about

Strain is an alternative rock band from Gorinchem. Grooving drums, havoc wrecking guitar riffs and a melodic voice are the core of their unique sound. A few influences are System of a down, Tool, Karnivool and And So I Watch You From Afar.
At the moment, the four-headed band is playing in numerous small stages and festivals. They have also been the supporting act for alternative (Belgium) bands such as Raketkanon, The Zygoma disposal and BEAR. Strain is primarily known for their explosive live performance and it is a must see for every rock/metal fan.

Now, two years later, they have recorded their second EP ‘AFR’ in Studio 4205. With their new EP, they want to tour intensively once again, and to put their explosive mark on every stage they go.

Track Name: Scaffold
I hold...
My breath. I wonder.
Will this test ever be my disguise?

I stay…
In silence, asking myself why
What is the reason I’m still up again?

I’m so scared to be.
I’m too afraid to boo.
I’m so sad that we’re not together not the same.

You were my first.
You need to server my thirst.
What did you promise to me?

Why didn’t I see?


Make haste.
Distress, Oh hell I can’t care less.
About your brand new lies.

Let go.
All of the silence, making me wonder why.
What was the reason I got in the mess?

I’m too fast to avoid.
And too scared to fight.
End this dream for all of us.

You were all mine.
Just let you finish in time.
What did you promise to me?

Why didn’t I see?

--

I guess I’ll settle down, for all my fantasies.
The less I see of my dark realities.
I guess I’ll settle down, so I can be with you.
There’s nothing left for me, there’s nothing I can do.

The moment I’m aware, I’m in ecstasy.
The less I can see of my own tragedies.
I guess I’ll settle down, so I can be with you.
The moment slipped away, there’s nothing I can do.
Track Name: Voices From The Rain
Low are the voices that come from the rain.
The moment has past but it all stays the same.
As I sit here wondering why,
Low are the voices that come from the rain.

Low are the voices that come from the rain.
You think this is over but I still remain.
As I sit here wondering why,
Low are the voices that come from the rain.

I lie still and gaze upon the darkest sky.
Hearing those voices makes me wonder why.
Will the silence ever decay?
If one is the answer than I’ll rather stay.

The sickness is spreading, my words are in vain.
The forest is screaming and dying off pain.
Even sunrise is not in time.
The moaning the whispers they make me insane.

Low are the voices that come from the rain.
Low are the voices that come from the rain.
As I sit here wondering why,
Low are the voices that come from the rain.
Track Name: Amazingly Fast Rocket
I go, I fly, I am in space tonight.
I go, In style, blasting into the sky.

And when I float up so high there’s a change I get lost way up there oh my oh my.
Don't let me cross planet ego cause they capture me for good, I just might die.

I go, I fly, I am in space tonight.
I go, In style, blasting into the sky.

And when I’m done I’ll have to make my way back home.
Full throttle, hyperspeed on, nitro shit here I come.
