Deathconsciousness is the first album by the future-shoegaze band Have A Nice Life. It is a double album, separated into "The Plow That Broke The Plains" and "The Future", which are the first and second discs respectively. The album has received very positive critical reception, receiving a 7/10 from Piero Scaruffi and a 4.5 out of 5 on Sputnikmusic.
Album Cover and Packaging
The album artwork is a darkened version of the Jacques-Louis David painting, The Death of Marat, which documents the death of French revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat. The album came packaged with a 75 page booklet entitled “On An Obscure Text”, documenting the life, literature, and followers of a 13th century Italian writer and religious figure named Antiochus. The album was later pressed on vinyl in 2009.
The album is distributed by Enemies List Home Recordings.
