I AM A CURSE are something that you experience not just as music but as a book, a multi format spectacle, a full-range emotional experience. Eversince I saw them in the small, now non-existent “Puzzle” Club in Plovdiv, Bulgaria I get totally engulfed by darkness, massive bass frequencies and slowly unveiled atmospheric screamo they’re playing. Everytime I play their tracks at home I’m there, in the darkest corner of the venue, not being able to move or look elsewhere but somewhere far. I AM A CURSE are paralyzing your muscles, trapping your mind in a vortex of stories about distance and death. Their music is throwing you somewhere in the burnt lands of forgotten revolutions, war ruins and lead you to your very own ascension beyond flesh and bone, beyond the material, beyond the world as we know it.

And if this sounds like a mere introduction it’s exactly what Sequel for an Unforgiving Wreckage : Civil Wars is. A captivating story, a fragment from an old painting I AM A CURSE have discovered and have been revealing piece by piece since their start as a band. So expect no surprises here, no radical style changes, the new I AM A CURSE is what the title says – a sequel to an amazing begining, which you have to play, listen and learn so you can enjoy live somewhere in Europe this summer, check out the tour dates. Feeling excited? You should be.
