Review: Catholic Spit – I’m Your God Now / Die Alone

If you need a punk doses that will last for a while, you should encourage yourself to listen to some Catholic Spit. First track “I’m Your God Now” really opens the floodgates from the more punk-oriented sound, so it can diminish itself within the realms of death-rock. Even though the sound-scape is pretty much lo-fi, the sound is excellent and extraordinary when it comes to the combination of those two genres. A really interesting listening, and I love the little touch on the crash-cymbal which you can hear throughout the song. Enjoyable death-rock riffs guides me throughout a wicked landscape of the most nocturnal and non-sacred things known for me yet. They really bring together the traditional sound of death-rock and manage to make it feel even more punkier than it usually is. Deathrock that I listen to tend to be more on the rock-oriented scale of things, which brings me back to the fact that they have some qualities that could be compared to 45 Grave, with a hint of Gothic Girls on the edges. They’ve channeled the quirky but quintessentially weird formula that the last-mentioned band really has when it comes to the sound-scape. It’s nice to see the grasp around the roots, but at the same time feeding and buffing it up with some nice punk.

In the next track “Die Alone“, they get to the point quicker than in the first song. With a baseline like that, it feels like I’m completely entrenched with the darkness it spills out. The thoughtful but outdrawn intro forces the sound-scape into a quick fury of punk goodness. Whereas the drums stumble upon themselves and release all the anger in the world. But it also feels like they’ve managed to contrast the sound-scape a little bit better, when they don’t blend the punk-oriented stuff with the more pushy deathrock. I don’t know if the quality of this release is supposed to be lo-fi, but if it is, there’s a charming side to it too. It sounds way more underground than it probably would’ve if it had been a little bit more polished. Also, the grand finale and outro is one of the best things I’ve heard for a while. This band has got a lot of potential, and it’s not really going to waste. Hopefully another release from them will come my way and I’m hoping that it will land in my hands so I get to have a peek on it too. Certainly one of the albums you should buy if you have the money for it, pretty cheap for such a great release.

You can buy it over at their bandcamp which is over here or listen to it below and make up your mind.
