about

REVEL 9 Long Beach, New York

Somewhere between the catchy melodies of pop and the aggression of metal can be found the realm of today’s hard rock. REVEL 9 takes great care to blend the best from those two fan-heavy genres, and with that care, the band continues to deliver the hard-hitting, insightful and intense music that has solidified them as a staple in the Northeastern Hard Rock scene.

Track Name: What It Is
what it is

and here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
slowly we move and circle ourselves
nothing gets through and nobody else
touch me and make this whole
and here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
stumble and fall but stick to the plan
suffer it all as long as we can
trust me to break this hold
and here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
so here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
everything heals in spite of the pain
everything yields to the weight of the strain
but it’s so far away
and here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
so here’s where it ends
and it seems so what it is
for all that it is can never it be this again
Track Name: Quietmind (ft. Raiana from kHz)
quietmind

wide awake and still i wait here for a change
with every reason to pretend still so far away
and everything i lose reminds me all that was before
is just a whisper now
if all i do is wait for you i find
i slip into the quiet disillusion in my mind
while i wait for you i’ll find
all i do is wait for you and find…
hide away inside a thought or memory
with all these hours to befriend the empty that remains
and everything i choose to focus on for just a while
becomes a shadow now
if all i do is wait for you i find
i slip into the quiet disillusion in my mind
while i wait for you i’ll find
all i do is wait for you and find…
run away into a distant memory
rot away… just leave me here to be
and all i do is wait for you and i’ll find
i slip into the quiet disillusion in my mind
while i wait for you i’ll find
i slip away. i slip away inside
all i do is wait for you and find…
Track Name: The Good Fight
the good fight

can you tell who i am?
i think i used to know
long before this all began.
and all this time they stole what’s mine
and they left me here as the nothing i’ve become
and then…
please help me to breathe this one last time (hold on)
believe in me and i’ll try to make it through.
but i don’t think i can.
so this isn’t how we had planned.
still i need to know
that you’ll try to understand at all.
this heavy toll that tears my soul
away from me as they wrenched it from my hands
and then…
please help me to breathe this one last time (hold on)
believe in me and i’ll try to make it through.
but i don’t think i can.
so far from where this all began.
i guess i’ve done all that i can.
the thousand times a thousand eyes
have stared into the nothing i’ve become… amen.
please help me to breathe this one last time
believe in me and i’ll try to make it through.
but i don’t think i can.
i don’t think i can.
Track Name: Senseless Tragedy
senseless tragedy

i wait just tapping fingers on the floor
for, well, anything at all
i hate. and all the emptiness it thrives
on me now
such a senseless tragedy
thought there’d be more to me
than bow and leave the stage
as i slip right through the moments in my way and
as i step right through the motions that i make and
it was wrong, all along, never be, again
i’ll take these memories down from on the wall
so we can watch them burn
just wait and i’ll show you all that you have done
to make me now.
such a senseless tragedy
thought there’d be more to me
than bow and leave the stage
as i slip right through the moments in my way and
as i step right through the motions that i make and
it was wrong, all along, stupid me …again
let’s take a moment here to walk you through
so… you see it all
such a senseless tragedy
thought there’d be more to me
than bow and leave the stage
as i slip right through the moments in my way and
as i step right through the motions that i make and
i leave you to reflections in my wake
it was wrong, all along, never be, again
Track Name: Wailo
wailo

i don’t need a reason to leave this time
i still feel like you need me to fall in line
where’s this crime that i’m bleeding for?
do your time and just let it go
i just can’t breathe when you are near
but i’m much too weak to let you go
and in time if i can’t get out alive
i’m leaving way low
i must be going right out of my mind
i can’t seem to believe in the things i find
where’s this vice when i need it the most?
i’ll pay your price to just let it go
i just can’t breathe when you are near
but i’m much too weak to let you know
and in time if i can’t get out alive
i’m leaving way low
i just can’t breathe when you are near
but i’m much too weak to let you go
and in time if i can’t get out alive
i’m leaving way low
Track Name: Awake
awake

bear with me. i can’t imagine what could change
inside of me before i break
leave it be. it can’t concern me anymore.
all i see is never-ending.
i believe this could be tragic but it
seems to me, that no one cares about what
comes to be. it doesn’t matter all that much to
you. and me? and i’m miles before
i’m fast asleep. the chance to dream. i fall
await the world, embrace the years that fall
down on me.
wait with me. i may be slipping but i
still need to breathe. and all these miles before
i’m fast asleep. the chance to dream. i fall
await the world, embrace the years that fall
down on me.
fast asleep. the chance to dream. i fall
await the world, embrace the years that fall
down on me…
while i’m awake.
Track Name: Say
say

<hush>
i can’t breathe enough right now so maybe i’ll sleep for just a while
i can’t keep from loosing ground; fading away like a smile.
tell me from where you are now is it easy to see where it ends?
and i can’t believe just how wrong i was when i knew i’d see you again
say everything that you need to say to me now
and take all that you need to slow you down
and blame all that you need to stay with me now
before you go
<crush>
i can’t seem to hold this down; pulling away from the inside
and no one can make this easy to be right by your side
say everything that you need to say to me now
and take all that you need to slow you down
and blame all that you need to stay with me now
before you go
say everything that you need to say to me now
and take all that you need to slow you down
and blame all that you need to stay with me now
before you go
