    Veil of Thorns - "Lust Beyond Flesh/ Utopia"

    When I first put on this 7" single it was not without some trepidation. I was expecting some awful, talentless, metal band... I was shocked at what I heard. It was (to quote to Love Boat) 'exciting and new' - A kicking electro back-beat and a ravine-deep bass-line belched from the pits of Hell. It's a muddle of styles, taking inspiration from the early Bat cave as much as modern electronics - all mixed around to something different. The production in this single isn't the best, but if it weren't for the fact the lyrics got a little lost, it suits the song just fine. Makes you release just how much a band like London After Midnight rely on production. Utopia opens with a funky 70s bass line and guitar riff - kind off Kiss inspired (?) which is completely unlike the rest of the song - very different. It's really difficult to describe the music of Veil of Thorns - but lovers of raw, earthy gothic rock should love it. Pure filth (which is a good thing!).

    Veil Of Thorns fans will recognize this image from the first edition of Cafe Flesh, their CD debut. This really is emblematic of Emerson's work from this period with bold ink strokes, but conveying a building confidence in structure and motion. The medium of india ink, emphasized during the 1990's because most independent magazines of the time could only print bold black and white has become a very rewarding and challenging way to create.

lyrics

I told you once about the Christ:
Sad dogs, whipped and starved
Towering monuments to insanity
Betraying hidden desire
Among the bones and in the shadows
We stand outside their view
There is no god to choose the few
Lament their confusion

Unable stop knowing else:
Choose between drinking bleach or gasoline
Swallowed whole by a media saviour
Promise not to get any on him
Halucinating vultures sleep near
drowning in their waste, dying in fear
The sodomizing spear brings the serpents kiss
This column of light shall detonate your heart

I see all too clearly the futility
I see the end
I will bleed all the living dead dry
I'll bring the end

Now why should death cause a strain?
Even biting chrome drenched with bloody stain
All the fools, indeed, the liberating rules
Tear asunder all that may bring them life
Crying, bleeding, dancing across the floor
Red black, red black all alone once more
Enjoy the thrill of fear of what's in store
In glory ride, on crimson oceans glide
