Lyrics

1. Reborn

Night is coming, my identity is lost.
Lost in my thoughts, that already came to nothing.
The sun won't shine, light is blinding my sight.
I can't see you,soul of mine .
I can't see you, soul of mine.
Find me a place in which to be born again,
I will be born again from my ashes,
I will be born again and defeat my monster.
I can feel the pain, I'm not dead yet.
This is not the last night, tears hide my face.
Buried in my soul I will be born again.
Find me a place in which to be born again,
I will be born again from my ashes,
I will be born again and I will defeat my monster.
The sun won't shine, the light is blinding my sight.
I can't see you, soul of mine.
I can't see you, soul of mine.
Find me a place in which to be born again,
I will be born again from my ashes,
I will be born again and I will defeat my monster.

2 - Trust Issues

Every stab in my back
Proves I'm not made of stone
Not going to seem so pitful
Just regain my time and my life
There's no hope for this society
No cure for this cancer
Eradicate this desease ain't easy
Can't lie to myself anymore
Psycho bitches spoiled me too much
Makes me feel like water in my lungs
There's no hope
No hope
No hope
Scratching out my skin like paper
Cut my wrists and bleed
Look What make me do
Hear My dying breath
Smell My rotten soul
Taste My dried blood
Touch My cold corpse
Isn't what you're hoping I'll do soon
You wrong buddy
I'm not surrender
I am not surrender
I'm cold like a stone
Can you hear my nerves pulse
My brain screams
I'm not surrender
I'm cold like stone
I am not surrender
I am not surrender
There's no hope
There's no hope
No hope
No hope

Interview

“…SCENT OF DARKNESS is the studio project of Gianluca Moreo (Composer, Guitars) and Lorenzo Telve (Vocals, Drum, Bass, and Mastering). We were members of the symphonic black metal band VEREOR NOX. This project comes to life in 2018 in Italy. This year we released the album "Insanitude" with the participation of many guests such as Matteo Antonelli, the voice in "Trust Issues", and Davy Scarpellini and Mario Clames in "Whispers from Nowhere". It is a psychological concept album that tells about a boy who suffers from depression, loneliness, and abandonment and finds it difficult to live within society. Our style combines classic funeral doom by combining influences from depressive black metal. We like to create slow, solemn melodies, atmospheres that transport the listener to another dimension. We are preparing to bring another full album to the fans. I am working on various merchandising ideas, and the band is taking on a new graphic imprint. I want to thank everyone for supporting us. We promise that we will be back soon with some new material…”

Lyrics

3 - Crowded Solitude

do you believe that there's no god out there who would help me?
Do you believe there is no hope through the abyss?
You locked me in a room,
trying to kill me
do you think i don't know you?
Silence is my punishment
the martyrdom for my mental illness
I've chosen
I'm traveling in the dark,
in the deep abyss of my existence
my memories do not exist
my soul is ash.
I need you,
death.
blood flows
let me go.
do not forget me.
let me slip away,
beyond the void
beyond the walls
don't tell me it's not real
let me go.
I didn’t chose my destiny,
Old memories will be deleted
Don’t forget my silence
in the darkness i want to travel alone but don't (please do not) forget me
You asked me
to bear the weight of mankind,
it’s time to go,
I don’t need heaven
I don’t even need hell
Nothing is eternal
I just need to say goodbye.
His every error will be paid
With my innocent
Blood!
It’s not time for regrets
I will fly beyond the stars.

4 - Whispers From Nowhere

…Another night
darkness has returned
I have no choice
In dust memories
I can tell you
My oldest friends
the end…”

I wish to go back
from the vortex that I created
my mind has removed
your memory
Bloody angels
they feed on anger
your blood will be shed
your blood will be drunk
Dark demons are watching you
across the river
I shed my tears
in emptiness
In your arms I have entrusted
time has broken my life away
“…My only friends
demons of humanity
take my soul and ashes
don't let me burn
in your hell
I am an angel
with fallen wings
humanity has my name
I only have death”
Please let me go
back to my dust
Please let me pass
the Twilight
Please let me go beyond the darkness
Please let me go beyond the darkness
Please let me go beyond the darkness
