Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats - 13 Candles


Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition. The fear of Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom "Friday" is named in English and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen), or paraskevidekatriaphobia a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen") attached to phobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning "fear"). The latter word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.



Enough of this, we light a candle and listen to some music that fits in. Todays tune "13 Candles" combines catchy chorus, great guitar riffs and great Hammond organ melodies, it sticks to your head like glue and it reflects everything that this band is delivering. The tune is taken from the Cambridge-based psychedelic doom band "Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats" breakthrough album "Blood Lust"

The record is conceptual and tells the story of a drug addict and sadistic killer who is performing satanic rituals sacrificing women.



I was on the staircase by the bell
Blinded by the black magician's spell
Sorceress of death lay by my side
Rising of the blood came with the tide

13 candles, black and red set alight
13 candles black and red burning bright
I always burn black candles in the night
I began my ritual of sin
Exorcising demons from within
Casting spells of yearning and desire
We breathe in black smoke from Satan's fire

I raise up my dagger to the light
Knowingly the sorceress won't fight
I creep in from shadows cast away
And she bathes in goat's blood I hear her say

13 candles, black and red set alight
13 candles black and red burning bright
I always burn black candles in the night
