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
Death grip in my veins
Unveiling rancid petals
Flowering forth foul nectar
The space between a blink and a tear
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. 🙂
