Dan Linden Here it is, my first comment on BC… ladies and gentlemen, my 4th full listen of Syzygys just ended and I’d like to boldly state that I found my Album of the Year. After previously listening countless times to Succumb (the ‘preorder track’) it totally felt like ‘Christmas present!’, when that release note popped up today. So yeah, not even holding that gorgeous edition in my hands yet – but judged from the photos so far it’s an ideal companion. Finally: much kudos to Mrs. Kurhan – amazing cover art! Favorite track: Gloaming Meadow.

Galloped off the misty planet Into the fire Run along Stand still We gaze into the greeter’s eyes Galloped off the windy forest Into the wild Run along

Red Trough 04:59
Bleeding by the riverbed Her shoulders glistening Kneeling where the river ends Barely breathing She took her blade To never return She kissed them goodbye To never kiss them again she made her way To kill all their men She dashed even more In every turn Drink drink from the trough Her horses are drinking her blood Drain drain what’s in the trough

These are what’s left of All of us, after the blizzard Throw in the fire Throw all there is This is what’s left of, It’s all we have after the blizzard Throw in the fire The snow has wounded all the birds, The snow will heal again There’s more to what the night has brought And the day will once return* This is it now It’s all that’s left after the blizzard Three little shades Throw it all in Breathe all that’s left of What we were Before it shattered Breathe what we have Take it all in The snow has wounded all the birds, The snow will heal again There’s more to what the night has brought And the day will once return* Shadows roam in here, Shadows

Soon they’ll be upon the gates Soon there’ll be no moon Slaughtered on their horses Flailing Soon they’ll be among the crates They’ll burn the sleeping groom Taking all the children Fading Disappearing What if a lifetime isn’t worth it What if the meanwhile never ends What if the night-fall isn’t leaving What if the ravens don’t return What if a lifetime isn’t worth it What if the ravens don’t return What if the meantime is deceiving Blood blackens in our veins* Soon they’ll be among the gates Soon there’ll be no moon Soon they’ll be among the crates They’ll burn the sleepy groom

about

UR009

9T Antiope's main focus is on experimental music, using layers of acoustic instruments and electronics, combined with mesmerizing vocals and lyrics.
From tiny bits to huge landscapes - the narrations of an alien world and its inhabitants which 9T Antiope have envisioned put their listeners in a shivering trance.
„Syzygys" conveys elegant modernity with a cold tribal touch.
