about

After a long time of craziness, laughter, tears, sorrow and of course lots of music, we proudly present to you our first musical effort. We are Normah, an all-female band and for about two years we had this idea of sharing our music with the world, that has finally come to life. We do not play gothic, pop – rock, glam or any of that kind of music that you expect girls would normally play. We listen to all kinds of music and this EP is a mixture of all that, or at least we tried to fit it in 5 brand new songs.
We were created in the fall of 2009 and we soon started composing our own music and the very first results were the songs “Normah” and “Wave Of Rage”. We played as many lives as possible and we have shared the stage with bands like Planet Of Zeus, Released Anger, Power Crue, Anal Veritas, 3Fold Pain and many more.
During the recording of this EP one of the guitarists Elia Tsara departed for her own reasons but was soon deservedly replaced by Sofia A.
Mixing and mastering were done “The Music House Studios” in Athens by Stathis Pavlantis and was produced by Kostas Tokas, who lends his scary ass clown pipes and offers his mighty guitar skills in the solo of “Clowns”. The artwork was made by Aggelos(Sunset Of Ra) and us-{Dead Silence's face|Copyrites|}.

Track Name: Iron Mother
IRON MOTHER
I don’t need you to believe in me
Cause I have made my own way
Slaying my dreams and raping me
But getting stronger every day
Bring me down To the ground
I’ll fall but I won’t bow To you
I am all I’m above you and beyond
Blessed or cursed from gods and demons
With blood that comes from spirits’ echoes
Closing mouths and crossing desert lands
Take a breath or …

Bring me down To the ground
I’ll fall but I won’t bow To you
I am all I’m above you and beyond
Iron mother pray for me
Iron mother set me free

And if all falls to pieces and if all falls apart
She’ll always be the one who builds up all these bridges
Stronger than all (but somehow fragile)
Willing to suffer (take it all in)
Breaking the wall (forget the sadness)
Cause she’s an iron mother
Track Name: Tormentor 33
TORMENTOR 33
Last night I had a vivid dream
Oceans were black and sky was red
Inside my mind the wrath
The story untold listen to me
Forget the good the dark night falls

The darkest night now falling down
The rage is strong your steps now count

When you’re down I’ll stand up tall
And I will catch you when you fall
Don’t underestimate me my anger waits silently

I know your thoughts and I believe
That you just want me on my knees, again

Don’t let your strength now turn into fear
Come closer now and spit your tear

I will touch you, you’ll feel guilt
You’re like a leaf, I’m like a beast
Don’t underestimate me my anger waits silently
Track Name: Spirit of the Night
SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT
You come to me each night
I see you with no light
Playing with my mind
It’s like eternal fight
Stay with me a while
Oh spirit of the night
Enlighten me with your lie
I’ m lost inside my mind

This time I’ll try to catch the spirit of the night

Immobilized and scared
I freeze at every stare
It’s like a curse I bear
The devil may now care
It’s coming closer now
I feel it here somehow
Kneel and take a bow
Break my sacred vow

This time I’ll try to catch the spirit of the night
It’s here so near and envying my fear

I’ m free you’ll see I killed the spirit of the night
Track Name: Redheadz
REDHEADS
What they have done where will they go
Grabbing the sun no faults no soul
More than you have more than you own
They fill the gun they steal your role

Red lips redheads fake rules bring best
Made from blood, bones, hints of their soul

As they will show you a sharp sword and a mask
They will be claiming there's no time enough

You have no choice to make them weak
Maybe your voice sounds to them weird
Don't let them feel any relief
Don't let them steal your own belief

The game is over when the truth has to meet
The rescuing shadows of a woman's dismiss

When hell will stay in front of you
You will not pray you will scream groove
Your only sin you always win
Your only burst to be the first
Forget the rest and make a wish
The peace has hell but hell isn't peace
Track Name: Clowns
CLOWNS
A doll in storm, my white mask kills
A paper boat some floating pills
The wheels of your bike
Still running it's flood
Your freckles my red eyes
A tunnel of blood
Say now hello to your friends, you can try
Go to that shell, yes, no ,yes, it's time you die
White tides are taking now the color of blood
Children are missing by their own attacks

You'll float down here it’s risk if you will not resist
There are some old defeats that made you scream for IT

I wear the costume of your fears
The water brings balloon of tears

Say now hello to your friends, you can try
Go to that shell, yes, no ,yes, it's time you die
White tides are taking now the color of blood
Children are missing by their own attacks
Please forgive me(I rape your soul)
Please forgive me(I watch you crawl)
