Newly formed black metal duo/recent Relapse signees POISON BLOOD will unleash their debut, self-titled EP next month. A collaboration between Horseback’s Jenks Miller and Krieg’s Neill Jameson was born out of Miller’s desire to write music that was an outlet for a more straightforward kind of aggression, POISON BLOOD‘s eponymous debut EP is a short but furious chronicle of cold, reptilian sonic terror.
In advance of its release, today Invisible Oranges is streaming “Deformed Lights” at THIS LOCATION where both Miller and Jameson talk in-depth about the track.
Issues Invisible Oranges, “POISON BLOOD’s ‘black metal’ isn’t totally black metal. Yes, it blasts and grates, and, yes, it boasts Krieg’s Neill Jameson’s throat-rending gargle, but there’s a lot more under the surface. Resting on a heavy foundation once led by Nick Blinko, POISON BLOOD’s mid-paced stomp finds a middle ground between Marko Laiho’s early, stumbling work as Beherit and the previously alluded Rudimentary Peni’s psychotic, minimal punk. However strict and simple, POISONBLOOD appears to expand outward in a strange sort of mental psychedelia, however foreboding. So, yes, POISON BLOOD, can be considered ‘blackened’ as much as it can find solace in the ‘’punk’ and ‘psychedelic’ tag, but it’s also not quite any of those. Yet again, Jenks Miller finds himself in the grey area to which he consistently holds dominion.”
