“Choral thrash.” Sure, you could call your music that. It’s pretty much the metalgothest thing you could say, short of, like, “sad iron fetus weeping blood-thrash.” But I mean, if you’re Jorge Elbrecht, a fella who’s made glorious and lovely contributions to Lansing-Dreiden, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, and Violens, and who is now releasing a killer new 7-inch under the name Coral Cross, you can kinda do what you want. You can check out “The Coldest Steel Across Your Face Slides” here:
Available August 12 in the US and September 1 in the UK and Europe, Coral Cross - 001 is coming out via our friends at Mexican Summer. Elbrecht’s got some kinda crazy tour with Jimi Hey (BI, All Night Radio), Lev Weinstein (Krallice), and visual artist Max Hooper Schneider coming up in August that’s billed as a “one-time audio-visual presentation of the project.” So… PowerPoints? Elbrecht will hold the laser pointer and Schneider will ensure that only the very FINEST in clip art will be inserted into the slides. How fucking choral thrash is THAT?
