Video – Covering Bauhaus well masked

From last Friday’s gig, here I am playing our own cover of Bauhaus’ Stigmata Martyr…wearing The Old Man’s mask. This is only the intro, full video link in the description. #bauhaus #postpunk #avantgarde #experimental #mask

Gear and tone matter – Know Your Gear! (cit.)

What a nice gig yesterday! Investing time, thought and money in quality equipment and effects layering (besides lots of practice!) does make a difference, performance- as well as tone-wise.

New lyrics video – Sabbatical Leave

I have published a lyrics video for the radio edit version of my song Sabbatical Leave. You can watch it below or on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1mfO0uZ7co

The full version of the track is on my Soundcloud profile at https://soundcloud.com/quantumprana/sabbatical-leave

“Sabbatical Leave” – a new track

“Sabbatical Leave” is the first tale of “The Adventures of Prof. Gideon Longbottom”. The evil researcher hates the world, and particularly his students with their smartphones always at hand. He therefore takes a Sabbatical leave to close himself into a laboratory in the cellar, for designing a weapon of mass destruction…with some (dark) humour.

Quantum Prana: vocals, lyrics, guitar, bass, programmed drums, production.

SABBATICAL LEAVE

Walking down the hall, the comedy plays
Students mocking me, “The hatchback will pay”
The rector won’t pay me regards
The faculty has only retards
Walking stick is carrying
My twisted proportions

My forehead is spacious
To accommodate grandeur
Massive head, naughty grin
My asymmetric chin
Showing the wasteland of my hatred for you

BURN! THEM ALL!
Petty dreams end in screams
Fire, your sins
BURN! THEM ALL!
The final resolution
Apocalypse of melted skin

Students check their smartphone
For quantum optics attention is gone
Spoiling little brats, technology
Life upon a display, making them restless

Your ignorance, your blessing
The final resolution

I’m taking my leave
Working in silence
In the cellar
Holding your smartphone
My grin on their display

BURN! THEM ALL!
Makeup and soaring screams
Flaming phones melt your skin
BURN! THEM ALL!
The final resolution
I’m gonna be a superstar!

(My) walking stick in flames
But I won’t care at all
Dancing on your graves
My twisted figure at the shopping mall

Delirium of the senses
The women will be mine
I shall just collect the pieces
Legs oh, will be carbonised
But after all, it will be fair!

Stepping down the stairs, cursing them all
You wonder why my laughing erupts
“That evil man has gone nuts!”

The dawn of my revenge
Sabbatical call

BURN! THEM ALL!
BURN! THEM ALL!
Revenge is nigh!
