about

A giant ballad/black metal song I've spend over a year making.
It's not as smooth and perfected as I would like, but I really need to stop working on this for the sake of my mental health. Working on something for 250+ hours takes its toll!

lyrics

(Norwegian:)

Title: Meningen

"Koffør skjer dette med mæ"
Jorda e våt av tåra og regn
Kalde, gråe ansikta vike unna
Ingen ser ka som ligge bak

Ka e hensikta bak alt det onde?
E det perspektive som følge?

På utsia e ho ei maur
Flittig, meningsfull og flink
På innsida gråt ho sårt
Fortapt, helt aleina

Han prøve forgjeves å forklar
Men ordan kommer ikke ut
Musikken som et bomberom
Bak vindusgitter, mellom kvite vegga

To ensomme sjela, demmes skjebna knytt sammen
En sterk melodi skyve dem fram

To redde barn i mørket blir drevet fra lyset
Famle sæ fram mellom ugress og røtter
To redde barn i mørket blir drevet mot lyden
Famle sæ fram til hverandres hender

"La mæ skinne lys på din vei"
"La oss finne veien, og sammen bevitne soloppgangen!"

To små barn med hver sin krukke
Ved et tre, på en benk i en park
"Vil du ha sjelen min i bytte for din?"

(English translation:)

"Why is this happening to me?"
The soil is drenched with tears and rain
Cold, grey faces turn away
Nobody is able to perceive the reason why

What is the purpose of all evil?
Could it be the perspective that follows?

She appears like an ant
Diligent, meaningful and adept
Inside she bitterly cries
Lost, all alone

In vain he attempts to explain
But the words will not come out
The music as a shelter
Behind barred windows, between white walls

Two lonesome souls, their destinies intertwined
A powerful melody drives them forwards

Two frightened children in the dark are driven away from light
Fumbling their way between the weeds and roots
Two frightened children in the dark are driven towards the sound
Fumbling their way to each other's hands

"Let me shine light along your path"
"Let us find the path, and together witness the rising sun"

Two small children, holding a jar each
Near a tree, on a bench in a park
"Would you like my soul in exchange for yours?"

about

Blix Nordland, Norway

Andreas Blix Jacobsen, the man behind the solo project "Blix", is a strange man.

I like to express myself using the piano, my guitars or my voice - most of the time all of the above! I prefer creating extreme metal in one way or another, but every now and then a ballad or instrumental piece might sneak in. ... more
