about

Fatum Aeternum Haifa, 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: Sadness
Fatum Aeternum
Hic somnus est mortuus
Populus qui ambulabat in tenebris
Vidit lucem magnam
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: False Freedom
Put your hands up in the air!
Let the modern culture eat up your mind!
We’re here for you, and we do care
About your soul, your money, your career and time.
Don’t be afraid of us!
We’re earning taxies to create the power you must obey!
We bring false freedom to the musses…
Wait a minute! What do you say?
I’m so tired of being spinning around and around!
And I am so blind! Seems like I am lost and never found!
I don’t feel fine!
We cannot change the world; we won’t even give it a try!
‘Cause if we do we’ll find all the things that we deny!

Who built my stearin world and gave to me my plasticine sword
Where did heat come from? And why it sounds like thousand animal farms?
Fe, Fa, Fou, Fam! The dragon comes to eat your brain
Too late to hide he is already here, no more time for you my dear!
He brings the forbidden fruit of temptation
But every temptation has got a human face.
He knows, just because you’ve tasted bread of salvation
You are so afraid to fall from grace.
I’m so tired of being spinning around and around!
And I am so blind! Seems like I am lost and never found!
I don’t feel fine!
We cannot change the world; we won’t even give it a try!
‘Cause if we do we’ll find all the things that we deny!
Track Name: Revelation
I remember how it happened
I lay naked, wrapped by serpent
Poor Adam and naive Eve have locked the door
But now I've got the key
Take me to the rock that higher than I am
Help me spread my wings and learn how to fly
Make my heart harder than steel
Let me follow Your own will
No more fear, no more pain
Pure water healed the deep wounds of shame
I feel the Power, I feel the Strength
And all those things that makes right order in my head
Take me to the rock that higher than I am
Help me spread my wings and learn how to fly
Make my heart harder than steel
Let me follow Your own will
Track Name: Alive
Slowly but surely we going to die
Drown in useless information surrounded by machines
Slowly but surely we forget how to fly
On the wings of emotions, in the sky of our dreams
We're locked in the cells of the huge human hive
Producing goodies for money
We're bites of information on the drive
Characters in the game (It's not that funny)

Sometimes we need to stimulate our brains
To see if we still can tell truth from lies
Sometimes we need to feel some discomfort and pain
To see if we are still alive

We can get no silence, we can get no rest
"Buy our products! You deserve the best!”
Throw your friends to our meat-chopper, and you'll get more points
Free calls and over virtual coins
Don't believe in God, believe in science
In money, lies and power of the violence
"Truth is out there!” but who needs the truth?
Can you give me some scientific proof?
Sometimes we need to stimulate our brains
To see if we still can tell truth from lies
Sometimes we need to feel some discomfort and pain
To see if we are still alive
Track Name: Sacrifice of Love
We’re living in the world of madness
Hide ourselves behind nick-names
Trusting social networking
Adoring loneliness and pain

Away, away from this morbid place
Brake down steeples of denial
And find yourself in real world
Accepting final sacrifice of love

Bleeding heart and broken nails
Sleeping pills and cut-up veins
Nothing can save you from your sadness
And virtual world that you create

Away, away from this wired place
Smash your computer against the wall
And find yourself in real world
Accepting final sacrifice of love

Away, away from this morbid place
Smash your computer against the wall
And find yourself in real world
Accepting final sacrifice of love
Track Name: Apocalypse Now
Tell me, what do you feel when you’re reading newspaper,
When you're turning on your TV?
When you hear the news on the local radio station
While eating your doughnut and drinking cup of tea?

Sometimes I want to close my eyes
Pretend there’s no bad news, no war outside.
Sometimes I want to pretend there’s no black and white,
No good, no bad people. No wrong and no right.

World is going down, there’s no escape
World is going down, let's have a stand and pray!
You can grow your flowers, drink your Champaign
But supernatural power destroy your world anyway.
Let's have a stand and pray!

Music, fashion, sex, drugs, corruption and violence,
Dirty politicians, and once again sex.
She was raped at sixteen, he was murdered at nineteen
Who knows, maybe we will be next?!

You say you need a perfect drug?
The perfect drug is already in you!
Beware of those, whom you trust
And of those who trust in you.

