As fluent as erosion Tearing and devouring The soil of the solid (Evident progress of a vacant flux) The movement, indistinct Yet a tremor and a turmoil Evident progress of a vacant flux (Evident progress of a vacant flux) Whirling in the wide open And immense in distances With its chaotic pulse This surge of a low tone As fluent as erosion Tearing and devouring The soil of the solid As the shivers down a spine Bending in the current Like a straw de-rooted and soaked The sensation A flickering blown out by the passing of a drift In the air through us as we float And this was not a choice we made
Nightspirit 06:42
You pin down stars etching the outlines of eternity On your map of the world as you know it You know your world, what more is love? If the heart is where passion resides The heart is the star of chaos Its bearings ever vacillating If passion is constant and focused It’s an obsession A monomania of the mind What then could love be? Surely not whatever and something else Every time you utter the word Not another rite for enforcing conformity? Struck numb we turn away To find new stars for fixing The bearing Cast another useless sextant over board
Gaia 04:49
Gaia, thy swelling rivers feed On our shores I have sensed it Like moss on stone We have gathered Trying on your patience Will you not tire? (as I have of myself) Of the flees in your hide Can you not be budged? Thy swelling rivers feed On our shores
Querencia 03:43
(I am) the sleaze of ages, the guilt forlorn And the rage is all there where we left it The weight is immense The whole of the Universe All within Like a spastic solace of turbulent thought Storming fierce and tearing to shreds The founding declaration of senses and gravity The weight is immense The whole of the Universe All within Through the toxic center of the clastic ego We trade our wounds as our prides clash In the texture, the sleaze bubbles We are a muck, wreak havoc I let you heal me and accept no gratitude The weight is immense The whole of the Universe All within
The constant rain pouring doubt like acid Like a spear (for the misfits and the core nucleus alike) And the core nucleus alike To topple any tyrant with Then and again To dream a way through And eat the concrete Of the throne of streets Then and again And hide on the outside Where there still are untrodden fields Shrouded in static grey Cocooned and contorting in petrified skin That cannot but crack And torrents of blood flow In those ravines that tear the land
Below Hope 04:24
Lest I would want to end it Inexorably born I will have existed And that’ s just the thing as it is with us Should we have been carved Hollow in the make – or reinvention (Inexorably born) It was all encrypted (Inexorably born) Lest we should want to understand nothing (Inexorably born) Are we drones but for our dreams? (Inexorably born) Dreaming some accumulation Inexorably enciphered Thus rendered useless Lest we should want to understand But the creation is, of course, impeccable Yet we dream as if it was impossible to be born empty Still, it all remains encrypted, the paramount thing
Ianto, I caught you by your whiff in the wind And followed its pungent lead We met at the outskirts In a ditch by a soaking wet Black-ploughed field You were staring at a toad Frozen by its legs On the ice of a murky puddle There’s your land And then there is mine Though both long gone By heart I know my woods No cultivation serves me With the likes of you But my blood, root and wounds Render me close enough And in a wild flash I see The beast that you are To you civil men are easy catch Like fat mice to a cat Ianto, Ianto The world’s cruel to us all not equally But still animals can tell by our pungent stench Which of us are prey Ianto, for once not confused I knew you by instinct And backed away
I would never feel you But do bear with me the weight of nothing But do bear with me the weight of living I would never feel you For I am immaculate and never scarred I touch with a blade and trade my scentless essence Invisible mimic I pray beyond radars Had you hope? I bear stealth to guide you And with silence greet your grave despair You come to me so eagerly but to meet a dead-end Know: I could never feel you But do bear with me the weight of nothing Of living stealth The more you hurt, the more I can give The more you want, the more I lack For I have but to gain Can you not sense it? The stealth? With it I drain from an abundant source As I draw blood and tears Can you not catch me of feeling? Do try and bear with me The weight of stealth
Rusticus 07:49
Singularity All the same behind my tired eyes The dread of sight And the rest of senses All summed into one A singular notion, dismay The distinguished guest forcing me To forfeit my demeaned stand To the mercy of others On useless feet drifting, all idle like gold Living on petty crumps of hope Carelessly diluting hope With water that tastes oddly familiar Doubt I could remember The forlorn members lost from the multitude On a fresh course in winding circles I dearly miss all the past agonies Of standing in mutiny Singularity All the same behind my tired eyes The dread of sight And the rest of senses All summed into one

Jewel case CD, 12-page booklet with lyrics. Cover art by Katrine Lyck

SELCOUTH is a collaboration of fantastic individuals from various nationalities and backgrounds, boldly flowing jazzy avant-garde tunes to metal, rock and post-this-and-that. Born as an always-evolving project with no musical boundaries, SELCOUTH currently include musicians from Finland, France, Spain, Russia and Argentina, all doing this for the love of the game. Among them, the whole Khanus' line-up, as well as members from Smohalla, Stagnant Waters, Pryapisme, Fixions, As Light Dies, Aegri Somnia, Monje de Fuego, etc.

With such premises, it doesn't come as a surprise that SELCOUTH's debut full-length album, appropriately titled “Heart Is The Star Of Chaos” presents itself as a visionary and multi-faceted work where metal has been melted together with progressive, jazz-fusion and avant-garde music, to obtain an amazing new alloy held together by lush arrangements of guitars and keyboards, creative rhythms, a vast array of male and female vocals, slanted yet memorable melodies, and a truly unpredictable songwriting.

Wrapped in a wonderful cover painting by Katrine Lyck, and with lyrics built around Jukka Ylisuvanto's poems, SELCOUTH's “Heart Is The Star Of Chaos” is an emotional rollercoaster that will certainly please all those who hold dear the music of Virus, Ved Buens Ende, Arcturus, Peccatum, Solefald, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Sigh, as well as 70s prog and fusion giants like Magma, Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra.
