OraTorio Undead must collectively thank under threat of reproach: Christus, Those Who are Dead, and our families for all the time, encouragement, sweat, (some sacrificial blood), and tears it took for two brothers and an old skeleton to realize a vision. To David Gardner for his creativity designing the OraTorio Undead logo, and Léon Theremin for opening the door and allowing us, and so many others to walk through. All hail the Sons of Sarnaak Doomsayer Chanters for traveling so far, and through such terrible danger to be with us.

Scott believes it wise to recognize: Jessica. I will always be both overjoyed and saddened a beautiful girl like you fell in love with a monster like me. Thank you for all the time you allowed me to take from you. I love you. To Blake and Zaine, who gave up many Nerf wars and video games to make this album reality, thanks fellas and I will make it up to you. To Mom and Dad for all the love, encouragement, patience, and guitar lessons. To John Powell for the equipment that allowed us to pull this off, and to FL Studios for making recording software that doesn't make me want kill anyone. Thanks to D'Addario for making the best strings I have ever played, Bakersfield picks, (I miss you guys), and shout out of bad form to Jim Dunlop, who shut them down. To Yamaha for making the Eterna, to Scott for giving him to me, and to the nation of Cuba for bringing us together. A huge thanks to my original fans who have been with me since the days of Pop Kulture Rebellion, and Durge, (thank you also for allowing me to completely re-envision some of my old pieces). Another to everyone who gave me their time to listen to the rough tracks and give me their honest opinion. A "Thanks for the jams" to all the rockers I have made sound with over the decades, Matt, Spike, Jon, John, Brady, Joel, Jeff, Doug (C. Jackstreets), Zack, Dave of the Dead, Jake, and so many others, in no particular order. Thanks for the grand memories, and sorry I am so hard to work with... Thanks to some of my many inspirations, men of muse, Peter Steele, Johnny Cash, Dan Fogelburg and women who conjure up the earth, Melora Creager, Tori Amos. Finally, but far from least, thanks to Ian for taking this journey with me, and not only listening to, but actually acting on my wild ideas.

Ian feels it is necessary to thank: Scott and my family, extended and close, for letting me live my dream. Your encouragement has always been something that helps me get through tough times. Dr. Crane for his countless hours of piano lessons, you opened music up to me. Image-Line for creating FL Studio, you are a phenomenal company with amazing products. Many thanks to John who taught everything he knew about mixing. Thank you to these Freesound users (without your samples our vision would have been impossible): hazure, erh, dj-chronos, davidworksonline, manda-g, suonidgenova, cgeffex, juskiddink, inchadney, adough1, rmutt, freesound21, dasdeer, orbitalchiller, soundmary, fewes, richardemoore, sclolex, eguaus, and brunoboselli.

about

OraTorio Undead Mansfield, Ohio

We believe in the raw, ethereal power of music. Our passion is the dark, and the beautiful, the strange, and terrible. To us, song is the last sorcery, and we weave our incantations of muse to give life to the dying, and to speak for those now gone. We are OraTorio Undead... ... more

Track Name: Bonesong (Where We Go)
I
Where we go, where we go, where we go
Where we go, where we go, where we go
To dust and bones
Where we go, where we go, where we go
Track Name: More
I
Come here
It's not that bad
Though time betrayed you
Time betrayed me too

I'd suit your needs
And be your perfect man
Given the chance to hurt you
Like nobody ever has

II
Cause I want
More
Oh, of this I'm sure
I want more
More

III
Life has sucked
All the air
Out of my lungs
Left for dead and breathless
Come fill me with your love

The kind for lifetimes
And six feet underground
The kind Forever
And ever

IV
Cause I want
More
Oh, of this I'm sure
I want more
More
Track Name: Deep Down in the Deep Down Deeps
I
There is a place
Hidden beyond mortal sight
Bind me in chains
Lead me through mountain paths
To where darkness intertwines
With each cavernous space
With each trick of my mind
With each suspicious sound

Take me down...

II
Deep, deep, deep, deep, deep
Down
Deep, deep, deep
Down

III
There is no hope
No way of likely escape
Abandoned in shame
Stumbling down unknown paths
Ever deeper into black heart
As righteousness recoils
As each glint of cursed stone
As knees sink to cold ground

Take me down...

IV
Deep, deep, deep, deep, deep
Down
Deep, deep, deep, deep
Down

V
Imprisoned and truly alone
Twisted roots form a cage above
Could I have rescued myself?
Possessing the will to turn
These burning feet around
Track Name: Crum Crow Presents: OraTorio Undead performing, "The Dream"
Phase I: Insomnia
I can never sleep
All these troubled thoughts they come to me
And I’m afraid they’ll spoil my dreams
When I lay down
And try to sleep
When I lay down
And try to sleep
Oh, I will barely breathe
As lying coffin deep I let true darkness cover me
My Nightmares lie in wait like eager thieves
When I lay down
And try to sleep
When I lay down
And try to sleep

Phase II: Invitation to the Dream
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh, oh
Come with me
Into the dream
Oh come with me
Into the dream!
Woah, oh, oh
Come on
Woah, oh, oh
Come on
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Come on!


Phase III: Transformation
Unearthed into the light
Unearthed into new form
Unearthed into the hunt
Oh, with each bite of our Bloodmoon desire
Unearthed into the fire
Oh, unearthed into the stars
Oh, unearthed into new life
With each bite of our Bloodmoon desire
Unearthed into the light…

Phase IV: Eclipse
So another heart is slowly beating down the hours
Take me to that place that you once knew
Now as our lamps die out a shadow stalks the room
Accents the steps of our impending truth
You I know, oh, oh
And it shows, oh, oh
Misunderstanding breeds a beast within the soul
The path was wrong and then not there at all
Deny these chimes of change
Pretend we’ve time to waste
As we await our savior from the grave
You I know, oh, oh
And it shows, oh, oh
Sweat still fresh upon her shimmers boldly in the night
Sing songs to conjure spells of grand design
In my mind
In…my…mind…

Phase V: At Last
In my mind, I’ll always see
You there reaching out
To me
Oh, was I just
Oh, just chasing the dream
Just chasing the dream
Chasing the dream, dreamin’
Chasing the dream, dreamin’

Phase VI: As Morning Dawns
When I am calm
Here in the dark
I palm my these shards
Like fledgling sparks
I’ll see you then
When I sleep again
Cause all dreams hide
With morning’s light…

Phase VII: Farewell to the Dream
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
The dream is gone, oh, oh, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
The dream is gone
Woah, oh, oh
The dream is gone
Woah, oh, oh
The dream… is… gone!
Track Name: Let This Be My Epitaph
I
Bury me, in an unmarked grave
Deep beneath the soil
Lay my head down adored with broken crown
Never to rise again
