about

“The Darkest Hour”
This EP is a milestone to mark Fatum Aeternum’s persuasion of the doom and gothic path, reflected in both music and lyrics. This release consists of some old songs that never got to be recorded (although they’re known among the band’s public in Israel) and new versions of songs that previous recordings didn’t do them justice. The themes of the songs are both personal and social – shading light on the troubled existence of the individual in our modern world and its expansion to the whole society.

Fatum Aeternum Israel

Fatum Aeternum is an Israeli Crossover Metal band based on Gothic\Doom elements. The band balances on the verge of metal, this after a long musical journey among various genres. This long ride convinced the band to return to where it started – playing dark and atmospheric music, mostly resonating with the Gothic & Doom entourage. ... more

Track Name: Me
I’m lost between the wrong and right
Fighting same old voices in my mind
They say that I’m a looser, but please don’t be confused
There is no game of win or loose

Don’t touch me, don’t judge me
I’m human, but not like you
I’m not the walking cliché
I’m real, I’m true
And I can never be lonely
Just hate me or adore me
Don’t try to push me around
Or my fist will help you reach the ground!

Chorus:
Seems like my life is sort of fairytale
Not playing superhero. No! I’m not the one
Although my life’s full of bitter and sorrow
I’m always trying to have some fun
I just want to be me
I just want to be free
I just want to be me and free

I’m lost between the wrong and the right
Fighting same old demons in my mind
They say: my dear, believe it or not, you always get what you deserve
The key was thrown straight after the door was locked

I can never be lonely
Just hate me or adore me
Don’t try to push me around
Or my fist will help you reach the ground!
Don’t touch me, don’t judge me
I’m human, but not like you
I’m not the walking cliché
I’m real, I’m true

Chorus:
Seems like my life is sort of fairytale
Not playing superhero. No! I’m not the one
Although my life’s full of bitter and sorrow
I’m always trying to have some fun
I just want to be me
(You can make me feel)
I just want to be free
(You can make me feel)
I just want to be me and free
(You can make me feel – younger again!)
Track Name: Hate
He woke up early in the morning
With tones of dead thoughts running through his skull.
This new day will bring absolutely nothing, same as the last one.
So, he is taking a towel,
And he is going to the bathroom looking at the mirror
But the mirror is spitting to his face.
He feels something grows at the depths of his heart:
The feeling that defeats human race.
Hate! What a moronic word!
But this word has built our modern world!
Our modern world?!
I hate to say it but hate is the feeling that we've created!
He hates:
"Nine to five" working, taxes & depression,
Offensive yelling of his boss, the irony in the eyes of his neighbors
And the barking of their fat & stupid dog!
And no one understands why it happens to him,
Why he has got to live in hate?
See, he was "smart" enough to realize he’s not a loser,
But he always blames somebody else for his mistakes
Hate! What a moronic word! But this word has built our modern world!
Our modern world?!
I hate to say it but hate is the feeling that we've created!
Track Name: Dive with Me
Horrible vision, bad decision,
You're once again behind the trust.
Hope is dying sadly smiling
Reflecting visions from the past

Hope is dying, you're justifying
That your worst nightmare did came true
Horrible vision, bad decision,
You have to handle all those things you're going through
Chorus:
Don’t take the blame or wear robe of shame
You're half man that you can be
Don't afraid to get closer to the ocean of emotion
So take my hand and dive with me.

Useless living, screaming deads
Wounded bodies, cut of heads.
Who was first, became the last
No one can escape this path.

Chorus:
Don’t take the blame or wear robe of shame
You're half man that you can be
Don't afraid to get closer to the ocean of emotion
So take my hand and dive with me.

C-part:
Water, water polish sand
Take us to the Promised Land.
Drops of blood became thy wine
Opened eyes
No one's blind
Track Name: Pain (Piano Version)
Verse I:
You always try to be so smart
But couldn’t break my heart with your tears, tears
It’s almost a decade since you are gone
Thanks god there’s no slot in my heart for any fears, fears
Chorus:
Nothing will resurrect the dead old tree
In the great desert of sensuality
And if you spent your life in vein
Nothing left but the pain
Verse II:
It was written in the books
No matter how you try there’s nowhere for you to hide, hide
The trampled down flower of youth
I wish I could stay here by your side, side.
Chorus:
Nothing will resurrect the dead old tree
In the great desert of sensuality
And if you spent your life in vein
Nothing left but the pain
Track Name: Nothing
Have you ever tried to find a familiar face in a crowd of strangers?
Have you ever looked in the mirror, hoping to see there someone else?
Ever tried to catch a song, slipping through your trembling fingers?
Ever craved to shout “I love you”, even though no one cares?

Chorus:
Find your face, find yourself
Clear the doubts of who you are
Wash your tears in morning rain
Before you’ll be hopelessly gone

Ever found yourself alone in a bar, asking “What am I doing here”?
Ever faked a wooden smile beyond anger fences?
Have you ever masked your hate under the cover of cold fear?
Have you tried so many expressions, that left you completely faceless?
