Street Sects - The Morning After the Night We Raped Death
Noise, Industrial Street Sects is a act from the States that specializes in making music that disturbing and harsh as hell. Underneath all the harsh electronics lies influence from black metal bands. This release came out in February, and is titled The Morning After the Night We Raped Death. It's a three track EP lasting only in at seven minutes.

The first song, We Live, starts off by playing with some drums while nice electronic noise right over it. As the song progresses, we're fed in some ritual like chanting that eventually gets taken over by a screaming vocal set. The song never really takes a break in trying to absolutely destroy your ears, and I think that's something that this act has going for it.

While the second song may be titled Bliss, I doubt many will find peace on Earth in this song. Which is good for us, but bad for them. More harsh noise and drum work with stuttering effects and a warning signal like sound blasted me apart.

Fate On Her Knees was the last song on the EP and offered a song that had more of a rhythm to it than the previous ones. A lot of the random noises disappeared in place for a song that was pretty solid in what it was doing. As much as it changed, my favorite part was the final forty seconds where the eerie drums, vocals, and synth works came together to really send me off nice.

And, well, this left me off with a good impression. The harsh and disturbing sounds worked very well, and while there could be some improvements in the field of quality and overall length, I'd say this guy knows what he's doing.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
