Biography

Opensight is a band with an honest and versatile vision of music. Their songs are born from the rock/metal background but are inspired by the sophistication of progressive music and the dramatic effect of cinema. Dynamics are created thanks to contrasts, where the agression and dissonance are met with melody and athmospherics, resulting in songs with complex arrangements but simple structures. Memorable melodies, dynamic shifts, acoustic passages and lyrics that deal with personal and universal realities are the ingredients that give Opensight its identity. A band willing to experiment with music that’s progressive but not pretencious.

Those elements are featured on Opensight’s debut “Prosthetic Soul”, which got rave reviews from media and audiences alike, including high profile publications like Rolling Stone Magazine. “Prosthetic Soul” gave a starting point for the band’s vision and the opportunity to work with Jim Morris, who mastered the recording at Morrisound Recording at Tampa, FL. A couple of years later, the band is presenting their second effort “The Voice Of Nothing” which was engineered at the new AN7 Studios and shows a more adventurous selection of songs; increasing the drama and atmosphere, but keeping the melody and emotion that defines the music of the band.

Opensight has established itself as a live band first and foremost, doing live presentations in different cities in Colombia and being part of festivals that have gathered over 7.000 people. The sound, performance and general professionalism are aspects that make Opensight an ideal live band, with concerts being crucial in its developement and growth.

Lyrics

Only When

Written By: Ivan David Amaya

Only loved when I’m away Only relevant through faith Colors are real only when I see them on the screen The paper’s burnt, I cannot read
The tragedy hides the cause I can’t feel my heartbeat no more Only when I’m alone This truth is ever-changing
Chaos reigns, you’re not aware Able to see when I realize that lights fade too soon Nonsense of the deleted scene
If you look into my eyes Your entire world would seem unknown

Former Heroes

Written By: Ivan David Amaya

A plan on hold for far too long
The light remains but is still not close
“Serious flaws went ignored”
I take my time to find the stain
Deep inside I know it’s too late
All those paths lead down there
“You can leave, but you’ll be back again”
A creed that’s built on lies
The mask is vanishing as heroes turn to pawns
All the facts I could not see
Isolation arrives
After finding a secret that will disappoint
Disillusion in my voice
Fragile goals Fiction works
The promise of a virgin whore
I still look for the proof
“You can dream, but you won’t find the truth”
Touched a nerve unveiled the face
Killed the hero you once hailed
Tragic faith it’s too late
A random face You can’t avoid your fate

Deleted Scene

Written By: Ivan David Amaya

I’ve been there and I feel like I could never return on my
own
I’m here and I fell I will never leave
I will never live
Silence that permeates the core of what seems divine
Cold but it burns
The addictive taste, a poison that claims to be one of a
kind
CHORUS
I’ll never remember
I’ll never know what went wrong
A mental rejection
It took place but I don’t recall
Intentional blackout to vanish events that live
Inside of me
An alternate ending, a chapter that’s lost and will
Never be found
My repressed memories
I don’t ever want to see you again
A repressed memory
I don’t ever want to feel again
