Evil Nine They Live!
- Words: Connie Hwong
- Label: Marine Parade
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
This Brighton duo's latest electro-metal album, inspired by the ’80s horror oeuvre of John Carpenter, reps monster-mash baddies of all breeds: rapping zombies (with guest spots from El-P and Beans), emo ghosts (Kitsune's David Autokratz), and Underworld-worthy vampire club-kids (just about every other track on the record). The combination of sinister dancefloor breaks, menacing samples, and a well-edited guestlist of collaborators produces an impressively catchy mix of goofy beats and campy pop culture. Who says you can't have fun while you're out busting up some ghosts?
