Pain Is Beauty/Hesitation Marks
two albums. one day. 09/03/13.
Pain Is Beauty - Chelsea Wolfe
third standard studio album from the gothic alternative singer-songwriter, promises to have more electronic and industrial elements along with her trademark dark blend of folk, experimental music, and trace elements of doom metal. absolutely psyched for this release, especially considering her previous album Apokalypsis is one of my favorite albums of all time.
Hesitation Marks - Nine Inch Nails
speaking of all-time favorite albums, the new NIN is looking more and more like a throwback to the wonderful Downward Spiral era of the act's history, utilizing the same graphic designer who did the all of the artwork for that release as well as reusing the Downward Spiral-style typeface and lettering on the cover of Hesitation Marks' first single, "Came Back Haunted". really enjoying that single as well, especially because it reminds me of a fusion between the more accessible moments of The Downward Spiral (which were few and far between) and the catchier stylings of With Teeth (an album that, in my opinion, gets more criticism than it deserves).
so yeah. September 3, 2013. going to be an amazing day.
