about

Scene Of My Demise; An infectious, eight legged, , Punk Rock machine beating up influences from Sick Of It All, Rise Against, Nofx, Killswitch Engage, Bane, Strike Anywhere, Alexisonfire, Faith No More, Rage Against The Machine, Atreyu, Mars Volta, The Bronx, Taking Back Sunday & Rancid…..

Moving on from their earlier 'Songs Of Prey' demo, 'This Sounds Nothing Like An Apology' sees the band galvanise their sound, breaking it apart and sculpting an altogether more angular beast.
No longer sitting on the fringes of the Emo/Screamo scene this latest recording offers a glimpse of things to come from this determined UK four piece.

With 6 songs, recorded over two days, this EP has a gritty energy, its immersive sound captures the feel and presence of their live shows in a studio recording.
Familiar yet fresh, with a sound that's hard to pin down S.O.M.D. will catch you by surprise.

They are the dark horse that learnt to run alongside Welcome Back Delta, GagReflex, Broken Jaw, Snog The Dog, Stillbust and I The Lion.

Maybe now is the time to start backing them.

Track Name: The Charge
The Charge by Scene Of My Demise

THE CHARGE!
Hold your fire.
Resolve is waining.
The scars on our bodies are taking their toll.
The threat of submission is keeping us strong,
The tide is low we bend and we break.
This is the truth that we never were told.

WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
There’s a calm in the storm; the stars are disguised!
WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
We’re full of regret!
Full of regret!
Let’s raise the stakes and light up the stars!
This is the truth that we never were told!

THE CHARGE!
Show desire.
Restraint is fading.
The weight on our shoulders is taking its toll!
The sound of derision is keeping us low.
The threat is clear, we bend and we break.
This is the truth that we never were told!

We drew a line in the sand, they ignored us!
We drew a line in the sand, they ignored us!

THEY WANTED THIS! x 2

WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
There’s a calm in the storm; the stars are disguised!
WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
We’re full of regret!
Full of regret!
Let’s raise the stakes and light up the stars!
THIS IS THE TRUTH THAT WE NEVER WERE TOLD!
Track Name: Distinct Possibility
Distinct Possibility by Scene Of My Demise

Evidently another awkward question,
How far would you go?
Walls close in
WE SUFFOCATE!
WE SUFFOCATE!
Revolution sets the wheels in motion,
Lead or just follow
Walls close in
WE SUFFOCATE!
WE SUFFOCATE!

Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!
Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!

I’ve got another poignant question,
Where’d our heroes go?
Capes all gone
WE SUFFOCATE!
WE SUFFOCATE!
Standing firm let’s light the flame in protest,
Bursting at the seams
Walls close in
WE SUFFOCATE!
WE SUFFOCATE!

Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!
Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!

The world spins in chaotic fashion,
Take one step at a time
LET'S DETONATE!
LET'S DETONATE!
Revolution sets the wheels in motion,
Lead or just follow
LET'S DETONATE!
LET'S DETONATE!

Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!
Weak hands
And shallow hearts
Always a distinct possibility!
Track Name: The Great Clash
The Great Clash by Scene Of My Demise

Everything about this scene,
Is everything I hate.
A product of adversity, ineffective regret.
We built these dreams, on delusions of grandeur;
You’re the only one I never really judged.

THE GREAT CLASH!
Shockwaves will gather,
Spread disillusion.
THE GREAT CLASH!
Shockwaves will gather,
Spread disillusion.

Waves dance around us, sink or swim!
Stand up be counted, push back the tide.
Waves circle around us, sink or swim!
Cries go unanswered, push back the tide.

Everything about this mess,
Is everything I dread.
A product of an insincere intention to change.
This time we’ll share delusions of grandeur;
You’re the only one I ever really loved.

THE GREAT CLASH!
Shockwaves will gather,
Spread disillusion.
THE GREAT CLASH!
Shockwaves will gather,
Spread disillusion.

