Do whatever you want here. Anything goes. (EDIT: July 2020, board is back up and working!)
so what's the logic behind being in a band in a foreign country yet using a non-native tongue for lyrics? i mean, the effort is certainly appreciated, but you kind of make us look like uneducated shitbags. which we are.

I don't see the point in writing lyrics in a language that ~0.0005% of the world understands, and about the same percentage of which would ever even begin to care about the type of music I make.
If we took the lyric sheets away from 75% of all the screamo bands out there, would there be much of a difference?smfy wrote:Shit sounds cooler when I don't understand it. Stop singing in english.
Heh well in my experience, the French generally dont speak english very well. Its pretty much impossible to communicate with the French on festivals. That, and they seem sort of proud of their language and it does sound kinda cool in songsyakbiddalz wrote:The French seem pretty reluctant to use English
Dutch is absolutely horrible to sing in almost any genre apart from popish shit. Shikari managed to do it to some extent but you can hear they still need to rhyme in order for it to work, something that isn't necessary with English. Also, personally, I can express myself much better in English. I assume that applies to a lot of people who write English lyrics despite being foreign. But I think the biggest reason is the language itself not being compatible since I've never seen a Belgian band sing in Dutch(apart from Shikari). A lot of people such as the French or the Japanese are also just horrible at learning English so as a result you hear a ton of screamo and hardcore in their own language.Heide wrote:It's SO much easier writing lyrics in English than writing them in Dutch, and it sounds really weird if you scream Dutch shit.
We plan on doing at least 1 Dutch song though
my friend had two french exchange students stay at his house (one was black) and i had no idea what they were saying half the time. i met two girls, one from sweden, one from spain, and they had almost perfect american accents.Heide wrote:Heh well in my experience, the French generally dont speak english very well.
