DEATH CULT ELECTRIC truly immerses themselves into their daring vision and in doing so create the most ardent, aggressive yet alluring compositions of our time. They lace these gargantuan soundscapes with a more-ish melody and these clever hooks which harness your full attention throughout.
With “The Fine Print“, DEATH CULT ELECTRIC solidifies their ability to build the most ferocious landscapes, this act are simply fearless, what better quality to embrace. “The Fine Print” immediately commences with this brash beat and gritty distorted tone, the impetuous structure comes into full force and opens the obnoxious emanation. Introducing the impressive vocal notes as the key addition to the aura allows for this air of aggression to cascade over the mighty notes.
Vocal notes fight against the colossal soundscape to showcase their crucial appeal. Dynamically delivering a range of tones and at its core, defiance. The vocal harmonies add this extra abrasive layer into the already dense infusion of ferocious fabric. The musicians manipulate the intensity of their creation throughout and relish within their raw attributes. DEATH CULT ELECTRIC do not shy away when it comes to producing these shattering soundscapes built on these pivotal textures. Clocking in at 3 minutes 22, the energy is so vivid and the journey feels so intense that the duration of the orchestration alludes to feeling longer, yet when silence reigns after the climactic finale, you’ll be missing the savage structure that went before.
Once you experience the tones from DEATH CULT ELECTRIC you’ll be obsessed, once again this act propels you into an innovative and immersive experience, their intensity is unlike anything else.
The dystopian noisy rock of DEATH CULT ELECTRIC will leave you wanting more and the one thing guaranteed is that you will never feel bored with them. Clearly influenced by the likes of Sonic Youth and Jesus Lizard, however, they are truly a breath of fresh air with a stench of nostalgia, that is also pretty unique, their name speaks for itself in this scenario, DEATH CULT ELECTRIC. A name determined by a mysterious panel pulling the lever on a cool band name generator. Previous single ‘Deleter’ was the sound of nuclear detonation distilled into digital format, yet from chaos comes reason. Commented Steffan, Our music is about forgetting everything you’ve known before and moving forward’.
