Band: DEATH INDEX
Who: Inflammable duo – Carson Cox and Marco Rapisarda – from
Vatican City, Italy that mix industrial, punk rock, Goth, and synth-wave
into a blistering sound. Back in 2016, they released their self-titled
debut album. Check it on Spotify.
New single: HUMAN / MACHINERY
First shared piece of their new upcoming album ,
titled Civilized By A Lie. Out on 7 July.
Pre-order info here.
Cox about the single: “Not a day goes by where I don’t think of the violence of machinery and how humanity lives side by side with planes, trains, and cargo trucks. Every day is like living with a tamed beast that doesn’t attack but roars its gears. The city is deaf with it but people seem to look at it as a circus where no one can get hurt until one of the tigers misses a cue.”
TUTV: Human / Machinery is a relentless industrial punk-rock shocker interwoven here
and there with darkwavish synths. Deranged guitars, thumping drum/bass and ghostly vocals. All elements for a mechanical mindfucker are in place here. Think Front 242 and Nine Inch Nails having a backbreaking noise contest with Rammstein as the jury. Get the wall-of-titanic-sound picture? You just can’t ignore the Herculean gusto and intimidating bravado of Death Index. Capisce?
The accompanying video clip is pretty in-your-face too with flashes of horrific
robots bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s deadly Terminator machine to mind.
