Christopher Carrion Music

1. Inner Blight
Words and Music By: Jesse Lacharite
Album: The Pleasure of Harm

Rotting from within
Litany of fragility

Crypts under lock a key
Miasma of putridity
Puddles of inequity
Spilling over eventually

I can't sleep
Horrible memories
Ashes of all that remains
The mind under strain

Lost on the moors of insanity
The mist covers my inadequacies

On the alters of normalcy
Turned against me...


Stripped metaphorically
Of everything that used to be
The hollow within
Suffocating my id

Burned alive
The fires of avarice
Blacken the soil
And sowing it with salt

You can't run away
From yourself...


The most intimate thoughts
Are deftly cut
Bleed them out
Before your very eyes


Leave me
To rot in Hell
The last remnants of life


This prison
Of the mind
Lashed constantly
Salvation denied...


Fists pound
In utter frustration
Of the self
The very core
Of my being
Extruded and rendered
Sown eyes
See nothing...
From within
My inner blight
All consuming

Country and City: Canada, Kingston
Band/Artist: Christopher Carrion
Album Title: Sycophantic Overtures
Label: Independent
Release Date: July 1st, 2020
Genre: Melodic Progressive Metal

'Christopher Carrion' is a traditional metal band with progressive embellishing from Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It is the brainchild of Producer and Multi-Instrumentalist Jesse Lacharite and was incepted in 2017 with the inaugural release, 'Evilly Dead'. The project accomplishes two goals. One, to create horror related concept albums and two, talk about sociological issues within today's political climate. The music is an amalgamation of traditional, thrash, alternative, death and black metal elements sprinkled with shades of classic and progressive seventies/eighties rock. Although the project is clearly on the heavier spectrum of music, there is 'Christopher Carrion's' more anomalous side. With albums like 'Simonist' and 'The Oubliette Trilogy: Future' the project demonstrates that more intimate settings can clearly be accommodated. The ultimate goal is to create a body of music that entertains whilst it provokes. Time will tell if I accomplish my goal, until then. The music continues...
