Album: The Dawn of Carnage

Blurb: Pittersplatter reissues a special edition of The Dawn of Carnage that’s full of nightmarish soundscapes that don’t fail to create catchy and well written tales of misanthropy and horror.


 

Oklahoma electronic project Pittersplatter, the brainchild of Worm Splatter, has rereleased the 2010 LP The Dawn of Carnage in a special edition format. There’s plenty of dark, nightmarish imagery here and thankfully, it enhances the songs rather than eclipsing them. The vocals are fitting for the eerie synth-heavy music on this release, with just the right amount of distortion. This special edition features two new tracks – the atmospheric “Goblin” and the wonderfully creepy “Connection” – as well as two remixed versions of “Necrotek” by Frontal Boundary and Mudshark, respectively.

“Hopeless” and “Lamb of God” are standout tracks, while “RIP” would easily fill a dance floor. Reminiscent of some ‘90s industrial releases, even without guitars, some of the songs go on a bit too long without really adding anything. There are a few tracks on the album – “Die for Me” and “Nod,” most notably – that seem a little uninspired when compared to the other songs, but even what might seem like filler here is fairly solid.

Pittersplatter use the term “electronic nightmare music” to describe the band’s sound, and it’s fitting. Overall, this is a good release that manages to focus on actual songwriting and not so much the usual sampling that pervades the genre, and fans of horror and dark imagery should find plenty to haunt them here.
