juanguidi What I can say now? just confirm what I stated before...Andrew is one of the most versatile and interesting musician I've heard in the last 20 years.A sincere genuine and very inspired work.As connoisseur of dark/new wave/post punk music I only can say that my expectations were not disappointed at all..I didn t know Alex' voice and I find it very interesting and intriguing.Pity don t have such bands like theme here in Europe to see alive to create a sort of fan club to support them.Love them!xxx

blind 03:52
You asked me needing to be heard A situation becoming quite absurd The endless turning of a wheel with no destination The object of your fascination This is the last time The thought of you occurs in my mind Your false reflection My vision gone leaving me blind I see you in your empty world Your plans lay before you now unfurled All your false pretenses now are so apparent How sad you're so transparent This is the last time The thought of you occurs in my mind Your false reflection My vision gone leaving me blind

electric 03:31
Past the broken glass, of a life long passed The memories in your mind will leave you blind Faded edges, turn the pages Your story's not yet told, let it unfold Take a look inside yourself, what did you find So much strength and passion, leaving you so blind Look beyond the broken walls There is a light at the end of the falls You're living with regret, of the time we met Stop looking to the past for answers Take a look inside yourself, what did you find So much strength and passion, leaving you so blind Look beyond the broken walls There is a light at the end of the falls

lost 03:04
I feel the urge to get away I need to run if only for one day The cracks, are showing on the surface I live a life searching for a purpose And then I realize all I've lost I understand my life has had its cost Can I go back in time Will you share, will you share my crime A lifetime lost and so uncertain It makes no difference, we share this burden A walk in a park, a view of a tree This love was left, these fields we flee And then I realize all I've lost I understand my life has had its cost Can I go back in time Will you share, will you share my crime These threads wear thin and start to break How much more of this can I take And then I realize all I've lost I understand my life has had its cost Can I go back in time Will you share, will you share my crime

shatter 03:47 video
Give me my time Will I ever tell the lies we lived A crash on the water, leaving me blind A final walk to the altar Your soul so blind And all these words, get in our way Broken thoughts, we go our separate ways What did you ask me, where did we leave A final thought I hear your cries call out Yet I don't listen anymore These foolish games have had their place Why have we wasted so much time, a soul unkind And all these words, get in our way Broken thoughts, we go our separate ways What did you ask me, where did we leave A final thought

strange land 04:02
Give me your time, drag yourself away I pulled myself from the ashes, avoiding your dismay Keep your petty thoughts and all your empty words Your reign is over, my truth will now be heard How did it come so far these empty lights what do they mean Avoiding all the costs We ride the line of a broken dream Avoiding your fall, I sit amongst these waves On the edge of the water, we come crashing into seas Strange man in a strange land, a feeling of uncertainty I see your steps alone, in the sand Looking for that, final clarity An echo of bells drowned out by the voices of disdain How did it come so far these empty lights what do they mean Avoiding all the costs We ride the line of a broken dream

crash 04:08
A fading memory of a life once lived A silent whisper of a promise unfulfilled So many words we left unspoken Our hopes and dreams now lie shattered and broken Where were you when the lights went out Where were you when our ship went down Where were you when we needed to be saved Our bodies broken crashing on these endless waves A sordid past we can not escape Our future lies in the hands of fate I see the final rays of light slowly fade With remnants on this blade your actions have been weighed Where were you when the lights went out Where were you when our ship went down Where were you when we needed to be saved Our bodies broken crashing on these endless waves

The leaves are falling An echo of your face I still hear you calling I miss your sweet embrace Your solemn vow, where did it lead you What happens now Are all your hopes just shattered on the floor Telltales of the heart are better left unspoken Should have known from the start, how all your dreams were broken These moments crash and burn They couldn't last forever Your fate took a turn A meaningless endeavor Your solemn vow, where did it lead you What happens now Are all your hopes just shattered on the floor Telltales of the heart are better left unspoken Should have known from the start, how all your dreams were broken

dead within 03:27
Give me death or give me life Another chance I'm here through all this strife I never felt this cold and empty Never to be heard I've reached this place, dead within A feeling so absurd All these walls they scream at me I walk through empty halls I failed to wait and see Give it a final take, let it all pass by No more, goodbye All the walls they scream at me I walk through empty halls I failed to wait and see Give me a final turn, where did it bring me Take me where it yearned, please let me be
10.
My mind tip toes A wind blows so cold A sudden hush across the Valley My soul exposed though the alley I feel this, I need this Can you not receive this You need me, you keep me This loneliness it feeds me A change in motion Your soul, it glows From the furthest reaches of your mind I see your sadness, a look from a creature so unkind All that I've known, all that I've tried This crazy life not exemplified The future is vast, nothing to hide Will the darkness last, please kill my pride

ghosts 04:00
A basic need for self-reflection Constand reminders of our days long passed I seem to lack my own direction These memories were never meant to last Suddenly I feel the distances that last forever Suddenly I feel the hopelessness we won't remember Suddenly I feel our hopes pushed to the side left to forget I try to reveal these endless cries I start to flip through all these pages A slew of faces forgotten through time These ghosts will drift through the ages May the gods forgive us all our crimes Suddenly I feel the distances that last forever Suddenly I feel the hopelessness we won't remember Suddenly I feel our hopes pushed to the side left to forget I try to reveal these endless cries

about

"Into The Fire", the debut full-length album from Hallowed Hearts. Evoking the spectral fire of the 80's, filtered through the dystopian lens of 2020, "Into the Fire" is eleven tracks of stunning, memorable post-punk. Singer Alex Virlios (Blue Images) takes us through a winding journey of love and loss, while producer Andrew Sega (Iris) paints a three-dimensional canvas of angular guitars and distorted ambiences.

Pre-release singles "Lost" and "Shatter" quickly made it onto the playlists of international DJ's around the world. Asked about the writing process, singer Alex Virlios describes how they're the memories evoked by the music. "I would sit down with a song and it would kinda write itself. Little tales of fact and fiction that came to life while on various excursions and adventures, throughout my travels to various places around the world".

"We're trying to bring a different perspective to the post-punk renaissance that's happening right now, " Andrew adds. "We've taken all these disparate influences, from Pink Turns Blue, Sisters, 80's bands like Simple Minds, Brian Eno, modern bands like Drab Majesty, and unconsciously followed them where they told us to go." The end result is something that sounds simultaneously classic and revelatory, difficult to pinpoint on a timeline.

"... Lost showcases a sound inspired by the classic sounds of post-goth acts like Fields of the Nephilim and The Sisters of Mercy with the modern sensibilities of Drab Majesty" - Regen Magazine
