about

"Et tu, Yūrei?" is our ninth album and represents our most experimental release to date. We decided to use synth and drum machines to drive the songwriting process this time, with the guitars to back up the raw sounds. The sound of the album leans more towards the alternative/industrial genre but also has a few familiar songs too from our previous albums. The themes explored here look mostly at how any kind of loss can affect our mental and physical health. The title of the album is a mixture of Latin and Japanese (roughly translating 'You too, Spirit?').

We greatly enjoyed making this record, it was different and challenging but also refreshing to do. We hope that you like this release too. As always, we release our albums free digitally, but any kind of donation or purchasing the limited edition CD is massively appreciated and loved.

Track Name: Spirit Me Away
Close all the doors that led you here
Forget whatever you left behind
No one knows you

Do you exist in the world I am in?
Nothing to reach for in the end

They'll never find us

This is where the love will burn out
Trade it in for something that kills
No one wants you

Do you exist in the world I am in?
Nothing to reach for in the end
Take me to the other side
So I can hold you, hold you again
Track Name: Acrobat (ft. C. C. Munster)
I don't think i can describe this feeling
it feels as if i can crash into anything
without a single care in the world
does it matter to anyone else?
i really don't think it does
i waste myself away here
whilst everyone moves ahead
what the fuck went wrong
its a waste of time to think about you
when you have so much planned
am i a part of this?
i guess i never was

Don't look down on me
It's only temporary
Time will only tell
If i only fail

(C. C. Munster)

I should feel like a winner, 10/10 Imma slide in the winter, Oceans in the pop, what is dinner, Every time I reach for gain, there's a splinter, okay, I have problems moving on, RIP grams, feels like its been long, How can I leave when I'm gone, sliding through the day, don't lead anybody on. Act like its fine, act like anytime I could smile, my friends go through enough already, they don't need to cry, every time I see them I feel needles in their eyes. Piercing through their brains, piercing through my thoughts, throw me to the ground and then pin me to the wall. I just wanna help them, all I need to do is cut the strings on my hand. I have learned how to live by their rules, but my stretch marks look like stab wounds.

Don't look down on me
It's only temporary
Time will only tell
If i only fail
Track Name: Curse
Dark intentions and ugly feelings
Give me the machine I crave so much
The taste of metal is best served
With the pain of your touch

I want you to give me your curse
The procession is in place
Don't deny me this feeling
This desperation is all I need

Let's make a move out of here
Its full of perfection and I hate to be a part of it
I want to be the contrast in your space
Invert the colour that blinds our fate

I want you to give me your curse
The procession is in place
Don't deny me this feeling
This inspiration is all I need
Track Name: Cipher
Come with me
Dance in the flame
Send me a new high
Face in the ground

Dont you want to break?
I am under it all
Peel off the dirt
Sell me to the scum
Track Name: The Meat Market
Sometimes its the hands that push me down
But maybe its your voice that keeps me there

Pick the leanest slice of me
The taste of desperation is cold
Let it take over your soul
It knows you all too well

The price is not too bad when your not fussed
Two for a pound is all I am ever worth so

Pick the leanest slice of me
The taste of desperation is cold
Let it take over your soul
It knows you all too well

Your china is not worth enough
to hold my insecurities
You think you can cure it all away
But baby this where it begins
Sometimes its the hands that push me down
But maybe its your voice that keeps me there
The price is not too bad when your not fussed
Two for a pound is all I am ever worth so
Track Name: Pour Out Red
The faces of stone smile at me
I can understand the pain
Looking towards the hills I stare
Embracing the plain

Don't you want to say whatever you mean?
The words will pour out red

Addicted to the thought of dying young
I live for tomorrow but whats the point?
Giving up easy is not what I have planned
So give me something else

Life is such a drag sometimes
Wandering through the waste
Execute the disease
That pulls me to my knees

When all I want is you to..
Track Name: Post Mortem Depression
Screw up all the things you think are right
You are ignorant you don't know what its like
Things cant just be bought without the price
Who do you think will pick up the bill?

Sometimes its best to throw your ideals away
Look at what is going on in other states
You can't patch up the pieces with just your words
Things are so fucked up its not worth it at all

Your post mortem depression is what i need
Simply I am a rebel cause
Dance into the flame I am the sun
Disappointed in the definition of the young
Track Name: Nitocris
Walk through the fire
The feast lays on the table
Feed yourself bare
Look upon the death you bring

Embalm me with the blood
of my lost loved ones
you stole everything from me
but the river returns it all

Three points for good murder
turn into ash for you

Embalm me with the blood
of my lost loved ones
you stole everything from me
but the river returns it all
Track Name: Laken
Don't you feel a little close to death?
Y'know I can take you there?
This destination is a little shorter this time
Open up your eyes

Her name is irrelevant
All that matters is the mixture
It is all downhill from here
Just waltz into it

Can you prepare for the end?
Are you sure you want to follow?
There's no turning back from this hell
So just let it all fall

Kill off your smile
Fill your mouth with all the flies

Spirit let it take hold of me
You always never let me down
