More Info

"Wenn die 4AD Platten aus den Achtzigern in die Jetztzeit gebeamt worden wären, dann würden sie wie das hier klingen. Und würde sich Sofia Coppola daran machen, 'Lost In Translation II' zu verfilmen, dann wäre das hier der Soundtrack. Dies ist ein Album, das nur hier und jetzt aufgenommen werden konnte: Es versammelt Black Metal, Shoegaze, Post-Rock und New Wave und verwandelt diese Genres in eine selige Soundlawine. Mories, das verrückte Genie hinter solchen Pseudonymen wie GNAW THEIR TONGUES, ADERLATING, DE MAGIA VERTERUM hat 10.000 Stunden an dieser Musik gearbeitet. Wahrscheinlich sogar zwei Mal. Die Zeit, die man - glaubt man Malcolm Gladwell - braucht, um wirklich gut in etwas zu werden 'And The Light Swallowed Everything' ist der Höhepunkt all dessen, was er in den letzten zehn Jahren getan hat. SEIROM dreht sich um Schönheit und Melancholie. SEIROM geht es um persönlichen Ausdruck ohne innere und äußere Grenzen.
SEIROM brauchen großartige, bombastische Melodien, die durch die Ästhetik von Noise und Black Metal gefiltert werden. Hier treffen Hochzeitsglocken auf Blastbeats. Hinter SEIROM verbergen sicht M.C. De Jong, Mastermind hinter GNAW THEIR TONGUES, ADERLATING und anderen, ein Meilenstein der düsteren Musik. 'And The Light Swallowed Everything' ist das zweite Album von SEIROM nach 1973, das 2012 veröffentlicht wurde. //
If 80s 4AD-records would be transformed to the now they would sound like this. If Sofia Coppola would make Lost In Translation II this would be the soundtrack. This is a record that could only have been made NOW: it incorperates black metal, showgaze, post-rock, new wave and transforms those genres into one blissfull avalanche of sound. Mories, the evil mastermind behind such pseudonyms as Gnaw Their Tongues, Aderlating, De Magia Verterum, has worked the 10.000 hours on his music (probably twice). The time you need to get really good at something according to Malcolm Gladwell. And the light swallowed everything is the culmination of everything he has done in the last 10 years. SEIROM is about ‘beauty’ and melancholy, the more beautiful aspects of life. SEIROM is about personal expression without boundaries, internal or external. SEIROM is about grand bombastic melody filtered through noise and black metal aesthetics. The marriage of wedding bells to blastbeats. About a certain feeling…a longing lost long ago. SEIROM is M.C De Jong, mastermind of Gnaw Their Tongues, ADERLATING and others, a stalwart of bleak and desolate music for many years. SEIROM sees a different side of De Jong’s musical output, an outpouring of glorious light. And the light swallowed everything is Seirom’s 2nd album after 1973, released on Aurora Borealis-label in 2012." [label info]
