Sven B. Schreiber This Portuguese band tags itself "Symphonic Landscape Rock", but heaven knows what this is supposed to mean... ;-) Basically, the music sounds quite like US American post-hardcore, but with some symphonic arrangements that become even more prominent on "Vessel Reactor", taking the band on more "proggy" fields. On this EP, the vocals and guitars still rule clearly. Favorite track: Poisoned Waters.

about

After a brief hiatus caused by the departure of Ben (Drummer) to Germany at the end of 2008, Hiata releases in 2009 the EP “Poisoned Waters RE-issue”, with 6 of the 15 songs presented in the previous album “Poisoned Waters” (2006), with the participation of the new members and the new drummer (Johnny Drummer) who joined the band in early 2009 to fill up the space left by Ben. Hiata – “ The recording of this EP shows the need to transpose the concert experience into the songs, and to introduce new ideas built over these two years. The EP is a more current and representative of what we are doing now, with a new and fresh sound.” Self called Symphonic Landscape Rock, the sound of Hiata, influenced by the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s rock, presents a variety of textures that lead to a landscape scenario, colored by orchestral arrangements, where the dichotomy light /shadow is always present. Besides the “Poisoned Waters RE-issue” EP, Hiata released the video-single “Poisoned Waters”, Airing on Vh1 and MTV PT, produced, illustrated and animated by the artist João Rubim in England and the new official website (www.hiata.com). The band is currently rehearsing regularly in order to promote its work live, while they give life to their next album.

Track Name: Fareyed
Centuries of history are locked up and encrypted in the mind
It will be centuries more… if no one is able to decrypt the code.
Considering the person and the image that you will never bind
If you’ll keep wondering…how
You won’t be as one,
You will never be bound.
You look at me as a familiar face
Uncover the inside (uncover the inside)
Mind imprisoned, soul turns weak
So set free…
“Are you listening? This is what you have to do…”
Don’t listen to that voice.
“So do exactly what I’ve planed for you…”
Reject those evil thoughts
You won’t breathe until you escape.
So stop this mist, open your mind…fareyed.
Centuries of history, locked up and encrypted in your mind
If you’ll keep wondering…how
You keep wondering, you keep wondering.
You keep wondering, you keep wondering.
You stand in here, a four dimensional being
Uncover the inside (uncover the inside)
Don’t let the time lower your esteem.
I guess you shouldn’t care.
But I’ll be here forever…
You keep your mind filled with thoughts that you don’t even need.
You keep your mind busy on thoughts that you don’t even believe.
So leave them for another day…
So we’re going to find time together (Set free, set free, fareyed, fareyed)
So we’re going to find it together (Set free, set free, fareyed, fareyed)
So leave it for another day, I guess the felling was elsewhere.
The days, the hours, the minutes, the seconds, it’s over, stop counting
Welcome! Your now absent of time…
Free… I guess I need it this.
You don’t have to relate if you are going to fast…
Slow… Slow… (You don’t have to relate, you just want to go ahead)
Slow down.
Track Name: Floating Isles
Why?
Nothing will come between us I promise
In that place where we are
It’s not the same for sure
It’s not the same for sure
And during this empty moments
We place our minds where we both are able to try
Nothing will come between what we have
In this place where it starts
With me you’re safe here for the moment.
With me you’re safe here for the moment.
In some place really far, exactly where you are
You let void in between islands
In some place really far
I can see you but I’m still trying…too reach you…
I want it bad, but guess that’s my last frustration…
I want it bad to connect… that’s my last frustration…
One in ten, the best…that’s my last frustration…
I want it back, erase the past forget frustration.
With me you’re safe here for the moment.
With me you’re safe here for the moment.
In some place really far, exactly where you…
I saw you walk away, with you a bridge faded
In some place really far, exactly where you are
I can see you but I’m still trying…too reach you…
I saw you walk away, with you a bridge faded
Fear as replaced our love, distance between islands, grown
It’s unbelievable; so many years have past…
My head… since you were gone…you didn’t mind! (I curse these floating isles)
It’s unpredictable, what will happen when “I step the sky”, will I stand or die?
Track Name: Fuckin dance
You’re giving up for awhile
Or maybe you’ll stay for sometime
Your friends arrive, now you’re felling at home, felling at ease.
The lights start flaming you’re on stage
The audience…the band approaches…burn the skin.
We have to hammer the walls between the band and the stalls
The concert starts and you’ll now travel until curtains fall
The lights are fading, the music fills the air
You breathe the air, you breathe the air.
Flowing is the back is flowing to the front is flowing from the sides
The flow has hit the site.
You have to get up; it’s time to keep it up
We just have to bring the high; you just have to feel the vibe.
If you’re feeling this, you feel the height
A queen bee on the hive
So keep it up, so move with us
Feel the heat we send
It comes back to us…
Dim off the light
It’s how we really like in here.
Dim off the light…
So you’re coming in, enjoy the night.
Be yourself and feel the vibe and fucking dance!
So you’re coming in, enjoy the night.
Be yourself and feel the vibe and fucking dance!

