You are missed, Dawn

Power lines,
Steel webs confine,
Violating the brownish sky.
Hard grey smothers,
Earth, like cancer.
Cracks revealing,
Ground below.
Broken and bleeding,
every seed, every stone.

One of my favorite albums of all time, Fear of God's "Within The Veil" began with the above quote and you knew it wasn't going to be a cheery album. It's been ten years since Dawn passed and this has to be the darkest week in metal. We lost three great musicians all of which released albums that I cherish and love. So, today I raise my glass and listen to my metal brothers and sisters that are no longer with us. You all are missed dearly.
