ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs on The Boy Who Flew Too Close to the Sun range from the Ministry-esque stylings of Tension... Release to the dark twisted lyrics of Insidious Beauty to the slow marching drum and soaring strings and piano of Outro.

drk.scrt.lv started as my solo project in the mid-90s between stints as a guitarist-for-hire in other people's bands. A number of extremely embarrassing demos are still floating around out there...

After maturing as a songwriter and guitarist (and learning how to program synths), I found Jason and got him to play drums with me. After taking the home recording process as far as we could alone, we hired Mark Pistel of Consolidated/Meat Beat Manifesto to help us put together a solid album.

The Boy Who Flew Too Close to the Sun captures a moment in our history, and I'm proud of it, especially some of the guitar work. Since then we've brought Finn (bass/guitar/keys/programming/vocals) into the fold and we're finding new energy. Hopefully we'll have another album, soon.

Take a listen. And drop me a line if you want. I'd love to hear what you think.

Worth it
Reviews are kind of redundant here, as all the tracks on this CD are sampled - why try to describe it when you can just hear it and decide for yourself? The fact that all the tracks ARE sampled is already cool on its own - most artists on CD Baby only sample four tracks, leaving you to guess about the others, but these guys go farther, which speaks well for their confidence and openness. Their website even had the vocalist/guitarist's AIM username, and he's actually a pretty friendly guy.

Anyway, if you're into goth or industrial music, this CD belongs in your collection, simple as that. Like Triprocket and Celldweller and Alpha Conspiracy before it, I already know that I'm going to listen to this one over and over until I'm finally sick of it. This album is a rarity in that I actually enjoyed almost every track - you know how it is, even a lot of good albums have lackluster songs that you always skip past to get to the great ones. This is one of the few I can just leave playing without touching it, because it's all worthwhile. The first track is the only one I didn't care THAT much for (I'm not a huge fan of lyrics that are just one word chanted over and over), but even that one's listenable, and I can forgive it (as well as the not-terribly-inspired cover art) in the face of eleven other perfectly enjoyable tracks. Overall, it's a kick ass effort, especially for a debut album, and I definitely want to hear more.
