LICE deliver exactly what is needed in the current metal scene: Painful Honesty. Theymercilessly drag you into an abyss of nightmares and twisted meanings. ‘Woe Betide You’ revolves around timeless topics such as the stunning beauty of decomposition, the everlasting wisdom of the murderer´s knife, the nauseating stench of sex, the mask behind the mirror, the endangered longevity of the well-intentioned sociopath and the soothing devastation of loneliness.
Little is known about the activities of this uneven collective except that Niklas Kvarforth (SHINING) and J (TEITANBLOOD), two fearsome monsters of wise demeanour, became astonished to find such ferocity in the other´s eyes and decided to organize the hunting party right then and there. Not long after, smooth criminal-turned-guitarist Kirill Krowli was taken on board of the sinking vessel and the three Lice made a vow to submerge themselves in the bloody waters of madness with one noble mission: To inflict unbearable pain, misery and suffering upon the repellent creation of God…Woe betide you…
Their debut offering forces you to discover brand new solutions to the human flaw.
