Your Life on Hold : Burning for the Ancient Connec Your Life on Hold : Burning for the Ancient Connec  Ref: 21905 "A must have album for classic gothic rock in the style of Fields of the Nephilim, Garden of Delight, My Dying Bride, Eden House..."

YOUR LIFE ON HOLD is the melancholic but consoling soundtrack to a life of solitude and loss. The music expresses the inner torments when life gets stuck in sorrow and despair. But it also wants to comfort the troubled soul and soothe the consuming feeling of desolation.

A gothic rock sound seemed like natural and fitting to express the melancholic and gloomy narrative of YOUR LIFE ON HOLD. Dreamy and atmospheric guitars inject brightness and colours into the dark compositions, while a tight and solid rock sound sometimes turns the melancholy into an angry harder wall of sound. Therefore we like to call it ‘post goth', because of the rich array of influences and textures, bringing the classic gothic rock sound to a new level. While drenching the guitars in dreamy ambient effects, Wolf finally forged a new sound that would become the blueprint of the melancholic YOUR LIFE ON HOLD music. John Wolf's classic ‘goth' voice is the perfect finalization of his modern compositions. As if he were exorcising his inner demons, the lyrics of John Wolf deal with disillusion, pain and desolation:

“Every night it happens, every night I die I wash away the pain with a gun in my hand I have a thousand dreams so I can fill up that hole

I have a loaded gun for my twisted soul” (from ‘Attawapsikat')

But within the darkness, there's always a hint of light and hope. The melodic melancholy of ‘Phoenix' and ‘Falling' are therefore far more consoling than merely depressing, while the furious monster ‘Exorcism' is the fierce but firm translation of the burning restlessness of the soul.

After getting in touch with Solar Lodge, things got in motion. While YOUR LIFE ON HOLD found itself a safe and professional home, the album got mixed by Artaud Seth ( Merciful Nuns , Garden Of Delight ), who gave the tracks that final exciting touch.
