A Poison Mind Electro-Industrial The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse There is not much more of an introduction that I can give The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse (you can check out the reviews for their previous singles 'Parasite' and 'Pathological' for that. Instead, I'm going to be skipping right into the dirty deed of giving my honest opinion on their latest single 'A Poison Mind'.The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse · A Poison Mind (Preview)What is something that I am enjoying about The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse is that their style is becoming easier and easier to pick out from the crowd. Though electro-industrial in name, I constantly find myself allocating underlying beats to the italo-disco crowd while maintaining a dark, dancefloor edge. Their vocals are less sung and more of a harsh whisper, making them hard to understand. However, I view vocals like this as less a voice to be understood and more of an additional instrument in the mix. The two-minute mark allows the synths to dominate wherein a sample that reminds me of 90s hip-hop decorates the piece. The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse also demonstrate immense skill at changing up their beats consistently. With a five-minute and forty-three second track, this is a must. I've no complaints to give to this single. If The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse are working towards a full-length album with these singles, then it should be announced sooner rather than later. 'A Poison Mind' will be out on June 27th and will be available via the band's Bandcamp page. Be sure to be on the lookout for it. This review was commissioned through our Ko-fi page. 450

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
