Age of Distrust is upsetting as it is innovative, somehow confrontational without ever really taking any kind of discernible shape. It shifts and tumbles out of the darkness like it wants something from you. Sharp, unexpected textures bubble up from long, low rumbles and melt into pitched-down vocal samples from another era.
My darksynth band The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse now have our own website!
The Seven Whores are stoked to launch our new website on the eve of our debut EP Wicked Hands, coming out soon on Scanner Records.
We’ve all been there: someone shares a link with interesting content that you just can’t quite get to. Maybe you’ve hit your limit of free articles for the month.

Strap in for a long night with my electro-industrial band the Seven Whores of the Apocalypse as we guide you through the abandoned padded cells of Magisterium: a cage of bone-rattling beats wraps its claws around a rubbery analog bass and hushed vocals; a bewildering array of vintage synth arpeggios punctuate the atmosphere before the whole sacramental affair is catapulted to an 80s Berlin disco, where the area clergy finally break down and try on a pair of knee-highs spiked heels just to see what all the fuss is about. Includes a throbbing tech-house dub mix.
Enjoy, and happy Halloween 2021! 🎃
