Through The Eyes Of The Dead Discusses "Skepsis" Concept and Story, Posts Lyrics Online

Through The Eyes of the Dead made a blog post discussing the concept and story behind their new album, "Skepsis," as well as posting all of the lyrics. Here's what they had to say about the concept of "Skepsis:"

"The story is a first person view through the main character who has a strong, skeptical view on humanity and reality. He believes that this reality is a mere illusion, and that there are celestial / spiritual forces at work that control this world, and the human race. He has a re-occurring dream of the nearing apocalypse, and inevitable damnation of mankind. The dream starts to drive him towards extreme paranoia, so he begins to search for answers to his odd suspicion. He then becomes channeled by an omen that gives him a vision of the underworld, and how it is the final destiny for the human race. He becomes maniacal at this point and communicates with the omen, pleading for his fate to be spared and that he may be granted the privilege to become a spiritual force like the omen. He returns from the vision....psychotic, believing that the omen granted him the power to take human lives, so that his can be spared. He loses all consciousness, and morals, and begins to start taking lives uncontrollably, and drinking himself to death. He is void of sanity at this point, possessed by an evil, supernatural force that is killing him with haste. 'The omen' makes him commit suicide and he descents into hell. He awakes in a white room; confused at first, thinking it was just another dream.... only to realize the room is empty, with no exit. He is in his own personal hell for eternity."

Hell yeah, "Skepsis" was an awesome record. "Defaced Reality" is probably my favorite track so far on the entire album. I'm seeing them live on Monday night and I'm pretty goddamn stoked

I just bought the album, and I'm quite impressed with what I've heard so far. The album is a step back from Malice, and a step forward at the same time (both in a very good way). I'm glad to see they've retained a lot of the classic TTEOTD flavor, and the brutal vocal style that Nate brought to Malice, but with a much more vocally flexable new frontman. Also, the fact that it's a concept album adds to the greatness of the album in my eyes. Great album, and I'm very happy about this direction the band is taking.

Все доброгог здравия!

Ребята, устал искать нормального хостера. Сейчас хостюсь, ммм, не буду показывать пальцем, выбрал недорогой хостинг оно мне и поделом, как говорится скупой платит дважды - оно так и есть!

Посоветуйте, кто что использует и кто что предпочитает так сказать, пожалуйста, опишите так же плюсы если это Вас не затруднит :)

PS - спасибо! Буду рад любым комментариям в выборе хостинга.

awesome album! and awesome band!.....I agree that defaced reality is probably the best song on the album. It is so sick!! p.s. I like the new vocalist and all but does anybody think this band is starting to sound more and more like the black dahlia murder vocally and musically?

They dont sound anything like the black dahlia murder especially now that they have ryan knight they are way more technical but they are still both amazing bands so i dont think it would be that bad a thing if they did sound similar
