Biography

The Gemini Ritual began as an idea 7 years ago in a basement in Toronto, Canada. an idea that developed over the next 7 years into what you hear today, a blend of anal;ogue and digital production in the form of industrial rock. Cut from the same cloth as artists such as Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson, this artist has already had considerable success with the first release from TGR called HEROIN.

After relocating to the USA 4 years ago, Heroin, the 2006 debut release for The Gemini Ritual, after 6 years of work put TGR on the map after only 2 months of it's release winning Industrial Rock single of the year from iacmusic.com for the track HEROINE [suicide].

November 9th 2006, The Gemini Ritual won 2 awards at the Los Angeles Music Awards, Best Industrial Artist of 2006, and Heroin won Best Industrial Album of 2006.

The next stage of The Gemini Ritual's progression is the highly controversial and anticipated second full length release entitled God Syndrome which has already begun to stir up some highly energized feedback. With tracks like HOLLOW, BLEED LIKE NO OTHER and others, this release shows a progression of great magnitude in writing and composition for Raval, the founder and writer of The Gemini Ritual.

Lyrics

Sometimes I...

Written By: raval, twitch

Pull off this mask of failure
all the cuts and the scars become clearer
as I stand and I bleed before me
watching myself decay
Watching myself decay

With all these empty feelings,
I can only caress what is healing.
Dried up and without my memories
watching myself betray.

Sometimes I...
get lost inside my head
Sometimes I...
think I'm falling to the end.

All this temptation that I'm feeling,
6 degrees of confusion within me.
Hearing sounds unfamiliar to my ears
flash point pain burns insode of me.
Taking one more step into memories,
watching myself decay.

Sometimes I...
get lost inside my head
Sometimes I...
think I'm falling to the end.

Sometimes I...
get lost inside my head
Sometimes I...
think I'm falling to the end.

sometimes I think I'm closer,
sometimes I'm falling in.
Sometimes I'm breathing faster,
I'm paying for my sins.

Sometimes I'm falling deeper,
sometimes it tears my skin.
Sometimes I'm seeing clearer,
the walls are closing in.

Heroine [suicide]

Written By: RaVaL

I don't need your sympathy,
cause I'm just fine, and I'll be just fine.

And I don't need your help, just save me one more time.
Please my friend, please my friend.

And I don't want your faith,
just leave it by the door next to the place where I used to be.

And I don't want your hate,
it leaves a bitter taste inside of me.
Now leave me be.

You are my Heroine
Feels just like Heroin
Tastes like Heroin
Give me my Heroine

You are my Heroine
Feels just like Heroin
Tastes like Heroin
Give me my Heroine

I can't find my way,
please shine a light for me, inject it all inside until I see.

And I don't want to fall,
or have to lose it all when my whole world comes crumbling down.

You are my Heroine
Feels just like Heroin
Tastes like Heroin
Give me my Heroine

You are my Heroine
Feels just like Heroin
Tastes like Heroin
Give me my Heroine
