Biography

Sylver Myst, formed in 2001, is comprised of 6 talented members, each of which pulls their inspiration from many different musical genres and backgrounds.

The Sylver Myst members thoroughly enjoy performing at live events, and they have quickly and effortlessly built a respectable “live” reputation and following. In it’s short existence the band has performed with several of the “heavy hitters” in the Femme-Metal genre. Some of the internationally famous bands, which have shared the stage with Sylver Myst, include After Forever, Leave’s Eyes, Elis, Autumn, Nemesea, Darkwell, Asrai, Imperia and The Wounded.

Described by a national Dutch radio show as “a live band that manages to masterfully combine the grasping power of heavy metal-riffs with broad arrangements, and all this without succumbing to frivolous and self-defiling solo play”. Also the jury of the Stoepslag band contest was so impressed with Sylver Myst that they won the contest in the spring of 2005.

After two demo CD’s and a mini CD that were released on an independent basis, Sylver Myst began looking for a label to represent them. Therefore, in January 2006 Sylver Myst signs a deal with the new American label Sirenette Music Industries. The band immediately entered the studio to record their first full-length album. The album was recorded at Excess Studios in Rotterdam, and was produced by the well-known and respected Hans Pieters.

The resulting album is called Emotions Revealed and includes thirteen songs, each representing important moments in a person’s lifetime. Life’s emotional moments like falling in love, getting divorced, or losing someone you love, are all expertly expressed in these tunes. The CD features a mature band that is not afraid to reveal it all, from ballads and progressive riffs, to acoustic solos and choruses.

Welcome to Sylver Myst’s world.

Lyrics

Lovtred

Written By: R. van Dijk

How afraid I was
When I smiled and said I do
And I waited to accept
‘cause I knew, I knew I didn’t love you

Love, the heart, committing crimes
Memories of sinful times
Dreaming of one silent kiss
‘cause with you the warmth I miss

Did you ever wonder why
When I left and said goodbye
For what else could I do
Loving her instead of you

Deep inside I knew
You were not the one for me
Drifting apart every day
If only you could see

Did you ever wonder why
When I left and said goodbye
For what else could I do
Loving her instead of you

Another woman in my life
Is what I was looking for
I wish I could explain this to you
Just once more

You’ll find another
To please you in your ways
A love to hold you tight
Until the end of days

Did you ever wonder why
When I left and said goodbye
For what else could I do
Loving her instead of you

My Valentine

Written By: D. Roumen

If you want to feel me
Come dance with me tonight
I saw you in my dream
Your spell holds me tight
My Valentine will be
The one who sets me free
But you don’t even know me

I just want to feel you
I touched your leg tonight
You just smiled and kissed me
Twice again this time
I felt so insecure and
Just tried to hold your hand
Again this time I stand alone

If I had the courage
To tell you how I feel
Then I can stop this dreaming
Maybe we will make it real
But I don’t know your feelings
So I don’t even try
Alone I stand and wonder
And let it all go white

I just want to feel you
I touched your cheek tonight
You just smiled and kissed me
Twice again this time
I felt so insecure and
Just tried to hold your hand
Again this time I stand alone
My Valentine

Escape From Reality

Written By: R. van Dijk

Now the end is near
This black hole inside of me
A teardrop is falling
To the bottom of my heart

I wonder how this happened
And why this is happening to me
Maybe some day somehow
I’ll understand it all

I want to run
I want to hide
Escape from reality

I want to cry
I want to die
Escape from reality

Now your end has come
A last word to you
You’re in my mind forever
And forever I’ll love you

I hope you’ll find rest and peace
Please let her spirit be free
I know that she is alive
In my own world

I want to run
I want to hide
Escape from reality

I want to cry
I want to die
Escape from reality
