Exclusive Full-Album Stream: Last Poem/First Light by So Hideous


So Hideous - Last Poem First Light

Ready for one of the most beautiful ugly sounding albums you’ve ever heard? Then you’re ready for Last Poem/First Light, the new album from New York’s own So Hideous, innovators of blackened orchestral post-hardcore (yeah, you read that right). Recorded with The First Light Orchestra, a ten-person string section, a vocalist, and a tuba player (!), Last Poem/First Light may be the first album ever released to unite fans of Buried Inside with fans of Celeste. “Epic” and “raw” are both terms which get thrown around to describe metal bands all the time, but in the case of So Hideous, they really are the most fitting descriptors. Few bands can sound so furious and so morose at the same time.
