HISTORY

Initially in 2005, Dante Granados (Guitars /Synths), Gian Granados (Vocals /Guitar) and Pedro Vera (Bass) belonged to a progressive metal cover band called “Caustica X” with which they obtained many positive reactions in their presentations around México City.
With that encouragement, in 2009 this three long-time band mates decided to create an original project with their own material taking diverse influences from progressive metal/rock and melodic death metal, built over a cinematic orchestra - inspired on Hans Zimmer- and a mixture of clear melodic and heavy growls vocals, passing through groovy/djenty heavy riffs in odd time signatures.
During the creative process of “Caged in Memories” drummer Antonio Guerrero and growl singer Daniel González joined to the band to conform the current alignment.
CAGED IN MEMORIES
After travelling to Finland, having their first concert in Europe and the experiences they acquired in that country with bands like Seventh Wonder, Amoral, Hypothesis etc. the band realized the magnitude of creating an album with a professional production. Therefore Dante decided to invite Erik Mikalsen to the production team of “Caged in Memories”.
4 years of creative process and recording sessions later, “Caged in Memories” was complete and the band took the decision of entrusting the post-production (mix and mastering) to Nick Sampson (Producer of Poliphya, Born of Osiris, Emmure Asking Alexandria etc.) whose huge experience supported in order to give shape to the final result.
“Caged in Memories” is a concept album with 7 songs and 54 minutes long composed by Dante Granados (music) and Gian Granados (lyrics) will be out on January 9th, 2016.
Anima Tempo is currently working on their 2nd studio album which is planned to be released in late 2017.

Track Name: Last awakening
1-LAST AWAKENING

Remember this time when our skies were drained obscure
The haze of departed fate
I will raise my head and gaze towards
Where the dawn of pure desires
Marks the end of yesterday
Last breath of life, the cycle ends

Ad aeternitatem
Sine exitus,
Aestus
Onustus
Tempestas et Ignis,
Ex spiritu ad terram
Track Name: Confessions
2-Confessions

Time rings in my fear and begs me near
Her sharp silhouette appears
Sleepless harbingers across the stairwell
They bring nothingness back to where I dwell

Defiant ink smears tense
Silence at dusk, while I wade in consequence
Waves wash over, all ash and smoke
Since the day scorn brought us afloat… Soaked in sin

Shimmers break in through this rusted cage
Words adorned with bursting sage
Lips careening madly towards a torn page
Yearning escape from my dreamscapes
These memories, these bloodshot ripples in symmetry

I cannot find stillness in this ache
Faded, distant you awake
Our creation, delving down amongst the dust

Walls wail hollow, your brazen deceit
A breach of trust, upon the jagged edge of treason

Ties that bind us fateful
Arms exposed left no choice
Protection, salvation
A soul's reason destroyed

X 2
Colliding fates
Passed on by ancestry
Soiled hands
Command mastery
Revolution, exiled to grieve
Above our willful abyss

Ties that bind us fateful
Arms exposed left no choice
Protection, salvation
A soul's reason destroyed

X 2
Colliding fates
Passed on by ancestry
Soiled hands
Command mastery
Revolution, exiled to grieve
Above our willful abyss
Track Name: Art of deception
3-Faith Collapsed

Standing encircled by the light
I’m a slave confined to vultures’ might
These tremblings won’t subside
Day by day I’m falling prey
Day by day I’m falling prey
And I know their howling yearning is my guide
To the art of deception

Your silence manifests
Lost is my last line of defense
Have hidden blades stained innocence?

The bell tolls once more
Time suspends the end of wars
Fallen forlorn
Onto mercy's thorns

These nightmares seep into my reality
Away from hallowed ground
Your hands draw out

What you left behind
Faith collapsed unbound
The touch of raven skin
Life beyond all sin

What you left behind
Faith collapsed unbound
When I shut these eyes
Your words repeat within, my hope remised
Flickers of a flame speak your reign
While you beckon
Questions craving closure
Haunt me every day
Torn hearts on parade
Lingering in vain
Am I to blame, the crux of pain
For your glance behind my mask?

