about

Hello again :)

This time it's a full length... and it's pretty long.
Finally I think I've achieved my goal with this album.
The idea was to put everything I love in it. Could be styles, bands, chords or any specifics details, whatever...
You can see this album as a melting pot, tributing my favorites artist around the world.
Don't be surprised if you listen something familiar, it might be because I took it from someone else (or even from me haha), re-arranged, re-recorded, and then reproduced it in my own way.
That's the concept here, Imitation as a fundamental learning/writing method.

Anyway, like the previous release, this one is eclectic, even in the production ! Every tracks are different and have their own ambiances, vibes and sounds... And they still flow well together !
There are a lot of vst, but also a lot more live instruments ! Which is pretty new in my music !

Well... Thanks for listening and/or thank you for buying, ENJOY !!
:)

Track Name: Imitation
Away, from this common state of hope
Stop dreaming, wake up and see,
What you could be, now…
Away, from this poor duplication.
Consider, a new way of creation
By imitation

Away, from this common state of hope
Stop dreaming, wake up and see,
Away, from this poor duplication.
Consider, a new way of creation
By imitation

« We dont stand up »

As easy as it may seem, we're all but a copy.
Where are your pride and dignity ?

See you're not alone, feeling so sorrow!
What about tomorrow?
Dont stand in my shadow !
And I will gladly teach you how to be me

Away, from this common state of hope
Stop dreaming, wake up and see,
Away, from this poor duplication.
Consider, a new way of creation
By imitation

Now you are all alone,
Pretending something you will never be
Now be gone cause i'm the god that you will never be
Now be gone cause you're a slave and just a wannabe,
No, you're wrong, I will be the end of you
Track Name: Impostors
Innocence is lost,
You stole every powers
You believe in Nothing
While everything conforts your
Misconception, illusionary universe
Arrogance defines your mind
And I’m still the forsaken…

Innocence is lost
I waste a long battle
War and crimes are now my design
Since your art has
Evolved, in a way,
I can’t control
I was the first creator
You will be the last, one.

You don’t create
I create
You don’t create
I created you.

Unilateral illusions, interest come first in line
Science, religion, everything is polluted
I gave you the chance to join,
But you stayed. Experiment.
more and more years after I can’t follow
The machine has become an invisible shadow

I created a beast, I can’t destroy
Ingenuity, is surpassing everyone.

Cultes érigés, temples bâtis,
Guerres et croisades, meutres d’impis
Rien n’arrêtait ma prise de contrôle
Avant que tu ne commence à chanter, peindre, sculpter, créer, recommencer
Pour me défier.

You don't create.
I created you.
I created you.

Imitation is way beyond my control
Impostors are the true creators.
