Curse Of The Golden Vampire – Curse Of The Golden Vampire (1998)

What happens when you cross Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick, The Bug’s Kevin Martin and ATR’s Alec Empire? Well, you get Curse Of The Golden Vampire of course, and I assure you, this project is not the punchline to a shit joke.

This self titled record is not a million miles away from some of the sounds and textures experienced on Techno Animal records, or even on Godflesh’s Us & Them record. Its an interesting, and rather laid back affair of beats and paranoid atmospheres. Considering Empire’s involvement, I was expecting a much harsher or possibly high-power stonking hardcore attack, but for all intents and purposes, it is actually the opposite.
