The Secrets of the Swedish New Moon

 
by Ormeny Francisc-Norbert
 
ABSTRACT: The present analytical approach of the music of the Swedish Gothic-Doom-Neo-progressive-Death metal band Lake of Tears represents an example of a borderline (between applied literature and philosophy) interpretation and expansion of some ideas and suggestions present in the rich musical universe of the band. The paper is divided into five parts (1.Introduction: origins, musical influences, emotional and visionary roots, echoes and associations, marks of endurances, magic ingredients of songs …; 2.On the specificity of the lovely human-reptiles and their later ascent into birds and on the horrid nature of backgrounds; 3.Time and toes; ganders and ghastly waters of seclusion; 4. Rains and simpatico curious frogs; 5.Fragile embraces) which try to identify both the technical and emotional musical roots and influences of the band as well as the living metaphorical space that the band managed to create and constantly supply with unknown effusive streams of fertility, inside the “genetic code” of the fabulously-creative Swedish metal scene.

Summing up the year of 2012

 

So, 2012 is coming to a close and it would be nice if you tell us about the results of the outgoing year…

- One worthy metal lady once said in the interview, that 'It's better to regret something you have done than to regret something you haven't done." Now it's the end of the year, the end of the world (at least it was promised), so it's sort of time to sum up. Therefore the question is: Is there something the band haven't done that would be worth regret or something that would be great to be done, but for some reason it wasn't?

-Man, this question really needs a long night filled with vodka to be answered. Really. There are naturally things which could have been but wasnґt or things that was that shouldnґt have been… I honestly feel that this question involves too many aspects to be answered in this form.

- How band members saw themselves in the future as teenagers? Who wanted to become? Did your dreams come true? Is there a slight taste of disappointment?

-How the others saw themselves I cant say anything about really. But as for myself, I never expected that much so I cant say Im disappointed. The benefit of having low expectations, you know ;) And life isnґt over so lets not give up just yet. Concerning the music side of life more specifically, I think we might have, at times at least, had hopes to reach further. But its all a matter of perspective I guess. And we shouldnґt complain, many dear memories and experiences have come out of this, and itґs quite a major part of our identities I would say. You know, itґs 21 fuckin years together come this autumn.