X 2
Flesh and body cloaked
Reflecting in visions deep inside
Brotherly love evoked
In shards of glass, chimeras crystalize

Symphonic plagues crescendo
As it courts my dawn in reckoning

Lone locks of hair
And cinders raging fair
Across your sanctuary
Bereft in tears

X 2
Flesh and body cloaked
Reflecting in visions deep inside
Brotherly love evoked
In shards of glass, chimeras crystalize
Track Name: Scarlet Angel
4-Scarlet Angel

My precious angel
Kiss this tide away
Mend mine deserted eyes
Fallen one, find your solace inside
Don’t hide behind my lost pride

Embrace me
Grip me tightly
Whisper your unsung heart

The truth belies
Your grace, it weighs me down
Beauty Immersed in misery
Snowbound

And I conjure the skies
As darkness above descends
Cause I sense your calls
Deliverance
Reveal yourself
Finally free

Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel please
Forgive all I am
And my past seize

Clarity’s blaze rips the line
Suspended you rise divine
While I scream for a last goodbye
A last goodbye

My precious angel
Kiss this tide away
Mend mine deserted eyes

And I conjure the skies
As darkness above descends
Cause I sense your calls
Deliverance
Carries thru my veins
Destiny set aflame

Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel please
Forgive all I am

Scarlet angel
Here I’ll wake and wait
By rapture’s gates
My scarlet angel please
Forgive all I am
And my past seize
Track Name: Cellophane eyes
6- Cellophane eyes

You delivered her
To her barren prayer
Primal malice perpetual
Undyingly righteous in your ways
Perdition compelled, ripe to raise

Fumes fan the famed
Nightfall draws, halos shake, heavy pale with point-blank rain
For I shall doze blind
Every man who begs your bane
And sign the horizon in your name

Your enterprise triggered callus
With lips to the wind you spoke
Of our covenant stray in smoke
By your command we are artless

Cellophane eyes
Desire rests by my side, a godless veiled bride
Serrated mistakes snake
Beneath the cracks watching me nigh
Setting traps within
Within each lie

Where is your instinct of survival?
Come clean or pay the cost of denial

Towering claws caress
Forced by your serpent’s arrest
Lust lashes full of agony
My sworn oath harbors your unending plea

Towering claws caress
Forced by your serpent’s arrest
Remorse absent counterfeiting
Centuries cave to my siren's sting

My canvas red with hate assured to a soundtrack obscure
Your lament sealed by subversion, forever empty of words
Track Name: Caged in memories
7- Caged in Memories

Pt. I Desperation



Reflections, Obsessions

Their echoes leave me blinded

The inception of deception

I will release my demons

Affection, the blackened curse upon my blood

With violent sympathy

She summons a name I know so well



Inside my soul a silent mourning

Every hour ceasing forevermore

Their chimes challenge my purpose

What is my path?


An empty space, cipher to experience

Countless wicked dues to repay

A murderer ‘till my last day
It’s time to surrender



While her strings clench from all directions

A seed of doubt colors my core

Shivers too visions to ignore

Damage done


A bloodline betrayal of faith and frail

Her sweet tongue wraps around my neck

A wolfsbane offering to bated lips

My realm forsaken



These days of steel and concrete

Will cull the past into bloom

These days I seek the obsolete

To succumb to time's hollow tomb

Pt. II Contrition



The last rays of stars jar this solemn skyline

Curtains fall crimson, affixed with crimes


Pale twilight unravels my shame

Enlightening the pages of my life



My sworn secrets eclipsed

My house of cards overthrown

My fate to be trussed from future sins
In the aftermath
beyond my tomorrow



And when you stretched out for my hand

Deaf ears to deathly ground, a lamb to the slaughter


For what you reaped, for all you have sowed

With no remorse, duty to your own



On the eve of the end
I repent
In memories of your descent

Over waters of contrition

Let it be known I am hellion


Frozen inside my wilted world
I see no light,

A heart rests assured it's written

Truce finds its way to yesterday



How could you not recognize?

This game of damnation

The shallow legacy

We were born into

Could only rip apart our history?



On the eve of the end I repent

In memories of your descent

Over waters of contrition

Let it be known I am hellion



Frozen inside my wilted world I feel no light.

A soul rests beside me in time

And filters thru the carrion



All dreams held dear

All fatherly fear

All wounds exposed

Victims of your rule imposed



Pt. III Acceptance


And so I must commit
Nothing remains

For I have strived to lead,
with justice above life

Eying the grace of impure perfection

and the chance to seek complete absolution



I face forever

Grieving no guilt

Never to return

I will shed this heavy

Crown of thorns

And give in to the celestial



Time has come

Take me where
I belong
 my angel
