Artist: ANGELBLOOD
Title: Mambo Mange
Format: LP
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Mambo Mange is the eponymous 4th & final album by a fine NY ensemble who unfortunately imploded at the peak of their game. Originally fronted by twin femme vocalists Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) & celebrated visual artist Rita Ackermann, for what would be the bands final foray, the duo enlisted Anders Nilsson (Aorta), Matt Heyner (NNCK), Dave Nuss (NNCK) & Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance, Cranium). Ackermanns Yoko Ono-inspired freak-outs, feline growls & orgasmic yodels and Bougatsos breathy wordless space panting over Matt the Count Heyners seriously beefy power chords, Nilssons sinewy solos, DeGraws bass thump & Nuss propulsive drumming made for the most thoroughly realized vision of Angelbloods art + metal sound. Angelblood played decidedly out of bounds & ahead of the curve. It was a risky proposition to begin with (who can get by playing heavy metal in Chelsea art galleries?) but goddamn if this isnt great music." - Locust.

Artist: ANGELBLOOD
Title: Labia Minora
Format: CD
Label: Printed Matter/Captain Trip
Country: USA/Japan
Price: $14.00
"On Angelblood⿿s new CD, Labia Minora, musical styles and influences mesh and collide in a simultaneously jarring and hypnotic sonic netherworld of hope and despair. Gnarled chants and incantations alternate with ethereal floating singing, conjuring the images and emotions of pagan ritual, blood sacrifice and the quest for redemption. Crunching rhythm guitars and bass pierced by screaming leads form the dark heavy metal undertow of the album⿿s sound. This is set to repetitive melodies with something of an earthy folk bent, creating a unique, swaying, dirge-like atmosphere ⿿ only to be disrupted by the blistering drums and the chainsaw drill of the speed metal reprise, the growl of the hunter-wolf, the bellow of the slain beast. The epic final cut balances on the edge of dissonance and noise, the croon of the sister-brethren, the blood of the slaughtered pig. Angleblood is Lizzi Bougatsos (vocals), Rita Ackermann (vocals), Brian DeGraw (bass), Dave Nuss (drums) and Anders Nilssen (guitar). On Labia Minora special guest Mick Barr (of Orthrelm and Chromtech) plays guitar. Angelblood was formed in the year 2000, and has played internationally in both music and art venues. Labia Minora is their third CD. In addition to being a band, Angelblood is also a performance art group, whose dark motifs and ritualized actions match the concerns of the band. Finally, Angelblood also creates collaborative art works, distinguished by a combination of distinctive drawing and edgy collage. In all of its various incarnations, Angelblood is characterized by a raw, almost desperate approach to art and life, realms which, in the Angleblood ethos, are indistinguishable. It is this rebellious attitude of refusal and iconoclasm, coupled incongruously, yet sincerely, with a sense of pathos and reverence, that sets Angleblood apart from the monotonous drone of monolithic culture." - Printed Matter.
