MessageSujet: Lifelover (Sweden)   Dim 11 Sep - 23:05



Lifelover was formed in June 2005 by B and ( ) in Stockholm, Sweden. A demo called Promo 2005 was recorded the same month, it contained two tracks of improvised misery, but it was never officially released. In early 2006, Lifelover started to write material without any boundaries and it was all written from what came to mind at the time, and eventuality the band had songs for a complete album, and decided to try to do something with it..

The recording of Pulver began in April 2006, LR and 1853 where recruited to the band. The album was finished in May 2006. After about two month Pulver was released on CD by Goatowarex on 25 July 2006. The LP-version was released by Northern Sky Productions some months later. The response to the album, both in a positive and negative way was pretty massive and nothing that Lifelover had ever expected.

Some time passed and new material started to take form and the recording of Erotik began, and H. joined the crew. Erotik was released by Total Holocaust Records on 24 February 2007. The LP-version was released in co-operation between Blut & Eisen and Eternity Records.

In late 2007, Lifelover signed a contract with and recruited two new members, Fix on bass and S on drums for upcoming live shows. LR left the band in April 2008. Lifelover performed a miserable first live show at Harry B James in Stockholm, 28 September 2008.

Lifelover's third album Konkurs was released by Avantgarde Music, 10 October 2008. The limited edition of the album contained among other things the Promo from 2005, on CD format.

Osmose Productions re-issued both Pulver and Erotik on CD in 2009, Erotik was re-issued on 21 January 2009 and Pulver on 7 May. Member 1853 and live drummer S. both left the band in May 2009. Already some days later Lifelover was joined by a new drummer called Non.

Lifelover finished the work on their new MCD called Dekadens in July, 2009. It was released 8 October by Osmose Productions on CD. The MLP version will be out through Elitmusik within some month. Dekadens features seven tracks, and is the first Lifelover release with real drums, handled by the newest member Non.

From 1 October 4 October 2009, Lifelover performed the PulverCities mini-tour in Germany and the Netherlands. Four gigs where performed. It was both a miserable and good experience, and was something this band truly needed. On 27 November 2009 Lifelover performed at Helvete Metal Club in Germany, and on 28 November at Garage in Oslo, Norway.

On 5 January 2010, 1853 re-joined the line-up, after having taken a break from Lifelover. On 19 January, Non left the band.

On 14 February 2011, Lifelover released their fourth album called Sjukdom.

On 10 September 2011, the band reported through their Facebook page that band member B died the previous day, stating, "We are very sad to report that yesterday our bandmate and brother B has passed away. The concerts today and tomorrow are still to be performed, but in a different form in his honor. This information is valid and in its extreme sadness true. A final statement with further details is to come."

Depressive Black'n roll.
This is a real BO for your boring depressing daily grind.
You don't even need to understand the swedish lyrics.

Others must listen song from them :

- I Love (To Hurt) You
- Narcotic Devotion
- Bitter Reflektion
- Sweet Illness of Mine
- Museum of Past Affections
- M/S Salmonella
- Stockholm
- Luguber Framtid
- Nackskott

I listened to Konkurs for the first time last night, and loved it. The vocals are quite different than anything else I have heard, they carry much more pain and strain then the typical shrill vocals of this style. Musically they were very interesting as well..

i think the swedish language really adds to the melancholic atmosphere of their music.

I was specificly talking about the lyrics hard to understand, not about the voice as an instrument.

"Stängt p.g.a Semester" has some truly incredible lyrics... (Here they are, translated:)

We're going on holiday, living life,
Leave everyday
And the gray thing behind us
Away from the city, its exhaust
And hordes of people
To finally end up
At some fastidious destination
There, ironically, the same
Society is

But here, we can at least
Forget all the obligations,
Be part of the social diversity
And rejoice to exist;
It is, after all this
Everything is based on

Who needs to enjoy himself
When we can laugh at others?
Who needs to have a purpose
When it is watered down and lacks meaning?
Who needs to say "I'm fine"
When the surface is still the key?

Well, there it's so good here back in the car

We will all laugh and dance out
In the tepid summer night
Last chance to be now,
Who can rely on tomorrow
When we are present?

Before I went, I left the bombs,
Where you feel most secure
I will not return

They are officially disbanded.

Fuck, they were my favorite band and I never got a chance to see them live.

Their last gig was so emotional... Here are few videos from that gig

Few words from band members about B:

And a person who recorded most of the concert (God bless him) uploaded it here:

For the moment I rather considered this status has a fake, since nothing "official" has been announced Wink

When you randomly search the information on the internet, you can see that everybody want to know if they disband or not, hoping not of course.

Well, I've really gotten into them over the past week, and now am preparing to branch out into some of the other groups Kim and B worked with. Anyone have any opinions on which are the best to start with?

Kim is involved in few Depressive Black Metal bands like Hypothermia, Kyla and Life Is Pain and B played in Black Metal bands like Ondskapt, IXXI and Woundism.
Depends. If you're into slower, colder and worse produced you should go with Kim's bands but if you like clean production and Black Metal without compromises than you should go with B's bands. Smile

I chose to start with Life is Pain, and I really liked it. His raw, pained vocals sounded great on the three tracks, although it is a shame that there are ONLY three from that band.

I am very interested in how his new project, Horns Emerging, will sound (if he is still planning on doing it, supposedly the album was supposed to come out this year, yet I can't find anything about it). It seems like it shall be heading in a very different direction then anything he has previously done.

Audrey Sylvain is not the same Audrey as Les Discrets man Exclamation

And yes:

Horns Emerging is a new sphere of activity of multi-instrumentalist Kim Carlsson, one of the masterminds behind the infamous Lifelover, and began as a project with Amesoeurs vocalist Audrey Sylvain. A purely spiritual work, Carlsson's Horns Emerging seeks to transcend both musical and aesthetic boundaries, focusing the innermost energies of the soul into cascades of melancholic, oft-beautiful soun...d. "The concept is of channeling dormant energies from beyond the within, devotion and submission towards negativity within and around you," Carlsson explains further, "embracing its will and letting it enforce and amplify your own." For a musical reference, "even those familiar with what I create won't know what to expect," the mainman contends. "It's all a matter of perspective, and depending on how they listen, they will hear anything from black metal to post-rock, indie-rock to pop.

Sounds really promising.
I will not have (too) high expectations about it like I had with Old Silver Key

If it features Audrey Sylvain, that makes it sound even better! Surprised

And yes, everyone mixes up Audrey Sylain and Audrey Hadorn. Of course, then there was the time that some guy wrote "Audrey Hardon"... xD
