GeN2Mo As the laughter, the crying, the trampling, the engine noises and cracking punches reach the balcony, scattered, reverberated and mingled into a singular moment of sound, they reveal what they really are, at the end of the day: screams. Manifold in cause, but one and truly whole in the loss that they carry. Favorite track: Staring At The Stars To The Sound Of Trucks Revving In The Distance.

Tatermancer The strongest forms of ecstasy can only be expressed through an encroaching veil of hostility, pain, and noise--a truth that LTDT realizes in her strongest release yet.

Final It appears La Torture des Ténèbres finally allowed Ms. Kinney to attain the success and international recognition she deserved with previous projects. Comforting to see. Favorite track: Lysol, Scrub Away Your Sanity.

slayer3628 LTDT continually showcases their mastery of harsh, melodic and dissonant sounds. It feels as if the piercing screams, mechanical drums and fuzzed out production could rip reality apart, but you're greeted with these warm, soaring guitar tones that are begging to cling onto some long, forgotten dream.
Don't be fooled, abandon all hope. Favorite track: Lysol, Scrub Away Your Sanity.

Lasse Gerrits Another piece of insanity from the citadel of broken dreams. LTDT is one of the best things happening in extreme music.

Track Name: Staring At The Stars To The Sound Of Trucks Revving In The Distance
Raise your glasses in wretched celebration
Time has come 'round at last to relinquish the bonds of your rational mind
To leave behind your miserable life
And descend into the depths of depraved revelry
Showering your flesh with filth wrought from unfiltered tar and procreational fluids
Substances that you are fully aware will wreak absolute ruination upon your mind and body
But yet still you partake in this vile ritual as it is completely beyond your mind's realm of rational consideration to not conform to cultural archetypes of one of your sociopolitical standing in a civilization where acceptance derives solely from feeding the perverse greed of others
Your brash gods have become dangerously well versed in the arts of galvanizing your downfall
Through harnessing your primordial currents, he compels you into the lifestyle he desires of one of your sociopolitical standing in order to use you against yourself
So dire are the circumstances which now face you that you have no choice other than to exhume that which has molded you into an individual so vulnerable to such psycho-emotional exploitation and so disposed to such self-defeating volition
Track Name: Enigma Of The Intergalactic Canyon
We were cast out into dimensions so infinitely deep
We saw things that man was never meant to see
We saw planets eaten alive by their own children
Children they spent aeons growing and nourishing
We saw endless fields of smouldering hives
Festering with negligence and disease
We saw gods betray civilizations constituted of their own loyal servants
Servants who swore to serve no more after witnessing the unimaginable cruelty that was always inevitably to befall them
We would wish such a fate on no one
Yet to it we have always and always shall be bound
Track Name: Somewhere In Brockville, In A Restroom Stall
We thought that our civilization would last forever
That our volitional patterns would unfold in perfect synchronicity
That you and I would stand side by side in the gateway to oblivion
But in the eyes of gods, I am a mere reflection
A surrogate for the distillery district
And from the heavens, a rain of corpses descends
To bury all knowledge of my loss
Swans upon swans upon swans
Track Name: Love Pumps Through My Veins As Quickly As You Kiss Me Goodbye
No matter what I would do, your exodus would remain as imminent
There was nothing that could reverse the floods of time and make it so that I had never done such terrible things deserving of far worse than abandonment
I would have never imagined in my darkest contemplations that things would end like this
That everything that I had fought for all of these years would fade away into the winds of change
That everyone I have ever loved would be taken away from me by circumstances far beyond my control
That there would be nothing I could do but watch as my life unfolded into thousands of shattered pieces before me in a field of merciless derision
On my knees, I am subject to the cruelest humiliation I have ever experienced before hundreds of people who I once thought were my friends
There is nothing I can do but bear witness to the mass migration of my people into the nether as I am left behind in the ruins of my failed aspirations
You could not take me with you because I have failed to prove myself worthy of your time and compassion
There is nothing I can do but watch as the last train pulls away from the station, leaving me behind in the last place on Earth I want to be
Track Name: Thank You For Holding My Hand Through Every Haunted House
No matter where I was in those years, you were always there for me
When my world was collapsing around me and everyone else had fled my side, you were there with me
When the nights became unbearably cold and lonesome, you would bring me a spark of hope to hold in the darkness
A lone candle to remind me that no matter what happened, I would never be alone
When my suffering would grow too much to bear and I would fall to the ground, you were always there to help me back to my feet
"Onwards, my love! And onwards!"
Your words would echo endlessly in my mind, filling the empty space within me with your time and compassion
And onwards I strove hence
Through endless dimensions of loss and agony, you were always there to guide me
The only one who never betrayed me
I knew you were defending me from them
I knew you were always fighting to keep me safe as I traveled through the perpetual nether
And only that thought would keep me alive
In years where I had grown weary with life
You were always there by my side
I would question as to why you cared for me so
What were you gaining from helping me through all this time?
Yet deep down, I was too afraid to hear your answer
Because deep down, I already knew
It's such a shame and such a pity that you aren't even real
Track Name: Lysol, Scrub Away Your Sanity
If I cannot make you want to be with me, then I will make you out of my own flesh
I will tear you out of my very own spine
And keep you always by my side
If I cannot have you with me, then I will become you
And you will never be able to take yourself away from me
Flesh intertwined in perfect synchronicity
But his time will not linger in perpetuity
Like with every other before him, his presence shall soon be replaced
He shall be taken away from this place and buried in a catacomb like all the others, a catacomb deep within the recesses of your mind
But there are so many other corpses to love and find
Black stone of selfishness through white sheets of purity
Stains on black sheets that will never scrub away
Lysol, scrub away your sanity
I have seen visions of things that will never come to pass
I have seen photographs of a love that was never meant to last
I hold onto your lifeless body beneath a sea of failing stars
I howl into the night sky
And beseech the gods to rid me of this curse
And implore the gods to put an end to my suffering
And plead the fates to take me away from this awful place
To cleanse me of my centuries of mistakes
I beg my savior for one final chance to prove myself to her
As she walked with her god through the infinity gate
Never to be seen again
