Hyak-Ro

BandRock

We are a Rock and Roll band. Some would categorize us as "Hard Rock", but we merely play what we believe Rock should be. We are influenced by great musicians, and not by great marketing. We love the soul of the seventies, the guitar of the eighties, and the angst of the early nineties.

Biography

Hyak-Ro is a true three piece band, that started in Washington as a three piece with lead vocals. We believe in big drums, dynamic guitar work, solid bass lines, and meaningful lyrics. We are influenced by bands such as Tool, Queensryche, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Clutch, Helmet and many other bands that contain musicians playing music they wrote. We don't like looped samples. We don't like so called "backing tracks." The music should be free to flow, and further more the music should be the focus. We don't where outfits, or paint our faces. We don't pretend to be anything more then three guys trying to make good music. We have traveled a long road with many detours and mishaps of life. Our music is passionate and reflects the unity we have created by traveling this road together. In short we are a rock and roll band our story has been told before, but it's sound is never the same.

Lyrics

Divided

Written By: Ken

1st VERSE

I've got no motive
Got no reason to be anything
Self divided
I pit myself against my self again
Several voices rolled into one
Each tuned to a different ear

CHORUS

I've been out of touch
Contradictive thinking too much
Sifting through the thoughts in my head
I agree to disagree,
And then I change my mind

2nd VERSE

Eyes are folded
Looking in to see the truth with in
Put my words against the post
See, which ones can take the fear

CHORUS

I've been out of touch
Contradictive thinking too much
Sifting through the thoughts in my head
I agree to disagree,
And then I change my mind
