about

By The Patient Denmark

While often being compared to Amon Amarth and Behemoth by reviewers, By the Patient is taking a new approach on the Scandinavian metal sound by not limiting to specific genres. They incorporate catchy tunes, grooves, and have found the perfect balance between melody and intensity.

The third album, due out in 2014, sees the band exploring new musical approaches as well as perfecting their craft.

Track Name: Ruled by the Dead
An aesthetic perfection
Drenched in a deception
Perceptions evolve, burn
and dissolve
Here’s a scapegoat for all to
see
Cast into the depths of hell
Still you buy what they sell
We won’t be ruled by the
dead
Ruled by the dead again
An endless regression
A hopeless obsession
Dancing to the same old
tune
Giving yourself away again
Cast into the depths of hell
Still you buy what they sell
We won’t be ruled by the
dead
Ruled by the dead again
A burn mark infested in
your mind
An institutionalized
discrimination
And so it is done when
ignorance has won
So it is done – intolerance
has won
And so it will be done – we won’t be ruled again
Track Name: Deceiver
Inglorious deceiver
Head lost in the clouds
Take the nearest exit
There’s one way out
Three steps down
Lies reality as you swept it
Into soothing lies
Deception’s eyes watch and
deny
Deceiver, you are lost
I cannot be the victim
This place is lost
I will not be the victim
The truth is yet to be heard
So take the sting away
The pain isn’t real
Like the stain on the perfect
picture
Into regression
Into submission
This is succession
This denial
The truth is yet to be told
Nine eyes staring
No contracts without the
sword
The only sovereign reign
supreme
Bring your death to the
people
Deceiver, your mandate is
lost in the cause
The truth is fragile and
numb
I’ve burned my lessons into
my skin
You’ll burn the truth - I’ll
burn you with it
So let you be trusted
So let you be loved
Give light to blind
Give the light you take
away
Track Name: Gehenna
Like a sun shining from above
Bringing light into my heart
You remind me of the spring
Bathing me in a soothing sleep
Yet you remain a myth
You drift away again
As my fall became my pride
I found a way back home
Gehenna
As my fall became my pride
I found a way back home
You remain the air I breathe
The path I chose to take
Bringing all things back
Resurrect me in your picture
Make me whole again
Take me into your light
You remain the reign inside
Bringing light into our lives
Track Name: Web of Beliefs
Freedom can best be understood
By those who’ve been oppressed
But have never kneeled before a tyrant
Underneath lies a hell we crawled back in
Contradictions evolve in the illusion of choice
When to select there is only one
There’s only one choice
This is as far as we get
This is as far as we get
if we close our eyes again
We create our own reality
So don’t take a corroded truth for granted
So discontent yet so remorseful
Disown your nightmare, your vivid cell
A contorted view, so calculated
You ran away, still you stay right here
We’re building castles of pretence
We were dreamers
Shocked by the cold air of deceit
This is the pinnacle of man
A zenith of power and disgust
An intent designed for no one else than the powers to be
In the web of beliefs
you’ll find yourself battered, broken down
In the web of beliefs
you’ll realize that nothing’s what it seems
Track Name: The Sleep
In time there is no progression
We will be lost
And so will you
Can you turn the page
you’re dying to read?
Can you see the things
dying to be?
We are so unresolved and full of it
Convulsions in the flesh
Oblige to the fun of the irony
In time we will be free
But we can’t wait for it again
I shed my skin as you turn away
I turn the bells
I reverse the effect
The joke’s on you
but you’re not biting
You’re only biting time
Biding your time to see me dissolve
The sleep is over
We won’t be free
We cannot see
This isn’t over
In time we will see clear
We cannot stay
The sleep is over
Now it’s all over
Now it’s falling over me
Track Name: Snakes
spit-lickers, backstabbers,
all the smiles, all the same styles
pre-designed opinions
carried by minions
what a cross to bear
a victim conformed to the norm
we’re the solution
we are completion
you will burn down and cease to exist
until then we’ll remain a spit in your face
you talk the talk
opinions aside you’re clueless
a pre-conceived overrated piece of shit
step down so you don’t get hurt
conforming to the norm
is that your purity?
there is no purity
too ashamed to look me in the eye
the score will be set
i guess you’ll eat your words again
a homicidal bastard with a smile on his lips
everyday grows old with a promise unfulfilled
there are no solutions, there’s no end to this
we’ll prophesize on chaos
and watch the world burn
snakes
i never liked you and i never will
the score will be set
it’s good that you’re here to take your defeat
i am the sin
you are the prey
prey on the weak
Track Name: Omnivore
i welcome the dead into my soul
for every step there’s a hell in me
no salvation, no redemption
only agony i’ve spilled before you
before you leave you should know this
i rest inside you and every thought becomes real
into nightmares you oblige to follow me down
for every step stray from the path
an icon for all to loathe
explanations are obsolete
no perfect place to stay
i will curse your every move
for every step stray from the path
i will curse your every move
for every step stray from the path
this hell is real
the pain i feel
i welcome the dead into my soul
it suits me fine that you rot
brother, thou art sick
i am the glass in the mouth of a liar
submerged into darkness
i will find my way into the light
i will find rest for my soul
