Description
Thanks a million to Mike_D and Fasteddie for giving me the amazing chance to do vocals and lyrics for this song! Credit goes to Fasteddie for bass guitar and Mike_D for guitars/drums/mixing. As for the lyrical component, this song is about poetry. In fact, the song IS poetry, mimicking poetry in the case of worshiping poetry. This poem is my love and my hatred for poetry. But, as poetry is subjective, it could be life. Read it how you like, interperet it to death.

Lyrics
(Agony is my weapon, words are my shield)
This agony I see
You burned into me
And the razor blades tend to set me free
Believe
All you've ever done to me has been the key
To unlocking me
Who I am today
Is not close to the same
Girl you tore apart and drove insane
The game
Is not in what you seek
But how you devise in to making it weak

Agony is my weapon
Words are my shield
Every single wrong you make allows me to feel

Whatever you do
It doesn't matter
Anymore
I've constructed
My own cure
To this sickness
Breaking it down
Brick
By
Goddamn brick

Agony is my weapon
Words are my shield
Every single wrong you make allows me to feel

Mmm...
So this is what revenge tastes like
My tongue is on fire
I'm killing a liar

And everything you've done
You know it all comes
Down to one
Seven
Fold
Every time steel split my skin
You'll pay
Over and over again

Agonize
Your demise

Agony is my weapon
Words are my shield
Every single wrong you make allows me to feel

I use a mac with a built-in mic, but I believe both the Mikes use something much more sophisticated :)

Garageband for me, again, I'm sure the Mikes do something fancier.

I was shocked from the beginning but in a very good way! It was totally intense and awesome! This was some great teamwork! I wish this could be one of those songs I hear playing when I walk into Hot Topic, that'd be so cool and this song is the perfect type of material! Thanks for sharing!

Whoa... E ticket ride!
OK, OK... I am afraid that despite the fact that this is not at all my cup of tea... I must admit that the musicianship and singing and harmony choices are quite evocative and adrenaline-pumping, musically, and the lyrics do indeed paint dark pictures that wedge into my medulla oblongata. And I think I might even have to allow myself to suggest that the vox might be slightly boosted, or just a little clearer here and there, but perhaps the muddy growl is tied to the genre, or maybe Addison is just looking to get a nice microphone for Xmas :-) Great collaboration work you three!

Now I need to go home and pet a cute kitty cat!

ttfn,
Drakonis

This rocks, crunchs and paves with a stellar drive. Addison, you sound killer. How'd you get them big growls? too cool.

This was too much fun!
Thanks to both you guys for letting me be a part of this song. It could easily be the best that I've been involved with since joining this community.

Addison, you are now officially my daughter's hero! Her friends all want her to burn copies of this song for them. Oh, and there is a tad bit of Otep influence here. Only I think you have your own style as well.

Mike is the genius behind this. He is so good at what he does. He is really meticulous; that's a good thing. He's taught me how to be patient and pick apart a song. Before, I would just slam them out. Now I think "What would Mike do?"

Thanks you guys for letting me be a part of this.

It's a hit!

You and fasteddie are the best! I'm glad I was able to get a mix you were OK with.

I know your schedule was pretty full and I'm still amazed at how quickly you got the VOX written/recorded!

This really was a blast to work on- a huge thanks to you two for making this song rock!!!

Yikes. I heard Lacuna Coil in the first few seconds there. Adrenaline surge. Your vocals could come up a little. Interesting lyrics. Well done. That guitar and bass are killing me. That's the spirit. This is really good. Compliments to you and your ass-kicking collaborators.

Right from the outset
.. everything works here. this is the kind of track you use to define a genre. It has enough classic and modern metal mannerisms to fill a swimming pool. From the outstanding production to the deliberately processed drums in places this rocks hard. The vocals are so good and sop perfectly tuned to the piece that its hard to believe this is a collab and not a touring band. Fasteddie and Mike provide the rock onto which Addison can climb and preach for the gods of metal. Rock on!
An instant fave.

Dark indeed! Great collab. Enjoyed it. Sounded fantastic in the head phones. I would like to hear the vocals bumped up a notch!

I need to get out more! This is a great project to showcase your vocals on. Great guys to have worked with too, I might add. Glad to have met you.... wish we could have had more one on one time to get to know each other better. Maureen and I were happy to see you and see some of your art (yes, I was looking over your shoulder while you were sketching).

Hey, Addi here. Hopefully I'll be coming out of this hiatus soon, but no promises. I'm working on something, I'm not sure if I'm happy with it but maybe it will make its way up here. -Vocalist, painter, poet.... [see more]
