The band comments:
The cover of this new album is a hand drawing made by the Hungarian artist Balázs Jacsó specially for us. Inspired by medieval artists, he tried to imitate the techniques of this area, creating an infinity of details.
In the vein of the Etienne de la Boétie’s concept dealing with the voluntary servitude, the artist tried to enlighten the overwhelming power of a tyrant, placing the viewer in the situation of the servant. As you can notice, he has no face. Everyone is free to see the tyrant he has accepted to serve obediently. We’re all someone’s bitch.
The three circles drawn around the frame symbolize the three elements of the submission: the whip for the oppressive strength, the crown for the symbol of power and the key for the illusional hope of freedom. It’s like the holy trinity.
The tyrant also wears broken chains, underlining his past as a servant himself… and the fact that we are most of the time our own tyrant, prisoner of a vicious circle.

2020 sees the release of their brand new album ‘Tyrant’ and is this time based on the concept of  ‘Le Discours de la Servitude Volontaire ‘ ( Voluntary Servitude Thesis) written by French philosopher Etienne de la Boétie.  Published fully in 1576, it deals with the idea that although servitude may appear to be forced, and that obedience is imposed to the people, appearances are misleading and such servitude is in fact entirely voluntary.

BLISS OF FLESH ’s new album ‘Tyrant’ album has been mixed and mastered at Vamacara studio in France by HK. (vamacarastudio.com) and is scheduled for an October 2, 2020 release date.
