about

Coming back from a 2-year hiatus, Slyde is returning with a brand new 4-track titled "Back Again". Slyde's European metal, Japanese video game music, and Western grunge rock influences remain intact, delivering energetic melodic, high-energy compositions with a pop sensibility. A concept EP, ‘Back Again’ continues to explore the links between environmentalism and the wider world, with a sci-fi twist.

Track Name: Fading
Fading
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva, B. Soares

Hiding in disguise
Far away and in plain sight
Watching over time
Learning how they live their lives
Afraid to make a sign
Not understanding why they fight
Hoping that one day
They will change their ways

Only time can help the minds
Of the ones who see the damage that they've done
Until it comes
The plague lives on

Observing them for centuries
First contact, not meant to be

Taken by surprise
Death, destruction and decay
A violent viral maze
Leaving only them to blame
An egocentric race
Believing none will take their place
Hoping that one day
They will change their ways

Only time can help the minds
Of the ones who see the damage has been done
Until it comes
The plague lives on
On and on until the damage has been done
The plague lives on

Without reason their whole world is fading
We are fading, fading
Complication of this world, evading
We are fading, fading
Track Name: Join The Parade
Join The Parade
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva, B. Soares, S. Westbrook

Feel the blast of light around you
The sounds and rhymes you've heard before
The repetition of the masses
Think like you've never thought before

Say that you'll never leave me
Say that you are my friend
All this time you said I'm sorry
Has lead us to the bloody end

You slowly lose the air around you
A deadliness you can't evade
Crawling up your back, you feel it
About to take your life away

Come on and join the parade
Or you'll be labelled a fake
Come on and join the parade
Come on and leave us astray from what you know is right

All this time you said I never tried
When, in fact, you were the one that lied
Track Name: Divide
Divide
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva

You hear the noise, fear the voice, inside
That says "we want no more"
They take a name, make 'em say, "they're all the same,
We want no more"

Compelled and consuming
Don't know the right thing
Diseased and we're bleeding

They say goodbye
If that's the way, we will divide
They say it can't be right
If that's the way, we will divide
They say we must fight
If that's the way, we will divide
They say we can't unite
If that's the way, we will divide

You take the bait: stupid face,
The gun's in place to go off once more
You hear the name, scream with hate, "they're all the same,
We want no more", as we divide

Tell me to sever the ties
Tell me this isn't a lie
Tell me to follow behind
Separate me, segregate me
Track Name: Back Again
Back Again
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva, E. Disero

From up here
Sheets of glass reveal the rocky bed we crawl from
Nothing near, but darkness
Holds it all together, and we wanna stay forever

We won't be coming back again
We're too far away

From up here
We lay our heads in pillows in the sky, transcending comforts in our lies
Nothing to fear, this beauty
Holds it all together, yeah we wanna stay forever

We won't be coming back again
We're too far away

From up here
This pale blue mass reveals the fragile rock we come from
Nothing here, this gravity
Holds it all together, yeah we wanna stay forever

We won't be coming back again
We're too far away
