about

"I will not leave this place, be a reminder, that our home has not always been an empty world"

Back in 2010 in vocalist Manuel and drummer Nico founded DECAYING DAYS in Münster, north-west germany, to shape their musical passions in the rehearsal room. Some time and changes went by, until the release of the first demo-tape in 2013. Later in 2015 the current line-up with Daniel and Tobias on the guitars and Hannes on the bass guitar was consolidated.

Initially driven by the dark energy of finnish Death-Doom, the last two years of songwriting expanded the versatility of their universe of sound. Severe riffs and memorable Melodic Death Metal-melodies in ‘Waves of neglect’ accompany with endtime-elegies of ‘Empty world’ and progressive trips and acoustic-guitars are giving drifts of the 90ies-Opeth aesthetics. DECAYING DAYS are entering even more new terrain, when death-growls and polyphonic clean-vocals build a symbiosis in ‘A long way down’.

In collaboration with Jörg Uken (known for productions with God Dethroned, Dew-Scented among many others) the band spent a good time recording at the Soundlodge-Studio to finish their first album.

PRESS

"Decaying Days tap into a melancholy that is not despairing but is beginning to wither in the face of perseverance. The German melodic death-doom act’s incredible debut spends all of its emotional time and effort in that moment where the man downed begins to rise again, with wounds still fresh but eyes and spirit alight. This is a place we’re all familiar with, and one that spurs on change for the better. Decaying Days rekindles the flames which made one stand up and dust themselves off, and while dreariness is the order of the day it never once enervates the spirit. This is a nostalgia trip, but not in the genre sense; instead, it’s a trip down one’s personal memory lane to the place where they decided to improve their life." - angrymetalguy.com

Track Name: Eye of the Storm
I look around and all I see
is madness, hate, misanthropy
but inside the eye of the storm
reigns nothing but serenity

I try to pull you all inside
the centre of my fortress walls
but the gates are down, the trench is deep
full of blood and tears you weep

Join me
I am in the eye of the storm
nothing can touch me

Come on
try to climb the walls of mundane and join me
nothing can reach me

Join me
I am in the eye of the storm
nothing can touch me

Come on
try to climb the walls of mundane and join me
nothing can reach me

Chaos is surrounding me
Everything is threatening
The shot of a gun, the hug of a friend
For me there is no difference

Here in this secluded place
my mind can rest and never face
the cruelty of the world
the pain of being left behind

Join me
I am in the eye of the storm
nothing can touch me

Come on
try to climb the walls of mundane and join me
nothing can reach me

Join me
I am in the eye of the storm
nothing can touch me

Come on
try to climb the walls of mundane and join me
nothing can reach me

Help me
escaping the eye of the storm
nothing can save me
Track Name: Waves of Neglect
In this forgotten world we are
the ones to forget our failures
to wander with our eyes closed
not longing to understand
our soul‘s abyss

Our lifes made out of false promises
denied our small piece of heaven
inside we seem to neglect ourselves
and linger

This forsaken world
this world is so full of denial
noone cares for a change
a change of our lives

Bathe in innocence
like everyone of our kind
you might be the first one to die

Our lifes made out of false promises
denied our small piece of heaven
inside we seem to neglect ourselves
and linger
Track Name: Empty World
Waking up, realizing the absence of sound
empty streets, no sign of life
just the bitter taste of guilt

I‘ll stay here
I cry every night
for the dreams long forgotten
and if I leave this place
no one will notice
because I‘m all alone here in this empty world

Empty streets, no sign of life
everyone left long ago
winter coated everything with ashes

We had our chance and lost it
too many failures, too many cries in vain
unheard, ignored.