Track Name: I might live again
Into a riddle…into a riddle…
Why am I so scared to live again?
Tomorrow maybe too late
Fighting the ill, fighting the illness
You don’t need me near to decide.
So I find me here, unbridled with all those fears
It’s five pm (and I) don’t know too much
And so ever we may know…
We might live again
And so ever we may know too much…
Into a riddle…into a riddle…
Someone is safe
If you’re able to create
Fighting the ill, fighting the illness
You don’t need me near to decide.
So you find me here again, thinking out loud…
“Wonder if it is a next life to come?” (It’s keeping me stranding here)
And so ever we may know…
We might live again
And so ever we may know too much…
And so ever we may know…
I might live again
And so ever we may know…
I might live again!
I might live again!
I might live again! (It’s keeping me stranding here)
I might live again! (It’s keeping me stranding here)
I might live again! (Would you have thought about it?)
Track Name: Poisoned Waters
They are attracted to this dark lagoon and they don’t even know why
One by one they’re falling; one by one they’re drowning
There’s another way out, another way out of this hole and they don’t even know (how)
Drinking the water, the killing has really started.
Drinking the water, the blood is infected by virus.
Drinking the water, liquid destroys the body.
Drinking the water, the laws of physics applied.
They tie their hands behind their back and drown
They start shacking as the veins corrupt.
The stress, the rush, a paranoid disaster…
Waiting for their turn to die
I know exactly how you feel inside
This time you’re going home…not losing hope.
The murder, the murder, you murdered…
Massive murder
Poisoned waters, drinking it fast, they’re drinking it fast
I can not rescue you all…
Poisoned waters, drinking
Poisoned waters, drinking
Track Name: Topgun
Be the one! Being the one…it’s really hard!
You can be in denial
You can prove your point or fight for reason.
But it’s not yours nor our.
It can be dead on arrival though it doesn’t matter if you question it
You will have your motives.
We’re moving on, we’re changing subjects…
Jump around from issue to wish.
You may sit there in silence or talk about it for hours, talk about it for hours.
Disagree or agree if you understood it…
Decisions are always commitments (you can describe)
But real it’s stronger than fiction (but you can try)
Be one with the tune and focus on the sense.
It started when you got this title wrong…
It ends when you let go and feel the song.
We wonder if you will ever ear this song…
And tell us what you know, what you thought before.
(Be the one, be the one, if you have not ended this, the meaning may seem shallow and empty, don’t think!
If you analyse deep, it won’t be forgotten.)
Be the one…
Brainwashed, no ideas…
We could manipulate but the meaning is hidden.
So find it under disguises…behind!
A brainstorm, confused ideas…
Where waves are words, high tides, heavy rain, clouds thinking…
But the wind helps the thoughts, blows the clouds…
Sun rises, blinded eyes and you are still confused…
It started when you got this title wrong…
It ends when you let go and feel the song.
We wonder if you will ever ear this song…
And tell us what you know, what you thought before.
(Be the one, be the one, if you have not ended this, the meaning may seem shallow and empty, don’t think!
If you analyse deep, it won’t be forgotten.)

Deceived by the meaning that is hidden…
