Bien à vous,
Eric of Tzii is
one busy man. It happens so many times that upon visiting and revisiting
his enormous and ever-expanding body of work that I wish to get the
fuck out of the US and be physically closer to the many buddies I am
forging fast and genuine friendships with through our art. Though I
had the shweeet ass privilege of interviewing Eric back when I wrote
for Heathen Harvest [http://www.heathenharvest.com/article.php?story=20091031170756401&query=.],
I was unfortunately left with a rather empty feeling. This was because
even though I had given him a good platform to satisfy my various inquiries
and [I’ll admit] curiosities, I had seen that he was really as
active as anyone could obviously gather from our interview. But despite
the fact we don’t talk often, I still feel proud that I know the
guy in some way. We’re not friends in the way I am with a certain
few that live across the pond, but it is certainly just as important
to me to be at the forefront of the work of such a talented, highly
artistic, and pleasant person.

"God Struggles For Your Sins": Here you can hear some violins with thunder....violins are the holy and pure spirit, the thunder is an act of god ]or any superior entity, you can call it what you want] but it's at the same time a menace... then you hear religious chorals [Christians], added with it the sample "drinking, murder, gambling... from suffering and pain". These words comes from a religious propaganda movie, so is god who struggles for your sins!!!!
"And Fails": but he fails, the living creatures on earth don't need him to sin, and they're ending their allegiance by listening to some pagan German song, making monstrous moaning...
"Look! They're Coming From The East! ": The main voice comes from the Guy Maddin movie "Tales From The Gimli Hospital", and it makes a parallel with "Archangel" in which the action is set in Russia.. This eastern reference follow the German one.
"And Lose Their Minds" : but when fighting and crossing Europe, it is not always so easy to stay of sound mind, and nobody knows who's crazy or not. Everybody loses his mind in the general chaos of nature.
"Calling From The Parallel": The parallel dimension. Something can be heard from there, does any living creature knows where and what is this dimension? We don't know, but one thing is sure: everybody hears it...
"Absorbed By Fanatism": Everybody knows that religion is a very important factor in the world order and fanaticism is the disease of the beliefs. All human decency is absorbed by it. Samples come from "The Road to Guantanamo", while at the same time, you can hear on it Christian propaganda.
"Is This Your Promised Heaven": What gets a hold of us is the promise of this heaven, the afterlife, but maybe it's more chaotic and perverse that we think...
"Please Keep Me Under Your Protection": ...we need a guardian angel to survive...
