about

Axioma Rome, Italy

Founded in 2012 by Gabriel and Jacopo. The two begin to look for musicians, founding Jamil that took place behind the drums. With this line-up with Gabriel on vocals, the band released a first demo with 3 tracks, under the monicker of Asylum.
In 2014 Andrea and Riccardo entered the band completing the line-up. The band changed name to Axioma, and recorded Monolith, the first EP.

Track Name: Hierophant
Cold gaze to perceive
a course without a form,
mighty storm in silence
and chaos sets the norm
A final presence
leaves a muted trace
beyond this chain of events,
sight of disgrace

Seraphic bliss of time,
a never ending curse
Ignorance swallows the cries,
malicious lack of force
Hidden shadows of indifference
reflect through flesh
Devote to a disharmonic dance,
conscious of death

Mainframe of a vicious hate
remorse of men
Borrow another faith
to dream again

Absence of senses
joins dimensions to delight,
dimensions unrevealed
No heartbeat, not this time
Track Name: Monolith of Fire
Drifting as a weak
futile as you speak
naked and defenseless
You're conscious but asleep
chained to a dream of life
spawn for soul, core of dissolution

I'll take your hand,
You'll follow
Through endless days of null and silence
I'll overcome your truth,
Conceal all lies to you
Reborn through fire

There's no way to go
at least you've always known
random was an option
An overwhelming force
suggests a place to drown
a cosmic sea of failure and devotion

I'll take your hand,
You'll follow
Through endless days of null and silence
I'll overcome your truth,
Conceal all lies to you
Reborn through fire

(Embrace me as I fall)
You're not
guided by pure wisdom

(Awaken I behold)
You're not
a victim wretched in madness

Now I float
Over words and laughters,
through guilty doubts and shame

Shall I proceed?
There's nothing but your soul
Drive us no further

I will blind you
with the raving glare of light
I will hush you
as you utter words,
your mouth will be sewn shut

I'll consume with fire
all is mine and all things are not
You will shout in madness
as my flame will burn out your throat

The ecstasy of greed
The joy of a fractured sun
Monolith of fire
rises up as the earth explodes

Fire
Track Name: Rinnegato
Che cosa hai rinnegato, folle
A cosa hai rinunciato, ipocrita e perverso
...e ti ho perso nel vuoto
...e ti ho visto corroso

Ti ho visto soffocare, docile e vizioso,
intento ad inventar parole
...e ti ho perso nel vuoto di fede
...e ti ho visto corroso dal tempo

Se non fossi costretto a scegliere
saresti disilluso e perso,
sottomesso in lacrime e silenzio

Ti ho visto contemplare, docile e vizioso,
intento a disegnare spazi
...e ti ho perso nel vuoto di fede
...e ti ho visto corroso dal tempo

Che cosa hai rinnegato, folle
A cosa hai rinunciato, ipocrita e perverso
...ed ho ascoltato l'ignoto
...ed ho visto il tuo volto scavato
Track Name: Deception
There was something, a sort of presence,
an hopeless conviction, an ancient lie
a drowning wish, lashed in silence
endeavouring to find a choice to us

Oh, I tried to find
the walls inside, the walls inside my head
Oh, my heart, my hands, my eyes,
my voice, deception

I lie here, shattered
A despair foreseen
Anonymous, atrocious you are to me
and I will do it all again

Oh, I tried to find
the walls inside, the walls inside my head
Oh, my heart, my hands, my eyes,
my voice, deception

Devoted souls, creatures of dust
we're nothing else but slaves in line
Praising a presence, an essence beyond space and time
devotion to something hard to define
At least deprived from this mere deception,
eclipsed from trust, blind and dimensional
now I see, that's pure immolation
we're vicious beasts, we're demons,
we're just liars...
Track Name: Veil of Paroketh
Strayed from balance and reason,
men now emerge from flesh
Assume pure wisdom as guidance:
it does not exist
Philosophy is madness
when disattached from life
A race wich enjoy disobedience
learns agony

Caught in endless falling

Those empty eyes,
mirrors of the void
Admire, deceive the signs
beauty is weak
Failure and balance:
litany of indolence
The blood shed now withered and worthless
Come back to life

"When I came unto men, then found I them resting on an old infatuation:
all of them thought they had long known what was good and bad for men."

Run away from me
Have you found your truth?

Devotion has no sense,
a barren field
My life is illusion
I'll pierce my veil

Million existences revealed and merged in a fractal one
that will orbit unconscious in endless motion
Caught in endless falling
Track Name: Reminiscence
Reminiscence Pt.1: IMPULSE

When the unconscious mind
finds its dual source
balance adheres to its desire
but remains unreal
(there is an eye...)
a morbid seal,
a fractal structure,
an abysmal silence

Behold,
this mass is pushing through
the vile delusion
and observes its presence sealed

An amorphous doubt
orbits 'round the heart,
shaped within its framework
a ruthless deal
(there is an eye...)
a radiant truth,
a conscious impulse,
a prismal silence

Behold,
this voice is pleasing you
A blind devotion
is lying and creeping through thee

There is an eye
of coherence and lies,
an ultimate presence
that swallows the stars
and beholds


Reminiscence Pt.2: PATIENCE
(Instrumental)


Reminiscence Pt.3: OVERLOAD

A different question
rests in your eyes
and now awaits in patience
This pale remembrance of silence
is overblown

Summoned in splendour
balance exists
but won't adhere to life
we're chained to a golden existence
Asylum

The sign of time marked in our minds,
oblivious
Truth is pure and radiant,
instinctual

Overload
