about

Bankerot is back! And with him a new collection of songs called Vampyr, released in collaboration with Forlaget Kornmod.
This is dense, haunting, like-breathing-through-GoreTex songwriting. Heavily melodic, patient and emotional, most of Vampyr was recorded in a small church during an endless summer at the Faroe Islands, with the Atlantic Ocean swaying beneath.
Bjarke Valentin says about the album:

"Titlen Vampyr kom til mig fra to sider:

et, begyndte jeg at spille et RPG-spil hvor figuren kunne blive til en vampyr;
to, slog det mig en morgen at jeg følte mig som en vampyr.

Vampyren er aristokraten, den velstillede beboer af et slot.
Vampyren tåler ikke dagens lys, men færdes kun om natten.
Vampyren rummer spørgsmål, som hvorfor smerte kan føles godt.
Vampyren er også den, der suger livskraften ud af sine ofre.

Bankerot føles mange gange lige livs-tærende og livfuldt. Her roder jeg rundt nede på bunden af kærlighedens væld, en undersøgen der til tider føles (i mangel af bedre ord) ikonoklastisk, dvs. ”man kan ikke udpensle så meget uden at smide grus i maskineriet”. Vampyren er for mig den, der kigger dybt ned i krystalglassets røde væske, velstillet, tilfreds, sulten og skamfuld."
