Diorama is a German electropop band. The name of the band is a metaphor which represents their notion of music as an artistic form of expression.

Diorama are often labeled as „EBM“, “Electro-Pop”, “Future Pop” or “Darkwave” (particularity on the albums „Her Liquid Arms“ and „Pale“).

The melodies can be fast-paced and backed by rhythms and can be melancholic ballads.

The diapason of the lyrics’ motifs takes inspiration from the inner world of the writer himself – Torben Wendt and also his surroundings.

The lyrics are written in a dark, kafkian style and are often ambiguous.

Distinctive playing with words and metaphors is one of the prominent virtues of Diorama’s artistic opus.

EXIT THE GREY

When they argue endlessly, to conceal that nothing is done
When I know my faith will falter, without touching anyone
When I fail to understand, the news they’re reading out
When the rats are taking over the unsinkable

When their trivial hearts are set, on trivial souvenirs
When the laughter is getting glamorous, while my lungs are filled with tears

When the thumbscrews of regret, shut all my systems down
When mortality is longing to be realized

Don’t tell me to leave my abyss
Don’t tell me to come to the surface
Don’t think there is a way to silence the rupture

Don’t tell me to leave my abyss
Don’t tell me to come to the surface
Don’t think there is a way to silence the rupture;
To exit the grey

When the veil of ignorance, alights on my ideas
When nobody pays attention if my nature disappears
When they put me in the dark, for a verdict without trial
When my will to breathe is fading in and out

Don’t tell me to leave my abyss
Don’t tell me to come to the surface
Don’t think there is a way to silence the rupture

Don’t tell me to leave my abyss
Don’t tell me to come to the surface
Don’t think there is a way to silence the rupture;
To exit the grey
To exit the grey
