about

The third EP from Minsk alternative band WEESP. On this album, the band embodied all their brave creative ideas by creating a unique cocktail of unusual guitar sound, interesting electronic inserts and strong, melodic vocals.
The group began its existence in 2009, and has now managed to assert itself as one of the youngest and most promising groups of the alternative scene in Belarus. The quality of the recording and sampling on their self-made releases is quite high, underscoring the professionalism of young musicians and their desire to develop their own music.

EP «This will destroy us» consists of six tracks, and each of them develops the musical conception of WEESP in its own way.

The title track «This will destroy us» stands a relatively fast pace, lots of synth and variety vocals. This song will certainly please those who prefer heavy music with electronics.

EP’s second track is no less dynamic and dense «There's like no tomorrow». In this arrangement is being developed melodic side WEESP, clearly expressed the emphasis on the complex structure of the track. Added to a single vocal choral parts, the guitar is still perfectly coexisting with a synthesizer, creating a rich background.

The next track has a chilling title «The Horror». Here the musicians tried to play something a little more slow, but with a bright melody, more relaxed vocals and energetic guitar thrashing. Electronic parties constantly provoke ragged pace of the composition, and the drums are successfully removed to the front end, which creates quite a powerful rhythmic message.

«Sub» - probably the quietest song on the EP. But the vocal is literally brought to hysterical notes and melodies are based mostly on keyboards. Until the very last seconds of the composition it develops on strain contrast and harmony, but in the end a sound storm suddenly falls on the listener’s head, mixed with hard guitar riffs, sharp shocks and aggressive bass party.

One of the most potential hit tracks on the EP – « Livan». This composition reflects an unusual approach to the development of musical artist’s scheme in every sense. Guys have masterfully realized their musical experiment on musical part by coloring track with oriental tones. Saxophone lose completes necessary emotional range. Melodic, gentleness and yet impulsive, sometimes even a kind of slow-motion - these are the associations that remain after listening to the song. To sum it up - a composition went out a holistic, progressive and even slightly pop.

EP is closed by a remastered version of the 2009 single «Exodus: origins». This song became the hallmark of WEESP not accidently – it holistically covers all stylistic and compositional features of this Minsk alternative band. Powerful, compact sound, successful insertion of a keyboard and excellent guitar accompaniment, expressive rhythm section - these are the main characteristics of the track. The new version significantly improves the quality of recording, all the instruments sounds cleaner, and in the foreground we can see duo of guitar and synthesizer.

Track Name: This will destroy us
We played in love long enough.
Enough to find out it's not love.
Cherished dreams and endless roam...
Remember the day we left home?
We promised to never come back again.

Did they tell you this will destroy us - we never listen.
Did they tell you this will destroy us - we never care.
Burning a candle at both ends - this will destroy us -
I want to prove that we still exist,
the meaning of all this,
I want to decide!

We'll never be the ones who never tried -
Forever the ones who gave it up.
We drifted to far from the shore,
We're sinking and still we want more.
And sleepless nights should have make sence

I brought you home... kissed you good bye.

Did they tell you this will destroy us - we never listen.
Did they tell you this will destroy us - we never care.
Will you burn until the end - this will destroy us -
I want to prove that we still exist,
the meaning of all this,
I want to decide!
Track Name: There's like no tomorrow
Burn tonight,
Strike sparks,
We will never die...

Do you hear that sound? Its universe watching us it speaks to us.
Anxiety inside me grows. No sleep tonight. The poet's rows:
'I wasted time, now time wastes me', it never waits - it hates me.
I'll never be eighteen again, let's act tonight like there is no tommorow.

These are craziest days,
And blinds are all in.
Keep shaking your ass
Before you grow too fucking old.

We are too young to care about our wealth and our health - we hate ourselves,
Ignoring every wise advise, no matter what - again we rise.
This city lights, this empty streets make me feel free and escaped.
The dealer got 21 again, the more we lose the more we gain...

These are craziest days,
And blinds are all in.
Keep shaking your ass
Before you grow too fucking old.

Burn tonight,
Strike sparks,
We will never die...

Yeah! City sleeps.
Let's just do what we were always afraid to do!
Let's go! Pretend this night is our last! Just go go go!

These are craziest days,
And blinds are all in.
Keep shaking your ass
Before you grow too fucking old.
Track Name: Livan
Looked once more at the back door,
Unclaimed and dissapointed.
Made a step ahead face the skies turns red,
I've made in a bet with everything i had.

ouhh.. beautiful world.
ouhh.. beautiful life.

I asked the bones - they use to never lie.
The bricks and stones - the truth have been denied.

I brought it to that rotten place
I once called home but everything's now strange.
I yelled and plead in horror and dispare - but noone ever care.
Abandoned in the dark, surrounded by the sharks.

I asked the bones - they use to never lie.
The bricks and stones - the truth have been denied.
Bring me back in my youth
And hide me from the truth I wish I never know.

Misinterpret and wrested truth in false books we were fed!
Stop talking shit about the apes, why and by whom we were made?

I asked the bones - they use to never lie.
The bricks and stones - the truth have been denied.
Bring me back in my youth
And hide me from the truth I wish I never know.

ouhh.. beautiful world.
ouhh.. beautiful life.
Track Name: SUB
You used to be one step ahead.
It's just because you don't fear.
This time you're not gonna make it,
But I know you will try.

Here left nothing alive in this hostile waters,
Left nothing alive - and the wind keep singing atonal tune.

It's so much deeper than I thought.
I try to get out but the doors are closed.
You don't fear cuz you don't care,
Yeah when you care you start to fear.

Here left nothing alive in this hostile waters,
Left nothing alive - and the wind keep singing atonal tune.

Oh god I'm climbing up the wall,
The fucking wall becomes the floor.
You don't fear cuz you don't care,
Yeah when you care you start to fear.

Here left nothing alive in this hostile waters,
Left nothing alive - and the wind keep singing atonal tune.

Shake me...

You hear the unborn baby scream.
That scream squeezes everything,
Oh god It's tearing everything.
Nothing will be the same again...
You can hear but you can't see it.
You can hate but you can't hurt it.
you can love but you can't touch it.
You can scream but noone hears you.
Track Name: The horror
Look up at the billions of suns
we could be already there if we've just learned to speak!
That's our anthill collapse
Chronicles of our lies and deception

Welcome on board!
Start all engines and get on the course
we set out (at light speed) to the stars (To better place)

Hey hello! Is this world big enough?
Please let us know Is there some space for us

you know I feel a bitter taste on my lips
I wish we could set ourselves free from our fears

come on and give us a chance
to see the beauty of new land
for the sake of all those
whose prays had never been heard
we can not change all the cruel things
that had already been done
but let's start build in dreams
Let's stop to run

And this bitter taste on my lips (tell me I'm wrong!)
will we always destroy what we build? (no we will not!)
I wish we could set ourselves free from our fears
and from our self-destructive addictions (we will set ourselves free!)

welcome on board!
Start all engines and get on the course
we set out (at light speed) to the stars (To better place)

Hey hello! Is this world big enough?
Please let us know Is there some space for us?
