Biography

Grim Drowsiness aims to create an aggressive but melodic sound inspired from classical artists like Wagner and Bach as well. The elaborate patterns and phrasings found in each song give space to dreamlike lyrics that complete the compositions. Often the contents deal with the uneasiness of living in modern society inspiring the listener to become aware of the true reality which pushes human beings to an endless "grim drowsiness".

After a brief period together years ago, the current Grim Drowsiness was started in 2006 when Mariano, Simona and Alberto decided to form a band to express their passion toward music, combining various metal influences. In order to complete the lineup, Fabrizio joined the band and later Guido took the place of Mattia Cossu on bass guitar.

Lyrics

Morning Lord

Written By: Fabrizio Pinna

[ML:] Welcome to my world, painfully angered soul
Never crying more, I’m waiting mankind’s falls
Ashes stay beneath here, protecting devil’s own
From the darkened faith, you know you cannot escape

[S:] I am dead in peace, you know, I’ve made an era.
[ML:] I’ve seen all the eras in your world, I’m the guardian of your race
[S:] No one can understand you, isn’t this life after death?
[ML:] I see the fear inside your eyes, this is the death after life!

[S:] No! You are lying to me, this cannot be
[ML:] I’ll take care of your soul, I am the Morning Lord

[S:] I am the one who made the war, honour and victory are mine.
[ML:] Impressive power I feel in you, and in a thousand and more before
[S:] My eyes have seen the horror of the war, blood and tears flowing away
[ML:] Liar… I remember you: laughing while cutting down enemy’s dreams

[S:] No! You are lying to me, this cannot be
[ML:] I’ll take care of your soul, I am the Morning Lord

[S:] I am the last of my race, warriors without pain
My strength is at your commands, what you’ve planned for me?
Give me a sword and I’ll return to kill again
Master, I will serve you forevermore
[ML:] I don’t need you foolish soul, your madness is never-ending
I am stronger than a thousand of you
I can kill an army with a finger
I cannot die, impossible to take my life away

[S:] No! You are lying to me, this cannot be
[ML:] I’ll take care of your soul, I am the Morning Lord
