In an epic double-disc project of pure post punk perfection, Have a Nice Life's Deathconsciousness includes every possible positive quality that I look for in an album. As far as sonic progression goes, HANL executes a perfect build up to a chaotic and very satisfying closer in Earthmover. Across the many genres displayed here, the band creates a sound that is very melancholy, but it has aggressive characteristics that make it gloomily energetic, and keeping all emotion intact.
Have a Nice Life - Deathconsciousness. There's no better way to sell a concept album then to have lore surrounding the album's narrative. Pink Floyd has enjoyed massive success with the anarchical The Wall and the spaced out Dark Side of the Moon. Dark Side of the Moon has such a deep legacy that people figured out that it can be synced up with the beginning of "The Wizard of Oz," the opening ambience of "Breathe" accompanying the Miramax lion growling. The Mars Volta have led their fans through crazy narratives. But a concept album can have a good concept but not be a good album. In the case of Deathconsciousness, the emotions and happenings of the life of Antiochus are perfectly captured in the mood of the actual music. All at once the album can sound deadly, harrowing, ambient, subdued, rough and refined.
I think Deathconsciousness itself ended up being a stylistically mixed album, and we picked those pieces out of an even bigger mix of stylistic pieces. It was just a grand sum of a lot of ideas we tried to flush out and bring to fruition. In terms of contrast, there was certainly never conflict. I think a few songs on the album were, like Holy Fucking Shit 40,000 was based on an old acoustic song. We didn’t have a grand plan for it. A couple things ended up happening. We were recording songs and we had a bunch of stuff we didn’t know what to do with. We had a lot of material always because we would just get together and always write new stuff, and never work on the old stuff. I think it started coming together as a project, like my dad passed away and I think that sort of threw things sharply into focus. After that, I took some of the life insurance money, which wasn’t a ton but it was enough to spend on something.
