Boomkat Product Review:
Skuzzy death rockers Cardinal & Nun return to L.I.E.S. with a full LP course of fossil-fuelled basslines, synths and morbid guitars following their entrée 12” in 2019.
Seemingly exhumed from the Parisian crypts some time in the wake of Joy Division, and spliced something Frankensteinian with essence of Suicide and Bauhaus, ‘Dancing In The Evil’ wears its gothic influences grimly. It’s a proper album in itself, but DJ’s should be looking out for witching hour goth dance bullets for the flouncers and jackers in the scowling swag of ‘Hear My Voice’ and ‘Danse macabre’, the leathered trewed strut of ‘Lost’, and the more swooning movement of ‘Pandemonium’ underpinned by a Sisters Of Mercy-esque bassline.
