Slaves refers to more than one artist: 1) Slaves was the original name of Pleasure Forever before it was changed. Their music is generally dark, and has a somewhat gothic/cabaret feel. Lyrical content (while heavily distorted on Alter) can be vague but is usually concerned with images of hedonism, lust, weakness of man, death and similar themes. Piano, keyboard and synthesizer are very dominant in their sound as well as very fuzzy, soft guitar sounds. With the exception of Sonny Kay, Slaves/Pleasure Forever features all the members of The VSS.
