IRM "The Cult Of The Young Men" CD
Cat No: APEX005
- - -
ANNIHILVS proudly presents our first proper CD release from IRM: THE CULT OF THE YOUNG MEN.
Returning with a singularly cold, desolate and lonely release, IRM continues to fervently espous irreligious, body-obsessed abstractions of the highest order. Departing from the aggressive PE outbursts of the past, the duo of Erik Jarl and Martin Bladh sculpt pulsating drones and powerfully dark sounds, as the bleeding wound of IRM continues to flower.
THE CULT OF THE YOUNG MEN contains 'live' tracks recorded in the studio, selections from live performances (including the APEX Fest), and a cover of JOY DIVISION's 'Here are the Young Men.' -Label Description
