Vuota – Eroguro Neurosis

Standard

A new project from the mind behind the fantastic Ripple’Field (posted here), that moves away from shining synthpop to a much darker sound. Vouta focuses on black metal, post-punk and goth rock to create something that transcends each of these genres. This is while managing to move flawlessly between rich melodies and raging, violent power. The tracks Short Breaths and Hanged are perhaps the best example of this polarity. The use of clean vocals will no doubt pull in those who are put off by the black metal tagging, but there is enough brute force and muffled screaming here to interest even the most kvlt of music fans.

RAGS – RAGS

Standard

RAGS is not an easy release to pin down. Free flowing and fuzzy guitar driven rock interspersed with an evolving ambient background, that plays out across two tracks that make up a 30 minute play time. A bit of a slow builder, but once it gets going it is textural and hypnotizing. Very different to anything I have heard in a while, and very easy to get lost in. Highly recommended.