World is going down, there is no escape.
World is going down, let's have a stand and pray!
You can smoke your marihuana, sniff your cocaine
But supernatural power destroy your world anyway.
Track Name: Evidence
Love... Do we need a second chance?
Love... Why we always ask for confidence?
We used to praise morality
But since we're unmasked
Nasty tongues of sensuality
Proclaim Century of Lust

She said: We all need love, we know about it
Like a cold hand needs a glove, let’s talk about it
You think that love is interlacement
Of gases, tongues and hands
But I can prove that you're wrong
I have an evidence...

Love isn't locked in space and time
Love is always the same, but people are always blind
Can I grab your little attention
I'm trying to explain to you
That when we say “I love...”
It doesn't mean that we really do

She said that human love is a voracious eater
It needs our souls, flash and blood (You can not cheat it)
Love baths our bodies in the worm waters
Of the ocean of sex
But I can prove that you're wrong
I have an evidence...
Track Name: Resurrection of Me
Soft voice is saying: “Please Choose the Right Number”
Empty Faces with toothless smile are growing fungus
Bathing their hands in the sea of humanism and humanity

Silence... Silence is falling on me
The rests of human hypocrisy
This place is cursed, but somehow I’m still here
Hoping that Day of Salvation is near

Some say we live in last days
Some say we live in disgrace
Committing sin of intellectual masturbation
Beaten by almighty feast
Of modern urban disease
I hope one day you will see the resurrection of me

So what is lost and never could be found
Is dressed up fashionably and walking around
Screaming: “Let's hang unhappy love on the tree of sensuality”

Freedom... Do you know what real freedom is?
Think twice before you get down on your knees
Hey! Brand new victims of political lies
Brothers and Sisters thou shell be polite

Some say we live in last days
Some say we live in disgrace
Committing sin of intellectual masturbation
Beaten by almighty feast
Of modern urban disease
I hope one day you will see the resurrection of me
Track Name: Lullaby
Molly was a little girl
And her heart was cold as stone
And no one has realized
When the Molly’s heart turned from red in to pure black.

Awkward moving of Molly’s thoughts
Brings her the game she needs the most
Thoughts play football with Molly’s brain
Weeping loud: “Let’s go insane”

Don’t cry my little one
This cruel world won’t mention your tears
Be true to your self and leave all of your fears
Because flimsy walls always collapse

Sun is about to quit its daily race
But Molly is about to fall from the God’s grace
Sitting in the big black box
And playing with the hand made Voodoo Doll

Pricking over its ugly face
Someone has to pay for Little Molly’s disgrace
Even unhappy love can bring some joy
The Voodoo dolls are such breakable toys

Don’t cry my little one
We’ll turn your nightmare into fun
We’ll help you to spread your big black wings
Stop sitting alone in the kingdom of the fallen leaves

Run away from the pain
Run away from the shame
Run away from this world
Run away from all that hurts

Our Father in Heaven hallowed be Thy Name
Please save me from this magic, don't let me cast the spell
Track Name: At the End
Everything has its own beginning,
Everything has its logical end.
Some say that stones stay forever,
But even stones time turns to sand.
All what you think is so important for you:
All passions, fears, love and hate,
All your victories and disappointments
You'll leave behind the cemetery gates.
At the end…

All our life we keep on running, but to nowhere,
Like stupid dog that chases its own tail.
And at the end of our life we will discover
That all our lifetime we've spent in jail.
'Cause we are prisoners of our own ambitions,
Wishes and lust. And by the way,
Are you sure that all these things will be forgotten
On other side of cemetery gates?
At the end…
Track Name: Confession
I'm tired of searching for something
That could change my life
I think I know the place where I can find it
But I prefer not to go there, I don't know why
Sky is a mirror that bleeds sometimes,
And in its power to make me cry
But who is bleeding, me or the one in the mirror as I wave myself goodbye?

Seems like I'm taking wrong direction
Don't get me wrong, I don't complain about my life
I just want you to hear my confession
Without any hypocrisy and lies

My life looks like a chocolate creamy cake
But this cake has very bitter taste
You know it's hard to stay white and clean
If everything is drowned in the toxic waste
No I'm not searching for your mercy
I'm just a twenty-first century child
Charming and sexy, but lonely and broken
Proudly caring the burden of modern life

Seems like I'm taking wrong direction
Don't get me wrong, I don't complain about my life
I just want you to hear my confession
Without any hypocrisy and lies

I know I'm taking wrong direction
Don't take me wrong, I don't complain about my life
I just want you to hear my confession
Without any hypocrisy and lies
