Hi there! I have done something I consider myself smart for. I have really been looking for the lyrics to the song My Hollow Shell by Swedish heavy metal band Corroded, which I did a review of back in 2012 ( which you can read HERE). I was annoyed that the lyrics to this song was not published anywhere, and it seems as if there are many of you out there that searches for these lyrics. My review of the song is actually 6th if you search on google for “my hollow shell corroded lyrics”.
Now, however, the smart thing I did, was that I bought the album the song is on, and because of that, got the lyrics in the CD booklet. I am now giving them to you. ( I took the liberty to correct a grammatical error in the lyrics, though, as I am pretty sure that they mean “lose” instead of what they wrote: “loose”, in the refrain).

Here are the official lyrics for the song My Hollow Shell by Corroded, off the album Exit to Transfer (2010):
My personal decay, further, faster longer gone
Killing my mind for it to leave me in peace
Once with eyes of clarity, shrouded in a veil
Yearning for relief that is nowhere to be found 

I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Nothing left, nothing to repair
I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Alone in my hollow shell

A sense of purpose left, since long gone lost
Treading on glass in the minefield of my brain
Hollow thoughts where once a mind was found
Screaming at the ghosts whom are long gone now

(Guitar Solo)

I don’t want to be so broken 
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Nothing left, nothing to repair
I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Alone in my hollow shell.

I hope you will enjoy the song more with the knowledge of what they actually are singing. I know I feel a sense of relief for it. They are dark and sore, which fits the song perfectly, and as metal should sound. Don’t have much else to say, but I really hope you appreciated this post, and I hope you will read my review as well.

Hi there! I’m still alive! Sorry for not blogging in over a month now, had a lack of inspiration, time and willpower to write anything, but now I’m back, and hopefully for good.

I asked a friend of mine to pick a song, to get started, and chose My Hollow Shell by the Swedish heavy metal band Corroded. Intentionally or not, this friend made it hard for me by picking one of the songs that are no registered lyrics on. None  what-so-ever! Anyway, the song was published on the album Exit To Transfer (2010). I won’t bother now with finding out what the lyrics are, you can listen and make up your own minds about it. Enjoy!

First of all, love the heavy guitars chugging through the whole song. The vocalist has a very deep voice, making the song sound even darker, which I really like. I also very much enjoyed listening to the guitar solo. Well played, Sweden, well played.

Now, I listened a couple of times (more like 20!) to the refrain to maybe get a quote out of it, and I don’t know if it’s correct, but here it is:

“There is nothing left to lose, and I’m about to take my lonely, my hollow shell”
(Corroded – My Hollow Shell)

I have bought the album, and will deliver you the magnificent lyrics to this song in my new post:

And, correction to the song quote (which wasn’t very wrong, AND, there is a grammatical error in the lyrics):
“There is nothing left to loose, but I’m about to try, alone in my hollow shell”
(Corroded – My Hollow Shell)

Nomy – Cocaine

Hello there, my dear followers! (and others, if there are any).
This time  I’ve chosen the song Cocaine by Nomy, from the album Song Or Suicide (2009). The lyrics is here, and the song itself:

 

This is just a song that rocks. Absolutely love the guitar riffs, and the vocalist’s voice is rough and cool. The lyrics is good, not much to say about them, unfortunately, it’s actually hard to say anything special about this song, it’s just good! This is the first time it has been this hard to say something about a good song!
Nomy is a Swedish singer/songwriter without any contracts, he has published all his music online for free. This has actually been successful, and Cocaine has been one of the most popular songs he’s made. All his songs is made exclusively by him.  He’s definitely worth a listen.
Now, since I had such a hard time writing about this song, I will finish here, before I make a fool out of myself.

“Now it’s too late, too late to live, and my conscience killing me
So am I alive, but I’m not free”
(Cocaine – Nomy)
