Alaric: S/T CD
[20 Buck Spin]

Alaric from Oakland, CA have existed for a few years now and are finally releasing their much anticipated debut LP via 20 Buck Spin. Comprised of Bay Area punk vets from bands like Dead & Gone, Enemies, Cross Stitched Eyes & Noothgrush, Alaric came together to play dark 80s inspired post-punk that sounds instantly familiar and completely unique. And though dark music has seen a resurgence among the indie scene lately, Alaric songs stand apart from such trite fashion and lo-fi tinkering, more inspired by and indebted to the sounds of Killing Joke, Rudimentary Peni, Christian Death and the like.

The 8 tracks on the LP are all stand outs, with “Eyes”, “Your God” and “Animal” being easy to imagine as well-received singles by the more interesting rock radio stations in 1982 or in 2011. The songs display an intense, foreboding aura, with a heavy production that is never “metal” in sound. Russ Kent’s guitar style at times recalls the adventurous playing on earlier Siouxsie records (thinking Kaleidoscope era), given the perfect foundation to experiment by the formidable, multi-faceted rhythm section. Shane Baker’s snarled singing hanging over it all and giving the album an unforgettable cohesion.

This product was added to our catalog on Monday 14 January, 2013.
