An In-Depth Exploration of "Regret": A Symphony of Redemption

We extend a warm invitation to delve into the intricate layers of our musical composition, "Regret." As artists, we take pride in crafting narratives that transcend the boundaries of sound, resonating with the nuanced emotions that define the human experience. In this unveiling, we guide you through the thematic intricacies of "Regret," a song that explores the depths of internal conflict, remorse, and the relentless pursuit of redemption.

A Lingering Vision:

"Once more the vision haunts me, Yet this time my sight is gone." The recurring vision, bereft of sight, sets a contemplative stage. It introduces a narrative that transcends visual stimuli, delving into the unseen realms of inner conflict.

The Intricacies of Remorse:

"I feel it crawl beneath my skin, Borrowing deeper every day." This metaphorical crawl beneath the skin vividly depicts the insidious nature of regret—an emotional force that embeds itself with increasing intensity, delving into the core of our existence.

Erosion of Hope:

"My mind begins to fade, The memories start to slip away." The fading memories symbolize the erosion of hope, painting a poignant picture of the toll regret takes on one's mental landscape. It marks the onset of a desperate struggle against encroaching darkness.

Navigating Vulnerability:

"As all hope leaves, I become its prey." In the absence of hope, vulnerability emerges. The individual becomes prey to the relentless onslaught of regret, navigating a terrain devoid of optimism.

An Earnest Plea for Assistance:

"Help me see, Help me breathe, Help me move past this regret." The chorus emerges as an earnest plea, a yearning for solace and assistance in navigating the tumultuous waters of regret. The repetition underscores the urgency of the appeal.

Tender Moments of Connection:

"Hold me close, One last time, Even if you don’t believe." This tender plea for closeness, even in the face of disbelief, reveals a vulnerable moment—a desire for connection and understanding amid the weight of regret.

Navigating the Internal Landscape:

"I begged you, To stay another night, Cause I don’t trust the voices, To make it out this time." The plea to trust and stay illuminates the complexity of navigating internal voices, grappling with the fear that they might lead to a darker outcome.

Yearning for Release:

"You turned your back on me, Why can’t the night, Take my life." The pain of abandonment surfaces, accompanied by a desperate yearning for release from the burdensome emotions. The night becomes a metaphorical refuge, yet the plea remains unanswered.

Reflecting on Unintended Outcomes:

"What have I done, In the end, This wasn’t meant for me, You turned your back on me." The closing lines encapsulate a haunting reflection on the aftermath of actions, realizing that the outcome was not as intended. The repetition of being turned away signifies a profound sense of isolation and rejection.

"Regret" is a contemplative exploration of remorse that transcends the auditory realm, resonating with shared human experiences. As Bring Upon The Dawn, we invite you to join us on this emotional odyssey and express our gratitude for the privilege of sharing this poignant composition with you.


An In-depth Analysis of "Prison": Navigating the Depths of Existential Turmoil


Allow us to offer you a comprehensive exploration into the profound thematic intricacies embedded within "Prison," a composition by Bring Upon The Dawn. The song stands as an expressive testament to the internal struggles, existential despair, and emotional tumult that define the human experience.


The emphatic opening sentiment, "Fuck it," sets a tone of unfiltered emotional intensity, immediately drawing listeners into a narrative that grapples with the complexities of internal conflict. The imagery of being "Locked in sights, holding a loaded gun" vividly portrays a sense of impending danger and an ongoing battle at the precipice of control.


The poignant phrase "Here we are bleeding just to feel" encapsulates a poignant pursuit of sensation, even if it necessitates embracing pain. "Look away, I won't be back again" serves as a plea for solitude, suggesting a deliberate withdrawal from a world perceived as overwhelming and unforgiving.


The recurring refrain, "Here I am (Dead man), Say My Name (Dead man)," establishes a haunting mantra that echoes a struggle with identity and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. The rejection of societal expectations, encapsulated in the assertive declaration "I am no son of yours, Weak cunt," underscores a resolute individualism that resists conformity to external pressures.


The metaphorical representation of being "Locked away inside this cage" conveys the notion of mental and emotional confinement, while the references to a burning sensation and "cryptic games" allude to a psychological labyrinth, where reality becomes elusive and distorted.


"Spiraling away from what I see is real" poignantly suggests a detachment from perceived reality, indicating an existential journey that distances the self from the world. The lines "Pleasing everything, I caved to kill myself" depict a surrender to external pressures and a profound, self-destructive impulse.


Finally, the declaration that "Your presence is a threat" encapsulates a visceral reaction to external influences perceived as menacing, marking a poignant moment of confrontation against overwhelming external forces.


"Prison" transcends the realm of music to become an intimate revelation of collective struggles. It invites contemplation on the intricacies of the human psyche. We extend an invitation to our esteemed audience to join us in this profound exploration and reflection.


An In-Depth Exploration of "INITIUM".

As artists dedicated to the nuanced expression of emotion through sound, we provide a guided tour through the thematic depths and emotional landscapes embedded within the evocative lyrics of this contemplative piece.


Initiation through Surrender:

"Come, bury me, Now built on hollow ground." The opening entreaty embodies a profound surrender, a contemplative initiation into an indeterminate realm. The request to be buried resonates as a metaphorical release, signifying a desire to transcend earthly constraints and embrace an unknown expanse.


