The days passed slowly yet darkness came fast. It can't be illuminated, but filled: with dark and gloomy sound of Our Ceasing Voice. It's the perfect blend of hypnotizing ambient and something that once was Post-Rock.

Through their music and lyrics the Austrian band, founded in 2006, is telling the story of the passage of time, that's supposed to heal all wounds, of the things in life one can't escape.

Incorporating guest appearances by American singer-songwriter Matthew Ryan, as well as the typical, deep and almost dying vocals of Reinhard Obermeir, lead to tighter song structures while maintaining Our Ceasing Voice's full cinematic strengths. Thus, their new album will make sure sure you won't be able to escape your memory. Of everything that happened on that day last November.

Track Name: Afterglow
What if we would not forget
What if we would not regret
Could we feel the same
Would I need you the same
Shouldn't we just count on it?
To feel it again?

For in between the dawn and red afterglow
Lies the chance for us to be free
For in between the dawn and red afterglow
Lies the chance for the world to see
The beauty of it all
Track Name: Our Ceasing Voice & Matthew Ryan - Until Your Chest Explodes
60 years
Was all we got
Some liberation
An "equal" shot
Or so we thought
As Mum and Dad retired
With the TV on
The disenchantment choir
I walk the streets, these dead end streets
My head aglow, wanna go, where no man should go
The fight is fixed
And happiness
Is a dimmer grin
The thick is thin
Let's begin
Let's begin
No rights
No peace
We won't sleep
No sleep
This is War
It always was
From a bitter field, A better deal
The workers' cause

In highrise and in pit
We give our lives to it
In highrise and in pit
For as far as the eye can see
From them to you to me
And further than the eye can see...

Suffer that
Suffer that a while
But hold on
Until your chest explodes
What's right is right...
Track Name: One Of These Nights
Spring had come and the last snow was black with dirt and poison.
People everywhere seemed slow,
and behind their sunglasses
they were hiding the hollowness that one too many winters leave in everyone.
The days passed slowly yet darkness came fast
and, while the thin coffee in his dirty cup went from cool to cold,
he sat quietly and rolled another cigarette. It always got so quiet then.
Once again, he would watch the ceiling and dream about freedom,
hoping to see the past and the future in some perfect wedding march.
If only he could really close his eyes,
he could live in a dream and not in this constant fear of never really being awake.
"Do you miss me", she said.
But he can only hear the surface of things. He's unaware of the true absence of her voice.
Her eyes would forever shine to him as he sees her blowing him a kiss from a train.
Maybe one of these nights she'll finally step down from that giant ghost and whisper:
"Come on, let's dance."
Track Name: What Used To Be A Battle Song
And through the noise
I heard
A voice lose its heart and
Hum the words to my favorite song
'Bout falling down
'Bout falling down

"The heart may beat
But it beats retreat
To where false steps and dead ends lead"
Track Name: Our Ceasing Voice & Matthew Ryan - The Anniversary
You smiled at me
I smiled at you
I pulled you close
By the riverside
The traffic hummed like jets and tanks
Below the sky

You said you'd been thinking
That a place with a garden would be nice
I said someday soon my love
I said it twice

And you turned with the falling sun
Hard in your eyes
When the brightest light I'd ever seen 
Exploded from the cafe to the right

And just like that
I was thrown into the river
There was fire and chairs and broken glass
And a dust full of glitter

And I saw you drop
Like a cup from a table
And I howled with every sorrow in the world
as if it was able

To stop that moment
As if it would just rewind
When the horrors of another man
Swallowed mine

Was our anniversary
And 11/22
Will always be
The day that I lost you
Track Name: The City That Once Had A Name
I returned to the city that once had a name
'Cause after what happened, it could not be the same

But in a rain swept alley
Your sweet scent seemed to pervade
The oppressive air
And the clocks ticked slowly
As if their hands were afraid
To run out of time

We haven't met for what seemed like forever
5 or 6 years must have gone by
I tried to forget - what a hopeless endeavor
Nevertheless, I avoided your eyes
As if the halcyon past we had dreamed away
was something to think of "only some day"

And in the dead of an endless summer's night
I caught a glimpse of what once seemed eternal
And underneath the stars which lost their light
That once seemed infernal
I reminisced about a long lost future
In which the halcyon past we had dreamed away
Was something to think of "maybe one day"
Track Name: Jaded
It's been twelve weeks
And all the grief
They always bragged but lied about
Had left the streets
We used to drive and walk around

And just dark deeds
Delight the eye
That's usually caught to mope around
Forbidding change
We used to dream, not doubt about

And soon the singing mourning doves
Escaped their world of make believe
And as there's silence from above
I'll leave behind what they deceived
Track Name: Like Wildfire
And outside I still hear the screams
In the rustling of leaves
On a september's eve
I guess they are here
To say their farewell
To fall's first freeze
But also to tell
The forthcoming heat
Will spread like a fever
And strew ember
Of that day last november

With you by my side
All this darkness will be light
