about

FAIL·LURE: a blend between "failure" and "allure". Based on Peter Greenaway's "Drowning by Numbers" as well as several Art Nouveau works (e.g. Khnopff's "Ishtar", Klimt's "Mermaids" and "Water Serpents", Kotarbinskis "Kiss of Medusa" or Schwabes "La Vague") Farsot, one of Germany's conceptionally most ambitious black metal bands, have conceived their third album. "FAIL·LURE" addresses the inevitable dilemma between fascination and mania, desire and disgust, power and weakness – the seeming rift between the sexes. It is an allegory of life as a not endless game that cannot be won.
The cover, showing a sculpture by French artist Denis Lavoyer, reflects these topics. Female beauty idealized with branches for arms like threatening claws serves to perfectly visualize the main idea behind "FAIL·LURE".

The involved concept is countered musically by Farsot's more spontaneous, intuitive approach, consciously refraining from "heady" leanings and patterns. "FAIL·LURE" merges original Black Metal with mature yet always characteristic Farsot songwriting and hits home thanks to its to-the-point dynamism. Thus the album, which was produced by V. Santura (Triptykon, Secrets Of The Moon, Schammasch, Dark Fortress …), is closer along the lines of the band's much-heralded debut "||||" (2007) than its immediate predecessor "Insects" (2011).

about

Farsot Germany

Farsot have never liked being pigeon-holed. Flirting with Depressive Black Metal on their first recordings, the five musicians from Thuringia learned to stand on their own feet with their debut album "IIII" – not only stylistically, but conceptionally as well. In this manner, they created a classic of avant-garde Black Metal. In 2011, these musicians released the legitimate successor "Insects". ... more
