The Crude Hissings of Bleek Noir is Delicious Darkness

May 26th 2018 will be a phenomenal day for what is considered Modern Gothic Inspired Music, and it comes to our talent deprived ears from an artist that has shown us not only technical talents but truly inspiring lyrical prowess,  one whom I can consider the Duke of darkness, Bleek Noir.

The new album,’ “Crude Hissings” has been presented to us for review, and we are, as always so very excited to hear this master of the dark arts has to say, we will present the review to you, but first, we give you a little scent of the new blood to be served-

With a dark and sweet, ghostly twang, the EP “Crude Hissings” start with a rambunctious Rockabilly inspired track “Where Do I Go Now”, not the mantra of the lost, but more of a question of where next to inspire mayhem , the dark humor in the anxiety of a madman looking for his next distraction. Followed by “I Smell Murder”, a carnival ride of the senses, upbeat tempo and you can imagine a sideshow barker, all in black, inviting you into the freak show, but the freaks are not in the cages, but surrounding the cages, there to protect the innocent within. Followed by “I Cower Too”, musically, a tango to entangle, to bind, to take you down, screaming for the sweet release of insanity. It is at this point, an unfortunate event, one that I will never recover from, the last song of the album, the very last track… like a vampire, at the first glance of the rising sun, knowing the tomb is waiting, and the morning will last too long , yielding only to the sweet darkness in a very long and eternal day but the last track “Black Betty” is divine, a crescendo of sound, coming at you from all sides at once, from above, from below, placing you at the center, deep within cradled in the loving arms of the dark, “Mmmm Black Betty”.

For those yet unfamiliar with his work, Bleek Noir is the Alternative/Dark/Lo-Fi project of songwriter, musician and recording artist Christopher J Fox.

Raising its ugly head into the world at the end of July 2017, Bleek Noir immediately spat out two releases. A double A-Side single “Harder Love/Draggin’ That Damn Thing Around” and the debut EP “Fresh Born Animal (And I’m Not Sure Who I Am)”. A number of single releases later, the second EP “The Garden de Sade” (a shamelessly dark, intense and angular offering) followed receiving unanimously positive reviews.

One would think we at IndiePulse have a flair for the Dramatic, possibly, but we love music that is unafraid to encourage the senses, and the work of Bleek Noir does just that, by captivating the images of a Victorian Era horror story and releasing it to an audience that takes that imagery and uses it to define themselves to cope with a world so mad, it makes Edgar Allen Poe’s work look like Nursery Rhymes.

It Is a Dark World today and Crude Hissings by Bleek Noir is actually a ray of black light that saves us from it.
