Vitskär Süden - 'Thriller' (Michael Jackson cover)

It's close to midnight
And something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream
But terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze
As horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

Cause it’s a thriller, thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about to strike
Yeah it’s a thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer thriller tonight

You hear the door slam
And realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes
And hope that this is just imagination - girl
but all the while
You hear a creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you
There's demons closin' in on every side
They will possess you
Unless you change that number on your dial

Now is the time
For you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night
I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see

That this is thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller tonight

Vitskär Süden - 'Thriller'
Οι Vitskär Süden μας έρχονται από το Los Angeles (California). Ως προς το μουσικό τους ύφος; Πες το dark rock, πες το space rock, πες το prog rock. Η δισκογραφική τους εταιρεία (Ripple Music) τους χαρακτηρίζει κάπως έτσι:

«Weaving progressive rock, heavy psychedelic and gothic folk into towering and intensely beautiful soundscapes enhanced by deep-toned, commanding vocals, Vitskär Süden explores the rock world's eerie fringes, meeting at the crossroads of Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Wovenhand, Lord Vicar and Jaye Jayle.»

Το ντεμπούτο τους φέρει ως τίτλο το όνομα της μπάντας και κυκλοφόρησε αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο προ τετραετίας (Μάιος 2020). Το επόμενο δισκογραφικό τους πόνημα τιτλοφορείται "The Faceless King" και "βγήκε" πρόπερσι.

"Vessel" τιτλοφορείται ο τρίτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Vitskär Süden και "βγήκε" προ ημερών. Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση όμως θα γυρίσουμε μερικούς μήνες πίσω, στον Οκτώβριο του 2023 όταν η Αμερικάνικη μπάντα επιχειρούσε μία ιδιαίτερη προσέγγιση - διασκευή στην μεγάλη επιτυχία του Michael Jackson "Thriller"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «L.A. prog-doomers Vitskär Süden began experimenting with a cover version of Michael Jackson's monumental "Thriller" a few years ago during the recording of their second album The Faceless King, although most of the band didn't realize it.

"I launched into my vocal/bass take on "Thriller" around Halloween during a jam session and the guys joined in but had absolutely no idea that's what they were playing," says Martin Garner. "They thought I was just improvising like I usually do when we're writing."

Later, upon realizing what had emerged, the band decided to record the cover in proper Vitskär fashion as a Halloween treat for fans. "We developed an approach to the track that was something along the lines of 'a slo-mo trip to a seedy strip club with David Lynch,'" says Garner. "That told us everything we needed to know."»
