about

Album Notes:
Austin, TX based Deserts of Mars was formed in 2006 with a heavy fuzzed out bass sound and the idea that the Riff Rules ALL!!!


Deserts of Mars is:

Tony Salvaggio – Founding member of DoM whose growling bass has been known to shake the stars and is the perfect compliment to his melodic vocals.
Bob Hoff – Guitarist creating majestic highs and crunching low sonic melodic blasts.
Erik Kinservik -The Space Viking brings the thunder of meteors hitting moons

Garnering positive reviews and loyal fans known as Martian Maniacs, there is but one goal among this trio of galactic travelers: Spread heaviness and Mars Metal across the universe in a quest for musical DoMination on every planet that craves rock and loves to groove.


Martian scrolls outline a recent history:

Always searching for the next elusive Mars Metal song hidden in dark matter or between space/time this power trio is aided in their quest by the visual leadership of former drummer Billy Garretsen. Billy (Perfect Dork Studios) accepted a mission to train his newborn daughter to fight Rocktopi and left the drumming post of DoM for this nobile mission. Billy stays connected to the band and helps with visual design and direction of the band’s flyers etc… Upon Billy’s depature DoM reconnected with the Mars Curiosity Rover and activated its secret mission to find a suitable replacement. Curiosity unearthed Erik the Space Viking from his cryostasis deep within the Martian caves and sent him to earth on his Viking ship to bring the thunder to DoM.


“Transmission” is the culmination of the first leg of this planet hopping journey, via the navigation and propulsion of engineer Mark Dufour and the relentless rock of DoM.

Track Name: Send More Gasoline
I put my pedal to the metal
Never thought I’d run out of fuel
Out of drive
Out of touch
Doubting all I thought
I knew
Spinning out
Losing speed
How will I get back
To you

Stuck in the middle of nowhere
Lost so far from home
I need more
Gasoline
Can you hear me calling
When I’m all alone
You know just
What I need
Keep my engine going
Get me on the road
Just send more
Gasoline

The desert closes all around me
So much space it
Suffocates
Out of hope
Out of drive
I can’t leave this
Up to fate
Out of fire
Out of fuel
Please don’t let me
Hesitate

Stuck in the middle of nowhere
Lost so far from home
I need more
Gasoline
Can you hear me calling
When I’m all alone
You know just
What I need
Keep my engine going
Get me on the road
Just send more
Gasoline

Stuck in the middle of nowhere
Lost so far from home
I need more
Gasoline
Can you hear me calling
When I’m all alone
You know just
What I need
Keep my engine going
Get me on the road
Just send more
Gasoline

You get my engine going
Let’s rev it up once again
You are my
Gasoline
You keep my engine going
Let’s rev it up once again
You are my
Gasoline
Track Name: Dreamcrushers Inc.
How did we get here
So far from our dreams
We just let them die out
And that's how it seems
As each one perished
It called out our name
But we just turned away
And buried our shame

We let the world
Grind us
But that's not how it
It should be
So many times I’ve
Laid down
I let them walk all
Over me
Now's the time for
Fighting
We make own
Destiny

Can’t see the horizon
When you’re under the ground
Just feel the boot heels
Pushing you down
I spent my time digging
My way the sky
And I’ll pull you with me
You just have to try

We let the world
Grind us
But that's not how it
It should be
So many times I’ve
Laid down
I let them walk all
Over me
Now's the time for
Fighting
We make own
Destiny
We let the world
Grind us
But that's not how it
It should be
So many times I’ve
Laid down
I let them walk all
Over me
Now's the time for
Fighting
We make own
Destiny
Join me in this fight now
This self fulfilling
Prophecy
Track Name: Honor Above All
I always knew just
Who I was
Even when it
Wasn't popular
I took the hardest path
I wouldn't compromise
I wouldn't back down
I couldn't say the lies
Because in the
Harshest light of day
To trust in myself
Was the only way

And this may be the
Pride before the fall
(Before the fall)
But I have have chosen
Honor Above All
(Above All)

I know it's tempting
Just to give in
When the bastards
Always seem to win
But at the end of days
What will you leave behind
I'll choose honor
Because that choice is mine

And this may be the
Pride before the fall
(Before the fall)
But I have have chosen
Honor Above All

And this may be the
Pride before the fall
(Before the fall)
But I have have chosen
Honor Above All
Yes I have chosen
Honor Above All
Track Name: Strike
It's time to strike out
No turning back
We leave the past now
In our tracks
The sound, the fury
Our souls burn bright
We have no choice but
To own the night

Strike hard
Just like a hammer
Churn the dust beneath our heels
Pierce through
Just like an arrow
We crush all doubt beneath our wheels

We raise our voices
To the growing storm
Steel and lightning
Our hearts transform
Raise your fists high
Our only friends
As those before us
Reap the whirlwind

Strike hard
Just like a hammer
Churn the dust beneath our heels
Pierce through
Just like an arrow
We crush all doubt beneath our wheels

