Biography

TEARS OF HEL - A JOURNEY, A BIO

It can be somewhat hard to explain what kind of music TEARS OF HEL makes. Heavily rooted in rock, the band never limits itself to specific genres, and musically explores a lot while remaining radio-friendly as much as possible in the process.

For what we are sure of, ToH was brought together by two near-Montreal born and longtime friends Alexandre Boismenu and Dominic Lamarre - once both in the now-dead band HAPPIER THAN YOU, who recorded more than 300 songs - plus the soundtrack for the indie-film 'DECADENCE PSYCHOTIQUE', during their short existence, which is only a part of the experience they have now.

Now what exactly inspires a band like TEARS OF HEL? Bands like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles and Alice in chains of course, but it goes way beyond that, being hardcore fan of lesser-known (but amazingly good) Self, Akira Yamaoka, The Residents, Abandonned pools, Emilie Simon and much, much more...

What's the experience behind TEARS OF HEL you ask? As mentioned before, they were both in the highly prolific HAPPIER THAN YOU, but Alexandre formed and fronted Rusty Chains, Karma Crisis, and even played in Japan as well.

Dominic was also very active. Aside from HTY, he created a solo/not-so-solo project SUPERMASSIVE QUAzAR, which turned out to be played around the world (and also available at a very resonable price on amazon.com, CDBABY and ITUNES, and even on Yahoo Music Japan) and got himself a few of Publishing deals.

So imagine all this experience brought together as a single band, an entity ready to rip your fucking soul apart and spit down your throat and piss on your sofa while you're watching.

Experience? Experience????? I'll give you experience motherfucker!!!

TEARS OF HEL, while enjoying being a live band, spends a lot of time in studio and gets involved in everything ToH (after all, Alex is a distinguished graduate of the reknowned Trebas institute), from recording music to making videos (Dominic has also a lenghty past in cinema, including a cool feature-lenght film called 'CRESCENDO') to being very active online (they have a nice following on sites like amiestreet.com and on their own site www.tearsofhel.com, which they use frequently and have a great relation with their fans - including spoiling them rotten, flooding them with new material and getting them involved with the band).

On the verge of putting out an EP ('A CALL FOR THE COLONEL - EP' - which includes an impressive Live version of their cool song 'SHUT THE FCK UP' and the great studio version of 'MISTER JUNK MOLO', among other great titles), TEARS OF HEL's desire is to get in studio, make a great album, hit the road and conquer the world, simply put.

Remember though, all in all, TEARS OF HEL sounds different... but in a familiar way.

Lyrics

MISTER JUNK MOLO

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

YOU CAN HIDE THE WAY YOU ARE...
YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO BEGIN...
BUT YOU KNOW WHERE TO START...
YOU ARE THE MISTRESS OF SIN...
FROM WHICH I CAN’T SEEM TO PART...
YOU ARE THE DISTRESS IN ME...
TO CONFESS THAT...

THAT I’M SO LONELY NOW...
THAT YOU LEFT ME TO DIE...
(AND) I’M SO LONELY NOW...
I FEEL SO LOST INSIDE...

YOU CAN HIDE THE WAY YOU ARE...
YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO BEGIN...
BUT YOU KNOW WHERE TO START...
YOU ARE THE MISTRESS OF SIN...
FROM WHICH I CAN’T SEEM TO PART...
YOU ARE THE DISTRESS IN ME...
TO CONFESS THAT...

THAT I’M SO LONELY NOW...
THAT YOU LEFT ME TO DIE...
(AND) I’M SO LONELY NOW...
I FEEL SO DRY INSIDE...

HIGH... LIE...
DIE... LIES...

DON'T ASK ME WHY

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

TOO MANY TIMES...
MY TEARS HAVE DRIED...
INSIDE MY PRIDE...
LEAVE EVERYTHING BEHIND...
APOLOGIZE...
FOR ALL THE LIES...
REMEMBER WHAT YOU FIND...

DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I RESIST MY LIFE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I PRETEND I’M FINE...

TOO MANY SIGNS...
I WANNA HIDE...
BEING DENIED...
LEAVE EVERYTHING INSIDE...
APOLOGIZE...
FOR ALL THE LIES...
FORGIVE ME I AM BLIND...

DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I RESIST MY LIFE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I PRETEND I’M FINE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...

DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I RESIST MY LIFE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I RESIST MY LIFE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
I PRETEND I’M FINE...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...
DON’T ASK ME WHY...

DAWN OF DEATH

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

CLOSE YOUR EYES... AND WHISPER IN MY EARS...
AND I’M STILL TRYING... TO CONQUER ALL MY FEARS...
TO EASE MY MIND... AND SOLVE A MYSTERY...
SO I’VE BEEN TRYING... TO LIVE MY MISERY...
BUT I’M FEELING LESS THAN I SHOULD...
FOREVER...

I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!
CAN’T SAVE ME... I’M OUT OF LINE!
I CAN’T BREATHE... I’M OUT OF LUCK!

FROM 9 TO 5... OR PRISON TILL I DIE...
TO CHOOSE YOUR LIFE... AND NEVER LOOK BEHIND...
SO I CAN FIND... A REASON TO GO ON...
TO EASE MY MIND... THIS BATTLE CAN’T BE WON...
AND I’M FEELING LESS EVERYDAY...
FOREVER...

