about

"The Shipwreck” is the result of a long period of writing and composing sessions. It is a concept album that brings the listener, step by step, to a negative status of consciousness; a desperate, black and white vision which arrives to an apathetic acceptation of things as they are, as in the Sartre's theories of existential angst: accepting the indifference of the physical world to man's aspirations seeing that realization not only as a regret but also as an opportunity.
Passing by different chapters and different emotional landscapes, this difficult journey described by W&A is composed by 7 tracks. Recorded at Raptor Studio with producer Matteo "Ciube" Tabacco and Chris Dowhan from Planet Red Studios (Virginia, USA), who worked with bands such Giant, Spitfire, Night Like These and The Black Dahlia Murder.

about

Whales and Aurora Vicenza, Italy

Whales and Aurora’s project was born at the beginning of 2008 as a 5-piece band, with former members of LaPeste and the Simple Truth.
Psychedelic atmospheres of the early 70s, ethereal musical landscapes of the post-rock scene and warm powerful distortions give a polyhedral personality to the band.

Track Name: Refused Recounting Words
Deprived, endowed, holding my forces, keeping my strength.

Endowed, deprived, holding my forces, keeping my strength.

I need relief, I need to put myself into…

Starting again, erase what has been.
Starting at the end, don't need to look back.
Track Name: Achieving the Unavoidable
Scream through blind eyes. I cannot see the truth because reality is just my own point of view. My point of non return. Leave, leave these useless shapes.

Find life in distortion.

Sounds like my ears become blind.
When my eyes will see darkness as a visible noise and not as something you cannot define.

When my mind will read absence of light as a presence of darkness.
Distortion of my hopes. Manipulating wills.

Sounds like my ears become blind.
When my eyes will see darkness as a visible noise and not as something you cannot define.

When my mind will read absence of light as a presence of darkness.
Distortion of my hopes. Manipulating wills.
Track Name: Abandoned Among Echoes
I remember the day, won't you talk to me anymore?
Every fucking time, every time you breathe,
I feel alone through those blinks again
Only now I can feel this freezing darkness around
I left behind that all-filling euphoria long time ago

I don't care of anything, stay with me
I just wait to live with my misery
There's nothing to do but wait for a day to live
It will never happen. Rest with me!

Behold glory, it means nothing
Behind your eyes I recall the weight of tears

Could I re-start again? Rest with me
Could I embrace the end? Bare me

I left my laugh into pitch, trust me
It slowly choked me, God's screaming.

You're dying with me.
Track Name: A New Awareness
Facing the truth, lying to my eyes, finding answers in your tears,
salty truth running down.

Cruel cravings calling curses
false feelings feeding fire
soaking sorrows sinking sense
pushed positions piercing pain

I dive armless into the sound, so alone.

Cleaning my mind, emptiness is my half way to reach a new awareness.

A new awareness.
