Oh, my beautiful trouble

Oh, my beautiful trouble

BandEDMGothic

OMBT is a music project which associates electronic music with sweet, fluent and dark atmospheres that have a deep, philosophical and spiritual sense. Their lyrics treats the most intimate parts of us: knowledge of the unknown, the principles of the universe and existence on the Earth.

Biography

OMBT were born at the end of 2006 in Matera (Italy). The band is the result of the collaboration between three musicians that had played together in another goth rock project. The distinctiveness of the band lies in the construction of their songs, which move away from the patterns of the pop song structure, though keeping a melodic appeal. As a matter of fact, the songs present asymmetries in the alternation of verses and refrains; changes of style which infuse a sense of unpredictability and cohesiveness to the lyrics; a variety of guitar voicing, but also a unique taste for the classic pre-refrains.

A physical distance separates the members of the band, who are based in two countries: Italy and England. This distance has constituted their ultimate feature in composition: the band is free from any reciprocal conditioning and manages to build a new sound without any compromise.

Their first CD “Tempting you” summarizes their philosophy and invites the listener for a new set of challenges.

Lyrics

Eyes Wide Shut To the World

Written By: OMBT

A young lady with a black fringe is in the mirror full of dust
She is powdering her white nose but her face is full of tears

She is walking so quietly and she is whispering so hardly
She is walking so quietly and she is whispering so hardly

The speed of life is in her veins
And her hands are reaching out the sky
The fidelity to her crying man
Becomes a thousand perfect sins
Her crystal body is on the silky blanket
Acting as a snake
The fidelity to her crying man
Becomes a thousand perfect lies

And hundred centuries passed
While bloody tears were dominating
Here is again a sinful earth
That’s breathing with the same rhythm

Tenderness…
Blue sky…
White wings…
Oh she was dreaming so warmly

Red eyes of…
Black fingers…
Deep breath…
Oh she was dreaming so...

Feel Me

Written By: OMBT

I'll draw you the way of life
I'll wait for you under a tree feel me
When the hands of the clock’ll die
I'll draw in a warm stream feel me

Take me there...fall asleep in my arms
Take me there...excuse me for my words

Run when you hear me shouting
Fall asleep in my arms
Sorry for my story my dreams
Excuse me for my words

I will dig you the tunnel for the castle
I will steel you some cherries feel me
There will be tears in the space
I will die on your knees feel me
Take me there...
Take me there...

Feel me and the bud of peony
Will make your heart full of tenderness
Feel me and the bud of peony
Will make your heart full of tenderness

And the flow of fountain
Will wash your dry skin of lies
