FULL STORY BELOW:

Yellow Limited to 50 copies.

Forgive and forget stands out to me for many reasons. I would say that this is the most melodic and romantic sounding of the begotten series. It uses mostly a different language so the words themselves are impossible for me to understand, but the sound of the music does all of the work with this one. Somehow, Begotten still manages that eeries feeling, a pit in your stomach, just a seed of something...off as you listen to this record.

This poem was given with the release:

"Can I recognize feelings?
Can I sense that they're there?
Has all gone to numbness?
In place of despair?

I can ask for forgiveness
But I know it will never come
I can wait until you forget
But there's no ridding of what's been done

Maybe you'll forgive me when my neck is hung."

Along with this quote:
"Tell me why..."

And this text:

罗尔斯表示,你想象自己在一个无知的面纱背后的原始位置。在这面纱的背后,你不知道自己和你的自然能力,或你在社会中的地位。你什么也不知道你的性别,种族,国籍或个人品味。

有人认为,如果在现在和过去都要实行这样一个概念,就可以产生巨大的影响。再次提到奴隶制的例子,如果奴隶主被迫通过无知的面纱来想象自己可能是奴隶,那么突然的奴隶制可能不再是合理的。也许在没有战争需要解决的情况下,整个做法都将被废除。一个较为典型的例子是,如果社会上的每一个人都将自己的做法作为一个事实,即他们可能是社会最不利的成员。在这种情况下,自由与平等可能会以许多哲学家的理想方式共存。

As stated in the last installment, I had finally been contacted by begotten once more. They had thanked me and for that, I was grateful. I emailed them back and thanked them for the submission and their music. I explained that people were enjoying it and that they should be proud.

This started a dialog back and forth for a bit. While I was not given any details about this person's whereabouts or who they actually were, they began describing to me the intense mental illness that they lived with. I actually hold a degree in psychology, so I understood a lot of what they explained.

But something (like most things involving this artist) seemed odd. The more emails I received, the more confident I was that I was not actually speaking with begotten directly. It was as if I was messaging someone who spoke for them; a caretaker perhaps? They spoke as though they'd studied the human psyche in depth and really knew the deepest feelings of begotten...but it just wasn't them.

I was in Europe with my band at this time on tour through Germany, so I have to admit, I was a bit distracted. I went for a little while without answering them (due to lack of WIFI and general busy-ness) and when I figured out how I would ask if it was someone speaking on begotten's behalf, I received one of the most disturbing emails yet.

The email contained Chinese text translating to extremely morbid words. At first, the text didn't seem to translate correctly. But in the end, I had a friend from China explain that it said they "would blow the shit out their own skull" with a gun.

Text:

"請原諒我的血,但是我已經割開了我的手腕和脖子。無論如何,沒有人會理解這個的原因。為了給出一些解釋,我不是人,這只是一個夢,很快我就會醒來。它太冷了,血液一直在凝固,加上我的新刀太鈍了。如果我沒有成功地死於刀,我會把所有的糞便吹掉我的頭骨"

There also was an attachment labeled "me"

It was a video.

I have yet to figure out what the video means, who it is, or what is going on in it. I uploaded it to youtube for you all to see as an unlisted video. If you click the link, you will be able to check it out:

youtu.be/3QUW-Pk9Vys

Was this some staged, fake video? Is it taken from a movie or tv show or even another youtube video? If anyone recognizes it, let me know. The sound is unrecognizable to me, as is the individual.

I am going to take some more time of searching and processing this new development.

In the meantime, enjoy (forgive and forget) - 原谅和忘记 by b e g o t t e n 自杀
