I have a question about their album "In A Flesh Aquarium": does anyone know what language it is that they randomly go into in their songs? i know they're from Montreal but it doesn't look like French at all. If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it.

It could be either backwards French or Hungarian.

well, that is true, but i read some of the lyrics and they were in some other language.


as to the Hopelandic, I don't know if anyone besides Sigur Ros has adopted that. It'd be kind of funny though if more bands adopted new languages like that.

Being totally unacquainted with the group, I checked what it supposed to be the lyrics (written)... out of pure curiosity...

It is both (at least, it contains some Hungarian words).

thanks for the help. I'm not too familiar with Hungarian which is why I had trouble figuring it out, and I don't speak French, but I can identify it, but I've never tried doing so backwards.

I remember reading an interview where they said it was some language backwards possibly French and then they added their own grammar rules to it.

i just found that interview.

Squonk Opera is totally unknown to me, but I've heard some songs from Magma a while ago. Not enough to really give a grounded opinion about it, but from what I remember it was quite weird and progressive. They created their own language too I think. That’s something we have in common. We sometimes use what we call the Siaknarf, which is inversed French. We started to use this tongue for phonetic motives. We wanted a language that sounded harsh, exotic and different so we inversed Molière’s tongue, changed some grammatical rules and bam! We had our own personal language.
