ARSIS: New Song Posted Online

Virginia's melodic/technical death metal band ARSIS has posted a new song, "Beyond Forlorn", on the group's MySpace page. The track comes off ARSIS' new album, "Starve For The Devil", which is scheduled for release in North America on February 9, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented guitarist/vocalist James Malone: "I am of the belief that one can be most convincing when they write/create from personal experience. 'Beyond Forlorn' is probably one of my favorite tracks from 'Starve for the Devil' because it is so deeply personal for me. I really feel that I tried to put all of my being into this one track."

"Beyond Forlorn"
(Music and lyrics by James Malone)

Lead Theme By James

The Dreams Of Others
Wither By Light Of Day
When The Truth's Uncovered
You Will Find Me Wasting Away

A Dark Curse Upon Me
Flesh Bound To The Whiping Post
Hunted And Haunted
Stalked By Nostalgia The Memory Of A Ghost

Beyond Forlorn, The Answers Lie In Lonliness Disease Reborn, I Am So Full On Emptiness

In The Heart Of Torture
Came The Vulture's Melody
To Grant My Wishes
A Pardon From This Malady.

A Drop Of Poison
Just A Drop To Call The Armies Off
A Chance For Release
For Release Is All I Ever Want

Beyond Forlorn, The Answers Lie In Lonliness Disease Reborn, I Am So Full On Emptiness The Greed That Blankets Passion Keeps All Of Our Grief In Fashion And As The Fervor Slowly Dies I Damn My Soul To Open Up The Sky.

Lead Theme: James
Solo: James
Solo: Nick

From This Failing Temple
Draped In Scarlet Shrouds
The Starving Statue
Looks On And Speaks Aloud

Locked Inside The Famine Chamber
I Am The Prince Of Emaciation
Under The Spell Of The Coldest Slendor
Grant Me My Wish, Release The Poison

A Dark Curse Upon Me
Flesh Bound To The Whipping Post
A Drop Of Poison
Just A Drop To Call The Armies Off

Beyond Forlorn
The Answers Lie In Lonliness
Disease Reborn
I Am So Full On Emptiness
The Greed That Blankets Passion
Keeps All Of Our Grief In Fashion
Beyond Forlorn, Stalked By Nostalgia
My Memories Are Your Ghost [End of lyrics]
