about

Ashes Portugal

Band originally formed in 1998. After years of progression, many musical influences were gathered resulting in a very personalized and varied sound which includes moments of anger and frustration in heavy riffs mixed up with melancholy in an ambient aura.

On October 5th 2007, they launched their self-made EP.

After three years in the making, Ecila comes to life in Zero Estudio.

Track Name: ecilA
Sitting on the edge of his own
sorrow
he wonders but not wishes much to let come
tomorrow
trying to find comfort on his own
sobriety
as much as he painfully gazed upon his sworn
destiny

Dying…

without hope and nothing more to beg for
but all that hate in that miserable
hatred soul, there's nothing more there
but cold

and then out of nothing, without warning
an unknown soul entwined in shadows
shaping within mysterious petals
rises from the dust

blood flowing on this shiver
energy bursting from cell to cell
breathe in
breathe out

here
she
comes
now...

Here she
comes!
falling
down
on this
soul
breathing
slow
living

as if it was written,
as if it was inevitable
impossible to deny!

breathing in!

she whispered down
with no real sound:

ecilA

discover the paths that lie in your way
just keep in mind that
if you don't find a way
a way will find you!

the one as whole...
...the whole as one!

Darkshire

if you don't find a way a way will find you...(x9)

live
now...

Set yourself free!
then set your soul free!
Set yourself free
to set your soul free!
if it was written,
it was inevitable
impossible to deny!
impossible to
deny!
Track Name: Hall Of Mirrors
Hiding
Waiting...
sleeping
dreaming...

restless mind
tattered and petrified
running through
this mind of mine...

holding back
from the pain
I'm running blind
it's just the same...

on this
hall of
smoke and mirrors...

hiding..
waiting...
on this hall of mine..!!

cold torn and disconnected,
eyes closed
mind blown

soul thrown and insurrected
knowing not
where This is

so strange...
what's this...?!

dreaming...
hiding,
waiting,
sleeping and dreaming,
restless mind
tattered and petrified
running through
this mind of mine...
holding back
from the pain
running blind
it's just the same
it's all the same
is there nothing left
for me to
say...?!

How the fuck did I get myself
into this shit?!

Breaking down and

shaking in fear!

You've gotta tell me
where
am
I?

I don't know any of
this...

I don't know
any of
this!
I don't
know!!
Track Name: The Kind Of Strange
Walking around in
a world unknown to me
I dare to cross the line
on the verge of sanity

I tried to figure'em out
the riddles, the signs, the thrills on my mind
until a voice spoke to me

Mad Hater:

hey you
poor child
you try to
heal the
wounds on
your life
you know it’s
falling appart

falling into
a vast abyss

Ecila:

Whom is this voice that reaches me?
Have I truthfully fallen in lunacy?
What am I, who am I, what am I doing here?
it seems I'm living a deep dark nightmare

Mad Hater:

wake up!
wake up!
wake up!
wake up now!

the whole world's gone mad
and you were taken with it
embrace the madness within yourself
only then will you be free

wake up!
wake up!
wake up!
Track Name: Rewind
Finally sit down
on this forest of lunacy
I pray

All of this I'm going through
was there anything you could do?
I am fading on your dream...

Darkshire:

Never rewind
No!
Never remind
your hell

facing all
your whole past
Could it all
be a test?

Ecila:

I found
creatures
inbound
mirrors

outta control to
face this
Searchin'the key to
leave this
do you know what's
become
of your only
bastard child?

Darkshire:

Never rewind!!
Track Name: Queen Of Thy Black Hearts
the freezing cold awakes me
my body shivers while it breaks me
still I remember all that has been
since I've landed on this grim

I swear to you, my oldest friend
I swear I know not what I am
doing here - never knew;
never cared
as long as it didn't hurt,
then there I'd stand...

Darkshire

You still run and run and hide
without strength nor pride
You still run and run and kill
just for your own thrill

Queen of Thy Blackhearts

You walked so far,
along this nightmare
yet you hold the scar

but what do you care?

ecilA

I swear I do regret
for more that I try I can't forget

so
in
so
my

now take me,
sweet cold blood
now kill me,
queen, my love

Queen of Thy Blackhearts

You're lost,young one
for all that you've done
scarred you

beyond the scar you hold
it's deep, torn and cold

beyond the scar you hold
it's deep, torn and cold

it's only fair
that you're scared

you should learn
understand why you're down
down
Track Name: Redemption
and now here I lay...
I am so afraid...

QUEEN OF THY BLACKHEARTS

and now here you lay
seeking for help
to escape your own hell?

you're beyond forgiveness
beyond saving
I'll crush you severely
for what you're asking

ECILA

I'm dying...
oohhh...
I'm fading...

DARKSHIRe

it's all your fault, young one!
there's no redemption
for what you've done!
no!

you seek refuge besides
all the abuse
you've inflicted?!
oh you're sickened!!

QUEEN OF THY BLACKHEARTS

Hush, now!
Silence!
You're mine!
I will
deny
the absolution
you seek!

ECILA

I fear the wound inside and
now I see you
the voice that lead me through
this maze lost in time

QUEEN OF THY BLACKHEARTS

you were given everything
and tore it all down
you are nothing but a
damned fucking ungratefull (ungrateful) hound!

ECILA

Cast away...
asleep I lay...

alone and cold
I never dreamed of falling so far

QUEEN OF THY BLACKHEARTS

you've got no way out!
You will crumble!
You will suffer!
there will be no more peace for you!

ECILA

I'm lost beyond redemption...
Beyond saving, I've got
no hope for salvation...
...not anymore.

QUEEN OF THY BLACKHEARTS

Hush, now!
Silence!
You're mine!
I will
deny
the absolution
you seek!

OFF
WITH
YOUR
HEAD!
