Biography

YEAR OF CONFESSION, a 4 piece band from Long Island NY, writes heavy music with a stunning mix of melody and intelligence. Their intense and gripping live show (captured in the March 07' issue of REVOLVER MAGAZINE), coupled with lyrics that express hard times and inspiration, will leave a lasting impression. "YOC" is a band that works hard and stays on track, despite being faced with endless and surreal situations. Well described as a unique brand of metal, and rock, delivered with a hardcore attitude.

This band was originally started in 2003. Further developed in 2004 with the release of their DIY 4 song "Lightbulb" demo, and line up that included High school friend Steve Simari on drums. Their self produced and recorded "Cycles Of Man" EP and Internet single "We Will Overcome", have since been released after recruiting friend & musician Brian Calhoun as a new drummer. The "Cycles Of Man" EP went on to sell hundreds of copies from just their home town and "We Will Overcome" recieved thousands of downloads. Now they are on the verge of releasing another collection of music (A Blood Decree) which showcases their refined writing ability, as well as their strife. A Self Titled Demo has been released with 3 tracks (A Blood Decree, Bring Me Back, & Lucid) from this recording. Their influences include a wide range of artists such as; Faith No More, Slayer, Pantera, Candiria, Dream Theatre, Tool, Blood Has Been Shed, Iron Maiden, A Perfect Circle, Testament, Led-Zeppelin, Isis, and The Beatles.

Lyrics

Bring Me Back

Written By: Year of Confession

I've lost my drive,
self deprivation.
Beauty I've seen only in dream,
and I can no longer close my eyes.

I bite my tongue as I spied an image tried and true.
A ray of hope has cleared my clouded eyes.
You called my name, reached in and ripped out my despair.
Shedding light on shadows, cold and dank.

You called my name and I...

This ray of hope,
Has cleared my eyes.
You called my name,
I heard you say...

"We fall. We all fall.
Just take my hand,
and stand up again"

I bite my tongue as I spied an image tried and true.
A ray of hope has cleared my clouded eyes.

This ray of hope,
has cleared my eyes.
You called my name,
and I heard you say...

"We fall. We all fall.
Just take my hand,
and stand up again"

A Blood Decree

Written By: Year of Confession

Awakened by the sound,
this moment seems to last an eternity.
time slows down,
and my love won't respond to my frantic cries.

Draw your weapon,
eyes of steel and a heart of coal,
a big mistake.
Horrid truths, tasteful likes,
turning heads they'll realize,
you're a fake.
Pseudo hero, tuck your tail, turn tide,
and run away.

I lose my breath as innocence runs down her chest,
she looks at me with eyes so full of fear.
Time goes and I pray to God that you don't die,
for you're my inspiration to go on.

Draw your weapon,
eyes of steel and a heart of coal,
a big mistake.
Pseudo hero, tuck your tail, turn tide,
and run away.

I lose my breath as innocence runs down her chest,
she looks at me with eyes so full of fear.
Time goes and I pray to God that you don't die,
for you're my inspiration to go on.

Now you'll face my wrath,
my vengeance a will too strong.
A love, a vindication, one moment just to shed your blood.
Shed, Your, Blood.

I lose my breath as innocence runs down her chest,
she looks at me with eyes so full of fear.
Time goes and I pray to God that you don't die,
for you're my inspiration to go on.

I lose my breath as innocence runs down her chest,
she looks at me with eyes so full of fear.
I close my eyes and thank the Lord that you survived,
the beating of our hearts is now in time.

The world can rest now that you're not gone.

Lucid

Written By: Year Of Confession

Is this fate or illusion?
A call of the mark? A rung of the spine?
A blind man's vision, unseen yet knowing.
forbidden sight.

Abscess forming, infection decays what we strive to fulfill, hopes and dreams.
Claw the growth out, to begin anew we refresh the seal.
Slash and burn.
Now divided. One to his own but soon all shall find the call still yearns.

Two hands in bind, forming a whole they become the solution.
Souls they intertwine, forming a new hope which may lead to suffering...

Hopes fail. Dreams fail. Life fails. We've failed.

Two hands in bind, forming a whole they become the solution.
Souls they intertwine, forming a new hope which may lead to suffering...

Now divided. One to his own but soon all shall find the call still yearns.
