EXCLUSIVE ALBUM STREAM: Patriarchy- “Asking For It”

Dark Synthwave/Metal Musicians and visionary artists Patriarchy have dropped their jaw-dropping, genre-hopping new album today, Asking For It via the Dero Arcade label. Made up of duo Actually (aka Actually Huizenga) – LA-Based multidisciplinary artist – and Andrew Means (3Teeth multi-instrumentalist), the pair creates heavy, politically charged, and Gothy tracks that are equal parts KMFDM, Lords of Acid, but also danceable like PVRIS. It’s the perfect album for pre-gaming in your house for a night out with friends, while plotting to overthrow the establishment. Ghost Cult brings you their full album stream right now to enjoy.  Continue reading

3TEETH – Metawar

One of the best parts about reviewing albums is getting to deconstruct the music on the album and expose the soft squishy underbelly that the band hides deep within the tracks. The newest release from 3TEETH, Metawar (RED Music), is a case in point. The third studio album from the Los Angeles-based band is a cataclysmic master stroke pregnant with thinly veiled innuendo and tightly coiled enigma. Let me break that down for you in Skullgurl terms, this album is fanfuckingtastical. Continue reading

Blackest Of The Black Festival – Silverado, California

As the earth shook and the ground parted, so did the gates to another world open, spewing forth demons of the Blackest of the Black. Bands, fans, vendors and the occasional celebrity descended upon Oak Canyon Park—a quaint little camping spot nestled in the hills of Silverado, California—for the Blackest of the Black Festival. This gathering of the depraved and debauched was the brainchild of none other than Jersey native and trailblazer of horror punk and doom-goth-metal, Glenn Danzig. Opening day of the festival coincided with the release of Danzig’s new album, Black Laden Crown (Nuclear Blast Records), his follow-up to 2015’s Skeletons Continue reading

3Teeth – shutdown.exe

Industrial music has recently had quite resurgence when it comes to popularity and creative output. The likes of Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails have maintained huge, euphoric fan support throughout their careers (with the latter of course reforming in recent years), whilst the likes of Combichrist have continued to show just how diverse and immediate a style it can be. Whilst not the household name of some of their aforementioned peers, 3Teeth certainly warrant as much praise for flying the Industrial flag into a new generation; having been handpicked to support Tool on the back of their début self-titled album (Artoffact Records); a tour that delayed the workings of a follow-up which only now finally sees the light of day.
