#23 METRO CULT "New space b/w Ghost" E.P.

2 tracks of cold Copenhagen post punk/gothrock.
Recorded by Las Ballade (Hjertestop/The War Goes On) and mastered by Peter Peter (Sods/Sort Sol) and come off sounding like a lost ADS recording, or even TSOL at times.
Should appeal to people into the recent wave of international goth/deathrock/post/synth punk for sure...
Limited to 200 copies.

Invisible Guy

They are few and far in between, but once you find your death-rock - you can't help but listen to it. It feels like Metro Cult bring something new to the table, at least in form of nuances in their death-rock shaped post-punk, with an entangled web of both dark punk influences and a picky new-wave sound, together with a perfectly laden mat of synthesizer spookiness.
These dastardly fellows from Copenhagen match their stark and darkened image with the sound they're conveying. The band itself consists of Christoffer Bagge (Vocals/Guitar), Johannah Jørgensen (Synth), Klaus Nielsen (Bass) and Johan Schultz (Drums). Their music makes me want to make my way to a batcave, even though they rarely even exist anymore.
A couple of days ago they released two tracks, namely "New Space" and "Ghost" - which was recorded at Subversive Studios in Copenhagen, with the help of Lasse Ballade and Peter Peter. It was also released by Adult Crash as a 7¨ vinyl, on the 21st of September. They are limited to 200 copies, so I suggest you go and get one. Either you buy it from Adult Crash, or you contact the band. The cover art was created by Sally Dige Jørgensen. Listen to their two tracks down below, and remember to put in some money for it if you like it. You can also download them for free.

Living In The City

A two-sided, two tracked 7" of great old school, up tempo, delay-vox driven post-punk, drawing and dragging you into its' great mythical depths of melancholy while giving you an adrenaline rush through it's intense tempo. Man! I fucking love it! - Slambert

Passive Aggressive

Metro Cults debut-7" har nogle måneder på bagen, men da den ikke har været omtalt på P/A før, fortjener nogle ord med på vejen. “New Space/Ghost” singlen er – ligesom Dead Instrument – indspillet i Balladens studie, men her hører lighederne også op. Metro Cult spiller 80′er-inspireret koldkrigs-postpunk, hvad der jo er meget passende i disse apokalyptiske tider.
Singlens to numre tager Warsaw/Joy Division-oplægget og tilfører det en del mere tempo og aggressivitet. De fire unge københavnere er beslægtet med deres kollegaer i Moth, Chainsaw Eaters og Melting Walkmen, men har en noget mere punket tilgang. En overbevisende debut, der er 100% godkendt af undertegnede, som har set dem live utallige gange. Metro Cult har om nogen i dette land et perfekt goth-look, men lad dig ikke narre af eyeliners og det store Robert Smith-hår. Det her er postpunk, man kan pogo og stagedive til.
En gut, der hedder Peter Peter, har i øvrigt mastereret udgivelsen.
