Gothenburg-Based Black Metal Outfit LIGHTLORN Stream New Lyric Video For “Dilation Sleep”

The band comments: “This was the last song I wrote for the EP, and although I ‘borrowed’ the title from my favourite sci-fi author, the lyrics bear only a tangential resemblance to that work. Of all the songs on the EP, I think Dilation Sleep best represents Lightlorn’s dichotomy between light and dark, between heavy and atmospheric. I like to think of it as a black metal ballad, melancholy and wistful yet ultimately optimistic.”

For Immediate Release: Angelspit’s New Single ‘Art Imitates War’.

“The music came from distorting smashed metal. When you hit metal it sings, but when you distort it, it screams…so it would be fair to say that I co-wrote the track with chaos and distortion! The lyrics cover the decay of the middle class, denial, drug abuse, domestic abuse, and mind-numbing social media telling you that everything will be OK if you stay plugged in. ‘Art Imitates War’ is an experiment in sonic brutality.”
– Zoog Von Rock, Angelspit.
