One Bullet Solution

One Bullet Solution

BandRockMetal

Formed in late 2006 with the idea of a new year bringing a new band to life that was designed to give the New England music scene something to rave about. The music is composed of catchy riffs, solid rhythm, and powerful vocals. This band was meant to shake the stage and get people jumping.

Biography

Why are we called One Bullet Solution? What comes to mind when you think of a bullet? Pain maybe? Violence? Anguish? Suffering? Fear? Well, one thing we think of far too infrequently is "solution". Now, I know you are reading this going "What the hell does that mean"? Everyone is full of drama and over-exaggerating their problems to the point that we've created a problem. Plus, no one has, and most do not even want solutions. Well, this project is formed around the belief that there is no one bullet that can solve anything. Life takes work, honor, and discipline. Therefore to solve problems there needs to be less complaining and more solutions. Amidst this knowledge came four people with these same values which shine through in their music. It takes effort, strength, honor, and dedication to get anything accomplished, and this project proves this.

Formed in December of '06, these members came from diverse and well versed musical preojects. Projects that have had years of effort and struggle behind them, leaving these members the knowledge needed to form a fresh, well-honed group. Each member brings a different sound, style, and attitude to the music that makes it unique. These members have worked to shape the elements of music they love into a sound that displays their passions and their eagerness to learn and grow. So birthed One Bullet Solution.

The four founding members of this band came together sharing the same passion and love for music as one another, striving for the same goal of writing music that people will love and music that people will want to slam their heads to. The members are Steve, Tom, Josh, and Tim and each bring their own creativity to the bands set list. The music is composed of catchy riffs, solid rhythm, and powerful vocals. The core of the band is the genius writing duo that blends well with their two different styles. Steve, the more power, headbanging, break down specialist mixing with Josh, the shredding/sweeping master who writes the more melodic, complicated, odd timed riffs, is bound to create something for a crowd to move to. The backbone of the band is the rhythm section; that of which starts with Tim Khanoyan, longtime friend of the drummer. The two have colalborated to make a clockwork rhythm section look easy to play. Tom, the youngest member of the band, tries to bring his young energy to the show with strong and consistent beats, cleverly placed fills, and loud double-bass. Influences include Killswitch Engage, Rush, Shadows Fall, Lamb of God, Deftones, Avenged Sevenfold, As I Lay Dying, Korn, Mudvayne, Sublime, Godsmack, and Bury Your Dead.

Lyrics

Sibliance

Written By: One Bullet Solution

I lose this from you
I’ve told you the truth
Holding back for fear of closing in on my regret
Teaching words I’m speaking to try and just forget
As I hold them close to my heart I lose part of who I am
Holding back from speaking words I can never speak again
I’m held back as my failures turn to lies
Standing in a place I never thought I would survive

All my words are obvious but just don’t seem right
Every time I speak them my arms begin to feel tight
Even though I try to do the best I know is right
In the midst I leave myself behind

I lose this from you
I’ve spoken the truth

All my words are obvious but just don’t seem right
Every time I speak them my arms begin to feel tight
Even though I try to do the best I know is right
In the midst I leave myself behind
All my words are obvious
My arms feel tight
The best I know is right
I leave myself behind

(Scream)

So you disgust yourself with life hanging across your skin
So you then thrust yourself medicating all over again

Can you feel me deep underneath your skin?
Can you take it?
Every muscle starts constricting

Pass the point of change and live forevermore
Pass the point of change and let yourself

Can you feel the emotion running across your lips?

Can you feel me deep underneath your skin?
Can you take it?
Every muscle starts constricting

Can you feel me clearing out of your skin?
Can you take it?
Every muscle begins healing

Pass the point of change and live forevermore
Pass the point of change and let yourself soar

Last Time

Written By: One Bullet Solution

Sleepless here tonight
In this bed I lie awake, I lie awake
Sleepless here for life
In my bed I lie awake, I lie awake

It’s not too much to change in me
Although I make it out to be
It’s not too much to change in me
To learn to let things go

This is the last time I will let fear control who I am
This is the last time I will let it

Finally sleeping right
In my head I start to break, I start to break
All my fear of confidence
Struggling to make sense of this
All my fear of confidence
Struggling just to make some sense

It’s not too much to change in me
Although I make it out to be
It’s not too much to change in me
Inside

This is the last time I will let fear control who I am
This is the last time I will let it
This is the last time I will let fear control who I am
This is the last time I will let it take me over

This is the last time I will let fear control who I am
This is the last time I will let it
This is the last time I will let fear control who I am
This is the last time I will let it take me over

Of the Essence

Written By: One Bullet Solution

A draft of failure blows outside
Swaying the structure I have built inside
Consumed I deliberate
Freeing the ones I’ve held so close

The connection between the ones we love
The connection between the ones we love
Has pulled us apart
It has pulled us apart

The cost of failure consumes our lives
Failing to conquer the tests of time
We are just numbers
To get back what we’ve had this time is just too late

The connection between the ones we love
The connection between the ones we love
Falls apart at the seams
Falls apart as I scream

I’m still breathing
But I’ve stopped learning
How to separate
My life from you

The sun is setting behind you
The sun is setting behind you
The connection between the ones we love
The connection between the ones we love
Falls apart at the seams
Falls apart as it seems
The connection between the ones we love
The connection between the ones we love
Falls apart at the seams
Falls apart as we scream

Memory Box

Written By: One Bullet Solution

This is my existence
Staring at myself through a photograph
Memories running through still pictures
Although a lot has changed since then

But this won't unchange me
This doesn't change anything
This won't change me
You won't change me

This is my resistance
To Letting myself get caught in the past
Wandering paths through these stone pictures
Although a lot has changed since then

But this won't unchange me
This doesn't change anything
This won't change me
You won't change me

How am I supposed to feel?
How am I supposed to feel?
How am I supposed to feel?
How am I supposed to?
How am i?

But this won't unchange me
This doesn't change anything
This won't change me
You won't change me
You won't change me

Awaken Life

Written By: One Bullet Solution

A glimpse of life flashes behind our eyes
Opening up our minds
Reaching across the skies

Lying here lifeless
Your words become memories
What you taught in life is priceless
But in death becomes our sanity

We live in a world of deserted angels (fallen angels)
We live in a world of exalted men (fallen men)

Hate becoming worthless
My heart has begun to speak
Of pain that is unheard of
These are the words my heart begins to bleed

Our lives are set to a tempo of darkness and strife
To teach us to push for our strongest inside
To pick ourselves above the darkness and fight

We live in a world of deserted angels (fallen angels)
We live in a world of exalted men (fallen men)

We live in a world of deserted angels (fallen angels)
We live in a world of exalted men (fallen men)
We live in a world of deserted angels (fallen angels)
We live in a world of exalted men (fallen men)
