love is nothing
love is nothing is the current experimental / metal /ambient project of Lee M. Bartow (aka Leech) who is best known for his former post-industrial noise project Navicon Torture Technologies.
Better for Leech to explain it himself...
"Energy can change form, but cannot be created or destroyed.
We are all hungry ghosts, leaving our mark in the fabric of space and time, leaving our mark on those who come in and out of our lives.
They leave their mark on and within us, as we leave our mark with them.
We may grieve for a time, we may not, but we can not ignore who we are as a result of having experienced them for a time.
At the core of my previous project Navicon Torture Technologies, beneath the visceral, decaying imagery and ranting rape-fantasies, was an attempt to convey a profound sense of loss. Disappointment, unrequited love, fear of being alone, expressed through the rage of the victim-turned-perpetrator.
With love is nothing., these same concepts can be explored, with a somewhat less vicious mode of expression.
Consider NTT as the place in which rage and denial meet, and love is nothing. as the calm that overtakes us as we accept that our fate is far worse than we ever imagined."
