about

Thegn's sophomore release sees a change in direction - a return - to an industrial and EBM influenced sound.
Featuring twisted vocals, old Japanese folk music and film, and percussion crafted through unconventional sampling, Drown moves from shout-driven angst-ridden EBM to experimental techno made up of field recordings and re-purposed film scores.

Thegn's lyrics, while entirely in Japanese, are sparse. Ambiguously evoking themes of self-torment, pity, suicide contemplation, and frustration with quality of life. Perhaps it would be a far less disturbing and depressing listen if you don't understand Japanese or attempt to Google Translate the lyrics. Combined with vocal samples from cult film and old Japanese blues folk, the emotions and meaning of the songs are laid out like a Pollock painting, or perhaps more accurately like a Rorschach inkblot test.

Samples from 「夢の中へ」 by Sono Sion, 「たんごの節句」 by Morita Doji, 「Throne of Blood」 by Masaru Sato, 「天井」 by Yamasaki Hako, 「地獄」 by Nobuo Nakagawa, 「Tenno II」 by Teiji Ito

Thegn Vancouver, British Columbia

Techno/EBM artist from Vancouver (Canada) / Osaka (Japan).

It's easy for me
To search for you
Because I have a plan
I have a plan

The smell of your blood
Is leading to you
Don't cry anymore
So I can leave you alone

I present to you
All of my love

The smell of your blood
Is leading to you
Don't cry anymore
So I can leave you alone
The smell of your blood
Is leading to you
Don't bleed anymore
So I can leave you alone

I present to you
All of my love
I present to you
All of my love

泣かないで!
泣かないで!!
