June 1st, 2010 marked a new day for Christian music. When Coriolis released their sophomore album, The Endless Funeral, music lovers were exposed to a new breed of dark melodies. In the words of one such survivor who reviewed the album, "All the veterans of dark rock wish they'd composed lyrics and vocal arrangements like the ones here included."

Unifying harsh, industrial-strength electronics with melodic, catchy songwriting is no easy feat, but Coriolis combines all these elements with heavy, metal-influenced guitars to create a sound that that is best described as "melodic industrial hard rock." But why stop there? "I'm tired of hearing lyrics that are just thrown together," says founder, Jonathan P. Stamets. "If you're going to spend countless hours making sure the music and programming are just right, why not go the extra mile and write poetic lyrics, that have some real meaning?"

But things didn't just come together overnight. Coriolis began in 2004, with Jonathan as its sole member. Jonathan released the Coriolis self-titled debut on Psychoacoustix Records, and quickly gained a fanbase in the underground industrial and goth scenes. But the relationship with the label didn't last long.

After the unexpected death of the founder of Psychoacoustix, the label closed down, and Coriolis officially became a "do it yourself" band. The next few years were spent getting a live band together, to bring the show on the road. "Nobody likes to see a show where one or two guys sing along

to a laptop computer and call it a concert," Jonathan observes. "I wanted to make sure our live show still had the full energy of a hard rock band."

When a second pressing of the debut album became necessary, Coriolis partnered with Youngside Records out of Florida. A special edition was released, with bonus track "Cry Wolf." This marked the beginning of a fruitful relationship between Coriolis and Youngside.

After playing a number of shows and festivals alongside artists like Deadstar Assembly, Shiny Toy Guns, Brian Head Welch, and many more, Jonathan began to realize how valuable his bandmates were to the overall sound of Coriolis. In 2009, guitarist Dan Schultz and drummer Jim Yanus were officially added to the band roster, and Coriolis began recording the concept album: "The Endless Funeral."

Lyrics

See You in Hell

Written By: Jonathan P. Stamets

I want to run, I want to hide.
Tough luck, I can't escape what's inside.
Another man; I never can get the upper hand.
A missing link, or just a chink in the armor I've built against the world?
You bring me down when you're around.
My little parasite

I'm on the brink
I want to think for myself without your influence
Another day to be betrayed, you molded me like clay
You won't win
Let it begin
I'm gonna fight you tooth and nail
So lock and load or hit the road
You're gonna fail

Make yourself right at home
By myself, not alone
I've become Mr. Hyde
Can't escape what's inside

You make me hate you
I want to suffocate you
I only want to see you die
You long to rape me
And I'm so out of shape
Thanks to you,
to you and all your lies
My hate is burning
I will embrace my yearning
My angry fingers 'round your neck
No soul to sell, no one to tell
I'll see you in Hell

I win, I lose
I seem screwed no matter what I choose.
Damned if I do, damned if I don't,
but don't think I won't.
Because it's not fair; this bond that we share, and I don't even know how you got there.
I need to watch you bleed if it's the last thing I do.

Make yourself right at home
By myself, not alone
I've become Mr. Hyde
Can't escape what's inside

You make me hate you
I want to suffocate you
I only want to see you die
You long to rape me
And I'm so out of shape
Thanks to you,
to you and all your lies
My hate is burning
I will embrace my yearning
My angry fingers 'round your neck
No soul to sell, no one to tell
I'll see you in Hell
