I knew it would be you
Who broke the line
Told me we would be fine
Until one of us were fallen

I knew it would be me
Who answered your call
Told you that you were wrong
Until I could prove it to your shocking mime

I knew it would be us
Who got enough to each other
Told nothing and acting a stranger
Until we gone old and limping

I knew I wouldn't be known
The reason why this would happen
A scenario that was already written
Until the last page that is filled with a blank

I knew you have known
That in the end
God knows everything that we don't


* You know how hard it was to deal with, but I knew that I would be the last one standing here.

Playing God.

Holy men never exist
Not a baby, nor even a priest
They manifest evil in every breath they catch
They experience things and they feed evil thoughts
They are blessed with feeling, brain and senses
They are condemned with hunger, fear and greediness
True and false will be their lifetime enemies
Merit and sin will be their forever worst nightmares
Everything in this world will have its end
But why not to God?
Every creature will choose its path to heaven or hell
But why not to God?
Why God never wants to own what we have,
Though we always want to own God’s power?
Why God never envies us,
Though we are ready to kill and to die to be in His position?
Men never created to feel truly satisfied
Nor even be wholly perfect
But they give rank, they give rate, they give score
They give reward, they give punishment
They judge, they value things and they label things
They establish egocentric thoughts to a form named “law”
Whether it was made unintentionally conscious
Or intentionally unconscious
Law has been said as mass legally compromise
They said it is mass legally agreement
And there they are
They form a new mindset of humankind
Because they judge, innocence exists
Because they value things, the accused appears
They collect power and hide their weaknesses from disclosure
A power with several unbelievable ingredients
It is include a bottle of fear, 10 spoons of passion
A cup of cowardice, a full bundle of stupidity
Mixed with a bowl of polluted brain capacity
They are all mixed up in a pan of money
Burnt in a flame of greediness
That is how law is made
That is how they started to question God
That is how they lose their self-consciousness
That is how phenomenon plays games upon men
Soiled their holiness, ruined their innocence
Screwed their goodness
Where finally some deceiving goodness hide in mask only remain
I started to question myself
Why heaven still has to be there,
If men are all playing God?

[Tidur sambil mimpiin dia kayanya enak nih!

Setelah selesai meng-upload foto-foto nostalgiLa di Efes, dan habis itu baca note Fesbuk-nya Sita, aduh... Gue jadi kangen B.A.N.G.E.T sama mereka!

Untung besok ada acara Bukber...
*menahan keinginan untuk menguap, menjerit minta pulang dan mengutuk aircon kantor yang sangat tidak bersahabat sementara perut kosong blong!*

Gelap on Hai Magazine!

“Emang bener, metal deket dengan setan. Ya begitulah! Itu sebabnya kita harus bikin yang exceptional, yang beda.” [Ombat – Tengkorak]

“Bagi gue, bukan jadi hal yang baku kalau metal harus mengarah ke arah yang negative. Kalau mereka bilang gitu, gue juga punya hak kalau metal juga bisa positif.” [Die – Purgatory]

“Kami ngga pernah merencanakan bakal begini. Intinya sih kami ngambil referensi ke agama karena kami nguasain materinya. Beda kalau ngomongin setan-setanan, hal kaya gitu gue ngga ngerti.” [Amor – Purgatory]

“Dunia ini sekarang udah kacau banget. Dengan segala keburukan yang terjadi, yang bisa menolong kita cuma iman dan agama.” [Rins – Gelap]


Those are the previews of one of the newest Hai Magazine’s articles that have been released on Sept 8. Regarding to the fasting month that we’re running now, Hai Magazine gives the readers a Ramadhan-theme for its recent edition. There are several Ramadhan-theme articles like “Berdakwah Lewat Lagu”, “Nongkrong Selama Ramadhan”, “Peraturan Khas Ramadhan” and the last is “Metal Religi”.

The latter article is quite special for me, because my band – Gelap – has been chosen as one of three underground bands that are considered as religious bands, along with Purgatory [new metal] and Tengkorak [grindcore]. Frankly, it’s a big honor for me and Gelap especially, to be put side-by-side with two most well-known religious underground bands like Purgatory and Tengkorak [regarding that we’re still new in the underground scene and they are like the “Gods” in each of their own scene].

The article itself tells about looking metal music in different perception, the Brightside. That actually not all metal bands are related to demonic, hedonic or atheistic. There is always light within the darkness, even if it is just a tiny light. What matters is whether you could see the tiny light when your eyes are already stucked in the darkness’ comfort zone. More or less that’s the article written on it.

Be pleased to read the article if it meets your interest [which also means you might buy the mag. Aha! Hai Mag should pay me for marketing their stuff, hahaha!]

Enjoy reading and enlightening your mind with METALLY religious bunch of musicians’ opinions.
