about

This track marks a new age for the band. Moving away from the previous tracks which are a bit simpler and catchier, Ghost Star introduces a more emotional and complex approach to our music writing as well as more personal (though admittedly obscure) lyrics. The full extent of this change will become more obvious in the upcoming album.

lyrics

All that is me, all is you
Feel me, hear me
Our past and present aligned
In this life, every life

As I walk through the milky way
Beyond the stars, burning stars, above the high skies
And all around me cold space entropy
Among a billion sparkling dots, a bluish light
So faded and so weak, its form a dying glint
The glow of it so mine

Mirror of me, plain view
See me, feel me
Your ghostly ties bind my sight
You 're my eyes, yearning eyes
Speak to me, let me taste your sorrow

In the center of the world
Upon the throne of might and of the light
I radiate life
I am an immortal god
I'm on fire
The fire now is gone, a faint ember holds
And all of it my eyes

As I walk through the milky way
Into the silence of the mind, the void of matter lies
Where grains of stardust ignite my skin
A pale sign of glorious days, I descry
A fragment of itself, trapped and forever kept
In memory of light

In the center of the world
Upon the throne of might and of the light
I radiate life
I am an immortal god
I'm on fire
The fire now is gone, a faint ember holds
And all of it my eyes

A ghost star it's all I am
A broken man fading into this nothingness
Once bright and proud, an inspiring sight to behold
Past greatness torments my dreams
As I accept I will never shine again
I rest in peace

about

Asphodel Patra, Greece

Asphodel is a melodic metal band based in Patras, Greece.

Our personal take on music is one rooted in gothic and black metal with a lot of doom elements and just a taste of classical music. We love powerful emotional melodies and dark or even depressing musical themes. This is the kind of music we work hard to produce. ... more
