about

The In-Ear Trip began in February 2013 in Exarchia, Athens as a journey of the mind through dark city streets towards the light of the future. The inner voice that someone hears only when music triggers his imagination and his soul. When the in-ear headphones are plugged into his ears and then into his brain and take him away.
Andrew Kouretas started tripping through hard rock, punk,dark electro, post and alternative streets and cooperated with the producer George Bokos (Stone Cold Dead, George Kollias, Melechesh), who grasped the vision and the special vibe and produced, mixed and mastered a really powerful dark melodic album.
Ntinos Roulos's (Nightstalker), performance on the drums is full of groove and adrenaline and a special asset to the album.

Come join the In-Ear Trip!!

Track Name: Magnetic Fields
Angst and fear and beauty
Tear your head
And the door is opened
Now for you
My head is filled with water
And the surfaces are covered all

Magnetic fields
Wireless everywhere
In my soul, in your mind
Inaccessible and far from everyone
But sometimes far from you

You're in pain
But you're here for a reason
The level's up but
You're never gonna drown
Divine the beauty is the truth
Subconscious float in my soul
The more you touch
The less the pain
The music always plays
I can't have it anymore
Track Name: Love Pigs
Moisture in my brain
Leaves stains on your skin
Think about them and
Dry my love

Dark blink, stop the rain
I am blank, feel akin
Fail to leave me and
Try my love
You dare not

Clean shaped, clean shaved I am
Dirty inside and fortunate outside
And pervert you say I am
Rise and melt

Dark block, darker light
Try to unlock
You find me hard to fight
Feel the fright
Cause I won't see you right

In dirt we trust
But in fuck we rust
Gulping lust, I hate me
For I am not your last
Let me tear your clean pics
Oh, come on, we 're just two love pigs
Track Name: In-Ear Trip
Starting for a trip so far away
Everything is gonna be ok
I just wanna dance with all my friends
Now that I 'm feeling
There's no end

Before that
I can hear my inner ear
Something is really going on
My mind is making whole new ideas
I will write them down
And see them clear

My trip will start now
Will drive me
To my dreams
That come true, get real
Track Name: The Lost Ghost
In my dreams I wake up lost
This is what seizes me most
I touch my heart and feel the frost
And see a ghost

The ghost will look and blare
See what I do and stare
I don't want him as my friend
But he has snuck into my head

Back again in the rubble
I am in my dream and ramble
My dream is still alive
In your ocean and all I need is dive

In my dreams I wake up lost
This is what seizes me most
I touch my heart and feel the frost
And see a ghost

The ghost will look and blare
See what I do and stare
I don't want him as my friend
But he has snuck into my head

Evid si deen lla dna naeco ruoy ni
Evila llits si maerd ym
Elbmar dna maerd ym ni ma I
Elbbur eht ni niaga kcab

Back again in the rubble
I am in my dream and ramble
My dream is still alive
In your ocean and all I need is dive
Track Name: Day In The Dark
The water is now high
I'm sinking, I feel I will fly
I 'm closing my eyes and
I am falling into the blue sky

And the fire
That is burning inside
In your mind
Gonna make you fly
Fly free to the sky
Will bring the day in the dark

I dive with my thoughts bent
I'm holding my breath till the end
I'm dreaming again of the sea
That will set us both free

Traeh ym ni niap eht leef,leef
I feel yours
krad eht ni yad eht gnirb
Yawa lla sraef ym ekat
Will you show me the way?
Track Name: Blood Type
Youth emerging red from my soul
So hot that I cannot pretend
My love is not a stereotype
A dream in my world of truth

I am a bloody type
And you're my blood type
In this sacred, eternal archetype
Can you see the light
Within the shadow of darkness
God bless we have the same blood type

This type of passion is rare
And still an old one
Don't leave the past is unexplained
This time for us is in this shady present
Hot blood in both of our hearts

I am a bloody type
And you're my blood type
Track Name: Sidekicks
You're seeing and hearing, I know
But you 're feeling the dark blues
My sidekicks
Your tough love
Is the venom we have
This venom
In my blood and my heart

Fire has bent your resistance to the cold
Your clean self
You kick dirty, kick dirty
Kick dirty, kick dirty
Shake your mind a bit
Cause I won't be here

The only defined
Is the tough kick, the tough kick
The tough kick, the tough kick
The resonance can't be silenced
Transmitted through your eyes
Into the vacuum of your friend's soul

The bruises invisible
Indelible, transparent
Wanna kick you in your face
In your face, in your face
In your face
I hate the things you say
I am already bored

The only defined is the tough kick
The tough kick, the tough kick
The tough kick
The frequency is high
Transmitted through your eyes
Into the vacuum of your friend's soul
Track Name: Devious Soul
The look in your eyes has changed a lot
The people around you are not important
The only thing you wanna tell them
See the smile?
A devious smile

When you were a kid, you always smiled
You said yes and everything was fine
So you learned to say no
Cause it was not alright
See my soul?
A devious soul

The smile is gone
But another has appeared
The smile of confidence
The smile of strength
There's no return and
There's no comeback
Only the light, the devious light

The young man knows
That this was always there
Feel this hunch?
This devious hunch

No time for rest
My plan is the best
Feel this hunch?
This devious hunch

You're trying to see over the wall now
Your eort is without precedent
Your endeavour is certainly at stake
But you feel real and present

Drive fast, move ahead
The road is long
But in this you belong

Drive fast, move ahead
The road is long
But in this you belong
No time for rest
My plan is the best
Feel this hunch?
This devious hunch

Drive fast, move ahead
The road is long
But in this you belong
No time for rest
My plan is the best
Feel this hunch?
This devious hunch
Track Name: Vein Of Light
Blue the music's flowing
In my veins
I'll take the knife and
Cut it through

The background is not as perfect
As you wish
My skin, my blood, my heart
My hands look dirty

The music from my veins
Is the colour of the sky
I see the clouds
That will bring the rain
And I will not forgive that
The end has come
It's bluer than the music
This vein of light

The end, the start
The light,the night are here
I listen to the night song
I feel my chest is burning

The meaning of my soul I have found
I 'm set adrift
I say goodbye

Cause the music from my veins
Is the colour of the sky
I see the clouds
That will bring the rain
And I will not forgive that
The end has come
It's bluer than the music
This vein of light
