about

Well it’s been a long train of fears,
parading on as I recall,
now stumbling up the mount of years,
soon I shall rise above them all !
My back is turned but still I hear,
the nether roar turn into jeer.
Thus moving on, slow and steady,
I keep an eye ever ready,
to spy on shapes hidden in clouds,
dancing like some infernal crowds.
The imps of murky infancy
or hazy teenage lunacy.
I used to shake; but now I feel bold,
musing o’er the SWEET GLOOM OF OLD !

about

Max&theSkraelingers Thoiry, France

Max&theSkraelingers is the story of a French guy struggling with suburban ennui, jamming alone in his room while dreaming of a vibrant local alternative scene. Started in 2008, this solo project came to life after some unsuccessfull band attempts. What Max does is recollect fragments of his life and try to polish them into something more epic than modern western middle class existence permits it. ... more

Track Name: This Perpetual Winter
It’s getting worse each passing day
heart’s beating number as I pray
for spring and warmth to thaw away
the ice cold dread freezing my veins
Don’t die too young, carry on
don’t despair
‘Hold on’ that’s all I’m being told
but every night gets colder
and I need more than just a cover
‘hold on’ that’s all I can be told
but every night gets blacker
and I need more than just a lighter
Obscurity is blinding me
and I’m scared
Won’t you forget my bitterness
this heart of mine can hardly melt
it’s gotten worse but that’s okay
winter has come she’s here to stay.
