Rabauw - Manipulation


After six months I finished another cybertrack. As always bombastic angelic synths, lots of tempo changes, lots of groove, and the usual rough vocals.


This is an open war, we're all a part of it
we can't escape our fate, this struggle's our destiny
just look into the mirror, we only have ourselves to blame
we're raised as pawns, pieces in a bloody game

This is an open war and we're a part of it
unable to escape the pain and grief we're about to face
the truth is covered with lies
no one dares to open the eyes
so we just stand in line and watch the days go by in denial

all in panic - scaremonger - recall open sores
call to arms - warmonger - bleed forevermore
manipulation - mind-twister - won't buy your shit no more
enemy unknown - false captor - we won't fight your war!

Rise! Stand up and go against the grain
tolerate no longer your corrupted reign
now we see through all of the lies
we've always been behind enemy lines

we've come to the point that we return to sheer apathy
numb are our senses in a fake and cold society

This is an open war and we're a part of it
we can't escape our fate, this struggle's our destiny
the truth is covered with lies
no one dares to open the eyes

(repeat 3rd)

    BpOlar [be] - 13 years ago

    I just love these vocals
    They deserved to be mixed more in front

    HyeVolture [be] - 13 years ago

    Metal on ebel: fockin nojsh!!!
    very pleased to hear this!
    good song!
    indeed voice and guitar could've been more on the forefront, but still very nice! keep up!

    crolerbedo [be] - 13 years ago

    the fact is, compo is great, but i think that kind of music needs real instruments, guitar is not powerful enough...Honestly, find some buddies, and play all those metal tracks live, scream behind your mic (and a synth) and you'll have a crowd shouting your name man !

    Rabauw [be] - 13 years ago

    Thanx man!
    I suppose you're right...but I don't really have the intention to start a band, I'm just doing it for the fun of it. And because I find it a real challenge to see how close to reality I can get with software.

    transynth [be] - 13 years ago

    woew BRRR :d Great intro!!Seems like you were pissed off when you made this :) It's not my music, but i can hear lots of work, i presume you could just make the guitar a litlle clearer, i mean the metal guitar, out of that, splendid work!Grtz

    eeezzeepeezzeee [be] - 13 years ago

    waah heavy...
    very interesting meeting place for electronics en rock.
    vocals are very strong, good drums too

    DeHomunculus [be] - 13 years ago

    amazing! i too like your vocals every time again. and the lyrics as well. and the music. and hell, just about everything in it!

    Alzebre [be] - 13 years ago

    very strage ,but cool

    yenneman [be] - 13 years ago

    Your songwriting-skills clearly progress everytime you produce something new...it's an art to have that many changes in all aspects of the song and still maintain something that sounds as a whole.

    Great opening + magnificent breaks.
    Cool how you return to the theme you used at the beginning.

    Rabauw [be] - 13 years ago

    Thanks a lot all of you!

    Yeah Yen I myself think too that I've been progressing a lot, I'm really satisfied with this song.

    Funky [be] - 13 years ago

    Daaajeum :) Rabauw strikes again :) Amazing how you make all this in a electronical way.... Drumz are really good & clear in this one... Good work! Like how you combine that synth in that first break... Cool mood in your melody's, fits perfectly with the lyrics, wich are, as usual, very nicely written... You got a real talent there... But since they are so good... I'd also like to hear 'm a bit more 'upfront' ( & maybe a bit more clearer...so I can understand 'm even better :) ) Me is impressed...again... :) Grtz!

    reaman [be] - 13 years ago

    if i didn't like your music i wouldn't have asked you for a collab.. but i think the "metal"sound is a bit too muted, it's kinda filtered so it looses power in my opinion.

    the lyrics are very mature and composition is great but only ths overall sound dissapoints me a tad... (me gusto)

    reaman [be] - 13 years ago

    did I wrote the previous comment???
    sorry, maybe it was my headers or sumtin' else but feel totally different now. RAAAAAAGGGGEEEEEE!

    Rabauw [be] - 13 years ago

    Thanks! Glad to read the song could change your mind ;-)
    Yeah maybe it takes a listen or two, I dunno. But definitely gotta play it loooooouuuuuud!

    CDawg [be] - 13 years ago

    nicely done. but i'm not really into this rock thing. the 'dance'parts, i like. ! good!

    kaoz [be] - 13 years ago

    Revolution! Kill the king for love is the law!
    You rule in cybermetal-world Rabauw. It's magnificant how close you get to sound like a band with just the software!

    Rabauw [be] - 13 years ago

    Thanks a lot! Yeah my other bandmembers are bits and bytes ^^
