Axis Of Perdition
"Urfe", the new album from The Axis Of Perdition, finds the band deeper into their idiosyncratic vision than ever before. A labyrinthine journey through the dark terrain of their subconscious, "Urfe" draws on a wealth of classic industrial, dark ambient and cinematic music and threads it together with a fevered, psychedelic part-narrative part-poetic performance from actor Leslie Simpson (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday, Beyond The Rave). The result is their most harrowing, dysfunctional and personal album to date, drawing musical influence from Swans, Godflesh, Esoteric, Angelo Badalamenti and the finest of Industrial music from Throbbing Gristle onwards. With "Urfe", The Axis Of Perdition transcend their humble origins and make music that is both their most uncompromising and their finest.
