Well, recently I simply can’t help this specific dark, atmospheric, sci-fi hardcore / metal substance working on me. Following the recent premieres of LLNN‘s adventurous offerings, here come ILLUSTRATIONS, hailing from San Antonio, Texas. Of course they are not as futuristic as LLNN, but their newest tracks have this specific feeling of transcendental, multidimensional tension, proving that ILLUSTRATIONS continue to investigate the sound defined on their 2014’s “In Vain” LP (also streaming below). Dive into this groovy, punk influenced metal/hardcore hybrid and grab their “Iron Rain” 7” now!
This is my death sentence, my pestilence.
You’ll never take this away from me.
Ashamed of nothing.
Your head to the ground, becoming one with reality.
As I taste the earth crumbling beneath me,
this is everything I could’ve hoped for.
The tears of blood fall, so deserving.
This is the end.
