Exclusive: DEMIR DEMIRKAN Brings Turkish Alt-Metal With “This I Swear”

The world of rock and metal has always been about rebellion and revolution. It’s a genre that defies expectations, that challenges authority, and, much like horror, consistently offers greatness while being eschewed by mainstream audiences.

Today, we’re bringing the Dread Central audience some alt-metal with a Turkish twist with the exclusive music video premiere of Demir Demirkan‘s “This I Swear”, which you can watch above. The song comes from his upcoming album Elysium in Ashes, out June 14.

Demirkan explains, “‘This I Swear’ is a song about a man who had been on an altruistic path, giving all he’s got to make things work with life and people. In the end he feels that he’s been doing that to satisfy his own ego. He realizes that he had made many mistakes while trying to do good and as the saying goes he realizes that “the road to hell is paved by good intentions”. And then he meets this woman and she is the only one who takes a chance to love him. And, he is forever grateful. He swears that he will be true to her forever and devoted himself to her.”

Elysium in Ashes comes out June 14. You can pre-order a copy via iTunes.

Lyrics:
I tried but it was so dark
It was just too dark to see
Inside the soul
Of this stranger I call me
All the while I just kept on
I never thought that I was wrong
I was set out to fix it all
One soul dared to fix me
You see what regret can do
How it breaks down a man
You lifted this misery
You set me free

Hush my whine
Pull down the veil before my eyes
Shook my ground
Falling heavy challenged me to rise

This I swear on my own grave
I will never ever give up on you This I swear on my own blood
I’ll eternally be true to you and to myself

Mistakes, yeah I’ve done a few
And many chances I blew
Blinded by the fooling bright
Halo of my harmless lies
Doing good for the sake of the good
Is a long and blissful ride
On the road to Devil’s den
Yet, every one denies

Defy my pride
Pull the rug under my feet
A call divine
Letting go has never been so sweet

This I swear on my own grave
I will never ever give up on you This I swear on my own blood
I’ll eternally be true to you and to myself
