beastmilk Climax (CD, £6.75)
"Apocalyptic visions and a wicked sense of humour populate audio nightmares as Beastmilk create visceral, unsettling death rock for the elite", wrote Pitchfork of the band whose highly anticipated debut album poignantly combines haunting clean vocals, darkly shimmering melodies, and a throbbing rhythmic pulse to create an atmospheric yet energetic journey into post-punk's past, present, and definitely its future. "Elements of a gloomier Joy Division, an angrier Echo & The Bunnymen, a medicated Killing Joke, and even a lush layering of Peter Murphy" - all this, and vastly more, describes the immediately memorable 3D darkness of Beastmilk. In June 2013, they flew out to Boston, USA to record at GodCity Studio with the legendary Kurt Ballou (Converge), who produced their debut full-length album, Climax.
