about

At this time, it’s possible to notice psychobilly influences like on the title song, where alternative worlds are ironically explored again on an attempt to understand the nature of the band members’ ghoulish souls. Following the same music line, there’s the funny ‘BBBatz’, an innocent joke that doesn’t leave anybody’s head easily. On the other hand, visions of destruction and disorder are compiled on the epic ‘Where the souls dance free’, a progressive deathrock with that sarcastic aura of the prominent ‘Ghost Dance Party’ song. Back to our current reality, political lyrics discuss society corruption on the powerful somber post-punk ‘Right or Wrong’. Moreover, electronic synths and a distorted psychedelic bass drive the insane ‘Living in a Nightmare’, proving once again the group is not afraid of trying new ways to expose their disturbed thoughts. In addition, the gloom duet on ‘Lady Shadow’ shows the band maturity, while describing a fictitious attractive character as a way to suggest how evil seduces the mankind. After all, this album, through 12 spooktacular songs, demonstrates to any rock fan that there’s still too much to be created in this new dark music age.

“Great psychobilly spooky vocals from Daniel, tight
drums and bass pound against frenzied ghoulish guitars and epic spooky synths. Love it! Destined to be a classic!"

-Dj De’Ath Black Veiled Gothic (2015)



"Obviously highly deserving of being seen as leading lights in the South American dark scene The Knutz have a wide sound umbrella which should provide shade for the ears of anyone with noir sensibilities worldwide.
[...] An unusual band, throwing deliciously demented surprises in your face."

-Mercer, Mick.

Track Name: Where the Souls Dance Free
Lyrics:

Where the Souls Dance Free

The night is falling
You are passing through the ancient catacomb
Entering the deepest forest
And getting to somewhere else where the souls dance free

Your body begins to tremble, fading...
You look deathly pale
Your skin putrefies

As the moon grows in the sky
And you feel nothing at all
They’re waiting until you die
To dance among those bones
That lay beyond the stones

Now you’re standing by
And there’s no way out
You’re shaking like a fly
Being eaten by a spider
Burnt by the fire

The day won’t come again...
You don’t have a choice as you used to
Creepy-crawlies cover your whole face
And pushes you to the ground
Track Name: We are the Monsters
We are the monsters

We’ve already told you about the Ghost Dance Party
And all the boys and girls were invited
I know that you like all this creep show
Watch yourself not to lose the control

Cause,
We are the monsters!

We are the sons of the dark generation
We’ve been forgotten and rejected
The night’s still young and the morgue is open
It’s time to go before it’s over

Cause,
We are the monsters!

Scary little things until the end
Open your mouth and scream out loud
We got the horror we got the bones
Don’t turn off the lights
Track Name: Lady Shadow
Lady Shadow

When the house fell asleep in silence
Something sweet and fragrant approached my room
Quietly sly, loving as a weed, offered in the lust of its footsteps
As the one that fits into high heels and pointed shoes
Linking up on me like a vine about to parasite me

I’m cold and warm, evil and poisonous
You fell into my web… You have no way out…
Terrible, horrible, monstrous and vile
My name is Lady Shadow, I am seeking you for miles
I am the Black Widow
Widow of love
I’m the spider, I’m sneaky, I’m greedy and erotica

The throat cruel is heaving with desire
Everything in you burns in anger
Without love or shame or scruples
Only passion and lust
You trapped yourself it’s gonna be your end

I am the Black Widow
Widow of love
I’m the spider, I’m sneaky, I’m greedy and erotica

You trapped yourself it’s gonna be your end
And I will never satisfy myself without you
Track Name: BBBatz
BBBatz

Walking home alone I crossed the 13th street
Confused by the fog I saw some rats with wings
They stopped, looked back at me and flew all around
Twisting, whining so loud towards the town

BBBatz, BBBatz, Bats over the tower

Strange creatures
Winged rats without a tail
It really gave me goose bumps
Perplexed I managed to call my friend Dracula, and he said:
– Son, these rats are bats!

BBBatz, BBBatz, Bats over the tower

They stopped, looked back at me and flew all around
Twisting, whining so loud towards the town

BBBatz, BBBatz, Bats over the tower
Track Name: Bubbles of my Bubblegun
Bubbles of my bubblegun

Walking in the city I found a bubblegun
My bubblegun, tutti frutti one!
And it’s “plack plack plack plack plack” like a machinegun!

Bubbles of my bubblegun
And it’s “plack plack plack plack plack” like a machinegun!

