Had this in stock ages ago but it sold out almost immediately; if you missed out on this platter of odd Italian goth/punk/black metal weirdness, here's another shot...

Here's another Ep featuring Nuit Noire that follow up similar splits between this blackened French punk band and bands like Circle Of Ouroborus and Call Me Loretta, released on Italian label Avant!.

The two songs from Nuit Noire are "Opening The Portal" and "Fairie Punk", the first beginning with swarming, tinny, mosquito-buzz guitars soon joined by the simple, primitive drumming and bursts of sloppy blastbeats; when the song really gets going, it keeps those splattery drums and blastbeats alternating with the cavernous low-fi punk, the guitars spinning eerie trebly melodies that are quite catchy, the howling vocals way up in the mix, sounding like some weird mix of Les Legions Noire and Rudimentary Peni. The second song is more of a blasting anthemic ripper, with galloping drums driving the maudlin blackened melody till it turns into a killer gloom-rock hook at the middle of the off-kilter blackened punk, where Nuit Noir mastermind Tenebras really lets loose with his fey, sorta Rozz Williams-like wail. I love this stuff...

"Call" by His Electro Blue Voice compliments NN's side nicely with a new song of their own heavy, driving goth punk, a bass-heavy bit of gloom-ridden post-punk with a burly metallic edge to the guitars, deep vocals with a Brit accent, but then the second half of the song comes in, and it turns into a creepier, more lurching affair with gnarled rockabilly guitar lines, pounding drums and some cobwebbed organ drones all coming off like a warped, heavier take on The Cramps or Gun Club crossed with the obvious Joy Division influence. There's a definite gothy vibe in there but its accented with weird electronic noises and chugging metallic guitars. Pretty goddamn cool.

Limited to three hundred copies.
