Gloomy, visceral, dark and disturbing, the new album from A Place To Bury Strangers conjures up the image of some kind of Mad Max-esque future post-apocalypse. A world where haunted memories of life as it was cling to the nightmarish atmospherics that hang in the background of ‘Alone’ and ‘Slide‘, where the crashing, cataclysmic guitar lines ‘of You Are The One’ and ‘Worship’ mimic the twisted steel of a thousand cities burnt to the ground, and where the tortured vocals of ‘Fear’ replicate the petrified cries from the desperate few human survivors. A disturbing but utterly all-consuming listen.
