Full Length Jewel Case CD
Originally composed for a controversial staging of the classic greek tragedy, "Medea" is shinjuku thief's most dramatic, dynamic and sinister work to date. Notwithstanding its extreme violence, it might also be one of their most beautiful. Fragile melodies sung by boy sopranos float above demonic choirs and malevolent orchestras only to be ripped apart by screaming sheets of industrial noise. Oscillating between lush musical seduction and a level of brutality as yet unprecedented across the band's backcatalog, "Medea" will appeal to fans running the gambit of dead can dance, raison d'etre and in slaughter natives in one corner to merzbow, and brighter death now in the other. A recomended release with just a few copies left.
