about

Vatican City - 2050

It began with the cavernous chant. A neon blue fissure opens up over the square, a dark figure emerges.

Angels fall from the sky as flames erupt around the imposing Basilica. Where once white smoke rose, an obelisk now falls.

Tanks emblazoned with an ancient symbol, now an emblem of evil, provide covering fire into the distance as the Priest Runner Units lock onto their targets.

The final schism has begun.

about

Dark Smoke Signal Bristol, UK

DSS is a Darksynth producer from Bristol, UK.

Incorporating elements of Metal, Dubstep, Trance, Nu-Metal, Gothpop and Classical all flambéed with a splash of
80's cock-rock guitar into a melting pot of ingredients so uncool it’s delicious. DSS paints a dark cinematic world with splashes of
colour to ease the tension.

Songs are a mix of vocal and instrumental styles
retaining a melodic edge.

Track Name: Fallen Idol
Our time has come to stand together
We will not go quietly into the night
We're going to live on
There won't be lost tears in rain
Track Name: Tearing the Wings off an Angel
A truth that is inhaled, a serum for a veil
Silhouettes in a line, a thousand shadows dancing at a time
Dripping blood red wine
A devil starts to take control
Of the desire, visions that conspire
Alone in the desert in the night
Blackened eyes, dilated at the skies
Time to face the final trial
Struck by a supernova sun

Tearing the wings off an angel
There's a black mark running through my heart
Tearing the wings off your angel
Now the black mark is seeping through your heart

The scars will never heal, a bowed head when I kneel
Corrupted to the core, a nervous system that's fallen through the floor
A buried trauma
Start to feel the ghost pains again
Can't maintain an equilibrium
Lack of faith projected on a face
Struck by a supernova sun

Tearing the wings off an angel
There's a black mark running through my heart
Tearing the wings off your angel
Now the black mark is seeping through your heart

Tearing the wings off an angel
There's a black mark running through my heart
Tearing the wings off your angel
Now the black mark is seeping through your heart
Open the schism around us
Stitched back with a feathered tar
A screaming face holds the mirrored plea
Track Name: I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds
We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
Track Name: Panzer Wolf Division
Feuer die Panzer, du bist nicht mein Gott!
Feuer die Panzer, du bist nicht mein Gott!
