Boomkat Product Review:
Next level (un)holy noizze - church songs and volcanic, overdriven decadence for fans of Puce Mary, Kali Malone and The Body.
Rhode Island's Lingua Ignota takes a flamethrower to classical church music on "Agnus Dei", juxtaposing her incredible voice with frazzled tape crumble and cut-n-paste samples. The EP opens with 'In Tongues', a short bit that layers a chattering child over flourishing pipe organ, slowly allowing creeping noise to ignite the entire thing.
'SEXLESS // NO SEX' is a cover of Seattle hardcore band Iron Lung, and transforms the lightning-fast original into a funereal dirge centered around Kristin Hayter's powerful, evocative vocals. The title track is even stronger, a cover of Bach's Mass in B Minor that touches the poles of power electronics and holy Christian, European high art. Thoughtful, disrespectful and phenomenally effective.
