Lyrics

Death Defyers

no lyrics

The Decay

If you think about it We're born into decay I laugh about it When i want you to stay You leave me cold Just flesh and bones

If you think about it We're born into the strange I laugh about it When i want you to say You leave me cold Just flesh and bones

Your only son ...

Damaged in the Dark

You're my executioner Reveal a broken heart Twisted to devotion Execute a glance to me Your eyes infiltrate me You're a war machine

You're damaged in the dark Damaged in the heart Damaged by a stark, dark art

You're my empire My axe and army We're twisted to devotion You execute a glance to me Your eyes infiltrate me You're my war machine

You're damaged in the dark Damaged in the heart Damaged by a stark, dark art

The Bullet Catch

Destroy all of your possessions You don't owe me You don't own me

Antarctica

It's been so long since i heard from you give me time give me patience We're on the same wavelength I feel the sounds o the colours a landscape with nothing to hide but crystal blue i can see right through you you're cold like science the selfless truth you're ice cold antarctica

It's amazing, amazing what you do to me what you do to me

Reviews

  • Described as combining the visceral energy of Punk rock with the ethereal minimalism of contemporary composers such as Philip Glass and Bernard Herman.The band's sound is layered with a ghostly tension thats shaped by minimal string arrangements reminiscent of movie sound tracks such as Philip Glass's score for Tod Browning's 1931 adaption of 'Dracula'. The Phoenix Prestige's music inspires a bucolic feeling of seclusion, like clear glass sheets of Antarctic ice, only to be shattered by the sound of trashing guitars and pounding drums." - Infernal Records(c)
  • "An Irish band currently based in Hangzhou, the Phoenix Prestige craft gorgeous and epic songs, a rare blend of punk energy and prog-rock atmospherics, reminding us of a slightly louder Sigur Ros." -The Antidote, Logo, Shanghai.
  • "A three-piece power punch" - Suzhou, City Weekender