And now large amounts of pulverized debris
and molten earth are pulled up into the mushroom cloud
it now contains billions of highly radioactive particles
this is where radioactive fallout is born

I‘ll stay here
I cry every night
for the memories that are fading
I will not leave this place
Be a reminder
That our home has not always been an empty world
Track Name: A Thousand Suns
I stare
into the fire
I stare
into the fire

Brighter than the sun
the sky is burning
permanent shadows
etched into the dust

The sum of all fears
the force of life reversed into
the fire of a thousand suns
the blessing of a painless passing

I remember the day
Not so long ago
I was ready to fly
Ready to die

My mind was blinded by pride
I could end this war
A simple task
just drop the load

My gift
to men
is to end the hate
I brought
light day
to the darkest hour

I am
become Death
the destroyer
of worlds

Bring daylight to the night
Sunshine to the winter
End the darkness
Destroy the cold

Greyish snow is falling
Clouds of dust are rolling down the hills
Human remains and debris
unified in the winter’s breeze

The sum of all fears
the force of life reversed into
the fire of a thousand suns
the blessing of a painless passing

I will cleanse these lands
With the fire of a thousands suns
filth and dirt will fade
only light will remain

Peace is inbound
silence, serenity
there is no time to be afraid
when you see the flash

I‘m Fire
I‘m Death
I became the destroyer of worlds

I‘m Fire
I‘m Death
I became the destroyer of worlds

I‘m Fire
I am Death
I became the destroyer of worlds

There’s no return
There’s no return
There’s no return
There’s no return
There’s no return
Track Name: The Fall of Nightmares
The light of day turns into night
and there is no place to hide myself
my demons crawl up on me now
hiding in the shadows

Eyes can‘t see the horrors coming to me when it‘s dark
your eyes can‘t see the horrors coming to me when it‘s dark

Don‘t close your eyes
never go to sleep tonight
don‘t surrender to the sweet embrace

Don‘t close your eyes
never go to sleep tonight
because phobetor is waiting for you now

My power‘s slowly fading away
the shadows closing in around me
he still is waiting in the dark
but soon he will show his face

Eyes can‘t see the horrors coming to me when it‘s dark
your eyes can‘t see the horrors coming to me when it‘s dark

Don‘t close your eyes
never go to sleep tonight
don‘t surrender to the sweet embrace

Don‘t close your eyes
never go to sleep tonight
because phobetor is waiting for you now

Come to me
you look tired
why don‘t you just rest for a moment?
relax
you‘re safe here
it‘s no use fighting
you have to sleep
welcome to my domain

Come close your eyes
you need to go to sleep tonight
come surrender to my sweet embrace
Track Name: Long Way Down
Now the leaves are fallen
In the silence of the night
The sail is set and finally
the wind sings lullabies

No mountain left unconquered
And all the borders have been crossed
No words are left unspoken to give comfort to the heart
And I am ready to leave this place forevermore
The voice that calls for me is getting louder now to
To embark on a journey towards new shores

Down down down
My unmoored soul may drift on stranger tides
Than any man in this world knows of

Long way down
and be overthrown by the weakest winds
winds that would not even stir a hair

In the valleys of fear I wander
a feeble leaf, adrift and limp
descended from a withered tree - my sole aim is to leave
And I’m ready to leave this world forevermore
the blasts are getting stronger - time is running out
my mind is clear when I arrive

The doubt returned
We never thought we’d have to fight
For our lives
We cry - We die

Now the leaves have fallen
In the silence of the night
The sail was set and finally
the wind keeps passing by
Track Name: Stargazers
To reach for the light
you are holding up high
to fulfill the goal
That you once have been told

You forgot everyone
including yourself
you need to rest
and pull down your shelf

Stargazers
far beyond reality
Stargazers
don’t miss your life
while hunting your dreams

Is this a fight
you’re able to win?
or is it worth
to die within?

Dieing inside
Your world runs dry
Slaving away
Suppressed by your inner self
Don’t forget who you are
And who you were in better days
No defect
And no need to please

Stargazers
trying to change your destiny
Stargazers
don’t waste your life
While hunting your dreams

You’re still standing tall
and grew your strength
your scars did heal
you climbed the throne
it’s done
you won
alone
Track Name: Tempest
The tide has come
to cleanse the world from mankind
salvation come
the day of judgement has arrived

Rise, rise
a new start has to be made
defy the lies
and end all the flaws of our kind
the time is right
no hope inside
we were wrong

The time is now
to rid the world of this plague
it ends today
nothing will remain

We won‘t leave before we are sacrificed
this judgement day will be the dawn of a new world

Rise, rise
a new start has to be made
defy the lies
and end all the flaws of our kind
we will rise once more - once more
