FAIL·LURE: a blend between "failure" and "allure". Based on Peter Greenaway's "Drowning by Numbers" as well as several Art Nouveau works Farsot, one of Germany's conceptionally most ambitious black metal bands, have conceived their third album. "FAIL·LURE" addresses the inevitable dilemma between fascination and mania, desire and disgust, power and weakness – the seeming rift between the sexes. It is an allegory of life as a not endless game that cannot be won.The involved concept is countered musically by Farsot's more spontaneous, intuitive approach, consciously refraining from "heady" leanings and patterns. "FAIL·LURE" merges original Black Metal with mature yet always charactaristic Farsot songwriting and hits home thanks to its to-the-point dynamism. Thus the album, which was produced by V. Santura (Triptykon, Secrets Of The Moon, Schammasch, Dark Fortress …), is closer along the lines of the band's much-heralded debut "||||" (2007) than its immediate predecessor "Insects" (2011).
