Description
the inspiration to write this song came from listening to Andrew7102's experimental piece No.10. using his fascinating and unnerving sounds as the backdrop, i set off to write a rock song. as things progressed i had the good fortune of getting one of my favorite musicians, Les Kloo, involved, whose fine contributions should be obvious to anyone who has enjoyed his work on this site.

we hope you like the tune. the lyrics are based loosely on a recurring experience i had with a succubus-like entity over a period of several years. i think she's gone for good now.

Lyrics
i can't see you, can't hear you.
but i know you are right here.
its become clear you are off.

now when the lights turn down you turn up.
and when the fear begins to rise you turn on.

have you come to tell me
all of your dark secrets?
picked the locks of my head
for a place to keep them.

for a place to keep them.

ha ha.
I got mine. Cool ambiance, throbbing bass, slick drums, dark disguised vocals and an overall polish to the production that has got to me. A succubus eh! Love the samples.
The song is so intriguing, with many depths. Original ideas here guys. I can hear the reg at work with his skills. Top lad!
Yeah, Steve. 2.50 mark is haunting an apparition in deed. I know you are a perfectionist and respect you for it, I think being in your creative chair is a real challenge for you, but it always pays off.
Keep on keeping on guys.

Fantastic.
From the moment that bass fired up I knew this was going to be something special. Moody and insistent, it never lets go. I started the download before the song reached the end and I don't do that every time. So well done to all who participated and thanks for that download!

eerie enough
to give you chills. sometimes succubi are hard to shake, but when you do, you can be elated by the lack of that extra, unnatural weight. good to hear LK, even if partially these days. all the elements from everybody involved were just right. i'm pretty sure i'll be enjoying this again later...

hard to shake
yes. and it's interesting you described this sort of presence as an unnatural weight, because that is exactly what one experiences. since it left i feel what i like to call a "lightness of being".

appreciate you stopping by sam. like you i've been jonesing for an L_K fix. instead of waiting for it, i went directly to the source. of course, you're right about this being a partial composition from our friend, but i am happy to hear any form of creativity from Les. cheers,

There's something undeniably compelling about your story, and the sparse lyrics and somewhat disguised (as tokai puts it) vocals lend a suitable eeriness to its expression. I really enjoyed working with you on this tune, Steve. I liked it the first time I heard it, and I still do. Fine, carboniferous piece of music. Keep 'em coming.

That photo gives me the heebie-jeebies.

hey d! the pleasure is all on this side of the monitor. i was so flattered by how you accepted and embraced the mood of this song. and then completely floored by how your contributions really brought out and enhanced the potential of this piece. your energy is special and unique as is your talent. i'm so happy we could get together on this one.

speaking of the photo, you owe me a ghost story dude! cheers,

The disquiet that the music evokes is impressive. As is the musicianship and mix. A really strong collaboration that is quite unique. Congrats to all. Regards, Peter.

Where's the movie?
Gotta be a sci-fi series just begging for this creative and somewhat scary track. The vocals are really arresting and quite unlike anything I've ever heard before. Definitely captured my attention so I wanted to listen carefully...and then I did it again. There is something that draws one into the mix. So inventive and unusual. Glad I heard this.

By accident this song was playing
at the same time as one of Egobandit's tunes. Talk about intensely crazy. Now that I've fixed that I can dig what's really happening here. Great track guys - excellent collab - cool vocals. Dig the whole vibe.
