Kuro – Neon5th June 2019
If Baron Von Frankenstein was into splicing DNA as opposed to just casually putting body parts together, he would take 25% from Jesus and the Mary Chain, 25% from Marilyn Manson, 25% from Fudge Tunnel and the remaining from Nine Inch Nails. He would then end up with conjoined twins and that would be called Kuro.
The 4 track, 15 minute E.P that is Neon is actually pretty good. The production, the song writing and the vocal delivery is really good. It just doesn’t have the soul or conviction of their peers
Out of the 4 tracks that appear on Neon, it’s hard to pick out a stand out track as they all blend into one. There’s not much to differentiate them. They all have the same quiet intro before breaking into a wall of techno and computerized sound. Think Marilyn Manson, The Golden Age Of Grotesque era. Particularly the song, This Is The New Shit but cut out the bite of John 5s guitar and you’ve got a pretty good understanding of where I’m coming from.
Sadly, this isn’t the new shit, it has indeed been done before and somewhat better.
