The dead.
The afterlife too, I think.

(More thanks to Karl Sanders than Brucie on that one though)


Okay, that was quite easy...

Now, can you tell me what the hell all of Rammstein's songs are about?
(Great pics by the way!)

Depends. I'd say Metal in general tends to value lyrics less profoundly than some genres, and as a result a lot of Metal lyrics tend to be shite, but I don't ignore them completely. Lyrics are part of the image of a band, to me, and as I've discussed elsewhere recently, the image can enhance my enjoyment of a band whose music i already like (but can't make up for not liking the music).

Dune isn't shit because of Sting, though he doesn't help. It's shit because of the way Lynch doesn't trust his actors to express emotion through, I don't know, ACTING, and so forces them to narrate every single fucking emotion as a voice-over, like Silver Age Marvel thought-bubbles.

De Laurentiis wanted Lynch because he was an oddball but it wasn't until he started work on it that they realised just how odd he was going to make it. The producers and money men freaked out, took control of the artistic side of things and effectively caged Lynch from doing what he wanted.

I've seen Dune once, as a teenager, oddly compelling despite being mostly shit. Still pretty weird from what I remember, though not by Lynch's usual standards of course.

I'm not arsed about lyrics being meaningful and I'm even less arsed about whether I can "identify" with them (a nauseously common trope among fans of mainstream bullshit pop music, "oh, I can really relate to Adele, she really speaks to me" - fuck off and fucking die in a pool of acid vomit), but it's always nice when lyrics sound cool.

You just reminded me of somebody else's lyrics I like.

I do like some of Hank's lyrics, it gets a bit PE-class on occasion but every so often a line floats out that makes me think "damn, this guy has my number"... (see also Mike Muir)

Then there's things like 'Can You Speak This?' and the stuff on the Henrietta Collins & The Wifebeating Childhaters EP that suggests he may need professional psychiatric help.

Which apparently includes a line which translates as, "You are what you eat, and you're eating my cock."

It probably says a lot that my favourite Metal lyricists are the ones who immerse themselves fully into escapist fantasy - Byron Roberts (though I've still not forgiven him), Brooke from AoP/Hesper Payne, King Diamond (his English is a bit lumpen, I don't deny it, but there's something charming that really appeals to me) - rather than someone who "speaks to me" on some personal level. I'm also quite fond of Mike Skalzi's lyrics, especially on Slough Feg's Traveller and Hammers Of Misfortune's The Bastard - two albums which manage to combine clearly saying something deep and interesting with total fantasy/sci-fi unrealism.

Nothing whatsoever. I rarely pay any attention to them, I treat the vocals as another instrument. I'm generally not bothered.

They seem perpetually and comepletely obsessed with cock. :lol:

Just been listening to my iPod while washing up and heard the lyrical gem from 'Red Bomb' by Whiplash

"Hand... over the cash, for the right price, she'll give you the gash!"

Fucking thrash poetry that is.

Almost.


Today I will meet a gentleman
He likes me so much he could eat me up
Soft parts and even hard ones
are on the menu

Because you are what you eat
and you know what it is

It is my part – no
My part – no
There that's my part – no
My part – no

The dull blade good and proper
I'm bleeding heavily and feeling sick
Although I have to fight to stay awake
I keep eating while in convulsions

It's just so well seasoned
and so nicely flambéed
and so lovingly served on porcelain
And with it, a good wine
and gentle candlelight
Yeah I'll take my time
You've got to have some culture

Because you are what you eat
and you know what it is

It is my part – no
My part – no
Because that's my part – no
Yes it's my part – no

A cry will ascend to heaven
It will cut through hosts of angels
Feather-flesh will shriekingly fall
from the top of the clouds onto my childhood

Wurzels lyrics, an enormous amount. And Britney, of course, Sometimes really cuts to the heart of the teenage emotional dilemma. Also of course King Diamond lyrics are crucial, a) because it's a story, and b) because I can often not understand a word he's squealing.
