Biography

Embers Arise is a metal band from Sweden who begun to play together in the fall of 2004. Everyone in EA were in other bands before but due to the lack of members they decided to join forces. They recorded 4 demos under that time, and played live quite alot, and also had the opportunity to be an opening act to the Swedish metalbands Darkane and Dismember, and playing a festival with bands such as Evergrey and Dia Psalma. EA won the competition Demo of the year 2006 in their hometown Eskilstuna, which gave them more gigs and also as headline on two big local festivals, making them a growing local fan base. In Dec 07 the lineup changed with a new drummer and with one vocalist short. EA released their fifth demo, mid-May 2008, called "Once the silence is broken, fear does not exist", and played a bunch of gigs. Mid-Dec 2008, the lineup changed once again, with one drummer short, due to different goals regarding songwriting/musicianship etc. EA are currently rehearsing with their new drummer, Patrick "Ingolf" Taunu, and will start pre-produceing for the upcoming album in 2009/2010.

Lyrics

The Prison, The Creation, The Freedom

Written By: Nicklas Börstell

Everything was ice cold.
And now I swim on the sun
The same sun that now reach my eyes.
I've tamed the senses of miserys way

By mind we are free. By mind we are captured.

Self-control and self-destruction
wrestling inside of my mind
Within I keep the shaped creation
The freedom made from blood, sweat and tears

Face to face with everything
I clench my fist because I know I will never break
Running from nothing now
Chaos is fed or hope is nurtured

I do my best to awake the world
A world still in fear of knowledge
Still following footsteps of the lost
It seems the key is in blood, sweat and tears

By mind we are free. By mind we are captured.

Face to face with everything
I clench my fist because I know I will never break
Running from nothing
Chaos is fed or hope is nurtured

Cut their throats so they can't lie

Cut off the wings and we can't fly
Some might die and don't even try
The wings grow back and again we fly
The ones that fight will never die

Still a concious choice

Face to face with everything
I clench my fist because I know I will never break
Running from nothing
Chaos is fed and hope is nurtured

By mind we are eternally free
By mind we are eternally captured
By mind we are eternally creating our own lives.

The Least Wanted

Written By: Niclas Börstell

This is not an ounce of self-pity. It's just a statement about how it is.
There is a game taking place on the outside.
And as I lose, my dignity escapes.

The shallowness has deprived all of us
So many differences but no real trust

It seems that I'm only vermin. The way you stare just makes it more clear.
There is a game taking place on the outside.
And as I lose I pray for catastrophy.

Ch:
I reject this world to a level where I won't even die on judgement day.
Have in mind that I'm the least wanted.
I reject a role in this play of ironic comedy.
Free to know that I'm the least wanted.

Fulfil every perverted desire, the only way is to be worse than you.
Fucking around like dogs in a backyard. Just revel in sin and make it worse.

You say your body is a temple,
and still you have a fear of facing your own naked reflection.

Ch:
I reject this world to a level where I won't even die on judgement day.
Have in mind that I'm the least wanted.
I reject a role in this play of ironic comedy.
Free to know that I'm the least wanted.

The loneliness has deprived all of you
So many obsticles to travel through

Ch:
I will now go away, from your dismay with nothing else to say except:
From now on you are the least wanted.
Never play this game again and realize that withdraw is the way to win.
In the end you are the least wanted.

Footsteps away from a puddle of blood.
Stepping on hearts as we live in the mud.
A crowded globe where no one cares.
Always surrounded but no one is there.
Suddenly it hits me like it's so clear
I feel joy tomorrow if I conquer my fears.
I know what I am, and I know what I'm not.
The hope to get through this is all that I've got.

När Vi Våndas I Tystnad

Written By: N.Börstell

Spoken:
You gaze nowhere but inwards, never to experience the world on the other side of your eyes
It’s time to turn your thoughts into words
Because when we suffer in silence
No one will understand…

When the words starts to flow again
The chaos within will lose its voice
Oppressed feelings claim their rights
And they’re trying to break through the surface

Forever, dropping nukes on the inner shrine
And still, we don't understand that something's lost.

Scream and the world is coloured.
Sweep and clean your soul.
Speak, and they fire blanks.
There's a brave new world.

Violence is made this way
The exploding feeling as the fist flies through the air

Scream and the world is coloured.
Sweep and clean your soul.
Speak, and they fire blanks.
There's a brave new world.

Ch:
The whole planet's speechless, without legs we try to run
Fleeing but still silent. När vi våndas i tystnad

When life becomes art, so does the blackest portrait
But the artist has died along with life
I scream for our own self-preservation
Once the silence is broken, fear does not exist

Ch:
The whole planet's speechless, without legs we try to run
Fleeing but still silent. Where at war with our inner peace.
Something's eating colours and your view is drained in black. Still and always silent.
När vi våndas, när vi våndas i tystnad.

Once the silence is broken, fear does not exist…

Once the silence is broken, fear does not exist…

Once the silence is broken, fear does not exist…
