Biography

Stygian was started because we are all meant to be muscians. We play with passion no matter what. We started in 1999 as a Metallica cover band. All we did was practice and learn songs from Metallica who was our biggest influence and favorite band. We believe this was crucial to all of us developing our skills and overall tightness as a band. After a few years we began expanding and writing our own music. Demo after demo we grew and developed our sound, getting our name out there with every new song. We got to the sound we have today when lead guitarist Ed Sobon Joined the band in 2004. Our influences now range from Metallica and Alice in Chains to bands like Pantera and Devildriver. This blend brought about our debut album "Struggle" which we self-released in Nov. 2006. Through relentless networking via the internet, we have built a loyal and strong fan base all over the world. We have been able to use this to sell our album not only in the U.S. but in places like the U.K., Australia, Denmark, Mexico, and Poland. We have regular downloads on I-Tunes and the fans have really spoken highly of our album. Our live show has become tighter and tighter and we have headlined big venues as well as opened for nationals like Soil and Symphony X. We have played shows out of state and are equiped to tour. We are currently writing and tracking the next album in our studio.

Lyrics

Wasted on the Day

Written By: Frank Leary

Wasted on the Day

Ooh, I feel...
Ooh, I feel...

This, worse than I ever planned
I'm taking it to the man who brands the silver hand
I'm feeling, down conniving all around
It drags me to the ground
It nails me to the ground, I'm feeling

Down, I'm burning to see
See the only way, I'm wasting away
Wasted on the Day

So, surreal
So, surreal

Fate not what it seems to be
betray me willfully, surrounding me with grief
Intentions Flee, I'm free to roam with greed
but still I need the key to seal my misery
I'm feeling

Down, I'm burning to see
See the only way, I'm wasting away
Wasted on the Day

I realize my life can be changed
Realize your life can be changed

Ooh, I'm burning to see
See the only way, I'm wasting away
Wasted on the day
(Everyday)
Wasted on the day
(Everyday)
Wasted on the day

Rise Alone

Written By: Frank Leary

Rise Alone

(Verse I)

Forward Motions All Have Been Denied
Twisted Feelings Still Alive Inside
Oh, If I Ever Could Turn Back Time
Would These Feelings Swell Up Or Die?

(Chorus I)

Why Do we Live So Blind?
What Will It Take For Us, To Shine?

(Verse II)

Stains Of Pain Have Pushed Us To The Edge
Weakening Our Knees Begin To Bend
Oh Please Our Dreams, They Are Almost Dead
It's Not Too Late To Clear Out Your Head

(Chorus II)

Why Do We Live So Blind?
What Will It Take To Shine?
Why Do We Live So Bold?
What Will It Take To Mold, Our Souls?

(Bridge)

If One Or Two Would Rise, Then All Of Us Could Fight
No It Can Not Be Done Alone, We Need To Know We've Grown

(Chorus III)

Why Do We Live So Blind?
What Will It Take To Shine?
Why Do We Live So Bold?
What Will It Take To Mold...

The Game

Written By: Frank Leary

The Game

(Verse I)

Too Late...
Too Many Stitches Have They Come to Make
We Haven't Got Anything More To Break
We've Got The Taste to Face, And Need to Achieve
We'll Bleed...

(Chorus I)

He's Coming Out To Play Now
Keep Your Children Safe Now
If He Finds You Somehow
You Better Run And Scream Out Loud

(Verse II)

With Haste...
We'll Grab The Torch And We Will March The Street
All Looking For The One To Suffocate
We Dim The Lights So We will seem So Faint
No Wait...

(Chorus II)

He's Coming Out To Play Now
Keep Your Children Safe Now
If He Finds You Somehow
You Better Run And Scream Out Loud

(Solo)

(Verse III)

In Vain...
All The Ones Who've Gone Or Felt The Pain
Now We Have Come All The More Desperate
To Understand The Meaning of This Game
Too Late...

(Repeat Chorus)
