ashy kaonashi their music is like from an old after midnight radio programme i maybe dreamt about when i was an unhappy child. it calms me down and carries me far, far away. even the saddest tracks like Oak Wood. i love them, all the emotions and pictures i receive, and i will stay tuned.

rikm A beautiful tribute to a lost friend, Oak Wood finds Drab Majesty at their very best.

Another excellent track from a band that have fast become a personal favorite.

Antoine Boutin Flamboyant even so chilled, the first piece forms a lush scenery. Possibly the most vehement and catchiest song from DRAB MAJESTY. The simpler music might make it seem less crucial than tracks of 'The Demonstration', however in synergy the lyrics let such feelings dissipate. That makes a most universal and thought-provoking release yet. Death, destiny, reason and faith are addressed trough a relevant and awfully true context. The second song is as described by the author, and successful at it.

“Oak Wood" was a song received a couple weeks following the Ghostship tragedy in Oakland.  The DAIS family lost one of it's most beloved members, Cash Askew, and its song title is a literal translation of her last name; In Old Norse being Eiki (oak) Skogr (wood) thus making Oak Wood.  I found the name to be symbolically poignant in light of the events and wanted this to be a tribute piece.  The lyrics grapple with the existence of a god in a time of such utter sadness, hopelessness, and confusion.

“Egress" is meant to serve as a faint departure or daydream; spaces I often find myself drifting to as a means of escape when disturbing thoughts cyclically plague my brain.  Side A confronts the issue and Side B acts as a mental respite.  Making instrumental guitar pieces has always been an act of meditation and I hope if only for a brief moment, the listener can wander and lose themselves within the sonic imagery offered in this piece.

YOU GOT US ALL TO BREAK THE SILENCE
MELDING HEARTS WHEN WE ALL WATCHED IT FROM AFAR
LATELY THIS LIFE'S AN INSANE ASYLUM
A BREAK IN SANITY WHEN VANITY IS MARRED

WHY
IN THE WORLD
WOULD A GOD
TAKE SOMEONE AS YOUNG AS A CHILD
WE REVILE
IN DENIAL
EVERY TIME YOU TRY AND SHOW US 
WE WON'T ACCEPT
WHAT CAN WE GLEAN NOW FROM A BAD DREAM
WHEN WE ALL WANT SOMEONE TO BLAME NOW FOR THE PAIN.
THIS LOSS OF LOVE AND LIFE SO SADDENING
EXTINGUISH HOPE, NO GOD I KNOW 
WHERE WAS THE RAIN
WE WONT FORGET
