The music of Preciphist is like no other. It is not carboned from some existing artist but rather born from the experiences and lives of it's members. It hints at a style of music that can not be defined by current standards or styles. Preciphist strives to break the normalcy of every day music.

Biography

PRECIPHIST formed in 1998 through a number of jam sessions with mutual friends. Founding members Tim and Tim decided to take it to the next level and created PRECIPHIST.
Playing parties, clubs and any gig they could find PRECIPHIST honed their sound into a unique blend of melodic metal with an edge effect. During that time a number of guitarists and drummers came and went. “We were lucky to have them all.”
With an arsenal of cover tunes ranging from Danzig to Three Doors Down and over an albums worth of originals PRECIPHIST has become a mainstay of the New Hampshire club circuit. Timothy Rand’s powerfully unique voice, Tim Perin and Mike Woodside's thundering rhythm section, make for an exciting live show and a band that should soon be a household name in rock circles. Lou Festo's phenomenal talents as a guitar player ices this 4 layer cake
Some of PRECIPHISTS highlights include opening for RA, POPULATION ONE and Joey Belladonna (ANTHRAX). They also headlined THE POST ROAST in the summer of 2004 helping to raise over $14,000 for The Lahey Clinic cancer research.
PRECIPHIST is now in the process of releasing their debue album due out at the end of 2010. PRECIPHIST has ample PA and Lighting to accommodate large clubs as well as the intimate small rooms. TIME TO ROCK

Lyrics

HERE THEN GONE

Written By: Timothy Rand

CHECK IT OUT LOOK WHAT THE CAT DRUG IN AGAIN
I LOOK AROUND WHERE HAS MY GOOD OLD BUDY BEEN
LAYS IN WAIT WITH IN THE COLD AND POURING RAIN
HE FEELS LIKE HE HAS BEEN BETRAYED

ALL HIS DAYS AND ALL HIS LIFE
HE WAITED FOR THE CALL
NOW IT’S HERE THEN IT’S GONE
THAT IS WHAT HE SAID

HERE THEN GONE, HERE THEN GONE
AND IT’S NEVER COMING BACK
HERE THEN GONE, HERE THEN GONE

AS IT GOES ALL HE CAN DO RIGHT NOW IS WAIT
YET HE FEELS HIS THOUGHTS OF IT WERE MUCH TOO LATE
MAYBE NOW IF HE COULD GO BACK AND CHANGE THE PAST
MAYBE THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN TIME FOR WASTING
MY TIME

HERE THEN GONE HERE THEN GONE
AND IT’S NEVER COMING BACK
HERE THEN GONE, HERE THEN GONE
WON’T BE COMING BACK AROUND
HERE THEN GONE, HERE THEN GONE
AND IT’S NEVER COMING BACK
CAUSE IT’S HERE THEN IT’S GONE
THAT IS WHAT HE SAID

AND HE WENT ON AND ON AND ON, ABOUT IT ALL
AND HE WENT ON AND ON AND ON AND ON

AND HE SAID I WAS HIDING UNDERNEITH A BRIDGE
AND RUNNING FROM THE LIGHT
I CRASHED INTO THE NIGHT
WITH NOTHING MORE TO SAY

CHORUS

CRY FOR TWO

Written By: Timothy Rand

YOUR LIPS THEY’RE GETTING SOUR
GETTING SADDER BY THE HOUR
THERE’S NOTHING I CAN SAY
CAUSE I DON’T HAVE THE POWER
AND I KNOW I ‘VE CAUSED YOU PAIN
I’M THE REASON FOR YOUR DISDAIN
THERE’S NOTHING I CAN SAY
YOU GOT TO SEE IT MY WAY

AND YOU CRY FOR TWO
CAUSE I CAN’T DO THIS ANY MORE
CRY FOR TWO
CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO LOOSE IT ANY MORE

YOU CRY FOR THE BOTH OF US
AND I’LL TRY NOT TO BREAK THE TRUST
YOU CRY FOR THE BOTH OF US
CAUSE I ‘VE GOT TO MOVE ON
AND YOU’VE GOT TO BE STRONG
AND STAY HERE

THE AIR IT SMELLS LIKE WISKY
AND WE WERE GETTING FRISKY
DO YOU HATE ME CAUSE I’M GONE
OR HAVE YOU MOVED ON
THE CARDS WERE STACKED AGAINST US
AND WE WERER BOTH SO WRECKLESS
LOVE LIFE FADES AWAY
WILL IT RELIGHT SOME DAY

CHORUS
