Posthuman – Murder In Slow Motion

Posthuman - Murder In Slow Motion"Murder In Slow Motion" from "Posthuman" bursts forth from the deep, shad­owy corners of Norway, a song that per­fectly rep­res­ents the term "indus­tri­al pop". The sym­bi­os­is of the hard, indus­tri­al sound­scapes and the gentle, almost float­ing vocals con­jures up a fas­cin­at­ing listen­ing exper­i­ence that is both ener­get­ic and dark at the same time. The har­mo­ni­ous com­pos­i­tion lends the piece a depth that fans of the genre are sure to appreciate.

Comparisons with Scandroid's "Pro-bots & Robophobes" may seem far-fetched, but "Murder In Slow Motion" is in every way on a par with this qual­ity. The way in which the song nav­ig­ates between the worlds of indus­tri­al and synth pop without los­ing its dark soul is remark­able. The indus­tri­al ele­ments don't push them­selves to the fore, but blend seam­lessly with the more melod­ic parts of the track.

Lyrics of "Posthuman – Murder In Slow Motion"

I’ve been wait­ing inside
For a long long time
Just to meet you

Cos I’m with you my friend
To the bit­ter end
I assure you

Don’t for­get that I’m here
Through the blood and the tears
I adore you

And when you scream at my name
Put a smile on your face

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
And you’ll know my love is true

Murder in slow motion
My tongue inside your head

Murder in slow motion
Together we die

What a won­der­ful day
Won’t you come out and play?
Have you missed me?

Cos it’s nev­er the same
When there ain't any pain
Can you feel me?

You for­get that I’m here
When you choke on your fear
I des­pise you

And when I scream out your name
Wipe that smile from off face

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
And you’ll know my love is true

Murder in slow motion
My tongue inside your head
Murder in slow motion

Bind and viol­ate me
Cut me to the core
Once just pain
It’s now what I adore

Break and com­plic­ate me
Leave me want­ing more
Love the pain
You know what I adore

Murder in slow motion
When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
Murder in slow motion

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Murder
Murder

Murder in slow motion

Posthuman about "Murder In Slow Motion"

Murder in Slow Motion delves into the pro­found anguish wrought by severe depres­sion, liken­ing it to a slow but relent­less killer of the spir­it. Through lyr­ic­al nar­ra­tion, depres­sion assumes a tan­gible pres­ence, per­son­i­fy­ing it as an actu­al being.

Slowly, over the course of the song, it evolves from an ini­tially benign pres­ence to one that becomes increas­ingly sin­is­ter. It insi­di­ously asserts its per­petu­al pres­ence, seem­ingly offer­ing solace, only to unveil its true malevol­ent nature.

Ultimately, it coerces the suf­fer­er into embra­cing and even cher­ish­ing their pain, fos­ter­ing a dan­ger­ously intim­ate depend­ency that is all-con­sum­ing. In this per­verse sym­bi­os­is, the suf­fer­er becomes irre­voc­ably bound to their afflic­tion, per­ceiv­ing it as an indis­pens­able aspect of their being.

To relin­quish the grip of depres­sion would be tan­tamount to dis­mant­ling the very found­a­tion upon which their iden­tity rests.