I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!
CAN’T SAVE ME... I’M OUT OF LINE!
I CAN’T BREATHE... I’M OUT OF LUCK!

FROM 9 TO 5... MY PRISON TILL I DIE...
AND LOSE YOUR LIFE... AND NEVER LOOK BEHIND...
SO I CAN FIND... A REASON TO GO ON...
TO EASE MY MIND... THIS BATTLE CAN’T BE WON...
AND I’M FEELING LESS EVERYDAY...
FOREVER...

I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!
CAN’T SAVE ME... I’M OUT OF LINE!
I CAN’T BREATHE... I’M OUT OF LUCK!
I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!
CAN’T SAVE ME... I’M OUT OF LINE!
I CAN’T BREATHE... I’M OUT OF LUCK!

I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!
I CAN’T SLEEP... I’M OUT OF TIME!

THE SONG THAT SHALL NEVER BE NAMED

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

JOHNNY’S GOT A GUN AGAINST HIS FOREHEAD...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
TONY STEPPED UNDER THE LADDER OF HELL...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

WILBUR’S BROKEN CAR JUST CANNOT BE REPAIRED...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
CARLOS’ SAUSSAGES DELICIOUS IN THE SHADE...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

AND I SEE THEM LIGHTS...
AND I SEE THEM...

SUZIE DREWBAR LEFT HER KEYS INSIDE OF A CAR...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
CALVIN’S LAST WORDS WERE « HEY SOMEBODY REALLY STINKS!»
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

TIMMY LOST HIS TWO EYES, HE WAS HIT BY A BUCK...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
BURT IS REALLY LOST INSIDE THE WOODS OF BINTOK...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

AND I SEE THEM LIGHTS...
AND I SEE THEM...

OH… SO NICE... OH... SO BRIGHT...

MRS. PINKLE DROVE HER STICK IN HER BROKEN TOES...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
PROFESSOR MCDOUGAL’S EXPERIMENTS EXPLODES...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

STEVEN’S BODY PARTS ARE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...
AND OF COURSE OUR DEAR BAGOO KNOCKED OUT BY A TREE...
EVERYTHING’S FINE... EVERYTHING’S FINE...

AND I SEE THEM LIGHTS...
AND I SEE THEM...

OH… SO NICE... OH... SO BRIGHT...

STUCK A 130$

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

STUCK AT 130$

WELL I’M STUCK...
AT 130 BUCKS...
AND I’M OUT OF LUCK...

I’M STUCK...
AT HUNDRED THIRTY BUCKS...
AND MAYBE I JUST SUCK...

IT’S TRUE...
I WONDER WHAT I HAVE TO DO...
MY PARTS ARE IN A BOWL OF GLUE...
AND I’M FEELING LIKE A PROSTITUTE...

WHO’S NOT GETTING PAID!

‘CAUSE I’M STUCK...
I’VE BEEN STUCK FOR TWELVE WHOLE DAYS...
AND DON’T TELL ME THAT’S NOT THE CASE...

I’VE BEEN STUCK FOR TWELVE WHOLE DAYS...
‘CAUSE THE MONEY PARTS DON’T EVER RAISE...
AND DON’T TELL ME THAT’S NOT THE CASE...
I AM RUNNING BACKWARDS IN A CHASE...

AND THAT BEING SAID...

I WANNA GO...
IN STUDIO...
I WANNA GO...
IN STUDIO...

GOOD BYE - LIVE @ TROY'S

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

GOOD BYE

I WOKE UP ONE DAY AND MY LIFE WAS BEHIND...
AND EVERY SECRETS I HAD ARE BURIED INSIDE...
I LOCKED ALL MY DREAMS IN A JAR AND PUT IT ASIDE...
THE EXPIRATION DATE IS TONIGHT...

GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...

I CARRIED MY CROSS TO YOU BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH...
AND EVERY PROMISES MADE WERE ONLY BLUFF...

GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...

AND EVERY CREATION IS MADE TO BE DESTROYED...
AND ALL THE LIGHT IS FADING INTO THE VOID...

GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...

AND ALL THAT IS LEFT IS ASHES INSIDE A SKULL...
NOT LONG AFTER, ALL IS LEFT, IS NOTHING AT ALL...

GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...
GOOD BYE...

A CALL FOR THE COLONEL

Written By: TEARS OF HEL

A CALL FOR THE COLONEL

EVERYONE IS THE SAME...
WAITING IN LINE...
(I) THINK THAT I'M INSANE...
AND GOING BLIND...
AWAITING FOR THE DAY...
SHOW ME INSIDE...

SHOW ME INSIDE...

COME RESCUE ME / LEAVE ME TO DIE...
WHEN ALL THE STARS ARE UNDERGROUND...
I WON'T BE NEAR WHEN YOU COME BY...
THE CITY SCREAMS WITHOUT A SOUND...

EVERYONE IS THE SAME...
WAITING IN LINE...
(I) THINK THAT I'M INSANE...
AND GOING BLIND...
AWAITING FOR THE DAY...
SHOW ME INSIDE...

SHOW ME INSIDE...

I'M MAKING, I'M MAKING...
A CALL FOR THE COLONEL...
I'M MAKING, I'M MAKING...
A CALL FOR THE COLONEL...
