    While keeping their DIY approach and their wide musical palette heard on their 2017 self-titled EP, Toulouse’s hard rock trio Distortion Ride is expanding to new musical horizons with their first full-length album “Burning Waves of Silence”.
    Distortion Ride delivers an eclectic collection of music from blues based heavy riffs to melancholic progressive landscapes. Therefore, their music sometimes leans towards psychedelic rock, progressive rock or metal.
    Olivier (drums) : “We like to keep the door open for different genres of music, that’s how we ended up with a reggae part on ‘Where The River Ends’ !”
    The album features all the elements of the band’s 2017 EP (wide dynamics between heavy & soft parts, uncommon time signatures, bluesy & operatic vocals, expressive guitar solos…) with a will to blend them together more consistently.
    Production-wise, the band aimed for a slightly polished but natural sounding record. Matt (vocals / guitar) : “Except for the 1st part of ‘Stardust’, we recorded the whole album without a metronome and we didn’t go too crazy with the overdubs. For the end section of ‘Night Of The Black Snow’ we even recorded a real musicbox to avoid using virtual instruments while I emulated a cello by playing my guitar with a cello bow.”
    To highlight that organic feel, the mastering was done by Andy Jackson, longtime Pink Floyd & David Gilmour engineer.
    With different events impacting Matt’s life during the writing of the album and the current global situation, the lyrical content of the album focuses on grief and death, the feeling of inadequacy, the ecosystem’s destruction (climate crisis, solastalgia) and the search for some kind of spirituality.
    The cover artwork shows an embodiement of these concepts.

Going Down 03:22
Look at your city, full of gold Look at your city, that's gonna blow You melt through the night And you still dont get it right Human made toxic desert land We're going down, we're burning We're going down, we're burning We're going down Look at your TV, full of lies Look at your TV, watching you die All that you built Crushed by your own feet Human made global holocaust Down, we're burning We're going down, we're burning We're going down We're going down, we're burning We're going down, we're burning We're going down

The playful light fades away And we grieve this day Tomorrow has lost its way Walking through decay Wild voices come and go And I watch them fall When the sun is long gone Does the pain go on ? The night sky is just a lie And you wait for the stars While the hill crumbles and dies I see you cry Unholy blood is here to stay No more book to pray When the sun is long gone Does the pain go on ? Where you go Where you go I see you fall I see you try I see you burning Where you go Where you go I see you fall I see you try I see you burning down Greedy liars Oh they fill the sky Higher With fire I'll bring the night Where you go Where you go I see you fall I see you try I see you burning Where you go Where you go I see you fall I see you try I see you burning

Cold 04:16
The rain keeps calling your name While the pain remains the same I sit and see the shattered skies unfold Why does sunlight feel so cold ? Cold Winter bells are calling you home While we grieve here alone Have you found a hidden star to behold ? Or is life just random and cold ? Cold Silence from the skies / Bleeding on our own Violence from the skies / Born to die alone Silence from the skies / Are we left alone ? Cold

Call a light abroad and bring your eyes into the fire Break the giant stones and watch your life through their laughter Cast a spell alone and bring the sky a little closer Call a storm alone and pray for the mighty thunder While the burning waves of silence grow Ship through the clouds and sweep the pain away Cast a spell alone and hope it's gone forever Call a storm alone and steal the lightning's power While the burning waves of silence grow Ship through the clouds and sweep the pain away Away (x6) Ignite the king of thoughts and watch the smoke grow higher Raise the wooden bow and shoot the golden tiger While the burning waves of silence grow Ship through the clouds and sweep the pain away Away (x6) Break the silence of your words Destroy the blur with a restless sword A wall of stones cripples my mind Searching names is an endless game Is there a place to rest my head Heaven never called my name

I cried for the light under nights of stones Memories fade since you're gone I lost your hand on the way to the promised land I lost your hand on the way to the promised land Sweet hop and malt to calm my mind Gimme more and more to flood my brain Would you take my hand on the way to no man's land ? Would you take my hand on the way to no man's land ? Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer Forgot my way home Don't wanna bleed alone Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer Can't find a good soul In this whole crazy world Gimme one more beer I cried for the light under nights of stones Memories will fade 'til I'm gone I lost my head on the way to no man's land I lost my head on the way to no man's land Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer Forgot my way home Don't wanna bleed alone Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer Can't find a good soul In this whole crazy world Gimme one more Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer My heart has grown cold As my blood got old Gimme one more beer Gimme one more beer I laugh at the sky Just before I say goodbye Gimme one more beer

You bring the night and steal my fire Yet I try to burn higher Yes you bring the night and steal my fire Yet I try to burn higher Ashes fade in the rain And I stand where the river ends Where the river ends

We fly through the night And break the clouds With thunder and steel We'll burn the east While they sleep With thunder and steel Will we dive into the water Or die by fire ? Night Screams Is there a way to get out of theses scenes ? Death Calls Is there a life to live after this hell ? Now hell is falling From the sky We all will die Melted asphalt And roasted flesh We all will die Innocent cries all through the night Burning alive Night Screams Is there a way to get out of theses scenes ? Death Calls Is there a life to live after this hell ?
