About this album

“The Playground at the Edge of the Abyss”. (MALS 2011) is the second album from Danish “Heavy Prog” band TIИKICKER. As their highly acclaimed debut it is a concept album. The storyline is strictly non-fiction. The concept consists of a series of portraits, as each track either describes a character or their environment, along with the parallel story of dealing with the past, while trying to get out sane and alive.

The songs that are based on actual facts and true stories, dealing with subjects such as prostitution, abuse, suicide, on the couch sessions and exorcising childhood demons, and give the depiction of the hard life of the working class. The lyrics describe both personal, inward, as objective views, and all songs are based on authentic events, and all characters are also the real deal, only the names have been changed to protect the innocent! The album is an overall heavier and darker offering that its predecessor, but also has a more immediate approach


TIИKICKER dares you to go back in time to open the sealed doors of the past. Meet Frank (the successful bastard), Mary (the teenage prostitute), Jimi (the junkie), and the rest of the gang, all with a story of their own. Prepare to open a Pandora’s Box of memories and a closet full of skeletons!
