GosT’s Behemoth is the Most Metal Non-Metal Album You’ll Hear This Year
Publicist: <sends email with link to album stream>
Vince: “Holy fuck, this rips! It’d never fly on a metal website, but just wanted to let you know I dig it. Thanks for sending!”
Publicist: “Why not? It’s really metal-heads that listen mostly to this stuff, with Pertubator etc, the scene is starting to pick it up!”
Vince: “You know what, fuck it, you’re right.”
And it’s true: my friends and I are completely obsessed with Perturbator, Miami Nights 1984, etc. See also Myrone, who at least has the #softshred metal connection.
There’s something SO METAL and insanely dark about this music even though there’s nary a real guitar or real drum in sight. The press release describes GosT as “part slasher film, part monster movie, part late-night danceclub desperation – with equal amounts of influence from 1980s horror films, 1990s black metal, and a touch of 2000s club electro,” and I’d say that basically sums it up.
So: wat u think??? Stream two tracks from Behemoth below. The album comes out digitally tomorrow, April 7th, and physically on April 28th via Blood Music and can be pre-ordered here.
