You longed for a face,
a flare to glow far beyond
the enemy that rebellion
taught you to create
Antithetical responses to mores
Tell me, how free are you?
A mask found through an identity - shared by millions!
What does this make you?
Only fools deny the scent of air so sweet
or the taste of ripened bulbs in bloom
in defiance of their enjoyment by the elite
as they search for beliefs to assume.
You wheeze for breath so jaggedly,
and your pulse beats out of time with other men -
all in pursuit of a self to call your own
through the torture of trudging against the grain
You've found your "face",
but it's so poorly sewn-on
The ill-fitting skin
betrays your soulless eyes
An influence on my own works. Upbeat, lightning-fast, pummeling psychedelic death metal à la Mithras with cheery major-scale melodies and an emotional, frank presentation. A modern masterpiece. Glass Shrine
Another project I was involved in - avant-garde metal (compiled in exquisite corpse fashion with no coordination between composers) with 14 musicians, dozens of genres and excellent riffs. Glass Shrine
I've kept this album in my wishlist for a year waiting for the right time, right place. I think this is it now, for reasons known to me. And it's possibly one of the most important albums of this time (together with Mgła's Age of Excuse).
Worse still, one of the most important works of art of this time: not just in metal and not just in music.
And OK, my lovely one from them.
How tf anybody can call DsO fascists because of this remains inconceivable to me. YomaBarr
