
Sing it while you lay in bed
Slowly drive you raving mad
Call it the Mad Hatter
