Track By Tracks: Profane Elegy - When All Is Nothing (2023)

1. On Futility:

The opening track explores the innate human desire to believe in heaven that is at odds with the sadness and fear displayed when confronted with the finality of death. The delusions of heaven bring no solace when the casket is lowered into the earth.

2. Judas the Martyr:

In the second song on the album, we look at the character of Judas Iscariot through the lens of the apocryphal Gospel of Judas. Taking this alternative perspective he becomes a tragic character that challenges us to re-examine our assumptions of truth and reality.

3. The Devouring Veil:

Mankind is predatory and self-serving in nature and this track is a blistering criticism of the false virtue so many use to disguise it. Power is the prime motivation in the human beast so beware those who come as saints and saviors. Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

4. Vanity of Vanities:

This is a direct sequel to the first song on the album. Inspired by the poem ‘Ozymandias’ by Percy Bysshe Shelley, it explores the fleeting nature of all our accomplishments in life. No matter how great or small nothing lasts forever – time conquers all.

5. Architects:

A straightforward and fast-moving track that starts furiously until giving way to a quiet melody. This is a critique of the destruction humanity causes to the world around us. Ever at odds with nature, drunk on our own hubris, we will be our own destruction.

6. When All Is Nothing:

Heavily leaning into doom elements, the title track is about death and transformation. There may be no literal afterlife however we all experience a kind of reincarnation when we die and our matter returns to the universe.

7. My Scars Are My Crucifix:

The closing track on the album is a call to abandon religion. Without gods, we are free to achieve our true potential. Turn your back on the futility of faith and instead believe in yourself.
