Black Sun Alchemy Decants Precious Metals at the Monterey
Fort Lauderdale's Black Sun Alchemy takes its cues from Werner Herzog films and delivers desperate screams of neo-power-violence over straight vocal cadence. Plus, the requisite juxtapositions of Bush administration follies as detailed in the video for "Into the Storm." It's easy to get a strong feel for Satan's Pimp Records-era power-violence/hardcore mixed with the better elements of Ministry's industrial.
Black Sun Alchemy delivers some heavy, chunky goods that are sure to satisfy people in need of reassurance that the Bush's empire is over but that its tendrils still wrap around our Obama reality. Politics aside, though, these guys can play. This is good, because they carry a more technologically adept torch for the Florida-centric bygone acts of Palatka and Ansojuan.
