THE PORSUIT OF UNHAPPINESS (2021)
"The Pursuit of Unhappiness" es el segundo larga duración para esta one man band italiana en donde podemos encontrar un trabajo de black metal con influencias sinfónicas y con una atmósfera de corte medieval. El álbum da comienzo con un sonidos de teclados, teclados que de alguna manera se mantiene presentes a lo largo de todas las composiciones, sin un peso predominante, quedándose cercano a un black sinfónico por momentos, pero sin llegar del todo a profundizar en esta faceta, aunque gracias también al aporte de elementos electrónicos se va pergeñando una atmósfera que sin renunciar a cierta melodía si que construye un sonido atmosférico de influencias medievales. Los temas rápidamente dan paso, después de unos inicios más lentos, a un arranque de black contundente, con un sonido bastante solido, sustentado tanto en un aporte de batería directo, algo monótono pero por momentos explosivo, que va de la mano de la capas de riffs que se suceden prácticamente sin pausa a lo largo de las composiciones, a todo ello hay unir esos arreglos entre los sinfónico y lo electrónico que van arrastrando el carácter medieval que se le quiere dar al conjunto, pasando también de puntillas por terrenos cercanos al "dungeon synth" impregnado todo de un ambiente de fantasía. Por su parte las voces se presentan graves y agresivas, digamos también que se amoldan perfectamente a plano musical, ejerciendo si cabe una función de contraste con la instrumentación, aportando un tono de oscuridad y frialdad al conjunto. Un álbum que ofrece una atmósfera lograda, con un sonido entre lo melódico y lo sinfónico con un ambientación elaborada. (7,6).



1. This Fog Will Not Dispel 06:54
  Behind this curtain of mist
Voices are calling, and they are calling me
Behind this curtain of mist
Monsters are dancing, and want to dance with me

Surrounded by blinding steam
I struggle to see, I struggle to hear
I’m going to shelter here
Averting this army that is always trying to near

I’m casting this dark spell
As they get closer, spreading their hell
Withstanding here
Hidden in this fog, as they are getting near

I’m casting the spell, and this fog will not dispel
I’m casting the spell, and this fog will not dispel
I’m casting the spell, and this fog will not dispel
I’m casting the spell, and this fog will not dispel
2. The Pursuit of Unhappiness 06:25
All ships are placed All sailors standing on the deck Tailwind is blowing Today we unfurl our sails Towards unfertile wastelands Towards forsaken places Towards unfriendly harbors Towards unpleasant shores We’re sailing away Through sluggish waters We’re sailing away To barren lands Shining wings just made of wax And we fly towards the sun Bold and proud we move the helm Sailing blindly till our end Full of emptiness Join our journey for the pursuit of unhappiness United in loneliness Join our wild dance for the pursuit of unhappiness  
3. Europa 08:05
   Trees were fed by blood
Buildings shaped by wars
We still hear the clash of swords

Deep under the sea
Laid under the ground
Millions of souls met their last dawn

Stone walls of castles
Tower defenses
Did not stop the fight
That is raging eternal

Fences of barbed wire
Treaties and ceasefires
Will not quell the rage
That lies within us

Glorious flags and shining banners
In Europa
Art and poetry, timeless beauties
Built by blood

Ancient kingdoms, old empires
In Europa
Forever united in hate

Endless conflict bringing grief and glory
In Europa till the end of time

Endless conflict bringing grief and glory
In Europa till the end of time
4. Village of the Evil Cult 06:49
The ones who live here
They clawed their eyes out to serve blind

Their ruthless masters

The ones who live here
Gather united for mass rites

To grotesque idols

The ones who live here
They source their water from the same spring

Flooded by poison

The ones who live here
They need no will to shape their own fate

They follow

They won’t cross the border
They won’t dare to climb the walls
That fence off the village
They won’t leave

They won’t cross the border
They won’t dare to climb the walls
That fence off the village
They will not betray the cult

As you get close to this cursed place
Never try to get in
Once you join them in their shadows
They will never let you go
5. The Monastery of Sorrow 08:09
Raining ash Over the monastery of sorrow As it falls It covers all the lands like snow Dreadful road Forever shrouded into darkness Eerie door Forever buried into weeds Evil friars Tirelessly plead abominations Somber monks Solemnly pray the death of all Hideous altar That stands above a dreary choir Mighty towers Deflecting any ray of light Their evil chants spread Landscape turns black Swallowed by deep Darkness  
6. The North Star No Longer Shines 05:32
 Majestic fall of silence
The day the night got darker
Unearthly sudden grimness
Under the black sky

Carried away
By random gusts of wind
Carried away
To no destination

Abrupt demise of meaning
The night she left the expanse
Cargos of hopes and dreams
Reduced to ashes

Carried away
By random gusts of wind
Carried away
To no destination

Wandering in a pointless maze
Left alone in hopeless journeys

Too late to turn, too late to fix
Fading candles in the wind

Listen to the sky that cries
As the north star, no longer shines

No longer shines
