Dimtone

BIOGRAPHY

Dimtone is an alternative rock/metal trio from Vihanti, which takes influences from various genres. The guys have been playing together with this line-up since the beginning of 2011, although they have played together in previous projects for several years. Dimtone recorded its first untitled demo at SoundKitchen-studio in April 2011. The first demo received really good feedback, and Dimtone spent the following summer composing new material and rehearsing. They recorded a new demo called Redrawing Skylines in October 2011, which also received a very positive feedback from the listeners and critics. The demo has since been sold out. After a busy beginning of 2012 Dimtone took also part in Nuclear Nightclub's Nuclear Explosion band contest, where they got to the semifinals and received great feedback from the judges. The band composed new material during the spring and summer, and at the end of July Dimtone recorded it's third demo called Owl Eyes. Future plans for Dimtone include a lot of gigging, getting new listeners and making new material.

  • Henri Arvola Bass & Vocals
  • Miika Arvola Guitar
  • Marko Ahola Drums

1. Undertow

(written by Henri Arvola, arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

Leave from the track now
Ignore the outcome this time around
Make it frequent
Don't miss from this range
A voice of disarray

Strained the wire
When the mood was stale

Along the undertow
Wait for the sun to dip
There are still days to come

2. Owl Eyes (Pt. I & II)

(written & arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

Keep recalling
This delusion
I was somewhere else
Why did you take me there?
It's too cold to bear

Staring at the hollow eyes
No the owls are not what they seem
What role do I play in here?
Will I find remembrance
A test subject for greater good

An altered state of awareness
You're right next to me
But I'm not
Your hands so cold
Too cold to bear

3. Dim

(written by Henri Arvola, arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

Wake me up
When the time comes
To go back from this nothingness

Reset
And take a look behind

With a stroke you
Cast a shadow on me
Seize the colours off
And paint me so dim

Turned my back away
I couldn't face the fact
That I've lost a part of me
And I cannot get it back

Wake me up when it's the time to
take a look behind

1. Skylines

(written by Henri Arvola, arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

We are tangled
On yesterday
To find a purpose
Seeking a way

A crash course to let
the inspiration flow
Patterns from the smallest of things

Adrift
An outcast
Marching to the beat
Mesmerized

Choose to let
these limitations go
Like reflections
Burning my eyes

Redraw the skylines
Rearranging the universe
You hold the pieces
To heal the sun
bring sound to silence
A moment away

2. Remnants for Tomorrow

(written by Henri Arvola, arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

Flutter of the branches
Knock at the window
Particles of dust
In the air

Slowly it differs
Slow enough to miss
the transcience of these days

So many leaves fallen
I've lost the count

If trees could talk
Would they tell me
How everything used to be
Now all of this is constant motion
To which we'll have to give in

Tried to push rewind
It's like this tape's stuck
Have to play along
Gathered what I could
With my bare hands
Remnants for tomorrow

So many leaves fallen
I've lost the count
Slips through my fingers
Hits the ground

When the day comes to end this playtime
Pay attention to what came around
Will I still keep this sight in my eyes

3. Revolt

(written by Miika Arvola, arranged by Dimtone, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

You're burning me
My skin is pale from scolding
Reciding fom the sun

The shade took a grasp
set fire to my veins
Refuse to feel
Regret

Repentance
Equal to us all
Push it all away
Your stance on this
Is all wrong

The way things progressed
Was it progress at all?
You keep coming back no more

We are burning straws
With no way to step out
Feed from your flaws
To revolt

1. Leap of Faith

(Written and arranged by Henri Arvola, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

A tired world taken on a verge
We're leaving
Forging into a somber house
After decay

Don't know if it's for better
pr for worse
To know we're running empty
like a song without a singer

A wrong turn in every way
there's a dead path left to run
A frail shoulder to lean on
Fingers overlap

If it's all there is for now
No cipher between the lines

Half of breathing floating on a raft
Keep rowing
Stowing all it up inside
The sea wide open

Keep an eye on the horizon
While the island waits beneath
Beneath our feet

Take a step
Move on
Take step
move on

2. Sunnight

(written & arranged by Henri Arvola, lyrics by Henri Arvola)

Bloodstains on the wall
I kept on counting days
It doesn't help at all
I just want to track my progress

Comatose on days
And have to stay the nights awake
World so silent
Am I the last of us all?

And as the curtain falls
Growing silence louder

Embracing solitude
Everything is cracked from the surface
Will the water come?
If so I'll face it with open eyelids

Roaming on and on
This dead dystopia
echoes rounding me
the shady corners with arms wide open

All that stays is the gloom
in the eyes of the fallen
I stove my eyes
to not see the glow that's calling

And then the curtain falls
Will I have what it takes this time?
