about

Contrary to any other project by LME I hesitated for a long time before I decided whether I should release the Dusk album or not.

It was the first time I had to do everything by myself, the one who had been my other half for 6 years then had left the band and myself, and most of the band's following was quite hostile or uncomfortable with the idea of a "LME-1334" thing or a "LME feat.Osiris-Valor" or any other bad joke like that. I still had to explain that I wasn't ready to let everything down, after all those years working hard on 60 or so gigs, 4 albums and a 7" and about 100 songs that has been written by us, etc.

These times were quite harsh but finally I asked some friends if they wouldn't mind singing one or two song for my album (because using my own voice was out of the question) and once again it wasn't easy, LME has always been seen as... well... music activists, ok, but not really easy to deal with and we were well known for having a strong character as individuals. It was really a challenge to eat humble pie and asking some people for help and being finally turned down when I've always had seen them as supporters or friends.

But then I saw that people I already met in real life were looking for projects so I sent to them only minimal synths and drums demos, so the first vocal tracks were sent back to me and I'm sure they made the best possible choice. One track in particular had the special ability to cheer me up, "Bitter Moon", thanks to Thalie's outstanding vocals and lyrics. I understood quite quickly that we had something different from everything we ever did under the name LME, we started to go to unexplored musical places. So we also worked on "A Venusian Song" together, which is supposed to be a goth club classic, (well, we'll see) and "Human" came naturally as a logical follow-up... and then came the other musicians... and then the whole album was completed quite easily.

Every additional musician featuring on Dusk is also playing in a band or as a solo act such as
thalie.bandcamp.com
soundcloud.com/banshee-xuan
soundcloud.com/countessm
soundcloud.com/mutiara-damansara
soundcloud.com/FrozenInMonochrome
feroxide.bandcamp.com

Specials thanks are due to Al "Feroxide" Cable who was really helpful both as a producer and as a human being.
Shallowpulse (and her repeatedly deleted blogs) was also very inspirational to me, a muse with swastika eyes.

Azia came back in the band shortly after Dusk was completed, and then Damien came in to play bass, and then Olivier, who is our first drummer ever, and we're currently playing gigs under the name LME.

Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Thalie Némésis - A Venusian Song
Comfortably
Alienated and captive
Inexorably
Your love swallowed me

Once a blessing
Sinfully coveted
Hung to your skin
A haunting misery

You rise above
While I'm dancing on glass
Your love
A suffocating euphoria

Sharp like a knife, you entered my plaintive heart
Then without you I fell apart
As the drunkard to his wine
Swamped by your desire

{you know I was asking for it}
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Thalie Némésis - Bitter Moon
I don't care that you feel sorry
I just want you to get out
Promised me a different ending
All in all, such a bitter one

Failure, regrets
So much pride
Bruised flesh
Bitter moon
Burned inside
Twisted torment
Wants me dead

And I don't care that you feel sorry
I just want you to get out
Promised me a different ending
All in all, such a bitter one

Cold words, filled with lies
Twisted words, filled with lies

I don't care that you feel sorry
I just want you to get out
Promised me a different ending
All in all, such a bitter one

Wounded flesh
Weak muscles
Feel corrupted to my bones
Useless engine
Insane hunger
Inside this cold machinery

And I don't care that you feel sorry
I just want you to get out
Promised me a different ending
All in all, such a bitter one
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Thalie Némésis - A Song To Lunacy [2014]
Sink in the night the time is right
For all the seeds of night you find the taste is sour
Lethal doses of paranoia
Twisted shadows on the inside... on the inside

Ten thousand miles I've burnt my sight
For all the ways of life you only find denial

Delusion of thoughts possess your mind
Silent disease progressing fast... progressing fast.
Sink in the night the time is right
For all the seeds of night you find the taste is sour
Silent figures of psychic sound
Filthy pictures of disorder... of disorder

Ten thousand miles I've burnt my sight
For all the ways of life you only find denial
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. CountessM & Banshee Xuân - Cosmic
The energy around me moving swiftly
Its ecstasy when we assimilate
I house a spiritual image so stately
My cosmic flow it syncopates

The atmosphere's familiar nuance
My translucent state of mind

Exchanging moments for cosmic romance
On a sphere of cognant paths I find

Within the veil so near
The cosmic realm is here
The earth falls through the sky
We gravitate so high
The universe profound
Its spirit so world renown

Within the veil so near
The cosmic realm is here
The earth falls through the sky
We gravitate so high
The universe profound
Its spirit so world renown
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Charlize Ann Myers & Nix Crow - Free Mind
Golden prisons.
Prisons of mirrors
But we never try to break free.
Take a few glasses and hold my hand
Forget these other narcotics left around us.

Something is on the loose
My mind is something new.

Absinthe for the soul
Absinthe for the heart
Absinthe to satisfy my will to break free.
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Thalie Némésis - "Human"
I want it (to be) mine
If you think I'll have remorse
Or maybe I will renounce

Despite all this vanity
it is like a circuitry

Of this ego I feel the hangover
This vertigo (is) like a painkiller

I won't make apologies
of narcissistic injuries
Recognition's all I need
You'll pay what you owe me
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Frozen In Monochrome - She Goes
I can't get it out of my head she said
I heard her scream 'bout how she'd rather be dead
She knows, she knows, she'll never feel alright
Her soul is gonna fuckin' fly tonight

She sneaks past the town
and kneels down in the burial ground
She lights her candles
She builds her pyre
She goes to the graveyard to light herself on fire!

On Fire

She's not alone while she seethes
From behind the bushes, someone sees
They run up quick to collect the bones and ashes
Run through the trees between the flashes of moonlight

I'm building a shrine tonight
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Frozen In Monochrome - More Than Words
Try to keep still
Chained against my will
Pressing my face against the wall
I thought I could have it all
I thought I could have it all

On my knees
I'm in a haze
I've been in this hell for days
As I reach the edge of my cage
I turn around and go the other way

Try to keep still
Held against my will
At my sides, heavy arms lay
Buried deep, I rot away

Days and months float away
Memories of yesterday
I was never more than words
Nothing less and nothing more
Track Name: Les Modules Etranges feat. Banshee Xuân - Blind Mirrors
Look at your mirror, you will see so many of truths.
You prefer to look beside
Because your reflection is too...
Ugly to bear But your answer is just below
...Your eyes!

Are you so blind?!
But rather fucking see what you look like?
When you cheat and so you lie!
Let slip one by one...
All your clenched fingers
Lets the fate touching you...
Then allow it to slowly come into you...
You relax and coming for better forget
'cause a long time ago...you loved...

You don't want to remember
This is so far and so old
Needless to snatch corpses from their graves.
They know how to return
Do You call them every time you lie?
Every time you run away...?
Mostly, don't stop yourself!
You could very badly fall...

(...Your eyes! )

Are you so blind?!
But rather fucking see what you look like?
When you cheat and so you lie!
Let slip one by one...
All your clenched fingers
Lets the fate touching you
Then allow it to slowly come into you
You relax and coming for better forget
'cause a long time ago...you loved...
