Day of Drear is my very first release under the "RHYB" pseudonym!

I have been working on this song on and off since early 2013. I finished writing the song in 2015 and worked with some friends to record, mix and master it throughout 2016.

Day of Drear is progressive rock of the classic variety. Think Camel, Jethro Tull, The Doors, Opeth, or Steven Wilson. It's a song about melancholic nostalgia.

Listen (on headphones or a decent stereo, preferably), enjoy it, take it in!

Track Name: Day of Drear
Every once in a while
I awake from a dream
With a space where my heart had been

As I climb out I find
Someone I once knew
Standing in my view

And for days ahead
A dark cloud hangs overhead

Every time my mind's eye replays
Rosemary's darker path
I feel his wrath

“If you take my child through the valley of darkness,
I will draw the roots around your eyes,
I will make you one with the maggots”

I'm sorry
I was so immature
Forgive me

Each time I would see her
I just loved her
Then I'd use her
I would roll her dice
Then one day
She took the darker path

Fade away,
Day of drear,
Bruise on my bones
When it aches,
Can’t forget
Out there somewhere
