THE ZORNHEIM SLEEP EXPERIMENT (2021)
Segundo larga duración para estás banda sueca donde podemos encontrar al ex-Marduk Zorn, un nuevo trabajo que llega cargado de elementos sinfónicos y llevando su propuesta a terrenos más alejados del black al uso que en su primer y bien acogido "Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns" de 2017. El álbum encierra un historia conceptual relacionada con los experimentos derivadas de la privación de sueño y sus consecuencias psicológicas y hay que decir que el álbum logra transmitir una atmósfera cargada, oscura y por que no también demencial. Una mezcla de sonidos black sinfónicos así como otros de procedencia death, llevan el peso del grueso de la composiciones, ofreciendo un equilibrio entre contundencia en cuanto a blast-beast así como sabiendo rodearlos de riffs que no renuncian a un componente melódico sabiendo trabajar los ritmos en evolución constante entre los más directos y rápidos con otros en donde se van colando algunos medios tiempos. Las voces resultan de lo más variado sabiendo mantener un componte entre el death melódico y el black sinfónico al tiempo que se nutren de secciones más corales o otras secciones de voces limpias. Hay que decir que elementos de su música pueden ofrecer estructuras que recuerdan al heavy clásico o al gótico con un trabajo excelente en todo lo que tenga que ver con los riffs en donde se han empleado a fondo tanto en las partes más directas como en las secciones más limpias. El álbum es todo un variado registro de diferentes estilos, desde lo más extremos hasta otros más accesibles, acoplados perfectamente y logrando ofrecer una ambientación muy lograda. (8,2)



1. Corpus Vile 05:26
  Immolo in nomine Medicus
Abyssus abyssum invocat
Aegri somnia
Corpus vile

[Dr. Bettelheim:]
“Welcome to the depths below,
Settle in to your new home,
Such sights to show you…
Bring them in, let’s begin, seal the door!
No sleep! You’ll remain awake;
That’s the aim of the experiment
Endure this for 30 days
You will have prevailed”

[Dr. Bettelheim]
“Gas mask”
[Z-SES-06]
“Why does it keep us awake?”
[Dr. Bettelheim]
“Confined”
[Z-SES-06]
”30 days here within?
[Dr. Bettelheim]
Yes
[Z-SES-06]
“Take me back to my cell!”
[Dr. Bettelheim]
“Silence! You will obey!”
“Sleepless”
[Z-SES-06]
”Nightmares will fade?”
[Dr. Bettelheim]
Dreams
[Z-SES-06]
I will see what’s beyond!
[Dr. Bettelheim]
My Subjects...
[Z-SES-06]
I'm not ready to be...
[Both]
In Zornheim’s Sleep Experiment!

Immolo in nomine Medicus
Abyssus abyssum invocat
Aegri somnia
Corpus vile

[Dr. Bettelheim]
”Time can be friend or foe,
No one cares, your existence? Unknown!
Get to know your cellmates...
Gas mask on, strap them tight, now inhale!
Feel the gas as it stimulates,
You crave for sleep but cannot satiate!
Welcome to these depths below;
The eternal freak show”

Guitar solo: Both

Immolo in nomine Medicus
Abyssus abyssum invocat
Aegri somnia
Corpus vile

[Z-SES-06]
To live in madness or in pain?
To sleep, perchance to dream in restraints.
2. An Evil Within 00:25  
3. Dead Silence 05:11
  [Z-SES-02:]
Imprisoned here, no chance to see
the light of day, in this doctor’s play
abandoned here to fade away!
And no one speaks or dares to move -
Frightened by what it might do,
and the need to sleep removed
An evil within, deep in my mind, slowly awakes, no!

[Z-SES-02:]
Silence, dead silence, I don’t want to die
Silence, violence - sleep denied
[Gutzmann:]
Silent, so silent, why are you so damned silent?
Anxious and silent, what’s growing inside?

[Z-SES-02:]
I don’t want to die
Fear rules my mind
A fate undefined
Awaits us

(Verse: 2)
[Z-SES-02]
Sirens wail, we must inhale,
from this cursed gas again,
First breath sets my lungs ablaze.
Gasping! Force a second breath,
The stimulant takes full affect,
The third breath brings euphoric highs
Evil within, aroused by, the gas, emotions inside - die!

[Z-SES-02:]
Silence, dead silence, I don’t want to die
Silence, violence - sleep denied

[Gutzmann:]
Silent, so silent, why are you so damned silent?
Anxious and silent, what’s growing inside?

[Z-SES-02:]
I don’t want to die
Fear rules my mind
A fate undefined
Awaits us

[Z-SES-02:]
“There is no way in hell that I’m getting out of here!”

(At “The Observatory”)
[Gutzmann:]
“Doctor, the gas has been dispensed.”
[Doctor Bettelheim:]
“Splendid, let us see if they remain awake.”

[Z-SES-02:]
Panic rise inside, hits me like a tide, no!
Lack of sleep, drains the essence of my soul
Panic rise inside, hits me like a tide, no!
Nightmares are real

[Solo: Zorn]

[Z-SES-02]
Silence, dead silence, i don't want to die
Silence, dead silence - sleep denied
I don’t want to die
Fear rules my mind
A fate undefined
Awaits us
Dead silence
4. Keep the Devil Away 04:18
  [Z-SES-04 (inmate):]
He is the one tormenting
That tries to break my soul
Caught in a circle of doubt
Where trust cannot be found

He is the one that’s absent;
watching the weaker minds
My eyes beg for compassion
Which his minion denies

[Gutzmann (Doctor):]
Don’t close your eyes
[Z-SES-04:]
Anxiety is rampant here
[Gutzmann:]
I’m right here
[Z-SES-04:]
Whispers echo through the dark
[Gutzmann:]
Don’t turn on me
[Z-SES-04:]
Existence in a permanent state
[Gutzmann:]
You cannot hide
[Z-SES-04:]
Of Fear!

