about

Hartsbane's debut EP. Here's what the critics think:

"Hartsbane is a new band in the metal arena…and they are one to watch. Their debut EP, As Summer Dies, shows the band is energetic, heavy and yet, contains a certain “radio-friendliness” that permeates their sound. "
- A Look Into Music

"Gets the hair standing up on the body. It’s fantastic."
- GBHBL

"The acoustics piece – Tomorrows Rain – totally took me by surprise. Not because it is really outstanding, but it confirms that penchant towards variety. And that – last, but not least – Hartsbane really is nobody’s bitch, and will go down its own path. And so it should, indeed."
- Rock Music Radar

"it takes something of a hard rock edge into the sound and has a big clean vocal sound from Kerzhner, who could easily turn his voice to any cover the band should choose without being over shadowed by the original vocalist."
- Metal Noise

The songs are specters. They have history. Some are decades old, haunting my memory longer than I can remember, others are far more recent, the epigraph of a chapter that’s been far too long in the making. They span many people, life changes, stories and events. Around these songs, friendships were built and lost, lovers were celebrated and mourned. They have been my soundscape long enough and now it is their time to be heard and experienced by others.

I’d like to thank everyone whose hands have touched this music and my heart over the years. Aviram Zeevy, Amit Fortus and Alon Shulman for giving me a chance to bring these songs to the stage. Adam Ma’or, Leo Pisaq, Roman Mishko, Elram Boxer, Matan Shmuely, Idan Amsalem, Nir Shaked, Erez Naveh, Nir Bar Av and Johnny Ace, Hera Ida, Sagi Appel, Oron and Hagit, Yossi Sassi, Shevet and Ofer Dvir, thank you for your part in this.

Thank you Noa, for sparking this flame a new. Without you this might never have happened.

Lastly, thank you. For reading this, for experiencing. See you on the road.

Track Name: Tame
TAME

Another day, another scar
You made my dreams appear so far
And good intentions set aside
You restrained me

You say no one can beat the odds
And to obscurity you fade
You're always trying to persuade I am you

Don't tell me we're the same
Don't tell me that you feel my pain
Don't tell me things will change
Don't tell me that it's age
That's making me behave this way
Don't tame me

Another town another night
I sometimes wonder if you're right
When the vanity of the stage and lights
Begins to blind

You say you know what it's about
And yet your words are filled with doubt
I barely fight to urge to shout, within me

Don't tell me we're the same...

Day to day and side to side
I choose to live how I decide
To swim against the tide
Or claim the life I am denied
We're not the same I won't be tamed

Don't tell me we're the same...
Track Name: Nobody Knows
NOBODY KNOWS

I see what I see
Only me
and you will never know

I take the highs with the lows
And it shows
You’re never alone

And though you try
You just can’t bring it to a close
You make yourself justify it
And nobody knows

I do what I say
Only me and you will never know
It's not as simple as they make it, no
When you have to face it alone

And though you try
To take a stand or set the tone

You make yourself justify it
Don't try to deny it
Because nobody knows
But I do

I find it so overwhelming
Can't give up pretending
And nobody knows
But I do
Track Name: Substitute
SUBSTITUTE

I’m looking for a substitute, a substitute for love
It’s failed me far too many times
I’m looking for a substitute, to get you off my mind
These days they’re not so hard to find

Because I want more, more than a dead emotion
That satisfies everyone else
I’m looking for a chemical solution
So I can stop all this pretense

I’m looking for a substitute a substitute for truth
Tomorrow I’ll be first in line
To try it

I’m looking for synthetic hope in my pragmatic future
Maybe the substitute could fake you
Replace you erase you

So why want more, more than the dead emotion
That satisfies everyone else
An amnesty in a chemical solution
To end regret, help me forget
a substitute for love is all I have

A substitute, a substitute for love
Track Name: As Summer Dies
AS SUMMER DIES

It’s always been too late the racing clocks of escaping fate
they were never on my side I’m finally leaving them behind

I’m looking at the map wondering where I’ll be
when the clock strikes twelve in twenty twenty three
hoping maybe it’s foretold that I will make it through the cold

Is it too late for me, to look the storm in the eye
to face the consequence and live before I die

Let this moment be my exodus,
as winter comes for all of us
Remember love and bless the fall as summer dies

I pray no god but I do ask myself,
how far I’ve gone to make amends
Remember love and bless the fall as summer dies

It’s always been my fault,
the proving grounds of my youths revolt
are soaked in blood and bitter tears,
the precious fruit of wasted years
But there’s a clarity that all this baggage brings
And when it’s said and done I wouldn’t change a thing
I throw my questions to the wind I’m finally ready to begin

Is it too late for me to look the storm in the eye
to face the consequence and live before I die

Let this moment be my exodus,
as winter comes for all of us
Remember love and bless the fall as summer dies

I pray no god but I do ask myself,
how far I’ve gone to make amends
Remember love and bless the fall as summer dies
Track Name: Tomorrow's Rain
TOMORROW’S RAIN

Your dark hair
The mistakes our memories share
I never had a doubt
I turn around to you

To face your stare
Snow around us, cold and bare
But there’s something in the air
Between us

Tomorrow’s rain
Release the pain within
Tomorrow’s rain is ready to begin
Tomorrow’s rain will guide my way again
Though it breaks the heart in two
I go there
I go there without you

The words we share
Like a spell of old
But the dreams I hold
Won't pass you for another

All that remains, all that remains
An empty silent glance
A solemn kiss and one last dance

Tomorrow’s rain
Release the pain within
Tomorrow’s rain is ready to begin
Tomorrow’s rain will guide my way again
Though it breaks the heart in two
I go there
I go there without you
