The Beauty of Suffering

by Melankolia



This was the First track written and recorded for the upcoming album "III", from Melankolia. It was originally slated to be the opening track to the album, but as time went on, it became apparent that this track was more suited for the middle of the album. There is a source of internal suffering that most, if not all, suffer from. Music is how I deal with it. This is the first and only single that will be released from "III". I believe it captures the main feelings and struggles that drove the creation of this new album...
This is an unmastered demo! The album version will be slightly different...
