LAZARE

Stéphane Gallay Avec quatre pistes et moins de dix-huit minutes, Lazare est un album qui se démarque par son intensité; c’est un véritable expresso rock. Il y a une énorme tension dans cet album, tension qui monte avec « Porcelain » et ses ambiances électro et qui « explose » dans le très bref – et très insupportable – « Inferno », fait de distorsions et de hurlements. Le final « Far », très brut de décoffrage, conclut l’album. Favorite track: Porcelain.

about

Driven by a sense of urgency and contrary to their first record, « Sleepwalker », WOLVE desired to produce an EP as spontaneously as possible :

Mainly recorded live to capture the band's energy, this led to a rawer and more organic sound.

« LAZARE » touches on themes such as resilience, duality, anger, ego… through a soundscape recalling a state of limbo, alternating aerial and brutal passages, making the music evoke a shamanic trance.

"Presque un négatif de leur album de 2014… LAZARE vous prendra aux tripes et vous surprendra" neoprog.eu

"Not Only have they released one of the best records of the year, but have also been able to step up their game as musicians and to express themselves in the most genuine and direct way." progressivemusicplanet.com

Track Name: Lazare
Uncontainable reaction
Breaking with the typical
Irresistible attraction
We’re animal chemical

Uniform dissolution
Defying the mystical
Prison of my own construction
Animal mechanical

I saw the pieces fall apart
I saw them in another way
I knew the ending from the start
I know it all but I want you to stay

Let it go
Let it swing over the border
Leveeing your ocean
Carrying what we could have been

Pushing, crawling
Destroy what’s been hurting
Keep us from our guilt

Scarring, falling
The devil keeps grinning
Keep us from our guilt

Let it swing over the border
Leveeing your ocean
Carrying our hope

Gravity deceived me

Far away, far away a child of clay
Far away, far away we slip away
Far away far away…
Track Name: Porcelain
The road that I drive is paved with silent cages
The sun is the same but I can feel the changes
Close the shutters, keep us from the dust

Anyone else could take me to the border
There’s no blindness, they say there’s no danger
Nobody else could save you from yourself

Don’t you break it off ?

Speaking in tongues, you’re back now where you started
Oh they could say, the devil’s broken hearted
Nobody else could save us from ourselves
Track Name: Inferno
We crossed the border
We crossed the line
No more anger
And no more lies

I will break you free
You’ll feed the jackals

I won’t bend to your will
Your gaze misleads
and your face just faking it
Track Name: Far
Devil sings a lullaby
With muzzled lips and blinking eyes
Of souls dancing on a wire
A circle sustained by fire
Whip the man with the crowned head
Distorted words have been spread
Now that we have come this far
Mirror show me what we are

I’ll be the same
If it makes you ok
You got something I need
All that is real

I hear the warning
The thunder rumbling
Tell me this could be
Tell me this could be the end

If I could walk the winding trails
to lose you and run away
There’s a place where no one’s been
Where I end, where you begin

Are you listening ?
Anywhere you go
The voices that you hear
The choices that you fear

Though you think you know me
I won’t keep you safe

Roads we have crossed
Pictures that we’ve lost
Far beyond the bend
Where we descend

I hear them singing
The sound of the wind
In the summer breeze
Tell me you could be the one

I saw the circle scattered down
I saw the circle scattered down…
