The Morning After The Night We Raped Death
Review by Rush Falknor
Genre/s: Noisecore, Harsh dance music (?)
Street Sects are a band storming out of Austin, Texas. Their debut EP, The Morning After The Night We Raped Death, is part 1 in a 5 part series called Gentrification: A Serial Album. On this EP, they have released two tracks (bonus track is also available on the bandcamp) of abrasive, yet almost dancy, sample-based noisecore. Pounding drum-machine rhythms assault you as harsh shrieked vocals in the background emerge from the depths like someone screaming for help from a dark, grimy alleyway. All 3 tracks are harsh, filthy, yet with a very rhythmic touch, every bass drum hit smashing into you, as the noise swirls you around this tornado of electronic violence. The lyrics are also a very interesting read. Don't sleep on this band. Link to their bandcamp below. Free download.
I believe I speak for all of us when I say:
I am not a monster.
I am not a virus.
I am not a gangster.
I am not trash that you can just throw away.
I am my mother’s bird and I have taught myself how to fly.
