(DEBT #28) First pressing of 100 cassettes, comes with digital download.
“Sparse melodies and cold atmosphere is haunting. The best part of 80’s guitar goth mixed with a desperate rasp. Killing Joke meets Joy Division meets Bauhaus, presented in the sonic equivalent to a boom box recording. Classic." - James Farwell, Bison
Pillars of a Twisted City fuses together elements of black metal, gothic and thrash punk and is often hailed as the Ween of Heavy Metal. The very idea of a heavy metal Ween awards itself a double-take. It might even be considered blasphemous to some, but that’s exactly what Pillars Of A Twisted City is about. The Vancouver band harnesses an honest and raw approach to DIY metal with twists and turns at every corner. Inspired by a wide variety of musical influences like Entombed, Darkthrone, Thin Lizzy, The Who, Swervedriver, Gorgoroth, traditional Latin Flamenco music and The Damned, the band’s overall message is freedom. Not being chained to any one musical genre and not running the risk of homogenizing their sound.
