Desire - Locus Horrendus
Dramatic is what I call this. I didnít even know there was music like this, I mean I know that there was music like this, but an entire album of dramatic emo-death metal without fast parts, unheard off in my opinion. Perhaps these people have created a new genre, I wouldnít know! I donít even know if there is a market for this kind of thing! Letís review! If you are manically depressed, or youíve just broke up with your girlfriend after a 5 year relationship or your wife has just died due to some horrible disease or something like that you should definitely purchase this album. Slow dramatic heavy, almost doomy guitars with slow drums, an enchanting keyboard and not always brutal vocals are the ingredients for Desire. The vocals have a lot of variation from evil whispering to brutal dramatic long screams. The guitar and bass are slow, and some might even call this music doom due to the pass of the music. The pass is picked up only a couple of times on the 70 minutes lasting album. The drums are slow as well, except for one blastbeat and a double bass here and there. I must say that I really like the keyboards on the album, they enchant me and even make me forget that I donít like the music. Job well done for the guy behind the keys. Now about the lyrics. Iíve never read anything so depressing I believe. These lyrics make Jonathan Davis of Korn look like a child begging for some fucking G.I. Joe action figure or something. The next time when I listen to this cd will probably when Iíve broken up with my girlfriend, or my parents died in a horrible car accident or something dramatic like that. But calling a song ď(Love Is) SuicideĒ, with an attitude like that youíre better off dead already. SOMETIMES you feel like that, and thatís when youíll listen to this album. But Iíll bet that the person who wrote the lyrics isnít a big John Lennon fanÖ. The conclusion is that Iím starting to like the music due to the keyboards and the melodic parts, which is a good thing for them, because that gives them a higher grade. But itís definitely something I havenít heard before, so give me time to get used to it. But depressed people all across the land, check it out!!! Just donít commit suicide yet!
