about

Soviet Space Dogs is the first demo released by the Amsterdam band Kitty Hawk. It features three rather different songs that showcase the diversity that Kitty Hawk stands for, while maintaining a firm punch in the gut throughout. Like the dogs sent into space to see if life would be possible high up in rockets, these songs are now sent into the world to see what will happen when people encounter the music of Kitty Hawk.

about

Kitty Hawk Amsterdam, Netherlands

Following a chance meeting with madman singer/screamer Niels T, guitar maestro Daan 'Salty' G. made it a personal quest to get a group of local Amsterdam misfits together to rock out with. Wiith the addition of mighty drummer Roel van D and bad ass bass player Jeroen S. Kitty Hawk was born and is now ready to burn stages with their explosive and energetic blend of stonercore and trashpop. ... more

Track Name: Syzygy
Syzygy

Wandering through a fog
Cloaked in an icy cold
A becoming, forever onwards
Reaching out to the depths

Confrontation = individuation

There goes the darkest of knights
Riding through, the cold black night
“Mahabharata! Mahabharata!
Mahabharata” -he cries out
A lunar wetness settles on his soul
Bitterness in wisdom -a saline solution
“Mahabharata! Mahabharata!
Mahabharata” -he cries out

A translucent vessel
Filled with water, thick
Diving into, forever downwards
Spiralling around the ego-self axis

Confrontation = individuation

He steps into the pool of Bethesda
As soon as he sees the waters move
“Mahabharata! Mahabharata!
Mahabharata” -he cries out
Nigredo blackness of a lunar eclipse
Albedo brightness is blinding his eyes
“Mahabharata! Mahabharata!
Mahabharata” -he cries out

A shadow figure turns around
His look sizing him up and down
A deep look into his eyes
“Mahabharata!” -he cries out
A collapse of the Real and Imagined
Necessary to keep on becoming
Forever onwards, towards the Self
“Mahabharata!” -he cries out
Track Name: Scheinwelt
Scheinwelt

Ich erinnere mich das Max Demian
Ein Loch in mir eröffnet hat
Eine Lücke in mein Herz gebrannt
Eine Klärung, eine Befreiung meiner Seele

Eine Scheinwelt hat sich offenbart in mir
Und seitdem bin ich immer auf der Flucht

Ich erinnere mich der Zeit des Sturm und Drangs
Eine leidenschaftliche Überzeugung das
Seelenverwandtschaft soll sehr Seltsames sein
Idee der Bashert - jeder Zufall sucht sein Schicksal

Eine Scheinwelt hat sich offenbart in mir
Und seitdem bin ich immer auf der Flucht
Immer fort von einem falschen vollendeten Selbst
Feigling oder Held? Wer ist wer, und wer bin ich?

Der Vogel kämpft sich aus den Ei. Das Ei ist die Welt
Der Vogel fliegt zu Gott. Der Gott heisst Abraxas

Der Mensch ist eine Brücke und nicht nur ein Zweck
Der Mensch ist ein Übergang aber gleichzeitig ein Untergang

Auch Gott hat seine Hölle
Auch Gott hat seine Hölle
Seine Liebe... Seine Liebe...
Ja, Seine Liebe zu den Menschen
Seine Liebe zu den Menschen"
Track Name: The History of Your Future
The History of Your Future

I am filling the blanks
Creating all of your dreams
I am writing your novel
You'll die like spit in a swallow

Three seconds of frenzied fear
Five moments of absolute joy
A handful of stinking grain
When will you sow the reasons of pain

Pieces of feces keep pushing out
Screaming with pain -you're dying so loud
Nothing you will do in life will ever turn out right

I am filling the blanks
Creating all of your dreams
I am writing your novel
You'll die like spit in a swallow

Three seconds of frenzied fear
Five moments of absolute joy
A handful of stinking grain
When will you sow the reasons of pain

Pieces of feces keep pushing out
Screaming with pain -you're dying so loud
Nothing you will do in life will ever turn out right

You smile...
You laugh
You run...
You obey

We'll live longer than you...

Pieces of feces keep pushing out
Screaming with pain -you're dying so loud
