Not just songs for the sake of songs, but an entire gothic horror story interwoven between audio intros and the music itself. A dark story reflecting the evil deeds of a desperate man in order to save his 'coffin born' son from death. With the use of necromancy and forbidden black magick the man conjures forth the very gods of death and shadow, and thus makes a ghastly deal. In order to save his son he must take a life for every year his child is to live. The songs take you on a journey thru out the years of this mad mans fall from grace as he murders and kills victim after victim for every year his son is to live.
And as the years pass on - the child becomes something of a grotesquery itself, lurking in shadows, feeding off of the blood of his father's sacrifices, and morbidly playing with the dead. The father must use geometric transfiguring magick to construst a dwelling for his son to live in from the safety of the world. And all the while the boy has become death incarnate itself. The child hideously deformed and existing somewhere between life and death, as a revenant - an undead, whose only companions are the corpses and mummified remains of the dead and the twisted little homunculi his father has created. Once more Rogga proves himself to be a master song writer, and Kam once more steps into the light as a master story teller. With the fantastic addition of master bass player Johan Berglund from the band THIS HAVEN and the intense percussion skills of master Brynjar Helgetun of the band LIKLUKT.
THE GROTESQUERY is born from out of the grave! As well, the fantastic artistic skills of Grand Master Turkka Rantanen. Whose skills ad an entire dark & ominous atmosphere to the outer and inner layers of the album design. Bringing to life the mad scribblings and eccentric writings of Dr. Ward.
And to finish off the insanity, the bands logo itched out and carved out by none other then the great Mark Riddick himself. So prepair yourself to be taken on a ghastly morbid journey of death, doom, insanity, and self destruction! Coming soon on the debut album: "TALES OF THE COFFIN BORN" from - THE GROTESQUERY - !!
