Metal Rouge - Gamble cassette DNT070
Metal Rouge's "Gamble" eschews their previous LP Soft Erase's martial drum machines and rock structures, delivering instead rudimentary jazz fire and blaring white-heat guitar continuums soaked in unintentional tape manipulation. Four tracks: a journey from pointillist guitar/trumpet sparring to a completely warped amorphous hell, an epic single minded guitar/vocal flare-out, a piano-driven cloud of massed utopian strings and a staggering primitive drum raga. Nine years into their existence Metal Rouge are still finding new ways to cast aside the false, uphold the unrefined and crawl into the marrow of the music.
Hand-numbered edition of 100 on dark blue shells with full color art by Christina Carter.
