The Anniversary of Aleah’s Death

When I wrote about April 5th on Grunge Graveyard, I quoted the beginning of T.S. Elliot’s The Wasteland and I think this is how I can sum up it here as well. Pelle, Peter, Aleah … April really is the cruellest month.

Light
Blistering, so bright
Re-align my core
Lenses open wide
Coming into form
The imprint of a life

Too late you’re calling out my name
To raise me up out of my grave
Alive in memory I’ll stay
If you shun these waters where I lay

Night
Curtains coming down
Into the shade I stray
Losing all I’ve found
To my own dismay
My season has come to an end

Too late you’re calling out my name
To raise me up out of my grave
Alive in memory I’ll stay
If you shun these waters where I lay

Leave me to rest
To drained to rise
To try to detect
Any light at the end of the tunnel…

Too late…

The 49th Anniversary of Pelle’s Birth

It would be awkward to wish happy birthday to a person who died by suicide and never really felt like a human being at all so let me just say, Pelle thank you for your presence on Earth and everything that you left for us. You will never be forgotten.

Everything here is so cold
Everything here is so dark
I remember it as from a dream
In the corner of this time

Diabolic shapes float by
Out from the dark
I remember it was here I died
By following the freezing moon

It’s night again
Night you beautiful
I please my hunger
On living humans
Night of hunger
Follow it’s call
Follow the freezing moon

Darkness is growing
The eternity opens
The cemetery lights up again
As in ancient times
Fallen souls die behind my steps
By following the freezing moon

Message From Anders, Pelle’s Brother

Here is a fan video with the message from Anders, the brother of Per Yngwe Ohlin (Dead) from Mayhem. I was planning to include the original Fb post here but it disappeared. The music for the video is a bit weird, I don’t know why it isn’t Mayhem or Morbid but some Tatu-like Russian music instead. Well, in the end the message is the most important anyway, you can always turn off the sound and play ‘Life Eternal’ like I am doing now.
