The Kovenant - Animatronic

Perhaps not the happiest song out there but one that deserves a good play nevertheless, if only to open the history book and listen to how people found ways to express and experience anger at the end of the 20th century. This tune can be safely labeled “industrial dark symphonic metal”. Beside the staple metal instruments, we’re treated to a diverse side-dish of keyboarding while Sarah’s reverbed vocals contrast Nagash’s angry growls. And beware, the lyrics are even darker than the song:

“Get down on your knees and feed the illusion
Get down on your knees and prolong the delusion
Superstition is the religion of the feeble mind
Liberty and justice, the illusions of mankind

A dogmatic expression in every direction
There is no redemption in divine intervention
The world is a disease that cannot be cured
The truth is a voice that cannot be heard

Jihad, the twisted hands of faith
Jihad, in the name of hate
Jihad, the twisted hands of faith
Jihad, in the name of hate

Hate is the solution to life’s evolution
Love is a high that you cannot sustain
For each age is a dream that is dying
And freedom is a whore that we love to adore”
