In our series of articles "In My Own Words", Lyktwasst - frontman of Life's Decay tells exclusively the readers of Wiadomosci24.pl about a new album "Dysrieuses".1. Etasthesie
Lyktwasst: Etasthesie is the introduction of the album. It is quite calm and mysterious with its deep violins and piano. The text is about the construction of a time, a dream, a universe. Most of the lyrics are built like a narration, an abstract story made with poetic images and strange situations. Sometimes it is pretty surrealistic, based on the force of the imagination. A dark universe appears, animated by slow rythmic and classical music instruments. All the lyrics of "Dysrieuses" are in french.2. Emerance
L.: Here is more power and dynamics. There is quite a lot of accoustic guitar which is more or less saturated. We still found classical music instruments but there is much more drums and metallic percussions. The atmosphere has some country folk inspiration. The lyrics are about an old and empty place in wich the time has erased the corridor's colors. A deer appaears like a dream in this strange landscape. In all the lyrics of "Dysrieuses", the narrator is "I". In
"Emerance" the main character is with someone and they are lost in this universe. They arrange and pick out the lights toghether, like a metaphor.3. Eabelia
L.: The main character searches her way, she has some lead in her hands, iron in her mouth and she makes a cast of her eyes. Music is based on tiny metallic percussions and experimental sounds. The piano is sweet and very present. We also found some heavy drums like a bad presage and at the end of the track we hear a little piano, a little melody, very sweet and like a contrast.4. Sulvisyan
L.: Some metronome's noises open the track. The question of time is always present and the metronome reminds us it. It is about the finiteness (finitude in french), the fact that something is approching to its end. The cello here is disturbing, insistent and is carried by the feminine voice. The guitar's melody is very dark and heavy. Then martial percussions appear and hold the guitar and bass. The track get more violent and powerfull.
