EXCLUSIVE ALBUM STREAM: ELM – “The Wait”

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.
