Christian Death - Incendiary Lover

Hi all, this is my first posting, so I'd like to thank Cosmo for inviting me to present some of my favourite music.

Today I start with infamous Gothic band Christian Death.

Christian Death history

My personal relationship with Christian Death started more than two decades ago during my senior high school days when I had the chance to see them live. After high school I soon left the Gothic scene heading for further endeavours to find depth and soul, however, the music from Christian Death remained in my playlist until now.

This song is from their late 80ties album "Sex & Drugs & Rock'nRoll",  as their sound slowly drifted away from the original moody and melancholic style to heavy rock. But with the beautiful Gitane Demone on vocals the song remains an orbituary to their original style. The lyrics deal with the everlasting theme of the passionate and sinister stranger seducing an innocent girl. Isn't that we all dream of? Enjoy.

"It starts with a wink
and ends in disgrace
A question of silence I' m told
But love in clean
Or so I' m told

Incendiary lover
enter the threshold of time

They said that he was dirty , dirty , dirty
Incendiary lover

She undulates beneath him
Miasma , seduction
Slow and innocent corruption

Transgressing all frontiers
far beyond bordellos

Incendiary lover
lost in the threshold of time

They said that he was dirty , dirty , dirty .
Incendiary lover."
