about

Taken By The Sun Chicago, Illinois

Taken By The Sun are a Chicago metal band rooted in that city's doom and stoner metal traditions but devoted to moving those genres forward. At the core of their sound are fuzz-saturated guitars, grinding bass, cavernous drums, and dry-throated vocals; without a doubt the band is indebted to their venue-shaking, riff-worshipping Chicago metal peers. ... more

Track Name: Watch The Skies
watch the
skies above
we spoke
of the fallen
taking us
to the graves
with their weapons
of war
screaming
til they take us
back with them
ancient warriors
teaching us
the path to take
we are

watch the skies
theyve come
back for us
lie still
theyll
hear
all your cries
skulls crushed
blood from eyes
destroyer of worlds
sons of god

drawn
run away
again
drawn
run away
again
dont turn around
dont turn around
ahhh
dont turn around
dont turn around
ahhhh

From the ancients
we have become
from the ancients
we came from

Yahweh

theyre comming back
theyre comming back
theyre comming back
theyre comming back
Track Name: Maelstrom
As we condense
Just look from the top
The crimson horizon
The end of the clock

Desire
is all that you’ll live for
Violence
is all that you’ll bleed for

I’ve been envisioning, new shiny creations, resetting my eyes, ever doomed to control,
The all unknowing, the new sense of oblivion, bringing the new sphere, and expelling the old,
In caverns deep, I’ve been feeding on mercury, slowly burying Titans, under alluvial folds
All for a creator, who’s Almost a savior, harness War in the heart, spare no Blood on the bone

In darkness
Out of control
A new age
buried below

pressure

flames rising forth
Clear into the Fucking Sky
these angels
pierce our hearts
then die
A serpent
descends
the sky is wide and red
smoke covers all
Branded with plumes of fire

in the fire

just save me
just save me
save yourself

just save me
just save me
save yourself

now
As a man
of the end
Going across
Ready to ascend
Ripe new visions
A descent from the hive
Tempt me now
break open eyes
out of control

Going
Across
I ascend
I burn

burn
Track Name: Insomnus
I am
still awake
beginning
a slow death

falling through
my eyes

can you see
the damage done
eroding my body
till i die

beyond the ties of life
we trail on the path
to nowhere
never ending drag
into the pit of
dementia

and I never want to sleep again
and I
never want sleep again
and I

Never
sleep again
and I

downward
oh my God
down the way
down again
dying
