LifeGoesOnWithoutMe

BandMetalGothic

First off...it's real METAL!! No hidden ambitions here. The music and lyrics are aggressive, with no punches being pulled. The same principles apply to the live performance. Energetic and entertaining. You won't soon forget us because we are relentless!

Biography

"Earth to Earth, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust..."
We are the planet's waste as human beings permanently take for granted, everything they have. We are but a small chapter in history that is part of a much greater plan. No matter what, no matter when and no matter why, the one common bond is this:
Life Goes On Without Me.
For the heavy metal collective ripping out of Toronto, Canada, "Life..." has been going on since March of 2004 and the musical chemistry was instantly overwhelming as these dark minds illuminated a common purpose.

For a genre that takes turns rising in the spotlight, metal has not left us. Metal lives on by the bands that never surrendered to the dreams of fame
and fortune - the strongest wills and the thickest blood have prevailed to keep the scene heavy in the face of conformity. These men wears their devotion to heavy metal like a badge of honour in a
world of separated tastes that has allowed for the fusion of several types of metal to create this bone-crushing power house of hybrid deathcore.

Labels aside, what matters most to LGOWM are the pulsating rhythms, thrashing guitars, driving bass lines and unworldly vocals that rip through hearts with an aggressive intensity that leaves blood on the walls. This is music that is made to "kick people in the face". The intoxicating energy emitted by the band has resulted in a cult like following that is growing at a rapid rate and with a 3-song demo (2005), independently released full length album
"Beyond Salvation" (2006), countless local shows and both a South American Tour and Milwaukee Metalfest (2007) under their belt, it's impossible to fight the fact that the sonic killing spree will continue and "LifeGoesOnWithoutMe"'s notoriety will leave a gash in the world of heavy metal.

Lyrics

Alas

Written By: Andres Valenzuela

I won't be controlled
I won't be

I've bled my eyes for you
I've bled my eyes for you
So you could notice that I'm alive
I'm made of flesh and bones
Excuse me while I pray for my soul

The guilt, the penalty, to be alone

Seeking virtue, the light of god
We are lost in the forest of skulls
Seeking light, freedom
We are lost
We are lost
We are lost
Alas....Alone

I won't be controlled
I won't be

You are the blood that
runs through my veins
You are the never ending light
I'm the virus in your blood
I'm the reason the night is dark

Seeking virtue, the light of god
We are lost in the forest of skulls
Seeking light, freedom
We are lost
We are lost
We are lost

Alas....Alone

Alas....Alone

Alas....Alone

Alas....Alone

Same Deal

Written By: Andres Valenzuela

Soul of rivers
Streams of blood
Sounds of agony
A desperate cry

It Holds Your Heart

You gave your life
Nailed to the cross
You gave your life
A crowns of thorns

Gun Down
Fools rush in,
where angels dare not to fly
Gun Down
Your life is a mess
One last bullet with your fucking name

In the eyes of god
We tend to lie
Fortifying a wall of crimes
Reflecting the love for our lives
Sick of this world
Infested with norms
Bullets and bombs,
Gives us a place in this world
