RASPBERRY BULBS – before the age of mirrors – CDCDrelapse records2020
New York’s RASPBERRY BULBS (featuring members of BONE AWL and RORSCHACH,) make their Relapse Records debut with their highly anticipated new album, « Before the Age of Mirrors ». Forever defying the conventions of underground music, RASPBERRY BULBS continue to push the envelope via their subversive take on occult Punk and Black Metal. Through maniacal lyricism, raw guitar snarls channeled through gritty, 4 track recordings, and a wall of distortion, RASPBERRY BULBS suffocate the listener every step of the way.
RASPBERRY BULBS emphasize the volatile, confrontational attitudes of Punk with the discordant sounds of Lo-Fi Black Metal and inspirational fever dreams found only in weird fiction. In the band’s own words, « parts paranoia, anger, and insane humor to satisfy the most cynical minds, « Before the Age of Mirrors » was crafted for the times where we desperately look for a way forward and we seem, at this dazzling stage, almost prepared to step through the mirror. »
