The Voices is a very particular project: it's some kind of Experimental A Cappella music that aims to create some atmospheres near to Avant-Garde or Metal with some Psychedelic and Classical influences.

Using many techniques and different pitches (from the low operatic basso to the high falsetto register; from the Blues/Jazz techniques to the oriental polyphonies, without forgetting some extreme moments) Paolo Ferrante (the brain and the throath of the project) creates a very ambitious and precious album, deeply atmospheric and dreamlike.

The Voices comment:
"This music is very Avant-Garde oriented, as I mix many styles and often I really don’t care about genres or styles; it’s Experimental because there’s nothing like this elsewhere (and if there’s please let me know!); it’s A Cappella because everything is made only with my voice and maybe it’s also Metal because of the growl and scream parts."

Track Name: (Lost) My Mind
I am trapped inside my mind
and I can understand nothing.
Everything is so strange
full of desires I never had.
Everything is a part of me
even those I don’t recognize;
there are plenty of contradictions,
I can see just madness.
Now I try to get free from my mind,
the result is that I’m free of mind.
I’m still trapped but at least I don’t mind.
There is nothing I can do for my mind
now I’m mad and at least I don’t mind.
Now I see things I didn’t see,
they just float over my head.
I’m sure I lost my reason:
I know less but I realize more.
With a spark of sanity I ask myself:
what does it mean to be insane?
Even if I’m mad
one thing I know:
there’s no one sane in this world
just look at them all
ruining their lives
chasing who is wrong.
Track Name: Impossible Dream
This is a strange dream
who defies reality,
a strange dream I am within.
Come with me!
Oh dream impossible dream
take away my wakeful sadness,
come here don’t leave me down
spread your wings and make me free again.
Come and dream with me
an impossible reality,
the brew of probability.
Drink with me!
Impossible dream, an impossible dream.
Oh my impossible dream
replace my normality,
the sad life I am within.
Relieve me!
A perpetual dream
to escape reality,
the killer of felicity.
Run with me!
Don’t wake me now,
don’t ruin my dream.
Don’t wake me now!
Track Name: Cosmoillogical Existence
In this moment of high confusion
I would rather be elsewhere,
I’m the center of my universe
and its stars are now colliding.
Many dreams now become reality
while reality becomes a dream;
now I have an astounding power
when my life explodes away.
I cannot understand the truth
in this universe of shiny lies,
I will not stop ‘til I see through
so I can see it with my own eyes.
In this cosmoillogical existence
I can find a place to live,
between explosions of insanity
burns the fire of my life.
I’m the void that fills the glass
when the last drops fall away
and I’m every possibility,
even those who cannot be.
Track Name: Distant, Unreachable
Scaling mountains of sorrow,
running after a dream
distant, unreachable and
far away, unattainable and
walking my field of thorns,
rending this old skin.
My sweet dream.
Will it realize?
Someone comes to me and takes my hand to guide me
out of this life to a beautiful reality.
Diving through the snow,
chasing the same dream that’s
distant, unreachable and
far away, unattainable and
I will never reach it and
I will never find peace.
Will it be now peace for me?
I am dying into the snow.
Track Name: Someone To Blame
I’m alone (you’re alone), no one to love.
I’m alone (you’re alone), in this world.
Will I ever find someone to…
I’m alone (you’re alone), no one to talk.
I’m alone (you’re alone), nobody cares.
Will we ever find someone to blame?
Who am I (are you) to understand?
You’re alone (how you dare?), I’m not surprised you ugly whale,
You’re alone (how you dare?), by back and front you are the same.
Don’t you understand we’re made to…
You’re alone (how you dare?), unworthy piece of smelly shit,
You’re alone (how you dare?), all you do is drink and eat.
Don’t you understand we’re made to blame each other
forever and ever,
until the end of times;
condemned to blame each other to the end.
Track Name: The Unicorn Nightmare
Black unicorns chasing me,
in the dark I cannot see.
Black unicorns with sharp teeth,
in the dark they can see me.
I must escape this damn forest
their red eyes are everywhere
and they want blood, my blood.
Red unicorns hunting me,
there’s no end to their greed.
Red unicorns with razor clogs
they trample on and mangle me.
I must escape their hungry fury
they won’t stop until I’m dead and
they’ll drink blood, my blood.
Will I escape the unicorn nightmare?
Will I survive the unicorn nightmare?
I know it’s just a dream this unicorn nightmare
but still I would rather avoid to die.
White unicorns are so sweet
so I kill them just for spite.
Now I burn horsy meat,
there’s no wonder they’re extinct.
Now I will take my revenge,
kill every last horse in this dream,
now I want blood, their blood.
This is how it ends the unicorn nightmare.
I was starting to enjoy the unicorn nightmare.
How many kills in this unicorn nightmare,
but now it’s time to wake up and go to work.
Track Name: Oneiric Anthem
I am here to tell a story that once happened in a dream
and the dream is
the mirror of reality, mirror of reality.
This is the oneiric anthem celebrating a dreamlike dimension
of everchanging freedom.
This is the oneiric anthem.
I will be forever safe while I’m living in this dream
as the dream is
my haven and sanctuary, haven and sanctuary.
Now dream in this shelter
that has been made
just for you;
now close your eyes, see
far away lands
become true.
Track Name: Lie
I’m alone in a place of utter darkness and I live again,
I’ve no name since in this plane of existence we don’t need any name.
I’m a voice that speaks only madness and I live again,
in your mind I found a place to reborn and I grow stronger everyday.
I’m alive, I’m a lie,
I’m alive and I’m a lie.
I’m the only candle in the darkness and I’m not alight,
if to see I’m bound to burn my life I prefer not to know.
That’s why I’m a lie:
I chose to be alive.
No matter if I’m false,
if truth does not exist.
I am here to tell my story
and you’re there listening.
I’m alone, the exception that proves the rule,
still I’m false, the extraordinary unexpected
that doesn’t change reality.
Track Name: The Bare Unbearable Bearings Of A Bear
It’s night and I can’t see where I go,
it’s dark this forest, a path that I don’t know;
full of black trees that grim and I’m scared,
something’s hiding and will jump on me.
I’m a tiny little fawn
and I jump through the forest,
I don’t care what lies inside
the shadow of that tall dark tree.
Still I’m a tiny little fawn
and I see something strange:
the shadow that I’ve seen before
is a huge mass of black hair and teeth.
The bare unbearable bearings of a bear.
But this time I know it’s not a nightmare,
‘cause in my nightmares I see unicorns
and here there’s no trace of that
motherfuckers ‘cause I killed them all.
I see a dead little fawn
and that means I am safe,
the bear won’t mind if I pass
because his hunger now is quenched.
So his death increased the duration of my life
and that means life feeds on death,
as well death feeds on life,
on an endless cycle of atomic interactions
in which we can’t truly discern nor separate
one being from another and we are all part
of a system that changes, evolves.
What can be a life compared to a galaxy?
What can be a breath compared to an explosion of a star
that lives through millennia?
Our time in this world is limited and you
lost four minutes listening to this shit.
Track Name: Behold The Passing Of Time
I’m the fire on the candle that burns the air,
the air you’re breathing in your little filthy cell.
I’m the sand in the hourglass and keep falling down;
I’m the sunset, the decline, of everything you’ll ever have.
Behold the passing of time.
I’m the water of the river that is flowing down,
forever different, still the same; I’m the measure of your life.
Forever passing
like water in a stream.
Forever dying
without a scream.
