CREATURE

You existed only in my head
I created you in my weak moment
But I overcame you
Finally you don’t have control over me

(Chorus 1):
Release it!
Your fear will kill you
Release it!
The angst restrains you
Release it!
The hatred drives you

I was afraid, of what the future brings
I feared that I could do nothing
But I realized it after
You don’t have power any longer

My creature has gone

(Chorus 2):
Release it!
Your fear will kill you
Release it!
The angst restrains you
Release it!
The hatred drives you
Keep it!
The hope will save you

Finally my mind is clear
You don’t have control over me

(Chorus 2)

DEAD FIRE

Having a rest in a white room
Talking to someone
There’s no answer
Flying like a white dove

This is your white room
You are the painter
This is your mind
You are the dreamer

The moment slipped away

(Chorus):
And you sit down with your last breath
Into the corner
You sit down with your last breath
Your story is over

The room is black now
Full of suffering
The souls crave after
Solace and memories

Someone is missing again

Silent words
relentless fate
lie-awake
Your fire is out. Now!
I came to say goodbye

(Chorus)

ON THE LINE

Storm is coming
It will sweep all away
People will disappear
Without recoil and trace

The town is burning
The fire burns up everything
The flames burn higher and higher
Living in a nightmare

(Chorus):
The souls turn away from the light
And give up hope in the night
The world is dying ’cause of the crime
Suicide humanity is walking on the line

We must find the light
In the darkness
The importance of moral fades away

The clouds are gathering
Ambush alone in the dark
Hear the screams
Of the dying and alive

The heart is bleeding
And full of pain everyday
Too many lies
The storm sweeps all away

It’s only existence
It’s only survival
It’s only suffering
It’s only desire -to live-
It’s only ire
No desire
Everything expires

(Chorus)

DIRTY NIGHT

Dirty dark night
Murder and rape
One more life
Pain and disgrace
Innocent victim
Is walking on the street
And praying for God,
„One more day please!”

Safe and nice home
The silence breaks
Brutal murder
An old lady screams
Raped mother
Is lying in the park
Crying child
Is hiding into her arms

Bars on windows
Limit in minds
Locks on doors
And hope in hearts
Illusion of safety
Inside the door
Fear and anguish
Behind the walls

(Chorus):
Where is the support
And the protection?
Indifference
And violation
Where is the support
And the protection?
There is no solidarity
(There is) No reaction

DARK VISION

Dead souls
In dead cities
Empty feelings
Bland dreams

Dead birds
On desolate fields
Used people lie
Under the bridge

Where are we heading for?

(Chorus):
Seclusion
Unremembered face
Dispassion
Missing embrace
Decayed life
Shattered faith
Desire
For another place

Generation
Without a root
Waifs and strays
without hope

There’s not a cover on the bed
Just a ragdoll from the past
Hugging arms, just a memory
Loneliness in reality

(Chorus)

VANISHING

I’m lying on the field
I feel the calm before the storm
On the sky I see the clouds
As they cover the Sun

On my skin I feel the rain
I feel the drops on my face
I hear the thunder afar
I close my eyes, I clear my mind

I’m walking through the haze
I draw the air, I feel it’s taste
I see the Sun as it paints
Colours in the rain

(Chorus):
Look around!
The time goes by
Look around!
The nature cries

Something disturbs me
A machine stands by me
Dust is spilled on me
Destruction again

I’m lying on the blacktop
I feel nothing. Say something!
On the square I see the trash
As it covers the past

(Chorus)

MEMORIES

Flashing scenes from the dark
The ink runs to waste
Faded face
Memories without details

Veiled words, veiled voice
Strikes the ear
Nameless vision
Wakes up memories from the disappeared

Sometimes from the fog
It looks through the window

(Chorus):
Nothing will ever be the same
Strained silence fills the final day
Unopened mouth, unopened eyes are full of pain
Nothing will ever be the same

On the verge of tears
There are not words
Screaming void from the soul
Does it still hurt?

The sadness won’t fade away
The sun goes down
Rushing aching memories
Return from time to time

(Chorus)

SYNTHETIC SOCIETY

New unneeded prototypes
New unsafe technologies
Where are the humans
And the undying experiences

New dead idol is born
New shallow ideals
False heroes smile
On the TV screens

(Chorus):
Perfect life in the virtual world
Too much lie in the spoken words
Beautiful smile in every picture
Too much lie in the spoken words

New shiny knick-knack
New toy gathers dust on the floor
Fading shadows
Fading shadows on the walls

New toxic medicine
New synthetic drugs
Distorted faces
In the broken mirrors

(Chorus)

BEREFT OF HOPE

They drive home
To their child
And read a tale
But don’t believe
They close the door
And wipe their tears
In their head
They hear the scream

(Chorus):
All the pain is shown on their face
The hope of tomorrow left them again
Broken dreams and painful memories
The spoiled past makes them diseased

Their home is cold
They’re too far away
They’re bored with days
And break down today
They regret themselves
And cause pain again
To everyone
I’M SORRY – they never say

They disappear
Again and again
And leave behind
Everything again

They kill their future
With destructive feelings
They lie to themselves
And live without wishes

(Chorus)

FLOWER AND CANDLE-LIGHT

Dark and weathered walls
Covered by age and smoke
Peaceful eyes in the armchair
Staring an old yellow picture

A soldier is walking on the sidewalk
From the barrack to the final cope
Compatriots on the streets
The soldier is walking between victims

