WITXHES - Rubber Seoul

Grotesqualizer

Hear Swedish avant combo WITXHES with their knocking down dance floor ferocity from the debut album “Bury Your Witxhes.”

Impacted by synth punk, NDW and black metal, the band delivers the ambiguous, inventive electro-rock production in “Rubber Seoul.” Henrik Sunbring’s opioid, gurgling keyboards and stubborn rhythm pattern plus Richard Ahlgren’s raw, neurotic vocal style make a gloomy, dynamic set, as if Mayhem made music under the influence of nightclub substances, Liaisons Dangereuses and Road Rash video games. And Ahlgren's metaphorical, poetic cut in this case escalates a burning and eerie feeling. Welcome to madness, ecstasy and speed.