My bubblegun fell on the ground but I don’t need it anymore
My bubble has gone but I have more at my home

Bubbles of my bubblegun
And it’s “plack plack plack plack plack” like a machinegun

My bubblegun, tutti frutti one!
Tutti frutti one!
Track Name: Living in a Nightmare
Living in this nightmare

Evil demons are following me, I don’t have a place to hide
My car crashed into the wall cause you left me upside down
Nor everything that shines is gold
How could you be so cold?

Nor everything that shines is gold
Tell me about your feelings and I’ll tell you mine
Nor everything that shines is gold
You are a liar, such a liar

Living in this nightmare, I’m haunted by you
You are wasting my time, you are draining my life
Even down on the ground
I keep running, running, I’m running around
Track Name: Right or Wrong
Right or Wrong

Innocence belongs to children
Jealous eyes are following you
In order to promote themselves
They drain your energy and youth
Keep the dark thoughts with you
Ignoring their existence
It doesn’t matter how to attack
Only the right decisions

Hey new born
Are you sure to open the door?

You are under pressure baby
The world is seeking you
Prove before they shut your mouth
You are paid for what you do
Corruption belongs to the rich
But also to the poor
Being honest to the neighbourhood
Should be taught in the school

Succeed
Hey kid, you are cheating on the test
Succeed
Mr. Politician you should be under arrestImagine the world through the eyes of a child
Be innocent to care, be fair enough to judge
Vain and selfishness infected our people
Be innocent to care, be fair enough to judge

The system is destroying us
Keep your mind straight enough
And face the troubles you can see
Sometimes it seems so right
To be completely wrong
There’s no sense of decency
In the world where I belong
Track Name: To Feel is Like to Touch
To feel is like to touch

To feel is like to touch
And it seems the same as breathing
To feel is like to whisper
It’s like to feel so far your body

I will take you over the moon, looping around and around
You will be so wonderful with the stars
I will be the chosen one to kiss your mouth
Here and near, strong and high
Our heart will be sealed and you will be mine

Never lock your heart with seven keys
Do you wanna know everything about me
I will love you, I will kiss you forever

Let’s spend our time doing what’s right
It’s all I ever wanted
So come to me and I will never let you,
I will never let you go
Track Name: Apple Sour Girl
Apple sour girl

Suddenly I start to know
What really happens to me
New chance, new changes
Better not to lose it again
I’ll tell you I’m a liar
What else more should I be?
I’m searching all the world
For a marvelous thing

I just wanna have a good night
Someone that makes me laugh
I could never realize
That it’s you!

Apple sour girl

Flavoured green eyes and acid smile
That always make me high
Disturb my senses, disturb my mind
Alcoholic nice

Sour talk, sour taste
Suffocates me
Apple thoughts, apple feelings
Paralyze me

Baby don’t say I’m a liar
I got more than you believe
I want to taste you, I want a shot of you
I want to drink you, I am drunk of you!

I want to taste you, I want a shot of you
Apple sour girl
Track Name: Crossing the Ocean
Crossing the ocean

Crossing the ocean through a waveform
Feel the wind, go upwind
Following the waves to reach the chant of your magnificent voice
Time and space are fractionating
As a starfish

Just open wide your rippled mind
Following your mermaid eyes
Sunset colors fade to black
Orange crack just melting

Crossing the ocean through a waveform
Feel the wind, go upwind
Following the trail of its golden scales
I ran into the shore
Enchanted by you I dive
Track Name: Lovers
Lovers

This is the passion of loversA kind of ecstasyBut you fail againDon’t put on me the blameDon’t come play with the devilIt’s just a dirty gameYou gave me a strokeYou are such a killing joke

Better take care
You’re driving me mad
These storms keep falling on my head
Yeah, you know?
Can you feel it grows?
It’ll never last

Bombs keep falling on my head
A cruel petal thorn is bleeding my chest
Yeah you know?
Can you feel me low?
It’ll never last

Don’t be so, miserable, I told you
It’ll never last forever

Oh I want you baby
Oh Yeah!
Oh I need you baby
So come on
So come on
Just like I told you
Just like I said before
Don’t come play with the devil
This is the passion
Track Name: Time to Time
Time to time

Let’s give time to time
Let’s sing to the moon
Just tonight
Cause I’m looking for
A kind of a secret view
I was so cruel
Don’t be so sad

Love is a knife
That cuts you twice
Slices of life
Breaking apart
I thought I was rude
And terribly rough
You broke the silence

Let’s give time to time
Just to feed the wolves
With our own flesh
We’ll be their meal
Cause I’m looking for
A kind of a secret view
I am so cruel
Don’t be so sad

I will always be here
Cause I’ve always been here
And you’ll never, never know
How could it be
