about

A new wave of Black Metal from Switzerland. Mixing classic Black Metal with electronic.

Created to fit the LP format, ‘Sulfur/Sodium, drags its listener in two distinctive landscapes, with each side of this album, both branded with the now famous ‘Swiss savoir-faire’.

Hypnotic riffing and inventive sampling are the trademark of urban construct ‘Sodium, while ‘Sulfur, plunges in an industrial yet melodic black metallic furnace.

Thought as a consortium of sound-crafters rather than a plain band, 3 DAYS OF SILENCE lies upon its three-core nucleus – Faex, AsCl3 and Tom. But also sees cameos by many talented artists, namely Aort (Code, Blutvial), John (Blutmond), Pat Bonvin (Near Death Condition), or Vince (Xicon). aCid (Wulff Kloff, Dark Isle) also crafted an ice-cold trip-hop remix, as an internet only bonus track.

Producer Drop (Sybreed, This Misery Garden) and visual artist Slo (Smohalla, Way To End) completes this outré city council.

Bitter impressions of damp British streets, soaked in ale and whisky. Fear of a blank future. Acceptance of our own frailty. 3 DAYS OF SILENCE is not going to take you some place safe.

Track Name: Mortality / Normality
Lyrics :

Black, blank hour
Photographs of what once was
Images du peu qu’il reste à faire
A glimpse of a bitter future
Oh so weak, I cannot find you
Eyes are dead, blind to all
At 4 am, the soft rain fades
I welcome sleep

Undenied, rolling through my head
And so where does my hate belong?
Red or green, traffic lights project no shade
Walk I can’t, stop I did
So long ago
Road worn off
My task: carry on
Peu à peu. Pas à pas.
Mortal, abnormal,
‘Til I accept the facts
Le chemin s’efface

Undenied, rolling through my head
And so where does my hate belong?
Mortal, so normal
Shoelaces untied
A glimpse of a greyer hour
Track Name: Ask The Dust
Lyrics :

The deafening sound of dust
Crashing in thick layers
In the room
Fills this loud void
Softens this cold voice
That screams ‘get out, live, die’

With feet nailed to the floor
And my mind way below
In the cellar, in the ground
I lie in wait
For a chance I never wanted
I want a chance that never comes

The dull thud of rain drops
Bangs on the blinds
A proof that all is not dead yet
Outside these walls I never leave
It hushes this soft whisper
Imploring me to die or live

A day like any other
A normal life
Track Name: Consolamentum
Lyrics :

Humans – Crowns of delusion
The mirror: broken
Born forgotten
You turn, turn, turn…
Skeletons on a merry-go-round

Animals under falling swords
Words: portholes of a sinking ship
Crawling in silent ashes
You burn, burn, burn...
Your hell’s inside your head

Puppets with self control
Frustration: raging
Someday, always too soon
You will learn, learn, learn...
There’s nothing out there, out of your bone boxes
Track Name: Na-tural S-tate
Lyrics :

Yellow, black
Golden eyes in der Nacht
Barely hides the guilt
Ignites our deepest instinct
A dog that chews in shame to spit out lust
Reject what I am, shed my former lies

Street lights, dim and weak, reflect the truth
Idly, unceasingly
Finsternis entdeckt den Hund
Lay the lamb in the gutter
Let its blood be washed in yellow flow
Starker as its veins empty
Stark as nothing remains to mirror our depravation

His mask can’t hide its shame
When the dog in me opens its yellow eyes
The dog opens my eyes

Der Hund öffnet meine Augen…

Sodium – the light that hardly burns
Sulfur – the great beast stirs in me
When the worst of us is brought to fucking life
Die Beute schlummert nie
Track Name: Verwüstung
Lyrics :

I am Eternity
I wander the endless tunnel of thoughts of afterlife

I stand serene
I rule a world that never will be and never was

Shapeless world of thoughts and dreams
Dominating the existence like a prolonging of myself
See that land far away where I grow and rule with infernal fire....

Somewhere somehow eternally Verwüstung - desolation
Track Name: S.W. MMVII
Lyrics :

Tidal wave, so distant
My dreams of an English shore
I feel at home at last
Said I won’t come back but I always do
Thames has spent her last brown drops
Some puddles now remain
Not deep enough to drown
Shallow enough to dye

Standing stones are ground to sand
The grains too small to stop the machinery of time
But my eyes, they turn to rain, hail and hills

Painted faces on the wall
And death rows its boat
These urban figures on the wall, they draw me home again
Marching these crowded empty streets
Will not bring any peace to me

Said I won’t come back
This time, I’ll stick to my word

Shells melt in Wales
Left a barren shore
I crave to tread as before
Said I won’t come back
You know the rest
Track Name: White Birds
Lyrics :

O Lord of Lords, so fierce of form
Please tell me who you are
Be gracious to me
O Lord of Lords
I don’t know what your mission is
And I desire to hear of it

O primal Lord, refuge of all
Your blazing deathlike face
In all directions, I am bewildered
O primal Lord
I see them dash into your mouth
Like moths into fire

Oh Lord

I am terrible time
Destroyer of all beings
In all worlds, in this world
Bright as a thousand suns
