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
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.
Black Sun Alchemy, 9 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the Monterey Club, 2608
S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-467-1169, or click here.
