about

Messgram is an emotional heaviness band from Seoul, Korea consisting of "sound-freak" lineup : Jahnny(FX), Sujin(Drums), Yusik(Guitar), Seth(Bass), and Jiyoung(Vocal). Messgram was formed in 2011 seeking high-quality Western-style music with the goal of "The Ultimate Sound." After a long period of preparation for better music, the band released their first EP 'This is a mess, but it's us' on April 2014. It has an unbelievable quality unexpected of Korean underground music scene suffering in a major slump.

Swedish melodic death metal band Arch Enemy's drummer, Daniel Erlandsson, was the first to see Messgram's potential. He suggested an audio mixing with him after listening to their demo music. He also mentioned Messgram through his social media saying that the mixing process was truly interesting and was a very exciting experience for him. The work with Daniel gave them a strong belief that their dreams can be true. The song 'Every Moment' placed in a second track of their first EP is the one that had been mixed by Daniel. However, the band was still unsatisfied with the song. They spent 40 hours on source recording of the song and recorded dozens of different versions from numerous studios, yet it was way below their ideal quality.

Under the goal 'The Ultimate Sound', Messgram decided to give up their entire previous studio-version recordings and start again from the very beginning. After endless attempts of recording, the band headed to USA with their self-made songs. For a week they worked with Atrium Audio, a studio that produced world-class bands' music such as August Burns Red and Texas in July. They spent two months in the states working hard to get the best result even though it was such a painful process since they seek for perfection.

Starting from the first song 'Blindfold,' each song has various colors representing different tastes and diverse age-groups of band members. Messgram's music have adapted to a wide variation of musical types such as early 90's emo, post-grunge, metal, trance-core, and the newest post-hardcore forging into a new genre that they have created with each member's endless painstaking effort toward their music. Each member has their own job for living but they say they are extremely happy with their music career. Devoting everything into their one goal, Messgram is expecting themselves to be the one and only Korean band ready to be the next world-leading rock band. Messgram's first step to their "dream come true" now begins.

Track Name: Blindfold
1.
Someone let me out of this cage,
Unleash me from these chains I'm in.

You always tear down the walls I build so easily, so easily, so easily!
You even meddle in my every breath in and out, in and out, in and out!

*
Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays again!

Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays again!

2.
There's no way out(there's no way out)
No mercy from god.

There's no way out(there's no way out)
No mercy from god.

You always tear down the walls I build so easily, so easily, so easily!
You even meddle in my every breath in and out, in and out, in and out!

*
Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays again!

Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays a-gain!

*
Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays again!

Just take my blindfold and throw it away
to let my eyes feel the sunrays a-gain!

**
There's no way out.
No mercy from god.
So hold me tight
to let my eyes feel the sunrays again!
Track Name: Every Moment
1.
You lost the chances in your life as you chased the wind.
And wasted your precious time filling your mind with the void.
A weak man will see the faceless fear inside him.
And finally you fall down.

*
Every moment,
every minute,
every time you wander in the nightmare.

Every moment,
confess "Oh god"
It's no use denying your spirit burns in hell.

2.
You messed up paradise the place you've never seen.
So I whisper the magic spell to drain your blood and soul.
All this suffering, reflected in the mirror.
It's time to cut the life-string.

*
Every moment,
every minute,
every time you wander in the nightmare.

Every moment,
confess "Oh god-" It's no use ignoring the pain surrounding,
the pain surrounding you.

*
Every moment,
every minute,
every time you wander in the nightmare.

Every moment,
confess "Oh god-"
It's no use denying what you did.

Every moment,
confess "Oh god-"
It's no use denying your spirit burns in hell.
Track Name: My Funeral
1.
Was it too short for all of us
to bring our broken dreams to life?
Was it too long for all of us
to stay away from our life?

Naked we came into this world,
with nothing we fall back to dust.
Lay down the burden on your shoulder
and help me fly my ashes away in the air.

*
Don't you cry for me.
I'm doing pretty well here.
I'll be right by your side,
as a part of you.

2.
Even though the echoes gradually died away
There's a voice saying "It's not over yet."
Right here, in my heart!

My dear, you don't need to be sad
for many things we've been through so far.

But If I flow like the flowing river,
I will be, a little bit closer to you.

*
Don't you cry for me.
I'm doing pretty well here.
I'll be right by your side,
as a part of you.

Don't you cry for me.
I'm doing pretty well here.
I'll be right by your side,
as a part of you.

Everything that made me laugh and smile.
It made me and i will be part of it, be part of you.

Everything that made me sad and cry.
It made me and i will be part of it, be part of you.

So you need to be happy to live on
So you need to be...

You proved that I'm alive.
You proved that I'm alive.
You proved that I'm alive.
You proved that I'm alive.

Don't know where we're from,
Don't know where we'll go.
That's our life we lead. (like a blowing wind)

*
Don't you cry for me.
That's our life we lead.
I'll be right by your side,
as a part of you.

Don't you cry for me.
That's our life we lead.
I'll be right by your side,
as a part of you.

(as a part of you)
(as a part of you)
(as a part of you)...
Track Name: Choking My Neck
1.
You always crave for all things
and stick to what you can't have

Fold your hands not to let lose yours
Hold it tight to make me breath

*
My hands are choking me
So I can set me free
It won't make things better, won't make you better

2.
(Desires) to satisfy me
(Insatiety) like broken jars

(Fold your hands) to hold me forever
(Fold my hands) to choke my neck

*
My hands are choking me (My hands are choking me)
So I can set me free (So I can set me free)
It won't make things better, won't make you better

**
Take your hands off of it (Take your hands off of it)
Please let them go away (Please let them go away)
It won't make things better, won't make you better

++++++
The stars may fall, the eyes may blind my sight
The known may cage my will
The memories will hold us behind as prisoners
The past will make you as a past
The road will lead me to the end of nothing
We're walking on a pathless road to nowhere
Now we're seeing as an observer
Now we're seeking freedom

***
My hands are choking me
So I can set me free
Take your hands off of it
Please let them go away
Track Name: Kitsch
1.
Thrown in the pit, knelt down on the ground.
Eyes full of tears, prayers in the shadows.
Thorn in the flesh, your sardonic laughter.
Now I can see the end of my days gone by.

Is there anyone who can stop this agony?
(This pain inside)
Is there anyone who can tell me I'm still alive?

*
It's not what I expected.
Futile trials to find the grail.
Empty space resounds the breakdown between us.
Oh-

2.
Spit on my face, heart falls into pieces.
Dark memories, emerge from the flashback
(Sick of it all, I'm sick of it all !)
Scars on my skin, this endless migraine.
I try not to sigh, just smile in the silence
(Alas, woe is me, it's the last breath I take.)

Is there anyone who can stop this tragedy?
(This pain inside)
Is there anyone who can tell me I'm still alive?

*
It's not what I expected.
Futile trials to find the grail.
Empty space resounds the breakdown between us.
Ah-

Distress from misguidance was blessing in disguise.
The sun burns me down.

(Please, help me up.)
(Please, heal my wound.)
(Please, help me up.)
(Please, heal my wound.)

*
It's not what I expected.
Futile trials to find the grail.
Empty space resounds the breakdown between us. between us!

It's a fake. It's trash.
Another echo of disgrace.
I won't hide myself, won't lie anymore.
Oh-
