The title says all. In this second Morgue's album, the band shows a psychedelic vision to the death process. "Sweet Apology Of Death" is the follower of the acclaimed album "The Mind Is A Labyrinth".
Formed by Rene (voice) and Gil (keys and programming), Morgue cross a new step after Marcelo M. (guitars, drum, keys) joined the line-up, with a complete new sonority structure with the wellknown background; cold strings, danceable hardbeats, harsh vox, noisy and astonishing atmospheres.
This industrial piece has references from hard electro to dark ambient and crossover, influenced by bands as Skinny Puppy, Haujobb, Download, Nine Inch Nails, Cold Meat stuff and even artists such as Timothy Leary, HR. Giger and David Bowie.
The lyrics explore death in several aspects: "On The Cross" brings a cyberpunk Jesus Christ living at 21st century, dead and crucified in the Apocalypse Day. "Daydreams Of A Serial Killer" was based in "Refugiados" from the wellknown Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, where serial killers try to purify the human race through their murders. "Nature's Freak" was inspired by a X-Files episode and "Underworld" remains to Dante Alighieri's "Inferno".
