This is not an album to be listened to in the bright daylight. In fact, if you were to try, the world would feel strange and dim as you listened.
If you were to take The Cure’s sad tune “A Strange Day” and stretch it out into a full-length album, but inject it with the dark danceability of Drab Majesty, then I feel as though you would get Twilight Gymnastics
Ward of Roses wraps so many different things neatly into its palm, and it maintains its level of interest and intrigue from front to back with how well all of these different elements mix together. The vocal performances from both singers are utterly superb, and the instrumental performances are so damn tight.
From the thunderous energy of “Coil” to the chugging thwacks that accompany the heart-wrenching lyrics of “Ruse,” this album has a little something for everybody.
Norwegian Gothic is an album that explores so many genres, it’s truly difficult to tack it under any one label. It’s an exploration into previously uncharted territory more than anything else
The album starts off strong and finishes even stronger. It is energetic without being exhaustive.
Get inside the memorable Ministry show at 20 Monroe Live. The show saw the legendary Ministry bring their politically charged industrial metal to Grand Rapids with Chelsea Wolfe and The God Bombs.
One guitar. One voice. One man.
Uncomfortable like the warm blanket of death.
Two-piece, marrow-rattling, soul-powered DOOM METAL.
They make the death blanket, epically.
Riffy, interesting American metal, intelligently screaming about stupid ways of the world. George Carlin included.
