Track By Tracks: Tableau Mort - Veil of Stigma. Book I Mark of Delusion (2019)


1. Impending Corruption:

This track is ultimately about the obsession with figures of authority or dogma. It could be interpreted as a track about a religiously zealous individual, who has had a burning obsession with a religious figure. On the other hand, it is somewhat relevant to my own relationship with my father. 2. Fall of Man The obvious religious metaphor here is the fall of man after being cast from the garden of Eden. However, this song also explores mental health/depression in its lyrics too.

3. Carpenter of Sorrow:

This track can be interpreted as an anti-religious/Christian track. However, the track is more about the misuse of knowledge in any form. That can be religion, but also the application of science, for example, the development of nuclear weapons.

4. Broken on the Wheel:

This main metaphor in this track is the breaking wheel, a medieval torture device that was also used in the martyrdom of St Catherine. This track is quite personal, it is really about life in the high paced 21st century. The chorus calls for help, stating that ‘I’d rather die in sin, condemned than soon another’s corpse’. This is the feeling of wanting to kill yourself (a sin) rather than manage other people, or subject them to the same shit that you have been through.

5. Tapestry Sewn:

This track deals with the construction of religious philosophy to protect us from the often harmful world of the misunderstood. It also compares the myth of Jesus with that of the ancient figure ‘Mithras’ whose story bears semblance to that of Jesus Christ. There are lots of similarities in religions, which ultimately give people hope in a cold and lonely universe.

6. Mother’s promise:

This track is written in criticism of many popular web celebrities who claim that they know what is best for desperate young men. In a post religious world, young men are often lost and we can see this evidenced in higher suicide rates in the young male population. Certain individuals use these feelings of alienation to shape young men into political tools, or simply to sell worthless self help books. Young men are often promised a world of joy from their mothers, only to find that it is a cruel and hostile place.  

7. Beyond his Gaze:

Beyond his gaze is the closing track of the album, and assuch summarises many of the themes present. Ultimately, it deals with the cage of religion or dogmatic thought. It is about the dangers of a closed minded world view thatcan be shattered when presented with any other view. The lyrics are fairly lovecraftian, discussing the unknown horrors that lie beyond our mortal gaze. Often, however, we view the world through glasses created by the conditions that we grow up in
