Top 50 Tracks of 2010: White Ring – We Rot

December 4, 2010

29. White Ring – We Rot.mp3

It’s those old devil blues, pulling you down with both hands, killing you with forces you can’t understand. The tempo may seem fast but the slurred, distorted and severely pitched backing belies the crystalline iridescence of the lead vocals, occasionally drowning it completely in a brutal mixture of crippling sorrow and intense fear.

There’s beauty all over in here, but it’s the beauty of the damned, intensified by its brevity. The light that burns twice as bright amplifies the darkness surrounding it.

More witches, houses and drag stuff.

The rest of the Top 50.
