Årabrot - "The Story of Lot"

New MusictheneedledropComment

"The Story of Lot," the last single from Norwegian noise rock collective Årabrot, is a left-field turn from an already left-field band.  The 15-minute piece is comprised of Kjetil Nernes recounting the Bible's tale of the drunken, incestuous title character over a propulsive, lurching bassline that amasses harsh electronic noise and feedback as it progresses. With this track, the band has effectively veered into industrial territory, and it's glorious to hear the genre performed with some teeth again.

"The Story of Lot" will take up much of Årabrot's new EP, Murder As Art, out today via Red Eye.
