“Begging You Please”
viseMénn are a rock band that plays dreamy atmospheric rock. This southern Norwegian band has been around since the mid-2000s and consists of Lars Olav Mangelrød (Guitars), Helge Corneliussen (Bass/Vocals), Sølve Eggebø (Keyboards) and Magnar Lofthus (Drums).
It’s dark, kind of mournful, and fills me with dread almost. It’s not high energy, nor is it a true slow song. The lyrics are clear, full of emotion and raw sorrow; it has an echo effect to emphasis the level of sadness that it contains. The vocals are strong and smooth, the song’s guitar centered, done well, with a strong, powerful sound that is layered. It’s not flat; it has way more than one note to it. It hits you to the core and it hits you on more than one level. The son’s about being lost and waiting for someone to come find them so they don’t have to be broken and lost anymore, so hence the lyrics “Begging You Please come find me, take me home, let me not hurt anymore, I hate what I’m going through so find me please.”
Definitely a great beginning to what will hopefully become a whole album soon. (Rick Ecker)
