about

TerminUs is the first Deimos' release and it's totally self-produced. All band members worked hard on all aspects of their five-tracks EP, to have a detailed and refined product. The result is a very incisive style in which all band members poured their influences: from '80s metal, to power, to progressive; thus Deimos trademark was born.

The recording process began in 2011, but the writing process started at the end of 2009, when Federico Lanterna, guitar player, composed 4 out of 5 tracks for the EP, finally putting into action the band's common goal: write Deimos' own original music.
Back in 2009 the band still was a Gamma Ray tribute, the first and only one in Italy, with gigs and fan-base all over the north of Italy.

TerminUs was self recorded and produced by Santo Clemenzi, bass player, and the rest of the band. The sound of the EP and the overall outcome exceeded the band's expectations. All 5 tracks have been mixed by Santo Clemenzi in his home studio, using free softwares for the most part: believing in Open Source and free software, TerminUs is living proof that professional and high quality results are totally possible for self-produced and independent projects.

The album features great musicians as guests: Chris Caffery (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Savatage) who played a killer guitar solo on "Gates Of Babylon"; Raffo Albanese (From The Depth, 5th Element, E.X.S.) as lead singer on "Stonetears"; Antonio Pecere (Betoken, Rapid, Fire) as lead singer on all the other tracks; Paola Gemma (Lisa meets Jack, Beggars Farm) lead vocals on "Locked Heart" in a dramatic duet with Antonio.

Great enthusiasm awaits TerminUs, expectations growing thanks to the release of "Stonetears" and "Locked Heart" as first singles: available for online free download or streaming on the most important online music distribution channels and social networks.The band is working hard every day to promote its first EP, expand its fan base and audience worldwide.

As Deimos believe in music above music business they also plan to release TerminUs for free, streaming online, for a long time.

The band is currently working on recording and producing new songs for their next full lenght album. TerminUs is just the beginning!

Track Name: Wargreed
Flyin' through space
Enslavin' disciples
In fire and terror I ride
Millenniums of wars
I spread among brothers
Their death's my honour and pride!

Come praise my name
Kill in my temples
I'm bringer of famine and fire
Dark ancient curses
Burn in my hands
Kneel at my altars or die!

Here I have come
To rot down your worlds
Your death and fears are my life...
Ares' my name,
Lord of all wars,
I prosper and laugh as you cry!

I send you my storms
Progeny obscure
Flood of violence and pain
Deimos and Phobos,
Black angels of death
Damnation you can't escape!

Wargreed
Devastation on your nations
Wargreed, on your knees
Here I come in flames

I reign to fight, the god of war
You run and die, it's time for you to fall
Can't stop me'n'my evil rise
Cry and scream, you burn alive

You know it's time to die

I rise from the abyss of time
To twist and take over your minds
I've come to plant my rotten seed
Now kneel down to my...

Wargreed
Obliteration of your nations
Wargreed, on your knees
Here I come in flames

I reign to fight, the god of war
You run and die, it's time for you to fall
Can't stop me'n'my evil rise
Cry and scream, you burn alive

You know it's time to die
Track Name: Gates Of Babylon
[solo Fede]

Five milleniums of history
On our path of blood and bones
Territorial and holy wars
In the name of never seen gods

Oh Gates of Babylon
We opened out wide
with greed and hate
Cursed by our heritage

All religions praise their judgement day
But can't you see we made it dawn, eight centuries ago?
And now it's much too late
No way to face our grinning fate

Oh Gates of Babylon
We opened out wide
with greed and hate
Cursed by our heritage

[solo Chris, Luca]

Oh dear, now it's too late
Taste the knife rippin' up our back
On a black and slow decay
The chance we had, we wasted away

Oh Gates of Babylon
We opened out wide
With greed and hate
We all failed and now we'll pay!

All religions praise their judgement day
But can't you see we made it dawn, eight centuries ago?
And now it's much too late
No way to face our grinning fate
Track Name: Vultures Lead Our Way
Without hope across red deserts we roam
Raging stray wolves we've become
Well worth of our infamous doom
In the endless night we watched our cities burn
Beneath the grin of a cold evil moon

Still we chase the blood red sky
Evil race, doomed to die
Bold we're marchin' towards our grave
As vultures lead our way!

Final - Flash!
Endless - Black!

Flashes in the sky and all our hopes were gone
Like mindless beasts we burnt our brothers' bones
No...Never free again
Our cries now fly up to the sky
Now it's time for clans and tribes to rise! WAR!

Still we chase the blood red sky
Evil race, doomed to die
Fast we're marchin' towards our grave
As vultures lead our way!
Track Name: Locked Heart
She never talks about herself to others
But stands apart in silence
When we all talk

Her eyes keep looking down, pale and empty
But once they could rise up
To look a man's face

...Wishing to smile again...

'Trust' is the word she cannot hear anymore
She'd open wide her eyes
But still she feels she can't

She can't remember
How to trust a man

Everyday screaming against her mirror
Sick'n tired of the games that people play
Fragile like a glass, hiding burning scars

She lives inside herself
She can just stand apart
Longing for a sincere smile
Locked heart inside

She lives inside herself
Pretending she's alright
Longing for a sincere smile
Locked heart inside

Now she's found the real love she dreamt
A man who's able to let her glitter again
- But still she feels her chains -

On and on she tried to show her soul to him
But finds her love
Trapped by doubts and fears...

Cryin' out, cryin' out
'Set me free!' She cries out loud

[solo Fede]

Cryin' out, screaming loud
She cannot free her love again
As in sorrow calls his name

She's trapped inside herself
She can just kiss her scars
Still cryin' for deliverance
Locked heart inside

She lives inside herself
For they shut down her light
Longing for a sincere smile
Locked heart inside

Hopeless dreams and burning tears
Locked heart inside

one day she'll shine again...
Track Name: Stonetears
Falling down
deeper inside your senseless smile
Can't keep away all this rage
Now everything's cutting your mind
Spreading decay

Stand up proud
feeling your life like a shining prize
Relentless your sand flows away
Remember the time of crimes
You're fading away

Every tear is a stone
Crushing this ground of illusions and void
Tear down these walls

No refuge to hide away, no choices
Childhood fears turn back to life
Lies and tears will close your eyes

Crying shouts
that's what you left in your careless world
Refusing to find out your lights
Too late for a chage, now prepare
To face all your sins

Blinded sights
No wonder, no doubts, now payback is here
In silence you'll suffer and pray
For death to catch all of your breaths
The torture begins

Every tear is a stone
Crushing this ground of illusions and void
Tear down these walls

No refuge to hide away, no choices
Childhood fears turn back to life
Lies and tears will close your eyes
