Sometimes people live until they die and others live to die
How it sounds
Like the funeral music of a death metal musician.
It is basically a mix of death metal with doom metal, slow and melodic, but with growling vocals and not very optimistic lyrics.
Basically, it has no optimistic lyrics.
Holding some characteristics of death, such as a double boot at a much slower pace and with a lot of musical depth on the verge of progressive.
This with the addition of keys and other strings such as the cello.
Why listen to it
For the depth and the high quality of compositions, but also for the wonderful melodies.
Iiiiiiiiii don’tttttttttt want to dieeeeeeeee yet!!! And because you want more speed and more optimism in the lyrics.
