Description
Tom from Bent_Axis again has showed his kindness by sending me some more drum loops from which this song was conceived.

http://bentaxis.bandcamp.com/

Made with only the left ear.

The words are from William Blake.

Tom plays the bass, and added some extra percussion and keys.

A big thanks to Steve _ Carbon for his friendship and ears. Fred _ Loob for his ears too and to Tom for his excellent bass playing and other additions.

Lyrics
The Tiger

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And What shoulder, and what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

William Blake

Pretty ominous sounding! Love that bass and heavy guitars. The section starting around 2:30 just opens up. Takes the track to another and very cool place. Great poem and so well delivered.

A very cool effort by all especially the reading of WB. As always a nice blend of atmosphere and ambient coolness. 2:32 was a nice transition to the ear. Enjoyed!

Thanks for sharing

Tyger! Tyger!
Kids love this poem. Though they don't really understand it, they do get the fearful gist alright. I love reading this one out. The soundscape compliments the reading of Blake's wonderful poetry perfectly. An excellent job, I must say.

Wow, the vocals are incredible!
What a great idea, to read a poem from the year 1797, and it fits the song perfectly! You did a great job on this Steve.

Amazing stuff all the way around. Especially given your afliction in the audio dept. Always dark! A bit of jazz chill. Ever heard of Will Sessions?

A dark masterpiece. This is beyond any definition of beauty and runs deep direct to my reptile's spine. Like a dog in a thunderstorm.

Great teamwork
wonderful atmosphere and juxtaposition of music and voice. I love the low volume heavy metal guitars sitting back there around 2:10 or so. Nice one.
