A Patient Man
DEATHWISH INC Salt Lake City chaosmongers take a twin-track route to devastation
A Patient Man is a record of two emotions: aggression and sadness. Opening on the hellacious I Am Healed, this is uncontrollable, grinding crust that’s constantly on the attack, given a terrifying edge by Anthony Lucero’s acidic roars, like a caged animal looking for a weak spot to break free and seek revenge. But there is vulnerability. Amid the chaos sit dark brooding tales in the vein of Nick Cave. To Achlys shows a warmer side in search of rejuvenation: a cry for help instead of violence. Surrounded by further blasts of intensity with lyrics written in piss and vinegar, Cult Leader tackle religion, death, pain and survival, delivered in a voice that darts from Beelzebub to Gabriel. Closer The Broken Right
Hand Of God is devastating, as draining as it is fulfilling. You’ll need some quiet time after this.
