Go ‘Cruising’ Through Dark Post-Punk With Outer Limit Lotus
Norway is rewriting the book once again. You've probably heard of bands like Kvelertak, Okkultokrati and Haust not only pushing the limits of genre within heavy music, but rewriting the book to include their own chapters. Now, the members of Haust can be found moving further into the darkness with Outer Limit Lotus, a trio that explores dark post-punk, goth, deathrock, psychedelia and more to great effect. Think of the post-punk soundtrack to your drug-induced seppuku and you may get the picture.
Outer Limit Lotus are readying a new LP in the form of Cruising the Old World on October 28 via Sheep Chase Records. The focus of the band's video, "Cruising," is not too far off from the Al Pacino vehicle of the same name — an exercise in nihilism, self-loathing and touching the void. The track alone is enough to make you shudder, especially during the dark chorus and the falsetto that sounds like a cry from beyond the grave. Grab a coat — it's getting cold in here. Order yours via Sheep Chase.
