Japan Suicide: Santa Sangre

Italian post-punk band Japan Suicide have released Santa Sange, their new album on Spanish indie Unknown Pleasures Records. The eleven tracks will recall a number of post-punk bands, but comparisons are unfair, as this is a band that inhabits the very rocky edge unencumbered by homage to anyone. This album is dark, tense and perfect. The guitars cut like a depressive razor, enticing pleasure from the noise and flaying at any false pretense of happiness. This album glorifies a rawness that permeates its sublime beauty, delivering a post-punk portrait as authentic as a late night Soho walk. This is a definite must have. Watch the video for album track Circle, then stream and buy Santa Sangre at the link below.
