about

Exploding Head Syndrome Oslo, Norway

Exploding Head Syndrome was hailed as "one of the most exciting new Norwegian bands" by NRK Pyro. Their first EP release was well received among the press and the public. They later went on to tour Norway and shared stage with bands like Sham 69, Satyricon and Blood Command.

In October 2013 the band finally released their debut album, Disciples of Reason, and yet again the critics were impressed.

Track Name: Wasting Away
Wasting away
Wasting away while you believe the lies
The lies that tell you you’re no good
That you have failed
The mind is strong but that works in oh so many ways
You could live the life that you deserve, if you just take it

Wasting away
Wasting away while you believe the lies
Wasting away

Crawling in shame
You crawl in shame as you believe the lies
The lies that say that you are better,
Better than them
Believe the hype
Believe the hype as you waste away
Potential is not alone enough not by a long shot

Wasting away
Wasting away while you believe the lies
Wasting away
Crawling in shame
You crawl in shame as you believe the lies
Wasting away
Track Name: World Crashes Down
Tricked into thinking things were good
After so many years you never should
You won’t adapt you’ll never learn
Time after time world falls apart
What will it take to fix this life
Maybe it’s time to get though
Maybe it’s time to get smart

Free from this weight that pulls me down
Free from the thorns around my crown

World crashes down world built back up
A lesson learned but then forgot

So much for thinking things were good
I held your back I thought you would
You won’t adapt you’ll never learn
The nighttime slowly turns to day
All those bad feelings went away
But hate follows love as night follows day

World crashes down world built back up
A lesson learned but then forgot

World crashes down
You taught me lessons I learned my lessons
Forgot my lessons
I build me up you break me down
I build back up
Track Name: Walk Alone
You failed to listen to the warning signals
We forced into your head
You lived your life like there was no tomorrow
But tomorrow’s already dead
Where will you turn when you’ve burnt
All the bridges and the water it rises fast
Too proud to give let’s hope you’re not too proud to last

You chose your path now you must walk
And you walk alone
Survival’s now your only fight
And you fight alone
You don’t deserve to make it through
And you’ll die alone

Your failure to listen left you broken and bleeding
No position to call your own
Why should we help when you spent all your time
Making sure you were left alone

The future doesn’t look so bright no more for you
You never did learn how to fight why would you do
Track Name: The Fine Line Between Hardcore and Hipster
Well if you ever catch me looking like that
Turn me around and put a bullet in my fuckin’ neck
The times they change but the scenes never do
A world of copies’ what you brought me in to
The pride in being different man it’s all a fraud
The first to stand out I’ll so proudly applaud
You live your life like a fashion show
Let’s be the first one to quit and the first to say no

No way to fuckin’ know for sure
If you lack originality or just don’t care no more
You look the same you’re not fooling no one
So scared to be different can’t be much fun
The clothes may change but the rules are the same
Reinvention is a young man’s game
You all became one someway and somehow
I never did what you did and I’m not gonna start now

Well if I ever saw you looking like that
I’d turn around and you would never see me fuckin’ back
The times they change I wish you never would
Just because you can doesn’t mean you should
The pride in being different man it’s lost and gone
There are more important thing than to always belong
Let’s end the search for the perfect hit
Let’s be the first one to quit
Track Name: Of Sanity and Dignity
Your situation has been lived a million times
Nothing original
Generalization of the masses you uphold will leave us nowhere
Hatred is a sad excuse for fear and you’re the instigator
The brave would shut their mouth and act
Not deal in useless coward propaganda

I’m gonna fight you
I do despise you
I’m gonna fight you ‘til the sanity’s restored
I will destroy you
You paranoid you
I will destroy you so our dignity’s restored

How do they sleep the ones who brought this on
Guilty by association
They let a planet down and now we pay the highest price
Abandoned the needy and betrayed the core
The vultures came to pick the pieces
It’s only nature

You took the chance
You lost it all
You brought us with
The final fall
Vultures are feeding they’re feeding on all
Track Name: Happy
When what you have is not enough
What will it take to get back up
Everyone gets left alone some time
But you just felt more in your mind
And everyone gets hurt now and again
What does it take to be a friend

What did you need from me then?
What do you want from me now?

Heads are fuckin’ funny to me
They make you nervous and they make you angry
Fuckin’ heads are fuckin’ funny to me
If you can’t be happy then be free
Track Name: Invincible
Crossing lines I never thought I’d cross
Fight for a life that you took for lost
Putting out fires with the spit from my mouth
Taming dragons is what life is about
Walk naked through the fires of hell
No fear of dying no attention to bells
Crash landing every once in awhile
I get back up I fuckin’ finish in style

I am invincible
And you’re fuckin’ dead

Crossing lines I never thought I’d cross
Fight for a life that you took for lost
Putting out fires with the spit from my mouth
Taming dragons is what life is about
Walk naked through the fires of hell
No fear of dying no attention to bells
I used to think you were better than me
but then I didn’t

My life has been a battle
My timing’s been a curse
My scars they might still show
But things could be much worse
Track Name: Fun and Regrets
You told your life story to anyone who cared
But it’s always been a crooked view that you have shared
You think the world revolves around you and your pack
The ones who disagree have stabbed you in the back

Your failings lie with you can't blame ‘em on bad luck
Your way of thinking is the reason that you’re stuck
Don’t invite the snakes in backyard expect them not to bite
This world has never been your fight

The sad part is you’ll take your story to the grave
I could have tried but it’s not you I want to save
Won’t be too late until you’re buried under ground
Then there’s no use in what you found

Regrets well and good
If you lived your life like you knew that you should
Stop your crying ‘til it’s done
It may not be perfect at least you’ll have fun
Track Name: Moving On
Stop talking start listening
Attempts are bound to fail
Negativity is catching everyone’s bored ready to bail
You toxic decisions much older than you think
No one’s gonna buy your hatred no one’s gonna sip out of your drink

You’re setting your own house on fire
You burn your village to the ground
Your legacy is now a footnote
And your friends are no longer around
Moving on to better things

You’re talking not listening
Attempts are bound to fail
Your views are obsolete and dated
Everyone is bored ready to bail
Your dated reflections
More harmful than you think
No one’s gonna buy your hatred
No one’s gonna sip out of your drink

Moving on to better things
Moving on
Move on
Track Name: End Game
What’s the use in trying when all goes wrong again
Why should you keep on fighting when it’s clearly all pretend
You gave it all but all was not enough
No shame in admitting that it was just too tough

You got it right
I got it wrong
We held on to the lie for far too long
The fight is rigged
The storm is strong
We hold on to the lies for far too fucking long

Spending all those days just fantasizing about the drop
No one will ever change your mind and no one will make it stop

You got it right
I got it wrong
I held on to the lie for far too long
The fight’s always rigged
The storm’s too strong
I’ll let go of this lie and I’ll soon be gone
