BandRockAlternative

Nether presents a layered music style in the progressive/alternative rock genre. Heavy guitar riffs mixed with melodic vocals best describes what you'll hear.

Biography

Nether was first formed by Tre in 2006.
Progressive/ Alternative Rock is what best describes our music. The name, Nether, meaning "under," really captures the whole concept of the band. Music is everywhere. It is a marker people use to define every time period and phase of their lives. The idea of Nether is to create a layered music style. Easy to get into on the surface, but lyrically complex and musically challenging. The more you listen, the more you'll find! The band has been a 5 piece with two guitars, bass, and drums. We've added an electric piano recently and future songs will feature it more heavily.

Lyrics

Under this Facade

Written By: Nether

Why is there war? This is the reason: human disease, a plague upon ourselves. The more we survive, the more we lay waste. We bring up the weak and tell them to fly.

Run on my children! You are the saviours, or just a number that dies in the storm. Supposedly special yet there is nothing that cannot be done by some younger face.

And who are our idols? What do they teach? Reflection upon us: we hate ourselves.

Reality is lost! I am god! But you are all gods so who is the answer? The quest is for relief, to be buried in oblivion. Live for today! What consequense tomorrow? Longing for attention. So is the throng. Not looking for the answer just looking to ignore. All faith is a weakness. All lines; a door. Inside it's just anger frustrated and bored.

True power is money. The capitalist gord. Now we're back to the reason this question isn't solved.

So I drink to your health. I smoke to your memory. I shoot for the stars. I breathe to be heard. I enter your lives time and time again. It rips mine apart; these pieces of me. We all want more.

So I drink to your health. I smoke to your memory. I shoot for the stars. I breathe to be heard. I enter your lives time and time again. It rips mine apart; these pieces of me. We all want more. We all want love. We're all the same under this facade.

The Melding

Written By: Nether

I'm falling.

I see it in your eyes. What have I become when all is said and done? What will come of this? Melding who I am.

It's there in your eyes; the farthest place I'll ever go. A part of self dies; the Pheonix to the flame. I flew to heaven, I called up the channel and tuned to you. Now it's an obsession and I find the fire that flows from you.

I see it in your eyes. Your eyes. What have I become when all is said and done? What will come of this? Melding who I am.

In absence the phantom a feeling I can't explain. Your eyes are a doorway, a maze, and a pool of green. This brighter tommorrow that only the Fates can claim; this wind. So I take the steps and I find that this current I'm swept in is you.

I see it in your eyes. Your eyes. What have I become when all is said and done? What will come of this? Melding who I am.

I will breathe for this. Die with every kiss. I will breathe for this.

Obsession of Self

Written By: Nether

Life. It's never good enough. It's never what you want. It's pain and it was meant to be this way with no explaining why. I held your hand through this while you chose. You made the choice to leave us behind.

I will be there; fall apart. You never choose your part. And I will be your broken heart. Don't run away from this life.

What went wrong for you? What better now has come? For all have faced the mirror desolate and felt the longing. I held your hand through this while you chose. So step up! Face destiny. Wake up! Wake up wake up wake up wake up...

and I will be there fall apart. You never choose your part. And I will be your broken heart. Don't run away from this life. Life.

Word

Written By: Nether

What I came for I cannot say, but I've fallen from the source. And to this memory, my absent reasons. The things I want aren't what they say. Nothing more.
Tomorrow may come.
Your fascination; I take it too far. I draw you to the flame. You're sucked in motion; this human maelstrom. These eyes pour out a dark and drawing gaze. So sad hypnotic. Attention from the world.
Tomorrow may never come. Follow me.
Come and I'll take you. I'll tear you apart, for tomorrow may come. Tomorrow may never come. Watching, willing. Can you fix this?
Come and I'll take you I'll tear you apart for tomorrow may come. Tomorrow may never come. Drink it deeper. Now you will see what your lies have done.
Words are... words are my disguise. Words are... words are my demise.
Now we burn bright retaliation to the sky. Callow and it's of our own design. We're all screaming, "Onward morbid one!" Now you see your time has come to end.
Down I come.
