about

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: Active Shooter
Bitterness, another day, idle fate
City lights, post-meridian uselessness
Bar flies on lonely nights
Neglected streets, a homeless life
Drifting further, degeneration is at hand

Fading away
It's easier to go astray
Walking miles tonight
where urban darkness
has devoured the light

A wolfpack of lowlives
Like bees within their hives
A weapon in my pocket
to paint with lead these skies

Drifter on the loose
High on self-abuse
I wish you all drop dead
to stop this dog-days blues

I'll pave my way
Active shooter - Active shooter
It's my field day
Active shooter

A million lies, betrayed by youth, a bitter truth
The architecture of this farce crumbling down
Hands tied, blinded sight, you're in my trunk
Driving down the highway
There's something on my mind

Running away
You thought was easier to downplay
Driving miles tonight
where urban darkness
assassinates the light

The rise of a lowlife
A bee who's left its hive
The barrel at your head
will paint with blood these skies

Drifter on the loose
High on self-abuse
I wish you all drop dead
to stop this dog-days blues

I'll pave my way
Active shooter - Active shooter
It's my field day
Active shooter

One hell of a night
Nocturnal breeze smells fine
Watching the world go by
through the glass of my gunsight

Bitterness, another day, idle fate
City lights, post-meridian uselessness
A million lies, betrayed by youth, a bitter truth
The architecture of this farce crumbling down

A wolfpack of lowllives
Like bees within their hives
A weapon in my pocket
to paint with lead these skies

The rise of a lowlife
A bee who's left its hive
The barrel at your head
will paint with blood these skies

Drifter on the loose
High on self-abuse
I wish you all drop dead
to stop this dog-days blues

I'll pave my way
Active shooter - Active shooter
It's my field day
Active shooter - Active shooter
Track Name: Iris' House Pt. I
Wake up call
Counting off the days
Cruel fate, forced upon you
Unexpected countdown

"And when you thought
life was all set
Your family, your comfort zone
Your corner of joy..."

It grows within
Inbred therein
Gun pointed at your head
Sickness' next of kin
Let the news sink in
Accept that you're a has-been
Fighting uselessly
A battle you can't win

"And they're coming for ya
A stretcher to take you away
Words of solace
A comfy room to end your days..."

A hope for treatment
While you slowly die
A death foretold
Diguised by doctors' lies

"Life expectancy: less than 3 months
We'll try our best
Have faith in the research..."

It grows within
Inbred therein
Gun pointed at your head
Sickness' next of kin
Let the news sink in
Accept that you're a has-been
Fighting uselessly
A battle you can't win

A battle we won't ever win
Track Name: Iris' House Pt. II
White sterile rooms
Morphine silence
Numb and weak
Consumed by radiations
A shell of a man
awaiting the end

A quiet place for your last days
Staring at the ceiling
while your eyes look glazed
Not knowing when it will happen
Could be anyday
Floating beetwen life and death
in a drug-induced haze

No tomorrow
Life's sardonic turn
Cold and lonely
No loved ones will mourn
Lights are fading
Exhausted eyes roll back
The final chapter
Your body has collapsed

White coats surround you
Distant words
Muffled sounds
Another injection
Involountary smile
when chemicals set in

A quiet place for your last days
Staring at the ceiling
while your eyes look glazed
Flashes of your life
pass before your eyes
A last tear of regret
An unjust demise

No tomorrow
Life's sardonic turn
Cold and lonely
No loved ones will mourn
Lights are fading
Exhausted eyes roll back
The final chapter
Your body has collapsed

...'Til we all meet there at the Iris' House
Track Name: Distrust³
Distrust
Empty words, broken promises
Misleading eyes, a traitors' smile
Your fruitless crime

Swinging from a rope
at the gallows of belief
Watching while you turn and run
Another maggot comes undone

The more I grow old
The more I get wary of
your sickening kind
When I disappear
You should know the reason why
Look at the knives in my back

The more I grow old
The more I get wary of
your sickening kind
Since I disappeared
You should know you fucked up
You'd better watch your back

Distrust
Secluded life
Dodging your lies
Standing at a crossroad
I know well where to turn

I'm making enemies by now
I learned how to survive somehow
You blossomed through mediocrity
Like rotten seeds into concrete

The more I grow old
The more I get wary of
your sickening kind
When I disappear
You should know the reason why
Look at the knives in my back

The more I grow old
The more I get wary of
your sickening kind
Since I disappeared
You should know you fucked up
You'd better watch your back

Pain on repeat
Hellhounds on my trail
Nowhere to be found
On seas of distrust I sail

Poker-faced when shit hits the fan
An outcome so predictable
Your foulness comes in disguise
A parasite trying to feed off my pride

I already died
but no one realized it
Track Name: Nihilistic Estrangement
Cold frozen heart
Ascending to purity
Estranged

Leaving it all behind
The day when I shut my blinds
Closing you out
Cutting off the world outside
Walking out of the line
Bridges' burning times
I don't fit in, I don't comply

Last trip - Rebirth
Escapism through nihilism
Estrangement

Leaving it all behind
The day when I shut my blinds
Closing you out
Cutting off the world outside
Walking out of the line
Bridges' burning times
I won't fit in, I won't comply
My scornful flight

My elitist escape will leave a bitter taste
A nihilist escapes when all is going to waste
My elitist escape will leave a bitter taste
A nihilist escapes when all is going to waste
Track Name: RBMK
Staring into darkness
Unfathomable emptiness
The ghost of joy
rotting in the pit of abandonment
Waiting for my absence
Stranger to this world
A godly abomination, the monster I became

I curse your lives
and hope that all love dies
The cleansing of all human kind
I curse your lives
and hope that all love dies
To turn all smiles into hopeless cries

Take my pain and let it destroy you
Terminal disease of all that you cherish
A global tsunami of death
Submerging this failure called mankind

I curse your lives
and hope that all love dies
The cleansing of all human kind
I curse your lives
and hope that all love dies
To turn all smiles into hopeless cries

Bring forth the untimely end
