Tag Archive: We Are The Fallen


A lot has happened lately. Sad, tragic events driven by hate, evil, and even carelessness. The mass-shooting in Orlando, among other things. The revealing of decades of sexual assault among people in a community in my home county, is another. On top of that, several accidental deaths of people, gone too soon. Actually, the last year has been just all messed up. I don’t have any words to describe the feeling I have, really. Many of my favorite artists have made some great music addressing hate, disaster, and death, and so, I have made a playlist of songs that deal with these topics, that maybe can put words and sound to these feelings. You can subscribe to my Spotify list or go check it out on YouTube. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Take care of each other.

I seriously want to quote all songs, but I’m limiting myself to the first three…

“All of  my hate cannot be bound, I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming”
(Thoughtless – Korn)

“Don’t turn your back on me, I won’t be ignored”
(Faint – Linkin Park)

“I’m not your friend, I won’t soothe your soul, and in the end you’re all dead to me”
(Desecrate Through Reverence – Avenged Sevenfold)

Hey! It’s time for another song by We Are The Fallen. This time I’m writing about a song called I Am Only One, which was published on the album Tear The World Down in 2010. Here are the lyrics.

 

This is a slow and beautiful song. I like Carly’s vocals very much, and the lyrics are sore, but very good. I must admit, I liked it so much the first time I heard it, that I cried a little. I think the violins make the song more dramatic, and the piano melody is very nice. In the end you also hear the intro to the song Tear The World Down.

 

“Ever after never came, and I’m still waiting for a love I’ll never have
And all the dreams I lay to rest, are ghosts that keep me
After all that I’ve become, I am only one”
(I Am Only One – We Are The Fallen)

 

Hello there! Today’s song will be Don’t Leave Me Behind by We Are The Fallen. The song is from the album Tear The World Down (2010) You can find the lyrics here. Enjoy the listening.

 

 

I really enjoy listening to the whole song. It has some great components, both the piano intro, the “dramatic” violins, and the guitar solo. Carly Smithson has a pretty good voice that sets its mark on this song, especially in the refrain. She is holding on to every word and making them all important, reinforcing them. The lyrics are excellent, and may sound a bit needy when you just read them without music, but when backed up by drums and guitars it just sounds great.

 

“So afraid of dreaming
The story is repeating, screaming, monsters, I’m bleeding”
(Don’t Leave Me Behind – We Are The Fallen)

“Never mind I’ll find someone like you”
(Someone Like You – Adele)

Hi there! Well, it’s about freaking time I wrote something, so here it goes…

Today’s song will be St. John by We Are The Fallen. The song was published in 2010 on the album Tear The World Down.
Here’s the lyrics, and video below:

This is a really dark song, with some even darker lyrics. St. John is actually a mental hospital, so thereof the lyrics “When did this asylum become where I sleep”.  It rocks, with brilliant riffs and hard playing all the way through, and it haunts you. You can really feel it with the piano in the intro, followed by a few chugs from heavy guitars, and even Carly’s voice sounds haunting.
Not much more to say, just listen and enjoy.

“My whole world’s forsaken
Won’t let you destroy my faith again”
(St. John – We Are The Fallen)

Happy Halloween!

Hi there!
Well, it’s Halloween today, and I thought that since it’s a special day, and I’ve always liked Halloween, that I would blog twice today!
Have already posted a review on the song “Someone Like You” by Adele, but I thought, “It’s Halloween, and that song doesn’t fit the occasion very much”, so I’m making a playlist, made of songs that I think fits for Halloween:

Evanescence – Haunted

Helloween – Mr. Torture

Evanescence – Sweet Sacrifice

Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare

We Are The Fallen – St. John

Linkin Park – Papercut

Evanescence – Whisper

Paramore – Monster

Three Days Grace – Scared

Avenged Sevenfold – A Little Piece Of Heaven

Evanescence – Your Star

Three Days Grace – Animal I Have Become

Avenged Sevenfold – Welcome To The Family

Evanescence – Sick

We Are The Fallen – Trough Hell

This list is made with the criterias:

  • Sound great
  • Have brilliant lyrics
  • Rock

Sorry if it’s not really varied, but that’s a mix of my favorite artists, so dig it or ditch it.

In addition, I’m quoting some of my favorite songs that I think fit this day perfectly.

 

“Long lost words whisper slowly to me
Still can’t find what keeps me here
When all this time I’ve been so hollow inside
I know you’re still there”
“Watching me, wanting me
I can feel you pull me down”
“Haunting you I can smell you alive
Your heart pounding in my head”
(Haunted – Evanescence)

“Welcome to the torture chamber
Said the sign above the entrance
Laughing as he takes you by the hand
Looking like a manic savage
Inside you can sense the anguish
Theatre of pain has just begun”
“Mr. Torture gives pain
With his whips and his chains
He knows just what you crave
Mr. Torture”
(Mr. Torture – Helloween)

“It’s true, we’re all a little insane
But it’s so clear
Now that I’m unchained”
“Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time”
(Sweet Sacrifice – Evanescence)

“You should have known, the price of evil.
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call, everybody to fear.
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooooooooh It’s your fuckin’ nightmare”
(Nightmare – Avenged Sevenfold)

“This night is alive with the smell of insane
It’s reaching for me and its calling my name
I beg for silence to drown out their weep
How did this asylum become where I sleep”
“All my Questions get no answers
Locked up tight from the world outside me
(No,No)
Mommy come get me out tonight
All my Questions have no answers
I can feel the fear inside me
(No,No)
Mommy come get me out tonight”
(St. John – We Are The Fallen)

Happy Halloween!

Hi! As I said, I will blog all weekend, and since in Norway the time is just half past 11 in the evening, it’s still the 3rd of September.
Now, today’s song is Tear The World Down by We Are The Fallen. Published on the album with the same title, Tear The World Down, published in 2010. Lyrics here, and at least there’s sound in the video below:

Now, the long, almost forever-lasting intro is slow and nice, with lovely violin, making a nice transition into the rocking guitars and great drum work. I usually don’t comment the drums, but they’re pretty good here. The song, with it’s long intro, is a tad too long for my taste, as I need variation, and tend to get bad conscience when I switch song before the current is done. Anyways, need to make this short, if I’m gonna make the deadline (haha, like I really had one!). Like the use of choir in this song, like many of the other goth-songs (if you think this song belong under another genre, don’t be afraid to shout out!) they have, it makes it greater with a choir. (You hear it best in the end).
Another thing I like, is the great violin in this song. I love the combo of rocking guitars and aggressive violins.

“I suffer through through the shame, wishing hope would just abandon me till this is over. “
(Tear The World Down – We Are The Fallen)

Hey y’all! Really sorry I didn’t post anything yesterday, but my internet connection is equal to zero at my new place. Anyways, it’s time for a new song, and today’s will be Through Hell by We Are The Fallen. The song was published on 2010 on their album, “Tear The World Down”. The lyrics are easy to hear, but if you want them anyways, you can find them here. There’s no real music video for this song.

First I would like to say that the lyrics are really cool, and kind of dark, and suits well for a gothic rock song, for that kind of great playing. The use of a choir is neat, it makes the song more like a gothic song, I think. As I normally do, I will mention my love for guitar solos, and this one will be no exception. It’s good, but it’s too short, I think. They could have made more out of it. I like it anyways. Rocking guitars and pounding drums are some of the things that makes me like this genre. Really, it’s all just great.

“All my tears pull me through hell again”
(Through Hell – We Are The Fallen)
