DETH Records is an exciting new label founded by SINS in Toronto. With an impressive roster of electro-goth type acts, they chose to showcase that talent with the release of DETH VOL. 1, their first compilation album. The main single from that is an, of course, excellent collaboration between their two flagship acts: SINS and Vierance. Check out the video in all it’s gothy glory, then go and buy/stream the comp. We foresee exciting things coming this way from DETH.
Yep, we’re suckers for Vierance and their bleak ‘n’ terrifying synthpop from a world that has never known happiness, a world that in fact drains happiness from other nearby worlds and converts it into dark matter. This is the universe where “Athens Cries” is from. Featuring huge arpeggiators and haunting vocals, it’s both danceable and ambient at the same time. If you’re into it, be sure to check out the video for the also-amazing “Raven” which we posted back in April.
“Athens Cries” is on Vierance’s killer EP Semblance, but it’s also on a highly-anticipated new compilation from Deth Records (that label run by the corrupted soul they call Sins) is putting out, full of some of Toronto’s evilest unreleased gems. Deth Vol. 1 is out June 21, watch out for it!
Public Service Announcement: do not wear flowing garments while next to fire on a windy day. ESPECIALLY if you’re doing it REALLY CREEPILY as Katherine Warner does in this video. Vierance have really stepped up their game as of late, and the new single from the sophomore EP absolutely delivers on all the promise we’ve seen from them. Semblance is out now on Deth Records, a new label fronted by Toronto’s SINS.
This band still is quite mysterious to us, but I think that’s the general idea. They are one of the gothiest that we’ve heard in a long time, which, of course is always great in our books. Toronto’s Vierance make scary, atmospheric sort of sad gothic synth punk. They recently released a four song EP on their BandCamp, and it is well worth your time.
