about

Abest Göttingen, Germany

Their debut full length „Asylum“ was released in May 2014 via This Charming Man Records, home of bands like The Tidal Sleep, Messer or Fjørt. In summer 2016 Abest released their new 12" EP "Last" - again on This Charming Man Records. ... more

Track Name: Solando
absent
a ghost
will-less
walking under water

through
the
light
steady
and
clear

her gaze clarifies

hear the ocean
outside
the tide
coming in
Track Name: Distant Hands Longing
they drift apart, they're dying
now massing in the dephts
distant hands are longing
not putting them to rest

desperate calls remain unanswered
echoes fill the dark
she dwells alone so silently
their pallor full of sparks

innocence was stolen
just out of their hearts

a pretence mimes those lifes
a hull, no one inside
Track Name: Into Grey
wake up into grey
sunlight fades away
blinded by the fear of what brought us here

the foghorn is howling
a nauseating taste
my memories were tainted but never laid to waste

your voice is filled with water
before me a liquid shade
following your trail until i fade away
Track Name: The Fall
breathing out
the final breath
thoughts are full
of all the dead

now projected through his mind
memories, not left behind

the taste of death
he swallows whole
blood is running
black as coal

another one
lay on the shores
swarming rats
marching in scores

what lay there
was not a man
the fall: a fraud
alone again
