about

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!!

lyrics

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
