Compared to previous albums, this time Lesoir have put much more focus on a progressive artistic direction that prioritizes melody over blunt rage. More than ever there is a clear, both experimental as well as ambitious, balance between lyrics, melody, groove and explosive dynamics.
The artfully structured soundscape is also a major contribution in the formation of the precisely defined and multilayered reliefs that translate the lyrical content into the three-dimensional art form. Be it climate change, mankind’s role on this planet or the bloodcurdling story of friend of the band and survivor of the Bataclan terror attack Ferry Zandvliet: Lesoir fuse the beauty of melancholy with a rugged maliciousness of an unforgiving wasteland. The result is music that is as impressive as it is touching.
