Jordan Vauvert stroszek, c'est selon c. lui-même "de la musique de vieux pour les vieux" et sound graveyard bound ne le démentira mas. ce troisième album croise néo-folk avec le rock et a plus de chair que les deux autres : la guitare électrique s'affirme et des solos sont à profusion. malgré tout, la chair est frappé par ce naufrage qu'est la vieillesse et le moindre mouvement fait mal. c. est vivant, on l'entend respirer et déglutir, mais son chant se propage en échos, comme s'il avait un pied dans la tombe. Favorite track: shipwreck.

Gibbs This record is more laid-back than my usual music but I like the emotion in this. Slow, with whispered vocals and some strong metal parts.

wont you come down by the sleeping hours ain't no place for he who fell I bet my life this sound will take me to the end I deny my world no sound will bring me back to life again stars grow cold nothing out the window something to do never to... I bet my life this sound will take me to the end I deny my world no sound will bring me back to life again black tea and candlelight house by the river playing giutar to hide I bet my life, I deny my world I lay on my back alone there's some way back from here I tried to stand alone twice I tried and twice I failed
shipwreck 05:11
no one but black dogs by my side I ve lost my hope down to another world deeper and deeper try to kill me once again ghost train ride to the dark side of this town everytime it rains, I'm never coming home deeper and deeper try to kill me once again too late to remember my name hold your tongue negative, dumb, something to learn alone by the hillside I am beside myself I am besde someone else alone by the hillside, negative, dumb crush upon you exsistence hide behind your emptiness slip inside my empty grave slip inside my empty grave
wake the ghost, crash the car seen thru my left eye, I cross the line stars gone black, everything's gone seen thru my left eye, I cross the line, break and fall I fall to crawl I break and fall, you dare to believe this never felt a wind so cold, never felt so cold inside I close my eyes for a while you dare to believe this
leftover 04:41
nothing's worth trying, I was never young top of the hill, and still's not right bottom of the world, awake in the night rivers dont flow, took my last chance top of the hill, and still's not right bottom of the world, awake in the night I won't have no rest, got my crows to feed took my last chance, it was my last time what I'd need in my grave, a glimpse of life that was
self-closure 04:39
no one else is here no one believes anymore death of what once was inside me is gonna blister and burn don't think too much about it just take me down with you I stumble and I fall death comes around slowly death is a state of mind regret, now gone
adrift 04:45
fall asleep on the stairs better run before I smile dead weight, sun's gone all the gates are closed I am close enough to be the guardian walk through the winter don't you even bother old and rotten, grey, forgotten don't you even bother I tried to hide my face this old empty house I know so well this old empty house, a gate to hell fall asleep on the stairs better run before I smile dead weight, sun's gone all the gates are closed all the gates are closed feeling so new
Lost again in a thought, moments unsought built a wall to the world.. Countryside flying by pins of guilt to my heart.. Guarded in subtleties, flame to feed, down the lane, ambling.. Certainly gonna ask you and me why we believed this mess Know my fragility look upon certain death, be away nevermore, no regret shall bear my last breath It's ever more the strange as the back of the landscape turns to gray.. And it's overall the same as the last of the atmosphere burns away.. A dark room's sentiment, not far from where I bent Just to watch the time pass in a wine glass, motionless I wonder where it went That thing was Providence Tears are the afterlife of all the breath I spent. Our world once felt so new We got the greatest views Oh, but fuck it now, fuck it then, burn it down.. Doesn't matter in the End..
crows 05:26
mourn and walk the street nothing else I could be ashes below the ground from the day I was born I do blame all this pain got to repeat after me step into the dark my best time has gone turn off the light just one more bite nothing's straight on a mind so old and out of shape nothing to keep with me I wonder where I should be forever drenched in gloom I am sick of this room


Picking up where they left off on 2009's 'life failures made music', the Italian three-piece headed by Claudio Alcara (also guitarist of famous black metal band Frostmoon Eclipse) makes their Hypnotic Dirge Records debut with the new album 'sound graveyard bound' Mixing various influences including Tom Waits, and Johnny Cash, Stroszek is certainly not a typical band you'd expect to hear from someone coming from a black metal background. Instead, Stroszek is often described by its frontman as "old music for old people" but could also be described as melancholic acoustic rock with influences from american folk music and (real) country music. However, interlaced among the sombre mood and melancholy, there are also uplifting guitar solos, intricate and powerful guitar work, and a truly relaxing atmosphere.
Combining a bleak depression with absolutely beautiful melodies to drift away to, Stroszek is a project to enjoy during moments of introspection and quiet evenings. The album also includes a cover of Mike Johnson's track 'If the world hadn't gone insane' as well as the beautiful female vocals of 'Nat' on the track 'Spirits Dwell.' Absolutely recommended!!