(Chorus):
Please, tell it to me:
What you felt in the stem of the wall
Crawling in the dust on the ground
Between bayonets hiding under coats

A tired hand on the table
Pain and pleasure in her eyes
When she tells it to me
They sang and danced joyfully

Until the sound of weapons
Crushed their voice and hope
And only the fear was left behind
And only the fear was left behind

(Chorus)

Destroyed and ruined homes
The fallen and wastrel
Flower and candle-light
Which have been back to their mind

Hollow flag on the ground
Trace of volley on the walls
Trace of terror on the face
Trace of damage in the souls

(Chorus)

THE LAST DAY

You light
A candle in the night
You’re afraid
Of falling asleepe
You quake
Quake with fear
You burst
Into tears

(Chorus 1):
The last beat of the heart
The last breath of the mouth
The last flash of the eyes
The last sense of the mind

You are cold
You beg for a nice dream
Your body lightens
And shines
Everything shines

The sounds die down
In tears you die

(Chorus 2):
The last beat of the heart
The last breath of the mouth
The last flash of the eyes
The last sense of the mind
The last steps of the the feet
The last move of the flesh
The last flame of the life
The last beat of the heart

DARK VISIONS

review by Musiczine, Erik Vandamme # 06 Aug, 2018

Noisy Deafness is het solo project van Istvan Laszlok. Deze talentvolle Hongaarse multi-instrumentalist en tovenaar met klanken timmert sinds 2013 stevig aan de weg in de elkeltronica. In 2014 bracht hij een eerste EP op de markt ‘Remembrance’. Ondertussen mocht hij openingsact zijn van Leather Strip en bracht in 2015 een tweede EP uit, ‘Silent Scream’. Noisy Deafness bracht, eveneens in 2015, een goed ontvangen schijf uit: ‘Silent Remembrance’, via het label Electro Arc. Deze plaat is ook ons niet ontgaan. We schreven daarover:'' Zonder meer een experimenteel allegaartje, dat ons dus vooral na enkele luisterbeurten meer en meer kon boeien." Noisy Deafness is ondertussen niet stil blijven zitten. Nu komt hij met een gloednieuwe schijf op de proppen. ‘Dark Vision’, waar de man elektronische paden, binnen een donkere omgeving, verder uitspit. Percussie is een eerste rode draad in de meeste songs op deze schijf. Maar vooral is ‘Dark Vision’ wederom een experimentele zoektocht. Daarbij laat Noisy Deafness ook nu weer niet compleet in zijn kaarten kijken, en laat ons met veel vraagtekens achter. Net dit is het meest positieve aan de artiest en schijf. Er staat namelijk geen maat op de inspiratie tot experimentele drift van Istvan. Net zoals voorheen schippert Noisy Deafness daarbij tussen pure EBM met vette knipogen naar bijvoorbeeld bands als Depeche Mode. Daardoor wordt een ruim publiek aan elektronische muziek fans aangesproken, die echter vooral houden van die pure duistere kant van de zaak. Niet alleen instrumentaal, ook vocaal bewandelt Noisy Deafness daarbij bevreemdend aanvoelende wegen, waardoor je koude rillingen over je rug voelt lopen. Besluit: Noisy Deafness is een artiest die zichzelf blijft heruitvinden, die alle onderdelen van het elektronische landschap verder blijft aftasten, en daardoor de luisteraar voortdurend op het verkeerde been zet. Door voortdurend te schipperen tussen pure duisternis, en lichtvoetige klanken waarop je prompt gaat dansen door de straten, wordt niet alleen een ruim publiek aan liefhebbers van Elektronische muziek aangeboden. De man verlegt nog maar eens zijn eigen grenzen met deze ‘Dark Vision’. Waar wij dachten dat er geen grenzen meer waren. En dat is nog het meest opmerkelijke aan deze klasse artiest en schijf. Kortom. ‘Dark Vision’ is een plaat waar streepjes Depeche Mode worden vermengd met het meest donkere en harde EBM alsof dat de normaalste zaak van de wereld is. Een opmerkelijke en uitzonderlijk indrukwekkende gewaarwording, waardoor Noisy Deafness ons in het verleden reeds over de streep trok. Anno 2018 doet hij daar gewoon nog een paar scheppen bovenop.

DARK VISIONS

Official Press Release by EKP, # 20 April, 2018

The Hungarian solo act re-projects his personal, surreal interpretation of the electro concept, confirming himself as an original, inspired and strongly polarizing talent.

After the success of the debut album "Silent Remembrance" the project renews his style through high-quality technological sonic solutions, shading the melodies by a deep and enigmatic voice, interfaced with capturing synth flows, rigorous sequenced lines and with an energetic drum-programming. The secrets that make Noisy Deafness music so catchy is first of all unconventionality of sounds, experimentalism and the ability to create asymmetric, alienating and atmospherically obscure harmonies. All these connotations are more than ever present and fully active also in Dark Visions, the new and waited album enriched with precious electronic alchemies in which the listener will be abducted into a cerebral and introspective dimension. Internally all the eleven tracks of full-lenght exist a formidable, polymorphic symbiosis among sonic darkness, electro energy, emotional tension and a combination of sensory elements not definable with words. The drum-programming structures follow a linear but often unpredictable trend, while the keyboards propagate turbid orchestrations and a sharp vocalism insinuates wickedly in an illusory context of great suggestiveness. Noisy Deafness creates an unique and unrepeatable sound which represents a concrete example of equilibrium between form and function, capable of combining in turn aesthetics and technique.
