Vaselyne - Necromancer

Reads: 572 times


While 'Necromancer' has been available for listening for some time, the video has only just been released. Vaselyne is a project that ambitiously blends poetic lyrics and melodies with harmonious, emotional tunes. A mesmerizing, profound, and deeply resonant original track features the amazing vocals of Frank Weyzig, who typically handles the instrumental aspects of the project, captivating listeners from the start.
The reinterpretation of 'The Doomed' by A Perfect Circle showcases Yvette's magical voice - delicate yet strong and charismatic. You can sense a hint of magic in it, a subtle shade of melancholy, contemplation, and at the same time, vitality and dynamism. The album also offers an instrumental rendition of 'Necromancer' and a remix by Pete Burns of Kill Shelter. Burns's version completely revamps the original, infusing it with a predatory, industrial sound, flirting with dark electro and noise. It sounds absolutely fantastic, with electronics taking the lead, while the tempo and beat remain strong, expressive, and full-bodied. I thoroughly enjoyed this remix, bravo. The video I mentioned earlier is a masterpiece - mystical, theatrical, reminiscent of Kate Bush's early works, and with a touch of Pina Bausch's stage style - it left a profound impression on me with its mysticism and beauty. Way to go!
