Random Morbidity

I should collaborate with Mudvayne and do a Cyanide Remix of ‘Death Blooms’, where I pour cyanide/acid down the throat of Chad(main singer)and make him recite the poem at the end of the song as his life – and vocal chords – wither and dissolve….

Why this thought occurred, I have no clue, as I quite like the crazy, astrological, apocalypse-obsessed fucks. Why, I even got another album of theirs earlier ….

I guess I thrive on morbid humour…I can be a sick fuck like that…

In any case I rather like this – great imagery – a classy way to close a song, especially one characterised by bludgeoning guitars and throat-searing vocals:

Dark for fear of failure
An inner gloom as wide as an eye and fermenting
Broiling hate
Death grip in my veins
Unveiling rancid petals
Flowering forth foul nectar
The space between a blink and a tear
Death blooms….

Who would’ve thought nu-metallers could be so fucking eloquent? Heh heh…

    Weirdly enough, a lot of nu metal songs seem to have really erudite lyrics. Which is an especially strange discovery when you cannot understand the lyrics for the shouting. 🙂

      We, yeah that is true, but it’s usually erudition on the side of intellectualism rather than poeticism, though I’m certainly not opposed to either…
      Of course when all else fails a nice cathartic burst of “Get fucked!” never goes amiss….though it’s usually the worst nu-metal songs that pick up that ball and run with it…..

        Ooh I don’t know – there’s a place in my heart for some of the worst nu metal songs, I reckon. 🙂

          Well, erudition and expletives can co-exist pretty well – it’s just when it’s nowt but expletives or rap cliches that things fall arse over tit…..heheh

            Gosh you’re clever. 🙂 (I’m not being sarcastic.)
            Being involved in the music industry to some level I’m not so much offended by the utterly shite lyrics as I am by the utterly shite level of writing and production that most “popular” music has. The thing I’m most offended by, however, as a singer (sweedie), is how many modern artists are auto-tuned. Seriously, if they can’t fucking sing then find someone who can, like me!! Argh!!! I can’t talk about it. It irritates me too much. 🙂
