Disconected Souls: A technique of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold!

Disconected Souls – Kintsukuroi

Disconnected Souls take their inspiration from numerous genres and combine ideas to create something dramatic, atmospheric and unique. With each member bringing a diverse range of musical interests to the table, the resulting sound encompasses a wide variety of instrumental and vocal styles. «We experiment with notions of juxtaposing forces becoming entwined to create something fantastical».

Eclectic cinematic metal outfit Dissconnected Souls are preparing to unleash another addition to their smorgasbord of releases. Kintsukuroi is the new extended single, including an instrumental B-side that delves into a wealth of electronics, orchestral and oriental elements, entwined with their heavy sound.

Vocalist Patrick Lloyd comments:

«Kintsukuroi’ (金繕い), translated to English as golden repair, is a Japanese technique of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold – the gold fills in the cracks, emphasizing the scars, and thus, embracing the history and newfound beauty of the object».

The people around me go through so many hardships in life, and I wanted to write that despite all the pain that they’ve been going through, I sorely wish that they will come out the other side stronger and more beautiful (in a metaphorical sort of sense).

I’m not usually one for writing positive lyrics; there’s a lot of bad in the world to write about; so this song took on a very bittersweet sound – soulful and melancholic, but mixed with hope of a gilded metamorphosis. The track Kintsukuroi,

Following their ethereal single release Petrichor, Kintsukuroi brings intense energy through anthemic choruses, hard-hitting breakdowns and a hard style interlude with an unexpected edge. Emotive vocals deliver intimate cleans, while utterly guttural harsh carry an unrelenting anguish. Disconnected Souls strive to create material that is compelling but also challenges and broadens the horizons of their audience. Contrapuntal melodies, carefully considered, cultivate an immersive atmosphere that aptly mirrors the lyrical content of the track.

Disconnected Souls`s sound is evolving and diversifying with each release, all the while maintaining a distinctive identity. The quintet thrives on embracing a vast array of influences, both musical and conceptual, to produce truly powerful music. Kintsukuroi is a thrilling cross-genre voyage into the depths of the, often incomprehensible, entanglement of darkness in our lives.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7405 Articles)
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.
