Hailed as being one of the most innovative new industrial bands Angelspit return with a new album Hideous and Perfect, a confronting audio visual statement set to corrupt listeners the world over.
Hideous and Perfect promises to be Angelspit’s darkest release to date with its sonic textures ranging from hard pounding beats, to organic atmospheric samples, topped off by a feverishly powerful male and female dual vocal
assault. The duo’s sonic exploration and creative process took them out of the studio, as they recorded much of the album’s pounding industrial percussion at an abandoned shipping yard in Sydney Harbour. They fashioned and sampled handmade acoustic and electronic instruments, imparting a unique organic sonic texture to Hideous and Perfect, while also giving a nod to the experimental roots of industrial music.
Hideous and Perfect is a vicious concoction of industrial guitar riffs,
clever hooks and pathologically disturbed synths. Consisting of 12 harsh,
heavy and deliberate tracks set to self destruct, Hideous and Perfect is
challenging as it is catchy.
The cyber punk track Ditch the Rest opens the album, with its crunching
malicious guitars and aggressive percussion setting the dynamic for the rest
of the album. Cold Hard Cash follows combining deceptively sweet vocals with
grinding rhythms and anarchic synth melodies. The tracks range from the
hypnotic pounding analogue hell of Sleep Now, to the elegantly deranged Let
Them Eat Distortion and to Fuck the Revolution’s brutal and unforgettable
rock and roll trip to insanity. Cinematically chilling instrumental tracks
provide some respite from the album’s intense mood. Zoog and Destroyx’s
turbulent vocal onslaught deals thematically with an apathetic cashed up
society who are simply ‘bored to death’. Angelspit’s double edged lyrics can
be poetically poignant, at other times witty, but are at all times severely
Angelspit’s aesthetic concept is equally as iconic as their musical
statement, as they continue to develop their fierce design and fashion
aesthetic. Visually arresting photography and bold typography characterises
the album’s striking artwork making Hideous and Perfect a defining album of
the industrial genre.
