arturo jara WOW!!!
AMAZING!
You did it again. I think this ep is the best of the batch (dont get me wrong I love four winds and assymetrical also)
favorite track - The impossible dream

Now... as a kind of farewell
It is sad to know HOS will go to a halt. It is unfair that such a talented band and members have to put away their dreams and their music.
I wish we could have done more to keep the dream alive.
thanks for land of the damned, dans l'oeil de la tempete, mort en direct III, Noir, Blanc, for all. Favorite track: The Impossible Dream.

Christiane Fleurant Again a well crafted album, I can’t breathe starts with a celestial song. Then the electronic and hypnotic beat of misunderstanding is just « une tonne
de briques ».

A superb opus that end perfectly with understanding.

Hear you soon HOS Favorite track: I Can't Breathe.

MISUNDERSTANDING (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) The drugs are sinking in And have you speaking in tongues I lacks the discipline Of which you are paragon Can’t be made to comply No love can set me free I’ll never word your lies No matter what you try, You’ll never beat it out of me No words are cruel enough To force your journey on None that you are thinking of But then again, The night’s still young Tell me, am I Misunderstanding Could I be Misunderstanding You tell me The trial of my intentions The fire you were breathing in Left but wrath and scorn Branded on her skin You’re hanging from above The thorns I lies upon I can see it clear enough now But once again, My timing’s wrong
3.
LOVE LETTERS PERFUMED WITH ETHER (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) No warning Or blinding flare from the moon There were none But in writing Inked with fire Words are slave to your ways Like a drug They’re thriving They summon storms and hurricanes At least someone to cry your name They’re deafening Volatile The poetry never goes away Only dies a little each passing day Lines refining… Into a smile, that takes control Nobody else could ever know That you’re the one that wrote Those love letters perfumed with ether No guilt or lust weighs on your soul Your blood is hot, your heart’s so cold Yet I would love to earn Your love letters perfumed with ether In your eyes They’re like stains on a sheet But your heart Knows what is happening To them Go slowly heaven read with me Our lives rely on our chemistry Reacting…
4.
THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) Can’t assume that I am next in line As I’m staring at the rolling dice Cause if it wasn’t for the bad luck Then I wouldn’t have any luck at all None It’s spreading far and wide And hailed as the longest ride Still I may not know where I’m going But I know I’m going there on my own Alone You’re sentenced for life Tempting your fate Where you’ll be breading more lies Each one a line on your face If you follow your heart When you follow your heart Sweep me off my feet and bring me home No delusion can outmatch my own Know the dream is more abysmal Than any love ever fallen into Or through You’re sentenced for life Tempting your fate Where you’ll be breading more lies Each one a line on your face If you follow your heart When you follow your heart As you run to your death Tame your pride first Know that you can’t catch you breath And from there it only gets worse When you follow your heart If you ever follow your heart Could never make my daughter proud And could never joined the normal crowd Maybe I haven’t worked it hard enough Or maybe… I’m just not enough

UNDERSTANDING (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) The drugs are sinking in And have you speak in tongues I lack the discipline Of which you are a paragon Can't be made to comply No love will set her free I’ll never word this lie No matter what you try, You'll never beat it out of me No words are cruel enough To force your journey on None that you’re thinking of But then again, The night’s still young Tell me, Am I Misunderstanding Could I be Misunderstanding You tell me The trial of my intentions The fire you were breathing in Left but wrath and scorn Branded on her skin You’re hanging from above The thorns she lies upon I can see it clear enough now But once again, Her timing’s wrong

about

As 'Asymmetrical' and 'The Four Winds' before, this EP is mostly composed of material meant for 'Blanc', the alter ego and follow up album to 'Noir'. This third EP is the last one I expect to release, as going forward is financially impossible. I plan to make a printable PDF cover design for anyone wanting to make a personal and home made copy of "Blanc". Thank you all for having been there all these years. Gratitude.
