about

Unhold Bern, Switzerland

Unhold thrives on dynamics, the alternation of emotions and the variety in their artistic choices of instrumentation, putting a wealth of thought, energy and work into making emotionally complex creations, which only start to reveal themselves after several listens. Hope, anger and agony generate a space and a sonic architecture which bears witness to a conscious existence and vigorous force. ... more

Track Name: Attaining The Light
I know we all fight battles everyday we have
And what will last are only the dreams we sent in space

Are you offering repulsion on your way to dust
Why does your fear bring tears to all these fearful eyes?

Have you ever seen Saturn’s rings
when dark surrounds your eyes?
You know your grace can last and attain the light

I don’t know the end and how we do affect our lives
But I fight your non-human acts with all I have and am

Can we carve our names in stone?
Side by side
Can we reach our hands again?
Side by side
I lost the feeling to see
Are you gone?
I lost the feeling to see

And I ask
Are you gone?

With evil gaze off to blazing star
At loss tremble with shame
Why has your bloom turned to wither
Escape from hate - courage go far

Attaining the light - pierce the shadow behind your eyes
Attaining the light - reach out with fortitude

And I ask
Are you gone?
I can’t touch
The cold stone
Track Name: Convoy
Made of old skin
And bleached yellow bone
Concrete and glass
Broken from one mold

Piled up miles high
Holding its ground
Licking its teeth
Taking its toll

Where is the blood
Where is the blood

It’ll be the foundation
the mortar on which it stands
It’ll be built on muscle and tooth
And then you will know

Where is the blood
Where is the blood

And when the signs turn clear
Then will it flow?
When they decide
Where will it go?

And when the blood seeps in
Then will it grow?
When they align
Will the path be shown?

Here is the blood
Here is the blood

And when the signs turn clear
Then will it flow?
When they decide
Where will it go?

And when the blood seeps in
Then will it grow?
When they align
Will the path be shown?

Blood! Blood!
Track Name: Deeper In
Two steps behind
Where the past is still alive
Beautiful and forgiven
We are standing tall
Not knowing what we’re given

Why do you always stay…
Why do you always stay…

Everything gets real
Sooner or later
Doesn’t matter how you feel
Why do you always stay…

Miles away
Miles away

What’s on your mind
When you’re lost in time
What’s on your mind
As we fall into oblivion
What’s on your mind
As we fall
Track Name: Curse Of The Dime
Dwarf the sacred charge
Antlers interlocked
Eyes set on the prize
The curse of the dime

Hear the trumpets of damnation
Smell the scent of demise
One step closer to abysm
Into the vortex we climb

If it doesn’t die on the outside
It will turn bad within
A blade to cut through the darkness
The haze clouding your mind

Through roots, mud and dirt
We dig down to find the hatch
Whence we crawled from
Where we found the steel

The curse of the dime

Imperceptible diversion
Plows into swords once again
Our knuckles recollect the pain
As we forge the curse of the dime

Dwarf the sacred charge
Antlers interlocked
Eyes set on the prize
The curse of the dime

The curse of the dime
Track Name: Hunter
They still got the scars, but the pain is gone
No life without fall, that’s what they’re told anyway
As if we wouldn’t know how to run,
as if we wouldn’t know where to hide
This wave has swept over us, can’t back off from it now
So who are you, telling us what to do,
telling us how to be and telling us what to believe
Distracts my own self respect, turns my stomach too
Ghost-like sun emerges from you

Take responsibility
How is it done to show integrity?

You cheat and you lie, you steal and you hurt
Grow a thick skin hunter
You can push us around and you can do what you want
Release the hunter

Mistaken back then, mistaken right now
Down in the water, left to be drowned

You cheat and you lie, you steal and you hurt
Grow a thick skin hunter
You can push us around and you can do what you want
Release the hunter

I want to be lead outside
Hunt of the hunted, a new rise
Track Name: Pale
Pale, a dash of red
Read me right through my hide

Crawling up through the spine
Stricken, wound up, torn

Unburden my mind
From my hands – take it all

Through your eyes i shall see
Through your deed i shall be
Once we part
We’ll be free

Through hail and storm
I found serenity
Come out from under,
Walk with me

Pale, a dash of red
Pale, a dash of red
Pale, a dash of red
Pale

A vault to shelter me
Calmness and tranquility
Listen to the canon
We will heal

Pale…
Pale…
Pale…
Pale!
Track Name: Altar
Suffering arises from your fear
You trapped your tongue within yourself
You walk on thornes set the bridges in flames
Hail the echoes of your own pains

You deny yourself
Obstruct the light
You deny yourself
Shattering face
You deny yourself
Dividing the path

Live for me

What we all get
Is only a life
No chastise no pain
No guilt for none

Fallen words – fallen dreams
Honor the unseen to pray for me
You will glorify my truth…

Fallen words – fallen dreams
I’ll give you all if you follow me
You will glorify my truth…

Rising the stakes your deep eager appears
Seed a drought to constrict the waves
Fraught with blindness amongst the light
To behold the darkness of your own mind

You deny yourself
Obstruct the light
You deny yourself
Shattering face
You deny yourself
Dividing the path

Die for me

What we all get
Is only a life
No chastise no pain
No guilt for none

Your guard – the fear
Sneaks upon your alleys of hope
To cover the terrible emptiness you carry
To hail the echoes of yestereves pain

No gods no guilt
Track Name: The Chronic Return
From here is is where we look back
Here is where we want to stop
‘Cause we wish to begin
New again

From here is is where we look back
Here is where we want to stop
Delusion craved with promise
Again
