Sleep well, B

B was part of the creation of Dimhymn, IXXI, Lifelover, Ondskapt and Woundism.

Sorry to hear that your musical visions no longer will be audible for the rest of the world. A great influence always leaves a greater absence that its own body, and B had a great influence in the underground black metal world. The absence after him is greater than this life. The silence that remains echoes out; an echo that passes through a great audience. A respectful farewell and a journey towards another horizon. Everyone is unable to look back; or turn back. The can only rely on false memories. It scares them and they fear the brutal truth. But eventually, they will accept the inevitable and respectfully let their source of inspiration be put to rest. Sleep well, B.

Are you a Lifelover?

I could say that I am. With being a Lifelover, I of course mean I am a fan of the band Lifelover.

How did I discover them?

I used to search a specific music-blog for new and cool bands, I have done this since long ago. Many times when visiting that blog, the band Lifelover popped up several times, I had read only a little about them and they seemed so far away from my music taste [read about my music taste here] with their weird song titles. One day I had seen them once too much on that site, so I thought:

“Oh, what the heck Jacob, you might as well check them out anyway if they are that good!”

The first album that I acquired was Konkurs. Suddenly, a new world of sound opened up for me; I was amazed! I now have all of their albums on my comp, and I’m longing for the day when I have purchased all their albums and booklets and cool stuff.

Lifelover is a sarcastic/humorous band (that is why they scared me; I didn’t realize that they where sarcastic until I read their lyrics), it is an avant garde-ish mix of experimental black metal and depressive rock. Their albums  feel like chaotic mood swings; one song can be joyful and upbeat while the next is deep and hateful. I find a great artistic value in their music, it is crappy and cheesy, Not in the Troll 2 way, but in a way that makes it awesome!

They have a total of 4 albums. The first two, Pulver and Erotik are acquired taste; you need to listen to them a couple of times before you get used to their special, raw sound. The latter two, Konkurs and Dekadens are just simply wonderful, a perfect blend of urban angst and beauty. Lifelover is the number one choice to listen to whenever I get the feels. They have always made me happy.
