A couple cuts from D.I.E. Minor by Weedkiller, featuring Eric Czar on guitars and bass, and vocals by Kevin ‘Bocko’ Corrigan. Self-produced and recorded, it’s very interesting, very different, and very good in my opinion.
Instrumentally it’s reminiscent of Alice In Chains’ 1994 EP, Jar of Flies.
Bocko’s dark and growling vocals are an acquired taste…and take some getting used to. That being said however, they contrast nicely against Eric’s melodic guitar and fretless bass playing. Discord and contrast is a common trait to many of Eric’s ambient pieces on youtube as well.
I’ve got the entire D.I.E. Minor CD on my iPod, and I love it.
Enjoy, and Turn It Up!
