The World Is A Vampire – “Trenchsewer b/w Heartshorn” LP
An extraodinary nightmarish sound, IFB and Feast Of Tentacles Records call it “noisy goth punk”. And then some, maties, there is s lot more going on here: the vocals, by Brian of Thou, are howled in a black metal style, while the music lurches and stomps with a whailing, feedback-drenched wall of sonic delight. Ratcheting-it-up into a hardcore style assault when needed; and dropping-in ear-pleasing melodic turns when least expected. Featuring members of various New Orleans bands: Thou/Treadles, Heat Dust, Secret Passage, Silver Dodling, and Bitchface.
