Forgotten Tomb Piacenza, Italy

Born in 1999 as a occult Black Metal band, FT became mainly popular for being among the true originators of the Depressive Black Metal subgenre (later stylized as DSBM) with its first 3 classic albums "Songs To Leave", "Springtime Depression" and "Love's Burial Ground". Later on the band explored increasingly wider territories, mixing their trademark sound with Rock, Sludge and Punk overtones. ... more

Track Name: Malus Vivendi Pt. I (Intro)
Track Name: Kill Life
Die for me - I'll swallow all your pain
Kill me - Release me from this strain
Feel it - You are going to be forgotten
Taste it - The hand of unforgiveness

I injure myself
Searching for a way out
In my eyes you see
The horror of being alive

Cry for me - I need this pain to live
Hate me - I feed on your own sickness
Breathe it - The stench of self-destruction
Love it - It's the only thing that's left to you

I watch my blood flowing out
You feel your tears running down
Hold my wounded flesh now
I'm the last thing you crave for

Life is pain
We're doomed to destroy another one
Who stands in our way
'cause we were born under a cursed star

You wanted to suffer
But I need a last relief
I need to bleed
I need to kill life

I need to kill life
Track Name: Alone
Once again life is killing me
This time I know there's no way back
Left alone, abandoned
Without any chance in tomorrow

You're gone forever
As I try to find a reason for this
Endlessly wondering why
You burned away all I was living for

Remembrances are all I still own of you
As I lie in my bed, drunk, confused
Flashes of our past passing before my eyes
Just like dying, endlessly dreaming of you

Dreaming of forgotten words and smiles
Trying to push away the need to harm myself
I feel is growing deep inside of me
I feel I will have to carve this pain upon my skin

Loneliness arises from the past
I will not bear this torment longer
As I try to hide the painful tears
Frustration increases in my soul

Reminding when I felt so high
Feeling nausea in my lungs, suffering
I try to sleep to heal this madness
But this bed now seems to be like my tomb

Now I know it's all too late to save me
I keep on dreaming of past years
I can't feel that warmth anymore
You turned my existence in a terminal disease

I know all I once called life ends today
As you disappear forever, flying far away
All emotions inside of me are dead and gone
I can't stand this silence, but now I'm alone
I'm alone

Where have you gone when I needed you?
Never again
Track Name: Malus Vivendi Pt. II (Intermezzo)
Track Name: Love's Burial Ground
Tonight I dreamed it again, the place where I constantly wander
So far and wrapped in darkness
It stands as the incarnation of my obsessions

My soul is leaving my body once more
As I enter those wretched ancient walls
Corridors of post-mortem existence
I breathe the evilness of dark deserted rooms

Tears falling from my eyes as I walk towards the stairs
Haunted by something I can't perceive
A house built on my utter negativity

Last visions of a fullmoon, the frozen nighttime wind
I lose myself through those endless dungeons

Take me away, take me there where I'm born
Embrace me in your inhuman angst

The smell of distant places in my dreams
Nostalgia, take me home...
Track Name: Slave To Negativity
Frozen and still I stand
Through these rooms of emptiness
The void in my hands once more
Awaken to see another day of greyness

Armless and numb
All emotions now are gone
I burn another page
From the book of my memories

The way I follow has no return
I'll face this journey alone
In every night and in every breath
You'll drown in the wastelands of my soul

No other words are left
No reasons to explain
My scorn as a farewell message
Only silence now remains

Surround me in Your cold dead embrace
Rape my spirit with Your divine sickness

Blind is my soul, I sold You my life
My faith shines in every wound
Fanatical cynicism leads my way now
We're nothing but tools under Your eternal spell

My true belief -
Slave to Negativity
Track Name: Forgotten Tomb MMIII
Let me die alone in darkness
Shunned by the light
Misanthropic death
Ignore the past life

No more visions of tomorrow
Dreaming the death - A tomb in the fog
A cold tombstone
Forgotten by everyone


Leave me alone - Let me follow the path to nothing
Through the Lands of Inhumanity I'll wander
The black candle light is dying (out)
I can see the blackened beauty of death
Forget me - I'll miss myself in the void


I am alone now
Only the dark listens to my words
Forget me
Track Name: Malus Vivendi Pt. III (Outro)
