about

AFTERSHOCK is a shattered love story for the apocalypse. Silicon Angels and Digital Demons battling in the streets. Heroes endlessly searching for themselves and their lost loves in a world bent on self regeneration through human extermination....

This is the first official full length release from Dallas cyberpunks SOLEMN ASSEMBLY. 13 tracks of post Industrial music with death rock and synth pop undertones.

Track Name: FALLING (SHED THESE WINGS)
I whisper your name across the room,
Our eyes meet then turn away...
I can see it in your eyes now,
The way you look right through me.

I follow you through the subway,
And under the neon lights....
I would follow you forever,
I would fall for you tonight...

I would shed these wings for you.
With all the love of Heaven,
I'd spend my days in Hell,
If only I could touch you,
I would shed these wings for you....

I watch you dance across the room,
Through shadows and candlelight....
The way you move like Angels....
the way you look tonight....

I reach out and try to touch you,
To feel your pale white skin....
But I could only touch your shadow,
And the heat from where you've been....

I would shed these wings for you,
With all the love of Heaven,
I'd spend my days in Hell,
If only I could touch you....
I would shed these wings for you.

Track Name: NO MEMORY
It's after midnight,
And I'm not sleeping....
Was it something i had said
That made you stop believing?

Every time I close my eyes,
I see you walk away from me,
And every time I close my eyes
I see you leaving me behind

The rain hits my windows so hard
Making it difficult to see
The signs are all there
But I'm too blind to read them

Every time I close my eyes,
I see you walk away from me,
And every time I close my eyes
I see you leaving me behind

When you go away
Leave no memories behind you
Take them all away from me
'Cause it's too hard to let you go....

My heart is empty now,
Just like the lonely streets outside,
I'm driving faster
But I can't find you downtown...
Looking out across the sky
I wonder where it is you go
And what you do when I'm not there
And Does it make you happy?

Every time I close my eyes,
I see you walk away from me,
And every time I close my eyes
I see you leaving me behind

When you go away
Leave no memories behind you
Take them all away from me
'Cause it's too hard to let you go.....

Track Name: OFF WORLD
So many lives
So little time
So go and wipe your eyes
To see through their lies

There's nothing left for us here
There's nothing left for us to fear
There's something in the sky
That's crashing down tonight

Time is running out
There's nothing we can do
So make the most of every moment
I have left with you
The walls are closing in
The Earth begins to move
They can't take away the time
I have left with you

So run away with me
Escape from this toxic city
So we can finally breathe
And watch as our world crumbles at our feet

Time is running out
There's nothing we can do
So make the most of every moment
I have left with you
The walls are closing in
The Earth begins to move
They can't take away the time
I have left with you

Track Name: AFTERSHOCK
Focused on what we believe
As life passes by,
We miss the days that we perceive
As the best of our lives
Where did they go?

When you stop yourself from dreaming
What have we become?
Open up your tired eyes
And look towards the sun
It's almost done...


When life turns upside down
And what you thought was real
Gets lost in all the AFTERSHOCKS
The whole world breaks apart
And it's your fault.....
When Life turns upside down
And what we thought was real
Gets lost in all the AFTERSHOCKS,
The whole world Breaks apart
And it's your fault.....

Stomping on the dance floor
Kicking punching pulling dreads
Killing all the rivetheads
Razorblades and switchblade knives
Dance the edge of shattered nights
Grinding on a zombie whore
