Rev 16:8 Posts Track-By-Track Break Down

Swedish black metal act Rev 16:8 has posted a track-by-track break down of the band's latest album "Ashlands." You can check out the commentary from the band about each song below.

1. Agenda [Music: Nefastus, Lyrics: Talon]

Background: 'Agenda' was the second finished track for the album and was conceived by Nefastus in Creeper Sounds in early 2010. The initial thoughts regarding the song was to make it a fast, straight forward piece of Black Metal. Initially when the guitars and the drums were presented the vocal arrangements were an easy fit thanks to the open style of the material. After several listens the lyrics were written, and along with final edits it didn't take long to consider the track finalized.

Lyrics: Life is seen as the disease it is, where the physical and the abstract are the very same and just as meaningless, also time is introduced. Time is the narrator and serves as a reminder and to the reader a vanitas in written format.

2. Ashlands [Music: Nefastus, Lyrics: Talon]

Background: The making of the title track was an extensive process and a tough one to finish. For a long time 'Ashlands' consisted solely of two guitar riffs. When the song eventually started to unfold all the rest of the bits fell into place quickly. The material stretches a bit between styles and it shows in the end result. The balk of the lyrics were already written before the actual song was composed. The breaks and the twists the end material took made for a smooth and a more interesting implementation of vocal arrangements.

Lyrics: The title track is about the journey through emancipation and the liberation from the physical. It's a journey through inner conclusions to outer interpretations to the celebration of life's beautiful insignificance.
