Dream Weapons present: THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG c90

...and the road leads to nowhereis the first line sung in «Blow Your Brains Out», the opening song. But after a handful of seductive folk/pop-tunes followed closely by various southeast-asian grooves and the likes, overlapped by some avant-weirdness & doom-laden baroque - this road has actually lead you to the guillotine (dripping with the memories of the people it had seen) of The Excecutioner's Song

I think of this mix like a road movie in music – a road-horror movie perhaps. Open, adventurous, dreamlike and surreal for the first parts of the trip but true to the genre it takes a darker turn and ends in (bloody) tragedy.
