The Austin Music Minute shall mince no words in attempting to describe the tumultuous and chaotic poetry of Future Death. It’s like opening the floodgates and directing the storm toward the ears and the mind. You may move forward at breakneck speeds or suddenly meet a barrage of dramatic pauses, leaps, last-minute tempo changes – or perhaps a combination of all of the above in one track.
Future Death recently released their self-titled album, an avant-garde mind-meld of altered sonic states, basically shattering boundaries and erupting in explosions of chaotic rhythms, guitar seizures and these faraway vocals that, although distant, lure you within the seismic fray like sirens. The album is available on Bandcamp for free but donations are being accepted, which will all go toward the completion of their next album, due for release early next year.
This is a show you won’t want to miss. Join Future Death for their album release party tonight at Empire Control Room, 607 E. 7th St., complete with mind-blowing wall projections covering 1,000 square feet in the venue. The bill includes performances by Thousand Foot Whale Claw, Horse Lords and My Education. An evening of experimental bliss. Doors open at 9 p.m. Recommended.
