random single of the month

a cut from the 1999 hallowed & hollow album by scott-david allen, the nucleus behind the music of a covenant of thorns... this has been a favorite of mine for a long time. certainly a carefully crafted song with beautiful lyrics blended with pure harmonic vocals one can only imagine. acot released a couple of albums independently under a handful of nothing, this one being the first and one in 2004. the album is dark and melodic and 'purgatory' is one of the more livelier song from the album, but even more so... it's warm and emotional, a perfect antonym for synthpop music.

a covenant of thorns - purgatory...

Will you look into my soul
And tell me what you find
Tell me this emptiness
Is just a state of mind.
