Rift Valley

Get Flash to see this player.

This is track 3 from "adrift". "adrift" is the late December 2009 release by euphoreador. It continues the dark and ominous music that euphoreador has been doing but in uniquely distinct ways. “adrift” delves into the subjects of reproduction, fallibility, dna, hope and of course life. “adrift” has many melody lines played with a myriad of instruments and some of the songs are heavy riffing guitars to others that are of a middle Eastern flare. Come “adrift” with euphoreador.

Rift Valley

You come back to me sans subterfuge
As deluge clings to parched desert sands
It’s way too much and too fast
Aghast the rivers flashed flood
And the waters are 33 grasping hands deep
To have and to keep
To hold and to know

To bring down the pomp and glamour
And burn change the three ring show
With the big top all aglow
The Circus Maximus is the poignant kiss
Well what’s become of
Stuttered to no avail and the mast and sail
Inflates as billow we fall upon the pillow of grass
Me and this fallible lass
With up skirt and down dress
With arched curves we confess
We’re omnivoric whores
We’re human stars amongst scores
We’re gluttonous fasters
We’re servants and we’re masters
We’re healed sores gaping fresh anew
Like whatever plasters the sobered glue
Of red white deepest black and blue
Oh fuck the onslaught slew the spirit flew
Just to test its wings and rally
Despite hoops and flaming rings
The human heart it sings

Cool imagery in the lyrics. Introspective though, and it keeps the listener guessing. The picked guitar part is interesting, and plays nicely with the synth tones chosen. All the parts are sitting nicely in the mix. The vocs might need to come up a little for my ears.

Oh so nice!
I am especially taken with your guitar parts. I do however think your vocal is too far back and a bit too wet. Good job!

euphoreador combines many styles and instruments as well as uses poetic soundscapes and aural illusions to create something at least unique and thought provoking. The music has sometimes industrial elements with hammered dulcimer or spoken word with ... [see more]
