Samtar: Minimalistic approach…..

Samtar - The Curse Of Infinite Luminosity

Samtar states, «Awake was meant to be under produced and as minimalist as possible. I wanted to release it because I know we’re all in some pretty trying times, and I feel like this is a pretty optimistic song».

Lyrics::::::

Well first of all I’d like to say

That I’m happy I’m here

But second of all

I’d like to explain

Why I’m so pissed off

There’s no reason why things like this

Have gotten so bad

Except for ignorance

And a willingness to neglect

Your fellow man

You see them as less

I wouldn’t be the same

If it wasn’t those who made me

It wasn’t one

It wasn’t two

And it wasn’t twenty

It was a thousand little pieces

Broken in a million shards

Scattered throughout life

And tearing me apart

She’s awake

She can breath

She will fight

But she needs

You to help

You to see

You must be

The best

You can be

It isn’t fair

There must be some way

That we can right these wrongs

The shadow from a former life

Are inherited to the next one

Whether or not you notice that

I don’t care

It is the truth

Look to the graves

While their souls are forgotten

What they’ve done lives on

If you’re not picking up what I’m putting down

I’m saying that

Eternal life is a thing  in the most literal of ways

What do you think happens to your body when you die

What do you think happens to the ones you’ve effected once you’re gone

You live on through them

We’re awake

We can breath

We will fight

But we need

You to help

You to see

You must be

The best

You can be

It isn’t fair

I’m awake

I can breath

I will fight

But I need

You to help

You to see

You must be

The best

You can be

Hailing from the chilly depths of Madison, Wisconsin, experimental solo artist Samtar captures a dystopian but strangely infectious sound.  With his July 2020 debut album Plotting Against Reality gaining traction across streaming platforms, Samtar already has another album to unleash in January 2021.

Samtar grew up on the likes of System Of A Down, The Black Dahlia Murder, Sublime, and Muse; now he unites these divergent influences with writhing bass lines, hook-heavy guitars and keys, and a strong dose of Mike Patton-inspired vocals.  He also takes inspiration from sci-fi films and literature.  A student of Helion Prime vocalist Mary Zimmer, Samtar’s music vacillates between revolutionary themes in songs like Blank Faced Carnival and the ambiguous introspection of delicate ballads such as Vulnerable

«The listener can apply my songs to whatever they’re experiencing personally», he says. «Embrace the oddities but celebrate our similarities. […]  I want my fans to think for themselves.  Doing so can lead one down a difficult path, but it’s worth it».

Samtar’s second album, The Curse Of Infinite Luminosity, will be released on January 8th, 2021 on all digital platforms with CDs available as well.  With its absorbing hooks and an inventive sonic palette, the music of Samtar is sure to spread far beyond Wisconsin.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5741 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
