Blessed are those who are invited to the swamp of the Elm!
Watch now “Swampland” the new video from Elm’s latest full-length “Dog”.
“Swampland is about the swamps that surround the fake serenity of the suburbs, like the one in the American Bible Belt and in North Italy.
It’s all about the darkness hidden in uncontaminated landscapes, around villages and suburbs where all human deceptions live. We are not judging, we just acknowledge what is happening: “Swampland’s all I know, Swampland’s all I own”.
Dog is dirty, sharp, crushing, no frills rock ’n’ roll, constantly overloaded never underestimated.
On their new album Dog, ELM wanders places lost somewhere between reality and imagination; Swamps and deserts where God is just a mere memory that leaves only a pale reflection, a dark and distorted echo that fosters the need for the absolute of irredeemable Sinners who live under the burden of their stories. They are stories from the darkest places of our society that nobody wants to tell; stories that need no judgement, where the outcasts end up unsurprisingly all in the same way; stories told through killer riffs and nasty plots by four respectable members of the community, who live the honest and relaxed small-town life.
