Matthew Toye Sewer Goddess seamlessly blends elements of death metal with industrial noise and a twisted vocal delivery. Wholly unique and downright frightening at times. A very harrowing listen. Favorite track: Flog.

Keenan Johnston Emerging from the mire with a full backing band for their second LP, Sewer Goddess evolve from the torturous death industrial of their prior releases to a monolith of septic industrial doom. Slow, grinding guitars that evoke early Godflesh are led by desolate, clanking percussion while frontwoman Kristen Rose's orations and electronic grime fill out these six despoiled songs. At 26 minutes it is quite concise, but not to a fault. Very interested to see where they take this sound next. Favorite track: Black Meat And Bones.

Sewer Goddess’ 2010 CD debut, “With Dirt You Are One”, seemed to come and go in the blink of a rotted eye, and while there have been numerous tape, compilation, and live recordings since then, nothing could possibly prepare you for the evolution in sound that has occurred since then. Recent material and performances have certainly hinted at it, but “Painlust” goes beyond all expectations and delivers what is up to this point, their benchmark recording. Now backed by a full fledged band and recorded in studio, Kristen Rose and co. have taken a blade to the original Sewer Goddess template and ceremoniously cut the fat, leaving a lean, sinewy carcass that’s as much doom metal as it death industrial. The 6 tracks here are an asphyxiating death march that’s concise and devastatingly heavy, the lurching, sludge driven guitar, dissonant riffs, and bass all in a rigid lockstep with heaving, pneumatic percussion. Bound with bewitching and often maniacal vocal shrieks and moans, and heaps of ghastly electronic filth, it’s a brilliant dichotomy between human and machine, resulting in a listening experience that’s at once enthralling and terrifying. In jewel box with 8 page booklet, designed by Andre Coelho.
