Street Sects - The Morning After The Night We Raped Death

Hey, my name's Rush, and this is gonna be my first post on this blog. Just for some basic information about me, I make noise under the moniker Fit For A Funeral. Some of my favorite bands, as of late, are Full Of Hell (Favorite, always), Cold Cave, Raspberry Bulbs, Sexdrome, Death Grips, Sea Of Shit, and Water Torture (just to name a few). Enough about me, here we go.

The Morning After The Night We Raped Death
Street Sects
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. 

1. Bliss
2. Fate On Her Knees
3. We Live (Digital only Bonus track)