[Z-SES-04:]
He is the one that’s leading
This godforsaken test!
You can ignore his power
And free us from this hell!

[Gutzmann:]
Don’t close your eyes
[Z-SES-04:]
Anxiety is rampant here
[Gutzmann:]
I’m right here
[Z-SES-04:]
Whispers echo through the dark
[Gutzmann:]
Don’t turn on me
[Z-SES-04:]
Existence in a permanent state
[Gutzmann:]
You cannot hide
[Z-SES-04:]
Of Fear!

[Z-SES-04:]
“Keep the devil away, keep him astray - Hear us pray
Hear what I say!”

”It is now or never
This is your last chance
I hear him come,
He's at the door
The devil is back!”
5. Slumber Comes in Time 05:43
[Dr Bettelheim:] “No sounds, just whispers! That is the only thing I hear I cannot get a word from them, Can you?” [Dr Gutzmann:] A look with bloodshot eyes See I come with open arms Now show your tortured lives Tales of where you now reside All souls deserves their rest Your sweet slumber comes in time But your sleepless state Holds the knowledge that we seek! [Dr Bettelheim:] “Just muttering words None of this makes sense to me The test is at stake! It cannot be! All my research jeopardized By guinea pigs Noooo... It... cannot be! All my research wasted by these worthless guinea pigs” [Dr Gutzmann:] ”A look with bloodshot eyes See I come with open arms Now show your tortured lives Tales of where you now reside All souls deserves their rest Your sweet slumber comes in time But your sleepless state Holds the knowledge that we seek!” [Dr Gutzmann:] Is agony why you silently stare and hold your tongue So, did your spirit die so your words remained your own? Please answer and give me a sign of life O ack, du kalla barm ner i Zornheims djupa famn Dit drömmar aldrig når, där ingen vila nånsin fås Där finnes intet ljus, endast mörker råder här I kvävande brus, fast i bojor av misär O ack, du kalla barm djupt i Zornheims smittohärd Ett sköte så sjukt, själen glömd o tär  
6. Black Nine 04:00
[Dr Bettleheim:] Few days passed, filled with silence, and then it started Endless screams, never ending, so cold that: It cuts through the soul, the sounds from the hole, this is now spiralling out of control! Bound to see; there’s nothing I can do [Dr Bettleheim:] Black - Nine Behold there's something changing Black - Nine My subjects might now prove my theory [Dr Bettleheim:] Restless ghoul! Running ‘round, so filled with terror The others still... act oblivious, and calm! Now their wails subside, to a whimper and cry, as two inmates lash out at all books in sight. Page by page, are torn out from each tome [Dr Bettleheim:] Black - Nine Behold there's something changing Black - Nine My subjects might now prove my theory [Incubus:] Hide - Can’t let them see Hide from them - We want to be free At Zornheim - Rise from the knee eternal black dawning; from night terror’s seed Hide - Can’t let them see Hide from them- We want to be free At Zornheim - Go now my puppets, into the eternal night’s dawning; commence killing-spree [Dr Bettleheim:] Blind - They’ve obscured our view How! - the pages from the books; with excreta they’ve stuck to the glass - We hear their wheezing breaths Still - it’s far too quiet: Gas them some more Just like before If that doesn’t work, then just break down the door  
7. The Veiling of Bettelheim’s Eye 01:18  
8. The Revelation 03:40
  [Chant:]
“Stay away
Don’t want to be free!”

[Dr Bettleheim:]
We got inside; horrid sights, and the stench of rotten decay
No one slept, angels wept, epitomising dismay
Dismembered limbs, from flesh torn, lidless eyes watch with scorn
Food untouched, and yet they’ve fed, and wrote their thoughts out in red

[Chant:]
“Stay away
Don’t want to be free!”

Solo/Theme: Zorn

[Chant:]
“We no longer wish to be free
Stay away; begone!”

[Dr Bettleheim:]
The realisation, of what they’d done; they’d devoured themselves
The sight of organs, and muscle fibers, even rib-cages exposed
“Turn off the gas”, withdrawal’s instant, a frenzied craving begins
They went berserk, deprived assailants, demand it be turned back on
9. Keep Cutting 04:53
  [Bettelheim:]
“Try sedate, and calm them down, no bloodshed, I need them!
We must act, don’t let them die! Prepare surgery, now hurry!”
[Bachmann:]
“Their bodies won’t get pacified, by doses that are qualified”
[Bettelheim:]
“Restrain them, but gently”
[Bachmann:]
“All subjects are in restraints; we’ll break their spirits, cuffed in chains”
[Bettelheim:]
“I said gently, you fool!”

[Gutzmann:]
“They are prepped for surgery.”

[Z-SES-05:]
Carving, slashing; slaughter art
Keep cutting
Stab me, slash me - tear apart
Keep cutting... me

[Bettelheim:]
Drag those wasted subjects out, they are rejects, destroy them!
Take the 3 remaining lives, keep them conscious, no matter what.
[Bachmann:]
Still they can’t be pacified, by doses that are qualified
[Bettelheim:]
They enjoy this! How can this be?
[Bachmann:]
They revel in their agony, no pain but joyous lunacy.
[Bettelheim:]
Unexpected, Get them back in the gas.

[Gutzmann:]
“One lost consciousness, died instantly”

[Z-SES-05:]
Carving, slashing; slaughter art
Keep cutting
Stab me, slash me - tear apart
Keep cutting... me
Slash me, tear apart
Keep cutting
I am slaughter art
Keep cutting... me

Theme/Solo: Zorn

[Z-SES-02:]
“Keep cutting… me!
I need it, I crave it,
Must inhale the gas“
