about

"The Horrorist new album “Joyless pleasure” is out today on Things to Come records. Softer and surprisingly romantic but still full of energy and extremely tortured. You can't put one style tag on the album. In the 1st track “Modern” the voice will make you think of Ian Curtis, Joy Division. “Joyless pleasure” has a high Depeche Mode feel with ultra pure and detailed synths sounds and effects. “Darkling Lullaby”, “Love sick” and “Lovely Sweet” are 3 own in The Horrorist universe as they are not dance tracks. “Hostage” takes us on an electroclash direction and “I stand with you” in pure EBM style with a Nitzer Ebb impression. An album more mature than ever, more melancholic. Even if we can compare some songs to other people's sounds, there is one thing that will always belong to The Horrorist and be unique like this album: it's his strange stories. Joyless Pleasure is like a jewelry piece but in electronic music. " - morganistik.com

Track Name: Darkling Lullaby
I am sorry for what the world will do to you. Darkling I am sad to tell you the truth. Love is a lie like a butterfly. Dear I wish it was different for you. You will cry like everyone cries. I am sorry it's the truth. Darkling I am sad for for you. My sweet Darkling you will cry. You will cry and cry.
Track Name: Joyless Pleasure
I live in the past. A little child coming of age. A teenager learning sexual rage. I'm a sorry sight. Meeting with strangers. The danger of the night. I love the darkness. I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me. I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me. My back really hurts. Scratch my back won't you? A little lower friend. Kill me until I'm through. Smoke fills my lungs. Methamphetamine. A joyless pleasure in a dirty scene. I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me. I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me.

I'm so complicated. I always choose pain. I'm always intoxicated. Champagne and cocaine. Come come and kill. Come go away. Come later come never. Come come kill me!

I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me. I like dancing so much it makes me really crazy. I like you so much come come and kill me.
Track Name: Love Sick
Love sick dangerous blood falling from the sky. I want you everyone must die. Love sick unhappiness I scream into the night. I want you wrong or right. Love sick evilness on my way I lie. I want you everyone will cry. Love sick sickness people can't understand. I want you I am a sick sick man. Love sick tenderness alone we dance. I want eternal romance.

Track Name: Born this Way
When I was young I had a lot of problems and today nothings really changed. My mind is burning it's on fire and I know I will never escape. I must kill I must be the master. I'm wicked and you will feel pain. My pleasure is your disaster. I'm sorry I was born this way.

I tried to cry but I'm dead inside. I'm crazy yeah I'm never satisfied. I will go until I feed my appetite. I'm twisted and sick my wrong is right. I must conquer I must have my will. An immoral freak with his eye on you. I delight in your destruction. I'm sorry I was born this way.

I'm sorry I was ever born. I'm sorry for all the pain I cause. I can't help it it's in my DNA. I'm sorry I was born this way. I must punish I must smash. It's just something I'm compeled to do. My bliss is your sadness. I'm sorry I was born this way.