THIS SOUNDS NOTHING LIKE AN APOLOGY x 4
Track Name: Night Lights Fade
Night Lights Fade by Scene Of My Demise

Pilgrims in search of answers,
All left empty handed again.
Some look up to the stars but
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!

Journeys lit up by questions,
All left vacant and unfulfilling!
Some look up to the stars but
The night lights fade!

The beaten track leads over paths that we cannot avoid.

We work our hardest to succeed.
IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE.
Some are searching but still waiting.
IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE.

In our search for solutions,
We all turn to others for hope.
Some look up to the stars but
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!
Suffering from exhaustion,
From the push and pull of the waves.
Some look up to the stars but
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!
THE NIGHT LIGHTS FADE!

Can we survive, if we only remember not what we’ve done but what we
haven't yet? X 2

Your words won't save me now x 3
Your words, WON'T EVER SAVE ME!

Casualties of fragile wars,
Atrocities
MIND YOUR HEAD THE SKY IS FALLING!
Casualties of fragile wars
Atrocities
WAKE ME UP WHEN IT’S ALL OVER!

Your words won't save me now x 3
Your words, WON'T EVER SAVE ME!

Casualties of fragile wars,
Atrocities
MIND YOUR HEAD THE SKY IS FALLING!
Casualties of fragile wars,
Atrocities
WAKE ME UP WHEN IT’S ALL OVER!
Track Name: Small White Lies
Small White Lies by Scene Of My Demise

Pointless antagonistic virtues, perished by the flames.
DISASTER!
Thoughtless cynicism ceases to exist and hope remains.
DISASTER!

They exhausted the oxygen that courses through our veins.
This was a bitter pill to swallow.
They abandoned all signs of hope so we could all be blamed.
This was a bitter pill to swallow.

All the sounds,
We receive
Are always difficult to believe.

Sounds like retribution plagues you, poisoned and decayed.
DISASTER!
Small lies meander then they turn you, deceit is now unveiled.
DISASTER!

They exhausted the oxygen that courses through our veins.
This was a bitter pill to swallow!
They abandoned all signs of hope so we could all be blamed.
This was a bitter pill to swallow!

All the sounds,
We receive
Are always difficult to believe.

Pointless antagonistic virtues, perished by the flames.
Disaster
AVERTED!

Those small white lies,
We grew up with.
Is this the reason we’re still fighting each other?
Those small white lies,
We grew up with
Is this the reason we’re still killing each other?
Last call for deep breaths and virtues,
We turn our cheek we don’t need to
TO SAVE OURSELVES.
Last call for deep breaths and virtues,
We turn our cheek we don’t need to
TO SAVE OURSELVES.
We turn our backs and run and hide.
While all of our friends need us most.
We should sympathise. We should sympathise. We should sympathise.
Track Name: Few Against The Many
The Few Against the Many by Scene Of My Demise

Be certain that all levels
Are tuned to equalise
And please be sure to listen closely.
Living vicariously
That’s how you live your lives;
I’m sure that your days must be empty.

Express this venom cathartically.
Stand straight your poise is suffering.

HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are infectious!
HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are neutral!
HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are the voice,
WE ARE THE VOICE OF THE FRUSTRATED!

Be sure to listen closely,
These words will mesmerize.
Living this way cannot be healthy.
Living vicariously
That’s how you live your lives;
I’m sure that your days must be empty.

Express this venom cathartically.
Stand straight your poise is suffering.

HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are infectious!
HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are neutral!
HAVEN'T YOU HEARD!
We are the voice,
WE ARE THE VOICE OF THE FRUSTRATED!

Haven’t you heard? We are the few against
The few against the many!
Haven’t you heard? We are the few against
The few against the many!

We’re leading in our own way.
We’re paving out our own way.
We are the voice
The voice of the frustrated – we are, we are!

We’re putting these hypocrites, you hypocrites away!
We’re putting these hypocrites, you hypocrites away!
We are the voice!
We are the few against!
The few against
the many,
the many,
the many!
