    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

Lust Beyond Flesh

As I stand behind the gates
All other creatures succumb to pain
And I strain to bring to mortal life
These unholy dreams:
Our fathers legacy abandoned
In the blood-stained fields

What we find behind the Veil
Could not have been expected
Fulfullment beyond desire,
Lust beyond flesh

The fight will bring me to my grave
But a hallowed seat I've earned
My lips will taste the sweet reward
Honey and fermented juices

What we find behind the Veil
Could not have been expected
Fulfullment beyond desire,
Lust beyond flesh
Shining will: the carnal consummation
Of the holy fires kiss

Entrancing world of blood and heat
New visions upon which our eyes feast
New signs, open minds transcending pleasures pain
No craven whispers revealing strain
No more forgotten meaning

What we find behind the Veil
Could not have been expected
Fulfullment beyond desire,
Lust beyond flesh

Nocturnal lives in hidden places
Burn brighter than those who claim the light
They cannot die for they dare not be born
Love lost, love scorned, love stabbed in the back
DAATH remains
