Afterimage, The - Onyx Lyrics




Unassuming truths become remedial for shades of devotion,
I know, since my soul is on display for nothing but scrutiny

Stare in my direction and catch a glimpse of who I'm becoming
While the world loses its colour by the rain
I'm finding myself to be completely desaturated, adhering to pointless endeavors

I'm finding myself to be completely desaturated, adhering to pointless endeavors
I am wandering, I'm not following
(I am wandering)
I am wandering never following
I am wandering, I am not following

My thoughts are perpetuating into an infinite sequence, and in turn I'm unable to utter a single word with confidence
I'm losing passion, lacking feeling
Fading colours, from a deep red to a dismal grey

I am everyone, yet no one at the same time
I passage through channels toward my own lifetime, recognizing I'll never be conscious again

My eternity resembles a single instant
Dwelling in all regions and leaving no imprint
I'm in touch with infinity and visionless
(The visionless)

Unassuming truths become remedial for shades of devotion
I know, since my soul is on display for nothing but scrutiny

My thoughts are perpetuating into an infinite sequence, and in turn I'm unable to utter a single word
I'm losing confidence
I'm losing passion, lacking feeling
Fading colours

  22. Yeon Ji Sung

    Still consistently blown away by these guys. The guitarists play so damn well off of each other.

  24. Tave Garcia

    1:57 wtf just happened? D=

  25. JonnyRottenGaming

    Why did you guys stop making music? Such a good song.... did ya guys break up? If so, that's sad..... You guys remind me of "I Am Abomination", and a bunch of other bands too ;] Your singer sounds EXACTLY like theirs. lol

  26. Zachary Riv

    This is sick! did you guys name your band after the rush song? lol.

  27. winter

    0:58 I swear I've heard that riff (or something like it) in another song... Maybe it's just deja vu, but it's really bothering me.

    Edit: Pretty sure I was thinking of "Smoke Monster" by The Word Alive.

  28. Gavin Juge

    yeah that sounds easy... (help)

    giant dicks in my ass this song is awesome!

  33. yeni bakare

    I just found my new favorite band

  34. Byte MUSIC

    Where the fuck have I been since May 15th 2014???

  35. priceyPR1CE

    can someone explain how he gets that tone at 1:57

    Ulrik Linstad

    Do you even Tony Danza, bro?

    Alex Mills

    kinguvdecent2 get your normal lead tone and if you're using a digital processor like an axe fx or pod it'll make it easier, but put a pitch shifter and put it a semitone or half note higher or lower and set the volume to 50% so both notes clash at the same volume :)

    Allan Madhuram

    You don't need all pitch shifters. Just have a standard crisp djent tone (low gain, high mid tone that rings all notes when you play chordy stuff). The sound he is creating in that section is all tapping and slides and stuff like that.

    fishfoshh

    That odd sound is created by recording two tracks, one of them exactly a half-step lower or higher than the other. It's minor 2nd harmonization.

  36. sinan vidi Lazuardi

    how he change the EMG sized pickups to Passive pickups?

    Ivan A.

    Plastic covered EMG's for 7-8-9 strings, are soapbars size, so they are a bit longer than a standart pickups. But they have the standart mounting holes placement (like every other brands passive/active pickups), and same two screws mounting. So when you switch from soapbars pickups to standart, you don't need to do any carving, maybe just bend mounting legs a little. And you don't need to drill any additional holes, if you don't want to instal a mount rings, to hide soapbars cavity (as you seen in this video, cavitis looks larger, than they need to be for a standart sized pickup)

  37. The dank meme machine

    you guys have gotta come to australia

  38. Jonathan Mendoza

    It blows my mind that this only has 3k likes for the amount of views it has! Like wtf ppl!

  39. themanwithamission

    Love the music and playthrough. The vocalist reminds me of the guy from I Am Abomination. Really good.

  40. Kaspira

    Damn... I wanna play this so bad

  41. lepermessia4

    7 string polyphia with vox ;-)

  44. Sergio Duarte

    what pick ups are those?

    fishfoshh

    bareknuckle aftermaths

    Sergio Duarte

    Beautiful, I have this exact guitar but it came with active blackouts and I'm not a fan of active pickups, did u have to re wire everything to put those Bk?

    Wayne - O

    yea man you need to change all the active electronics to passive

    TheVine

    What guitar is this?

  45. Lucas D

    Can anyone recomend me any other band with a similar sounding to Afterimage? I've been so hooked to this song.

    IICJZII2

    I'd recommend Divine Realm, Arthur Amity and Intervals (all instrumental but with a somewhat similar sound) also check out Reflections (their new album "The Color Clear" is incredible, I think fans of this band would enjoy them) and some Slice The Cake material :)

    Blak Deldo

    Invent, Animate

    TraumaxStyle

    Definitely listen to Valleys! Very similar style

    Paul Livgren

    Save us from the archon is very similar and good.

    alice margereta

    Amber Sea, Dali Thundering Concept (really fucking heavy), Ever Forthright

    These guys are reeeeally mathy btw

  46. Justin Farrar

    anyone know the model of the guitar he plays?