Navigating the Unseen Gaze:

"Lost in its stare, Left to fucking rot." The acknowledgment of being ensnared in an unyielding gaze introduces a theme of confrontation with the intangible. Our use of language seeks to evoke the intensity of emotional decay, where the individual is seemingly abandoned to the relentless scrutiny of unseen forces.


Chaos Amidst Liberation:

"Spiraling out of control, Break the fucking chains." The imagery of spiraling denotes a descent into emotional tumult, contrasted by the call to liberate oneself from binding constraints. This articulation of defiance echoes a yearning for emancipation from forces that seek to govern and restrain.


Internal Struggle Unveiled:

"Get it out of me, It lives inside my head." The urgent plea to expel an internal presence underscores an ongoing struggle. The repetition emphasizes the invasive nature of this internal conflict, alluding to a persistent force that has taken residence within the recesses of the psyche.

Allow us to take you on an exploratory journey into the intricate layers of "Death Roll," a composition that delves into the profound complexities within the human experience. Each lyric encapsulates shared struggles, an articulation of the battles encountered both externally and internally.


The directive to "Drown out the voices that haunt your mind" serves as a resolute call to transcend the internal tumult, challenging us to dismantle barriers, be they personal or societal in nature.


In the symbolism of finding "peace in the crown of thorns," we impart the transformative nature of our collective evolution—forged through judgment's crucible and refined in the crucible of life's adversities.

As a musical entity, we have confronted attempts at division and manipulation, and the resounding declaration, "We will tear down every wall," signifies our collective commitment to unity against shared societal struggles.


The acknowledgment of external attempts to "divide us" and "blind us" is met with unwavering resolve—"I will find a way back out, haunt them in their sleep." This vow represents a commitment to confront those who seek to obscure reality and bring the unadulterated truth to light.


"I'll keep marching forward till my final breath" encapsulates an unyielding dedication to progression. The directive to "rise up" against falsehoods serves as an anthem, imploring us all to eschew deceptive narratives and embrace an unfiltered authenticity. "Start the death roll" is symbolic, signifying a departure from inauthenticity's and a commitment to living life authentically.

Unveiling the Depths of Desolation: A Journey through "Odium"


Today, we invite you to navigate the emotional labyrinth of "Odium," a composition by Bring Upon The Dawn that delves into the haunting themes of hate, betrayal, and the enduring echoes of a tormented past. Join us as we unravel the lyrical tapestry that encapsulates the visceral emotions and profound narrative woven into this intense musical piece.


Burning Earth and the Cry for Salvation:

"Burn this earth, Save me from this hate I feel, Wake me from this sleep." The opening lines set a potent tone, invoking a cry for salvation amidst the embers of a burning world. The plea to be awakened from a deep slumber suggests an urgent desire to escape the clutches of a numbing existence.


Hidden Heart and Veiled Comfort:

"I hide this heart, Behind the walls I built, Comfort behind the veil, Haunted by stories I cannot tell." The imagery of a hidden heart and fortified walls suggests a profound emotional fortress, shielding the bearer from the world. The comfort found behind a veil is juxtaposed with haunting, untold stories, painting a picture of concealed wounds.


The Silence of Truth and the Burden of Love:

"You cannot speak the truth, For he will come for you, I cannot face the truth, Of a love I once knew." The imposed silence on truth speaks of a menacing presence, a force that prohibits the revelation of painful realities. The reluctance to face a once-known love suggests a profound betrayal or loss that weighs heavily on the soul.


Unravelling the Father's Sin:

"Father why did you do it, I was only just a boy, Who learnt to be a man, Bonded by blood yet, I am not you, I am more than this name." The raw and accusatory questioning of a father's actions reveals a narrative of betrayal and shattered innocence. The struggle to break free from a name and identity tainted by the sins of a paternal figure adds a layer of personal evolution and defiance.


Crushed by Forces Beyond:

"Crushed by the words of a god, Crushed by the hands of my father, Crushed by the weight of the world, Crushed by the Love of another." The recurring theme of being crushed symbolizes the weight of external forces—be it religious doctrines, paternal hands, societal burdens, or the complexities of love. Each element becomes an oppressive force, leaving the individual battered and broken.


The Lingering Haunt of the Past:

"Haunted by the wounds of the past, Haunted by the words you said, Haunted by the wounds of the past, Haunted by the dream of gutting, You Like a fucking pig." The persistent haunting by wounds and words underscores the enduring impact of the past. The graphic imagery of gutting reflects a seething rage, a desire for retribution against the source of profound suffering.


The Blame Game and Self-Hatred:

"I blamed myself, I hated you, I blamed myself, For what you did to me." The admission of self-blame and hatred unveils the internal struggle with guilt and the enduring trauma inflicted by another. The complex interplay of blame and self-loathing adds layers to the narrative of internal conflict.


In conclusion, "Odium" emerges as a poignant exploration of pain, betrayal, and the enduring struggle for self-identity in the aftermath of trauma. Bring Upon The Dawn invites listeners to traverse these emotional landscapes and confront the depths of desolation through their powerful musical storytelling
