about

Danger! Earthquake! hit the ground running with their breathtaking debut album 'Dystopia'. Creating a sound that is heavy and energetic but remains fresh and exciting throughout.

Listeners are treated to a tapestry of melodic piano, chiors, strings and bells that cut bold and beautiful melodies over a driving and definitively heavy metal inspired rhythm section. Dual vocal outfit Allan and Vonnie seamlessly bounce from light to dark and together speak a powerful message on par with the energy in the music behind them.

Danger! Earthquake! put a new innovative spin on the post-hardcore genre. Striking a balance between heavy and harmonious and forming a sound that’s extremely addictive and highly unique.

Track Name: Darkened Sky
I close my eyes to see a dead dark world of paradise
A disowned land; main streets of misled youths in paradise

The sky has fallen; the truth calls out to me
I can feel the ocean start to rise;let the war depart
Who will make it out alive?

Now it's time for us to forget; all the lies, that we are fed

Strangers to this dark world, held captive in our minds
Are we just the dead walking?
And who have we become?
Fragments of what we used to be
Cut the chains and set us free

These are my visions burning inside of the earth
Misled we march into the void
Breaking through a revolution
lie after lie and lie after lie

Now it's time for us to forget; all the lies, that we are fed

Strangers to this dark world, held captive in our minds
Are we just the dead walking?
And who have we become?
Fragments of what we used to be
Cut the chains and set us free

I'm lying in this bed of lies
Surroundings fade and everything dies
I can't escape, I cannot flee
I cannot see whats wrong with me
I tried so hard to turn the page
But every page I disengage

Strangers to this dark world, held captive in our minds
Are we just the dead walking?
And who have we become?
Fragments of what we used to be
Cut the chains and set us free
Track Name: Crooked Empire
Sacrifice all the lifeless pigs who stand above the new generation
Sailing oceans to raise hell upon our life
I'm the deceiver, who brings misery towards the political man
Now your life, is a lie

Controlled by the army of a thousand men, at war, at sea
Controlled by the army of a thousand men, inside of me
For years we've lived a chosen path, carved in stone, chained to walls
Blue printed new designs programmed before us

Hold the future of mankind
Hold the secrets from the prisoners of society
Rise and shine from the ranks of the rich and poor

Controlled by the army of a thousand men, at war, at sea
Controlled by the army of a thousand men, inside of me
For years we've lived a chosen path, carved in stone, chained to walls
Blue printed new designs programmed before us

Are we, secretly, prisoners?
Will these eyes watching over, really guide us to victory?
Stop running away from the race that you refuse to face

Controlled by the army of a thousand men, at war, at sea
Controlled by the army of a thousand men, inside of me
For years we've lived a chosen path, carved in stone, chained to walls
Blue printed new designs programmed before us

Are we, secretly, prisoners?
Track Name: The Vision Within
Re-align the stars tonight; I’m taking back my life
We are coming home

I am refusing to give up on myself
I’ve got the light all around me; the flight that’s inside me

Set free my destiny
I am no longer restrained, above all else I stand
I’m not the crooked man who hides behind the shadows
Let go of everything that I know will hold me down

Believe me, we are coming home
Believe me, you are not alone
Believe me, believe me

I am refusing to give up on myself
I’ve got the light all around me; the flight that’s inside me
Re-align the stars tonight I’ve got a fire inside and it’s not subsiding
I’m taking back my life

I am leaving behind all that I know will hold me back
From what I envision within myself

We set a light to fire, we counted worlds, as one
If we set the world on fire we could burn in hell, as one
We counted the worlds as one
We counted these worlds, as one

I am refusing to give up on myself
I’ve got the light all around me; the flight that’s inside me
Re-align the stars tonight I’ve got a fire inside and it’s not subsiding
I’m taking back my life

It’s set in stone; we're coming home; there’s two faces in the mirror
We counted worlds; you're not alone; there’s two faces in the mirror
We set a light; we’re taking flight; there’s two faces in the mirror
It’s set in stone; we're coming home; there’s two faces in the mirror

I am refusing to give up on myself
I’ve got the light all around me; The flight that’s inside me
Re-align the stars tonight I’ve got a fire inside and it’s not subsiding
I’m taking back my life

Believe me, we are coming home
Believe me you are not alone
Believe me, believe me
Track Name: In Hope
Who are we if we're not paving our own path?
Every single day brings the beginning of a new chance
Set aside the past and voices telling us, that our dreams are out of reach
We can never set ourselves free

This time we’re holding on

This time we're holding on to everything and running to the very end
To the very end
And now we're letting go, we'll take control of all the demons in our heads

Stand against the tide and hope we'd never fall
Who are we if we let go of what we're fighting for?
Wishing we could bury all these things at sea
So that we can breathe again; show the world what we can be

Who are we if we let go of what were fighting for?

This time we're holding on to everything and running to the very end
To the very end
And now we're letting go, we'll take control of all the demons in our heads

We risk our lives for fucking snakes, to split the world apart
Can you see the burning fire in our eyes
The god forsaken demons in our lives

In hope we reach for the sky
We reach out for the sky
In hope we reach for the sky

Now I’ve had enough, and I’m out to kill
Define this hollow calling, in my ears

This time we're holding on to everything and running to the very end
We’re running to the very end
And now we're letting go, we'll take control of all the demons in our heads
Track Name: Innocence Lost
I can barely breathe
Let alone the walk ahead
This long and winding road

I took an oath; I promised you that I would return
I am no longer an innocent man
I am enlightened; united around this flame
I sing my heart my soul; this is what I’ve become

The truth remains untold to me
And why do we fight for a world that isn’t worth dying for?
We are the soldiers made of gold
Excluding all the masses from the truth that remains untold

Manipulation, is the key of it all
With no explanations we fall
Constantly falling in repetitions
We hold this everlasting curse
Manipulation is the key
The truth remains untold to me

Manipulation is the key
The truth remains untold to me
