about

Arioc's first public release is a hard hitting three song ride showcasing the technical prowess and musical variety they bring to the world of music. Starting off the set, A New Beginning is a 9-min ride through an epic intro, a set of amazing chorus vocals, and complicated instrumental sections ending in a mosh-worthy headbanging breakdown outro. White Walls showcases Arioc's melodic writing as a slower ballad, more radio and pop-listener friendly than the rest of their tracks on the album (but certainly no less epic). Lastly, Symphony of Demise takes listeners on a 5-part journey into the world of clowns and midways (and a crazy madman trying to trap his audience with his own composed music!). Symphony of Demise brings forth the heavier side of Arioc with plenty of rhythmic guitar riffs and a similar number of changing time signatures and tempos. You will not be left disappointed with the madness that is Arioc!

Track Name: A New Beginning
Shout to the Heavens
Are you giving in now
drop to your knees
Put your fist to the ground
His prescence surrounds you
Yet you feel alone
Darkness closes
seeks to seize your soul

In your mind comes the worst of fears
In Memories come the pain and tears
You think you rethink, you think again
The past that you have is not your friend (not your friend)

In the night I hear a new song
Rising, calling out my name
Piercing through the darkest
Memories of mistakes, I've made
A second chance a new beginning without vain
Pressing onward the scars they still remain


In mind in your thoughts in your dreams in your head
You are lost and abused and confused twisted
You can't escape filled with hate, clouded mind
Filthy fool broken down, left behind

Comes back to haunt you everyday
Self consuming thoughts eat you away
Stuck in reverse you go round and round
The pain of silence is the only sound (the only sound)

In the night I hear a new song
Rising, calling out my name
Piercing through the darkest
Memories of mistakes, I've made
A second chance a new beginning without vain
Pressing onward the scars they still remain

In the night I hear a new song
Rising, calling out my name
Piercing through the darkest
Memories of mistakes, I've made
A second chance a new beginning without vain
Pressing onward the scars they still remain
Track Name: White Walls
White walls, dark prison cells
locked away, nobody cares
trapped inside my thoughts again
freedom to think, but none listen

Insanity echoes through the halls
the crazed thoughts, the silence draws
only the weeping breaks the stillness
only the memories keep me dreaming for me

Free to roam these empty skies
these thoughts repress my clouded mind
and even through the wind and fury
I still keep my sanctuary

Forced pills bring muddled thoughts
erasing all, I've made myself
Strapped down I try to fight
they lock me up and bind me tight

Fighting to regain myself
sedated I'm an empty shell
In my shattered mind I scream
In a faint whisper, I cry out, for help

Free to roam these empty skies
these thoughts repress my clouded mind
and even through the wind and fury
I still keep my sanctuary

Free to roam these empty skies
these thoughts repress my clouded mind
and even through the wind and fury
I still keep my sanctuary

White walls, dark prison cells
locked away nobody cares

Only the memories keep me dreaming [for more]
Track Name: Symphony of Demise
I. Allure

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls
Step right up for the greatest show on earth
Something You'll never forget
I guarantee it.

Welcome to my world of fear,
Please step inside
Whats with the caution in your eyes
I've got nothing to hide
Please take your seats for the show
But only if you're sure
As part of the cast let me assure you,
Its a show worth dying for

II. Illusion

Smoke and mirrors, Its getting clearer
Flashing lights and laughs surround me
Magic and trickery this slight of hand I now can see
Like taming lions the trapeze I fly on
Its all because of me

I created music with my own two hands
This beautiful Symphony of Demise
This music is now shackles that bind me
To a world of, self-creation

Stuck, now you're with me in my own game
Lost yourself to an endless dream
Behind beauty is where evil lies
Its a shame the music is louder than our cries

Stuck, now you're with me in my own game
Lost yourself to an endless dream
Behind beauty is where evil lies
Its a shame the music is louder than our cries

III. Subduction

Pulling you deeper, I feel you near
Coming to greet me your pain and your fear
Driving you deeper, into the void
You can not resist definance destroyed

This world I've composed
your mind will decompose
there is no hope
Your weakness I can see drive you into insanity
I hear your pleas see misery, lasting for eternity!

This song has sealed your fate
For all of your years
An everlasting hell
of pain and of tears

IV. Entanglement

I created music with my own two hands
This beautiful Symphony of Demise
This music is now shackles that bind me
To a world of, self-creation

Stuck, now you're with me in my own game
Lost yourself to an endless dream
Behind beauty is where evil lies
Its a shame the music is louder than our cries

Stuck, now you're with me in my own game
Lost yourself to an endless dream
Behind beauty is where evil lies
Its a shame the music is louder than our cries


V. Submission

Calm, your fears
Its safe, in here
Behind, the walls
Of my creation
Don't hesitate
Its far too late
Ignore your faith
My song has sealed your fate

Now you are mine
