"I cried against an ocean of light"

are you really pointing to poorly-written lyrics as evidence of this band sucking?

"I cried against an ocean of light" is the definitive lyric for their entire aesthetic

trust me that's definitely not the only piece of evidence I could point out!

I just think that's a bit of a weird thing to hone-in on, particularly within the metal genre in which lyrics have always been a little questionable. I mean for example you have NSV 5d (fair enough, good record) and fanboys can spout about how "poetic" Worm's lyrics were but at the end of the day lines like "In the kitchen with a screaming triple amputee/Its completion depends solely on my needs" from Phobophile are frankly much less tasteful than the lyric you chose from the title track here.

And yeah I fully realise this is a common aesthetic in DM but at the same time if lyrics are incomprehensible, which most of the time they are, I don't see how it's much of a problem with regards Sunbather.

I'm not sure how that affects the music here, that's more of an exterior issue if it's indeed the case

i understand your sentiment but the fact is that evaluating music with lyrics must take into account lyrical content.

if you can overlook bad lyrics great, but in this case the bad lyrics are more of an indicator for failings elsewhere than an actual fault.

eeeuuuhhhh idk i understand both sides of the argument, but my view is that in this style, the sound and aesthetic of the
vocals is way more important than the lyrics themselves (using them as "another instrument" rather than the focal
point)....they are literally incomprehensible if you're not reading along, so i dont think it detracts from the music, even if
they are cheesy and melodramatic

This is pretty bad even without looking at the lyrics though, so that's kind of a moot point.
