about

Mentions:

Lanterns is featured on Episode 12: Lone Frequencies radio in the UK (5/10/17)

Cool post-rocky stuff from Atlanta. Atmospheric with thoughtful lyrics...This recording is a mystery...You're gonna think you've heard this before, but it's richer and more interesting. Subtlety is power. - Adam Harmless, GAD! Zine (10/16/17)

"Glorious Album." - James, Lone Frequencies Ep.29 (10/23/17)

"Appropriate for all times...very layered and textured...not over the top...it's beautifully moody- there is a bit of beauty in the darkness of A Very Loud Death." - Jacob, Lone Frequencies Ep. 29 (10/23/17)

Lanterns is featured on For Those About To Rock Ep. 19 in the UK (12/31/17)

"...what they are is rather cool, emotionally riveting post-metal/progressive rock...the trio provide some powerfully illuminating music...it is as haunting as it is beautiful..." - Pat "Riot" Whitaker, RiffRelevant.com (01/06/18)

"The album is a dark, moody listen that combines primal punk energy with a more nuanced, progressive rock aesthetic." - Brian Lush, RockWired.com (01/17/18)

"...the best way to describe A Very Loud Death’s latest offering is that there is enough dramatic loudness to wake up empathy in a stone-cold psychopath." - Kayla Hutton, imperfectFifth.com (01/30/18)

"it [Lanterns] is an interesting and exciting blend between Post-punk, Noise rock and Alternative rock in ten tracks that incorporate emotional ecstasy and lots of darkness textures. Favorite track: Still Life (Cactus in a Cage)" - Sergio Renteria, Radio Segundo Canal (02/06/18)

"...rock and roll surrealism. There is a deep aura that glows. It comes from the emotions this band emits, an ambiance that is real and otherworldly all in its unique rock presence...The bottom line is that Lanterns is a great album. So, how do you top that?" - Andrew Duncan, Selective Memory Mag (07/10/18)

Track Name: Consumer
Pay me and the burden goes away
a taste of silver will keep the monsters at bay
and it's sure to call and it's sure to feel
as villains point and smiles are enemies

Just let me crawl
just let me breed

You'll feed every time I need
you'll water your paunch with what drips from me
it's a trickle down trickle disease
that's been going around, around for centuries

Just let me crawl
just let me breed

Lay me down
these curtains fall
I need to crown
I need to crawl

I lay my head unto you and rest
I lay my head unto you...
Track Name: Temples
Loan me tonight to pay
the debt my father made
temples are built to bring
this holy vagrancy

let loose the tongue
sermons spun in spades
and mine is the gold
displayed, exchanged
while my head's in the shade

Kneeling and conjuring
new flesh from ash and grain
choking on revelries
fucking to find a name

let loose the tongue
sermons spun in spades
and mine is the gold
displayed, exchanged
while my head's in the shade

cut me open
remove the curtain...
Track Name: Lanterns
Let me illuminate
your breast and your bone
patch your sores up with coldness and shame
swaddle you with shadows

it serves me right, poor I
I must serve you right
and lead you down into night
lead you down into...

Fingers lead the way, I
grin and salivate, I
suffer to unlock the gate, oh
only to grasp and retreat

it serves me right, poor I
I must serve you right
and lead you down into night
lead you down into...

Now you see
your new world
of gnashing teeth

...I will devour you
Track Name: Gluttony
Peel the skin and let it run
let it pour, let it roam
feel the fat as it clots the gums
the eyes and bone

mosquito friends, suck the poisons, suck them dry
suck them away I want to give them to you now
mosquito friends, whatever poisons are within
suck them away

or it's hate
that will roam here
feeding on you
hate
that will roam here
feeding on you
hate that will roam

settle down, accept aplomb
revelations in the moan
call it a stance, call it a home
I'll call it a tomb

mosquito friends, suck the poisons, suck them dry
suck them away I want to give them to you now
mosquito friends, whatever poisons are within, suck them away

or it's hate
that will roam here
feeding on you
hate
that will roam here
feeding on you
hate that will roam
Track Name: The Ease of Absurdity
You've played your hand
now it's time to suffer
the consequence
of my disaster

tra la la la la

I'll cut you first

ha ha

my hearts win out
Track Name: Deserts
Hey...

over and over and over again
you get amazed by the things that you do
over and over and over again
you get amazed

so filter through this ash with me
light the ends of eternity
wash your mouth with gasoline and grind
your tongue's a fuse when it's free

she says all the time
Track Name: The Wild
Let me in
into you
so I may lay
above your hooves, not
a body in reddened sand
twixt wanton quilts with rat'ling hands

Let me claw
into you
don't leave me here
between the sun
and your mood
blood soaked
on this blanket of drugs
choking on your hair
a mattress of bruises
to rest my headache
suffocate my ears

Don't release my soul
and I'll let you have it all
I promise I'll behave
just hold on

If you feel me fight
don't pull away, just hold on
if I scream my song
don't pull away, just hold on
like a vulture tearing at the bone
just hold on
don't release me here

If you let go
confine my parts and hang
me with the salted meat, the cockerel wings
heed me this succoring
of nourishing the passing flies

or let me in
into you
devour me
and I will ease
your blood and soothe
the roiling flood
beneath your crackled jaw
wear your collection of knuckles around my neck
and let the poisons
wither, outstretched
on your fingertips

Don't release my soul
and I'll let you have it all
I promise I'll behave
just hold on...

if you feel me fight, don't pull away
just hold on
if I scream my song, don't pull away
just hold on
like a vulture tearing at the bones
just hold on
don't release me here...

getting so cold
my body is getting old
a thousand chemicals
spring from my lungs and entwine with my tendrils, creeping
loose from the depths of a vision I once called home
the demons I raised in my fire now freely roam here...
Track Name: Circus Mind
Color blue
gut it out
circus mind
all the time...

Lazy day, a body unfolds
cold mercury is chasing the gold
all this alchemy is making me old
while my flesh gets pieced
between your mouth and your bowl

here, taste the whine
oh no, no time
oh no, no time

gut me out
feast away

Pardon me, I've lost my way
across this scenic table display
while your fingers pull
and your knuckles knead
maybe I'll rise
yeah, I'll rise to your teeth

here, taste the whine
oh no, no time
oh no, no time

gut me out
feast away
Track Name: Daughters of Melpomene
Hold my hand through a breeze
that whispers tales of old
where no man, nor disease
can overtake your body's control
and all your will
and all your needs
in the embrace of a song
fall asleep in my truth
rest your weary meat in my calm

float away

all is yours, all is home
all the sands that are twisting in time
make an island in the foam
to a keep where you soul can reside
and I believe, let's believe
there's no other way to lie
eternity in a word
in a world borne in the mind

float away

come to me...
Track Name: Still Life: Cactus in a Cage
What rises in the west
but a flood of red on the wind...

Bathe in the skin,
in the breath of the innocent,
and burn your surroundings
clumsily remove your jewelry
cast off your clothes and your beliefs
and spurn all the voices...

no, I
won't cry this time
I'll keep my cool
no, I
won't die this time
I'll live the fool

face the blood
eat the flood
furiously
bare your teeth
and howl
let it out

no, I
won't cry this time
I'll keep my cool
no, I
won't die this time
I'll live the fool
