Your Life On Hold
"Burning for the ancient Connection"
Label: Solar Lodge (2017)
YOUR LIFE ON HOLD is the melancholic but consoling soundtrack to a life of solitude and loss. The music expresses the inner torments when life gets stuck in sorrow and despair. But it also wants to comfort the troubled soul and soothe the consuming feeling of desolation.
A gothic rock sound seemed like natural and fitting to express the melancholic and gloomy narrative of YOUR LIFE ON HOLD. Dreamy and atmospheric guitars inject brightness and colours into the dark compositions, while a tight and solid rock sound sometimes turns the melancholy into an angry harder wall of sound. Therefore we like to call it post goth, because of the rich array of influences and textures, bringing the classic gothic rock sound to a new level. While drenching the guitars in dreamy ambient effects, Wolf finally forged a new sound that would become the blueprint of the melancholic YOUR LIFE ON HOLD music. John Wolfs classic goth voice is the perfect finalization of his modern compositions.
But within the darkness, theres always a hint of light and hope. The melodic melancholy of Phoenix and Falling are therefore far more consoling than merely depressing, while the furious monster Exorcism is the fierce but firm translation of the burning restlessness of the soul.
After getting in touch with Solar Lodge, things got in motion. While YOUR LIFE ON HOLD found itself a safe and professional home, the album got mixed by Artaud Seth (Merciful Nuns, Garden Of Delight), who gave the tracks that final exciting touch.
