1.
Wasted soul Bathed in soil Lost my home with you gone Gigantic wave it took our faith Remember once we dreamed of us All the walls in our souls Long ago you were loved Long ago I was loved All the hearts dreamed of us All I had of joy now falls I lost my home Lost my home with you gone
2.
Grief and pain Loathe and ache Loss that hurts the most Grief that kills all joy Dream in pain Invent my reign Fool myself and watch your face Hear you say you call my name Bathe in rain and drop this rage Clear my veins And breathe your breath Hold my pain Throw it all away My rage tossed away Cleanse my ache Wash it all away My pain tossed away
3.
Years flew by That life is done Now my time, my end, nearby Doleful child Wasted lives Mourning wives Husbands cry All my world, my life, my role, bygone All this time I knew that joy won’t last I knew that joy won’t last My joy will die
4.
Breathing bones Walking void Lift my voice Bring some joy Make me whole Not some ghost Make me more than flesh and bones Through my blood you can take form Now you become flesh and bone
5.
I see dim light. It's tired stars glows in the arms of the night. Death always keeps close. The roses have faded and turned to dust. tree crowns are touched by autumn rust. Like a trembling leaf Falling into the unknown - all these years of grief crushed my chest like a stone. Only the darkness reflects and multiplies. I still can't find hope among the lies.
6.
(Hide) Hide myself (Myself) From you (From you) Hide from you (From me) Hide my pain away Close my eyes in vain I can’t Can’t hide myself away (I can’t hide myself away) I don’t want to feel you I just want to be with you In my mind I see you I wish you could see me too In my heart I have you I don’t know what else to do about you All this pain won’t go away I just try to hide in vain
7.
Hope and joy they left my soul Now my home is death and loss Send your heart, your eyes, my home I, I know your blood comes home From my blood I’ll bring you home Flesh and bones replace your stone I, I know your heart comes home From, from my blood I bring you home
8.
All my life will start to go Oh my love just hold my hand All my life will lose its light Oh my love just hold my hand My love dies as days pass Death and life It’s a thin line All my life will fade, die out When I die just hold me tight Keep my love and let me go

about

This album is the final chapter of a series about grief, which started with “Per Aspera ad Astra”. This was the initial shock of my father´s passing and continued with “Every Day, A Funeral” and “Stay With Me When You´re Gone” which represent very nostalgic stages of my life.

They were years of disbelief, confusion, and doubt. But something unexpected happened. One day, I knew that he was coming back home. Two years after my father passed away, I was able to welcome my son to this world. Now I know, that, through my blood, I brought him home. And this album will tell that story.

In loving memory of Sergio González Bombardiere (11.4.1954 - 6.1.2021)

*REVIEWS*

Metal Temple - 10/10 score: "The grief within these songs is nearly palpable. RTTS has never been a band to shy away from the darkness but this is the project in its most organic and exposed form." - Justin Wittenmeier
www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/cd_3/d_2/rise-to-the-sky-two.htm

Ave Noctum: 9/10 score - "the story being told adds so many layers to the music and the experience as a whole, that I recommend delving into it, even if you’re lucky enough that you can’t relate to the events and emotions involved" - Ellie
avenoctum.com/2023/06/20/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief-meuse-music-tragedy-prod/

Angry Metal Guy: 3.5/5 score (Very Good): "There is a level of catharsis here that hasn’t been so strongly present on previous releases, and it does much to elevate Two Years of Grief to stand, easily, among Catalán’s best." - Twelve
www.angrymetalguy.com/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief-review/

Hotel Hobbies: "Writer intense tragedy laden epics, he creates vast soundscapes for his sweeping swathes of atmospheric laments. Constantly writing, Catalán has produced another album full of plaintive gravitas" - Stuart Ball

GBHBL: 9/10 Score - "Once again Rise to the Sky has crafted something deeply personal and deeply affecting with Two Years of Grief" - Carl Fisher

Musipedia of Metal 8/10 : "The pain that is in every single second of this album is real and genuine, and that is why this album works so well." - Paul Scoble
musipediaofmetal.blogspot.com/2023/06/reviews-y-bleeding-rise-to-sky.html

Metal Epidemic: 3.5/5 "...they execute their chosen style exceptionally well, immersing listeners in a dark embrace." - Carlos Tirado
www.metalepidemic.com/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief/

Mournful Sounds: "Two Years of Grief is the closest album to the first in the series in terms of emotional intensity and evocative strength, thanks to the admirable cohesion between the power and ferocity of death metal and the melancholic pace of doom at its most painful. " - Stefano Cavanna
mournfulsounds.com/2023/06/15/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief/

Nine Circles: "Two Years of Grief is a powerful record, a testament to Rise To The Sky’s impressive, creative output. " - Hera

Science of Noise - 8/10 score: "Doom metal de alta calidad que emana mucha melancolía y una cautivadora y desgarradora belleza" -Jaime Arjona
www.scienceofnoise.net/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief/

Zwaren metallen: 80/100 - "Two Years Of Grief is an impressively intense album, in which the grayness manages to take possession of your heart and you are carried away in the feeling that Rise To The Sky wants to create. Impressively intense, imbued with emotion." - Patrick Verhoeven
zwaremetalen.com/albumrecensies/rise-to-the-sky-two-years-of-grief

Jamm Tomorrow: "Two Years of Grief evolves as the record progresses, gradually and very generally moving away from embittered, clenched-teeth fury to irrecoverable melancholia before finally making way to lighter shades of resolution and release." - JAMMT
