Love of Life is the eighth studio album by American experimental rock band Swans. It was released in 1992 on Young God Records. Like its predecessor, Love of Life was out of print for a long time and had not been reissued until December 2015. Six of the eleven songs appear on the Various Failures compilation, and a further four appear on the Forever Burned compilation

Now, while it’s easily the most traditionally gothic Swans record, that’s where the album kind of falters. Occasionally, the instrumentation or songwriting will sound a bit derivative, almost imitative of certain gothic acts, such as the aforementioned Cure. While it certainly has the sound of Swans, with samples and Jarboe’s voice in particular, a large chunk of the ideas in here feel like they were borrowed from various gothic acts such as Joy Division, the Cure, and the Smiths.

This song is by Swans and appears on the album Love Of Life (1992). For the love of lifeFor the love of lifeIn the light of lifeIn the love of light. And the strong surviveFor the love of lifeAnd the strong will riseIn the endless light. For the blood of lifeFor the love of lifeIn the bloodless lightFor the love of life. In the blood is lightIn the light is lifeFor the love of lifeFor the love of life. In the endless lightIn the blood of lifeNow the strong will riseFor the love of light.

In the half-decade since Swans reformed, they have hammered away at a monolithic, all-consuming sound with unwavering focus. The three albums they've released since Michael Gira resurrected the project-2010's My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky, 2012's The Seer, and 2014's To Be Kind-taken together with contemporaneous tours and live albums, all feel like variations upon a single theme, expressions of an essential Swans-ness. For a while, though, they were the most mutable of bands. Drummers Anton Fier (White Light) and Vincent Signorelli and Ted Parson (Love of Life) lay into their snares with military gusto, driving the music forward in surging tattoos, and their nonstop rattle contributes to a sensation of overwhelming excess. Close your eyes, and you can practically see the sounds exploding like fireworks against the darkness of your lids.
