A Deep Dive Into Human Desire

Swedish hard rock band The Mörkret is gearing up for the release of their latest single “Lust” on May 12th. The song delves into the animalistic nature of human desire, examining its prevalence and tolerance in modern society.

The lyrics of “Lust” express the idea of love being pursued through lust. “So, we want for love, we share the heart, we find the soul” they proclaim. The song maintains the classic hard rock sound that The Mörkret is known for, drawing inspiration from bands like Mustasch and Ghost while adding their own unique style.

Recorded in each band member’s home, “Lust” was born from a recorded idea brought to the group by one of the members. The songwriting and recording process went smoothly, as the band has experience creating music remotely. 

With “Lust,” The Mörkret showcases their versatility as they explore new themes while staying true to their roots. The song marks their tenth single release, the fifth released with Rexius Records, with whom they signed in 2021.

The song’s lyrics close with one of the band’s recurrent themes and a potent reminder, “Cause in the end, The Mörkret är din vän” (The Darkness is your friend).

Listeners can expect The Mörkret’s signature melodic and unpretentious style in “Lust”, which promises to be another hit for the band. Fans can look forward to its release on May 12th, 2023.