    MisterBandsman

    +j Far Schecter Blackjack ATX C-7 with different pickups. Probably Bareknuckles

  47. zezuntxiduntxi

    amazing!

  48. Дима Немерченко

    So Good duds)

  49. Brandon Walton

    Does anyone know where to get this guitar???!!! I've tried schemer custom designs and the not even the body type/color/pinstripe is available

    Alvaro Llana Garcia

    It's just a blackjack atx c-1 with bareknuckle pickups on it.

    Brandon Walton

    thanks!!

    Kvlt Goat

    +Alvaro Llana Garcia ATX C-7

    Alvaro Llana Garcia

    @Eddie's Guitars yup

  50. DaimaTV

    It's impressive how much good melody can be packed in only one song, it kinda reminds me of Corelia. 1:56 to 2:16 is jawdropping!

  51. Alicsander

    I've been listening to this song for a long while now but still that high pitch vocal at 3:37 is freaking ridiculous.

    I'm so high 1:53

    ranknonewarrior

    🌳💨

  54. ferna2294

    Sounds great. I would down tune everything from the vocals to the guitar 3 tones, tho.

  55. Erwin van Oostenbrugge

    Always glad to see Djent guitarists not using axe FX haha

    Erwin van Oostenbrugge

    +Solaxer because it's becoming a bit boring to see everybody use the same gear...

  56. joey BOYER

    What amp head to get this sounds

    what set up is this

    Christopher McDaniel

    Head :Blackstar Series One 100w

    The cabinet looks like it's an Orange PPC412 4x12, but it's hard to tell

  57. Joey Thompson

    so this is what quantum physics sounds like

    XxPrimalxX

    lmaoooooo

  58. Drew Cooney

    This is the culmination of everything I've ever wanted to be my playing to be: tasteful, memorable chord shapes used in really interesting cadences with a focus on rhythm. And that tapping was fresh as hell

  59. Jim Morrell

    this almost reminds me of chon a bit..

  60. Alexander Färlind

    I didn't know Trevor Moore was such a talented musician.

  61. Nico Davis

    why does everyone hate on good singers. just because you can sing high notes like this guy, doesn't make them anywhere near boy band vocals. Personally I think his vocals are awesome.

  62. Simon Møller Jensen

    2.42 is so sick!

  63. Jimi Cas

    Tecnically fantastic, but i cannot understand the reason of all the new generation guitarist playing almost the same thing, i cannot see them souls...

  64. Postmodern Condition

    1:55 why?

  65. MetalPajamas

    Sam Jacobs, you look like Sam Winchester from Supernatural, anyone ever tell you that?

  66. Cool X

    Anybody know what pickups they use? Looks like BK from the outside

  67. Callum Plays Guitar

    I just wish I could get the timing of the notes right!

    Tossen

    +Callum Plays Guitar for me the timing isn't the hard part, it's playing it up to speed that is a fucking pain....

  68. alice margereta

    Play this in two different windows at the same time
    oh my god

  69. Claudio Russo

    sam you are an inspiration

  70. Kris Servilla

    Honestly I was unfollowing some ppl on instagram the same time he goes I'm not followiiiiiiahhhileeang! It was hilarious due to the odds.

  71. Jaymzmiller

    I wish I could split in two halfway through playing songs. Mitosis is so impressive.

    Erik Wurster

    +Jaymzmiller Mmmmm ohh yea, split those maternal zygotes into sexy-ass identical daughter cells. The way their chromosomes match make me wet. Yay mitosis!

  72. Kawaii Imouto

    Fucking lord that breakdown... unnf

  73. Janeen Clark

    this song is next evolution of music

  74. xIIIyx

    i would beat him steal his hands and then beat him with his stolen hands. envy as fck

  75. beto mkohjnu

    El vocalista, con todo respeto, esta de mas, deberían ser solo instrumentales!

  76. Branson Quinones

    Just..yes.

  77. William Dirkin Music

    Okay so this track is the absolute business apart from the but at around 2:00 . I know this is progresive metal but for the love of God please don't enter the same realm as Design the Skyline please.

  78. Yojimbo711

    Awesome riffing, though the vocals make it harder for me to comprehend the music behind this. They could have been fewer throughout the song so there would be more space for the music.

  79. tiasunep aier

    The intro was Chon on distortion haha

    kookookumar

    @tiasunep aier that minor 9th chord shape is everywhereee

    TB Antilife

    That was actually a great reference

  80. Stefano Degasperi

    nice! strings gauge? tuning?

    kookookumar

    @Stefano Degasperi A E A D G B E learning this right now :) really fun song

  81. :ai:

  83. Λdri bw

    Great I like it

  84. Some Nobody

    What tuning do you play in?

  85. Alessandro Degregorio

    Finally i'm listening to some music again. This is a masterpiece. Fucking love it

  86. Gianluca Ivaldi

    Sounds like the Safety Fire and Periphery had a baby. Good stuff though!

  87. Jenson Blanchard

    Tuning?!?!?!

  88. Nando Alves

    Great song, Sam Jacobs great player.

  89. mrnothing

    excellent tone

  90. Seth

    Sounds like every other band out there.
