Gods of Eden Sydney, Australia

Gods of Eden are a band pushing the limits of creativity and technical ability. Starting out as the solo project of guitarist Danni Perez in 2010, the band has developed into a full five piece line up that combines a fanatic love of heavy metal with an alternative view of modern society’s dystopian ideals. ... more

Track Name: Gods of Eden
GODS OF EDEN

Descended from the stars
Wreaking devastation
From foreign worlds they came
To exploit the riches of the soil
Without reckoning
Their lust in greed inflicts a well worn process of enslavement

But it all shows up in time
The Gods of Eden
Languishing a top of the stolen throne of the slaves

We feared nothing from emptiness
Before the whole world collapsed at our feet

Blood sacrifice for a nervous world
Unto new agents that control it
Twisting our minds into fear through despair and disease

But it all shows up in time
They tore down Eden
Re-building on top of the stolen world of the slaves

Orphaned in divine chaos
Divine philosophy
With maligned ends

As we're shifting sands of time
Searching for our freedom stained
Nothing here is divine free from pain

(Gods of Eden)
And Eden became earth
(Gods of Eden)
After all the years that passed her
(Gods of Eden)
That deposed the God's creation
(Gods of Eden)
And washed away the blood with tears
Track Name: Shiva's Dream
SHIVA'S DREAM

Breaking out of this chrysalis bathed in new life
See the world through reanimated eyes
Evolution is done, waste by-product of time and light
As the cycle rolls on
Feeling human inside, contracting iris within the light
Living prominent dreams, new born foetal reality screams
Door is opening to the next stage of us

All that was broken down, scattered pieces of the dead regime
Fairytale debris field, depicting chaos driving change
Build upon the ruins and decay, fixated on recreation
While Shiva dreams innocent in catastrophic R.E.M

Blessed is the tune of the open wound
Singing songs of sacrifice and lessons learnt
Call my broken will to arms
To rise against the dust and build an order out of shed blood

Reaching undiscovered heights and greater depths of understanding
As we’re writing of a history of broken dreams and shattered forms
All that never made it through was not designed for transformation
This dreaming is infinite, this mind (will) forever be unknown

Blessed is the tune of the open wound
Singing songs of sacrifice and lessons learnt
Call my broken will to arms
Dividing all the dust to separate the facts from what is known

Reach a renaissance in flames
Burning for the glory of it all
Casting forth to where the air is still
Dreaming deep within the cosmic hush

Dream in flames!

The apex reaches for an ounce of sunlight
The golden crown upon a moments head
We are the ones with a morbid fascination
Forsaken everything we’ve learned from this

So as quickly as it came it will wash away


The descent was sweet at first
But there is no chance of making it back

Nothing is golden now, bitter cracks in the foundation
Artifice broken down to expose the face of dying shame
Nothing is worthy here, bloated world is rank corruption
As Shiva’s dream manifests to tear down fractured walls again

Blessed is the tune of the open wound
Singing songs of sacrifice and lessons learnt
Call my broken will to arms
To rise against the dark consuming everything that ever was

Every end fills a need that’s beyond all control
Evolution becomes a waste by-product of time and light
As the cycle rolls on
Feeling human inside, contracting iris within the light
Living prominent dreams new born foetal reality screams
Door is opening to the next stage of us
Track Name: First Contact
FIRST CONTACT

I must be dreaming
Chaotic visions overwhelming
Something missing
Feel the absence (like a) yawning chasm
The cosmic rhythm
Swings from stable into fluctuating
The old imbalance
Shifts it’s sites from ancient houses

Calling out in the dark of night
Fallen angel rising
Tear a hole through the veil of time
To the end of Eden’s reign

This is not the end of us
We’ve just begun

Tiny seconds left
Balanced on the edge
Distil the cup of peace
An ocean of disease

Calling out in the dark of night
Fallen angel rising
Tear a hole through the veil of time
To the end of Edens reign
World reborn in the changing tide
The new dawn is rising
All the dead wood is swept aside
To rebuild the world again

This is not the end of us
Children of the sun
So why crawl beneath the gods
When you’re made of stars

The sky is open now
The wheel has spun around
The blind of all can see that this leads to something
So start counting all the signs
That are perfectly aligned
They try to hide what is revealed
They pretend this isn’t real

But we are all the last to know

So close your eyes
Stay asleep
Stay unsatisfied
Insecure in the day
Where there’s no place left to hide


Calling out (in the) dark of night
Fallen angel rising
Tear a hole (through the) veil of time
To the end of Eden’s reign
World reborn (in the) changing tide
The new dawn is rising
All the dead wood is swept aside
To rebuild the world again
Track Name: Harvesting the Slave Race
HARVESTING THE SLAVE RACE

Fighting hard against defeat
We are the agents of a new frontier
Technological gods
A race created by machine to kill, destroy and die

You’re my enemy, and you’ll suffer for it
So the war continues

We are the sacrificial knife
Placed upon an altar of despair
Manufactured chaos

No escape, your life is cheap
Nothing left, no way home

Battle cries prophesize the nature of the trauma in the air
Holocaust in total
Shrapnel reign, drops in iron burning death on one and all

You’re my enemy, and you’ll die the same as me
So the war continues

We are the sacrificial lamb
Placed before an altar of despair
To pay the ultimate cost

No escape, your life is cheap
Nothing left, no way home

Now the battles done
Buried in the silence
The last survivors will contemplate
The road that lead us here
We fight for our master’s pleasure
And they ensure that we die

(in) War

So till your soil fertilized in blood
It’s all that we are what we become
Slave energy for future crops to feed
(On) the ashes that remain
