about

Absolution Denied Antioquia, Colombia

ABSOLUTION DENIED presenta su nuevo álbum. Lograr consolidar un sonido que proviene de personas tan distintas lleva tiempo. Negociación. Respiración.

Es metal colombiano, metal del tercer mundo. ... more

Track Name: Icons
Icons

How does it feel to be a fool?
Believing lies of those who wash your brain?
Can they give us a peaceful life?
Why that desire to make new idols?

(Chorus)
Unbroken wolves
Made propaganda

Outcasts build a shrine to worship them
The world is bleeding, holding hands

They feed on you
Are they your icons?

They pay you giving speeches
with promises undefined
But you give yourself away
These spheres blind your inside
(Your hollow inside)

There are many impostors
Growing there

People seal their absence giving their vows
Once you make your choice, there’s no coming back

They count on your weakness
You trust in a lost cause
Those living portraits resize your pockets
You’re their bitch
And so you call ‘em insignia

(Chorus)
Unbroken wolves
Made propaganda

Outcasts build a shrine to worship them
The world is bleeding, holding hands

They feed on you
Are they your icons?

Feel society in shadows
Mankind is dying
Oh God, this is real
Can you wake from this dream?

Perfect devices
That thing for you
Turning back to the fallen man

They pay you giving speeches
with promises undefined
But You give yourself away

People seal their absence giving their vows
Once you make your choice there’s no coming back

They count on your weakness
You trust in a lost cause
Those living portraits resize your pockets
You’re their bitch
And they’re your insignia
Track Name: Dignidad Desecha
Dignidad Desecha

Amor
Frágil y sutil sensación
Desecho en tu mísero corazón
Manifiesto de ingratitud perpetua

Esperando por una estable claridad
Escarnecido amor por una inicua relación

Harto de mí
Estoy harto de ti
Una vez más
Perdí la fe
Palabras impías brotan de tu ser

Verás tu vanidad
Forjar tu aflicción

Mi llanto se cristalizó
Por el odio en tu interior

Traté de exorcizar tu promiscua razón
Pero exhumaste todo perdón
Track Name: When Death Calls
When Death Calls

He saw the world black and narrow
With nature’s wrath in his life

The angel of death touched his flesh
He never had a choice to be free

40 years of sickness
Passed by lovely words from his lips

He believed in a new day
But not the morning sun that saw him die

He embraced the pain
As many haven’t done

There he found the strength to release to his final destination
His last words were printed on tears he shed on the ground

Chorus

Darkness in moments of clarity
Voices in our awareness
When his spirit rises among us

Courage!
Supremacy condition
Holiness shining
As we’re bleeding now for deadly things

Punished by people’s negligence
They stole his vitality.

He never gave up
He never resigned
Without a fight

Sourness tried to blind his soul
But he rolled the dice once again
He never gave up
He never resigned
Without a fight

He embraced the pain
As many haven’t done

There he found the strength to release to his final destination
His last words were printed on tears he shed on the ground

Chorus

Darkness in moments of clarity
Voices in our awareness
When his spirit rises among us

Courage!
Supremacy condition
Holiness shining
As we’re bleeding now for deadly things
Track Name: Flashbacks of a Soundless Place
Flashbacks of a soundless place

This world is just an incubated mirage
I've been walking on a strange reality
I've seen blood of my blood dead,
I've seen flesh of my flesh dead,
Everything that I loved has perished,
Now are just remains, ashes and dust

The deepest dream awaits for us
At the end the world comes black
when everything dies!

(pre-chorus)

So cold the world around
Our tearful memories can't rest in peace
We can't accept the magnificent reality
Nothing lasts forever.

