about

Since 2007 the Canadian Graham J., mastermind of the band, bestows us again and again with releases, that blast off a lot of musical borders. Noise, Progressive Rock, Post Punk, Gothic Rock, even a pinch of pop is part of the music. That oneself can merge all those styles successfully to a top quality album, is proven once more with “The Maw Of Sleep” by THE SILENCE INDUSTRY. Familiar quality meets new ideas and gets packed into the mentioned alloy, to offer a firework of this unique music to old as well as new fans.

Track Name: Insurgent Heart(s)
lead me inside
this breathless gate
yawning with
endless
secret smiles
take me into
your
otherworld
with coruscating kisses
like so many
stars

(we burn)

beyond the grip
of silver
our flaming hearts
of cold
detonate
cut rifts
right through the
borders


limits will
lie like
casualties tonight
as the moonlight falls
like rain
upon our naked skins


bind me
with your
silent lips
to the skies
and the deaths
of depthless cages


we burn
brighter we burn
as the stars
of Antares

you and i
and you and i
you and i
and what
may come
shattering
the gates
beyond
exploding in
your hidden
dark


bind me
with your
silent lips
to the skies
and the deaths
of depthless cages

as dreamers
we awaken
in the melting glare
of sunlight
without shadow


you and i
and you and i
you and i
and what
may come
shattering
the gates
beyond
exploding in
your hidden
dark
Track Name: Global Spring
the taste of spring
upon our lips
exchanging kisses
in the din
of an unknown world

lambent and
luminous
dawn is breaking
through the gathered
crowds
like
a new dimension
ruptured


transgressions in
new colours wake
dreaming
stone conviction
as we
await the summer


pulses, stepping up
to speed
with the song
of muscles grinding
pavement down
into a bed of
newborn flowers
where we will shed
our skins
and make love to
the stars


the taste of spring
as waves crash in
upon the gates of
here and now
transgressions in
new colours wake
burning
stone conviction
sharing
kisses
with sun


paradise
burns in your eyes
and paradise
is waiting
paradise
(latent) burns in your eyes
trapped in a seed
(of possibility)


the taste of spring
as gates crash in
upon the face of
here and now
and paradise
burns in our eyes
and paradise
emerges
from echoing of
voices
shouting
in the sun-baked
streets
upon our
wings of
fire.
Track Name: The Maw of Sleep
survival is
a heatless lover
fleeing down
abandoned
streets
where
dreaming is a
polar wind
caressing
shades
pale
in
mercury
exhaustion,
haze-like, descends
over
the sleeping city
alien
in the weeping
lens
of distance

we stand and
move our limbs
but we cannot
shake the sleep
escape is everywhere
and nowhere
and never what
it seems
each and all and
ever downwards
racing
through an
abyss
collapsing
into the headwaters
of nothing


the sun is fled
to what end?


our hungers
turn the gears
above our heads
muscles spent
and passions bled
enduring like
the deadest sea
dreams and desolation
into the maw
of sleep


to what end?
to what end?

strain I would against these bonds
if only every movement
did not tighter draw them


hunger
turns the gears
about our heads
passions spent
and muscles bled
buried deep
beneath a sea
of dreams and desolation
into the maw
of sleep

when
will we
awaken?
Track Name: Giants Over Broken Earth
from the womb
of shadows
we rush
like cosmic sparks
children of
contradiction
and revenge

brilliant in the misty
spaces, between
collapsing
structure(s)
rising
like the flow
of solar tides


we dream of
summer storms
to chase
the dust
across this
broken landscape


beneath the
gods of
silver
await reflections
in the pools
of rainwater and
iodine 131
seething with
a love like rage
arise
arise
take to
the skies


keep faith
for the breath
of fate


we embrace
the heat
of movement in
the blazing sun
to smash tomorrow's
doors


heaven's
breach is
hailing absolution
down
to wash the dust
and ash away


no more
to dream of
storms
we call them
down!
new trees will
stand like giants
over broken earth
seething with a
love like rage
arise
arise
take to the
skies.
Track Name: Yours Is the Light
lambent in the
light of stars
falling like
whispers to the
earth
you speak
a voice
of chrome steel shimmering
across penumbral
wastes

racing, dark
above the sea of
moments
blood, sweat, eternity
in motion


wrap me in rapture
bury me in your
atomic heart
of hearts


yours is the light
electric
pulsing in our
violent embrace
ours will be the
azure skies and hours
of our lives
wet with
perspiration
hunting down the edge
of sight



never give in
never, while I know
you're near

flashing with
the rhythm of days
braving what horrors
they may bring


yours is the light
electric
pulsing in
this violent embrace
ours will be the
azure skies and hours
of our lives
wet with
perspiration
we glisten and shine
hunting down the
edge of sight


heart of hearts
heart of hearts
wet with
perspiration
hunting down the
edge of sight
