If you look in the grass, you’ll see my ear…Fixed well, black blood does not stain the hands… I erased my memories, they melted, near the chimney or radiator, I don’t know. The fetus spoke me with his kind of voice, nails in the language: “It reaches milestone, here”.
History continues, the Phantom of the Opera screams its white poetry as also all Baudelaire moan in the world. These absurdities are so poisonous and they penetrate so deeply, that the bile after the enjoyment could still sink. I believe that she was beautiful, I believe that this Brown was bitchy. She loved slashing, knitting, kneading, crushing flesh and emotions. See, I am just a wound. “In Your Blood” was a desperate attempt to exist, against all and everything. A dark and delicate manifest, a perforating Metal which could leave no one indifferent.
Bloody theater, this “Horror Metal” “vintage” that sees its release on january 2012, is full of pernicious and hungry worms, so much the better, because it is a feast of King! Death/Thrash/Gothic-Black baroque n’roll (Necrodeath syndrom), Guignol with an axe decapites here all children, breaking the crane as it breaks a nut. I threw up my innocence in the basins of the despair, I think having seen at the bottom the smiling face of Cadaveria.
The stables are changing but not the words. Epic deflagrations & lyrical flights, abrasive voice-whore (“Assassin”) for the most reckless, scouring agent solos, this music that is irritated as the Naple’s garbage from Italy.
Imagine Arch Enemy trailing in the “Bas-Fonds” of Renoir… rinsed, humiliated and lynched, as you, see this Black Metal does not forgive (“The Days of The after And behind”). Progressive Metal as hell is paved from good intentions, this “Open Metal” is embodied as a trap to wolves. Lost in mosses it flirts with grasses but gnaws away the bones of the awkward shaman (“The Oracle”, fascinating eruption).
Beyond the noise, there is this music. As a rat waiting to be crushed by the mouth of a vaginal snake, the flesh licked by acid, I think to remember that once I really loved this music. Relentless, but epidermal and “reassuring”, at the bottom… I was still living…
“This Is Not The Silence”, if there is any? An introspective trip, useless bloodletting of the aborted hopes. Hypnotic martial riffs and always this sharpened voice as a razor, slashing satin skins, this scary thrill. In another life and in another style Tool or Bjork have already dug the fertile land… The puzzle will be the abyss, the regenerative artwork. You know, I still cry when I listen to “The Night’s Theatre”, Lorca whispered to my ear: “all is not yet finished…”
Pop Art Metal, Mystery Novel or Horror Metal, CADAVERIA barrier is white and invites us to the wedding. …and the bride is so beautiful…
