From a Distant Land

Morts thumbnail
Morts German industrial metal with a very full sound - very dramatic, both musically and lyrically! It kinda seems a little scatterbrained and deranged (a deliberate effect, I would assume), like several things are happening at once, but it's all held together cohesively. The singer's English is heavily accented, but that only helps enhance the theme and atmosphere being created. Favorite track: Rorschach.

Ladies and Gentlemen! So let us raise the curtain now, Welcome here in the show, We're here to entertain you all, Without any self-respect! And i sing for the rich, i sing for the poor, i sing for the beggar and the well-doer! I dance with fools, i dance with the wise, i dance for myself from time to time. I cry when i hear about cruel, i cry when kids are oppressed in school… …but when the news is over, i dont even remember, because i know, it will be gone in a flow, our life is like smoke, it's all a big joke! So let us raise the curtain now, Welcome here in the show, We're here to entertain you all, Without any self-respect!

Circus of Fools Tübingen, Germany

Circus of Fools is, by all means, a live band: a bombastic show, elaborate costumes, a charismatic front-man, a female singer with an extremely versatile voice and congenial musicians provide an inherently consistent picture between moral and madness. These anarchistic clowns are the filthy reflection of our society and an incredibly energetic band. ... more
