STYLE: Atmospheric Metal
ORIGIN: Athens,Greece
ALBUM: "A World Afraid Of Light" - [2015]
LABEL" Progressive Vision Group

Moaning Silence were born many years ago, during a cold quiet night, in the dark alleys of the mind of their main composer and guitarist Christos Dounis, while he was studying the varieties of human nature. Emotions, thoughts, pictures, gave birth to lyrics and music notes, while the great poets and writers of our times, created a dreadful atmosphere in which music, dreams, feelings become one.
In late 2014, Christos’ steps crossed with vocalist Aimilia Papatheochari.
Recordings took place under the supervision of producer Bob Katsionis (Firewind,Outloud) at Sound Symmetry Studio, Athens, Greece. One year later, the dream became reality.
Ten songs about sorrow, love, darkness, memories and lost hope are ready to fill the hollow wounds.
The whole music vision of the band was captured on canvas by acclaimed French painter Gilles Grimmoin.

A World Afraid of Light is revealed.

Are you ready to explore the darkest side of our minds?
After all,
“music is the art which is most nigh to tears and memories” Oscar Wilde

Track Name: Solitude
I close my sorrowful eyes
Hear the whispers of the earth
Wash my heart in the rain
Cause I’m alone again

Daylight fades behind the clouds
(with weeping voices they call)
Lonely candles in the sky
(the sirens of the night)
Tragic thoughts invade my mind
(and with lust invade your mind)
Shining shadows make me blind

An ode to Solitude

I close my sorrowful eyes
Hear the silence of the night
Craving from the pain
Cause I’m alone again
Track Name: Black Skies
Under black skies lord I dream
Where winds leave their last breath,
I grieve for the loss of purity
With my bare hands hope I bring
Blessed are they who suffer enough,
Still faithful remain
Forlorn elegies they sing ,
With tears of burning fire
Haunting the souls of the saints,
Silence around the hill

I kneel before the cross
I see the man with the thorns begging for life
Cursed am I not to taste delight?
Explore the path of my mind, salvation you seek
Darkness you will find, emptiness, forgiveness

Angels dressed in black
Hold the flames upon the stars
I often look at them
With tears in my eyes
Beneath those black skies
Track Name: On Fragile Wings
On fragile wings we will carry this burden alone
Heaven won’t answer the questions that poison our souls
Time is the healer, a great deceiver, it hurts
Embers of fire remain from the glorious days
Solitude weeps like a child whose mother is lost
Tales we were taught about princess and dragons got old
Winters they came, erased all the sunbeams of light
Jaded and hollow, with blood on our hands now we cry

Alone, nowhere to go...
Alone, so far from home

Lost in the age of despair I will follow my path
The warmth of a smile, a secret engaged with my heart
Silence tells nothing but I hear the calls from above
Whispers of angels, illusions of unburied hope
Night unveils all the unknown martyrs of life
Some of them fall, others try, most await their demise
Mothers in black kneel and say farewell to their kings
As I go on with my journey on fragile wings

Alone, nowhere to go...
Alone, so far from home

Our wings, ravaged by time, our souls, weakened, fragile
Track Name: The Last Days Of December
Autumn shows its scars,
as we enter the Great Night
My soul departs with the last birds of the sky
Leaving the body defenseless to the winds
Carrying the burden of endless memories
Voices from the shore
call me to a restless pain
Messengers of love,
they break my heart again
Shaping the face of an angel in disguise
Into her eyes I wandered, Into her arms I cried

I close my eyes to face the truth (once more)
I’m still afraid of her reflection
All of my feelings have been lost (my love)
Until the day of my redemption

It’s 24th today and I wake up with tears
The stars still burning bright
on the commemorative sky
The scars are healed again, all sorrows disappear
We praise the breath of God, the hope, the love, the life
In inner peace I still remember
As we leave behind the last days of December
Track Name: As If It Was Yesterday
As I return home, I see a letter,
It's just a postcard, without adress
Colors have faded away by time
Familiar faces, lost memories
I gaze through my window a waltz of ravens,
Nobody’s crossing my street in this cold, pale winter
Dead leaves and echoes outside my door,
My only guests to this dreadful evening
Days become years, lost and frightened
Time fills our hearts with fear, forevermore
Under those flickering stars,
I prayed for one last time,
One more wish and one more lie
I step outside when rain begins,
I hear from the stars our favorite song
The city lights shine upon me
Leading my way to the last dance
And I danced with you all night,
As if it was yesterday
Track Name: Stay
I see you walk alone,
empty eyes, empty thoughts
Wandering in the dark
Through endless roads
Raised by shadows, fed by the dim light
Reborn from ashes each and every night
Forget the sorrows that make you blind,
wipe away your cries
Embrace me now feel secure ,
see through my eyes

There’s something you should see
"I see total darkness"
There’s something you should feel
"I feel only sorrow and pain"
Your wounds can now be healed
"There’s a reason for every loss"
You don’t have to leave
"I have to leave"

I see you walk alone
In this world afraid of light
The years of innocence are left behind
Under stars I make a wish
Io stay with me forever
As I steal your final kiss
I’ll never be the same…never
Track Name: Just Another Day
Early morning,
i awake with crimson tears
The remembrance
of a lady-fairy in my dreams
Her brightest smile,
her hands caress my soul
Bringing back,
feelings that i used to know
I hold her hand,
tonight we pray for our lives
Embrace her tight,
tonight we’ll tear apart the past
I saw the pain, the sorrow in her eyes
And I feel blue, oh what else I could do?

Just to be with you
The price I have to pay,
to stay another day
Tonight I sing this song
tomorrow you’ll be gone
Let me find a way girl to keep you safe
Take you by the hand make you understand
That life is just a breath
Golden given wealth
Angel spread your wings
reach your purest dreams
Yearn for childhood years burn your inner fears

Any price I’ll pay to stay another day
My life is not the same since you came my way
Think you’re not alone, morning soon will come
Track Name: An Elegy For The Crestfallen
The sea of gold reflects your shattered eyes
As I grow old still I mesmerize
The mourning of your jaded heart, a scent of grace
The dreams once had are torn apart, at the sunrise tragedy
A grief for lies for sorrows never healed
When fate decides which candle has to die
Your mother’s hands won’t hold you tight, when the fire starts
Your inner strength, your spirit flies, towards the wind of blame
