Posthuman - Murder In Slow Motion

Posthuman - Murder In Slow Motion“Murder In Slow Motion” from “Posthuman” bursts forth from the deep, shadowy corners of Norway, a song that perfectly represents the term “industrial pop“. The symbiosis of the hard, industrial soundscapes and the gentle, almost floating vocals conjures up a fascinating listening experience that is both energetic and dark at the same time. The harmonious composition lends the piece a depth that fans of the genre are sure to appreciate.

Comparisons with Scandroid’s “Pro-bots & Robophobes” may seem far-fetched, but “Murder In Slow Motion” is in every way on a par with this quality. The way in which the song navigates between the worlds of industrial and synth pop without losing its dark soul is remarkable. The industrial elements don’t push themselves to the fore, but blend seamlessly with the more melodic parts of the track.

Lyrics of “Posthuman – Murder In Slow Motion”

I’ve been waiting inside
For a long long time
Just to meet you

Cos I’m with you my friend
To the bitter end
I assure you

Don’t forget that I’m here
Through the blood and the tears
I adore you

And when you scream at my name
Put a smile on your face

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
And you’ll know my love is true

Murder in slow motion
My tongue inside your head

Murder in slow motion
Together we die

What a wonderful day
Won’t you come out and play?
Have you missed me?

Cos it’s never the same
When there ain’t any pain
Can you feel me?

You forget that I’m here
When you choke on your fear
I despise you

And when I scream out your name
Wipe that smile from off face

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
And you’ll know my love is true

Murder in slow motion
My tongue inside your head
Murder in slow motion

Bind and violate me
Cut me to the core
Once just pain
It’s now what I adore

Break and complicate me
Leave me wanting more
Love the pain
You know what I adore

Murder in slow motion
When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Then I’ll break you
Murder in slow motion

When I hurt you
Just like you want me to

Murder
Murder

Murder in slow motion

Posthuman about “Murder In Slow Motion”

Murder in Slow Motion delves into the profound anguish wrought by severe depression, likening it to a slow but relentless killer of the spirit. Through lyrical narration, depression assumes a tangible presence, personifying it as an actual being.

Slowly, over the course of the song, it evolves from an initially benign presence to one that becomes increasingly sinister. It insidiously asserts its perpetual presence, seemingly offering solace, only to unveil its true malevolent nature.

Ultimately, it coerces the sufferer into embracing and even cherishing their pain, fostering a dangerously intimate dependency that is all-consuming. In this perverse symbiosis, the sufferer becomes irrevocably bound to their affliction, perceiving it as an indispensable aspect of their being.

To relinquish the grip of depression would be tantamount to dismantling the very foundation upon which their identity rests.
