Biography

Syndrome8 is the culmination of years of creativity, dedication, and hard work brought together by the merger of 2 musicians with one common passion- the love for their music.
While working separately with different rock bands on the scene, Paul and Jeff knew something was missing but didnt realize exactly what it was until they met each other in 2002. They began laying the foundation for what would, over time, become a powerful and commanding assault of heavy riffs and songs that demanded attention. They immediately knew they were onto something.
Paul and Jeff worked hard for over a year polishing their writing style and playing. As a team, they arrange, compose and produce dark and heavy music, while always playing to the song.
Jeffs crushing brutal attack and absolute passion behind the drums fuels a fire that pushes the groove and sound of Syndrome8. Watching him play is comparable to that of a controlled and talented madman. Jeffs also responsible for helping arrange all of Syndrome8s music, and being the foundation for which the band is built.
Pauls song writing and style defines Syndrome8. Responsible for all of the music, he plays from his soul. Never compromising to himself, he pushes to be original, creative and the best player he can be. I write what my soul says. Striving in both songwriting and soloing, he is an accomplished player on and off the stage.
Things unfortunately took a detour when their original bass player left the band. After a brief interlude, Joey joined the group bringing years of experience and new life to the band. The band knew he was a perfect fit.
With new songs like Misery, Broken, Leave Me Be, and Shovel to the Stones, Syndrome8 continues to evolve as a band by exploring different arrangements, time signatures, and melodic depth, while maintaining their signature hard-rock sound. Influenced by a broad spectrum of artists including Alice In Chains, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Black Label Society, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath, Syndrome8 is a dynamic combination of intensity, emotion, and truth. Their music is their voice.

Lyrics

Trapped

Written By: SYNDROME 8 Lyrics by Alex Allias

I feel the surging pain
When you are mad at me
Make it go away... go away
It's always the same old dream
Your evil's taunting me
Stop tormenting me
Why don't you go away

Somewhere deep inside
Your shadows block the light
And you laugh at me
Pulling my puppet strings

I try to break away from the strings
I can't escape trapt inside your mind
I got to break away from the strings cause
I can't be free trapt inside your mind

I taste the misery
You've been feeding me
The impurity
The poisoning
This has got to change
You've been controlling me
Why don't you go away
I'll never go away

I've got to realize
It's me that rules my life
I've got to end this torturing
And break these puppet strings

This is killing me slow
Your toxins contaminate
These pills are had to swallow
Why don't you just go away

Falling Down

Written By: SYNDROME 8 Lyrics by Alex Allias

Inside your mind you feel the fire
That drives you dreams from deep inside
The road it winds, it's not an easy ride
And every day is another fight

You've been tryin
You've been fighting everyday
Just to keep the fuel inside the fire
And just when things start to go your way
You find the road is littered with tripwire

It's the price you pay
You stumble then you fall
With evey chance you take
You stumble then you fall
You got to get up again

Falling down, falling down, yeah we're falling down, falling down again oh yeah
Falling down, falling down, yeah we're falling down, falling down again

The bruises show one at a time
From this battle deep inside your mind
The easy thing would be to get up and run
But you've come to far to be undone

You keep fighting, you keep trying everyday
Because you won't be denied
Eventhough you've tasted the pain
And you know it won't be the last time

It's the price you pay
You stumble then you fall
With every chance you take
You stumble then you fall
You got to get up again

Falling down, falling down, yeah we're falling down, falling down again oh yeah
Falling down, falling down, yeah we're falling down, falling down again

It's the price you pay
You stumble then you fall
With every dream you make
You stumble then you fall
Sometimes it's the only way

The Line

Written By: SYNDROME 8 Lyrics by Alex Allias

I've been bruised I've been broken it's just another day
Another day within the fire
Sometimes anger opens the flood gate into your veins
And you feel the venom build inside
It burns your soul alive

Why did you think you could push me around again
Throw gasoline into the fire
I've tried to ignore all those fucked up things you said
If you want me bring it to the line
Come on. Bring it to the line

You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down Yeah...

I can feel the heart beat inside your hollow chest
While the sweat burns your eyes
I smell intoxication on your breath
If you want to see my demon come alive
Come on. Bring it to the line

You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down Yeah...

You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down
You're not gonna bring me...down...down Yeah...