(Chorus)

A mankind blinded and lost
Believing false beliefs for decades of despair
Much fears, no remorse, no alternative
Is the end of the game?
It’s the cycle of life that seals of fate

Moral slaves create rites and norms
But we love these lies everyday
We're the kings of materialism
I've seen blood of my blood dead,
Everything that I loved has perished,
Now are just ashes and dust
Your eyes reflect reality

(Chorus)

A mankind blinded and lost
Believing false beliefs for decades of despair
Much fears, no remorse, no alternative
Is the end of the game?
It’s the cycle of life that seals of fate

All this time following lies for those who writes our destiny
Drowned in a blinded path
Watching our children in wrong purposes
You fight for them
But you cannot see
The evil of our nature
Still marching on…

(Chorus)

A mankind blinded and lost
Believing false beliefs for decades of despair
Much fears, no remorse, no alternative
Is the end of the game?
It’s the cycle of life that seals of fate

Is the end of the game?
Track Name: Illusions Decay
Illusions Decay

The trip of my life
Is coming to an end
The war in me has conquered my will
I’m feeling dead in life
Tired to walk the world
These prickly remains won’t be slaves again

Chorus

There’s nothing to lose
This Life is short
When future and hope intertwine
I don’t care for your frantic words
All hope is gone for me

Time bomb is ticking
Sucking the root of pain

Steelers, Beggars, Sinners
Broadcast this homicide
All love I felt goes down
See as the candle fades in a hollow plate

You cannot stop this fate
All thoughts swim in bullshit
We bleed in the darkest hour

Stop praying on your knees
Don’t beg me anymore
Take your laments away from me

Chorus

There’s nothing to lose
This Life is short
When Future and hope intertwine
I don’t care for your frantic words
All hope is gone for me

You cannot stop this fate
All thoughts swim in bullshit
We bleed in the darkest hour

Steelers, Beggars, Sinners
Broadcast this homicide
All love I felt goes down
See as the candle fades in a hollow plate.
Track Name: Project Black Mind
Project Black Mind

Purified caste into this pestilent world
Project black mind
Supremacy our kind

Neither frontiers nor emotional scars

We are more than heroes
We don’t save weak beings

Our convictions inspired by cardinal sins of mankind
Seduces us, morphing us, into an episode never told

(Chorus)

Leaders of oblivion
Behind the numbing existence

The vanity
Our brand Seduction
Enlighten the future now

Coldness behavior
Flows in our name
Breaking threats that many fear

Craving for the unknown resides in our taste
As sacred secrets grow with our pride

Ancient rules will be rewritten by steel blades
In spheres of sovereignty

Every deep slumber will be deleted
When men profess our creed

(Chorus)

Leaders of oblivion
Behind the numbing existence

The vanity
Our brand Seduction
Staring our judgment rise

Under burning bridges
Sheltered nations will burn

So all of them blind
Will keep walking in a swarm

Purified caste into this pestilent world
Project black mind
Supremacy our kind

Neither frontiers nor emotional scars

We are more than heroes
We don’t save weak beings

Ancient rules will be rewritten by steel blades
In spheres of sovereignty

Every deep slumber will be deleted
When men profess our creed

(Chorus)

Leaders of oblivion
Behind the numbing existence

The vanity
Our brand Seduction
Enlighten the future now

We hear the call of inhumanity
The nemesis in our blood

From all this essence
Unleashed by our ghouls
Enlighten the future now.
Track Name: Absolucion
Absolucion

Si crees en la razón más que en tu convicción
No pretendas que el mundo se torne rosa
Porque la vida se irá proclamando
Despierta, levanta ya, tu cara contra el mundo
¿Dónde están tus agallas? ¿de qué están hechas tus entrañas?
Déjame ser testigo ésta vez, de toda tu banalidad.

Recoge lo que quede en tu interior
Lo único que queda…

Respira la verdad
Única intimidad con la realidad
Si quieres huir
Escapar sin sufrir
Las cadenas se fundirán con tus venas

Mírame! No creo en tus palabras
Muéstrame! La verdad de tu mirada
Esta vez! Tal vez rompa tu cara
y así obtendrás tu absolución
Tú absolución!
