Sol Invictus - Lex Talionis
Sol Invictus' debut album. i'm gonna be lazy and copy-paste part of a review i found of the album.
"Much of this album could just be described in terms of post-punk with folk influences, from the opening track Blood And Wine which is based on a simple, repeating pattern of piano notes (which comes back as a reprise in closer Wine and Blood) and the title track which follows it becomes evident that this is going to be an album based around plenty of gloomy, repetitive bass hooks. These appear in many of the songs and anchor the rest of the compositions well, which include some electronic noise influences, luscious acoustic guitars, thumping drum machines, basically what you would expect from a new wave group jamming with some guy on an acoustic guitar."
