about

IDOLIZE is french Noise Rock / Metal power trio SOFY MAJOR’s second album.

Fall 2012, the band flys overseas to record IDOLIZE in Brooklyn @ Translator Audio studio with producer Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Keelhaul, Converge…). On October 29th, hurricane Sandy destroys the studio in its entirety, annihilating all the recording gear as well as the band’s one. The loss is 100%.

After hanging around in NY for a few days like 3 french hobos in America, thanks to the support of the Brooklyn indie music scene, the recording finally takes place with the precious help of Dave Curran (Unsane, Pigs) and their producer’s perseverance.

After 3 weeks of recording, the band embarks on their first US tour. A trip mixing ultimate mysticism, stupidity, bad karma and shitty disaster B movies without any special effect.

IDOLIZE represents two years of work, including 150 gigs on two continents and around 20 countries.

Track Name: Aucune Importance
Such a wonderful day to stab, to stick, to knife
He doesn't really know when he has to start,
What choice to make but that's
Just a detail.

Slowly digging, a gapping hole
right on your face,
lending him two smiles,
he only laughs one time,
right on your face
lending him two smiles

Stab, stick, knife, improve people's joy & bliss.
Track Name: Comment
Those damn pigs
hanging in the street.
Always
Surrounding my sole licence to kill.

I got high collapse
and I've never been too far now.

He says to take it easy.

Never again, never again,
you stupid pigs.
Never again, never again,
see what you have done.

Never again, never again,
you stupid pigs.
Never again, never again,
meet your enemy.

I'd rather get jailed by my own,
surrending myself to my own law.
Taking that shovel and digging my grave on my own.
Track Name: Bbbbreak
Get in, grab your suit, be prepared,
Bring your tools.
One shot,
Just one turn of a screwdriver.

Silly things all lead to silly results,
what if you do nothing ?
You're on the way
To satisfaction.
You feel better then feel guilty.

Bring your tools,
grab your suit, be prepared.
Just one shot,
let's get ready for some action.

Providing a passive mechanical murder,
You still satisfy masturbate and
Your office job turns into a slaughtering.

Hey you, neither me and neither you will mix up.
Never underestimate your task, it kills, it wrecks.

Just one shot,
Get your pen and stab yourself
Forget me, we're not friends.
Track Name: Slow And Painful
I doubt I want this one for me.
Underneath this sticky bar, drunkards call me.
I doubt I want this misery.
And i knew those fuckersdecided, this was not the last one for me.

You guide my steps
like a sailor needs a ship.

Honey, tonight, don't wait for me.
Track Name: Coffee Hammam
Never this again
It always happens to us
We are damned, we are damned
There is no one on our side

For some reason every single effort turns into a complete failure.

This is what you call bad luck.
There is no chance we get it right

But obviously, better be wet than dead.

We do not fail
it doesn't matter
what gets to us.
We do not fail
it's always better
than being cursed.

We'll never be the same,
opening our wounds
and tearing down
our own brains.

Track Name: Frost Forward
Stop it, you're always complaining.
If you started to look at us you'd figure
you're not the only one to be mindfucked.
I'll freaking wake you up.

He says his life always sucks ass.
I let him know it's not life but him.
She says she's always snowed under tons of stuff.
I tell her she's freaking me out.

Stop looking at you.
How annoying you are.
Stop whining all the time.

You drive me mad.
Track Name: Power Of Their Voice (Portobello Bones Cover) (EURO version only)
The 60's are a dark stain on American history.
They live to destroy whatever good came out of the 60's.
A period when the American people actually were informed and aware, and realized that they had a voice!
They demanded that the war ends.
Power of their voice.
They were marching for the children.
They were marching for the poor.
They were marching for dignity.
And now they're marching for their self-interest.
