Ghost Cult is proud to share the full album stream from Italian Noise rock band ELM! The Wait releases this Friday, June 12 via Bronson Recordings. Crunching riffs, fuzzed-out bass, and beats smash each other and then recede, while have sung half snarled vocals act as a warning to the listener. Tread lightly, and you’ll still get your proverbial teeth knocked back in your throat. The angular, aggro music the band puts out will find a common ground with fans of Helmet, classic Melvins, the weirder moments of Clutch and Jesus Lizard for starters.
Quote: “We wrote The Wait one year ago. It’s kind of a statement and kind of a warning: something’s coming, better prepare yourself. Now that the storm has come, you could take it as some sort of prophecy but you’d be wrong: prophecies are crap. Nothing has changed. The Wait finds ELM in a shinier, heat-fueled and darker landscape, adding tension to aggression and stripping it down to the basics.”

The eleven-track analog recording was captured by Paride Lanciani (Kash, Instrumental Quarter, Maniac Du Jour) and assisted by Alberto Costa, at Oxygen Recording Studios in Verzuolo, Cuneo, Italy in a week of retreat during the hottest summer to date. The state-of-the-art analog environment on the hills overlooking the flat land surroundings of Cuneo served as the ideal place for ELM to channel the mood of the songs into the tracks.
