When You Were A Girl.
April 30th, 2008 by Seamus


When amongst peers, there seems to be a certain amount of, for lack of a better term, ‘magic’ missing with respect to their idea of fear. The classic imagery of Ray Bradbury’s illustration seem to do little to stimulate any kind of fear-like response. This is a disappointing concept. The chains that rattle through fog filled graveyards seem to be silenced now. No transparent sheet of a specter would cause fear to rise in any reasonable young adult. Instead there may be laughter, or even worse, apathy with respect to this image. Realistic fear is just as rattling, however, it’s not as avoidable. No clove of garlic or circle of salt will protect anyone from a car-crash or a dirty bomb. It’s there that the real fear is. It seems that with the images of ghosts and the surreal, one could, hypothetically, control their fear and take superstitious precautions to avoid encountering them.

In the contemporary idea of fictional horror, the concepts and the stories are getting more realistic. This, again, is both good and bad. The better of the realistic can be truly stunning and leave one completely shaken to the core. The bad comes in the fact that it could potentially leave one further afraid and helpless feeling. All the while, the ghosts of the ghosts that once knew youth now shuffle without real reason. Their direction is lost as there’s little to anyone left to scare. The most recent track utilizes the heavily processed guitars as in the prior tracks, and a Celeste sound created through a series of keyboards, heavily processed to avoid juxtaposition in fidelity.
