these lyrics are simply brutal. can’t help wanting to fall apart listening to butcher
You actually bring up a subject I wanted to talk about here. So I thank you for that. :)
I don’t really know why but I usually enjoy a song for the music and rarely for the lyrics. I know that both the music and the lyrics shape a song and some people may think that not listening to the words is enjoying half of the song. I may agree with them but I see this more as another way of listening to it.
I know that by doing so, some songs give me feelings that might be very far from what the lyrics convey (which is sometimes interesting to note). I also know that when I finally listen closely to the lyrics, they give another dimension that I’m glad to have. So why don’t I always listen to the words?
I really don’t know, because I’m the first one to enjoy a well written text. The only explanation I could find is that I’ve learned music and played the piano since I was 6 and for a long time I only learned about classical music. I learned to recognize musical instruments, rhythms, melodies, chords, composers and so on, and I think that’s what I’m still doing now, with every piece of music or song I listen to, unconsciously or not. I listen to and enjoy the music first.
As for The Butcher, I did listen to the lyrics and I agree with you, there is definitely something brutal that you also can feel with the beat that goes on from start to end.
(I bet you didn’t expect a long reply like this! ^^)
