    Time for something different. Use this thread to post anything that you feel particularly proud of. Artwork, poetry, short stories, lyrics, sound bytes, any creative achievements you have. Use it to promote yourself, and to show the world what you can do :D

    Something creative... hmm... The only thing creative that I've done - and am proud of - ever is a painting I did when I was three years old. :err: It's on the wall over my bed actually. But when we get a new camera I'll put it here.

    Ok, well, here's an acoustic piece I wrote earlier this evening in my contemplative mood. The sound quality isn't brilliant, but you should be able to hear something :)

    i also try writing lyrics now and again, but they're too personal and too shitty to post here, i guess. as for my drumming stuff, i never recorded anything decently, but i hope to change that this year.

    erm the first is from a motorbike trip, where we intended to visit the czech republic but were caught in this fucked up flood and had to relocate spontaneously, which we did to italy. the picture was taken on the austrian/german border i guess, on your way back home.
    2nd is just some old town named "stadt blankenberg". i sometimes drove by on my way to our rehearsal room.
    the last one is the well of the house i was raised in.

    VC: very good pics, but I adore the last one. It´s a killer! :) And actually what is the one on the right side of your signature?
    The first pic you posted I thought was switzerland or maybe also somewhere in asia, until I read further


    I have to think if I could post some other stuff. My interviews are something creative of me, because I made all interviewees confess new things never written anywhere before :p But probably most of you have either read them or still no interest in the artists ;)

    I have photos, too, but since once they were taken without credits I don´t feel like publishing them at the moment. And you don´t want to read my texts... :)

    Good idea of the thread, D_J

    @fire: i know. :D it's a tower (oddly enough, with a restaurant in it) located in alexanderplatz, berlin. i know because i spent hours trying to convince rahvin to climb, and still he wouldn't.

    @rahvin: most definitely.

    ok, i can't find the lyrics to 'loathe' anymore. but you can have a midi of the vocal track (i know, it sucks, but we never got around to arrange it properly) at http://www.geopoliticadelpetrolio.com/loathe.mid

    The first part is supposed to be something played on the bass, then when the pseudo fiddle comes in... well, that's the vocals.

    I can only remember that the chorus went you will loathe the ones you now love, and the repeated bit near the end is supposed to say we will not tire, we will not falter, we will not fail.

    well, here comes my crappy attempt at writing lyrics for a song. if anyone of you smart people has any idea about what i was trying to say, please enlighten me because i have none. :p
    and yes, i know it's really awful.

    the shriek mirrors

    the doors that won't be opened
    each tiger in its cage
    i wonder if you feed them
    still fragments of my rage

    last night we went upstairs
    maze perfectly intact
    but waking up i smashed
    its fiction's minor facts

    reflections in your memories
    should duplicate the feeling

    you're the only one who doesn't know i'm talking about you
    a killing ground of space, your killing ground of time

    ch: leave
    splintered glass behind
    tainted glass define
    my empty glass is like
    amnesia

    zero winters cracking ice
    identities will sink
    send out a stronger drill and
    pretend it's milk i drink

    the halls are now revolting
    for severing the ties
    a habit you got into
    by watching fireflies

    reflections in your memories
    should duplicate the feeling

    you're the only one who doesn't know i'm talking about you
    a killing ground of space, your killing ground of time

    ch: leave
    splintered glass behind
    tainted glass define
    my empty glass is like
    amnesia

    you're the only one who doesn't know i'm talking about you
    a killing ground of space, your killing ground of time

    ch2: freeze
    splintered glass deny
    tainted glass aside
    my empty glass implies
    dementia

    mirrors revolving
    mirrors revolting

    well... the good thing with lyrics is that when it's not stupid (yours are not) the way you sing it makes everything different!... what the fuck they are long!!

    Lyrics for Härskar has lines of independant ideas, it's annoying to read them because each line starts a new subject.

    Härskar - Subvert to Array:
    Scions wore the insigna of relenting
    Hidden seed that divulged cloaks
    Face to aeons; renamed the charcoal prints
    Given in to the noxious greenness
    Given in the downrisen rectitude

    Years of guilt erased after shift
    Years of probing forgotten thru ink
    Stills of doubts reviving repudiation
    Stills of craving for old desires

    Another day when my tongue is numb
    Another week refurbishing engines
    Stills of bliss are drowned by illusion
    Stills of disdain, a passive despot

    How to define a chaos for quiescent 'I'?
    How the answer lost inquiring?
    Am I weak against scrolls being athirst
    For my forfeit is left to conceive

    Lecture me, craved one - you belong to the past
    Is the end of all kinds behind curtains
    Am I to be paired off to the faultless rule
    To the untainted criterion

    Can't we mute the hindering
    from the 'heedful' unallowed
    Grow quiet so none can discern
    ...so none will realize

    Days of shift erased after silence
    Years of probing inherited from ink
    Stills of doubts reviving repudiation
    Stills of craving for the old desires

    ...How to define a chaos
    to quiescence...

    Scions wore the insigna of relenting
    Hidden seed that divulged cloaks
    I renamed the charcoal prints
    Given in to the noxious greenness

    Scions wore the insigna of relenting
    Given in the downrisen rectitude


    Almost as confusing as DT lyrics hahaha

    Oh, and for the curious ones, this song is on download at harskar.com; you can also read the guitar tabs for a video of my hands playing the last minute of that song there: http://harskar.com/images/subtabs.htm

    Almost fan's candy material... Oh my god I'm a rockstar!! :headbang:
