about

Merithius Boston, Massachusetts

The Boston-based Fantasy Metal group, giving "Prog" a new color. Our music tells the story of Merithius and its peoples.

Our music is heavy at times and ambient at others; with Trombone, Keyboards and mad vocal harmonies, be sure to expect variety and complexity in our music made through strange conflicts and unlikely resolutions in the story

However, always be ready to throw down!

Track Name: Prologue
As the mutliverses began to form amongst the astral mush and life began to grow, into one space was born 7 primordial beings; powerful but lost.

They found each other and through that they discovered their gifted natures and built their identities.

--

Arakith, the most powerful and influential of the seven, was appointed the king of these "godlike" beings. Through his veins coursed the magic capable of creating planes of existence and filling them with life.

Like an arcane artist he built Ascenthius; the home of the gods, imaged after a dream; thus bestowing the title of the "Dreamweaver" upon him.
Track Name: Inception
Inception - Merithius

(spoken)
"On the second day of the first age of Ascenthius a great cry could be heard from within the home of the gods.

On that day, the King of the Gods, and their most loyal friend and ally pondered on the fate of the Planewalker…"

What should i do?
Should I risk it?
Will it end his suffering?

A world, evolving endlessly.
Built throughout the magic of my dream.
An adventure, revolving endlessly.
Built to cure the darkness of his dreams.

How big should it be?
What shape should i mould it?
What colors will i choose and where will they go?
Which side of our world will it look best from?

What will the forests smell like?
What will the mountains feel like?
What will the oceans sound like?
What will the stars shine like?
What should I call it?
What should I call it?

Merithius.
Track Name: Invocation
Watch me hold the light,
Watch me weave your dream,
Right before your eyes.
A gift from me.

--

Stone on top of stone.
Paradise begins to form.
Look through wispy veil.
Follow the lark horizon.

--

Planar peaks, begin to climb.
Watch the arcane artist glide.
Breathe the air and paint the sky.
Shape the hills and the mountains high.

Horizons,
Gently birth a light.
That fills the air.
(A breath inside of me.)

Weaving magic,
From my veins.
To forge this fragile
Entity alive.

--

Stone on top of stone,
Merithius takes form.
take this gift and watch it grow,
from the core.

--

Stone on top of stone.
Paradise begins to form.
Look through wispy veil.
Follow the lark horizon.

--

Walk this plane and
bring it life and
give it hope to
occupy this

little dream in-
side of me. i
pray that you
accept this gift of
mine.

Let the magic fly!

A gift from me

A gift from me
Track Name: Welcome To Merithius
Welcome my friend
to Merithius
enter the world
exit your sleep
wander through time
and dream for me.

--

Welcome my friend
to Merithius
exit your sleep
enter your world
implore your might
explore your mind
this is your time.

Your time is now.
Track Name: Parallax To The Populous
Here I am
What is this I see
This world in which I stand
This is no penitentiary

Here I am
Spared by the darkness in my dreams
I will do what I can
From the shadow, keep you clean

Here I am
Falling from the sky
Leaving Ascenthius behind
Here on Merithius

Here I am…

Do I dream or am i awake
Who are they and why do they quake
and shiver and fear me so

I want to be your reason
To continue blissfully

I want to be your reason
To continue peacefully

Here I am
Falling from the sky
Leaving Ascenthius behind
Here on Merithius

--

Here I am
Falling from the sky
Leaving Ascenthius behind
Here on Merithius
Here I am
Falling from the sky
Leaving Ascenthius behind
Here on Merithius
Track Name: Parallax From The Populous
Parallax from - Merithius
----

Here he is...

What is that thing
Coming down from the sky
What does this mean
What to say or where to hide

world wide hysteria
grips our cities and our people
are you our messiah
Or the phantom of the steeple

Who do you think you are?

--

Regress
back into the safety
Of our homes

Regress
Back into the darkness
Of our fears

Regress
Right back to the start
Where we came from

Regress
Right back to the truth
of our fear

--

Are you the proof
Of the gods in the sky?
Should we worship you
Or are you a lie?

Are you the proof
Of the gods in the sky?
Should we worship you
Or are you a lie?

Track Name: All New Era
I can hear a voice
Coming from the depths
Past the ethereal veil
Begging for deliverance

I can hear the roar
Thousands upon thousands of
Failing lights
Dimming lives

Get ready for this story
Open up your mind to me
A new book full of legends
Turn to the next page child

--

This is the end of the tale
Let's move on to the next
This is the start of a world
Where I was welcomed a guest
But what is that voice?
What is that voice
Howling deep through the
Ethereal winds?
