about

After the (for me) disappointing Tender Breath, Sculptured Angels became a peak of my creativity. With Julia we found our female voice, Phantom of the Opera inspired lyrics but bad recordings. Thank you Behringer V-Amp Pro.

This demo was recorded by:
Andreas P. (guitars/orchestration/additional vocals),
Andrew B. (bass),
Michael P. (vocals)
Julia B. (vocals)

about

Shadegrown Germany

Shadegrown, named after a song of the 1996 Sentenced Album Down, started in the late 90s as a one man band project.
With each demo new people joined the band. After 2015 it basically became a one man band again.
Currently I am working on rerecordings of the first four demos. Unreleased stuff from 2016 also exists. After that new material will follow!

Track Name: See why in shadows I hide
Never darker than today, I take your hand, you wipe it away
Never colder than tonight, I lie awake and hear myself sigh
For the tortures of life, after all beauties inside
Never further away from you, never as lonely as without you

Too tired to feel, too sad to be real
Too weak for the pain you left with me
Too empty to be, too shattered to flee
As you break down without me

Still you feel the breeze and you freeze
as I haunt you by night, unseen by your eyes
Personified twin of all beautiful sins,
three times 6 with a heart yet transfixed
My breath a caress of Death on your chest
/Your breath a caress of Death on my chest
I take your mind to a fathomless depth
/You take my mind to a fathomless depth
That’s why in shadows I hide as I spy you asleep
/That’s why in shadows you hide as you spy me asleep
Curled within dreams so dark, so sweet
/Curled within dreams so dark

You plant the rose, you sought the seeds
Of the thorns that make my heart bleed
You raised this life, you let it grow
And now you harvest the sorrow
Too long watered with blood, my throat is choking by mud
Venomous soil spreads within
The blossom of love is withering

Too tired to feel, too sad to be real
Too weak for the pain you left with me
Too empty to be, too shattered to flee
As you break down without me

Still you feel the breeze and you freeze
as I haunt you by night, unseen by your eyes
Personified twin of all beautiful sins,
three times 6 – 6 6 6
My breath a caress of Death on your chest
/Your breath a caress of Death on my chest
I take your mind to a fathomless depth
/You take my mind to a fathomless depth
That’s why in shadows I hide as I spy you asleep
/That’s why in shadows you hide as you spy me asleep
Curled within dreams so dark, so sweet
Track Name: Too long you've wandered in winter
Beloved cold winter, take my warm heart

Beloved cold winter, take my warm heart
Into your icy hands
Into your grasp

Color this world into all shades of grey
Make the ground shine even through the darkest of the night

This frozen lake in the shape of our love
Remains as a gift of a fragile lust
And of all that’s lost
Of all that’s lost

In this long dark winter, let me warm your soul
In this land forlorn, let me save you from the cold
In this long dark winter, let me hold you tight
In this land of ice, let me guide you through the night
In this cold winter night
Heat my heart with love
In this land of ice
Hold me, hold me tight

Old grey sky let those snowflakes slowly fly
Cover grass, trees, hills and the empty countryside with your pride

This frozen lake in the shape of a cross
Stains a graveyard of love lost
But a new yet to begin

In this long dark winter, let me warm your soul
In this land forlorn, let me save you from the cold
In this long dark winter, let me hold you tight
In this land of ice, let me guide you through the night
In this cold winter night
Heat my heart with love
In this land of ice
Hold me, hold me tight

I sense her near…
And I watch you, wondering,
how you disappeared right out of my dreams
Into this dismal life, into this night
And I take you by my side, let stars shine through my eyes
Hold you close, share your breath, melt in you, join your caress
In this land of ice

In this cold winter night, hold me tight
Till we both fly
Track Name: Sculptured Angels, cold and monumental
The sun sets in your heart and the moon shines through at last
The inheritance of love remains as scars carved deep into my arms
A momentous desire, a temporary fire, slowly set to die
And to extinguish as day turns to night
Welcome back sweet tears, remember me being here, bleeding like before
Love lies buried beside me after all

Embraced by raging flames, the tortures that still remain
Shiver through my bones and what once bled truly turned to stone
Cold as winters heart
My skin and tears now are
As soul and shell do part
Floating right into the lights above
Two hearts in love combined
Life and die in time
See their soul in silence pass
And becoming stars
Track Name: All the sadness of the world
All I saw was a scene of a desperate life
And pity told my heart to brake
All I felt was a pain I will always retain
And the scars will forever remain

She was young and yet so dead
And her eyes spoke al language of grief
Left by God and the cross around her neck
Stained a symbol of unfulfilled dreams

All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands

She left yet bereft of a physical death
To a place where her tortures will be healed
She knows where she goes she won’t be alone
And no one will miss her or mourn

Dry your tears little victim of life
Clean your face, wash away every trace
Walk right into the black shining light
And leave to a never known place

All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins
All the sadness dies in her hands
Track Name: The tears I might have shed
So cold is this night
And I lay in your arms, feeling safety from harms
Hold, hold me tight
And I stay here with you through the passage of time

Inside your eyes my eyes reflect
And present all fears I once possessed
Memories of tortures lay to rest
And all the tears I might have shed

So dark is this night
And the moon in the sky shimmers on the earth white
As ice and stars, in the lake they dance
With fireflies in their glance

The great divine and godlike shine upon your eyes and mine
The elder scars that all have passed into the winters freezing grasp
And I feel you so you do me, it’s not just a creation of fantasy
I hear my heart and I sense yours, beating in lovely unity

So cold is this night
So dark is this night

Inside your eyes my eyes reflect
And present all fears I once possessed
Memories of tortures lay to rest
And all the tears I might have shed

The great divine and godlike shine upon your eyes and mine
The elder scars that all have passed into the winters freezing grasp
And I feel you so you do me, it’s not just a creation of fantasy
I hear my heart and I sense yours, beating in lovely unity
Gone are the tears I might have shed
Track Name: In a cold winternight (2003)
As I wander through this damn icy cold
My thoughts travel beyond my flesh

I feel you, I smell you, I want you so close to me
My soul cries for you in grief

And I see you in the distance and I feel that you notice me
The closer you get, I realize I’ll be dead
The cold winds starts blowing and my mortal flesh starts dying
The day covered by the wings that this icy night spreads

In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me
In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winter night I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die

As I wander with you by my side
My emotions on fire and I

I hold you, I kiss you, I want you to marry me
My heart cries for you in grief

And all flowers that once blossomed now covered by snow
The longer we walk the colder it grows
A cold winds stars blowing and I feel that I’m dying
The rivers stand still as my blood that once flowed

In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me
In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winter night I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die

I need you, for all my life exists because of you
If you die, my soul will die with you
Please hold on to the light, which keeps our love burning bright
Don’t leave me back in this darkness

I resign, close my eyes, let me slip away and die
Blue is my flesh as I take my last breath
My wounds stopped to bleed and my veins stopped to feed
My heart that once beat just for you
In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me

In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast
In this cold winter night I grant you my life
As frost spreads it’s might, please let me, I die
Track Name: I lay to rest (2003)
The moon breaks through the sky
And the earth becomes a virgin dressed in white
Embraced by trees that reach their arms into her heart
And hold me tight, covered by night

The stars shine down on me
And alight my spirit for eternity
I lay to rest under a long forgotten host
The eye of God, in peace I rot
