about

Path of Desolation Lausanne, Switzerland

Long is the path to desolation and enlightnement. And lo! How much distance was covered by Swiss metallers PATH OF DESOLATION since their 2014 EP. Sharp riffs, melancholic melodies
and powerful vocals are the trademark behind these
gems of melodic death metal, evoking at times Dark Tranquility, In Flames or Insomnium.

Track Name: Rest In Your Fears
REST IN YOUR FEARS

Feelings I kept inside
Wishing that I was blind
Can't see the day, just the pain left inside
Never again now, to be full of content
Everything's gone away
Every glimmer turn to grey

Darkness has filled your heart
Rest in your fears, in the walls in your head, in the grey
Earth in flames, your world comes tumbling down
Though only I can see beyond your waking nightmares

No target to aim at
No road to tread now
I fumble like once before
I face my own contempt
Everything's right again
Every glimmer turn to grey

Darkness has filled your heart
Rest in your fears, in the walls in your head, in the grey
Earth in flames, your world comes tumbling down
Though only I can see beyond your waking nightmares

Wishing that I was blind, can’t see the day just pain inside
Desperate for choice, I take a turn for the worse
The tide is slow to come
Time has come
It's time for change

Feelings I kept inside
Wishing that I was blind
Can't see the day
Can't see the pain
Track Name: Soaked Jester
SOAKED JESTER

Help me be the fool
Sad, soaked jester
Play my role for me
Make them laugh when I need to cry
Hand me your mask
A tragic mask in empty seconds
Acts and scenes
Make me see, make me right

Fill the empty hours
Hide me with your mists
With your passion, with your poison

Fill the empty hours
Hide me with your mists
With your passion, with your poison

Set the stage, the curtain's on
Unheeded, I stumble through the props
Made of glass, ready to shatter
In a million shards
Bitter are the late hours
When you leave again
I feel your rush I feel this pain
More will come with the new day, with the new day

Make me lose my words
Leave me with your guilt, nothing's changed
Make me sick, make me weak

I dissolve, I vanish, melt into the crowd
Hide my past mistake with this new failure

I feel safe, forgotten... as long as you keep me warm
... as long as your warm
Track Name: The Word feat. Anna Murphy
THE WORD

Paint a new exit on a concrete wall
Sedate my will with decaying words
Another left turn, a new decoy
A trap built from scraps of philosophy
Another door wide shut

Walk. Follow. Walk.
Your holy routine.
The sake of brainless mass
Work your way, up the ladder
You'll never make it back

I weather every gathering storm
While worms find more and more to eat
But all they'll ever taste, is the void of sameness
You carve the thought into one flow
You stomp your past into your Word

Build! Assemble words, into empty cages
Construct! An icon of treason. A product of mass hysteria
Product! Of mass hysteria!

Sounds sentenced to nothingess
Prayers feeding a crowing crowd

Walk. Follow. Walk.
Your holy routine.
The sake of brainless mass
Work your way up the ladder
You'll never make it back

Walk. Follow. Walk.
Your holy routine.
The sake of brainless mass
Work your way up the ladder
... You'll never make it..
Down, down, down
