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: Entombed By Winter
Observe the snow under which I lie with empty eyes
Losing life, remembrances of cries
Frozen images of last sick days
The forceless body hanged shows me ill-fated ways

Recalling desolation, no one cried my death
The acrid taste of rotting takes my breath away
My violet lips covered with frost
The paleness of those walls is lost...
It’s fucking lost

The winter grows cold
It takes me into the frame of dust and old
The silence in me...
Please Death set me free

Fallin’ upon my buried coffin
the snow freezes my last smile
And the tears are crystallized
But the pain remains in me

Still and cold and dead
My body lies under the ground
A withered flower falls on me
Upon the ice of my grave

Entombed By Winter...

Memories of life, times lost in my mind
Ages of a forgotten existence, so far now
Dusty shells of pictures buried by years
Tell me who I am
Tell me how to see my dawn...
Tomorrow...

Were we born to struggle and suffer?
Happiness is a short while
Where we forget to be humans
Hate is only a waste of time
The cold is growing, end of days
Hold my body and take me far away
Far away from this grave of frost

We must enjoy these moments of inhumanity
Before they take our dream away...

Entombed By Winter
Track Name: Solitude Ways
Last night I walked again that soil,
places in my mind
Remembrances as cold pieces of glass
Blood red stained mirrors
lie broken upon the floor
A time so far - Something we can’t recall

I’ll take your hand towards the night
where our souls will be as one
I can’t describe the day
when we crossed our solitude ways

Deserted houses - Haven of mine
Tombs under eternal fog and frost
The pool of blood is turning cold,
as we watch our reflection
becoming red as December's dusk

I’ll take your hand towards the night
where our souls will be as one
You’ll never cry alone in the rain
The sleep will heal our solitude days

They’ll never live the meaning of parting
Souls left alone in the night
as tears flow with the pain

Loneliness, coldness and bloodlust
Alcohol, razorblades and the same old places
Blood, tears and semen
the only human things will be left of me?

I love the night as I love your eyes
You’ll burn inside the cold lands of my heart
Our way together towards inhumanity
Our dreams without any God above

I’ll take your hand towards the night
where our souls will be as one
We’ll never cry alone in the rain
Only Death now could divide our solitude ways
Track Name: Steal My Corpse
[Lyrics not available]
Track Name: No Way Out
Darkness enshrouded from within
Bitter rest in overwhelming solitude
Sleeping aeons and mountains
To conceal the tearing grief

A human life is not worth more
Than a tear stolen in a frozen dawn
(Than) a drop of blood on a yellowed paper
(Than) a shiver in the sharpened rain

No way out of this terror
Distance like an empty winter night
Pieces of me randomly scattered on the floor
Shrieks of dying animals inside my soul

Trapped among the mortal ones
My mourning is in vain
Unveiled dreams have turned to nothing
Fed on the wrecks of unanswered questions

A human life is not worth more
Than a tear stolen in a frozen dawn
(Than) a drop of blood on a yellowed paper
(Than) a shiver in the sharpened rain

No way out of this terror
Distance like an empty winter night
Pieces of me randomly scattered on the floor
Shrieks of dying animals inside my soul

Silence is trembling, screaming its rage-
Screaming...

No Way Out
Track Name: Disheartenment
Lying in a dark corner
The black candle light is dying out
Trying to refuse this suffering
As coldness burns my pale naked flesh

I faced my fears a thousand times
Endless doubts - Life of paranoia
I try to find a way out
From this state of suicidal urge

I watch with empty eyes the blade
As tears begin to fall down my face
Another night alone with myself
At one with melancholy and depression

I bleed because the dark is near
I cry as I realize you can’t be here
I need to caress your skin in the night
But now my only friend remains this knife

Why must I live with these fears?
I know my only tragedy is my mind
Sometimes I think I’m wasting all the joys
And with this bitter thought I fear to die

I feel so jaded now, so far away
I can’t face next morning with this pain
Another cut lacerates my flesh
Sometimes I think it will be the last

I’m only trying to objectivate this hate
I prove towards myself and life itself
I only need to watch these fifty wounds
I opened upon my body in the night

I only need to stop these sick death thoughts
And cry for joy when you’ll be here again
I’ll watch you sleeping naked at my side
I’ll kiss you and this blood will stop to flow

Everyone can kill himself one day
Life brings pain and suffering on our way
Cut your wrists, it’s simpler than it seems
But in death you’ll know...
Disheartenment fucking wins
