Dann 'the djentle giant' Some of the songs on this album could make a perfect soundtrack for 'Twin Peaks' or Fatih Akin's 'Head-on' (one of my favourite movies). There is something in this music I cannot put my finger on, but it gets me. It should be awesome to hear and see it live. Favorite track: Stockholm syndrome / The fall.

Bartłomiej Musielak "Küsse aus Berlin" is one of those albums which you cannot rate after the first listening. This apparently hard and heavy material assimilates better and better when you listen to it more and more. Climatic, noisy and overwhelming style of Zero Absolu mesmerises listener. I recommend for all post rock/metal lovers, especially those who like Isis or Neurosis, which are (in my opinion) the most similar to this album. Favorite track: Andalucía.

Track Name: One second lag
Once more, stashed away.
Behind the curtain of the right path
Into the lake
I dive again

I fall off the bridge never mind if you follow me.
The feeling of diving is so powerful
No matter how I'll crash
Cause it brings me back over and over,
Cause now, in the darkness, shadows gather in rhythm
Tiny moving particles celebrating earth
In a clumsy move they feel alive

The train is going fast to the slaughterhouse
We join our fates in the sound of a heartbeat
Drinking for Dancing and dancing for fucking to exist
The past or the future? The world with one second lag.
Track Name: Time fades away
Sliding a whisper, a fire, when you take my hand.
At the top of the cliff, time to take off, your world is mine,
you take off your clothes, I introduce myself to the lord
I know the landscapes, but this is a whole new country.

Time fades away and corrupts your eyes
Time fades away

Believe in our fate, Wait a second, this is the 2nd round
I grip your neck, then your hair, taming the shy and wild
I hold your hands there’s no escape, tomorrow never happens
This melted ice cream is my favorite flavor.

Time fades away and corrupts your eyes
Track Name: Stockholm syndrome / The fall
Let’s face it, no evolution,
When there’s people trying to put things in line
Let’s face it, back to the middle age chasing witches
In fear and terror, the good old days seems so pure
(But)
Evolution is not there
Have you ever learnt any lessons?
Why are you so scared of trying something new?
You’re still in the same place and singing the same song
When you said:

« Can you please be one of us.
You should get a wife and be happy
Stray cats ain’t got no families
Join the hive and make honey for the people
Be a good boy. »

Well, what do you expect from me?
How do you feel when I’m perfect?
How do you feel when I hold you in my arms, in sweat?
When we stare?
When we argue, when I’m behind you?
How do you feel when I lose my temper, when I’m not perfect for you anymore?
How do you feel when I protect you?
How do you feel? How do you feel?

How do you feel when I’m blind,
How do you feel when I’m drunk, telling you how I don’t trust the world anymore,
when you come back, but too late

How do you feel when the sun is setting and we all become moths?
How do you feel when our heads turn around and around and around and around?
How do you feel when I'm unpredictable?
How do you feel?
How do you feel when you think the hive will save me? And cure me?

Needless to say, I don’t belong here
what do you call « one of us? »
The hive? Seriously?

Trial damned

Grandir et devenir tout ce que tu as toujours détesté
Offrir ton âme à tous les vautours du « bien »
Admirer tous les hommes qui te dirigent et qui pourtant te violent tous les jours
Cracher à la gueule d’un pseudo sentiment de liberté
Track Name: The disclaimer
So, take my hand!!
Because we are in love... Today
We are in something...
What is supposed to be.

Hey, call my name.
I'm Blind and wobbly.
We are in love.
I don’t want to be forgotten.
Because we are in love maybe

Hey, call my name.
Part time sinner, we were in love… I guess.
Track Name: Hail in the soul
I'm scared of you, but I need you,
my feet are bringing me home,
but I hope for unexpected,
an event, a salvation a god sign.
But I'm cursed and lust is my sin,
my sweet and favorite sin.

Hail in the soul
like tumors in the shape of question marks.
Looking for a purpose, finding a chemical answer,
an instant, a temporary answer.
I still believe that you're somewhere waiting for me.
I try to find where I belong tonight.

Tonight, all the memories are sweet and sour.
An inner burn is rotting my faith.
Life is a saw I have to deal with it,
and heal all the cuts alone when I want to die.
Track Name: Küsse aus Berlin
I’ve been searching for too long,
this is now,
and this is happening,
I swallow my pride.
A heart full of hope and hate.
It’s just locked here
but I can’t grab it.

Sometimes I want to open up
Digging the scar with my fingers.
Naked and dazed, I will hang around outside
releasing my heart
Full of blood I will draw my fate.
Making a painting of the origin of the world.
Switch off the sun.
Some different souls are gathering in pain

Close your eyes.
Is it red, what you see?
Your body is a temple,
I wish I was the priest

when I’ll wake up
I’ll go and walk thru the ruins of history
I’ll send you a 1000 kisses from Berlin
I wish I was there destroying all the walls
swallowing dust!!!
Is it forbidden to play god?
Kneeling at the altar.
Let me in.
Close your eyes.
Is it red, what you see?
Your body is a temple,
I wish I was the priest
Track Name: Old pictures of girls I used to love
at last, spreading water.
Last hit before the big step.
This time, I let the past behind

New future, new rules
let it go all those forgotten memories

Review some recollections
Looking back, yearning.
Looking forward, and hope for better days
Life will never be the same
It's so attractive and handsome
Even if there's a part of me who wants
To watch old pictures of girls I used to love
And old friends who became what they used to hate.

This time, I let the past behind
clean the dirt and start again
the same character loading adventures
game over, play again.
Track Name: Folding the reed
Silence
When I went down the hill
I thought of living my life with you
There was a challenge and I didn’t succeed
I needed to spit out all the poison
Loneliness awakes the demon
This plague we’re all living with

Dark room and empty bed.
I want to cut the wire.
This fucking burden is a bless but
To bear it is a fucking mess
The wind is cold
the rain falls like needles jabbing my skin
so take my hand, into the lake we don’t feel the pain

The Storm is coming
all is quiet, so quiet now

The reed is folding
a dried tear’s drawn on your face
the lake is overrunning
it’s burning my eyes

Yesterday is a healed contusion.
Tomorrow is a probable death.
Today is life.
And life will never be the same again
