"Smile At Death"
Smile At Death is a shot in the arm for not just Black Metal enthusiasts, but for anyone enticed by the heavier, darker side of music. Giller discusses the story behind and the essence of Smile At Death, as follows:
"Each song of the EP contains a detailed story and an artwork. While most of us enjoy the music itself, it is nearly impossible to understand the full meaning behind it without a story, more than that, sometimes a song can be heard in brand new ways, when a person understands what it is about. Thus, it would be really nice if you find some time to read the lyrics.
The music itself is based on black metal genre. However, the thing is, there was not a goal to follow the sound of the genre, but to convey a certain emotion whether it is rational madness, airy heaviness or just, as I call it, happy sadness. One does not necessarily exclude another.
Also, the album artwork includes almost all important details mentioned in the lyrics. For example, the atmosphere itself and the street is from “Grim Love Story”, the child is an allusion for “young and hopeless madmen” from “Smile At Death”, the crow symbolizes death “which whispers a somnolent spell” from “Pierce The Heavens”. There are lots of details, which I made an effort to explain in songs’ description.
I hope you’ll enjoy this sweet, but short EP made by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.
P.S: All the stories are not based on legends, myths, fairy tales etc. All of them are fiction made up in the sick mind of their author."
