Servants of the Apocalyptic Goat Rave
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Sublight
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Bong-Ra and Sickboy have resurrected the carcass of rave and trained it to serve their demonic visions. Whether they're layering high-octave trance synths with gnarly dirges or pounding grotesquely distorted 200-BPM-plus kicks, these two post-breakcore prophets outdo any previous project they've ventured upon. You can't help but love a song entitled "Glowstyx for the Dead Children," which incorporates simple organ sounds, bestial, processed swells, and the fever of jungle at its most intense. If Anton LaVey had a record label, Servants would most certainly be the first (and maybe last) release.