We stand on the edge of forever
Looking towards our future's past
Seeing our fate laid before us
Those who oppose us cannot last
Band together in this struggle
And strike against the universe
Track Name: March of the Meteors
C’mon Baby
Let’s streak ‘cross the sky
Splitting the heavens
Burning through time
Celestial bodies
Our orbits entwined
Celestial bodies
Bring yours next to mine

Tear through the galaxies
Our stars become one
We’ll both go nova
Burning twin suns
Planets and meteors
Venus and Mars
Light years of pleasure
All can be ours

The spheres serenade us
Warmed by the Sun
As we lay together
We become as one
Celestial bodies
The galaxies open wide
Celestial bodies
Won’t you be mine
Track Name: Ready to Burn
I always smell smoke before fire
See trouble from miles away
But you snuck in through my blind spot, baby
Ready to ruin the day
And I tried so hard to forget you
Avoiding you every way
But you turn up just like a bad penny
And I am the one who pays

Well what do you know about karma
It seems like you never learn
I’ve got this advice for you, baby
You’d best be ready to burn
You think that you’ve got your hooks in
But the tables are going to turn
You brought the fire on yourself, honey
You’d best be ready to burn

You think that you’re back in my life now
Ready to start up again
But this time it’s gonna be different , sugar
I’m not letting you win
You think that I won’t fight back now
It’s back to more of the same
But I gotta tell you one thing, honey
I'm the one holding the flames

And what do you know about karma
It seems like you never learn
I’ve got this advice for you, baby
You’d best be ready to burn
You think that you’ve got your hooks in
But the tables are going to turn
You brought the fire on yourself, honey
You’d best be ready to burn

I hate to see you coming
But it’s good watching you walk away
And I know you’ll be back here, baby
Sooner than later I’d say
And I ain’t taking no chances
Waiting for my luck to turn
Next time you feel like showing up, honey
You’ll see just what I learned

Track Name: This Time
Once again I let you down
I didn’t even have to try
I failed at every
Everything I did today
I wish I could tell you why

Once again this time it’s
Gonna be different
Once again this time it’s
All in my hands
Once again this time it's
Gotta be different
Once again this time it’s
Gotta to go as I planned

Again you tell me
That actions speak much louder than words
But I don’t know what to say
I tell myself that
I can make it through tomorrow
But I just echo yesterday

Once again this time it’s
Gonna be different
Once again this time it’s
All in my hands
Once again this time it's
Gotta be different
Once again this time it’s
Gotta to go as I planned

And I know that
I’ve said these things a million times
But I’ll make it a million and one
So many words I’ve said
Promises I never kept
So many things left undone

Once again this time it’s
Gonna be different
Once again this time it’s
All in my hands
Once again this time it's
Gotta be different
Once again this time it’s
Gotta to go as I planned

One more time you need to know
One more time this is for sure
Once more time I’ve said these things
All a million times
One more time you need to know
One more time this is for show
Once more time I’ve said these things
All a million times
Track Name: 1,000 Suns
I came home to
The sound of laughter
Somehow they knew
About you and me
Was it fun to
Spread our business
To everyone and
Into the street
Did it make you
Feel much bigger
Was it funny
How you treated me
I could have shrugged off
The betrayal
But it was there for
Everyone to see

Don't you know that
I lived on anger
I had to
To survive
I know I can't
Live on hatred
But Lord knows how
Hard I tried

And I know that
You had your Ogres
Once again through
Word of mouth
They were saying
That you were spreading
More than lies
Way down South
And I know that
You asked about me
Trying to bait me
Bringing up the past
I wanted peace and
I wanted distance
I should have known that
It wouldn't last

Don't you know that
I lived on anger
I had to
To survive
I know I can't
Live on hatred
But Lord knows how
Hard I tried

And I hate that
I have this anger
I'm ashamed that
You're the one
Bringing back
All this hatred
Brighter than a thousand suns

Don't you know that
I lived on anger
I had to
To survive
I know I can't
Live on hatred
But Lord knows how
Hard I tried

And I hate that
I have this anger
I'm ashamed that
You're the one
Bringing back
All this hatred
Brighter than a thousand suns
Track Name: Cities on Fire
I swept through the wastelands
Searching for you
And now my chest tightens
As you cross the room
Your breath burns my neck now
As you whisper my name
It burns more intensely
Than these cities in flames

The world split asunder
And tore you away
And I fought forever
For this very day

The sky is the color
Of red death and despair
Still I dreamt of your blue eyes
And the scent of your hair
The scars that I bear now
Are worth all the pain
To hold you here tightly
In this city in flames

The world split asunder
And tore you away
And I fought forever
For this very day
Through ashes and heartache
Through valleys and spires
I braved Hell just to be here
In these cities on fire

As the world came down around us
And it all ended in fire
I fought so hard to be by your side
Now that we're together
I'd even fight the flames
They burn like my love
And we'll never be the same

The world split asunder
And tore you away
And I fought forever
For this very day
Through ashes and heartache
Through valleys and spires
I braved Hell just to be here
In these cities on fire
